Liberty Cap Mushroom (Psilocybe semilanceata), is a species of fungus that produces the psychoactive compounds psilocybin and biocytin. It is both one of the most widely distributed psilocybin mushrooms in nature, and one of the most potent. However, the mushrooms have a distinctive conical bell-shaped cap, up to 2.5 cm (1.0 in) in diameter, with a small nipple-like protrusion on the top. The cap of P. semilanceata is 5–25 mm (0.2–1.0 in) in diameter and 6–22 mm (0.24–0.87 in) tall. It varies in shape from sharply conical to bell-shaped, often with a prominent papilla (a nipple-shaped structure).

Various Types Liberty Cap Mushrooms

  • Psilocybe liniformans are distinguished by a slimy border exactly under the lamella.
  • Psilocybe fimetaria on the other hand has more of a blue base than other Liberty caps mushrooms. The pointy Liberty caps mushroom, as the name implies, has a sharp cap.
  • Stropharia fimetaria, then there is Psilocybe liniformans. They contain the same psychoactive substance as Mexican and Hawaiian truffles. Even so, Liberty cap mushrooms have another effect. You could compare the difference in effect to the difference between wine as well as beer. The beverages contain alcohol yet one becomes drunk in a different way from both. This is the result of wine or beer containing different substances which give the alcohol another effect. In the same way, there is also a difference in effect if you compare liberty cap mushrooms with other mushrooms containing psilocybin.

How To Identify Liberty Cap Mushrooms

You find them on grassy peats and clay grounds, such as old clay dykes or dug-up farmland. This ground is barren or lightly fertilized. If you find a mushroom in another spot, for example in a forest or on a tree, then it will certainly be no liberty cap mushroom.

They have a conical hat with pointed blotch. These have an average section of 5 up to 15 mm and are also 6 to 13 mm high. However, When fresh they are olive-green to greyish-brown. If you let them dry they change into straw yellow or ochre. The spores are black and purple-brown. Also, the lamellae are pale brown-grey to violet-brown. The stem is 5 up to 9 cm long with a section of approximately 1 up to 2 mm.
