Gymnopilus Validipes


Throughout the world, there are thought to be approximately 150 species of Gymnopilus mushrooms, 75 of which are thought to grow in North America. From all these mushroom species, only ten have been shown to be psilocybin-active. Gymnopilus validipes is one such psilocybin-active, weakly to mildly psychoactive mushroom. Like its relatives, G. validipes is a medium to large, wood-loving mushroom, with characteristic rusty orange to yellow-orange spore print.
