Yes, our mushroom spores are legal in most states within the United States. This legality is because they do not contain psilocybin or psilocin, the active compounds found in psychedelic mushrooms. The legality of psilocybe cubensis mushroom spores is distinct from the mushrooms themselves, which are classified as Schedule I substances. However, it’s essential to note that we cannot ship to California (CA), Idaho (ID), and Georgia (GA) due to state-specific regulations. Residents of these states are restricted from purchasing our products.

No, consuming psilocybe cubensis spores is strictly prohibited. At The Spore Depot, our focus is solely on supporting microscopy research and taxonomy purposes. We do not condone or encourage the ingestion or cultivation of psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. Any inquiries regarding the cultivation of these mushrooms will result in order cancellation. We prioritize ethical use and adherence to all legal guidelines concerning mushroom spores.

Once your order has been processed and shipped, you will receive two emails to keep you informed. The first email will be from Stamps.com, providing you with tracking information for your package. The second email will be from us, confirming that your order has been successfully shipped. With this information, you can easily track your package and estimate its delivery time.

We value prompt and reliable shipping to ensure your satisfaction. To meet your needs, we utilize USPS (United States Postal Service) for all orders. Our shipping options include First Class and Priority shipping. First Class shipping typically takes 3-5 business days for delivery, while Priority shipping usually takes 2-3 business days. These delivery estimates are subject to change based on your location and the current postal service workload.

As previously mentioned, we do not ship to residents of California (CA), Idaho (ID), and Georgia (GA) due to specific regulations and restrictions within these states. To ensure compliance with the law and avoid any potential legal complications, we are unable to fulfill orders from these locations.

To maintain the viability and cleanliness of your spores, we recommend storing spore syringes and liquid cultures in a refrigerator. Refrigeration is essential to extend the shelf life of the spores and prevent contamination. Proper storage ensures that your spores remain viable for microscopy research and future studies.
