If mushroom spores do not contain Psilocine or Psilocybine, does this mean that Australians can legally import mushroom growing kits?

Have any Aussies used Sjamaan successfully without any legal ramifications?

Would love to know this is all ok so I can go about ordering some mushie growing kits! =]

This is the place you will find the answer with your own eyes:

Import Conditions (ICON) database at

I would say from what I've found out the answer is yes, if they have no trace of Psilocine or Psilocybine.

I myself keep a little diary of what I did to find out about legal highs, in the coming days or weeks will probably look into the mushroom import too, as I'm not having any luck finding them wild.

I am very greatful for your info.
Please also look into the import and sales of mushroom grow supplies, like spores, kits, etc.
What about mescaline cacti? San Pedro (Trichocereus pachanoi) is widely used as an ornamental cactus and to have other cacti grow opun for it is the fastest growing cacti on earth.

In general the mescaline cacti grow slowly, but the San Pedro is the fastest growing cacti species in the world. I have some of them on my balcony and they have grown about 15 to 20 Cm in one year. From the San Pedro species you need about 20 Cm for one full trip.

Also interesting for Ozzies to find out if you are allowed to order certain products.
