This guide will take you through everything you need to know about the liberty cap mushroom, from its history and appearance to its effects and potential risks.

What are liberty cap mushrooms?

First named Agaricus semilanceatus by Swiss mycologist Elias Magnus Fries and known by the common name of liberty cap mushrooms or witch’s hat mushrooms, Psilocybe semilanceata (or P. semilanceata) is a psychedelic mushroom. They’re a member of the genus Psilocybe and are in the ‌Strophariaceae family. They have the highest psilocybin content discovered so far. The cultivated fruit bodies of liberty caps have an average of 1.12% psilocybin, no psilocin, and .21% baeocystin (a naturally occurring psychoactive compound) (1).

Identifying liberty cap mushrooms

Liberty caps vary in color and are hygrophanous, which means they can appear to change color and transparency depending on the level of moisture in their environment. This is one reason why the mushroom’s fruit bodies may change color when moist and appear dull when dried out. Because of this, they can appear chestnut brown and dry to a light tan. The gills of a liberty cap mushroom move from a brownish color to purple-brown; spores can also be a dark purple-brown color.

Most of the time, liberty caps mushrooms are easy to identify with their bell-shaped pileus or conical cap. The genus ‌Conocybe also has a similar cap and contains toxic compounds. Liberty cap mushroom may also be confused with the Galerina species of mushrooms. These dangerous lookalikes contain harmful compounds that can cause severe kidney and liver damage and may be fatal if ingested.

Another identifier to look out for is an annular zone. Many psilocybes develop this ring-like band that breaks apart as the mushroom cap grows and expands (1).

Where can you find liberty cap mushroom?

Look for liberty cap mushrooms in pastures or other grassy areas. In North America, you can find these mushrooms west of the Cascade mountain range from Northern California and into the Pacific Northwest, including British Columbia. You can also find these shrooms in grassland habitats throughout Europe, including Ireland, France, Holland, Norway, and Switzerland (1).

Liberty cap mushrooms are psychedelic mushrooms, which means they contain psilocybin and, under federal law, are illegal in most states. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.

For example, in places like Oregon and Colorado, recent legislative changes have made possession of small amounts of psilocybin mushrooms a low-priority offense or legal in some cities. It’s wise to keep in mind that laws regarding these types of substances can vary widely and change frequently, so it’s always a good idea to familiarize yourself with your local laws.

For example, Rhode Island recently moved to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of psilocybin mushrooms, while other states like California and Michigan are currently considering similar. And Missouri and Oklahoma are greenlighting bills promoting further research on psychedelic mushrooms.

Psst: It’s not just the United States that has stringent laws around hallucinogenic mushrooms. In the United Kingdom, psilocybin mushrooms are labeled a class A drug along with LSD. Canada, Australia, Japan, Germany, France, Mexico, and New Zealand all have laws prohibiting psilocybe mushrooms. However, some of those rules and regulations are evolving as some countries are legalizing psilocybin for mental health treatment.

Historical and medicinal uses for liberty cap mushrooms

And while it’s likely liberty cap mushrooms were used in sacred ceremonies, our information isn’t always well documented. It is often passed down through traditional folklore or anecdotal accounts.
