Alleged magic mushrooms (Psilocybe cubensis) test as ergosterol, a compound present in ergot and many other fungi

“We’re not sure what to say about this result. Plant-based and fungal materials pose special challenges. Ergosterol is a substance that is present in the cell membranes of fungi.”

EcstasyData entry shows a brown, yellow and off-white dried fungal matter that was sourced in Dallas, TX as “Psilocybe cubensis grown with DiPT,” but which tested as nothing more than ergosterol, a compound found in the cell membrane of fungi. No DiPT was detected.

*According to Material Safety Data Sheet 98% pure Ergosterolmay cause eye, skin, respiratory and digestive tract irritation.

​*According to PubChem Ergosterol is a steroid occurring in fungi.
