The Jedi Mind F* mushroom strain is a rather new variety, and although there is not much known about its exact place of origin, we do know that it appeared sometime in the early 2000s. The name of this strain shows that it was named in reference to the popular Star Wars franchise, where some individuals known as Jedi could play mind games with others, aptly called Jedi mind tricks.
The spores of the Jedi Mind F* variety are dark purple in color, so much so that they can appear black. This strain is famously known as being for experienced mycologists, microscopists, and researchers due to the fact that the strain has a number of unique features.
It is a fast colonizer that when mature produces large caps, thick stems, and when damaged or bruised, produces a dark blue coloration indicating its high levels of potency which is part of the reason why this strain is so popular for research. And with its largely unknown heritage, taxonomists will enjoy decoding the history and origin of the strain too.
Preferring subtropical climates with high humidity and mild winters, the Jedi Mind F* strain is one of the more unique strains that microscopists and other researchers can still learn a lot about. And thanks to the high demand for spores from this variety, it is also a great addition to any collection made of rare and hard to find strains of mushroom spores.
