Baeocystin is a mushroom alkaloid and analog of the psychedelic hallucinogenic drug psilocybin, a tryptamine derivative. It is found as a minor compound in most psychoactive mushrooms together with psilocybin, norbaeocystin, and psilocin. Little information exists with regard to human pharmacology, but in Magic Mushrooms Around the World, Jochen Gartz reports being aware of a study in which "10 mg of baeocystin were found to be about as psychoactive as a similar amount of psilocybin."
First isolated from the mushroom Psilocybe baeocystis, and later from P. semilanceata (Repke & Leslie 1977) and first synthesized by Troxler et al. (1959) Baeocystin is a demethylated derivative of psilocybin.
