Psilocybe Mexicana are psychedelic mushroom. Its first known usage was by the natives of Central America and North America over 2,000 years ago. Known to the Aztecs as teonanácatl from Nahuatl: teotl “god” + nanácatl “fungus”. This species was categorized by French botanist Roger Heim.
Psilocybe Mexicana / Psilocybe Mexicana spores
Psilocybe Mexicana is a psychedelic mushroom which was known to be used by the natives of Central America and North America over 2,000 years ago. The native Aztecs referred to P. mexicana and other magic mushrooms as “teonanacatl,” which roughly translates to “flesh of the gods.”
psilocybe mexicana’s cap is 1-2cm in diameter, conic with a small, protruding tip at the center. When young, the cap is an ocherous brown but takes on a straw color with age, sometimes with light bluish or greenish tones, indicating the parts where it may have been handled. The gills beneath the cap are gray to purple brown with white edges. This moves downward towards the stem, or the stipe, which can be anywhere between 4 to 10 cm tall. It grows darker in areas depending on climate. mexicana produces dark purple brown spore prints as well as a strong, starchy flavor and smell. It also has the ability to produce sclerotia, a dormant form of the organism beneath the ground. It’s basically an underground mushroom. It provides protection from wildfires and other natural disasters.
In the wild, Psilocybe mexicana produces fruiting bodies from May to October. These mushrooms can grow solitarily or in small groups among moss located in roadsides, trails, meadows, cornfields, and the grassy areas bordering deciduous forests.
Psychedelic mushrooms / Psilocybe mexicana Effects
Psilocybe mexicana is perfect for beginners because it is one of the mildest psychedelic mushrooms on earth. You will start experiencing the effects of fresh magic truffles at a dose of 5 grams. However, these effects aren’t intense. From 10 grams onwards, a medium trip takes place, and a mind-blowing, strong trip starts at 15 grams. If you feel like you need to get more out of your P. mexicana trip, you can always consume more truffles. Rest assured that psilocybin from magic mushrooms and truffles do not cause a physical addiction, dependence, or overdose.
The Psilocybe mexicana truffle variety from Truffle Magic guarantees to give you a nice, euphoric trip. It’s light enough for a beginner and to enjoy a great night with friends. The species is common in Mexico, growing among moss along roadsides and trails, humid meadows or cornfields, in particular in the grassy areas bordering deciduous forests, and limestone regions. Common at elevations between 300-550 metres (980-1,800 ft), rare in lower elevations, known only from Mexico and Guatemala.
P. mexicana Extra
Psilocybe mexicana is popular in all its forms, some of which are legal depending on local jurisdiction. Along with fruiting bodies (mushrooms), P. mexicana readily forms sclerotia and psilocybin-containing mycelium. Both of the latter forms are now available online and for sale in some cities and countries. These mushrooms will fruit on manure compost/coir based substrates, as well as ryegrass seed, rye grain, and probably many others. Probably just about any casing will do, though I’ve found that the addition of clean sand to any casing results in greater yields.
