The penis envy is one of the most notorious strains of psilocybe cubensis out there. Its strange name comes from its distinctly phallic shape, but in addition to its whimsical appearance and nomenclature, the penis envy is respected as one of the most psychotropic potent mushrooms available in Canada.
The origins of the penis envy mushroom have supposedly been lost to time. The evidence seems to suggest that the strain was developed at some point in the mid-to-late 70s; anecdotal accounts varyingly attribute their discovery to the revered psychonaut Terence McKenna, while others insist that the penis envy was first developed by an anonymous scientist. The truth may never be revealed, but the shroom isn’t going anywhere.
Penis envy is known to produce a strong, and well-balanced high. Expect to experience time dilation, visual hallucinations, trails, fractal surfing, etc. The mood of the high is characterized by a rather light euphoria. For a beginner, we recommend a dosage of around 1.5-2 grams to get your feet wet. If you’re a little more experienced and want to experience the full high, a 3.5-5 gram dosage should blast you away. As always, please use caution, and don’t ever mix with other drugs or alcohol. Warning: these are extremely potent. Use with caution and with care. We recommend having another individual with you if you are new to consuming psychedelics.
This variant is known to be the most potent of Cubensis mushrooms, but there are no reliable test results to confirm this fact because of current legality issues.
It is however, well documented among experienced growers in many countries that the nutrient availability and diversity of the substrate on which the mushrooms are grown directly effects the ability of any strain to produce potent fruits. Low nutrient substrates such as brown rice flour will inevitably produce fewer mushrooms of a much lower potency than organic mixed substrates. To avoid limiting fruit size, abundance and the production of psilocybin always use the most nutrient diverse substrate mix available. We of course recommend our BOOM Blocks Which are often called the easiest all in one mushroom growing mix ever created. For more experienced growers or those who prefer bulk or monotub methods a great choice is this ready to grow Monotub Mushroom Growing Kit. Our mushroom substrates will work excellent for growing ANY variety of these magical mushrooms and our selection of premium mushroom growing kits can grow any mushrooms you choose.
Many informal reports mention that the experience obtained by consuming Penis Envy mushroom is more powerful, euphoric, and visual than other magic mushrooms of the same family. This intense effect is attributed to a higher concentration of psychotropic alkaloids. Modern pharmacology has recently been examining
How potent is Penis Envy? How should I dose it?
The potency of all penis envy mushrooms is consistently higher than that of any other Psilocybe cubensis strains. Consequently, they are often considered the most potent of all magic mushrooms, with up to 50% higher concentrations of the psychoactive ingredients psilocybin and psilocin. However, the lack of accessible test results differentiating between strains and their effects makes this hard to confirm.
Based on anecdotal reports, users’ experiences under penis envy cubensis can be comparable to those occasioned by more potent psychedelic substances such as DMT or LSD. Experiences tend to last between four to five hours, with typical effects including euphoria, synesthesia, temporal distortion, changes in visual perception, and profound spiritual introspection. We recommend starting with a 1 – 2 gram dose and waiting 40-60 minutes. If you feel comfortable you can slowly increase the dosage to your desired amount.
What are Magic Mushrooms?
First, there are two types of mushrooms called shrooms. The kinds you cook with are usually cubed and fried in onions, garlic, olive oil, or coconut oil for cooking dishes like spaghetti sauce. The other type is hallucinogenic mushrooms–having psilocybin or active compounds of psilocybin that have long-term effects on behavior.
Hallucinogenic mushrooms have psychoactive properties. These psychoactive properties can induce feelings of euphoria, relaxed body, heavy limbs, increased appetite, visual alterations consisting of lights and shapes about which one has interaction.
The main effects of magic mushrooms are hallucinations and altered perception, but other effects may include increased heart rate, nausea, vomiting, relaxation, or feelings of great euphoria.
Pronounced psychogenic effects can manifest in many different forms, including perceptual distortion (e.g., objects appearing alive or moving), synesthesia (“hearing” colors or “seeing” sounds), disembodiment, but to name a few. These are classified into two broad categories- entoptic sensations, which reflect the architecture of one’s mind, and dystopian sensations, which result from interaction with the external world. Duration varies depending on the dosage taken; typically 6-8 hours following ingestion for insufflated doses while 10-12 hours for orally ingested doses.
How does Psilocybin aka Magic Mushrooms work?
Depending on the type of mushroom taken, a dose typically lasts around 3 to 8 hours. The effects usually start within 30 minutes and may include one or more of the following changes in mood: a heightened sense of well-being, emotional sensitivity, an altered state of mind. Psychedelic experience typically continues until declining awareness. Hallucinations may occur if a person has closed or covered eyes for a period during an otherwise normal trip. A person’s physical condition plays a role in how they might react to shrooms as some can exhibit adverse reactions such as nausea or panic episodes while others sometimes feel stimulated instead. Experienced users report that once outside influences are eliminated (metaphors), their experiences reveal unmediated insights about themselves.
Magic mushrooms contain psilocybin, an indole alkaloid that produces mood-changing effects. When ingested, it may create experiences of colors seen as brighter than before. Things distorted or twisted shapes into strange resemblances to original images, and sounds heard subside and become more intense.
Other side effects can include nausea, cramping in the abdomen, and perhaps headaches. And hallucinations-seeing kaleidoscopes of geometric patterns on surfaces with striking color contrasts at nightfall typically occur under the influence. It’s not always safe for someone to consume shrooms without somebody sober present who knows what they’re doing, so some considerations must be addressed first.
The chemical compounds in shrooms are thought to stimulate serotonin production in the brain, which is linked with emotional responses like aggression, bipolar disorder, depression, etc. The neurotransmitter functions as the key that fits into particular receptors on cells that allow for mood regulation, calmness, and happiness.
