One of the earliest known magic mushrooms used for spiritual usage. Mexicana cubensis was used by the Central American’s, in particular, the Axtecs for at least 2000 years. It is native to Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Belize and Costa Rica. The Aztecs consumed them for their entheogenic properties.
Swiss chemist, Albert Hofmann on a trip to Central America learned of this variety, and its rich history and learned to isolate psilocybin and psilocin for the first time. Albert Hofman was also responsible for the isolation as LSD as well, often coining him as the Godfather of modern-day psychedelics.
The cap can vary in size from .5-3 cm with the cap being brownish to deep orange/brown. Once drying, the colour will change to a yellowish tinge.
Gills are a pale gray but can become purplish and blueish with white edges upon spore maturation. But darken substantially when dry.
Stems range from 40 to 125 mm in length, by 1 to 3 mm in thickness. Thin stem thickness is often an identifying factor when looking at the Mexicana cubensis.
Spores are quite dark and purplish normally but can vary to brown and blackish.
Mexicana has a strong, rich, spiritual hit that can take users on a journey. It is known for high levels of psilocybin and baeocystin. Mexicana is known for a shorter, quick trip that peaks heavy in the first hour or two. It tapers off at the end, but still lasts for most people a total of 6-8 hours, although effects diminish quickly towards the duration curve. This differs from many magic mushrooms for sale at Shrooms Direct.
Effects are quite uplifting, cerebral and enlightening – great for a spiritual ride like the Aztecs.
Magic Mushroom Dosage Guide
Everyone’s physiology and metabolism are vastly different. Individual brain chemistry and body size play a significant role in how each individual might respond to psilocybin, as will your surroundings and emotional state, so if it is your first time or you are significantly upping your dosage, select a safe, comfortable, and if possible, familiar place, and consider asking a sober tripsitter to be your companion for the coming ride. Many user’s looking to microdose, might want to opt for gel caps predosed.
Mexican Cubensis effects begin between 10 to 40 minutes after ingestion and can last between 3 and 6 hours, depending on the dose and the individual. Like all tryptamines, psilocybes often cause what has been called “the mushroom yawns” which increase markedly as one begins to peak, however, the feeling in the rest of the body is energetic, not tired. Users can expect a wide variety of possible effects and sensations, from the mystical, euphoric and revelatory to the hyperspatial and mind-alteringly observational. At doses over 2 grams, some users report experiencing warping of the visual field, and Dali-esque melting objects, and other possible effects include time distortion, hallucinations both when eyes are closed or open and synesthesia (i.e. “seeing” sounds and “feeling” colours)Remember to stay hydrated, especially if you’re outdoors or doing activity like dancing, and try sipping some honey ginger tea to counteract any possible nausea during the come-up. Do not use if pregnant and do not mix with other drugs, especially alcohol.
