Microdoses of this strain can be as powerful as larger doses of a weaker strain, so increase gradually to find what is ideal for you. One gram of this strain can feel like two or three grams of a less potent strain, and as such, the P.E.s (as they are sometimes known) can be a bit overwhelming for first-timers.
Everyone’s physiology and metabolism are different, and 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, and this is especially true with the Penis Envy strain, 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 trip sitter to be your companion for the coming ride.
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 hyper-spatial and mind-altering observational.
Fans of this strain report unlocking ever deeper doors of perception, time distortion, hallucinations both when eyes are closed or open, synesthesia (i.e. “seeing” sounds and “feeling” colours) and in some cases, fractal surfing, living geometry, cosmic entities and even stargates. Remember to stay hydrated, especially if you’re outdoors or doing activities 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.
