MENU OF PSILOCYBE CUBENSIS
VARIETALS AVAILABLE

We have sourced several varietals of Psilocybe Cubensis to offer. Some simply started as wild varieties that were found in various parts of the world and cultivated, while others have been selectively bred for cosmetic and potency purposes.

What we know about the differences and effects of these varieties is currently based on descriptions and stories passed on by those who use them and grow them. We do not yet have a scientific analysis of the differences, and only limited legal market observations and experiences of the differences.

We cannot guarantee that there IS a difference, as these are all the same species. Personally we believe that the relationship between the mushrooms and the people who use them over hundreds of years, creates an energetic difference, and that the wisdom of ancient peoples/beings can be passed along through the lineage of the mushrooms. Also it is likely that the various varieties will contain different levels of the other compounds that exist in these mushrooms, besides psilocybin and psilocin, and that this can cause different effects.

As new information comes in I will update these descriptions, but currently, this is what I have been able to find out through my research.

A Word on Stems and Caps:

The potency of stems vs caps has been tested at one of our local labs. They found no significant difference. The entire mushroom is equally potent and equally beneficial. That being said, we know that people have preferences, and so we try to make sure there are stems and caps in every package. This can become challenging with small dose packs and large mushrooms. If it is of importance to you, please see below where we describe the individual mushrooms and their cap to stem ratio.

Golden Teacher

This is described as one of the oldest cultivated strains, and is very similar in appearance to wild varieties.

It is named after its iconic gold cap, and for its introspective, philosophical effects. They are said to deliver a psychedelic journey that leaves a profound impact, providing a more guided, educative experience, rather than just a pure “trip” as may be experienced with other varieties.

In our observations here, we have noticed that the mushrooms feel more hefty and solid than other varieties. Also there are occasional weird shapes, or two mushrooms sharing one cap, which is quite interesting. Generally they grow long and slim, with graceful curves and small caps relative to stem size. This means that you may have a lot of stem pieces and a little bit of cap in your dose.

This has been our most productive variety in weight, and it is testing at what we now consider standard potency. Due to this, we have made Golden Teacher our primary variety.

Mazatapec

Sourced from southern Mexico where it has long been used in indigenous ceremonies, this variety is associated with Maria Sabina, a Mazatec sabia or curandera. She was the first contemporary Mazatec shaman to allow westerners to participate in psychedelic mushroom veladas (healing ceremonies), and is credited with introducing western culture to psychedelics. It is an ancient mushroom, with a deep and rich history.

A local expert, who also recommended this variety, describes it as having divine cosmic mother (female) energy, and the possibility of experiencing deep downloads.

These mushrooms are small and numerus. The stalks are simple and straight. You will have a lot of caps in your dose.

This is a special request variety, but it has also produced almost as much as Golden Teacher, and so far is testing on par with our other mushrooms, so we have decided that this will be our second primary variety.

Blue Meanie
AKA Yellow Submarine

Another species of psychedelic mushroom, Panaeolus cyanescens, is often called by the nickname, Blue Meanies. However this is a variety of Psilocybe Cubensis which goes by the same moniker.

Thought to be originally sourced in Australia, and then selectively bred to its current form. It gets its name due to its light colored stem, combined with being prone to blue bruising. It is also obviously named after the character in the animated Beatles movie, The Yellow Submarine, which appears to be inspired by a psychedelic experience. It is generally thought to be one of the more potent varieties, although our tests have shown it to be of standard potency.

We have noticed that it is especially fast growing as mycelium, and that is why it was our first variety available for purchase. The caps have a bit of a white ridge around the edge, and we noticed that the white spots on several of the caps look like eyes. Cute!

They have a moderate stem to cap size and you can expect a cap or two in every dose.

Blue Meanies have been used at some of the first service centers, and have gotten very good reviews. In fact we have been asked to keep them in stock. While they don’t produce as much as Golden Teacher or Mazatapec, they do produce well. We are keeping them on as a secondary variety.

We are also now offering to call them "Yellow Submarine" on the package, as some people have been hesitant to try a mushroom with the name "Meanie."

True Albino Teacher (Special Harvest)

This is an albino variant of Golden Teacher. It is thought to be more potent than the more pigmented source. (And our tests have confirmed this, they are our most potent variety, at around 3 times typical potency!!)

The experience is said to come on faster, and be especially physical. One user describes it as being more like MDMA than psilocybin. This may be due to black market users taking a much higher dose than anticipated.

These are very short and squat, with a wavy cap, and completely white as the name suggests, although some caps turn blue. They look nothing like the Golden Teacher, and in fact look almost like a different species, however we had them tested, and they are still Cubensis!

Due to their very small size, they do not produce much in weight. Due to their high potency, we have decided to keep them as a special premium product.

Since they are so small, you will have several entire mushrooms in your dose.

Some reports have been coming in from service centers that people taking the True Albino Teacher often report meeting or speaking with non-human entities.

Shakti

A new variety that we just got in. This is an albino variant of the Malabar mushroom that originated in Malabar Coast, India. It is said to be especially euphoric, and above average in potency. Our tests are confirming the potency, and reports from service centers are raving about the experience.

They are smallish and grow round bulbous caps that make up most of the mushroom. They look like ping pong balls from above. The caps do not flare much, and as they are so low, they have to be touched to determine if they are ready to harvest. They sometimes have a blue tint.

These are almost all cap and you will usually have slices of mushroom and entire small mushrooms.

They are testing on par with our other high potency mushrooms, like Yeti. They have been wildly popular, and we have adopted them into our standard line up.

Steel Magnolia

Steel Magnolia is a rare and sought after strain. It is a cross of Blue Magnolia and PE. This is a strain that is powerful and attributed to very deep, spiritual and visual experiences. At low doses, it has been reported to cause a euphoric and meditative state. At high doses, it can potentially cause strong visuals, ego death, deep introspection and profound spiritual insights.

This strain grows big stems with small caps, so there will be mostly stem in the packages. But don't let that fool you. Steel Magnolia is a rare strain that is worth experiencing.

They are also showing a dark blue mottling after being picked, which gives the dried mushroom a very interesting look.

Retired and Discontinued Varietals

Retired and Discontinued Varietals

Yeti (Retired)

This is a new variety that we tried, but that wasn't requested and so was retired. It is similar in potency to Hillbilly Pumpkin and Shakti, but the Shakti is so popular that there wasn't room for another similar mushroom.

Pink Buffalo (Retired)

The story goes that mushroom explorer John W. Allen first found this mushroom in the jungles of Thailand, near a pink buffalo (possibly in its dung), and named the variety after the experience.

It is also described as sometimes having a reddish tint to the cap. (Although we did not observe this in our harvests)

The experience is said to be stronger mentally, and less intense physically.

This was the third variety we harvested after Amazon and Blue Meanie. Compared to those, these have a darker cap and more pigment to the stem. They do not bruise as easily as the Blue Meanies do. They have a bit of a knob shaped cap that flares out to a bowl shape at the last moment. The stems are often knurled rather then straight, and the darker pigment on the stem is especially prevalent in the striations, giving the stem an almost wood grain look.

These produce an average amount and typical potency. Since they have not been specially requested, we have retired them in preference to the more productive and requested types.

Amazon (Retired)

This is said to be sourced from the Amazon jungles (not the corporation!) where it has been used for thousands of years by the local indigenous cultures.

It is large, and has a distinctive nipple shape on the fully developed caps, which you can see here in the photo of our first harvest.

It is said to provide strong visuals and mood enhancement. Someone I know who tried a mild dose of this variety, confirmed the mood enhancement effects, and felt very energized. She reported some visual effects even at the low dose.

It is possible that Amazon is a predecessor to the various Penis Envy varieties, after selective breeding.

The first photo is from our first experimental harvest, which was used for testing and was not commercially available. The stem is white while growing, but as soon as it is picked, the whole stem turns blueish green. We suspect that the structure of the inside of the stem allows oxygen to travel up the stem after harvesting, causing some of the psilocybin and psilocin to oxidize, causing the color change. Also, the stems are lighter and hollow.

Generally, we get three flushes from each cultivation of mushrooms. Each successive flush typically has fewer, but larger mushrooms. The third batch of one of our Amazon harvests produced the largest mushrooms we have seen so far. (See photos with business cards for size reference) You can also see in this photo, taken just seconds after harvesting, that the mushrooms are already starting to turn color.

These produce an average amount and typical potency. Since they have not been specially requested, we have retired them in preference to the more productive and requested types.

Hillbilly Pumpkin
(Retired)

This is a more modern variety, said to be sourced in Arkansas in the 1990s. The name comes from its orange hue, pumpkin like wrinkles and it’s source location. Also the mushrooms often grow thick and round in a pumpkin shape.

The effects are described as especially euphoric.

We are noticing thick, sometimes bulbous stems, with small caps. The meat is very dense. Many of the larger ones need to be cut in half or even quartered to dry properly.

Due to their size, your dose will likely contain slices of mushrooms, with a part of a stem and part of a cap.

These mushrooms did very well once we switched to bins, and we grew them for a good while. They were our primary High Potency offering. Both Shakti and Yeti are performing slightly better, and both are more popular, and so we have retired this variety in favor of those.

Some reports have been coming in from service centers that people using Hillbilly Pumpkin are reporting a very physical experience.

Albino South American (Discontinued)

This is an albino variety of a South American sourced mushroom, which has been isolated by a local mycologist in Portland.

We have noticed that these have stems that are even more knurled than the Pink Buffalo, often causing them to grow sideways or upside down. The cap flares out so much that it turns upwards and has a wavy shape. As the name implies, they are completely white.

At first we were very excited with this type, as the first flush was huge, our largest ever (at the time). However we were quickly disappointed, as they were our lowest ever potency at 3mg per gram, and the second and third flushes were very small. They have been discontinued and we see no reason for anyone to request them.

As an update, later testing of different harvests showed a typical potency, however the poor production in second and third flushes mean that we have not changed our mind about these.

Mak G (Discontinued)

This is a somewhat recent experimental variety from local genetic experts.

In our opinion, the experiment was not a success. The mushrooms are very large, but only a very few grow. The potency is just average and we are not getting many second or any third flushes. They have been discontinued and we see no reason for anyone to request them.

Some of our stock has been sold and used, but there was nothing special to report regarding it’s effects.

As an update, some people familiar with Mak G have suggested that we may just have a poor representation of it. Perhaps someday we will source another sample and try again.
