Albino Penis Envy Mushrooms: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know

Albino Penis Envy mushrooms are the milky-white child of the famed Penis Envy shrooms.

Legend has it that they’re even more potent than their predecessor. It’s definitely not for everyone!

While most mushrooms either give you strong visuals or take you on a deeply introspective journey, Albino Penis Envy gives you both — such a generous mushroom.

Here, you can learn all the general information about them, including their origin, effects, potency, and how to grow them.

Albino Penis Envy (APE) is one of many variations of the Psilocybe cubensis species — they’re actually a variation of a variation, being the almost-colorless version of the well-known Penis Envy (PE) shrooms.

PE mushrooms were so popular that breeders started creating new sub-varieties and hybrids. APE is a hybrid of two Psilocybe cubensis varieties — Penis Envy and PF Albino.

Their most standout characteristic is the color; they’re milky white with bluish tones. When dried, they turn silver blue.

Albino Penis Envy’s effects are quite strong. They’re said to produce a highly visual trip with euphoria and deep introspective thoughts. Other effects include:

  • Visual, auditory, and other sensory distortions of reality or hallucinations;
  • Temporal distortion;
  • A feeling of connection to their surroundings, people, and animals;
  • Spiritual experiences;
  • Abstract thinking;
  • Synesthesia (hearing colors and seeing sounds, for example);
  • Dilated pupils.

Of course, it depends on the batch and other variables, like the setting, your physiology, and what you ate that day.

The effects take anywhere between 20 minutes and an hour to set in. A “normal” trip should last up to six hours but, again, this depends on many variables.

Some possible undesired side effects include:

  • Anxiety and panic attacks;
  • Paranoia;
  • Drowsiness;
  • Poor coordination;
  • Excessive sweating;
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure;
  • Nausea and vomiting;
  • Headaches;
  • Dehydration.

To increase your chances of having a pleasant experience, you can use a magic mushroom dosage calculator to find out how much you should take.

However, since APE are usually stronger than other strains, you should only have approximately 70% of the weight of shrooms the calculator advises you to.

You can take more if you feel like it wasn’t enough — what you can’t do is take back what you already consumed! Better safe than sorry.

Albino Penis Envy Mushrooms — How To Grow Them

Albino Penis Envy mushrooms aren’t the easiest to grow. First of all, they release few fertile spores, so, you’ll need other methods of colonization after your first round. They’re also not the biggest fans of some popular substrates that other mushrooms thrive on.

Moreover, they’re known for taking a long time to grow, being inconsistent between batches, and, usually, having low to medium yields. They’re normally smaller than PE mushrooms.

On the plus side, they do tolerate some poor conditions that other shrooms don’t; including excessive heat and some chemical residues. It’ll lead to malformed or smaller bodies but they’ll still grow.

All in all, this is a better strain for experienced growers who want a challenge and something new than for beginners.

Still, here are a few different ways you can grow Albino Penis Envy mushrooms:

Albino Penis Envy Mushrooms — Key Takeaways

So, there you have it: besides their gorgeous appearance — both while fresh and dried — Albino Penis Envy mushrooms will take you on the trip of your life with intense visuals and introspection alike.

We owe a heartfelt thank you to whoever decided to cross Penis Envy with PF Albino shrooms to create one of the most iconic Psilocybe cubensis varieties.

Growing them isn’t as easy as growing most psilocybin mushrooms but the difficulty is totally worth it when the outcome is APE mushrooms. Go and give it a try.
