Mexicube Magic Mushrooms
Psilocybe mexicana: Background
Mexicube magic mushrooms (Psilocybe mexicana), also known as Mexican cubensis, are used for their spiritual qualities such as feelings of unity and deep personal insight. Their first known usage was by the natives of North and Central America over 2,000 years ago and was categorized by French botanist Roger Heim.
Dr. Albert Hofmann first isolated and named the active entheogenic compounds psilocybin and psilocin from Psilocybe mexicana in his Sandoz laboratory,
Mexicube colonizes and fruits relatively rapidly, often in dense patches. The colouration of the caps range from light brown to yellowish tan, and can become purple/black due to this strain being a heavy depositor of spores. In comparison to the cap (pileus), the stem (stipe) is thick, and white in colour.
