This strain is the “OG” of psilocybe cubensis and has a sacred history.
The Mazatec are indigenous people from Oaxaca Mexico and feature a long and sacred history with this mushroom. For generations, it was used as a sacrament in ceremonial rituals to connect with nature and help bridge the gap between the spirit and ourselves as a means of facilitating healing.
These mushrooms are from Mexico and are deemed suitable for the average user due to their visual and brain effects. Growing this strain would only be recommended once some experience has been gained growing and tripping.
They form a good step between milder mushrooms like the Thai, Mexican or Cambodian mushrooms and the heavier strains such as Mckennaii and Ecuadorian. It is a good choice to use to shift from less potent mushrooms as you explore more potent ones. Many find them to be a good bridge to use in moving towards deeper experiences.
The shroom typically features dark brown caramel caps with medium stems.
Effects associated with this strain can be one of a more profound and spiritual journey, as one delves into spaces with deep insights into yourself and the universe. Many reports have come back with experiences of intense joy, and euphoria, powerful visual effects, and a heightened sense of colour. Looking for a spiritual reconnection? Look no further.
This strain tends to be easier than not to grow with average-sized fruits. Simply ensure the optimal fruiting temperatures of 22-25°C, steady - if the temperature is lower the mushrooms will still grow, but at a slower rate)
