Penis Envy Mushrooms
Penis Envy (PE) magic mushrooms are a really distinctive and attention-grabbing number of Psilocybe cubensis mushroom, with an equally distinctive and attention-grabbing historical past. This “pressure” is colloquially often known as essentially the most potent Psilocybe cubensis magic mushroom selection, however sadly as a result of present legality surrounding shrooms, there are not any simply accessible take a look at outcomes to verify precisely how rather more potent this selection is.
A number of anecdotal studies have claimed that the expertise elicited by consuming Penis Envy Mushroom is rather more intense, visible, and euphoric than different magic mushrooms of the Cubensis species, and a few have even analogized the expertise to that which is elicited by different significantly “stronger” psychedelics like DMT or LSD. It’s theorized that this stronger impact is because of each a better focus of psychotropic alkaloids, and a better ratio of psilocin/psilocybin (psilocybin metabolizes into psilocin, as soon as it’s been consumed).
PE mushrooms even have an interesting origin story that has grow to be considerably of a legend within the psychedelic house, involving a number of high-profile names (like Terence McKenna), worldwide smuggling, genetic mutations, prescription drug dealing, theft, and homicide!
As a result of they’re considerably stronger, and since they’re notoriously troublesome to domesticate (as they possess traits which end in mild/ineffective sporulation) this selection has grow to be particularly uncommon and fascinating. As Psilocybin mushrooms acquire reputation, Penis Envy is certain to grow to be often known as the preeminent selection to decide on if you’re in search of an exceptionally euphoric, distinctly visible, and profoundly introspective mushroom expertise.
Penis Envy Mushroom Historical past
Legend has it that Penis Envy originated from an exceptionally massive and wholesome mushroom discovered deep within the Amazon Rainforest, by fabled ethnobotanist, mystic, psychonaut, lecturer, creator, and advocate for the accountable use of naturally occurring psychedelic crops—Terence McKenna.
McKenna, with the assistance of indigenous guides, is claimed to have discovered (and sampled) a “colossal” patch of mushrooms rising deep within the rainforest. On the time (within the early 1970s) magic mushrooms had already been made unlawful in most nations by the 1971 UN Psychotropic Substances Act, however mushroom spores weren’t really prohibited by the Psychotropic Substances Act (as they comprise no psilocybin or psilocin—the lively compounds in magic mushrooms). So McKenna merely took a number of spore prints from this tradition and sandwiched the innocuous purple-black prints between two microscopy slides, labeled the slides with a uncommon agaricus genus title (an additional precaution), and boarded a flight to the USA. Fortunately this smuggling operation went off with out a hitch, and shortly Terence was again in his house state of Colorado.
He quickly started cultivating mushrooms from these prints, utilizing some strategies he had realized within the Amazon, and growing some totally new strategies (which might be featured in his 1976 e-book “Psilocybin: Magic Mushroom Growers Information”). Within the spirit of sharing that’s nonetheless to at the present time prevalent amongst psychedelic fans, McKenna additionally despatched a number of prints from the distinctive Amazonian specimen to lots of his ethno-mycologist colleagues.
One among these colleagues was Steven Pollock, a medical physician who had a ardour for psychedelic shrooms, and was 40 years forward of his time in believing that they had been “the best medication” for the therapy of a number of psychological situations. Pollock was additionally the primary particular person to doc the existence of Psilocybe Tampanensis (together with a number of different species). P. Tampanensis is a truffle-like species, greatest described as midway between mycelium and mushroom, which is exclusive as a result of it comprises considerably increased mycelial psilocybin/psilocin focus (as excessive as zero.6 p.c by dry weight—nearly similar to the zero.eight p.c common for Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms). Though Pollock is sort of unknown, hardly ever credited for the a number of improvements that he contributed to human understanding of Psilocybin mushrooms, and was largely forgotten about after his 1981 homicide, he can relaxation vindicated by the truth that the contributions that he risked his freedom and his life to make weren’t in useless, as each Psilocybe Tampanensis and Penis Envy Cubensis at the moment are cultivated all through the world, and are acknowledged as two of essentially the most fascinating Psilocybe varieties.
