The Psilocybe cubensis species

Psilocybin

.

The Ecuadorian mushroom  is a psilocybe cubensis, a specie of psychedelic mushroom whose main active elements are psilocybin and psilocin 

The psilocybe cubensis specie is the most well known psilocybin mushroom because they have been widely distributed and they are easy to cultivate.  It is even easier if you decide to fo for a cultivation kit  as all you will need to do is add water and wait for mother nature to take its course. 

A bit of history and visual description

.

Ecuadorian Flag

.

The Ecuadorian Magic Mushroom strain was initially found at 1100+ m of altitude in the Highlands Region of Ecuador.  The Andean region is the most visited region in Ecuador.  It is very variated in terms of natural diversity.  It runs the length of Ecuador and splits the country in two from north to south. 

The Ecuadorian cubensis is as robust as mushrooms come, no surprise there, it comes from a region that is known for being quite rough in terms of its environment and this is what makes its cultivation easier.

You can recognize the Ecuadorian by its very particular characteristics.  It has a long, thick and meaty stalk and large caramel caps 

 

.

Cubensis mushrooms in Ecuador and the whole Andes region have been used by pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures  to induce altered states of consciousness in healing rituals and religious ceremonies.  This is evidenced by the Mushroom stones dating from 3000 BC that have been found in ritual contexts in Mesoamerica.  Today, local shamans and healers still use them in ritual ceremonies .

The Ecuadorian magic mushrooms are tough, just like the habitat they come from. With an average length of 13 cm, it is one of the largest of the cubensis mushrooms.  The may take a bit longer than others to colonize, but they are quite resistant, making it quite popular if you are a newcomer to mycology. 

There are two ways to grow your Ecuadorian magic mushrooms.

Eucuador Magic Mushroom Grow Kit

.

The first way  is the easiest way : with the use of regular  grow kits where all you need to do is add water and wait for the magic to occur.

The process for the regular Ecuadorian  magic mushroom grow kit is as follows:  

  1. Fill the grow box with water until the substrate is submerged and store the kit in the fridge during 12 hours.  
  2. After 12 hours, pour the excess water out of the grow box and place the grow box inside the bag we provide.
  3. Once every other day spray fresh water against the inside of the bag.
  4. Wait until mother nature does its work, usually 12 to 15 days :-)

The kind of high

 

The effects of the ecuadorian magic mushroom can variate from person to person, but reports suggest that they can induce a you into an euphoric state of mind that is dreamy and quite relaxing.  There are also reports of visual experiences. 

The initial effect can be very intense, no wonder the Shamans of the Andean regions favored this strain for their rituals, as you can enter and back out from states like a powerful tide in a sea front harbour. 

Psychonauts love the Ecuador cubensis because of the clean, spiritual effects and lack of body high that most Magic Mushrooms can give you. 

When looking at various sites, notably Erowidmycotopia and Shroomery, you will find that people report strong highs at first, becoming more chill as you enter into the high.  The spiritual aspect of the high comes out the most. 

Keep in mind that the kind of trip will depend on many elements: personality, where you are, whom you are with, what you ate and if you are mixing up with other substances or alcohol (it is best not to do this).  It can be an amazing experience, some say a life-changing experience if you follow basic rules the we outlay further down.

Useful advice before you go on your trip...

.

As usual, the Magic Mushroom Shop would like to remind you that like all medicine the earth has given us it is important to show respect and refrain from abusing the amazing power that this Psilocybe Cubensis possesses. This is why we have created the Responsible Use Section.

In that section you will find that in order to have the best experience, you have to plan ahead, ideally a couple of days before so you can mentally and physically prepare yourself for the mind broadening experience. There are certain precautions that you should take especially when you have never had an experience with the psychedelic mushrooms. 

  • You must be over 18 to try Magic Mushrooms.
  • Enjoy this experience with a friend or Tripsitter who remains sober and who could help you in case of need.
  • Never exceed the recommended dose.
  • Smoking weed or taking other substances when taking magic mushrooms is  not recommended.  It can  be dangerous and make the trip shorter.  Avoid mixing.
  • Drink a lot of water during the trip.
  • If you’re not feeling fine and you want to ' stop'  your trip, take vitamin C or something sweet (an orange juice would be perfect) to lower the effects.
  • When having a bad trip, the best you can do is to try to relax and talk about the experience, changing the setting also can work. 
  • It is not a game: be responsible.
  • Read our responsible use page.

Dosage

.

.

The typical dose for most magic mushrooms, even the Thai Magic Mushroom, is between 1 and 2.5 grams of dried shrooms, you can find the perfect dosage using EROWID's dosage calculator.  There is also the Shroomery dosage calculator which you can check out here

Many advanced users will say these quantities are too small, but they are safer for a beginner.   We believe the best is to remain below 1g if you are getting started.
