A bit of history and visual description
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 variate 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. This is what makes the Ecuador magic mushrooms cultivation easier.
You can recognize the Ecuador magic mushroom 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.
They used it 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 the Ecuador mushrooms in ritual ceremonies .

The trip of the Ecuadorian magic mushroom can variate from person to person. Reports suggest that they can induce you into a euphoric state of mind that is dreamy and quite relaxing. There are many reports of visual experiences.
The initial effects of the Ecuadorian Mushrooms 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 seafront harbor.
Psychonauts love the Ecuador cubensis because of the clean, spiritual effects and lack of body high that most other mushroom can give you.
When looking at various sites, notably Erowid, mycotopia 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.

Ecuador magic mushroom 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, at least until you start to feel comfortable with the experience, the idea is to go gradually into higher doses.
