The Psilocybe cubensis species

The PES Amazonian is also known as Amazon or PESA.  This magic mushroom is a psilocybe cubensis, a species of psychedelic mushroom whose main active elements are psilocybin and psilocin.  

The Psilocybe cubensis species is the most well-known psilocybin mushroom because they have been widely distributed and they are easy to cultivate, even easier if you get one of our cultivation kits where all you need to do is add water. 

A bit of history and visual description

The story behind the PES Amazonian strain is, as is the case for most cubensis strains, a bit foggy, it may or not be true...  The name came from Pacifica Spora a company that was the first to sell this strain that was probably found in the Amazonian jungle. 

It's a big and fleshy magic mushroom.  The average height can go over six inches, some hitting 12 inches have been reported!  The caps often have a pronounced nipple in the center and diameter can go from one to two inches with convex to plane surfaces when it matures.

When they start to form, the cap color is dark red, as it matures, the dark red will only remain in the middle of the cap

They are known to form very interesting exotic shapes, truly living up to its strain name: Pacific Exotica Spora Amazonia.  



Cultivation info

As with any Cubensis, sterility is the name of the game, and a PES Amazonian will go a long way in ensuring that contamination problems are minimized.  For regular grow kits, this is a resume of the steps to grow your first flush: 

  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 :-)

The PES Amazonian magic mushroom is the perfect strain for beginner mycologist because the fruiting process is simply incredibly fast and large.  Colonization speed is a bit faster than the average cubensis.

The first two flushes can give less quantity in terms of the number of mushrooms, but on the other hand, they will be very large. 




The kind of high

The PES Amazonian can give you strong visual effects and they are almost sure to elevate you to ecstasy.

When looking at various sites, notably Erowid, mycotopia and Shroomery, you will find that experiences all mention music.  This cubensis seems to bring lots of joy to those who prepare a good music list beforehand. 

Intense body buzz is reported with geometrical patterns in the darkness, patterns that seemed to go well with the music.  many report the urge to move hands and arms, to dance

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.

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.




The typical dose for most magic mushrooms, even the PES Amazonian, 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. 

Reddit also has an interesting thread about dosage for the B+.  3.5g is underlined as the standard for intense tripping.  In any case, it is best to start slowly and increase as you experience with the substance.
