Psilocybe mexicana has played an important role in the (recent) history of psychedelic mushrooms. The indigenous populations of South America have known for thousands of years how hallucinogenic mushrooms work, but this phenomenon has always been completely unknown to the Western population. It was not until 1957 that Albert Hofmann (discoverer of LSD), isolated and identified the substances psilocybin and psilocin in his laboratory in Switzerland. He did it with this species, Psilocybe mexicana. Psilocybe mexicana mushrooms had been artificially bred for this very purpose.
Psilocybe mexicana is one of the few species of psilocybin mushrooms that also produces magic mushrooms (sclerotia). There are two varieties of Psilocybe mexicana: Psilocybe mexicana A and Psilocybe mexicana B. Variety A is the only one that produces magic mushrooms.
Effects Of Mexican Magic Mushrooms :
The effects of Psilocybe Mexicana are rather mild, but should not be underestimated at all. Most users perceive reality quite differently after just 5 grams of these mushrooms. Slight visual effects, slightly heightened senses, and a social notion will make you feel good, funny, confused, sometimes weird. All this is accompanied by a feeling of euphoria.
Strength, Dosage And Use :
Psilocybe mexicana mushrooms are quite mild. The effects of the fresh magic truffle are already present at a dose of 5 grams, but not very strong. 10 grams is considered a medium trip and a full pack of 15 grams results in a strong trip for most people. These amounts are averages and, as there are a number of variables present, such as psilocybin sensitivity, body weight, full/empty stomach and so on, may be different for each person. Always start with a low dose. Magic mushrooms can be eaten or used as tea (simmer for 20 minutes, don’t let the water boil). The first effects are already felt after 15-30 minutes.
The consumption of hallucinogenic mushrooms such as Psilocybe Mexicana is strictly prohibited in France. The purpose of this article is simply to inform Internet users about the existence of Mexican mushrooms.
