Overview of Amazonian Mushrooms
Amazonian Mushroom (Psilocybe Cubensis Amazonian) is an ancient strain that traces back to the Amazon forest. It is unknown which mycologist originally collected this strain but this popular strain has been domesticated for over 50 years. The Amazonian shrooms are known to be thick and fleshy. It is not the easiest strain to grow commercially because of its slow fruiting.
Amazonian Magic Mushrooms are a type of mushroom that produces hallucinogenic and psychedelic visuals. Originally found in the Amazon, the Amazonia Magic Mushroom is traditionally found in horse dung and rich soils under dense forest canopies.
Due to the humidity that’s found in the Amazon, this species requires an incredibly high level of humidity to mimic its original environment to begin growing.
The Amazonian Magic Mushroom is notable because it’s a prolific producer that pumps out massive yields. The reason behind this is due to its robust mycelium layer that quickly spreads within the soil.
The result is a very fast production time that surprises most mushroom cultivators. As the mushrooms grow, the fleshy white stems produce a brownish cap at the apex. Soon, the brownish top resembles a nipple-like structure.
It’s during this point that the mushrooms are nearing their most ripe point. As the mushrooms caps begin to open, the harvest begins. It’s at this point that the mushrooms are at their most potent stage.
Visual Characteristics of the Amazonian Magic Mushroom
Once the Amazonian Magic Mushroom is harvested, cultivators are struck by the sheer beauty of each mushroom. Large and dense white stems that may turn blue when gently pressed. The large golden-brown caps that resemble domes from Russia’s St. Basil’s Cathedral are another interesting characteristic.
However, once these mushrooms are dried, they are reduced in size significantly. This is because wet mushrooms are composed of 90% water. Although you can consume wet Amazonian Magic Mushrooms – it’s more common to find them when dry due to transportation.
Effects of amazonian mushroom strain
Generally speaking, psilocybin causes euphoria or other changes in mood, changes in thought-pattern often including spiritual or personal insight, and, at higher doses, hallucinations. Less-enjoyable effects commonly include excessive yawning, nausea, and sometimes vomiting. Severe reactions, such as convulsions, are very rare but can occur. Psilocybin is relatively safe, but it is not risk-free.
Among the most common negative effects is anxiety, which can become extreme—despite the fact that psilocybin has also been advocated as a treatment for anxiety and depression. Some people say that psilocybin is an enhancer, exaggerating whatever mindset the user is already in.
PES Amazonian specifically is said to be less visual and more mental or spiritual than many of the other strains. The high can lasts up to eight hours.
