Penis Envy (Psilocybe Cubensis)
What Are Penis Envy Mushrooms?
Penis Envy mushrooms are a species of magic mushrooms that are named after their extraordinary phallic shape. Yes, these mushrooms do, indeed, resemble a penis. This characteristic is said to be caused by a genetic mutation, giving the Penis Envy shrooms a thick, gnarly stem and oval-shaped cap. They are also known as psilocybe cubensis penis envy mushrooms.
Penis Envy shrooms were said to have been developed a few decades ago by Terence McKenna, a famous mycologist, and author. They are considered one of the strongest varieties of magic mushrooms, as their potency is extremely strong and the trip they foster lasts for many, many hours.
Magic Mushroom Family
Penis Envy Mushrooms are a species within the Psilocybe Cubensis family.
Typically, all Psilocybe Cubensis mushrooms are referred to as magic mushrooms because they are the most common and popular family of trippy shrooms. This family of mushrooms is often characterized by their golden caps that can grow to be anywhere from one to three inches in diameter, stems that can grow to be up to six inches tall, and dark purplish-brown spores.
Within the Psilocybe Cubensis family of mushrooms, there are over 180 different species, including the popular Penis Envy mushrooms, Psilocybe Mexicanas, B+ shrooms, Mazatapec Mexicanas, and Golden Teachers. Psilocybe Cubensis mushrooms – also referred to as cubes – get their potency and hallucinogenic effects from the elements, psilocin, and psilocybin.
Most species of magic mushrooms within the Psilocybe Cubensis family grow in Southeast Asia, South and Central America, Australia, and parts of North America. Because most species of cubes are extremely resilient and adaptable, they can also be fairly easily cultivated at home.
Penis Envy Shroom Potency
These mushrooms are especially potent. Although most other species of magic mushrooms within the Psilocybe Cubensis family are only moderately potent, Penis Envy mushrooms are an exception to this. In fact, Penis Envy mushrooms may even be the most potent magic mushroom on the planet.
Ultimately, these mushrooms are more potent because they take a longer time to grow. This longer growth period means more product of the hallucinogenic compound of psilocybin.
Penis Envy Mushroom Strain Effects
As with all magic mushrooms, there are typically four main stages an individual will experience when taking them: ingestion, the onset of the trip, the trip, and the comedown. However, these stages will vary slightly depending on how the shrooms are ingested and how large of a dose you take.
Almost all magic mushrooms have overarching effects on the human body when ingested. Some of these include visual hallucinations, introspection, enhanced creativity and appreciation of art or music, decreased level of stress, a sense of peacefulness and openness, a surge of powerful emotions, overall mood enhancement, a sense of wonder, and more. They will also likely cause physiological effects such as pupil dilation and a change in rate heart and blood pressure.
However, because theses shrooms are such a potent strain of magic mushrooms, the level at which the above effects are experienced is often much stronger. Some have even described the experience of taking Penis Envy mushrooms as life-changing. They often create the feeling that one is at a higher realm of existence and as though they are experiencing sacred communication with the universe.
Some of the neutral effects of taking magic mushrooms are a distortion of time, sensitivity to light, powerful emotions, and more. Finally, there is also a chance that taking Penis Envy mushrooms may cause some negative side effects, including nausea, difficulty completing cognitive tasks, disorientation and confusion, trouble controlling motor functions, dizziness, headache, and more.
Penis Envy Mushroom Benefits
Taking magic mushrooms that contain psilocybin has many potential benefits. They have been reported to help decrease levels of stress, enhance overall mood and more. Although there is not any definitive evidence backing these anecdotal claims, there are several small-scale studies that have been conducted and even more that are continuing to be conducted to determine the potential benefits that magic mushrooms may have on treating symptoms of various medical conditions.
One study conducted in the early 2000s reported that patients who took psilocybin mushrooms and had psychological support experienced reduced symptoms of depression after two weeks.
Similarly, another small study found that a small group of patients suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder who didn’t respond to conventional serotonin reuptake inhibitor drug therapy experienced a reduction in their OCD symptoms when taking psilocybin. Other studies have reported that psilocybin could be potentially beneficial in treating addiction and even cluster headaches.
How to Take Penis Envy Shrooms
Penis Envy mushrooms are most often eaten whole or taken in psilocybin mushroom tea. Regardless, they need to be dried out before eaten or taken in tea. To take PE shrooms in tea, you need to begin by boiling 1.5-2 cups of water. Once the water reaches a boil, add the dried trippy shrooms, reduce the water down to a simmer and allow the mushrooms to steep for 10-15 minutes.
After they finish stepping, strain the water and drink the mushroom tea as-is or add your favorite bag of tea to enhance the flavor.
Penis Envy Dosage
Because Penis Envy mushrooms are much more potent than other strains of magic mushrooms, it’s smart to start with a smaller dose – much smaller than you may think.
If eating the Penis Envy mushrooms whole, around one gram is a good place to start. However, because everyone’s metabolism and physiology are different, how these trippy shrooms will interact with your body may be totally different than how they interact with someone else’s. For that reason, use an online dosage calculator so that you can receive more accurate dosage recommendations based on what type of shroom you have, your body weight, and other physiological factors.
The Penis Envy mushroom strain is an extremely potent hallucinogenic mushroom. For this reason, it doesn’t take much to have an amazing and memorable trip. This is a great shroom for experienced users to try but could be messy for newbies or first-timers, as it is so potent.
Overall, the penis envy is a fantastic mushroom strain that everyone should experience at least once.
