Several reports have suggested that the experience consumed by the Penis Envy strain is much more intense than other strains of the cubensis family. There even have been some experiences in which the the it is comparable or stronger that psychedelics like DMT or LSD. It has been theorized that the strong effect is because of the higher amount of psychotropic alkaloids that it contains, as well as the high amount of psilocin/psilocybin.
The Penis Envy strain has an interesting origin that has become notorious within the psychedelic world. Legend has it that Penis Envy originated from an exceptionally large and healthy mushroom found deep in the Amazon Rainforest, by fabled ethnobotanist, mystic, psychonaut, lecturer, author, and advocate for the responsible use of naturally occurring psychedelic plants—Terence McKenna.
Because they are much more potent that other mushroom strains, and because they are notoriously difficult to cultivate this variety has become especially rare and desirable. As mushrooms have increasingly gained their popularity, the Penis Envy is sure to become known as one of the best choice if you’re looking for an exceptionally euphoric, distinctly visual, and profoundly introspective mushroom experience.
The higher amount of psilocybin serves to make the onset of effects occur sooner and stronger with this strain. This can be felt throughout the entire duration of your experience. It is commonly reported that the Penis Envy mushroom carries a less of a “body high” than other magic mushrooms, allowing users to feel light, euphoric, energetic and free. It is a very “clean” magic mushroom high.
Depending on dosage, your experience level, and the amount of time that has elapsed since your last psychedelic experience, a Penis Envy mushroom trip will last between six and eight hours, which is similar to other Psilocybe cubensis varieties. We recommend starting off with 1-1.5 grams for your first trip.
