History of Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms
Penis Envy is a bonafide classic with an exciting history. The story goes that Penis Envy magic mushrooms were first discovered by famous psychonaut Terrence McKenna.
Terrence McKenna has a place in magic mushroom history for bringing easy magic mushroom cultivation to the masses. Terrence and his brother wrote Psilocybin: Magic Mushroom Grower’s Guide, which revolutionized growing shrooms at home.
Anyway, while Terrence was out in the Amazon rainforest, he discovered a gigantic magic mushroom. McKenna took spore prints of this incredible magic mushroom and sent them to a friend named Steven Pollock.
Steven Pollock was a doctor who was incredibly interested in the healing properties of magic mushrooms. Pollock received the spores McKenna sent him and began culturing the strain.
Over the years, he made the strain better and better by isolating only the most enormous mushrooms. One day, he noticed a massively mutated mushroom and then took a culture of it.
After culturing the mutation, he knew he was on to something amazing because it turned out to be much stronger than any other magic mushroom he tried.
He dubbed this mutation Penis Envy—and the rest is history.
The Appearance of Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms
Penis Envy magic mushrooms have their namesake because they look like, well, a penis. The envy part of the name comes from the fact that they’re incredibly large.
When fresh, the stem of the magic mushroom is wide, and the cap is small. When Penis Envy magic mushrooms are dried, they take on a slightly smaller appearance.
One thing that you may notice on your dried Penis Envy magic mushrooms is bluish spots. These spots are called bruises, and they happen after harvest, during transportation, or when stored.
These blue spots are totally normal and happen to all Psilocybe cubensis strains. If you see blue spots on any of your magic mushrooms, then no worries, bruising doesn’t affect potency or safety.
Penis Envy Effects
Penis Envy has become one of the most well-known magic mushroom strains because of its incredible effects. For starters, Penis Envy magic mushrooms have strong visuals.
The visuals that this strain produces also have a distinct wavy characteristic. On top of that, Penis Envy provides boundless euphoria and introspection.
Taking Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms Recreationally
If you’re going to take Penis Envy magic mushrooms recreationally, then you’ll need to do so carefully. As long as you take a smaller dose, then you’re sure to have a wonderful time.
Spending an evening out in nature with friends is one of the best ways to use Penis Envy recreationally. You’ll be in absolute awe at the incredible visual stimulation and nature surrounding you.
On top of that, you’ll feel a deep interconnectedness among the people and environment surrounding you. After a little while, you’ll likely fall into deep introspection as you reflect on yourself and the world.
Since Penis Envy magic mushrooms are so strong, they also tend to last longer than other strains. That’s why you’ll want to make sure you have enough supplies to last your entire psychedelic trip.
You’ll also want to make sure never to drive or do anything even slightly dangerous after taking magic mushrooms. So long as you stay prepared and safe, you’re sure to have an incredible time.
Taking Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms Spiritually
Penis Envy is an incredibly spiritual strain. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that they’re from deep within the Amazon rainforest.
Whatever the reason, Penis Envy magic mushrooms will take you deep into your consciousness and back again. However, to have magic mushrooms reveal to you something extraordinary, then you’ll need to be as receptive as possible.
That means that you need to make specific preparations. These preparations boil down to a concept known as set and setting.
The set is your mindset, and the setting is your physical environment during a spiritual magic mushroom experience. Both the set and the setting need to be just right.
For the setting, you’ll want to be in a place that’s comfortable, familiar, safe, and inviting. People are also part of the setting, and you’ll want to have the least amount of people around as possible.
For the set, you’ll need to have your mind as clear as possible. Of course, that’s easier said than done, but it’s best if you take a few days off from work and clear all your responsibilities so you have nothing to worry about.
Dosing Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms
Remember, Penis Envy magic mushrooms are incredibly potent, and dosing them should be done so with caution. If you’re an experienced psychonaut, then you should cut your usual dose down by half to be on the safe side.
If you’ve never dosed before, then here’s a general guide:
.25 grams (g) for a threshold dose
.25-1g for a light dose (recreational dose)
.5-1g for a medium dose (recreational dose)
5-5g for a strong dose (spiritual dose)
5 or more grams for a heroic dose (spiritual dose)
However, beginners should start at one gram or less. Remember, it’s best to start low and go slow rather than end up in a trip that’s way stronger than you intended.
