The first thing you need to know is that there are two main types of Mexican Magic Mushrooms: the Mazatapec strain and the Mexican strain. Both are very appreciated by first-time psychonauts because they are great for a first experience to ‘enter in contact’ with the magic mushrooms world, especially if you are into spiritual experiences. Moreover, they have been used by Mexican Indians for generations. Let’s take a closer look.
The exotic Mazatapec strain is a psilocybe cubensis, a species of psychedelic mushroom whose main active elements are psilocybin and psilocin.
The main similarity is of course that they both come from Mexico and that they are both used by the Mazatec indigenous people, a tribe that comes from the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, the region that introduced magic mushrooms to the world.
Everything changed for the western world when in the 1950’s two Americans were allowed to participate in the Mazatec rituals, it effectively introduced psilocybin and salvia to the rest of the world. This influenced many important players in the psychedelic revolution and changed modern man’s relationship to psychedelics forever.
The Mazatapec magic mushrooms still have the wild life of middle America in their genes, so you can expect large flushes with brown caps.
With the Mazatapec it’s important to be patient. It has an old soul, which takes a little more time than other strains to grow. So don’t worry if your Mazatapec grow kit is a bit slower. Once it arrives will share all it’s wisdom with you!
The Mazatec have a long tradition of using magic mushrooms for spiritual and ritualistic use. They eat the magic mushrooms only at night because they believe that if they eat them in daylight they will go mad.
