Mexican Mushroom

The cap is 1/2 inch to 4 inches wide. For the first few hours cone-shaped, quickly becomes convex, then flat and finally edges uplift, forming a bowl-shaped cap in the mature mushroom (age 24-48 hours after the rain).

The bowl-shaped cap will have an umbo or may become a depression. A sticky protective film will be observed over the entire cap in fresh specimens. The color varies widely, from an almost pure white with a gold center-spot to an overall light-brown still retaining the gold center-spot.

This species becomes translucent when it has absorbed excess water. At this time the cap (except for the center spot) will appear a dark-olive which is actually the dark spore color showing through. Both the water-soaked and normal specimens will dry to a yellow-rust color still retaining the orange-to-gold center spot.

The gills are rather closely spaceed and are light-brown in the young stages, becoming a deep purple or black with maturity. In early stages the gills will be connected to the stem but may separate with age. The STEM will be from 1.5 inches to almost 6 inches tall and up to 1/2 inch thick.

The stem base (volva) is many times, although not always, thickened. The stem will be hollow, fibrous and generally white or at least a lighter color than the cap. There will usually be a ring of tissue hanging on the upper portion of the stem (the veil) which usually turns blue with age.

The inside flesh of the broken stem will usually yield the fastest bluing- reaction. The flesh of this species is white, has little odor and tastes like fresh grain. It is usually located on cow-manure (although it is located on the manure of other grain-fed animals as well) or on soil that has been enriched with such manure.

The magic mushroom (Psilocybe Cubensis) brings you a visionary state of consciousness.
The maxican gives you a relaxed, very visual and colorful effect.

You can eat the mushroom so that the active substance will be absorbed in your body through your mouth. Chewing it well and slowly improves the effect and saves your stomach. You can also make tea from the mushroom. Boil some water, keep the fire low and leave the mushrooms in for about 20 minutes. Pour the water off and mix with a caffeine-free tea. Dont sweeten the tea!!! If you like you can eat the residue. Take mushrooms on a emty stomach in a quiet natural environment or at home.

Elephantos' mushrooms are exellent products and have been grown with great care and attention.
Because we sent our fresh mushrooms in a special package material, the mushrooms will lost their humidity and will not rotten.
you can keep dried mushrooms up to 6 months.

Fresh: 15 grams (gives a mild trip) to 30 grams (gives an intense trip)
If the mushrooms are dried: 1,5 grams (gives a mild trip) to 3 grams (gives an intense trip)

If this is your first trip, do not exeed half a dose, which is 15 grams fresh and 1,5 grams dried.

After 30 minutes you will noticethe mushrooms will start working. you will get relaxed, giggly, then visualizations will start that last 4-6 hours, depending on the amount you take.

* Drink water. if you feel sick or if you want to neutralize the effect, eat something light, take a high dose of vitamin c (1gr), or drink or eat someting sweet, but no chocolate.

* We do not advise you to smoke a joint before the trip because it diminishes the effect. Smoking afterwards may prolong or enhance the effects.

* Do not use mushrooms more often than once an month. Take time to do something with the insights you have received.
