Penis Envy (PE) magic mushrooms are a very unique and interesting variety of Psilocybe cubensis mushroom, with an equally unique and interesting history. This strain is colloquially known as the most potent Psilocybe cubensis magic mushroom variety. Because they are significantly more potent, and because they are notoriously difficult to cultivate, this variety has become especially rare and desirable. As Psilocybin mushrooms gain popularity, Penis Envy is sure to become known as the preeminent variety to choose if you are looking for an exceptionally euphoric, distinctly visual, and profoundly introspective mushroom experience. Several anecdotal reports have claimed that the experience elicited by consuming Penis Envy mushrooms is much more intense, visual, and euphoric than other magic mushrooms of the Cubensis species, and some have even analogized the experience to that which is elicited by other considerably stronger psychedelics like DMT or LSD. It’s theorized that this stronger effect is due to both a higher concentration of psychotropic alkaloids, and a higher ratio of psilocin/psilocybin. The visual characteristics of this mushroom variety include a large, thick, and exceptionally dense stem that is typically white in color, and an underdeveloped, bulbous cap that is distinctly more concave (rounded) than most other Psilocybe cubensis varieties. This higher psilocin:psilocybin ratio effectively serves to make the onset of effects occur slightly sooner and “heavier” when taking Penis Envy mushrooms, however it does not affect the overall duration of the experience very much. It is also commonly reported that a Penis Envy mushroom experience carries less “body load” and leaves the user feeling light, euphoric, energetic, and unencumbered. To put it succinctly, in a phrase that is possibly a little overused in the psychedelic space, it is a very “clean” mushroom high. The Albino Penis Envy variety has the milky white colouration of the Albino PF variety and its caps are sometimes tinged dark blue. Albino Penis Envy mushrooms are also smaller than Penis Envy mushrooms on average. All in all, Penis Envy magic mushrooms are perhaps the most intriguing variety of Psilocybe cubensis, and human scientific understanding of this strain is actually quite limited. It’s visually distinct, considerably difficult to cultivate, and its potency is unmatched within the cubensis species—which has resulted in these mushrooms being highly sought after, especially by experienced psychonauts. This high demand/low supply dynamic also means that Penis Envy cultures and mushrooms are valued at a higher amount than other magic mushrooms, with some online vendors selling them for more than $12 per gram!
