PSILOCYBE MEXICANA – FLESH OF THE GODS
The Psilocybe mexicana has played an important role. in the (recent) history of psychedelic mushrooms. The indigenous people of South America were familiar for thousands of years. With the operation of psychedelic mushrooms. but this phenomenon has always been unknown to the Western population. Only in 1957, it was Albert Hofmann (discoverer of LSD). Who isolated and identified the substances psilocybin. and psilocin in his laboratory in Switzerland. He did this with this species, the Psilocybe mexicana. The mushrooms of the Psilocybe mexicana had been bred for this purpose.
The Psilocybe mexicana is one of the few psilocybin mushroom species. that also produces magic truffles (sclerotia). Unfortunately, for legal reasons. We can not offer mushrooms of this species. But , it is possible to sell the magic truffles of this species in the Netherlands. Furthermore, there are two varieties of mexicana mushroom. Psilocybe mexicana A and Psilocybe mexicana B . A is the only one of these two, that produces magic truffles. Therefor the magic truffles we sell are of the Psilocybe mexicana A.

Proper Cultivation for Psilocybe Mexicana Mushrooms
Psilocybe mexicana is one of the most well-known psilocybin mushroom strains. that develop sclerotia. These sclerotia are the same as the fruiting body of mushrooms . With their only differences being appearance and location. Sclerotia develop underground instead of above like mushrooms. Sclerotia is the part of Psilocybe mexicana which people refer to as “magic truffles.”
Psilocybe mexicana is a Central American magic mushroom. It’s found throughout the jungle regions of Mexico and Guatemala. where it grows near oak, alder, and plane trees. On rare occasions, it can also grow in the swampy subtropical areas of the United States. particularly in Florida.
It’s identifiable because of its cap measuring between 3 to 5 centimeters . when young, expanding to a flatter convex cap with age. It fruits between June and September, producing sepia to dark brown spores.

GROWING PSILOCYBE MEXICANA”:
Although they have the same effects as magic mushrooms. magic truffles from Psilocybin mexicana have some advantages. In some countries such as the Netherlands. magic mushrooms are illegal while magic truffles are not. This led to the proliferation of magic truffles sold in smart shops.
This guide compiles the steps in growing Psilocybe mexicana. which will develop truffles more known as sclerotia.
Let’s get started!
Preparation of Substrate
When growing magic mushrooms, choosing a substrate is an important decision. A substrate is any substance where mycelium can grow. Many different materials can be considered a substrate – from logs to coffee grounds.
Some of the most common substrates (arranged from the best to least optimal) are:
Rye Grass Seed (RGS)
Wild Bird Seed (WBS)
Brown Rice Flour (BRF)
The following are the steps to prepare substrate from rye berries:
Brew a full pot (2 quarts) of strong coffee
Heat 2-2.5 gallons of water in a separate pot and add the coffee.
Add two teaspoons of gypsum and stir.
Measure your rye while the water and coffee mixture is heating.
You need to use a cup of rye for every quart jar.
Rinse the grains to remove debris and once the water runs clear and the coffee/water mixture is hot. turn off the stove and dump in the grains.
Stir the mixture and cover. Let it sit for 4-24 hours.
Bring it back up to a boil for 10-15 minutes.
Turn off the stove and strain the grains. Make sure the surface of kernels are completely dry.
Once completely dry, store them in jars with synthetic filter disks.
Cover the lids and put a layer of aluminum foil on them.
Pressure cook these jars for 90 minutes then remove.
Once the jars are room temperature, remove the foil.
Now they’re ready to inoculated with mycelium! Inoculation with Psilocybe mexicana
Once you have a spore print or a spore syringe you can inoculate the substrates.
Shake the syringe to dispense the spores .
Put the needle into the jars and push the spore solution into the substrate jars.
If the needle comes in contact with any unsterile material. or surface, you will have to re-sterilize it. Heat the needle using a Bunsen burner until the needle glows red. After that, let the needle cool off for a few seconds before using it.
Once you’ve inoculated the substrate, sit back and watch them grow.
The sclerotia or the truffles will usually. form before the mycelium colonizes the substrate. If you see stones forming a little early, understand that it’s normal.
Also, it’s not necessary to shake the jar at 30% colonization as opposed to what other online resources say.
Harvesting the Truffles After a couple of month, your truffles should be ready to harvest.
Get a spoon and sanitize it with alcohol.
Scrape out the substrate and separate it from the sclerotia.
Clean the truffles with a sterilized brush and store them in fresh paper bags for weeks. or you can dry them to store them for a longer time.
And there you go! You’ll have a stock of magic truffles from Psilocybin mexicana that you can store for future use.

What are Psilocybe mexicana and Psilocybe Cubensis?
The two Mexican species Psilocybe mexicana and P. cubensis (former Stropharia cubensis). Hallucinogenic mushrooms used in religious ceremonies. By the Indians of Mexico were considere sacred. and called “god’s flesh” by the Aztecs.

Is Psilocybe Cubensis poisonous?
baeocystis, and P. cubensis . The toxicity symptoms of psilocybin develop 30 min after ingestion of these mushrooms. reported symptoms of this intoxication include hypertension, tachycardia. visual problems, nausea, anxiety, asthenia, vertigo, mydriasis, motor incoordination, and disorientation
Is Psilocybe mexicana legal?
Psilocybe mexicana is popular in all its forms. some of which are legal depending on local jurisdiction. Along with fruiting bodies (mushrooms), P. mexicana forms sclerotia and psilocybin-containing mycelium.
Can you eat psilocybin mushrooms?
It’s recommended to start with a low dose and work from there. Like most forms of magic mushrooms. Psilocybe mexicana can, dried eaten, or concocted as tea. Although they have the same effects as magic mushrooms. magic truffles from Psilocybin mexicana have some advantages.
What is psilocybin enriched sclerotia?
Psilocybe Galindoi is another one of the rare mexicana mushroom. strains that produce psilocybin enriched sclerotia also referred to as “magic truffles”. or “philosopher stones”. The sclerotia are small nuggets that grow under the soil and is a survival mechanism for the fungi.
What is the difference between psilocybin and mycelium?
Along with fruiting bodies (mushrooms), P. mexicana forms sclerotia and psilocybin-containing mycelium. Both of the latter forms can be found online and for sale in some cities and countries. Both have lower potency per dry weight compared to the mushrooms themselves. with mycelium containing only small amounts of psilocybin.
