Ecuador Magic Mushroom Overview
The various Psilocybe mushrooms can be quite difficult to tell apart from each other as well as from other similar genera such as Galerina, Hypholoma, and Stropharia. This misidentification and confusion of this species with closely resembling toxic species is the main danger. Therefore, being familiar with the macroscopic and microscopic morphologic features of the Ecuador Magic Mushroom is very important for safety. I
Cap: The cap of Ecuador Magic Mushroom is 2 to 8cm across in diameter. It is conical to bell-shaped with a central knob, or umbo, at first. However, with age, the cap expands becoming convex to broadly convex and eventually flat-topped with or without the umbo. The color of the cap in young mushrooms is chestnut or cinnamon-brown, becoming light or golden brown at maturity. The surface of the cap is viscid to smooth when moist but dries rapidly. The veil often leaves behind spotted remnants on the cap, which tend to disappear with time, leaving behind an overall smooth surface.
Flesh: Similarly to other psilocybes, the flesh of this species demonstrates a bluing reaction when damaged or bruised.
Gills: The gills are narrow, close, and attached to the stem with a notch at the point of attachment. In your fruiting bodies, the gills are grey, but they become purplish-grey to almost black with distinct white edges with age.
Stem: The stem is 5 to 15cm tall and 5 to 15mm thick, with a widening towards the base in most specimens. The stem is smooth and mostly white but may take on a yellow discoloration. The stem also demonstrates a bluing reaction when damaged or bruised.
Ring: The Ecuadorian cubensis is characterized by a partial veil that leaves behind a persistent membranous ring on the upper portion of the stem. The ring is white, but bruises blue similar to the cap and stem.
Spores: The spores of this species are subellipsoid, and 11.5-17µm by 8-11µm in dimension.
Spore Print: The spore print of the Ecuadorian cubensis is purplish brown
Edibility: Although this mushroom is edible, it is moderately hallucinogenic causing confusion, delirium, ad visual disturbances.
Habitat: This species is known to be coprophilic meaning that it loves manure. Therefore it can most commonly be found growing scattered or gregarious on grassy meadows, mostly on cattle, horse, or other animal dung, or on well-manured fields during spring, summer, and fall. Most growth however occurs in the two months before the hottest time of the year.
Range: The Ecuadorian cubensis is known to grow in the high-altitude regions (over 1000 meters) of the Andes mountains.
The Ecuador Magic Mushroom is of moderate to strong comparative potency on the psylometric scale. However, it should be emphasized that the potency of any given mushroom is dependent on the state of the mushroom(raw vs dried), mode of consumption, individual physiologic sensitivity as well as on the methods, and the environment of growth.
The exact psilocin and psilocybin content of Ecuador cubensis are unavailable. However, we know that is thought to be of comparatively equal or slightly stronger potency than Psilocybe cubensis. Therefore, it can be assumed that the contents of psilocin and psilocybin in the Ecuadorian strain can be somewhere in the range or slightly higher than 0.15-0.63% and 0.11-0.50% respectively, as these were determined to be the psilocybin and psilocin contents of P. cubensis by various mycologists in studies conducted during the 1990s. Furthermore, it appears that artificially cultivated mushrooms seem to be more potent when compared to mushrooms collected in the wild
Ecuador Magic Mushroom Dosage
The dosage of psilocybin-containing mushrooms is very difficult to calculate as a great degree of variability exists in the psilocybin content of individual samples. Furthermore, great variability exists in response to psilocybin dosages across individuals. This variability is dependent not only on physiologic factors of absorption and metabolism but also on extra-pharmacological factors such as mental state and environment, which are often referred to as “set and setting”.
One recent study from the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine seems to suggest that fixed doses ranging from 23-27mg or weight-adjusted doses ranging from 20-30mg per 70kg are appropriate for pharmacotherapeutic use.While on the other hand, other researchers have used very low doses of psilocybin at 1-3 mg per 70 kg. Whether these macro- or micro– dosages will be appropriate for recreational use is unknown, but they can certainly be used as a starting point from which adjustments can be made to achieve the desired effect. As a general rule starting with 1-3 mg per 70 kg is advisable.
The trip effects of Ecuador Magic Mushroom include both subjective mental and objective physical symptoms and signs. These effects are mediated by the compounds psilocybin and psilocin, which act through as yet not well-known mechanisms that maybe involve serotonergic and sympathetic systems. These effects usually appear within 20-30 minutes of ingestion and last roughly 6 to 8 hours, but they may persist for up to 12 to 24 hours.
The major effects involve the central nervous system (CNS) and are described as pleasurable by most users. Frequently reported CNS symptoms include auditory, visual, tactile, gustatory, and olfactory hallucinations with vivid colors, kaleidoscopic phenomena, flashes of light, synesthesia (“seeing sounds” and “hearing colors”), anxiety, confusion, disorientation, inappropriate behavior, unmotivated laughter, and emotional lability. Unfortunately, some users may experience frightening dysphoric reactions or “Bad trips” that may result in severe panic, psychosis, or depression.
Objective physical signs of psilocybin ingestion can include increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, dry mouth, pupillary dilation, facial flushing, headache, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, sweating, high body temperature, incoherent or inappropriate speech, and drowsiness along with facial paresthesias such as numbness.
