The Psilocybe Mexicana originally comes from guess where? Mexico! Arrrrrriba.
Psilocybe mexicana potency is middle of the pack. Making it a very versatile and popular magic mushroom. It’s not too weak and it’s not too strong. It also has some crazy amazing history.
Did you know that these are also known as the famous “Mazatapec Mushrooms” and thanks to Mexico, magic mushroom usage in North America proliferated. So we should honestly say thank you to the Latin American indigenous for introducing us to such wonderful and potent medicine.
The Psilocybe Mexicana magic mushrooms still have the wild life of middle America in their genes, so you can expect large flushes with brown caps. With the Psilocybe Mexicana 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!

Mexicana Effect #1: Artistic, Scientific, and Philosophical Creation
Artists and other creative individuals have often reported using psychedelic substances in an e ort to enhance creative output or novelty.
Plato’s theory of creative inspiration directly credited the possession of the artist by the Muse or other gods; the artist lost their own mind or self and entered a poetic “fury” or “frenzy” during which a higher force created through them (McMahon, 2013; Murray, 1996; Pieper, 1964). Plato even went so far as to directly compare the frenzy of artistic creation with the cultic rites of Dionysus, where participants were similarly filled with (prob- ably substance-induced) ecstasy and enthusiasm.
William Blake provides an excellent (if more modern) example: Blake’s poetry and painting are all but unimaginable absent the visionary altered states that inspired them (Bloom, 1963). The loss of the sense of self in visionary states is in many ways reminiscent of core and peak psychedelic experiences, dis- cussed in more detail below.
Psilocybe Mexicana Effect #2: Daydreaming and Dreaming
Dreaming is a more familiar example of a bizarre visionary experience that each of us participates in every night and thus is easier to relate to when speaking about psychedelic experiences. There are many parallels between dreaming and daydreaming with psychedelic experience. Including immersive visual imagery, highly novel and unusual patterns of thinking, intense emotional experience, and a disrupted sense of self/ridding of the Ego.
