Alacabenzi cubensis

Alacabenzi strain, also known as Alcabenzi, or Alacabenzi Psilocybe cubensis is said to have appeared in 2001 as the result from a genetic union between Psilocybe Mexicana and a Psilocybe cubensis from Alabama.

As it often with hybrid magic mushrooms, the resulting strain inherits traits from both its parents. We like to say that the unique Alacabenzi origin make it the special magic mushroom that it is.

Users say the Alacabenzi mushroom effects foster a warm feeling, similar to Psilocybe Mexicana. The latter was consumed in traditional ceremonies and known to help relieve physical ailments such as rheumatism, menstrual cramps, and insomnia. The Aztec called P. Mexicana “Dormilon”, meaning “sleepy head”.

That is probably why at low dose, the Alacabenzi mushrooms effects are relaxing and soothing.

From its second parent, the Psilocybe cubensis from Alabama, the Alacabenzi strain inherited its extraordinary stature and the impeccable resistant nature known to most Psilocybe cubensis.

Meaty, sturdy, with symmetric shaped caps, the Alacabenzi magic mushroom is a beautiful magic mushroom that can grow to impressive sizes.

The Alacabenzi mushroom strength is not only measured in relation to potency but also with its performant genetics.  After all, with parents such as his, it is evident it has a great fungal fitness.

In the magic mushroom community, the Alcabenzi strain is a seducing one to both growers and consumers alike. The Alacabenzi effects being a balance of relaxation and dynamism, it is one enjoyed by many.

Known to be an easy one to grow, Alcabenzi are very forgiving for beginner growers. Generous fruiters, they ensure a productive and rewarding harvest.

As they enjoy the same habitat as most Psilocybe cubensis species, they will grow naturally in tropical to sub-tropical conditions, and in the wild, with the right substrate, the Alacabenzi cubensis can thrive to impressive sizes.

For all these reasons, today, the Alcabenzi strain is a widely cultivated magic mushroom appreciated for its relatively easy growth, generous fruiting and unique Alacabenzi effects.

Described to be of a “manageable” potency, the Alacabenzi mushroom effects can also surprise you around the corner, with a twist of explosive trippiness.
For these reasons, it seems to be a popular choice to satisfy both beginner and experienced psylonauts (psilocybin consumers).

So, if you are looking to either relax your body, dance with intensity, or dive into a full-form psychedelic voyage, the Alacabenzi mushrooms can be your choice. We call this a versatile strain.

This versatily makes Alacabenzi magic mushrooms great candidates for effective microdosing.

Indeed, many users report that the Alcabenzi strain can help enhance your work performance or uplift your mood.

Lovely to watch grow in the solid Alacabenzi cubensis, like the saying “abra- cadabra” meaning “I imagine thus I create”, the Alacabenzi mushroom strain is that good-looking, fun-tripping companion.

If you want to imagine thus create, think of those “abracadabrant” mushrooms that symbolize when the spiritual quality of a Mexican Psilocybe meets the performing resistance of an Alabama cubensis; remember the one and only Alacabenzi mushrooms, aka the Alacabenzi cubensis.
