AV, Avery Albino cubensis

The Avery Albino is a highly potent cubensis hybrid famous for its long-lasting body high and ghostly white coloration. This “very intense but soothing” strain remains a bit of a mystery. It isn’t clear who is responsible for the creation of Avery Albino nor from which strain it descends from; while some say it is a mutation of the famous hybrid A+ cubensis, others link it to the Cambodian strain. Either way, this exotic hybrid Psilocybe is a tough one to cultivate and therefore is considered a rare and refined “fungal meat”.

Unlike the Albino A+ strain which is leucistic (partial loss of coloration), Avery Albino is a true albino; and being a “true albino” comes with “true albino” issues. Therefore, just like the Albino PE, Avery Albino produces transparent spores that are difficult to visually harvest. Nonetheless, its slow and difficult growth have not restrained its popularity and today, Avery Albino is amongst some of the favourite albino magic mushrooms out there.

This sturdy and meaty psilocybin-packed magic mushroom is generally not tall but considered a very strongly active candidate with a quick and powerful come-up (rising of psychedelic effects). While consumers all seem to agree on its buzzing, relaxing physical high, others describe a variety of effects such as “overwhelming calmness”, intense open-and-closed-eyes visuals, sudden waves of energy, electrified skin, and long-lasting effects.
For all these reasons, we recommend Avery Albino be consumed by experienced psilonauts (psilocybin consumers) or for the practice of microdosing (to relieve with stress, and help with focus). Even if Avery Albino is very potent, it is said to be more mellow than other very extremely high hybrids such as the entire Penis Envy family; to a point where many even recommend it for improving sleep, helping relieve menstrual cramps and cluster headaches.

As the mystery on its origins remains, we attempted to unravel the aura of this exceptional “very intense but soothing” strain.  We learned that the name “Avery” is derived from the Anglo-Saxon name Alfred and the ancient Germanic name Alberich, both meaning “ruler of elves”… Well, as you can imagine, we were ecstatic and thought it made a lot of sense.
So to “Albert the albino ruler of elves”, may your pixies massage our bodies and help guide our souls to blissful states of consciousness.
