BIG WHITE MONSTER CUBENSIS
The Big White Monster, also known as the White Wizard or the Great White Shark, is a leucistic Psilocybe cubensis mutant strain resulting from the breeding of the renown A+ strain to the very prolific fruiter Puerto Rican cubensis.
While the A+ is ironically best known for its popular albino descendant AA+, the Puerto Rican cubensis is appreciated for its extreme potency, aggressive colonizing, and rhizomorphic mycelium.
So why is BWM considered an “albino” specie if neither of its parents are? It is said that its milky white pigmentation came from an accidental exposure to quaternary reactive ammonium siloxane during the breeding process.
Reported to have rusty white leucitic spores, any mushroom that will grow from those spores will likely be lacking in pigment like an albino though most probably won’t be pure albinos.
With both parents being prolific fruiters, the Big White Monster is able to correct the usual albino spore default. This leucistic mutant, compared to its albino relatives such as APE or AA+, doesn’t have problems opening its caps and will drop spores abundantly, resulting in a fruitful harvest. Albino Penis Envy Revert was actually a strain developed to correct that issue.
BWM has both the ash-grey and the golden hue of its parents. The caps are usually a silver/white/straw with whitish stems, and the flesh bruises readily blue.
BWM is a psilocybin-packed specie thus an extremely potent cubensis. For that reason, it is a good candidate for effective micro-dosing. The Big White Monster is said to be a great companion when it comes to wellness and performance: to enhance mood, energy levels, or focus. At higher doses, expect an intense visual journey said to be best handled in nature.
Though BWM fruits prolifically and can produce monster sized mushrooms (hence the name), it can also be slow to grow and therefore, best for patient growers.
Since McKenna and Pollock’s original isolations that led to the creation of the one and only Penis Envy, many sub-strains have seen the light of day. It is undeniable that the ongoing manipulations of agile mycologist-engineers, the world of mushrooms is giving way to a new generation of odd-looking sub-strain hybrids; BWM is just another seed in the ocean of possibilities.
