ECUADOR STRAIN

"Ecuador Psilocybe cubensis", "Ecuadorian cubensis"

The Ecuador Strain also known as Ecuador Psilocybe cubensis or Ecuadorian cubensis is a magic mushroom strain found growing naturally in the mountainous Highlands of Ecuador.

This Andean Psilocybe Cubensis has the typical robust morphology that is perfect for composing with rough climates. With a long, thick, meaty stem, and large golden caps, the sturdy Ecuador Strain magic mushroo is as resistant as it can get. This sought-after unyielding strength is also found in its descendant, the Tricolor Ecuadorian cubensis, a rare, isolated variant that offers a much stronger trip.
Growing easily indoor in dense patches with sizeable fruiting bodies, the Ecuador Strain is a reliable species that has the impeccable reputation of being a generous psilocybin producer: always abundantly flushing and optimizing for the pleasures of a bounteous harvest.

Blending lush tropical rainforests and snow-capped mountains, Ecuador is a fantastically diverse and vibrant country. Located along the Equator, from which it inherits its name, it is home to 1,289 named mountains, and a handful of uncontacted tribes still living in the Ecuadorian Amazon Basin. Ritual entheogenic use of Psilocybes in Mesoamerica goes back thousands of years. While in Mexico, P. aztecorum, P. Mexicana, or P. caerulescens are the strains that left traces linked to these sacred traditional ceremonies, in the depth of the Amazon, comes in line some slightly stronger cubensis strains such as the Amazon strain, the Brazil strain, or Psilocybe yungensis from the Bolivian rainforest.

From the coasts of the Pacific Ocean to the magnificent Andean mountains, to the depth of the lush jungle, these tropical cubensis strains always have a way with us, providing us with incomparable journeys of self-discovery, fantastic perspectives on life, and mind-bending sensations.

We understand why to this very day, the Ecuador Strain is still used in shamanic ceremonies throughout Ecuador, its surrounding countries, as well as cultivated and consumed worldwide.
If you are looking for an easy growing, generous flushing, smooth tripping strain, the Ecuador Strain is your ideal candidate.
