Huautla cubensis is a species of magic mushroom originating from the mountain range Sierra de Huautla which is in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Cubensis Huautla is said to be the alternate candidate that Mazatec shaman Maria Sabina would use for her Veladas ceremonies when the Psilocybe caerulescens season was over.
For that reason, P. cubensis Huautla embodies the spiritual essence of the sacred indigenous tradition of “teonanacatl” (teotl: god, nanacatl: mushroom) and the act of monanacahuia (“to mushroom oneself”).
The indigenous tribes of Mexico consumed mind altering plants and organisms mostly to help cure diseases and liberate themselves from burdening emotional luggage. It is said the mushroom helps one confront and accept their shadows, the parts of the psyche you have ignored or repressed.
The ritual entheogenic use of Psilocybes in Mesoamerica goes back thousands of years and includes strains such as: P. aztecorum, P. mexicana, P. zapotecorum, P. caerulipe, P. hoogshagenii, P. muliercola, P. mazatepec.
The Huautla fungus carries the name of the city it is native from, Huautla de Jimenez. Situated in the Cañada region of the state of Oaxaca, it is a fertile and warm flat land, fed by the Salado and Tomellín rivers. Also called “Tejao”, Eagle’s Nest in Mazatec, it was the largest town during the Aztec era and is still considered the cultural heart of the region. Today Huautla is said to be the land of Hippies and Hongos (mushroom in Spanish), while its neighbouring town Teotitlán is the land of administrative fonctionnaires.
Surely, this inoffensive looking little brown mushroom brings excitement and spiritual enlightenment to those who get to know it. Behind its fragile stature, its thin long stem, and cute conic cap hides the beginning of a long and powerful psychedelic journey. While many consumers describe the sight of dancing fractals and deep bodily sensations, one can only wonder is the colorful, vibrant culture of Oaxaca may have anything to do with that little extra depth this tiny fellow seems to carry.
From the generous land of mangos, melons and avocado, Huautla cubensis echoes the fertile memories of a symbolic and sacred past. Considered an easy grower and generous fruiter, it is a great choice for lazy cultivators and of course, a priceless candidate for the experienced psychonaut in quest of a life-changing, mind-bending awakening.
