LIZARD KING CUBENSIS
The Lizard King cubensis is a Psilocybe cubensis originating from the arid Northern Mexico where it was found growing on an unusual substrate for a cubensis – a mixture of wood and horse dung.
Rumors say this Mexican cubensis is linked to a man who has found several Mexicanaespecies in the region and names himself Lizard King. It is almost inevitable to associate the strain to the shamanic-influenced American rock star Jim Morrison, who considered the lizard as his nagual or spirit animal.
Surely, all the mystery around the Lizard King cubensis strain make us wonder it is yet another relative of the sacred neighbouring strains such as P. aztecorum or P. mexicana.
As desolate and devoid of life we may think deserts are, they have hidden micro-climates and we know mushrooms are survivalist aliens, so it is no surprise that they will burst from the sand.
Today, the Lizard King cubensis is cultivated indoor and said to be a fast grower and generous fruiter. Its moderate potency is reputed to make it a smooth choice for outdoor adventures and contemplative journeys.
Whether it carries the rebellious spirit of Jim Morrison’s or the cold-blooded temper of the desert creature, the Lizard King cubensis strain surely vibes with New Mexico’s peaceful landscapes, minimal nature, and endless horizons. We can only suspect it to gift us the fantastic wisdom of inner explorations, where it is not where we are going that matters, but how we get there.
