“TPE”, Texan Psilocybe cubensis

The Texas Penis Envy, or Texan PE, is the result from the union of a Texan Psilocybe cubensis to the very potent Penis Envy.
Apart from international smuggling, robbery, murder, drug dealing, and genetic mutation, the Penis Envy mushroom strains all share a fascinating origin story.

The Texan Penis Envy ancestor, the PE, is a dense phallic-shaped psilocybin-packed cubensis mutant that emerged in the 1970ies. It was rumoured to be found growing from the rich grounds of the Amazonian rainforest, where legendary entheogenic botanist/mycologist Terence McKenna came across a gargantuan patch of beastly looking mushrooms. After cultivating the spores he had brought back, he then sent the newly harvested breed to his colleague Dr. Pollock.

Pollock is believed to be the designer of the unique odd-looking specie we know today as PE. It is also suspected that the original specimen found in the Amazon was also the one that later gave birth to the Amazon strain strain aka PESA.
Though PE strains presents a laborious and slow growth, they are nonetheless reputed to be one of the most cultivated and appreciated of the cubensis hybrids out there.

Texas, the second largest state of the USA, even if so primitive when it comes to the freedom of women (aka their right to abort), is one of the states allowing research into how psilocybin, the active alkaloid in magic mushrooms, might help people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The Food & Drug Administration is also helping accelerate the arduous process surrounding psychedelic research by designating psilocybin therapy as a “breakthrough therapy”.

With a climate stretching between cool and warm sections of the Northern hemisphere, Texas is known for its grassland, vast plains, desert terrain and rolling hills. The Texan Psilocybe cubensis is a resistant, robust, and very prolific specie that can thrive when humidity allows it.
The Texas Penis Envy obviously inherited the fierce potency of the PE and the prosperous nature of the Psilocybe cubensis, the most widespread species out there!
A perfect combination of easy growth and effective trippyness, makes the Texas Penis Envy a great choice for growers and consumers.

The PE family, alongside strong strains like Psilocybe Azurescens, Panaeolus cyanescens, Albino Penis Envy, or AA+ are fruitful candidates for micro-dosing to enhance performance and foster a sense of wellbeing.

The Texas PE surely carries amazing genetics – from the Amazonian rainforest of Columbia, to somewhere between McKenna and Pollok’s respective labs, to the rolling hills of Texas, it is now being cultivated and consumed worldwide. This is yet another astounding example of the adaptability of these organisms. Have a look at our growing list of magic mushrooms.


Visual Description

Coloration is yellow-brown to yellowish, sometime cinnamon brown to dingy olive in age. Disk is often darker and margin clearer to whitish. Margin is regular. Flesh stains blue to blue-green. • Gills: adnate to adnexed. • Stem: Dense, at time wrinkly. Often presents a bulbous annular zone, making stem thicker in upper area.

Habitat Origin

Hybrid, union of subtropical PE and Texas Psilocybe Cubensis. Today, cultivated worldwide.


It is a very potent strain, to consume with care. Psychonauts report effects similar to DMT and LSD. PE are known to provoke intense feelings of euphoria, deep introspection, philosophical thoughts, immense joy, twisted notion of time and space, synaesthesia, lasting up to 4 hours. Out of body experiences and mind-bending effects may be expected as well. Often advised to consume with the right setting and mindset as their strong potency can also make one feel like a hostage.
