"Tidal Wave Cubensis", "PE/B+"

The Tidal Wave magic mushroom strain is a Psilocybe cubensis hybrid resulting from the union of the very potent and unique looking Penis Envy and the versatile and spirited B+ strains.
If engineering a mutant is often a way to correct its defaulting genetics, in the case of Tidal Wave, we can say the hereditary of the B+ allowed for a fruitful harvest and easier cultivation, while the irreplaceable potency and looks of the Penis Envy surely helped add uniqueness to the adventure. The ancestors of Tidal Wave on the B+ side are Psilocybe cubensis and Psilocybe azurescens, and on the PE side, none other than the gargantuan Amazonian strain.
Surely, cross breeding has helped design a more performant strain. Where once the meaty bulbous cap of Penis Envy occasionally opened, the B+ produces responsive fruit bodies that generously drop spores and make cultivation much simpler. Even if neither B+ nor Penis Envy were very fast growers, this crossing of traits makes of Tidal Wave the ultimate chameleon: a true tidal wave, from cultivation to consumption, a versatile, beastly looking, productive, and extremely potent magic mushroom, conquering the hearts of both growers and consumers worldwide.

A very strange mutant of Tidal Wave referred to as Enigma or Brainiac, is a particularly interesting variety as instead of the usual fruiting bodies, it produces a blob-like mycelial mass that resembles the texture of a brain and has an exceptionally high potency.

Strain Effects

Tidal wave: an exceptionally large ocean wave, especially one caused by an underwater earthquake or volcanic eruption. A widespread or overwhelming manifestation of an emotion or phenomenon. Note the Tidal Wave is one of the most potent strains out there and must be consumed with parsimony and attention. They are known to provoke intense feelings of euphoria, deep introspection, philosophical thoughts, immense joy, twisted notion of time and space, synaesthesia, lasting up to 6 hours.
