Ensuring our psychedelic mushroom spores remain contamination-free is one of our top priorities, each spore batch is contamination tested both with agar and grain. Not only do we test for contamination but also for spore purity levels. All of our magic mushroom spores are tested in a state-of- the-art laboratory, this confirms both high purity levels as well as the spores’ authenticity.
Penis Envy Spore Syringe Option Includes:
1x Penis Envy 6 spore solution in a sealed 10ml sterile syringe, 1x sterile needle, 1x alcohol swab. Spore syringe solution can last up to 12 months and should be refrigerated until time of use, and shaken well before use.
Mushroom spore syringes are the most well known method of inoculation because of its ease of use, and provide more contamination resistance when compared to liquid culture and agar culture. Spore syringes are a great choice for both novice and experienced mycologists.
Penis Envy Mushroom History
There is no concrete evidence explaining where the Penis Envy strain actually came from, although there are several theories, some of which are rather outlandish.
One of the more wild claims suggests that the bulbous mushroom species originated from outer space, hitching a ride on an alien spacecraft headed for earth. Others stories claim that its discovery was involved in a murder and some also believe Penis Envy is the result of mutations. Although the majority of the mycology world believes the strain was discovered by Terence McKenna.
Scientist, mycologist, author, psychonaut, and lecturer, Terence McKenna claims to have found an enormous healthy patch of magic mushrooms growing in Colombian Amazonian Rainforest. McKenna, intrigued by his finding, took spore prints of what is now believed to be of the Amazonian Cubensis variety.
Once McKenna had returned home, he was excited to share his findings with his friend Steven Pollock. Being from the medical field, Pollock was very interested in the healing abilities of psychedelic mushrooms.
After receiving the spore prints from McKenna, Pollock began his work in culturing the strain. Over many years Pollock had made improvements to the strain through mycological isolation, until one day, he noticed a tremendously mutated mushroom. Amazed by the mutation, he cultured it and began cultivating the new strain.
Pollock knew he had hit a home run because of the mutated magic mushrooms’ extreme potency when compared to other varieties he had tried. He named the monstrosity Penis Envy, after the shrooms phallic appearance. And that is the legend of how the Penis Envy mushroom came to exist.
Growing Penis Envy Shrooms
Cultivating Penis Envy mushrooms comes with several challenges but they are one of the most potent psychedelic strains around, making them both rare and desirable. Don’t let Penis Envys difficulty deter you from attempting to grow them, we will share our secrets with you so that you can achieve a successful crop of these famous fungi. Although difficult, the challenge ahead will feel all the more rewarding once you get there.
Penis Envy shrooms lack a velum to hold spores until maturity, making their sporulation ineffective. This results in a limited number of spores being released, making spore collection difficult. If you’re considering cultivation of this strain you will need several Penis Envy mushrooms to have any chance of successful propagation.
Another contributing factor to the overall difficulty of growing Penis Envy mushrooms is its vulnerability to contamination. The highly popular strain is far less resistant to contamination when compared to other strains and it also takes more than 25 percent longer to fully colonize. Pins are less frequent and it will require specific conditions for their incubation stage. Furthermore Penis Envy’s require more moisture and in addition to substrate, and a casing layer. The strain’s deficiencies and specialized needs are believed to be a result of their genetic line being chosen artificially, this strain would have never developed on its own in nature.
Apart from increased risk of contamination and limited sporulation Penis Envy magic mushrooms are not picky when it comes to bulk substrate and spawn. Coco coir and manure as well as grains like rye, oats, popcorn, and millet are all viable options. Don’t worry for anyone who is unsure in regards to which spawn medium and bulk substrate to choose, we’ve got you covered. Our in-house mushroom spawn and mushroom substrate can supply any type of mushroom with all of the nutrients they need to thrive. Unlike other psilocybe cubensis , PE mushrooms will happily pull away from their substrate, allowing for easier harvests and healthier substrate to carry into subsequent flushes.
Appearance of the Penis Envy Strain
It’s no surprise the Penis Envy name was given to the magic mushroom strain because of its penis-like appearance. Contrary to popular belief, Penis Envy does not provide any added male enhancement, although psychedelic mushrooms have been known to, well, get people excited.
The phallic looking mushroom is smaller and shorter than other Psilocybe Cubensis varieties, however it makes up for its shortcomings by its density. PE’s gnarly shaped shaft and bulbous cap keeps it true to its name. Another characteristic that is unique to this mushroom is the underdeveloped cap and lack of velum (viel) separating from the cap.
The lack of velum is one of the contributing factors that makes Envy’s difficult to grow because, at times it can cause ineffective sporulation. Luckily Penis Envy mushrooms are not the same color as the real thing. Shades of light tan and sometimes dark brown are common colors of the original Penis Envy strain, although with other crossbred strains such as Albino Penis Envy, Penis Envy #6, and Penis Envy Uncut the colors may vary. PE mushrooms are known to be heavy bruisers, blue bruising can often be found on the stem. The bruising is a result of the psilocybin content, which has been tested to be more than double most other Psilocybe Cubensis strains, making them a highly desirable strain.
Psychedelic Effects of Penis Envy Mushrooms
People who consume Penis Envy mushrooms should expect to feel the effects anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours after consumption. Psilocybin mushrooms affect everyone differently depending on several factors such as diet, metabolism, weight, and the environment.
Not only are PE shrooms known for their unique appearance, but also their intense potency. Studies by Oakland Hyphae show Penis Envy psychedelics may be 50 to 100 percent more potent than other Psilocybe Cubensis strains. These powerful chode-like mushrooms also last longer than other varieties, some psychonauts have reported effects lasting as long as 6 hours.
With Penis Envy being one of the most powerful magic mushrooms in the world, it is recommended for adventurers to take less than they normally would and for newbies to proceed with caution. It delivers an intense and profound trip with an array of effects including: euphoria, enhanced visuals, light distortion, spiritual, peacefulness, emotional clarity, introspection, perceptual shifts, and connectedness to those around oneself.
