Ecuador cubensis is an Ecuadorian strain of the widely known species of the psilocybin-containing mushroom Psilocybe cubensis. The Ecuadorian cubensis does not appear to be morphologically or characteristically different from Psilocybe cubensis, arguably, it is the most majestic of all Psilocybes.
The history of the Ecuadorian strain is unfortunately unavailable but the Psilocybe cubensis was first discovery by the Spaniards during the age of colonialism and was taxonomically classified during the 1900s. Since then Psilocybe cubensis has become a widely cultivated psilocybe-containing mushroom throughout the world due to its ease of cultivation and moderate hallucinogenic potency. The Ecuadorian cubensis is a much lesser known and cultivated strain, but it shares the hallucinogenicity and ease of cultivation of its ancestor.
The cap of this species is 2 to 8cm across in diameter. It is conical to bell-shaped with a central knob, or umbo, at first. However, with age, the cap expands becoming convex to broadly convex and eventually flat-topped with or without the umbo. The color of the cap in young mushrooms is chestnut or cinnamon-brown, becoming light or golden brown at maturity. The surface of the cap is viscid to smooth when moist but dries rapidly. The veil often leaves behind spotted remnants on the cap, which tend to disappear with time, leaving behind an overall smooth surface.
How to prepare Magic Mushroom
Collect mushrooms carefully using scissors or a knife. If they are dirty, wash them in a bucket of water. Dry mushrooms by spreading them out on paper towels in a warm place. You can then store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry area. Soak a handful in warm water and drink it as tea. You can also use it to make soup and chocolate. Many people believe that psilocybin mushrooms make great edibles, but they don’t work well when cooked. To enjoy psilocybin mushrooms fresh, dry them completely and store them away from sunlight.
Ecuador cubensis Prescribed Dosage
This mushrooms usually come in single doses of 0·2–0·4 mg/kg orally as part of a medically monitored, drug-assisted psychotherapeutic treatment program. Some people also take psilocybin in micro doses, but there isn’t enough information available to determine whether these micro doses are safe or effective.
Psilocybin is illegal under federal law in the US. It is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance.
There are currently a lot of researchers looking into the positive effects of magic mushrooms and psychedelics on mental health and illnesses like depression.
The psilocybin seems to “re-order” the way our brain approaches problems and allows people to get to the root cause of the problem and then help to reduce the symptoms of depression. In a recent study at Imperial college London. 59 people took part in a trial comparing magic mushrooms to conventional anti-depressants and they found that those taking the magic mushrooms were significantly more affected than those who took the “conventional” antidepressants. In that their mood increased and they were more able to deal with the root causes of their issues ( during these trials the participants were given therapy alongside the compounds being tested)
Nevertheless, One needs to be careful with this mushroom as it possess with them potentially dangerous side effects on your body.
Ecuador cubensis is possibly safe when using it as a single dose under medical supervision. Also, using a single dose of psilocybin doesn’t have side effects. The most common side effects include; confusion, fear, hallucinations, headache, high blood pressure, nausea, and paranoia. Despite being a controlled substance in the US, the risk for abuse seems low. Withdrawal symptoms and physical dependence don’t appear to be a major concern.
There isn’t enough reliable information to know if psilocybin is safe to use without medical supervision at any dose, including micro doses.
