Cambodian Magic Mushroom
The Cambodian Magic Mushroom Cubensis strain of magic mushroom may be one of the most popular hallucinogenic mushrooms in North America. When a person mentions magic mushrooms, they’re either talking about Golden Teacher, or the Cambodian Cubensis. The strain’s pale brown caps and webby partial veil grace makes it recognizable by those who are even just slightly experienced with shrooms.
Unlike the Penis Envy strain of shrooms that lead to very intense trips, Cambodian Cubensis provides a more visual experience, limiting its effects only to what you see instead of all 5 of your senses. The strain is heralded as one of the best for taking on campsites or in chilled out social situations, and is generally safer to consume than more intensive strains.
P.cubensis may be the most popular hallucinogenic mushroom in the world. It’s what’s usually meant by phrases like “magic mushrooms” and “shrooms,” and its pale brown caps and webby partial veil grace much trip-inspired art. There are other active mushrooms—dozens of other Psilocybes, plus some Amanitas (these contain moscimol, rather than psilocybin, and therefore produce very different effects)–but P. cubensis grows wild almost world-wide and has been developed into many cultivated strains.
One of these strains is Cambodian[i], which is, indeed, from Cambodia. Reportedly it was a natural variation discovered growing wild near the famous Angkor Wat, collected, and then cultivated. It is known for its rapid colonization and growth as well as its energetic, creative high.
