Psilocybe mexicana is a psychedelic mushroom. Its initial known usage was by the locals of North and Central America over 2,000 years ago. Known to the Aztecs as teotlnanácatl, from the Nahuatl teotl ("god") + nanácatl ("fungus"). This varieties was classified by French botanist Roger Heim.It was from this varieties that Dr. Albert Hofmann, working with samplings grown in his Sandoz lab, first separated as well as named the energetic entheogenic compounds psilocybin as well as psilocin.Uncertain of whether or not the synthetically cultivated mushrooms would keep their natural psychoactive homes, consumed 32 specimens.This mushroom is in the species Mexicanae. Various other mushrooms in the genus include Psilocybe atlantis and Psilocybe samuiensis. Psilocybe mexicana expands alone or in small teams among moss along roadsides as well as tracks, moist meadows or cornfields, particularly in the verdant locations surrounding deciduous forests.Like numerous other psilocybin mushrooms in the category, psilocybe mexicana has been eaten by aboriginal peoples for its entheogenic effects.In the Western world, sclerotia of Psilocybe mexicana are often cultivated for entheogenic use. The sclerotia have a reduced web content of active materials than the actual mushrooms themselves.On paper, this makes P. mexicana weaker in contrast to the extra typically expanded P. cubensis, which are reported to consist of a maximum of 1.3 percent psilocybin and also 0.35 percent psilocin. Nevertheless those that have actually attempted both have reported P. mexicana mushrooms to have comparable, or greater potency than P. cubensis depending upon that you ask. Furthermore, sclerotia of P. mexicana are anecdotally taken into consideration to be of approximately equal effectiveness to P. cubensis mushrooms.
