Penis Envy (Psilocybe Cubensis)
What Are Penis Envy Mushrooms?
Penis Envy mushrooms are a species of magic mushrooms that are named after their extraordinary phallic shape. Yes, these mushrooms do, indeed, resemble a penis. This characteristic is said to be caused by a genetic mutation, giving the Penis Envy shrooms a thick, gnarly stem and oval-shaped cap. They are also known as psilocybe cubensis penis envy mushrooms.
Penis Envy shrooms were said to have been developed a few decades ago by Terence McKenna, a famous mycologist, and author. They are considered one of the strongest varieties of magic mushrooms, as their potency is extremely strong and the trip they foster lasts for many, many hours.
