Various names: Equador, Ecuadorian
Background: Ecuador Magic Mushrooms (Psilocybe Cubensis Ecuador) originated from the highlands in the Andean region of Ecuador which had altitudes of over 1100 meters. The ancient mushrooms are extremely robust and can withstand some of the toughest environments nature has thrown at them. Ecuadorian mushrooms have been used by the whole Andes region and by pre-Columbian Mesoamerican culture to induce an altered state of consciousness and healing rituals and religious ceremonies. The local shamans and healers still use the Ecuadorian magic mushrooms in ritual ceremonies to this very day.
Distinctive properties: The Ecuador magic mushroom is easily identifiable by its long sturdy stem, which is quite thick, as well as its large caramel caps that have a classic “nipple” in the middle.
Effects: Users of the Ecuadorian Cubensis describe their experience as a very spiritual trip and often experience a dreamy euphoric state of mind with many visuals. The initial effects can be quite intense before easing downwards and becoming more chill. This strain is a favorite among psychonauts due to its lack of body high that other mushrooms are known to produce but offers solely a clean and more spiritual experience.
