Albino penis envy mushrooms
Albino penis envy mushrooms is a derivative of the Penis Envy (P.E.) which is one of the most potent Psilocybin Cubensis strains. APE is often reported to be the strongest of the PE variants. Its effects include vivid visual stimulation, intense feelings of euphoria, uncontrollable laughter, and joy, along with periods of deep introspective and philosophical thought. Its characteristics are similar to P.E. with short, thick, dense stalks and a small but beautifully coloured white sometimes blue cap, truly an “otherworldy” looking mushroom.
An advantage of APE is that it’s a sturdy fungus, able to tolerate conditions (such as excessive heat, as when a heater malfunctions) that would kill almost any other kind of crop; poor growing conditions or residue from cleaning products can cause malformed fruiting bodies, but there is a crop[x]. All this is not to say that careful attention to temperature and humidity and other details is unimportant—APE will do better if it is well-cared-for.
APE, like other hallucinogenic mushroom species, is illegal to grow or possess in many places. “Possession” includes growing the mushrooms. And yet, in many jurisdictions, possessing the spores is perfectly legal because it is the hallucinogenic substances, not the fungus that produces them, that the law concerns itself with. The mushroom contains the prohibited substances, so the mushroom is just as illegal as a vial of liquid psilocybin would be. But the spores can’t make a person trip—they don’t contain any of the active ingredients, so the law doesn’t care (again, there are exceptions). That’s why it’s legal to sell, even advertise, growing kits that, if used as directed, will place the user in serious legal jeopardy.
Before growing or using APE, or any other hallucinogenic mushroom, it’s important to learn what applicable law is in your area. Some people choose to break the law for any number of reasons, but getting arrested accidentally through ignorance would be unfortunate in the extreme.
Effects of Using APE Mushrooms
Penis Envy-type variants are popularly considered the most powerful strains of P. cubensis, and APE is considered the most powerful of the Penis Envy variants[xi]. Its effects have been described in glowing terms as being very visual with a lot of euphoria and deep thoughts. However, P. cubensis in general is highly variable in its potency, and the effect of eating the mushrooms can vary, too, depending on both set and setting (the mindset and the surroundings of the user at the time). The bottom line is that mushroom variety is not always a reliable predictor of the quality of the experience[xii].
