About

Psilocybe mexicana, commonly known as the Mexican Magic Mushroom, holds a pivotal place in psychedelic history. Revered by indigenous peoples of Central America for centuries, it was the mushroom species from which Dr. Albert Hofmann first isolated psilocybin and psilocin in 1958. These mushrooms typically grow in mossy pastures and wooded areas, particularly in damp, grassy soils rich in humus and plant debris. They are known for their moderate potency and have been used both ceremonially and recreationally.
