Legend has it that the Penis Envy Strain strain is a mutation from an exceptionally large and potent mushroom culture found deep in the amazon rainforest, by legendary entheobotanist and psychonaut Terrence Mckenna.
Mckenna apparantly had cultivated this amazon strain for several years when it mutated, and with the help of Stephen Pollack the mutation was isolated, and a new line of mushroom genetics was created.
PE effects include vivid visual stimulation, intense feelings of euphoria, and deep introspection and philosophical thought. They are approximately 30% stronger than most other cubensis mushrooms
Its charasteristics consist of large dense stalks with an underdeveloped pale cap, somewhat resembling a phallic object. PE mushrooms drop very few spores and therefore are difficult to propagate. This, along with increased potency makes them a rare and desirable strain.
Penis Envy Cubensis
Psilopedia recommends 1.0 grams of Penis Envy per 100lbs body weight.
