Puerto Rico Cubensis was first observed near the town of Canovanas located on the Northeast side of the island. This strain has been reviewed on several online platforms as exceptionally potent Psilocybe cubensis.
This strain reliably elicits feelings of euphoria, love, and connection to those around you, along with visual stimulation, deep introspection, and often a quite 'mystical' aura. This makes it a versatile strain, suitable for either therapeutic or recreational use.
Its visual characteristics consist of medium fruiting bodies with thin, but dense stalks and a beautiful golden cap. It's stems readily bruise a deep azure-blue, indicative of the potency these fruits possess.
