Psilocybe mexicana

The Psilocybe mexicana mushroom is a very popular and much cultivated specie. This is mainly because this specie is able to form so-called sclerotia. The sclerotia grows underneath the mushroom throughout the substrate. It looks a little bit like a walnut. The sclerotia contains the psychoactive substances psilocybin and psilocin.
In nature this specie only grows in the subtropical regions of Mexico and Guatemala from June through September. It mainly grows in horse pastures along the field forest at 1000 – 1800 meter.
This specie is also called the Mexican Liberty Cap. The original Indian name for the Psilocybe mexicana is Teonanacatl, which means ‘God’s flesh’. It was the favorite mushroom of the late mushroom shaman Maria Sabina.
