Melmac magic mushrooms are a species of Psilocybe cubensis. Penis Envy mushrooms are their closest relatives, as Melmac is PE’s mutation. As a result, Melmac magic mushrooms are one of the most potent choices available in Canada today.
Here are some of the Melmac distinguish features:
The Melmac strain contains less psilocybin than Penis Envy (0.96 to 0.84%, respectively), yet it is no less potent. Many psychonauts indicate that Melmac’s strength is very dependent on growth conditions, necessitating extremely careful dosing because the exact origins of the pack are unknown.
Melmac magic mushrooms have a lovely and distinct appearance. However, because of PE genes, some people claim that they resemble circumcised penises when fresh.
Some mushroomers claim that the term Melmac magic mushrooms comes from the planet of the same name. The planet Melmac was mentioned in the American comedy Alf. Melmac’s twisted and strange appearance leads shroomers to believe they came from outer space.
Melmac’s origins are unknown, as are the origins of all magical mushrooms. However, we are aware of three of the most often discussed theories:
.Terence Mckenna identified the Penis Envy strain in the Amazon Rainforest in the early 1970s and delivered gathered wild spore samples to mycologist Steven Pollock, who isolated Penis Envy genetics.
There’s one more narrative for true conspiracy theorists: Melmac IS the Penis Envy, there were no mutations, and Homestead named Penis Envy “Homestead PE” only to keep the name alive. Melmac was given its original name due to its distinctive physical characteristics, which shroom producers kept and replicated for many years.
Every trip is unique and the dose depends on desired effects. The list below is just an example, adjusted for dried Melmac magic mushrooms.
The principle “you go quieter – you will continue” always works with magic mushrooms. With a wide range of options available, it is always best to start low and slowly increase your dosage until you find your “sweet spot” with every administration.
Psilocybin naturally breaks down to Psilocin in our stomach under the influence of stomach acids. And these two are the main substances that make you trip. So, the best way to administer a magic mushroom is to just eat it. However, we can understand people who don’t like the dried mushroom taste, which is a bit earthy, flour-like, and chewy. Here are some tips to avoid it without compromising the shroom’s potency:
There is also a great option to buy magic mushroom edibles. It is chocolates or bars that contain psilocybin to make your trip also extremely tasty. You can check our Adventure Bars and Cereal Bars pages to learn more.
First of all, avoid alcohol and medications. Mixing shrooms with booze or other drugs, particularly those impacting your nervous system, can be unsafe and lead to unexpected outcomes. We will never tire of reminding you — to start low and go slow: Begin with a lower dose to gauge your individual response, and gradually increase as needed. This helps minimize potential risks and negative side effects. Clear your agenda before the trip. A usual mushroom trip takes 6-8 hours, so ensure you’ve got no pressing tasks or duties during that time. And, don’t push yourself afterward. Give yourself time to integrate. After your trip, take some time to rest and reflect on your experience to process any insights, emotions, or lessons you may have gained during your journey. Always prioritize your safety and well-being while consuming magic mushrooms or any other psychedelic substances.
You’ll feel the first effects after approximately 30 minutes after the administration. The peak will be at 60 to 90 minutes in the trip. Overall Melmac’s experience usually lasts up to 6 hours. We can’t describe the exact thing you’ll see or feel, everything is individual and depends not only on a person, room, or setting, but also on the dose itself. So, here is a breakdown of the effects, depending on the Melmac’s dose:
It is definitely not an experience for everyone. Melmac contains double to triple the amount of psilocybin and psilocin, compared to other cubensis strains. This means that it is extremely potent and taking it in high doses can give the inexperienced user an overwhelming trip with ego breakdown and heavy hallucinations. If you are a newcomer — please, don’t start with a heroic dose.
Magic mushrooms, regardless of the strain, can be taken for various reasons and in different situations. It’s important to note that individual preferences and experiences will differ. Here are a few potential occasions to take Melmac magic mushrooms: Level up your party or festival experience with enhanced social activity; Take a walk in the park or in the woods to feel the strong connection with nature; Enjoy art and music, finding more and more new things even in your old favorite songs. Melmac, as Penis Envy, delivers a strong psychedelic experience, rather than bodily sensations. It will be a great idea to take its potency into account and administer it in a safe zone, preferably with a trip sitter. Thus it will help you to:
The mindset, environment, dosage, and intention play a crucial role in ensuring a positive and beneficial experience. While there are many occasions that give you limitless possibilities to sit back, relax and slowly drift in your consciousness — always prioritize your safety. NOTE: We’re talking about positive effects and occasions that are possible exclusively in case you’re in a good state of mind, in a comfortable and calm place, with no people around that might intentionally or unintentionally ruin your experience and turn your journey into a bad trip.
