Penis Envy – Magic Mushrooms


Penis Envy is a powerful and common strain of Psilocybe cubensis. The potency is due to the high concentration of psilocybin in these mushrooms when compared to the majority of other magic mushrooms available in Canada today.

What makes Penis Envy stand out?

  • One of the most popular strains in the world;
  • Approximately 3 times more potent than other P. Cubensis species;
  • Well-known, tried-and-true option for enthusiasts.

With psilocybin concentration of 2,9%, Penis Envy is not the option for a faint of heart. It demands careful dosing and at least some experience with magic mushrooms before use. Regardless of all the details, it’s still a guaranteed effective tool for your psychedelic needs.


Penis Envy Mushroom – Appearance

The phallic appearance is to blame for the mushroom’s unusual name. When fresh and just harvested, Penis Envy shrooms should look like this:

  • Size: above average, 5-7 inches long stem, 1 to 2,5 inches in cap diameter;
  • Cap: golden color, bulbous form;
  • Stem: long and thick, wrinkly, significantly “thicker” than the majority of other magic mushrooms.

Overall, the mushroom stands for its name: the shape, size, and the “hardness” of it make it look like a penis some guys would definitely envy. While there’s no official history for the naming of the strain, it’s believed to be related to a similar Freudian term, a female psychosexual development stage.

Penis Envy – Origins

It’s important to mention that there’s no official version of the mushroom origins. We know a few facts about Penis Envy:

  • May grow naturally in Colombia’s Amazon region, possibly in South East Asia;
  • Spores were first collected by Terrence MacKenna in the 1970s;
  • Started growing in popularity in the 1970-1980s all across the United States, Canada, and Europe.

While some facts are verifiable, there’s still a mystery surrounding the origins of the Penis Envy. Luckily, the decades of continuous cultivation and use in a wide spectrum of doses, occasions, and settings, still make it a reliable option, regardless of the mushroom’s shady past.

Penis Envy – How Much to Take

The dosing depends on the desired effect. Note that the figures below are adjusted for dried Penis envy, not the fresh ones:

  • Microdose for barely notable background positive effects: 0,1 to 0,5 mg;
  • Minimal recreational: 0,6 mg to 1 gram;
  • Full recreational: 1 to 3 grams;
  • High dose for intensive spiritual effects: 3 to 5 grams;
  • Heroic: over 5 grams at once (not recommended for beginners).

You should be aware that the best Penis Envy dose is always (without exception) individual, with somewhat broad frames defined for “levels” of expertise. Always start low and slow, gradually increasing the dose to find your “sweet spot” with each administration.

Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms – Administration

While there are numerous ways to consume a dried Penis Envy mushroom, the most frequent method is to chew little pieces of it. Unless you have extensive experience, you’ll need a precise electric scale. Even modest changes in dosage can vary the results. Expect no miracles in terms of flavor: a dried Penis Envy mushroom tastes precisely like a dried mushroom. A touch bitter, not particularly palatable, chewy (dried Penis Envy is especially chewy due to its dense structure). Some suggestions for avoiding the unpleasant taste:

  • Cut your Penis Envy dosage into extra small pieces;
  • Add it to a cold dish as seasoning;
  • Eat something tasty right after you eat the shroom.

Mushrooms are not reactive to any of the proteins in food, so you can add them to anything cold and sweet.

Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms – Efficiency & Safety Rules

Temperatures must be monitored because heat “destroys” psilocybin. A heated Penis Envy mushroom would be a waste of money because the effects would be reduced or eliminated. The setting is crucial and greatly influences your experience with doses higher than a standard microdose. Ascertain that you are at ease in your surroundings, with no stressors expected or present in the next 6 to 8 hours. If you’re new to psychedelics and want to experiment, be sure you don’t overdo your dosage. There should be NO ALCOHOL or MEDICATIONS in your system, as psilocybin in Penis Envy may interact with other pharmacological substances in unanticipated ways.

Penis Envy Shrooms – Effects & What to Expect

The effects will last for 6 to 8 hours start to finish. With all doses except the microdose, you’ll start experiencing the effects in approximately 30 minutes after the administration. The peak will come in approximately 60 to 90 minutes after the administration. The exact effects of Penis Envy will largely depend on the dosage you take:

Microdose (in the span of one week after the first administration):

  • Improved focus;
  • Less fatigue;
  • Productivity boost;
  • Better control and understanding of emotions;
  • Decreased depressive thoughts.

Minimal recreational dose:

  • Minor alterations in perception of the surroundings (visual changes include vibrating and moving contours of objects, sparkling, increased light sensitivity);
  • Notably improved creativity;
  • Significant mood improvement (if the set and setting are right).

Full recreational dose:

  • More prominent perception alteration;
  • Therapeutic effect (if intended) on mental health;
  • Possibly a strictly individual spiritual experience.

High dose:

  • Strong psychedelic effects (visual hallucinations, altered perception of light, sound, increased sensitivity, a deeper «trip»);
  • Easier introspection and improved self-analysis;
  • Dramatically increased compassion and empathy;
  • Open-mindedness, increased ability to process information and think «outside the box»;
  • Lightness in movement, dizziness.

Heroic dose:

Exceptionally strong effects, strictly individual, unpredictable and defined by set and setting. Recommended exclusively to those experienced with psychoactive substances. The effects here are defined not by the substance itself, but by your approach.

When to Take Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms

Penis Envy is different from other psychedelic mushrooms in multiple aspects, though the only one that matters for decision-making is its potency. While mild doses of Penis Envy are perfectly suitable for all common occasions:

  • Take a walk in nature to eliminate anxiety;
  • Discover new “layers” of your favorite music;
  • Connect with your friends and close ones on a deeper spiritual level;

We suggest that the best use for Penis Envy, taking its high potency into account, would be retrospective, aimed at breaking your ordinary inner monologue pathways and wandering off the “usual” consciousness trail.

  • Eliminate your dependency on the DMN (default mode network, the “ordinary” thinking pattern);
  • Expand your creativity and unleash the suppressed potential;
  • Aim at a deeper understanding of your strong and weak mental sides;
  • Break through the self-perception limitations you’ve got “used to”;
  • Come up with life quality improvement ways you would not consider in an unaltered state of mind.

In simple terms, one of the most effective ways to utilize the effects of the Penis Envy mushroom would be just to relax and think, with no boundaries and constraints. 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.

Variations of Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms

Penis Envy, as a Psilocybe cubensis strain, has dozens of variations, close to the original, though altered in specific ways. IMPORTANT: The Penis Envy mushroom that you get by ordering this product is a classic strain, with no alterations made to its characteristics since its initial discovery in the 1970s. Based on your goals and personal response to the strain, you can choose a modified version of Penis Envy. The list of most popular options includes:

Penis Envy 6 (Penis Envy #6, PE6, PE#6)

The designer strain was developed by a famous mycologist Roger Rabbit. It is, essentially, a crossbreed between the classic Penis Envy and TX Orange Cap (another cubensis strain). It’s considered to be a slightly «weaker» alternative to Penis Envy, though it’s still a potent magic mushroom by itself.

Albino Penis Envy (APE, PE Albino)

The main difference, hence the name, is in appearance: APE strain has altered pigmentation and appears more white when fresh or dried. More demanding in terms of cultivation, but just as potent as the classic Penis Envy strain.

Penis Envy Uncut (PEU, Uncut PE)

Taking the naming game to a different level, Penis Envy Uncut has a higher psilocybin concentration and is considered to provide more notable effects than the “original” strain in smaller doses. It’s a relatively new strain, easier to grow, but definitely not recommended to beginners.

Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms – Alternatives

While the Penis Envy is probably the most popular strain on the market, you can expand your experience with other options:

Blue Meanies

Also known as Panaeolus cyanescens (not the Psilocybe cubensis version), are significantly «lighter» and milder than Penis Envy.

Golden Teachers

Even milder alternative, for those seeking a relaxed and stress-free experience. Note that Golden Teachers is still suitable for the advanced psychedelic experience, though the volume of the shroom you’d have to take is higher.

Melmac (aka AMLC)

Significantly different from Penis Envy in terms of appearance, though relatively close to it in terms of potency and effects. For a full selection of top-quality dried magic mushrooms you can buy, please check the Whole Shrooms page.
