Penis envy mushrooms are a famous type of psilocybin-containing mushroom. They are a variety of the commonly used Psilocybe cubensis mushroom.
They can be rare to find due to the difficulty in cultivating them. You won’t encounter them as often as other kinds of magic mushrooms, but they are certainly worth knowing about.
As their name suggests, penis envy mushrooms have a phallic shape. They look very much like a penis.
In terms of color, they usually range from a light tan to a darker brown, with variations amongst the different varieties. Blue bruising on the stem can be an indication of high psilocybin content.
They may be shorter in height and smaller overall than some other species, but they are still relatively heavy mushrooms, owing to their density.
- The Albino Penis Envy variety has a milky white coloration and its caps are sometimes tinged dark blue.
- Penis Envy Uncut mushrooms are distinctive in that their caps do not open at all, not even during the later stages of the mushroom’s maturation.
Many users find that penis envy mushrooms offer a more intense, visual, and euphoric experience than Psilocybe cubensis varieties.
