I will start off!

 

I love psylocibe Cubensis. My favorite strains are Transeki and BKP. however, their difference from any cube is negligible. 

 

but my favorite would have to be Hoogshengii Semperviva. Of all the different types, this one seems to be fluent in spirit :)

 

What is your favorite and why?

I'm loving the Malabar cubensis, but that's all I've been growing and it was a well developed strain. I've tried the semperviva and they were amazing, but I've not tried a large dose.

Psilocybe Cyanescens has been my #1 companion for a few years now. It is a very gentle species that presents very little body discomfort when eaten dried and no discomfort whatsoever when brewed in tea. I and many of my friends have noted that it allows for very powerful emotional connection and clarity of elocution. Some say it has MDMA-like effects.

Psilocybe Mexicana is a close second. I use the latter for sensory-deprived trips. It tends to induce strong mesoamerican imagery and has lead me to some very profound insights. I find it to be a more masculine spirit, it teaches with a firm hand (which is good and necessary at times) whereas the Ps. Cyanescens is feminine and comforting.

I've also eaten wild Panaeolus Cambodginiensis once, and I noticed that it had an LSD-like quality to it; very clean and shockingly potent. It's also the only species I've found to induce strong audio hallucinations. Very strong 3D CEVs.

Cubensis probably needs no description but I find it hard on the body and the imagery very chaotic/alien so I don't bother with it unless I have no other choice. Vegetable cartoons.

Of all the species I've sampled so far (P. cubensis, P. semilanceata, P. cyanescens, some P. gaindoi/mexicana (in sclerotia form) and Panaeolus cyanescens)...my favourite is the Pan cyans, the "Hawaiian" strain at least. I like them because for me they reliably induce a very clean, clear, colourful, visionary, tropical bemushroomed state of consciousness...highly distinct for me compared to the often foggier, heavier, less colourful head space of the P. cubensis). I think them being more potent and one having to eat less of them may contribute to this, they don't weight one down as much and seem to be easier on the body. Also the transitional, coming up period of them tends to be really smooth compared to a big dose of P. cubensis which can sometimes produce some transient anxiety.

 

It is very clear to me that each species has its own signature or character, beyond simple set, setting or environmental factors and I think it's good to see fun-guys exploring other species. My first P. galindoi is currently fruiting, I have some fully colonised P. hoogshagenii 'Semperviva' jars, some P. mexicana on agar, and some P. caerulescens in liquid culture form, now ready to go. All these latter species are held in very high regard by indigenous mushroom using groups in Mexico, so I'm very excited to experience some of these species in the near future, and have a feeling I may need to revise my "fave mushroom" nomination! I'm even more psyched now to try the P. hoogshagenii 'Semperviva', I only seem to hear consistently amazing things about these mushrooms from anyone whose sampled them which is very encouraging! :cool:

Mexicana ATL7 stones are my favorite. Easy to grow and a better time than cubes.

My experience is with only three types of Cubes.

 

Golden Teachers

Orissa India

Redboys

 

It's hard to describe a difference between them and very easy to make comparisons. Or to sum up - they are more alike than different.

 

Given the descriptions above of the pans and mexicans I think I'd better diversify.

The penis envy, B+ and Z+ are not favorites of mine. I just yawned a lot. Could be the strain or grower... The pf classics made me see things.
I also must add, lsd does not work on me. Tried a bunch of times with little to no effect, which made me sad.

True lsd25 is quite rare these days. Plus if one is on an SSRI or similar, it can greatly affect any psychedelics' efficacy.

It makes me sad that anybody who CAN source lsd cannot enjoy it.

 

Damn, it would be like having both sets of sex organs and their placement being such that they could not reach each other  :)

I've only ever experienced or cultivated P. Cubensis, but I love how remarkably easy it is to grow more than enough for private personal use.

 

The first cubensis variety ("strain") I grew was B+, so I'm pretty partial to it. I also had some great success with P. Hawaiians and I'd like to try growing those again soon. The way the P. Hawaiians grew in little clusters was very different from my experiences with how B+ likes to form for the most part. The P. Hawaiians clusters were so beautiful. Shame I didn't snap any photos.

 

I understand that every variety/subtype of cubensis can have its own unique characteristics, especially how they end up looking visually. It'll be interesting to try a few more types one day.

 

 

 

I also must add, lsd does not work on me. Tried a bunch of times with little to no effect, which made me sad.

 

 

 

True lsd25 is quite rare these days. Plus if one is on an SSRI or similar, it can greatly affect any psychedelics' efficacy.

 

 

I have an interesting personal anecdotal experience about being on an atypical antipsychotic and tripping on LSD and mushrooms. The atypical antipsychotic prescribed along with a mood stabilizer has never, ever impacted my ability to fully experience either LSD or mushrooms.

 

The last time I experienced LSD was in summer of 2009, though. From what I understand not long after that by a few years suddenly there were other compounds that could fit on a blotter and were passed off as LSD. There are many, many more new compounds that can fit on a blotter, some of them lysergimides.

 

I'm just happy that my medications don't impact by ability to have an occasional mushroom experience.

 

I'm sure with SSRI medications it'd be much different. I keep seeing people online in different places saying how if you're on an antipsychotic like Seroquel, of which I take 600mg each night (Yes, a lot of Seroquel), you won't be able to trip.

 

I suppose that the way these medications affects each individual can be very different.
