Mikey - I harvested both the original CNM and CNZ spores from within 20 yards of each other. Both were growing on the eastern side of the mountain the Mazatec call the 'chicon nindo,' the mexicana was growing along an open ridge amidst stands of wild grass, and the CNZ was growing on the side of a trail amidst a coniferous forest. But they're both more or less harvested from the exact same area.
Moropholocially, they're completely different mushrooms. The CNM is dainty, small, like a mexcana; the CNZ is a thicker mushroom. For the record, the Zapo is strong as hell ... probably the strongest mushroom I've ever eaten. 1gram laid me out flat.
I am curious or confused I guess. Azure7 or anyone else that can answer. There seems to be a strain labeled Ps. Zapotecorum (Chico Nindro) thought to originated from within a 100 yards of Maria Sabina’s home. I am assuming what I am growing labeled as such came from the same unnamed source. Then there is this thread with identical looking fruibodies and similar growth parameters, labeled as Mexicana. What is the difference between the CNZ and CNM? But I suppose If no DNA work has been done the we really don’t know do we, other that what we label it as.
