I wouldn’t compare any mushroom to mescaline cacti... just not an appropriate comparison IMO. There’s no way to explain what’s different about this mushroom; it has to be experienced. You know in the game Diablo when you find a rusty mediocre sword in a skeleton’s ribcage at the beginning; it works ok, you can definitely kill some skeletons with it, but it’s just not powerful enough to do much more than that. Later on once you level up a bit you eventually find a badass unique-grade sword with gold lettering and magical powers that enable you to defeat extremely horrible demons (or hoards of angry bipedal cows). That’s sort of like the difference between cubensis and semperviva. I have nothing against cubensis by the way, I still eat them often, but semperviva is on a different level.
