Golden mammoth belongs to the Psilocybecubensis family of magic mushrooms and is popular for being a rare P. cubensis variant. Find out what makes the Golden mammoth unique from the rest.
Research shows that Psilocybe mushrooms have over 200 species. Each species of the genus Psilocybe carries unique characteristics, including varying ratios of psilocybin, psilocin, and baeocystin – the three psychotropic compounds commonly found in psilocybe mushrooms.
Magic mushrooms are classified primarily according to their conditions for cultivation, appearance, and potency. P. cubensis, P. azurescens, P.cyanescens, and P. semilanceata are the four most widely known psilocybe classifications. These species of magic mushrooms have the highest market availability because these shrooms are the easiest to grow and cultivate. Their habitat is moist soil, grasslands, and rotting trees.
Among the four families of magic mushrooms listed above, P. cubensis is the favorite of many psychonauts. Likewise, it is the ‘go to’ strain for beginners since it has strains with low potency, which are advisable for neophytes. Moreover, it has many variants that are widely accessible in the market. Even though the shroom has several strains, one variant that psychonauts recognize as the rarest shroom in this family is the not-so-common P. cubensis strain: the golden mammoth.
