Question
    #26400788 - 12/25/19 08:03 PM (1 year, 2 months ago)

I always hear people putting down cubes because they aren't strong enough or there's better mushrooms around. In your opinion do you think cubes stand with the rest of the mushroom strains?

My opinion they are in their own category and have stood the test of time cause they are still around. I feel they can be better then other mushrooms in their own way.

Cubes are popular because they are relatively easier to grow then the other species. If you are looking for potency, I highly recommend PE or PEU. They can be finicky to grow, but they are worth it.  Several days ago, I had 3.5 grams of PEU, and it knocked me on my ass. I would have had to taken 6 grams or more of regular cubes to get the same effect.

I think some people then are a bit harsh! Yes Psilocybe Cubensis is not the strongest psychoactive strain of mushroom, but it is certainly one of the easier to grow. The McKenna brother’s recipe for growing mushrooms helped spread the growing knowledge and cubensis have subsequently entered the realm of legend.

I’m based in the UK, where our common wild mushroom is the Liberty Cap (Psilocybe Semilanceata). I find Liberty Caps to be so much stronger than cubensis, and the trips tend to go far deeper, and have a much darker feel to them than cubensis.

However, I have tried growing Liberty Caps unsuccessfully for about 4 years now. I have followed many threads in the cultivation forums, but as far as I’m aware, there is minimal success trying to grow semilanceata at home.

But just because cubes are less potent, doesn’t make them weak! Does that make sense? I have had some very intense cubensis trips.

If you want a good rough guide to mushroom strength, check out the Shroomery’s dosage calculator, here.

Hope my two-pence-worth helps.
Take care,
DJ Ed
