Ancient Architecture and Magic Mushrooms?
Cambodian Cubensis belong to the Psilocybe Cubensis family. This strain of magic mushroom comes from… you guessed it — Cambodia! Angkor Wat to be exact, they were allegedly discovered by famous mycologist John Allen and brought to the Americas. Legend has it, however, that these beauties were used long before they were 'discovered' by tribal cultures of Cambodia and South East Asia. These shrooms are known for their rapid colonization and growth. Many users have reported an energetic and creative high. Cambodians are one of the most popular strains of psilocybin mushrooms, most of the time if someone is mentioning magic mushrooms at all they are likely referring to either Golden Teachers or Cambodians.
Cambodians are known to be among the most psilocybin mushrooms, but of course this also depends on the dosage, your size, weight and your tolerance level. Some people are much more sensitive than others and need a much smaller dose to experience the effects. This is why it’s always recommended to start small and work your way up! Don’t forget that sometimes less is more.
While potent, the high can be somewhat chill with not many visuals or body buzz, but they do seem to give a good dose of energy, creative inspiration and a philosophical, introspective mindset.
Potential Benefits From Cambodian Cubensis
Users have reported many benefits including a decrease in depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive tendencies. This strain has the ability to take you outside yourself to then look back at yourself, your life and your relationships from an entirely new perspective. You know when a friend is venting about their issues, and the answers seem so clear to you from the outside looking in? This is the same sort of idea here. You can get outside of yourself a bit, to observe and reflect, typically from a place of non-judgment.
How To Take This Strain
Unless you are an experienced user, I wouldn’t recommend taking more than 1 gram. You can eat it as is or make a mushroom tea. From my own experience, I find that eating the mushrooms whole will yield a slightly stronger experience that will often last longer than consuming the mushrooms in a tea. To make tea you can use 1 gram of dried shrooms, chopped up, to 1 cup of boiling water. Steep for 15 minutes, you can add in tea bags or loose leaf tea to mask the flavour a bit. Common ones are ginger or peppermint which can help to mitigate the nausea that often comes along with taking the shrooms. Let the tea cool, pour into a cup and squish the mushrooms over a strainer and drink up. With the tea I find the high comes on quickly and leaves quicker than with eating them, but keep in mind, with Cambodian cubensis specifically, the high tends to last longer than other strains of psychedelic mushrooms.
