Huautla Magic Mushrooms (Psilocybe Cubensis, Huautla) hold a significant place in the mushroom world because Huautla de Jimenez, a small village in Oxaca state, Mexico is where Gordon R. Wasson was the first westerner to try Psilocybe mushrooms with Maria Sabina in a traditional indigenous ceremony. After this experience Gordon R. Wasson wrote about his experience and shared his experience in the May 1957 edition of Life magazine, titled; “Seeking the Magic Mushroom”. This worldly introduction created much hype and curiosity from the western world about what we know and refer to as magic mushrooms today.
Although magic mushrooms was introduced to the western world in 1957, the Huautla strain was collected in July of 2001 by an online alias known as Club99. He or she collected the samples of Huautla shrooms growing on grass in the pasture land. Surprisingly it was not growing on dung as with other typical mushrooms.
The Huautla can be characterized by tall and skinny. It also has a uniquely shaped cap which tends to be a little pointy. The strain has been domesticated since being collected by Club99 in 2001. This strain has become known as a fast fruiter, creating smaller fruits but large in quantity.
The experience of taking Huautla is very spiritual and eye-opening. Given its historic roots, expect shamanic experiences out of this world. The potency is average to slightly above average but your experience will depend on your set and setting ultimately. If you want to explore within your mind and experience profound change, this strain will do its job.
