Mazatapec Mushrooms

Still recognized by many elder users as THE original magic mushroom variety, the “discovery” of Mazatapec mushrooms in the 1950s by Americans barely hints at their long and illustrious reputation among the Mazatec people of Oaxaca, who traditionally use this strain in multigenerational family rituals. At smaller doses, the soft body glow and heightened sense of awareness make for a tranquil, relaxing way to experience the world around you, or get on your own level with headphones. Highly spiritual for some users, profoundly emotional for others, this transformative, therapeutic strain has been known help unlock memories and give a greater understanding of self and our unique place and role in our community and the universe. As the cosmos comes into sharper focus, old mantras surrounding peace and love seem to take on immediate resonance, making this potent strain feel like equal parts time machine, spacecraft, telescope and microscope. Timothy Leary was a fan of “Maz,” and the mind-blowing nature of fungi means that this deceptively delicate, skinny-stemmed strain is very likely just as he knew it back then.

What to Expect on a Mazatapec Trip

With an onset time between an hour and 90 minutes, users start to notice an enhanced richness in their perception of their surroundings, as if noise reduction and glow filters had been applied. Mild body tingles may accompany the classic “mushroom yawns” as you begin to feel stronger effects. Contemplative and easygoing at smaller doses, larger doses may see colours and shapes start to take glorious flight and tender emotions may begin to unfold like the petals of a rose. Heroic dose users report both open-eye visual and auditory hallucinations, and eventually a humbling loss of ego that helps explain why this truly iconic strain has been so profoundly revered for so long.

Shaman’s Basket has Mazatapec mushrooms available in classic dried format and as tea, chocolates, gummies and pre-measured microdose gelcaps.

  • This chart is for general guidance only. A wide range of factors like your metabolism, age, body mass, current medications, tolerance of other substances and even your frame of mind can all have a significant effect on the intensity and duration of your trip, as can the way you choose to consume your shrooms (dried vs tea or edibles).
  • Impatient? Different strains have different onsets, but legions of psychonauts have reported success in accelerating the time of their come-up using the popular “lemon tek” hack of saturating dried shrooms in lemon or lime juice for 20 minutes before consuming; however, the results will likely last about half as long as they would with standard consumption.

The unique nature of the human brain means that everyone’s personal experiences will be different when using psilocybin, which is why for all our strains, especially ones you are trying for the first time, we always suggest waiting at least an hour to 90 minutes before increasing your dosage. Our products are carefully weighed and packaged, but the individual effects and the duration of them will naturally be unique for every person, sometimes despite their tolerance for other substances. For this reason, we also urge new users to avoid alcohol and to stay hydrated, especially if your shroom trip involves outdoor activity or physical movement of any kind. If you’re attempting larger doses or feeling the least bit nervous, make sure you’re in safe surroundings before you start, and consider recruiting a sober, non-judgemental trip-sitter, even just to check in on you from time to time. Trip smart and avoid risks, especially while on holiday: never scuba dive or operate any vehicle, marine vessel or power tools while under the influence of mind-altering substances like psilocybin. If you’re already on medication, please consult with a trusted physician before using any of these products. We strongly advise anyone who is currently pregnant or breastfeeding to temporarily refrain from using these or any magic mushrooms. Everything sold at Shaman’s Basket – and anything containing psilocybin – should be kept far away from minors and pets.
