About Gold Cap Mushrooms
Psilocybe cubensis is a wide spread, large bodied, psychedelic mushroom that can be found in tropical and sub-tropical climates around the world. P. Cubensis produces the chemicals psilocin and psilocybin, which classifies it as one of the psilocybin mushrooms. This mushroom was “discovered” F.S. Earle in Cuba in 1904 as Stropharia cubensis, and later renamed to what it is now known as: Psilocybe cubensis. This species is the largest of all the Psilocybes with equally robust rhizomorphic mycelium. Typically, the caps of the mushroom are chestnut brown to golden sometimes with a white ring around the outside of the cap, which is where it earned the nick-name gold cap mushroom from. Other common names for this mushroom are cubes, cubies, shrooms, magic mushrooms, boomers, and gold tops. This is usually the first psychedelic mushroom people encounter, and is the most commonly available due to it’s ease of indoor cultivation.
