Burma mushrooms (Psilocybe Cubensis, Leucistic Burma) is a new and upcoming shrooms strain made popular in recent years. Leucistic means the loss of colour pigmentation; meaning this Burmese strain has lost its golden colors and appears to be like an albino strain. Unlike true albino strains, the burma mushrooms still has brown spores. As the name describes, this strain originates from the country of Burma, now called Myanmar.
This mushroom strain has been very popular amongst the online mycology community as its proven to be a prolific fruiter which yields greats results for growers. The spores originate from an online mycologist who goes by the name BAS. The origin story of the Burma strain dates back to the 90s when John W. Allen, a famous Ethno-mycologist who received the spores from one of his students. We think it’s pretty amazing that the online mycology community continues to honor the original strain yet works to improve or develop new exciting strains such as the Leucistic Burma.
The Burma mushrooms strain is known to be one of the stronger shrooms strains. We wouldn’t say it’s as strong as the Penis Envy strain, but you can expect more potency compared to the average Psilocybe Cubensis strain. Our staff report a mix of effects from consuming the Leucistic Burma strain, but you can expect classic magic mushroom effects such as feeling transcendence and unity with the world. This strain can be enjoyed alone for healing or together with friends for good-old fun.
After 10-30 minutes of consuming Leucistic Burma Strain shrooms you will feel your mood enhanced with euphoria and excitement. Depending on dosage you will experience mild to intense visual enhancements. Things may seem like they are breathing, the nature around you will feel more alive and you will find yourself in introspective thought. Music and art will look and feel different and you will have a higher appreciation and you may relate the music or art to yourself on a more personal level. The most common museum dose (0.5-1.5g) and moderate dose (2-3.5g) should provide you with a 3-6 hour trip. Please read our FAQ section for more details.
Psilocybe cubensis is the best-known of the “magic” mushroom species, probably at least in part because it’s easy to cultivate—there are a great many distinct cultivated strains, each with its own reputation and its own creative-sounding name. Burma mushrooms[i] are one of these Psilocybe cubensis strains. They are known for their potency and their fast, aggressive growth. The name reflects that fact that the strain was originally collected in the country of Burma. P. cubensis is a variable species, so many strains are simply wild variations that have been bred for consistent performance.
P. cubensis owes its “magic” effects primarily to psilocybin, a natural substance that works as a relatively safe hallucinogenic and mood-altering drug. Technically speaking, it’s a toxin that many of its human “victims” happen to like! The concentration of psilocybin varies from one strain to another, meaning that different strains have different dosage guidelines. Many people also claim that trip experiences from the different strains vary qualitatively. It’s hard to be sure, since trips vary for all sorts of reasons, including the biochemistry and even current mood of the user—so whether the identity of the strain is also a factor is difficult to say.
There are people who really like Burma mushrooms, though.
Two caveats before we get too far into this article:
First, psilocybin is only relatively safe. It’s not risk-free, and bad results are possible. By learning and following certain safety procedures, the chance of a good experience can be maximized.
Second, psilocybin is extremely illegal in most jurisdictions. Would-be users need to understand the law in their area and not use anything in this article in a way that leads to prison.
In general, psilocybin causes changes in mood, changes in thought-pattern, and, at higher doses, hallucinations. Less-enjoyable effects commonly include excessive yawning, nausea, and sometimes even vomiting. Severe reactions, such as convulsions, are very rare, but they can occur. Psilocybin has shown medicinal potential, and many people use mushrooms to self-treat a wide variety of conditions, from migraine headaches to anxiety. Unfortunately, the scientific research on these claims is still in its infancy, in part because of the legal barriers to clinical study.
“Mood changes” mean, ideally, euphoria and a feeling of connectedness, though some people instead experience anxiety—which can be intense and disturbing. Some users explain the radically different possible effects by saying that psilocybin simply enhances whatever the user was already feeling. This is one reason why proper mental preparation for the experience, together with a safe and enjoyable setting, are so important
“Changes in thought-pattern” often includes personal and spiritual insight.
Burma mushrooms[ii] are generally said to produce an intense and enjoyable experience, but with little of the insight encouraged by other strains.
Burma is known as a very potent strain, meaning that a typical-sized dose will have a stronger effect.
Growing Burma Mushrooms
Burma is not an especially picky strain. Any mushroom growing method normally used with P. cubensis will work. Several different brands of grow-kits are available for the Burma strain, or growers can build their own set-ups from scratch (See: PF Tek, Monotub Tek, Shotgun Fruiting Chamber) and start with spores.
Burma[iii] is generally considered a very fast-growing strain, with a colonization time of only days. However, the biggest influence on how quickly spores germinate and how quickly they grow may not be the strain but rather the age and health of the spores. The important thing is for growers to get good spores no matter what strain they use.
It’s possible to calculate a rough estimate[iv] for proper P. cubensis dosage, based on the strain, whether the mushrooms are fresh or dried, and what kind of experience the users want—from microdosing on up to a “heroic dose.” But even within a strain potency can vary, and some people are more sensitive to psilocybin than others. So dosage guidelines can only ever be just that, guidelines. Burma simply has a smaller starting point than most other P. cubensis strains.
It’s best to err on the side of a dose that is too small, rather than too large, since unpleasant side effects are more likely at higher doses.
Growing Vs. Buying Burma Mushrooms
The decision to buy mushrooms verses grow them depends on careful consideration of pluses and minuses on each side—there is no one right answer.
Growing at home is cheaper, on a per-dose basis, by far[v]. The common substrate materials, such as bird seed, popcorn, or other grains, are cheap and easily available. Spores must be purchased, but they only need to be purchased once; the grower can leave a few mushrooms to mature, then collect spores to start the next grow. But while many people enjoy growing mushrooms, not everybody wants a large supply of just a few strains, and not everybody wants to wait several weeks to get their product. Beginners might not even know if they’ll like mushrooms, while experienced users might want to try a different strain every week. So for some people, the greater cost of buying mushrooms is worth it.
Another issue is quality[vi], one that definitely leans towards home-grown. It’s not that growing at home always results in higher quality, it’s that the grower knows what they’re getting and can take steps to make the product as good as possible. But since buying mushrooms is illegal in most jurisdictions, the buyer has no recourse if the seller does something wrong.
The final issue is legal risk[vii].
In many places, buying psilocybin mushrooms is illegal, but buying the spores of these mushrooms is not—the spores don’t contain psilocybin (be aware, though that some jurisdictions have closed this loophole, making spores illegal, too). So it’s possible to buy everything needed for a grow without breaking the law. Letting the spores germinate is a crime, but no accomplice need know about it.
On the other hand, if a grower does get caught, the legal consequences can be severe, and producing a large supply at home means having illegal material on hand more or less constantly, increasing the risk of getting caught.
In some areas, possession of small amounts of psilocybin mushroom for personal use has been decriminalized, in which case buying small amounts (as opposed to growing large amounts) is certainly the better option.
Our Burma mushrooms spore syringe microscopy kit includes 10 ml of authentic spores in a syringe, individually packaged, with a sterile needle included. Burma strain sales online will be declined to Idaho, Georgia, and California.
Spores are intended ONLY for microscopy and taxonomy purposes. The images shown are informational only and originate from other cultivators and labs outside the USA. Cultivation is illegal in many countries including the United States. Customers can check the magic mushroom legal states in this article. The purpose of this site is not to grow psilocybin mushrooms or Burma magic mushrooms, but is for spores research and examination.
Burma, or as you might know it, Myanmar, is a beautiful country in Southeastern Asia, a region of the world known for producing plenty of our favorite spore strains like KSSS and Pink Buffalo. Get ready to add another favorite to that list, because our authentic Burma psilocybin mushroom spore strain is ready for you to order and enjoy under the microscope!
Even with the great diversity of choice for Asian spore strains, researchers and taxonomists have been flocking to this strain thanks to several of its unique characteristics. Let’s take a moment to explore what makes our Burma/Myanmar spore strain so popular:
An Authentic Eastern Psilocybin Mushroom Spore Experience
Under the microscope, at-home scientists can expect to see fascinating spores that would, in the wild, mature into a fast-growing and potent strain of psilocybin mushroom. While this strain doesn’t grow quite as quickly or get as big as, say, the popular and aggressive Creeper spore strain would in the wild, mycologists have observed it growing fairly quickly comparative to other strains. The real selling point here for amateur microscopists is the potent learning opportunity to be had when observing these premium spores under a microscope!
Discovered by the same individual who originally found the Pink Buffalo psilocybin mushroom spore strain, writer and mushroom expert John Allen, these are genuine Burmese spores originally from Myanmar. See what John had to say about this strain in our interview with him.
For taxonomists who want to see what spores look like in that part of the world, they can buy spores online from our site and have a great opportunity and a wonderful addition to any serious microscopist’s collection.
Better yet, they’re easy enough to study compared to some of the other Asian spores. While we wouldn’t classify these to be quite as simple to study as, say, Golden Teacher spores, they don’t present any unique challenges you shouldn’t be prepared for.
