Huautla 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 Mushrooms strain was collected in July of 2001 by an online alias known as Club99. He or she collected the samples of Huautla Mushrooms growing on grass in the pasture land. Surprisingly it was not growing on dung as with other typical mushrooms.
The Huautla Mushrooms 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.

History of Huautla Magic Mushrooms
Huautla magic mushrooms come from a very special place and have a deep connection to ancient magic mushroom ceremonies. That’s because Huautla was picked by someone known as Club99 in Huautla de Jímenez—a small village in the southern state of Oaxaca, Mexico.
The reason why that’s important is that the village was home to a famous shaman named Maria Sabina. Sabina was a curandera, or healer, and performed magic mushroom rituals.
These mushroom rituals have been going on in the area for at least hundreds of years. Sabina had been trained as a shaman using centuries of passed-down expertise.
Before the 1950s, magic mushrooms were mostly unknown in the West. That’s until a man named R. Gordon Wasson traveled to Huautla to meet Sabina and participate in a magic mushroom ceremony.
After Wasson’s incredible trip, he sent back samples of the mushrooms to friends and scientists. From there, magic mushrooms caught on in the Western world, and now the rest is history.
There’s no way of knowing if these Huautla magic mushrooms are the very same Sabina used. However, Huautla shrooms have an exceptional quality to them that makes us think that they are.
The Appearance of Huautla Magic Mushrooms
The way that Huautla magic mushrooms look is unique. That’s because these mushies grow tall, thin, and have a special hemispheric cap.
When dried, they look even smaller and resemble skinny fingers reaching out. However, you may notice that some dried Huautla magic mushrooms have a bluish or greenish discoloration.
These bluish or greenish spots are known as bruises. All P. cubensis strains bruise, and it happens from harvest, transportation, and storage.
Bruising is totally natural and doesn’t affect the potency or the quality of the magic mushroom in any way.
Huautla Magic Mushroom Effects
As we said before, the effect of Huautla magic mushrooms has a shamanistic feel to them. Besides incredible visuals, you’ll feel a unique harmony with everything around you.
These mushrooms are also highly reflective. That means that your thoughts will turn inward as you ponder the meaning of just about everything important to you.
Taking Huautla Magic Mushrooms Recreationally
Huautla shrooms are not super potent, which makes them a great candidate for taking them recreationally. As we said, these magic mushrooms will help you connect with the people and the world around you.
First, a wave of euphoria will wash over you as you’re transported into a world of openness. Soft yet wonderful hallucinations will hit your vision as you relax into a completely inward state.
However, to get the most out of them, you’ll need to take them responsibly. Remember to never drive a vehicle after taking a dose of magic mushrooms.
Taking Huautla Magic Mushrooms Spiritually
Huautla magic mushrooms were meant to be taken in a spiritual context. After all, these may have been the go-to mushroom for famous healers and shamans.
Taking a hefty dose of Huautla magic mushrooms will bring you into another realm of consciousness. Once there, you’ll witness beautiful visuals and feel a deep sense of spirituality.
However, to get there, you’ll need to take them as seriously as the shamans do. That means that you need to respect the magic mushrooms and make certain preparations.
Those preparations boil down to a concept known as set and setting. Set and setting means you need to think about your mental state and your environment before embarking on a psychedelic journey.
You’ll want to clear your schedule and be in a place comfortable, familiar, and relaxed. Make sure that you have at least one person to act as a trip sitter.
A trip sitter can look after you and help you get through any challenging parts of a trip. You’ll also want to keep your head as clear as possible.
That means having no responsibilities and no major worries as you go on your trip. Once you’ve made the proper preparations, you’ll be ready for a life-changing journey with Huautla magic mushrooms.
How to Dose Huautla Magic Mushrooms
Huautla magic mushrooms have about an average potency compared to other P. cubensis strains. That makes it great for beginners who don’t want to overdo it.
At the same time, Huautla shrooms are great for experienced psychonauts because they’ll know exactly how much to dose. However, if you’ve never dosed out any strain of P. cubensis before, then you can follow this general guideline:
- .25 grams (g) for a threshold dose (should feel something)
- .25-1g for a light dose (recreational dose)
- 1-2.5g for a medium dose (recreational dose)
- 5-5g for a strong dose (recreational to spiritual dose)
- 5g+ for a heavy dose (spiritual dose)
Remember, everyone is different and has a different dose. That means if you’re a beginner, then you’ll want to start low and go slow.
How to Take Huautla Magic Mushrooms
Taking Huautla magic mushrooms is easy peasy. Some of our favorite methods are:
