Malabar Mushrooms aka Malabar Coast Magic Mushrooms (Psilocybe Cubensis Malabar) originates from the Indian coast of Malabar. These shrooms are known to be prolific fruiter and able to grow in warmer climates. In the wild these magic mushrooms were found growing in elephant dung. Our version is grown in organic grains.
Expect Malabar Mushrooms to have an above average potency. The history of magic mushrooms in Indian culture can be traced back to 1500 BC. In the Rigveda, one of four sacred texts part of Hindu and Zoroastrian traditions; a reference to a substance called Soma. In one reference it states: “We have drunk Soma and become immortal; we have attained the light, the Gods discovered.” The exact strain and reference of the Soma has been lost over millennia since its use but it hasn’t stopped many modern-day scholars from coming up with theories to explain its ancient past.
After 10-40 minutes of consuming Malabar magic mushrooms 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.
History of Malabar Magic Mushrooms
Before we get into the history of Malabar magic mushrooms, we have to go back, way back. One of the first pieces of evidence we have of magic mushroom use comes from 1500 BC in ancient India.
From that time, an ancient spiritual text was written, known as the Vedas. In the Vedas, they describe a spiritual substance known as Soma.
The ancient Indians believed that Soma was the food of the gods and bestowed immortality and fantastic hallucinations. Many historians today believe the Soma was actually magic mushrooms.
So, where are we going with this? Well, it turns out that Malabar magic mushrooms come from the Indian coast of Malabar. Legend has it that this amazing strain was first cultured from a pile of elephant dung.
Now we’re not saying that Malabar was the same mushroom that the ancient Indians used. However, because this strain can only be described as a food of the gods—we imagine they had something similar to Malabar.
The Appearance of Malabar Magic Mushrooms
What separates Malabar shrooms from other strains is their enormous size. Malabar mushies have very thick and fleshy stems with relatively small caps.
This strain also has a web-like veil—the fleshy part that covers the bottom of the cap. However, once the mushrooms dry, the veil is usually no longer visible.
This strain also bruises and takes on a blue color much easier than others. If you see that your Malabar magic mushrooms have some blue spots, don’t worry, it’s totally normal.
The bluing comes from harvest and storage, and transport, but it doesn’t adversely affect the mushroom’s potency.
Malabar Magic Mushroom Effects
The best part about Malabar magic mushrooms is their incredible effects. Many users note that Malabar fills their vision with vibrant colors and instills a sense of pure euphoria.
At higher doses, you’ll find yourself in a state of spiritual enlightenment. That may be easier to achieve because Malabar shrooms are highly potent.
Taking Malabar Magic Mushrooms Recreationally
Malabar is an excellent strain for taking recreationally, as long as you stay at a low dose. Malabar mushies will have you feeling totally relaxed and giggly.
As each wave hits you, you’ll sink into feelings of deep euphoria as intense visuals cloud your perception. This is a great strain to take with friends out in nature or at home.
If you’re going to take Malabar magic mushrooms recreationally, then we recommend that you come prepared. Remember that you should always weigh out each dose accurately to make sure no one gets too much.
On top of that, you’ll need to be sure to have a safe space to retreat to. Make sure to bring snacks, water, and music.
Remember, music can help change your internal environment. If you or someone is getting into a bad trip, music can help bring them out of a negative headspace.
Never drive on magic mushrooms, and make sure to only take them once you’ve reached your destination.
Taking Malabar Magic Mushrooms Spiritually
If you’re trying to go on a spiritual journey deep within your consciousness, then Malabar magic mushrooms are for you. Malabar is the perfect strain for getting into a truly mystical experience.
To take a spiritual dose of Malabar shrooms, you’ll need to take a hefty dose of them. But, before you get to that, you need to have done a lot of preparation.
Remember, a spiritual journey is not something that should be taken lightly. That means that you need to do everything you can to make it truly spectacular.
To achieve that, you’ll need to think about two things—set and setting. In tripping terms, set and setting are extremely important.
Setting is your environment or the place you want to have your spiritual trip. You should be in a comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed.
However, some people prefer being out in nature, but it’s up to you. You also need to think about the people who will be around.
You’ll want at least one person to watch you just in case you get into a challenging trip.
Next, you’ll need to think about set—or your mindset. That means you need to think about your current headspace.
You’ll want to have as clear a mind as possible. That means no responsibilities and no significant issues should be on your mind.
Some people will recommend setting some ‘goals’ for your psychedelic experience. However, we believe that you should try not to expect anything and let the mushrooms take you where they want you to go.
How to Dose Malabar Magic Mushrooms
Dosing is crucial because it can make the difference between a recreational or spiritual experience. Depending on what you want to do, you’ll need to dose correctly.
If you’ve dosed any strain of P. cubensis then you probably know what to expect. However, if you’re a beginner, then you can use this handy guide:
One thing you’ll need to keep in mind with Malabar magic mushrooms is that they have a faster onset. That means that you should feel them start working their magic faster than other cubensis strains.
Since Malabar shrooms are a little more potent, you’ll want to start lower than what you usually take. For beginners, start low and work your way up just to be on the safe side.
