Transkei psilocybe or the African Transkei Magic Mushrooms (transkei psilocybe, African Transkei), aka South African Transkei (SAT) is the first and one of the only P. Cubensis strain originating out of the continent of Africa. It is unknown who exactly collected the samples, but from our research it shows that the samples were collected in January 2002 at the Wild Coast region of South Africa. It is reported that the mushrooms were found growing directly in dung in the shades of a tree.
Terrence McKenna’s “Stoned Ape Theory” refers to magic mushrooms being the evolutionary catalyst for tripling the human brain size in under two million years. Early humans such as Homo Erectus originated from the continent of Africa before travelling and exploring into Europe and Asia. Transkei psilocybe or African Transkei shrooms may possibly have been one of the mushrooms early Hominids consumed to develop their brains and in turn develop into what we know today as Homo Sapiens.
The transkei psilocybe are well known for their visual effects and moderately high potency. Expect both open eyed and closed eyes visuals with this strain. With higher dosage you can expect mystic experiences and deep thought that may allow you to see things from a new perspective.
After 10-30 minutes of consuming transkei psilocybe 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.
Originating near Durban on South Africa’s Wild Coast, Transkei Cubensis Shrooms are a potent modern strain that produces prominent body sensations and open eye visuals, with a ballet of tracers, dancing lights and geometric shapes that increase at higher doses.
