The Costa Rican magic mushroom is another favorite from the Central America region. This beautiful Psilocybe cubensis variety was found in the foothills surrounding Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica, at approximately 1000 to 1200 feet of elevation. Costa Rican Mushroom (Psilocybe cubensis Costa Rica) is a strain found in the foothills surrounding the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica. These mushrooms grow naturally in the wild and love warm, humid tropical climate and grow at 1000-1200 ft. above sea-level. These sacred mushrooms have been growing at the base of a highly active 7000-year-old volcano for many millennia. Legend has it that they have been used by the local indigenous people since the beginning of time. Costa Rica is a magical lush kingdom and we are glad to have a sacred mushroom from this region of the world.

SPORES: This Costa Rican mushie’s spores are dark purplish brown in colour, subellipsoid on four-spored basidia.

GENERAL DOSAGE GUIDE:
Microdose – 0.1g – 0.3g
Beginner – 0.3g – 1g
Average – 1g – 2.5g
Experienced – 2.5g – 3.5g+
Effects begin between 10 to 40 minutes after ingestion and can last between 3 and 6 hours, depending on the dose and the individual. Like all tryptamines, psilocybes often cause what has been called “the mushroom yawns” which increase markedly as one begins to peak, however, the feeling in the rest of the body is energetic, not tired. Users can expect a wide variety of possible effects and sensations, from the mystical, euphoric and revelatory to the hyperspatial and mind-altering observational. At doses over 3 grams, some users report experiencing warping of the visual field, and Dali-esque melting objects, and other possible effects include time distortion, hallucinations both when eyes are closed or open, and synesthesia (i.e. “seeing” sounds and “feeling” colours). Remember to stay hydrated, especially if you’re outdoors or doing activities like dancing, and try sipping some honey ginger tea to counteract any possible nausea during the come-up.

Taking Costa Rican Magic Mushrooms Spiritually
If you’re looking to reach the farthest depths of your mind, then Costa Rican magic mushrooms can show you the way. That’s because, with enough Costa Rican magic mushrooms, you can experience something mystical.
However, before you embark on a spiritual magic mushroom journey, you need to make certain physical and mental preparations. You need to become familiar with a concept known as set and setting.
Set means that you need to think about your mindset. More specifically, you need to be in the right place mentally for a psychedelic journey.
Getting in the right headspace requires you to have cleared your schedule and have no obligations for the day. You should also not have any big life events or major worries in your head before embarking on a spiritual trip.
Of course, we can’t always be in the best state of mind before a psychedelic experience. However, you should try your best to have as clear a mind as possible for the best result.
Next, you need to think about the setting, which is your physical environment. The physical environment should be comfortable, calm, and relaxing.It can be in a home or out in nature—as long as it’s familiar to you. Also, remember that people are part of the setting.
It’s best to have as few people around as possible because it could end up being distracting. However, you’ll want at least one person around to act as a trip sitter—someone who can look after you during your trip.
