1. Psilocybe cubensis

Psilocybe cubensis

The easiest and most powerful mushroom strain is the Psilocybe cubensis. You might have tasted the mushroom once or many times in your life without knowing what it was. The magic mushroom is perfect for selective home cultivation, which makes the growing of these indoor strains highly successful. There are up to 60 strains of Psilocybe cubensis including B+, Golden Teachers, Pink Buffalo, and Penis Envy Mushrooms.

During a clinical analysis of P. cubensis on people with mental problems, some patients received synthetic Psilocybin and stayed in an isolated area. These individuals had only a small amount of the plant rather than the entire mushroom. With this, it is not easy to know about any successful data that was collected when comparing the differences between strains of psychedelic mushrooms in the treatment of mental disorders.

2. Albino Goldies

Albino Goldies is a psychedelic mushroom strain that came into existence by crossing popular strains of Albino A+ and Golden Teachers. The result is an amazing magic mushroom strain that displays the dominant sides of each parent in the unique experience and appearance they provide. They are strains of P.cubensis, but when compared to others, their physical appearance is different as they have picturesque bright yellow caps with long stems.

It is also said that beginners will find this strain easy to grow at home due to their generous fruition. Albino Goldies are magic mushrooms with high resilience that combine a strong Golden Teacher and a potent Albino A+ to make an even stronger effect and deeper experience that can control the mind and body.

3. Stargazer

While it is true that you can identify many kinds of cubensis strains in the wild, the ones you grow indoors are more potent. However, P. cubensis can grow well in Central America, Southern America, and Mexico. They grow excellently in places like India, Australia, Cuba, and Southeast Asia.

Their natural growing area is the dung, and they are sometimes referred to as ‘Inca Stargazer’ because of their effect and where they first discovered them near the ruins of the Inca, somewhere in the Peru mountains. However, this might just be one of those tales about the plant. Most people are factious about creating fictional details of the strain and unfortunately experts have nothing to say about them.

Since it is a common strain that you can grow at home, you can also market them as they are an excellent fruiter. Therefore beginners can take advantage of cultivating them. For the features of Stargazer, it would be best if you ask a home grower to tell you about this strain as they know every detail about the ambiguous magic mushroom.

4. B+

B+ Strain

B+ is a slightly popular mushroom strain even though it is one of the strongest varieties recommended to beginners who desire to grow their magic mushroom at home. They can scale through a large line of growing situations and other rookie errors even if a grower is inexperienced.

When growing a decent B+ fruiting strain, their smooth experience can help you do it better than growing other strains like the Golden Teachers. The physical features of B+ might vary depending on their peculiarity, but, they have huge bright-gold caps and a significant white stem that strikes a blue hue on handling.

5. Psilocybe azurescens

People discovered azurescens on the West coast of the Pacific of America. They are also called Flying saucers and they have spread through Washington DC and California. They also say that azurescens cluster in the Columbia River delta region in Oregon due to their preference to stay in sandy soil profiles, such as near the seas and dunes, on the loose, sea grasses, and decaying woods.

Compared to many psilocybin strains, P. azurescens are resistant to certain temperatures, ranging between 16°C to 24°C. These climate characteristics make them easy for home growers to cultivate in outdoor environments, especially in Europe and America. The reason why people might not like these magic mushrooms is because they have a strong bitter taste.

6.Psilocybe zapotecorum

Psilocybe zapotecorum magic mushrooms are legendary Mexican strains with ancient traditional use. Their name comes from the Zapotec native community of Oaxaca. According to a man called Gaston Guzman, this psychedelic strain has more ancient ceramic authority, revealed in Mexico.

According to the Zapotec translation, P. zapotecorum coined as Badao Zoo, Bado, and Badao, stands for drunk god, drunk mushroom, drunk mushroom, or possibly, drunk god. In 1983, Guzman reported that people can find the strain growing naturally in dried brick Zapotec homes.

7.Psilocybe tampanensis

Psilocybin tampanensis is a psychedelic mushroom strain that develops truffles (also known as sclerotia) with potent psilocybin content. Other names people call them are Philosopher’s stone, psilocybin truffles, or Magic Truffles. In the right condition, P. amanuensis can grow into tiny mushroom fruits with yellow-brown conical caps. Most home growers cultivate their sclerotia underground and eat them. They contain an average percentage of 0.32 psilocin and 0.68 psilocybin.

Even though people first found out about strains of Psilocybin tampanensis in 1977 in the regions of Tampa, Florida, the strain is not easy to trace in sunshine regions since that time. You might not even find them in the wild, but home growers grow them because they are easy to manage.


While most psilocybin grows in the wild, others are cultivated at home. Different strains produce similar or slightly different effects depending on their dominant hybrid or parent characteristics. Before using magic mushrooms, make sure you understand the effects of your favorite psychedelic substance.
