Enigma mushrooms, also known as Enigma Cubensis, have been a topic of interest in the world of psychedelics for quite some time. With its weird brain/coral-like shape, it’s hard to tell what it exactly is.
However, their mysterious nature has left many enthusiasts wondering about their origins, properties, and effects. We will delve into the basics of Enigma mushrooms and what makes them one of the most unique variants of Psilocybe cubensis.
What We Cover
Where did Enigma Mushrooms come from?
Enigma mushrooms have a relatively short history compared to other magic mushrooms. They were discovered in the early 2000s through lab cloning making it highly unique compared to different strains solely due the fact that it is a mutation.
Growers noticed an unusual growth pattern on batches of Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. Instead of growing typical mushroom caps, the mushrooms developed into dense, coral-like blobs. The name quickly emerged out of this strange and weird phenomenon.
The Enigma strain quickly gained popularity among growers and psychedelic enthusiasts due to its unusual appearance and reported potency. However, Enigma mushrooms were initially difficult to obtain and were mainly available through underground networks and exclusive grower groups.
Over time, the secrets behind Enigma mushrooms became more widely known, and the strain began to appear in online marketplaces and at psychedelic gatherings. Today, Enigma mushrooms are one of the more sought-after strains of magic mushrooms, known for their unique appearance and reported potency.
What makes Enigma Mushrooms Different?
Firstly, it’s worth noting that Enigma Cubensis is not a distinct mushroom species but rather a mutated form of Psilocybe Cubensis. This mutation is referred to as the “blob mutation” and is responsible for the unusual characteristics of Enigma mushrooms. The most prominent feature of this mutation is that Enigma mushrooms do not produce spores. Instead, they require propagation through cloning, which is still considered uncommon even in modern times.
The lack of spore production in Enigma mushrooms is compensated for by their unique appearance. These mushrooms have a distinct look that sets them apart from other Psilocybe cubensis varieties. They are typically larger and thicker than other strains, and their caps are more domed with a smooth surface. The stems of Enigma mushrooms are often thicker as well, giving them a robust and sturdy appearance.
Despite their distinct appearance, little is known about the effects of Enigma mushrooms compared to other Psilocybe cubensis strains. Enigma mushrooms are still relatively rare and not as widely available as other varieties. However, anecdotal reports suggest that Enigma mushrooms are more potent than other strains of Psilocybe cubensis (reportedly 3 -5X Stronger). The lack of spore production and the need for cloning may also play a role in their rarity and limited availability.
Why are Enigma Mushrooms more Potent?
The potency of Enigma mushrooms compared to other strains of Psilocybe cubensis is still a topic of debate and research. However, some anecdotal reports suggest that Enigma mushrooms may be more potent than other strains. There are several possible reasons why this may be the case.
The lack of spore production in Enigma mushrooms may play a role in their increased potency. Spores are responsible for the reproduction of the mushroom and do not contain the active compounds that produce psychedelic effects. By redirecting energy away from spore production, Enigma mushrooms may have a higher concentration of active compounds compared to other strains.
Enigma mushrooms may have different ratios of active compounds, such as psilocybin and psilocin, compared to other strains. Psilocybin is converted into psilocin in the body, which is responsible for the psychedelic effects. The ratio of these two compounds may affect the intensity and duration of the psychedelic experience.
Lastly, environmental factors and growing conditions may also play a role in the potency of Enigma mushrooms. However, more research is needed to understand the specific factors that contribute to the potency of Enigma mushrooms.
Different types of Enigma Mushrooms Mutations
Since Enigma mushrooms are mutation of parent and sub strains, there have been efforts to create totally new strains. Penis Envy, Golden Teachers, and Tidal Wave (hybrid of penis envy and B+) all have been popularized as being an easy to cultivate strain that has high potency and reliability. Through the years of cultivation, harvesting and creating mutations have become easier allowing for growers to slowly introduce other strains into the mutation process. These mutations can take on the characteristics of the main strain but have either amplified/prolonged effects.
Penis Envy, known for its potency and strength can have an Enigma strain that is even more potent but maintain the time it is active. This opens the doors for future strains to be custom curated and genetically modified to have more desirable outcomes. The difficulty comes from the constant workshopping of growers trying to create the ripe conditions for the mutations to occur.
Trip Effects of Enigma Mushrooms
Enigma’s trip effects are similar to those of other P. cubensis strains, with some users claiming that different strains produce distinct trips, while others argue that the only difference between strains is potency. There is no clear resolution to this debate, but there are no claims that Enigma produces unusual trip effects; it is simply a novelty product due to its bizarre shape.
Like other psilocybin trips, Enigma’s trip usually involves altered mood, perception, and thought patterns. The alteration of perception, or hallucinations, tends to garner the most attention from non-users who often refer to psilocybin as a hallucinogen. However, this effect is dose-dependent, and low doses may only lead to altered mood and thought patterns without hallucinations. Larger doses may cause weird sensations, but it’s only at high doses that hallucinations can significantly challenge reality.
Psychonauts are more interested in the alteration of thought patterns and mood, which can lead to important insights and even life-changing experiences. Mood alteration typically includes euphoria and a sense of connection, although extreme anxiety can also occur. Psilocybin tends to deepen and intensify whatever emotional state the user has going into the experience, making it crucial to maintain a relaxed and positive mental state and safe and comfortable surroundings.
In addition to high or tripping effects, psilocybin can also cause problems with balance, coordination, nausea, and vomiting. Although psilocybin is one of the safest ways to alter the mind, it’s not entirely risk-free, and it’s important to learn and practice safety procedures and never trip alone.
