The Menace Psilocybe Cubensis variety first identified on cow dung at a farm in Northwest Texas, but the spores that began our Menace Cubensis cultures were actually acquired through an online mushroom forum. Spores Lab reached out to the Canadian grower who had posted some absolutely beautiful photos of his fruits on this forum, and inquired about getting the genetic. A trade was worked out, and since receiving the genetic in late 2020 we have performed further isolation, selecting for fast colonization, large fruiting bodies, and dense pinset.
The Menace magic mushroom strain is one of the more rare varieties that we offer, and there isn't a ton of feedback online regarding this strain, but from our testing we can confirm it is a potent, visually stimulating, and "clean" experience.
The physical characteristics of this strain typically include thick, dense stems and large golden reddish to golden brown caps, often split at the margins due to their massive size. This strain has above average potency, gets great yield, has fast-colonizing, rhizomorphic mycelium, and often produces quite large fruiting bodies! It's all around one of best strains we offer.
Cap: 100-200+ mm in diameter, convex to broadly convex to plane at maturity. Reddish cinnamon brown maturing to golden brown to light yellow. Surface dry with pronounced and persistent remnants of universal veil on cap (spots). Flesh white soon bruising bluish green.
Stem: 125-200+ mm in length, yellowish white. Flesh bruising bluish green where injured. Persistent membranous annulus (ring) from partial veil that becomes dusted with purple brown spores at maturity.
Gills: Attachment adnate to adnexed. Grayish coloration in young fruit bodies becoming nearly black in maturity.
Spores: Dark purplish brown, subellipsoid on 4-spored basidia
