The Treasure Coast magic mushroom strain was first collected on the Southern Florida Gulf Coast, and was popularized by the mysterious "Mr. G" (Mr. G is a commonly known shroom cultivator). This mushroom strain has become favoured by many cultivators for its fast colonization speed, potency, and aesthetic characteristics.
This strain elicits the "classic" Psilocybe effects, including euphoria, visual stimulation, sensory enhancement/synesthesia, deep introspection, amplified emotion, and often a quite 'mystical' or "noetic" quality. This makes it a versatile strain, suitable for either therapeutic or recreational use.
Its visual characteristics consist of medium/large fruiting bodies with thick, long, stalks and a rounded golden brownish cap. It's also known for frequently occuring albino/leucystic mutations which result in pale white caps. Treasure Coast mycelium is exceptionally fast-colonizing, rhizomorphic, and relatively resistant to contamination. It's fruits are reported to be above-average potency, and it is a moderate-yeilding strain.
