The African Transkei Cubensis is a highly potent strain of psilocybin mushroom known for producing an extremely prominent body high and fantastic visuals. The African Transkei originate from South Africa – our first records of them indicate that they were collected in 2002 in Transkei (the Wild Coast region of South Africa.) They were spotted directly growing atop dung under the shade of trees.
Since that time the strain has been isolated and researched extensively. In appearance they are known for their small orange/brown/white button caps and twisting gnarled stems. Unlike many psilocybe cubensis strains the African Transkei have a veil that remains connected to the cap for a very long time sometimes not even tearing meaning its remnants remain on the stem as well as the cap.
The high from the African Transkei is something out of this world. While not regarded as the most spiritually enlightening mushroom the visuals produced from this strain constitute an absolute firework show: a stunning combination of tracers lights and geometric patterns moving and building on one another in a mesmerizing choreography it truly has to be experienced to be appreciated. It is one of the most visually evocative highs you are ever likely to experience.
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 have 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-alteringly observational. At doses over 2 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 activity like dancing and try sipping some honey ginger tea to counteract any possible nausea during the come-up. Do not use if pregnant and do not mix with other drugs or alcohol.
