Penis Envy Mushrooms For Sale

Roger Rabbit — an infamous amateur mycologist and respected member of the online Shroomery community is famous for saying, “Cubes are cubes, with the exception of Penis Envy Mushrooms.”

Penis Envy is just one of several hundred strains within the greater Psilocybe cubensis species. And P. cubensis is just one of nearly 200 species of psychoactive fungi.

The most notable characteristic of the Penis Envy mushroom is its exceptional potency. Samples of this mushroom have shown combined psilocybin and psilocin concentrations as high as 2.90% (3–6 times more potent than the average Psilocybe cubensis). Penis envy mushrooms effects

Only one sample from a strain called Tidal Wave had higher psilocybin levels than Penis Envy (3.82% total tryptamines). Tidal Wave itself is a cross between B+ and Penis Envy genetics. However, the average potency for Tidal Wave is much lower — around 1.17%.

Another distinction of this strain is its notable phallic shape. The cap on Penis Envy mushrooms remains close to the stem, and the stem is thicker than average — making the shrooms look a lot like a circumcised penis. Dried penis envy mushrooms

Today, dozens of variations and offshoots are derived from the original Penis Envy cultivar.


There’s a surprising degree of mystery and controversy surrounding the origins of this magical mushroom strain.

Many believe the original sample of Penis Envy was taken by Terence McKenna on his trip to the Colombian Amazon in the early 1970s with his brother, Dennis McKenna. Blue penis envy mushrooms

The original story, as reported by Hamilton Morris (a renowned psychedelic journalist and host of Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia), was that a spore print of the mushroom somehow made its way from McKenna’s collection to another infamous mycologist by the name of Steven Pollock. Pollock then further developed the strain into the Penis Envy we know and love today. It was Morris’ reporting of the mushroom, along with mentions of its characteristically strong psychoactive properties, that has led to the widespread popularity of this mushroom today.

Here’s where the story gets interesting — Pollock died under extremely mysterious conditions. He was reportedly shot in the head and robbed in his San Antonio pharmacy in 1981. Morris reported in Harper’s Magazine that he was able to get his hands on a tape recording involving two alleged police officers who were in some way involved with Pollock’s murder.

Two suspects were eventually named in the murder and suggested to be methamphetamine with people with drug abuse  who were supposedly customers of Pollock — but the charges were dropped, and all evidence in the case was destroyed for unknown reasons. How strong are penis envy mushrooms

After his death, officers discovered 1,753 jars of psychoactive fungi growing in his Pollock’s greenhouse — all of which were destroyed. Somehow, after Pollock’s death, a sample of the Penis Envy strain made its way to another mycologist in Washington named Rich Gee (Richard Guitierrez). Gee successfully cloned the mushroom and began distributing the spores to other growers around the United States. Today, Penis Envy is widely available from most spore vendors in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Penis envy mushrooms dosage

With all of that said, the authenticity of this story isn’t clear.

A follow-up of the original reporting done by Morris involving an interview with Rich Gee himself suggests that Gee came in possession of the original sample of Penis Envy spores not through Steven Pollock but through one of the co-authors of Gee’s book How to Identify and Grow Psilocybin Mushrooms, Jules Stevens. Stevens reportedly got the sample from another friend who obtained it from McKenna. Gee then used selective breeding techniques to make the strain stronger by only propagating samples that showed the strongest blueing reaction (an indicator of psilocybin content in magic mushrooms).

Gee also credits the name of the strain to an experience with a group of strippers in 1977. Upon seeing the mushrooms, which Gee was planning to name “Amazons,” the strippers remarked they looked like “donkey dongs.” Gee says he responded by asking, “do you have penis envy?” Where do penis envy mushrooms grow

Of course, none of this can be verified. While Gee is a skilled mycologist with plenty of experience with the Penis Envy mushroom (and other strains), some of Gee’s other claims make his reports unreliable (in the same interview, Gee claims to have telekinetic powers and the ability to communicate with animals).

Penis Envy Variations & Genetic Brothers

Penis Envy has been around for decades and has been used as the starting sample for a variety of other mushroom strains — many of which share the exceptional potency of the original Penis Envy sample they were derived from. What do penis envy mushrooms look like

1. Penis Envy #6

Penis Envy #6 (PE6) is a cross between Penis Envy and the Texas strain. The growth patterns of this mushroom resemble PE, but have larger caps and slightly lower potency. Where do penis envy mushrooms grow

The average tryptamine concentration for this strain is around 0.71%.

2. Penis Envy Uncut

Penis Envy Uncut (PEU) — AKA Uncut Penis Envy — are phenotypically similar to PE and have similar potency. The distinction of this strain comes from the tendency for mature mushrooms to maintain an intact veil (a thin covering that protects the spore-producing gills of the mushroom until the shroom is mature).

3. Albino Penis Envy

Albino Penis Envy (APE) is a genetically isolated, non-pigmented strain of the popular Penis Envy mushroom. The lack of pigment gives this mushroom a bright white appearance. How long do penis envy mushrooms last?

This strain is popular for experienced mushroom growers for its unique appearance and strong potency. Still, it isn’t recommended for beginners as it’s reportedly more prone to aborts (mushrooms that start forming but stop before reaching maturity) than the original PE strain.

4. Melmac

The origin of Melmac isn’t clear, but it’s widely reported to be a genetic offshoot from the original Penis Envy strain. It boasts similar potency but faster colonization speed. Some sources claim the Melmac strain is the same strain as the Homestead strain. Why are they called penis envy mushrooms

5. Tidal Wave

In the 2021 Psilocybin Cup, a Tidal Wave sample was reportedly the only submission with a higher tryptamine and psilocybin content than Penis Envy. Unsurprisingly, Tidal Wave is thought to be a genetic progeny of Penis Envy and B+ strain.

The average potency for most Tidal Wave mushrooms is much less than this, however — across 9 separate samples the average tryptamine potency is listed at 1.17%. where to buy penis envy mushrooms

B+ is another exceptionally strong strain that’s suggested to be a cross between Psilocybe cubensis and Psilocybe azurescens (contested).

Penis Envy Mushrooms Effects and Characteristics

As with all psilocybin-containing mushrooms, the effects of Penis Envy can be broadly considered similar to any other magic mushroom. Despite users anecdotally reporting different subjective effects of different varieties, there’s not yet enough data to link subjective psychedelic experiences to different varieties, especially with factors such as set and setting also playing a crucial role.

However, one factor that does seem to be justified by evidence is Penis Envy’s increased potency. When looking at data gathered by Oakland Hyphae in their Psilocybin Cup, the average potency of Penis Envy varieties may be around 50 to 100 percent stronger than your average Psilocybe cubensis variety. Yet, as with other cultivated magic mushrooms, this potency can vary considerably—likely due to factors such as growing conditions and post-harvest storage methods.

How to Grow Penis Envy Mushrooms

One downside—and perhaps the only downside—to Penis Envy mushrooms is that they are one of the most difficult cubensis varieties to cultivate. This is because of their physical characteristics, like the lack of a velum to hold in spores until the mushroom is mature, which results in ineffective sporulation—therefore a cultivator would need quite a few Penis Envy mushrooms in order to collect enough spores to produce a viable spore syringe.

Furthermore, due to the fact that this genetic line has been artificially selected, and would not have survived in nature, Penis Envy mushrooms are also less resistant to contamination. They also take about 25 percent longer to colonize, have a pin rate that is about half that of other Psilocybe cubensis varieties, and need specialized conditions for the incubation stage (the addition of a casing layer and a substrate with higher moisture content).

Apart from these characteristics—and any other Psilocybe cubensis variety—Penis Envy is not particularly fussy and will happily grow on a variety of bulk substrates such as coir and manure, as well as grains such as rye, popcorn, and millet. Penis Envy will also grow in PF Tek jars or Uncle Ben’s rice bags.

An additional word of caution: It’s important to consider that Penis Envy cultivation is illegal in many areas. Cultivation of psilocybin mushrooms may result in criminal penalties for those who live outside of decriminalized regions. Always familiarize yourself with laws in your region before cultivating and engaging with psilocybin mushrooms.

Penis Envy Cultivation Terminology

As with any hobby or field of study, mushroom cultivation has its own vernacular. The majority of this vernacular is the same across most mushroom species—although different species feature distinct anatomical differences. The following terms and phrases are useful to know when cultivating mushrooms:

Penis Envy Pins

To start, there’s nothing special to say about Penis Envy pins. The term “pins” is not unique to Penis Envy mushrooms—it’s an abbreviation of the term “pinhead,” which cultivators use to describe the small and earliest visible mushroom formations.

Penis Envy Blobs

One particular quirk of Penis Envy is its tendency to grow “blobs” instead of pins as the mushrooms first begin to appear. Blobs are malformed bits of mushroom tissue. Blobbing tends to happen more commonly in early flushes. Many growers have had success with using a casing layer to prevent blobs from emerging. However, the blobs themselves are not harmful and can actually be quite potent, so fret not: They’re more of an aesthetic problem than a grow-stopper.

Penis Envy Spores

Penis Envy is unique as each mature mushroom cap produces very few spores. Although prints can is make, these tend to be very faint resulting in weak spore syringes. Growers can also use swabs to transfer spores directly from the mushrooms to sterile agar plates, then start their grow project from there. Penis Envy spores are currently legal to purchase for microscope purposes in many regions. But, as mention above, cultivation is only decriminalize in select locations

When To Harvest Penis Envy Mushrooms

Like all Psilocybe cubensis varieties, the best time to harvest Penis Envy is as the veil breaks. Though this is traditionally done to prevent the mushroom caps from dropping spores all over your growing area, this may be less of a problem with Penis Envy which produces fewer spores than other varieties. As Penis Envy also has a much smaller gill area than other Psilocybe cubensis so spotting when the veil is about to break might take a keen eye.

Final Thoughts: Penis Envy Mushroom Strain

Penis Envy is one of the most popular mushroom strains in the world, and for a good reason — it’s stronger than most strains you’ll find, sometimes by as much as 100%. They also physically look like a penis, with small caps remaining close to a thick (sometimes quite long) stem.

The origins of this mushroom are mysterious and hotly debated. Still, the current theory is that it came from a sample of Terence McKenna’s stock obtained from the Colombian Amazon, which either Rich Gee or Steven Pollock later developed.

You can find spores for Penis Envy mushrooms from most, if not all, the major spore vendors in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
