When it comes to the history of Colombian Psilocybe Cubensis it was quite common to see this being used by the natives in Central and South America even before the arrival of Spanish conquistadors.  The arrival of the Spanish colonizers brought a ban on the recreational and religious usage of this mushroom.  The name of the mushroom comes from the Greek word meaning bald head because this is how this species looks like.  It contains a yellow head that is about 1 to 8 centimeters in width and a stem that is about 4 to 5 centimeters.  Aside from central and South America the mushroom can also be seen in South East Asia as well.

The main active substances in the mushroom consists of a couple of potent hallucinogenic alkaloids namely psilocybine and psilocine.  The amount of the primary ingredient psilocine varies depending on the type of mushroom species.  When we talk about the effects of this mushroom it is actually quite similar to dropping acid but frankly speaking the effects are considered about two hundred times less powerful than that of lysergic acid diethylamide and have a shorter duration as well.  This makes the mushroom ideal for casual first timers to the magic mushroom experience.
