The PESA strain is a topic of intrigue among mycologists. It is also fascinating to psilocybin enthusiasts. The strain is abbreviated as “Pacific Exotica Spora Amazonia.” The PESA strain is named by its developer, Pacifica Exotica Spora (PES). It is also known as the Amazon Strain, Amazonian Cubensis, and PES Amazonia.

The strain is large with caps over 15 cm in diameter and stems around 20 cm. However, it is known for being less potent than other P. cubensis strains.

The strain has distinguishing features. These features include reddish-brown caps that turn golden when mature. The strain also has yellowish-white stems that bruise blue-green when damaged. Additionally, it grows remarkably fast.

History of the PESA Strain

The PESA strain’s history is closely connected to the Pacifica Exotica Spora company. The company was the first to sell the strain and gave it its unique name. Contrary to popular practice nowadays, it was common to include the name of the discovering company within the strain name.

There is often confusion between the “Amazon cubensis” or “Amazon strain” mushroom. Some people disagree on their identity. Both strains produce similar large mushrooms. However, PESA tends to form denser clusters and has darker caps than the classic Amazon strain.

PESA is the most widely accepted theory. It suggests genetic isolation from the original Amazon strain. In the 1970s, Terence and Dennis McKenna discovered the original Amazon Cubensis strain. They were on an expedition in the rainforest, searching for psychedelics. The strain’s intriguing history can be traced back to that time.

Psilocybe cubensis and other psychedelic mushrooms have been revered in traditional ceremonies. These practices have been passed down for centuries in South and Central America. The variety of psilocybin-containing mushrooms is vast here, with Psilocybe cubensis among them.

Potency & Psilocybin Content

The PESA strain has lower potency and less psilocybin than average magic mushrooms. Its combined psilocybin and psilocin levels, according to data from the Psilocybin Cup, average just 0.43% when dried. This is below the typical potency range for magic mushrooms, which is generally between 0.5% and 0.9%.

The potency of the PESA strain can vary greatly. It depends on factors like growing conditions, substrate used, and environmental changes. Therefore, the strength of one mushroom can vary greatly from another, even within the same strain.

The classic Amazon strain displays a much higher potency than the PESA strain. The average total tryptamine levels for this mushroom are closer to 1.4%, which is more than triple the potency of the PESA strain.

It’s important to note that although the PESA strain’s potency is below average, it is still a psychedelic mushroom. It is important to consume it responsibly. This means being aware of its potential psychotropic effects.

Dosing PESA Magic Mushrooms

When dosing PESA Magic Mushrooms, one must consider their lower potency. As previously mentioned, they contain an average of just 0.43% psilocybin when dried, below the typical levels for magic mushrooms. Here is a rough guideline for dosing:

  • Microdose: 0.1 to 0.25 grams of dried PESA can enhance mood, productivity, and creativity without psychedelic effects.

  • Creative Dose: 0.25 to 0.5 grams of dried PESA can stimulate creativity and introspection, with mild changes in perception.

  • Recreation Dose: 0.5 to 1 gram of dried PESA can enhance the recreational experience. It may cause perceptual changes and lead to profound thoughts.

  • Light Psychedelic Experience: 1 to 2 grams will deliver a light psychedelic experience. Users may experience changes in perception and mood, as well as introspective insights.

  • Medium Psychedelic Experience: 2 to 3 grams will result in a medium psychedelic experience that includes strong visual distortions and possibly deep introspection.

  • Strong Psychedelic Experience: 3 to 5 grams of dried PESA is considered a strong dose, likely leading to a profound psychedelic experience.

  • Heroic Dose – Spiritual Experience: A heroic dose consists of 5+ grams of dried PESA. This dose may lead to intense hallucinations, ego dissolution, and potentially spiritual experiences.

Experiences with PESA Mushrooms

Individuals who consume PESA mushrooms often report a wide range of experiences. Users commonly feel euphoric and more aware at lower doses. They also experience a general sense of well-being. PESA is popular with beginners or those seeking a milder experience. Its psilocybin content is lower.

On the other hand, higher doses can induce more profound psychedelic effects. Some users report experiencing visual and auditory hallucinations, time distortion, and deep introspection. Although the effects can be intense, they are typically well-tolerated due to the strain’s lower potency.

Experiences can differ between people due to various factors like tolerance and environment. The amount consumed also plays a role. It is recommended to begin with smaller doses of psilocybin mushrooms. Especially for those who are new, gradually increase the amount.

  1. About 5 minutes after I posted my last review about all the trouble I was having and that the 2 day Express Shipping took from Jan 4 – Jan 9 to reach me and that I was supposed to receive 1/2 Ounce Variety Pack of B+/Jedi Mind Fuck Mushrooms and that I only received the B+ Mushrooms, I received a call directly from the company. Talk about above and beyond. I thought at most I’d receive an e-mail. The guy apologized for all the trouble and “was going to make it right”.

    These guys are the real deal. Everyone makes mistakes but not all companies are so fast at responding. That makes me feel like my patronage is highly valued, which in turn makes me want to shop there again. I am glad that I took a chance on Think Mushrooms. I hope they’ll send me an e-mail or call and tell me what exactly they’re going to do for me.

    One thing is for certain, these guys will do as much as possible to make sure that they’re customers are happy with they’re purchases. I would and will definately use them again.

    On another note, the B+ Mushrooms I did receive were good, I would’ve preferred a more visual experience but I was very happy with the trip I had with the B+.

  2. I recently tried PESA Magic Mushrooms, and I must say it was a truly amazing experience. At first, I was a bit hesitant trying out something new like this. But after my first taste, I knew why so many people rave about this product! The flavour was super tasty and intense, but the dosage wasn’t too strong. It had just enough kick to it without leaving me feeling overwhelmed.

    The effects of PESA Magic Mushrooms were also pleasant and enjoyable. I felt an increased sense of clarity but still relaxed at the same time. It lasted for hours with no negative side-effects whatsoever.
