Fast onset, long lasting mushroom trip.
STRAIN | Avery’s Albino
Avery’s Albino is a genetically-isolated cultivar of Cambodian Psilocybe cubensiscubensis varieties, a relative newcomer to the magic mushroom market. Boasting “great psychedelic effects,” and with a potency not too high for the beginning user, Avery’s Albino is a great, mellow choice for camping or relaxing social situations.
Avery’s Albino mushrooms are often referred to as “albino shrooms” or simply “Avery’s.”
If you are considering using Avery’s Albino mushrooms or any other psychedelic substance, it is important to do your research and educate yourself about the potential risks and benefits. It is also important to be aware of the legal status of these substances in your area.
SPECIES | Psilocybe cubensis
ORIGIN | Avery’s Albino mushroom is a recent addition to the wide world of magic mushrooms, having been isolated and cultivated from the more typically-colored Cambodian cubensis. Cambodian mushrooms originate in the Siem Reap region of Cambodia. As a result, the mushrooms enjoy heat and grow well in warmer conditions. These albino shrooms also have a very short growing period, with fruits ready for picking in as little as 25 days of growing.
POTENCY | Avery’s Albino is considered to be a potent strain, though the high is consistently described as “more mellow” than other shrooms. The potency of the strain comes from its very quick uptake. Beginner psychonauts may find this slightly off-putting if not prepared for the intensity of the shroom’s onset. That said, the trip is slightly shorter than most other shrooms, which may appeal to those who are just starting out on their psychedelic explorations.
INTENTION | Beginner and experienced trippers suggest Avery’s Albino mushroom is a good choice for more relaxed, social events than some other strains. If you’re planning on an evening of hanging out with friends and tripping, AA provides a very short wait period and a mellow trip. For those who have tried some of the lower-potency shrooms (e.g. Golden Teachers) and want to dip their toes into something a little more intense without going to a mind-blowing strain like Albino Penis Envy.
EFFECTS | Trippers report feelings of excitement and energy sometimes only minutes after consuming these albino shrooms. The intense onset of the mushroom is balanced by a mellow, introspective high accompanied by intense visual hallucinations. Unlike some more potent strains, hallucinations are generally confined to visuals, and only on very high doses do users report dissociative or ego-destroying effects.
APPEARANCE | Unlike the leucistic Albino A+, Avery’s Albino is a true albino – even the spores are white, making them exceptionally difficult to collect and isolate. These hard-to-grow fungi are shorter than many other P. cubensis species, with thick caps and stems. Blue bruising of damaged mushrooms is indicative of their relatively high psilocybin content.
DURATION | Avery’s Albino mushrooms have a much quicker onset than other hallucinogenic mushrooms, with users feeling effects sometimes as soon as ten minutes after consumption. A moderate dose of AA produces a trip that lasts 3 – 6 hours, slightly shorter than most other psilocybes.
DOSE | Though not recommended for absolute beginners, a moderate dose (2 – 3.5g) of these albino shrooms is an excellent choice for those seeking to expand both their consciousness and their knowledge of magic mushrooms. As noted, these mushrooms take effect much more quickly than most other strains. This strain is also reportedly excellent for microdosing, providing energy, motivation, and creative inspiration for your daily routine.
