Melmac mushrooms are a creation of mankind—and no, we don’t mean genetically modified organisms. This strain of mushroom was developed by mycologists through generations of careful breeding in a lab. As a result, tangled, thick fungus that bruise blue when touched have an unearthly appearance and sensation.
According to legend, Melmac mushrooms are subspecies of the well-known Penis Envy mushrooms. Some claim that Melmac’s are even more similar to the original Penis Envy, which was made available to mycologists worldwide in the 1970s. Yet there is disagreement over the veracity of this assertion. The names “Melmac Penis Envy” or “Homestead Penis Envy” mushrooms have been given to these strange fungi. Mushrooms known as “Penis Envy” are renowned for their distinctively curved shape and peculiar development patterns. The Melmac mushroom strain offers all the advantages you’ve come to anticipate from any Psilocybe cubensis mushroom, despite its odd appearance.
The Appearance of Melmac Mushroom
Melmac Penis Envy has a totally distinctive appearance. First of all, compared to conventional Penis Envy magic mushrooms, this strain is far larger.
Its cap, which has an alien appearance, is the most amazing aspect. The thick shafts of the cap are folded repeatedly at the edges, giving it a pleated and phallic form.
Melmac PE mushrooms have a tendency to bruise and turn blue after being stored and harvested. Yet, this physical shape is completely natural and has no effect on the quality or effectiveness of the magic mushrooms, so there is no need to be concerned.
Melmac Mushroom Variations and Hybrid
One of the strains of Penis Envy mushrooms is the Melmac sponge, as we already mentioned. Compared to other well-known cubensis strains, they are simpler to identify. It is crucial to remember, nevertheless, that the idea of a “fungal species” is debatable.
The terms “variety” and “cultivated variety” are frequently used interchangeably with the word “strain.” The majority of mushrooms sold as Psilocybe cubensis strains, however, appear like typical brown mushrooms and aren’t particularly potent compared to other Psilocybe cubensis specimens.
Characteristics and Effects of Melmac Mushroom
Melmac mushrooms produce psilocybin just like any other Psilocybe cubensis. The primary component of Melmac mushrooms with psychoactive properties is psilocybin.
When consumed, psilocybin is metabolized in the human body into psilocin. The result is a psychedelic journey: a mind-altering experience that changes your perception of space, time, and self-esteem.
An uncomfortable psychedelic experience may leave one feeling queasy, anxious, stressed, and uncomfortable, which can lead to restlessness.
Melmac Mushroom Potency
Psilocybe mushroom potency primarily depends on the conditions of growth. But, there hasn’t been much research done yet. Certain strains and species may regularly produce more substantial levels of psilocybin than others. Penis Envy mushrooms routinely rank among the strongest Psilocybe cubensis strains thanks to the work of Oakland Hyphae and the Psilocybin Cup, which is fortunately beginning to offer some information on the potency of various strains. However, there haven’t been many studies or comparisons specifically involving the Malmec mushroom strain.
Melmac has similar trip effects to other psilocybin mushrooms in general. That is, there is an amplification or augmentation of the user’s initial mood (ideally this will mean euphoria and a sense of connection, as it frequently does), as well as hallucinations, which are likely to be modest, save at high dosages, and may not occur at very low doses. It’s fairly unusual to experience unpleasant side effects like nausea, vomiting, and excessive yawning. Less frequent but real are more severe side effects include crippling anxiety and issues with balance and coordination. Rare but conceivable are really serious issues.
By following a few safety precautions, such as paying close attention to the environment and setting, hiring a trip sitter, ensuring your health is sufficient for the trip and that you are not taking any drugs that could negatively interact with psilocybin, and allowing enough time for integration after the trip, the risk of serious side effects can be reduced.
Users are divided over whether strains differ from one another in terms of consequences beyond differences in potency, much like drinkers are divided over whether different types of alcohol have different effects. It is possible to argue that psilocybin is simply psilocybin. Nonetheless, Melmac is reportedly tranquil, with little sights but a powerful emotional component, at least anecdotally.
Melmac’s effects are generally comparable to those of other Psilocybe cubensis strains, which typically heighten the user’s current mood. When done properly, it produces emotions of exhilaration, increased empathy, and a sense of connection to nature.
Depending on the dosage, individual body chemistry, prior psychedelic experience, mood, and environment, each person’s experience with Melmac mushrooms will be different.
People describe severe visual and aural hallucinations with brilliant colors, patterns, distorted sounds, and an altered sense of time on a full recreational dose of Melmac mushrooms, with effects lasting up to six hours.
A bad mushroom trip can occasionally result in nausea, vomiting, anxiety, panic attacks, and even poor judgment, which can result in mishaps and injuries.
