Enigma – A Review of the Psilocybin Enigma Mushroom
The enigma bar has become synonymous with this mushroom’s captivating appearance. It’s a blob-like psilocybin cubensis strain that has captured the interest of mycologists and shroomers alike. But it’s not just about the looks; enigma is also known for its purported potency.
Like most hallucinogenic fungi, the effects of enigma are directly proportional to the amount of mushrooms consumed. It is recommended that users start with a lower dose and gradually increase it to achieve the desired effects without overwhelming the body. As with all mushrooms, it’s important to remember that enigma is illegal in many countries, including the US.
Decoding the Enigma: A Journey into the World of Enigma Magic Mushrooms
This mushroom is a man-made mutation of the popular psilocybe cubensis species. Mycologist Jonathan Harris explains that when growing mushrooms under certain conditions, the mycelium will produce mutations of itself above ground called “sclerotia.” This sclerotia has a lumpy, brain-like appearance and can form the “Enigma” mushroom when it’s exposed to light.
When grown correctly, this strain has been reported to be a very reliable producer of impressive harvests. In a recent Oakland Hyphae Cup report, one enigma candidate named “Enigma Tony” contained 8.4 milligrams of psilocybin per gram.
Growing this strain requires the same techniques as other psilocybe cubensis varieties, but is less resistant to contamination than more beginner-friendly strains such as Golden Teacher and Tidal Wave. In order to achieve the best results, growers should use a substrate that’s rich in gypsum and coconut coir. They should also ensure that the enigma strain receives consistent temperature, humidity, and substrate consistency.
