Mexican Mushrooms, also known as Psilocybe Mexicana, were first discovered and used by the natives of Central American over 2,000 years ago. Known to the Aztecs as teonanácatl from Nahuatl: teotl “god” + nanácatl “fungus”, there were often used in spiritual ceremonies. Before being qualified as “magic” and becoming the global phenomenon they are today, these mushroom were considered sacred by the Mesoamerican people of Mexico.
These mushrooms grow among moss along roadsides, trails, humid meadows, cornfields, and more particularly in grassy areas bordering deciduous forests in Central America – mainly Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guatemala.
The psychedelic effects from the Psilocybin contained within these shrooms tend to hit users within 15 minutes and can last about to 6 hours.
