2 x Spore Swabs
Named for its phallic appearance, Penis Envy was first brought from the Amazon Rainforest to the US by famed psychonaut and psychedelic researcher, Terence McKenna. Steven Pollock, one of McKenna’s colleagues, isolated and crossed Penis Envy strains to create distinguishable sub-variants. One of these is the Long Albino Penis Envy. Penis Envy magic mushrooms are renowned for their potency. Quality APE genetics are hard to find and this isolate has completely changed what is possible within the APE lineage. The fruits are tall, dense and potent. They grow and colonize slowly, like other APE genetics, and this allows for a lot of time for the mycelium to produce more alkaloids and the mushrooms are very potent as a result.
Swab sets come in a sealed pack containing two swabs.
