Psilocybe mexicana is a species of psilocybin mushroom with a fascinating social background. Its first known use was by the indigenous peoples of North and also Central America over 2,000 years ago. The Aztecs used it as a spiritual rite and also called it teotlnanácatl, which is composed of the Nahuatl words teotl ("god") and nanácatl ("flesh"). So teotlnanácatl means "flesh of the gods". The first thing to note is that Psilocybe mexicana grows in the wild. So if you want to go out as well as select them in nature (as opposed to purchasing them from a person), after that you need to recognize what they appear like. If you intend to successfully find Psilocybe mexicana in nature, after that you require to know where it expands. This indicates understanding both the kind of environment as well as the countries they grow in.Psilocybe mexicana grows alone or in small teams among moss along roadsides and tracks, in damp fields or cornfields, and specifically, in the verdant locations surrounding deciduous woodlands. It prevails at altitudes between 300-505 meters, and uncommon in lower elevations.Psilocybe mexicana can look comparable to other species from the category of Psilocybe, such as Psilocybe azurescens and Psilocybe semlianceata (freedom caps). Nonetheless, it's very easy to tell them apart based on the nation you're in. psilocybe mexicana remains in the team of psilocybin mushrooms (which likewise consist of Psilocybe tampanensis) that are known to produce sclerotia.The sclerotia of these species are also called truffles, although this is an organic misnomer. Psilocybe mexicana's preferred environment is, as we have seen, manure-rich meadow. This is why Paul Stamets has named these mushrooms the "Mexican liberty cap", as the other freedom cap (Psilocybe semilanceata) likewise has a fondness for such environments.
