B+ Magic Mushrooms
B+ Mushrooms is a strain of Psilocybe cubensis, a well-known hallucinogenic mushroom species. The B+ Mushroom strain is popular with growers because it is easy to work with, accepting a very wide range of growing conditions and substrates and producing large, thick caps.
Though not the fastest grower among P. cubensis strains, B+ Magic mushrooms are not the slowest, either. Color can vary a little, depending on growing conditions; enthusiasts describe the large golden to caramel-color caps as “beautiful.”
B+ Mushroom is a strain of Psilocybe cubensis, a popular magic mushroom species commonly referred to as “cubes.”
B+ mushrooms have relatively large light brown caps with a dark brown, almost black center. The interior of the cap is white.
The legend has it that a dedicated cultivator from Florida, called Mr. G., developed the B plus strain. It’s known for its caramel golden caps and thick juicy stems. Similar characteristics to our Golden Teacher Mushrooms.
The underside of the cap features dark purple gills surrounded by gray-colored edges. On the other hand, a young B+ specimen’s gills are often a grayish color that darkens as it matures. Very young B+ mushrooms have a veil covering the gills.
B+ mushrooms have long white stems that bruise a dark bluish color and release deep purple spores. Nevertheless, It is extremely easy to mistake P. cubensis mushrooms like B+ Mushroom for a poisonous mushroom from the Galerina genus.
Effects of B+ Mushrooms?
B+ mushrooms have similar effects to other P. cubensis strains including; euphoria, spiritual experiences, hallucinations, and an overarching sense of warmth and well-being. Many people who use B+ mushrooms describe the experience as calming. Thereby saying it was easier to relax and let the experience unfold than with other strains.
Everyone experiences psilocybin’s effects differently, but the consensus among B+ Magic Mushroom users is that it tends to be highly visual and less introspective than other strains.
Users also report that B+ is less likely to cause bad trips and unwanted side effects like nausea and vomiting, although side effects are still dose-dependent.
B+ Mushrooms Dosage
There are many guides on the internet that recommend shrooms dosages (including us). Meanwhile, they may work for the average person, there’s no guarantee that generic recommendations will be right for you.
Each person’s metabolism is different, and not all magic mushrooms of the same species have the same strength. The best way to determine your dose is by experimentation.
Start with a small dose — ideally less than one gram for the first time.
Notice how your body reacts and slowly increase the dose during subsequent experiences until you reach a level you’re comfortable with.
Even though the best way to find the right B+ Magic mushrooms dose for you is to experiment, it’s useful to know common dosing recommendations so you can communicate with other psychonauts. Most people divide doses up into categories, starting with microdoses on the low end and heroic doses on the high end.
- Microdose: 0.2 to 0.5 grams
- Threshold dose: 0.5 to 1 gram
- Psychoactive dose: 2 to 5 grams
- Heroic dose: Greater than 5 grams
How to Take B+ Mushrooms
Magic mushrooms are notorious for their foul, bitter taste, and B+ mushrooms are no exception.
There are many ways to take magic mushrooms, depending on how badly you want to mask the flavor and how much time you’re willing to wait before taking your dose.
1. Make Mushroom Tea
The most popular way to consume B+ mushrooms is shroom tea. Making shroom tea is generally easy and only requires one to three grams of dried B+ mushrooms, two of your favorite tea bags, and two cups of water. Grind the magic mushrooms, boil the water, and let the magic mushrooms dissolve with one tea bag for about ten minutes. Strain the tea and repeat with the other teabag.
2. Lemon Tekking
Another great way to take B+ mushrooms without feeling sick is called “lemon tek.” To make lemon tek, dissolve ground magic mushrooms in diluted lemon juice for 20 minutes before drinking it. Lemon tek increases the strength of the psychoactive effects, so experienced users recommend using a lower dose of B+ Magic Mushroom than you normally would.
3. Mushroom Capsules
A good way to mask the taste of mushrooms is to grind them into a powder and then fill capsules. Standard 00 caps should hold around 750 mg of magic mushrooms, so you’ll need to take 2–6 for a psychoactive dose.
4. Eat Them Raw
The simplest way of taking B+ magic mushrooms is to just eat them straight up. They don’t taste great, but it’s effective and requires no preparation.
Many people will wash down their magic mushrooms with some sort of juice to cover the taste.
Alternatively, you can add your shrooms to some food to hide the taste. Just make sure you don’t add the shrooms until AFTER you’ve cooked the food. High heat will destroy the active ingredients in the magic mushrooms. If you make a pizza, bake it, and then add the dried magic mushrooms after it’s come out of the oven.
5. Blue Honey
Honey is a great solvent for psilocybin. Chop your B+ mushrooms up into small pieces and cover them in honey. However, you’ll need to let it sit for a few weeks, stirring the mixture every couple of days.
After about two weeks, most of the psilocybin will have dissolved into the honey. You can then eat the honey raw, mix it into tea, or spread it on toast for psychoactive effects.
