Escondido (Mexico) Mushroom Spores

Share This Post

The Escondido is one of the oldest strains of Psilocybe cubensis. The mushroom hails from Puerto Escondido, an area in the state of Oaxaca, southern Mexico. Oaxaca is the birthplace of María Sabina, known as the “priestess of mushrooms”. She was the original curandera; meaning ‘healer’ or ‘shaman’ in Portuguese. In the 1950s, María Sabina was also the first Mexican to allow Westerners to participate in psychedelic mushroom veladas (healing ceremonies). It is for this reason that the Escondido strain holds a special place in many mycologists’ hearts.
