Where Does the Lizard King Mushroom Come From?

The Lizard King is a Psilocybe cubensis strain originating from northern Mexico. It was named after an ethnomycologist who went by the name Lizard King and was responsible for finding several strains of magic mushrooms. The shroom was first found growing on wood mixed with horse manure, which is atypical for a cube, but hey – fungi can grow just about anywhere, given the right conditions.

Description of Appearance and Growing Conditions

Appearance-wise, the Lizard King mushroom looks just like other cubes. It has a thick, pale stem and a beige cap. It’s hard to distinguish from other specimens just by looking at it. What’s interesting, though, is that they bruise in a very blue color compared to other cubes. Most users of this shroom are people who grow it themselves from spores.

Overall, the effects of magic mushrooms depend on the dose. Half a gram is considered a microdose, which isn’t meant to produce a high but to improve cognition, focus and wellness.

It’s important to note that Lizard King mushrooms, according to some users, start working very fast – within 10 minutes. They may not be as potent as some other varieties of their species, but they seem to be reliable.
