History of Wollongong Magic Mushrooms
Wollongong magic mushrooms got their interesting name from the place they were found. These incredible mushies are also called Wollongong magic, after the town in Australia.
Wollongong is the capital of Illawarra, a region in the Australian state of New South Wales. Legend has it that someone found these beauties on the hillsides overlooking the town of Wollongong.
From there, the strain was cultured, and the spores were promptly sent around the world. Like many other strains, no one is quite sure who first cultured this strain.
In any case, we’re glad they did because they’ve become a staple strain in spore banks around the world.
Wollongong Magic Mushroom Effects
Like we said before, Wollongong magic mushrooms are visually intense and quite introspective. A regular dose of these, and you’ll enter a world of mind-bending colors and hallucinations followed by deep and powerful thoughts.
Taking Wollongong Magic Mushrooms Recreationally
When taking Wollongong shrooms recreationally, you’ll need to be careful. Remember, this strain is pretty strong, and it’s easy to go overboard.
However, as long as you don’t go too crazy, you’ll have a fantastic time. Everything around you will take on a new perspective and meaning as you connect with nature and other people.
Since this strain can be introspective, it’s best to take it with close friends or other trusted people. Just remember to be in a safe space and never drive a car after taking them.
Always keep enough supplies with you to last your trip. As a pro tip, we also recommend having some music handy.
Music can change one’s internal environment, which can be helpful to bring yourself or others out of a negative thought loop.
Taking Wollongong Magic Mushrooms Spiritually
If you’re ready to let go of your ego and experience ego death, then Wollygong is the magic mushroom strain for you. With a hefty dose of these shrooms, you’ll rocket your mind into another plane of consciousness.
On high doses, Wollongong shrooms offer an incredible visual experience that’s unlike any other strain.
However, you must be prepared to go on a spiritual journey. In order to lose your ego, you must have the right internal and external environment.
Basically, it all boils down to a concept called set and setting. Set is the mindset or your own personal headspace.
That means your head needs to be as clear as possible—no responsibilities, worries, or anything else.
The setting is your physical environment—the place you’ll have your trip. The location should be familiar, comfortable, and relaxing.
Part of the setting is the people around you. Ideally, you should only have one other trusted person with you to act as a trip sitter.
A trip sitter is someone who can look after you while you’re deep in your trip. That person should have some psychedelic experience and know what to do to keep you from getting into a challenging trip.
As long as you remember to keep a good set and setting, you’re sure to have the mystical journey of a lifetime.
How to Dose Wollongong Magic Mushrooms
As we mentioned before, Wollongong magic mushrooms are a potent strain of P. cubensis. Although many people claim that all cubensis strains have about the same potency, this strain definitely proves them wrong.
If you’re a beginner, you’ll want to take it easy with this strain, and you’ll want to start well below your usual dose. If you’ve never taken magic mushrooms before, then we’ve prepared a handy dosing guide:
- .25 grams (g) for a threshold dose (should feel something)
- .25-1g for a light dose (recreational dose)
- 1-2.5g for a medium dose (recreational dose)
- 5-5g for a strong dose (recreational to spiritual dose)
- 5g+ for an extreme dose (spiritual dose)
This guide is based on average P. cubensis potency, so keep that in mind. Even experienced trippers will want to take extra care when dosing these shrooms out.
How to Take Wollongong Magic Mushrooms
The great thing about Wollygong magic mushrooms is that you can take them in so many different ways—the sky’s the limit. Our favorite methods are either eating them straight up or making a shroom tea.
To cover up the unpleasant taste of magic mushrooms, you can always cover up the flavor with some peanut butter. However, eating shrooms straight up can lead to nausea, which is why we like to make magic mushroom tea.
Simply blend up your Wollygong magic mushrooms and weigh out your dose. Add some hot water to the blended mushrooms and let steep for 10-15 minutes.
Strain out the mushroom bits, and then voila—a nice cup of shroom tea. Just know that mushroom tea works a little faster and kicks a little harder.
