Aztec God varietal Psilocybin cubensis supposedly were isolated from wild fruiting bodies growing in Central America, specifically in Paso de Cortes in Mexico, in the mountains just south of Mexico City. The first mention of this strain comes from Roger Heim. Heim, a French mycologist, discovered and isolated the strain in 1956 from the Popocatepetl mountains in Mexico. Heim is supposedly the namesake of the active species Psilocybe Heimii.
There is some evidence — mostly in cave paintings, statues, and exploration reports from European explorers — ancient civilizations and more modern ones for religious and spiritual purposes used that magic mushrooms. Specifically, Bernardino de Sahagun, an explorer from Spain, made reference to “teonanacatl,” or the “flesh of the gods.” These references and statues discovered in Mexico seem to confirm that magic mushrooms were a rather important part of Central American culture for hundreds, if not thousands of years.
It’s improbable that today’s Aztec God strain is related to the wild strains used by these civilizations. However, strains constantly change in the wild, and many can proliferate in the same geographical area.
Frequently Asked Questions
A Mushroom Spore Print is the first (or last!?) stage in the reproductive lifecycle of a fungus! Once a mushroom fruiting body has reached maturiy, the cap is separated from the stipe and placed on aluminum foil. After some time, the gills will release the spores held on the basidium, and they will fall to the foil!
