The Amazonian magic mushroom can trace its roots to the Brazilian Amazon Rain Forests – where it is suspected that native tribes have engaged in its consumption ritualistically for thousands of years.

Amazonian mushrooms are highly touted for the powerful visual hallucinations they can produce. Users typically do not describe the effects as producing the same feelings of euphoria as, for example, the Mexicana – but the psychotropic effects can be much stronger. For this reason, amazonian mushrooms are recommended to those who already have some experience with their milder cousins, such as the B+.
