golden caps mushroom, Psilocybe cubensis is a wide spread, large bodied, psychedelic mushroom that can be found in tropical and sub-tropical climates around the world. P. Cubensis produces the chemicals psilocin and psilocybin, which classifies it as one of the psilocybin mushrooms.
This species is the largest of all the Psilocybes with equally robust rhizomorphic mycelium. Typically, the caps of the mushroom are chestnut brown to golden sometimes with a white ring around the outside of the cap, which is where it earned the nick-name gold cap mushroom from.
Other common names for this mushroom are cubes, cubies, shrooms, magic mushrooms, boomers, and gold tops. This is usually the first psychedelic mushroom people encounter, and is the most commonly available due to it’s ease of indoor cultivation.
