Matias Romero Mushrooms
Matias Romero mushroom are a strain of magic mushrooms belonging to the Psilocybe cubensis species. They naturally contain psilocybin and psilocin, a similarity among all “cubes.”
Psilocin is the chemical that causes humans to trip when they consume magic mushrooms, and psilocybin is broken down in the body to produce psilocin.
Matias Romero shrooms come from Mexico, although little is known about the exact origin or where the original sample was collected and isolated.
This strain is not incredibly popular, given how challenging it is to find.
However, it’s believed that Matias Romero shrooms are one of the oldest strains, having been allegedly ‘cultivated’ for generations somewhere in the rainforests of Southern Mexico.
