Alacabenzi Psilocybe Cubensis: Growing, Effects, Potency & Legality


Alacabenzi is a cultivated strain of P. cubensis. Its history is a little murky, but it’s said to be a cross between and something else. It is known for the large size and lovely symmetry of its fruiting bodies, as well as for being very beginner-friendly, both for users and growers.

Alacabenzi is only one of many cultivated strains of P. cubensis, the species people most usually mean by phrases like “shrooms” or “magic mushrooms.” There are other hallucinogenic mushroom species, they’re just less popular. Most contain psilocybin, the same “active ingredient” that is in P. cubensis, but there are also a few Amanita species that are both safe to eat and “active,” thanks to a very different psychoactive substance, moscimol.

P.cubensis grows very widely in the wild, feeding on mammal dung. Although there a lot of natural variation, the mushrooms are usually medium-sized with light-brown caps. A webby partial veil protects the developing gills and tears just before spore release.



Alacabenzi’s trip has been compared to the experience of using some of the more potent cannabis strains. At low doses, users report mostly a sense of relaxation and insight. At higher doses, the visuals are still seldom dominant, but reality may seem to twist, causing difficulty with physical balance. First-time users especially should avoid moving around, because of the risk of falls in case the dose is a little more potent than planned.


Psilocybin concentration varies between strains, but it’s not known for sure whether other aspects of the user experience vary. That is, the trips themselves certainly vary, since the biochemistry and mental states of users vary—a trip is an interaction between mushroom and user, so the state of the user influences the direction of the trip. But whether part of the variety of experience is due to variation on the part of the mushroom, and whether each strain really has its own characteristic effects, is not clear. Certainly, many users insist there is a difference. Trying different strains and comparing them is part of the fun, for many.

P.cubensis and other Psilocybe mushrooms are relatively safe to use, but can carry unwanted side-effects. Nausea is common. Anxiety is also a real possibility, but can be minimized or managed through careful attention to dosage and to set and setting, and by having a sober friend on hand to provide comfort if necessary (and to help with any practical issues that may come up and be difficult for the user to manage alone). More serious problems, both psychological and physical, are possible but rare. It’s generally considered a bad idea to mix alcohol and shrooms, not because of any chemical interaction, but just because a tripping person would have trouble assessing how drunk they are and could therefore drink way too much without meaning to.

P.cubensis is also thought to have medicinal benefits, but psilocybin’s status as an illegal drug makes research difficult (on that note, please do not use any information from this article to get sent to prison).


As one of the more mellow strains, Alacabenzi could need a slightly larger dose than other strains, to produce the same effect. But a mellow experience (and hence a relatively small dose) is exactly what many users are looking for with this strain.

As to specifics, it is possible to calculate a recommended dose for p. cubensis from the user’s body weight and desired experience (a mellow high? An intense trip? A microdose?), and from the condition of the mushroom (fresh or dried)[iii]. But the result is just approximate. Not only does each strain have its own typical potency, but individual mushrooms of the same strain can differ, and the sensitivity of users also varies dramatically.

A little cautious trial and error are always called for.
