Albino Penis Envy (A.P.E)


A.P.E is a small, often long-stemmed mushroom with a bluish ring that is often stained black by falling spores. The stem and cap both bruise blue. Wild-type caps are brownish, but APE caps are almost white. The species eats, and usually fruits from, the dung of large grazing animals—not from under dung (a habit other species have). The wild type grows freely in well-watered tropical and sub-tropical areas of almost every continent. Several look-alikes do share the same habitat, so it’s unwise for enthusiasts to go foraging on their own unless they have also developed some skill at mushroom identification.

Albino Penis Envy, or “APE,” for short, is a cultivated variety of Psilicybe cubensis, one of the best-known and popular “magic” mushrooms that are microdosed. As the name implies, the fruiting bodies do look rather penile, but the same can be said of many mushroom species. They are not especially envious.

APE is a pale-capped sub-variety[i] of Penis Envy, reputedly one of the most powerful varieties of P. cubensis—and rumored to have been discovered in South America by well-known author, Terrence McKenna[ii]. It can be difficult to grow, and is therefore rare, but ape is popular among those entheogen users who can get it.
