Albino Penis Envy, or “APE” for short, is a cultivated variety of Psilicybe cubensis.
APE is a pale-capped sub-variety of Penis Envy, reputedly one of the most powerful varieties of P. cubensis. Although this rare strain can be difficult to grow, it is popular among those entheogen users who can get it.
This strain is known to be potent. Its effects have been described as being very visual with a lot of euphoria and deep thoughts. “Flashbacks,” in which the effects suddenly reassert themselves long after the mushrooms have left the user’s system, are possible.
Effects include: a distorted sense of reality; visual/auditory hallucinations (or both); euphoria; spiritual experiences; nervousness; paranoia; panic.
The physical effects include: widened pupils; elevated heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature; drowsiness; headaches; weakness or poor coordination (or both); nausea; and (very rarely) convulsions. Again, not everybody has all of the symptoms
