There are potentially many ways to enhance your experience with the APEX mushroom. But, what matters is how you can enjoy this strain. 


Having a good trip depends on multiple factors. By adjusting these factors, you can guide the outcome of your experience.


However, there is another way you can get the best experience with APEX (Psilocybe Cubensis) by the herbs.


That’s right, herbs. But, of course, any psychedelics will make your tripping experience beyond expected when adding some herbal plants.


Herbs are potent enhancers but add a gentle kick to your tripping experience. It affects how your trip by making the users see things differently.


So, before you pick herbs in your garden for your next trip, here is a little information you need to know about APEX.

What is APEX Magic Mushroom?

APEX (psilocybe cubensis) is a new magic mushroom strain from crossing APE (Albino Penis Envy) and another cubensis. The X on the APEX comes from a strain of P .cubensis.


The mushroom doesn’t look like its parent lineage. Instead, it has a light-coloured stem and pale golden caps that are medium in thickness.


Like all Psilocybe cubensis, APEX does have the same active ingredients, Psilocin and Psilocybin. But the concentration of the active substances differs from strain to strain. In addition, the potency can determine when the onset is and how long the trip will last.


As for APEX, the potency or concentration of Psilocybin is exceptionally high. It can produce high levels of euphoria and cause some periods where you will lose touch with time. On the other hand, it leads to a more profound and life-changing experience. 


The intense potency of APEX is why we choose this mushroom to try with some enhancing herbs. It looks like the powerful euphoric experience coupled with herbs’ gentle, soothing effects can make a better experience.

APEX Dosage and Effects

Since APEX (Psilocybe cubensis) mushroom has a strong potency, the onset can start as fast as 10 to 30 minutes. After that, you’ll experience an enhancement of your mood, excitement, and euphoria. 


The trip you will encounter depends on the dose and mindset. Low doses cause a relaxing experience, while higher quantities can intensify the experience giving it a more altering event.

APEX mushroom has a museum or regular dose of 0.5 to 1.5 g. Meanwhile, the moderate dosage is 2 to 3.5 g. However, you are allowed to adjust the quantity as you desire.


The high potency of APEX (Psilocybe Cubensis) affects how long the trip lasts. In most cases, it’s 3 to 6 hours. 

The Parent Mushroom

APE is the parent mushroom of APEX.


APE or Albino Penis Envy is a Psilocybe cubensis strain often used as a microdose. It has a pale appearance and a potent dose of psychedelics. 


APEs are difficult to cultivate due to the rare release of their fertile spores. In addition, APE is sensitive to popular substrates and takes time to grow. So, it is not an ideal mushroom for beginners to cultivate.

Enhance Your APEX Trip with Herbs

Taking psychedelics doesn’t 100% mean that you’ll get a good trip. Some circumstances can affect the journey and lead to an anxious and negative experience. That’s why some users ask for assistance or a trip sitter.


Trip sitters are there to guide the user to prevent bad experiences. In addition, they are to calm down the person taking the psychedelics to let them enjoy the process.


Like a trip sitter, herbs are used in the psychedelic experience to enhance the feeling and make the process move smoothly.


Our choice of mushroom is the potent and rare APEX (Psilocybe cubensis). We are pairing this up with the following herbs. Since it has a high potency and its onset is sudden, it can be

scary for some people. So, herbs can guide and make the process smooth and easy.

Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum)

In India, according to folklore, Tulsi is a guardian and a protector. That sounds like the right herb to guide you in your psychedelic experience. This herb is also known for its other name, Holy Basil.


It can uplift the spirit or sensation and improve the users’ mood. Hence, it guides the person to a euphoric experience.


Tulsi manages to keep the user calm, make them feel relaxed, and get rid of whatever makes them feel anxious. It is crucial to maintain this comfortable feeling because when a person “trips,” their thoughts often wander, and sometimes it can make them feel anxious.


You can make tea with this herb and drink it during or before the trip.

Elderflower (Sambucus nigra)

Elderflower has a muscle-relaxing property. That’s why it’s a great pair with your APEX (Psilocybe cubensis), as it can release tension and extreme heat experienced by the user.


Aside from releasing tensions in the muscles, Elderflower can also help calm certain emotions like anger and anxiety. Of course, these emotions can happen during a psychedelic trip.


Elderflower has a sweet and calming scent which can keep negative emotions away and trigger a more uplifting feeling. 


Even if you are not going to take any psychedelics, Elderflower drinks are such a great refreshment to cool down and experience a positive emotion.

Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) and Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata)

S & P are like salt and pepper; they naturally go together. These two herbs are perfect for counteracting negative thoughts and anxiety during a trip.


Users can take the herb when they show signs of tension or anxiety. It’s also an herb to relax the mind after the trip experience.


The best way to get the full potential of S & P is to consume tinctures sublingually.

Cayenne (Capsicum annuum)

If you are having a stagnant trip or one that is constantly putting in a bad experience, Cayenne can kick you out of the rot. It’s fast-acting and can trigger heat.

With a couple of drops, it can awaken you and keep you moving. So if you are experiencing a trip that tends to freeze you or are fixated on one stage, Cayenne will make you aware of it.


You can then move on to a more relaxing or better trip than you were.

Lavender (Lavendula spp.)

Lavender is a popular herb. It is common in aromatherapy and cosmetics. The herb has a relaxing scent that can lower blood pressure and ease constrictions of muscles.


APEX (Psilocybe cubensis) is a new strain of APE, making it a potent mushroom. However, highly concentrated mushrooms can sometimes lead to anxiety and a negative tripping experience. But some herbs can assist in improving the trip and enhancing the experience of high doses of Psilocybin.
