McKennaii mushrooms are a strain of Psilocybe cubensis, one of the most commonly used species of psilocybin mushroom. The latter is a medium-strength magic mushroom, whereas McKennaii mushrooms — like many other strains of Psilocybe cubensis — are very potent. This means that they contain higher concentrations of the compounds psilocybin and psilocin, which are responsible for psychedelic effects.
McKennaii mushrooms get their name from the psychonaut, lecturer, author, and psilocybin enthusiast Terence McKenna. Several of his books explored different aspects of psilocybin mushrooms, as well as his own mushroom experiences and interpretations of them, such as The Invisible Landscape (1975), True Hallucinations (1989), The Archaic Revival (1991), and Food of the Gods (1992).
McKenna was known to discuss and recommend the high dose psilocybin experience in many of his talks, so perhaps it’s fitting that a potent type of magic mushroom would be named after him. This strain of Psilocybe cubensis is much sought after for its potency. This makes it one of the most potent magic mushroom
