APE, short for Albino Penis Envy, is a potent and unique strain of Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. The “revert” in APE Revert refers to the fact that this particular strain exhibits non-albino traits despite originating from the albino lineage. It’s a combination of the powerful effects found in the APE family with the more traditional appearance of non-albino Psilocybe cubensis strains.
Appearance: The APE Revert mushrooms typically exhibit a richer, more traditional golden-brown cap as opposed to the paler, almost translucent caps of their albino counterparts. Their stipes (stems) can be thick and bulbous, especially at the base, reminiscent of the classic Penis Envy morphology. The caps may also range from conic to flat, depending on their age and growth conditions.
Potency: APE strains, including the APE Revert, are renowned for their high psilocybin and psilocin content. They are often regarded as one of the more potent strains within the Psilocybe cubensis family. This means that even experienced users should approach them with caution, as the effects can be intense.
Effects: Onset of effects can be as quick as 20 minutes or might take up to 2 hours, contingent on individual metabolism, stomach contents, and dosage. Users often report profound visual and auditory hallucinations, a heightened sense of connectivity with their surroundings, and deep introspective thoughts. Emotional experiences can range from intense euphoria to moments of spiritual enlightenment.
Dosage: An ounce (28 grams) is quite a bit of this potent mushroom variety. Typically, dosages start at as low as 1 to 2 grams for those unfamiliar with its effects. Even seasoned psychonauts tend to be cautious with APE strains due to their potency, often preferring moderate dosages.
Safety & Precautions: Given their potency, it’s essential to be in a comfortable and safe environment when consuming APE Revert. Having a trusted individual, preferably sober, can be beneficial, especially for those less experienced. Mixing with other substances, particularly other psychedelics or alcohol, is generally discouraged. If adverse reactions occur, seeking a calm environment and focusing on deep, steady breathing can help.
Storage: Like other psilocybin mushrooms, APE Revert should be stored in a cool, dark place to maintain its potency and freshness. When dried properly, they can be stored longer in airtight containers. They should always be kept out of reach of children, pets, and anyone unaware of their contents.
