B+ Mushrooms are strong enough to offer all the characteristic effects of magic mushrooms, yet they provide a pleasantly mellow, level-headed experience. Very strong magic mushroom strains, like Tidal Wave and Penis Envy, may be too strong for the average user.
Of course, the effects of the B+ mushrooms are still highly dependent on the mental state the user is in when they take them. Set and setting are still the primary factors for determining the experience.
The B+ strain was allegedly created by Mr G — a legend in the mushroom cultivation space also credited with the creation of the A+ Strain, Albino Treasure Coast, and several others.
Mr. G claims the B+ strain is a hybrid between P. cubensis and P. azurescens — however, this is widely contested and has not been proven. Most experts claim P. cubensis and P. azurescens can’t be reproduced. With that said, some of the growth characteristics model after both alleged parent strains.
This strain is somewhat famous for its large mushrooms. When grown in optimal conditions, it’s common to find a couple of absolute monsters growing from the substrate.
B+ Strain Potency
So far, the best analysis of the B+ mushroom strain comes from just four samples submitted to the Psilocybin Cup over the years.
Among these samples, the average potency was recorded at 0.59% and 0.11% psilocybin and psilocin, respectively. The total tryptamine average was 0.73% while the strongest sample submitted hit a peak of 1.38%.
While it’s entirely possible to get very strong mushrooms containing over 1% psilocybin and psilocin, most appear to fall within our average range of 0.50% to 0.90%.
What Are the Effects of B+ Shrooms?
B+ mushrooms have similar effects to other P. cubensis strains, including euphoria, spiritual experiences, hallucinations, and an overarching sense of warmth and well-being. Many people who use B+ shrooms describe the experience as calming, saying it was easier to relax and let the experience unfold than with other strains.
Everyone experiences psilocybin’s effects differently, but the consensus among B+ users is that it tends to be highly visual and less introspective than other strains.
Users also report that B+ is less likely to cause bad trips and unwanted side effects like nausea and vomiting, although side effects are still dose-dependent.
B+ Mushrooms Dosage
There are many guides on the internet that recommend shrooms dosages (including us), and while they may work for the average person, there’s no guarantee that generic recommendations will be right for you.
Each person’s metabolism is different, and not all mushrooms of the same species have the same strength. The best way to determine your dose is by experimentation.
Start with a small dose — ideally less than one gram for the first time.
Notice how your body reacts and slowly increase the dose during subsequent experiences until you reach a level you’re comfortable with.
Even though the best way to find the right shrooms dose for you is to experiment, it’s useful to know common dosing recommendations so you can communicate with other psychonauts. Most people divide doses up into categories, starting with microdoses on the low end and heroic doses on the high end.
- Microdose: 0.2 to 0.5 grams
- Threshold dose: 0.5 to 1 gram
- Psychoactive dose: 2 to 5 grams
- Heroic dose: Greater than 5 grams
