History of John Allen Magic Mushrooms
The history of the John Allen strain starts with the man himself. John Allen earned the nickname ‘Mushroom John’ for his tireless work in mycology.
More specifically, Mushroom John is an ethnomycologist, artist, explorer, photographer, and author. He’s spent much of his life traveling the world while discovering and photographing new mushroom species.
On top of that, John Allen is also responsible for finding and developing famous magic mushroom strains. Those strains include classics such as Burmese, Pink Buffalo, and Cambodian.
To honor John Allen, a friend set out to develop an incredible magic mushroom strain. On the forum Shroomery, that friend is named Hydrogen (aka Roadkill).
Hydrogen received from John Allen some magic mushrooms that came from Koh Samui in Thailand. Hydrogen then cultivated and isolated an incredible strain and named it after John Allen.
It didn’t take long for the John Allen magic mushroom strain to skyrocket in popularity. Growers loved it for its excellent yield and incredible growing characteristics.
The Appearance of John Allen Magic Mushrooms
John Allen magic mushrooms are a sight to behold. That’s because these shrooms have large and beautiful light brown caps.
The caps also have a beautiful shape with an almost sharp point on top. The stems from the John Allen strain are also thick and dense.
However, once the magic mushrooms are dried, they lose much of their color, shape, and size. One thing you may notice on your dried shrooms is bluish spots.
These bluish spots are known as bruises. They happen when the psilocybin in the magic mushrooms reacts with the air.
Bruises are totally natural and happen all the time—usually from harvest or transport. Bruises don’t affect the potency or safety of your John Allen magic mushrooms.
John Allen Magic Mushroom Effects
The only word to describe the effects of the John Allen strain is—clean. Some strains leave your mind completely chaotic, but not this strain.
Your headspace will be absolutely clear as you contemplate everything around you. Also, John Allen magic mushrooms provide solid visuals and uplifting euphoria.
Taking John Allen Magic Mushrooms Recreationally
John Allen is a strain that’s perfect for recreational use. Whether you take them at home or in nature, you’re sure to have a blast.
At home, John Allen magic mushrooms are great for getting your creativity flowing. The clear-headed nature of these shrooms makes it easier to focus on something.
If you’re out, then you’ll be totally in awe of the world and the people around you. Building deep connections and laughing for hours has never been easier.
Just remember that you need to use psilocybin mushrooms carefully. That means that you shouldn’t drive or do anything remotely dangerous on them.
When you’re out in the world, make sure to bring enough food and water. After all, a magic mushroom experience can last up to six hours.
Taking John Allen Magic Mushrooms Spiritually
A large enough dose of John Allen magic mushrooms can bring you into the farthest reaches of consciousness. Once there, you’ll be able to have a profound experience that can be potentially life-changing.
However, there’s more to a spiritual trip than just taking a massive dose. You’ll also need to have a neutral mindset and a good environment to have a spiritual journey.
This concept is known as set and setting, and it’s vital. The setting is the place you’ll trip at—it should be comfortable, familiar, and a little stimulating.
Most people use their own homes, but anywhere will work. Remember that people are also part of the setting.
We recommend having only one person around to look after you. Any more, and it can be too distracting.
To prepare your set (or mindset)—it’s good to start practicing mindfulness. Take a few days off work and take care of all your obligations.
Once that’s done, you’ll be ready for your spiritual trip. All you need to do is dose out a hefty amount of John Allen magic mushrooms and let go.
How to Dose John Allen Magic Mushrooms
John Allen magic mushrooms have an above-average potency. They may not be the most potent strain, but they’re packed with psilocybin.
Some experienced psychonauts think that John Allen is much stronger than people realize. For that reason, you should be cautious when dosing them out.
If you’re a beginner and you’ve never dosed, then here’s a general guideline:
- .25 grams (g) for a threshold dose (should feel something)
- .25-1g for a light dose (recreational dose)
- 1-2.5g for a medium dose (recreational dose)
- 2.5-5g for a strong dose (recreational to spiritual dose)
- 5g+ for a heavy dose (spiritual dose)
Remember that everyone reacts to magic mushrooms differently. What’s a good dose for one person may not be suitable for another.
Multiple factors affect the dose, such as age, height, weight, and etc. That’s why it’s a good idea to start low and work your way up.
We recommend starting out at 1-2 grams to dip your toe in first. It’s always better to take more magic mushrooms later than get too high.
