African (Psilocybe cubensis transkei)


The African Transkei Cubensis is a highly potent strain of psilocybin mushroom known for producing an extremely prominent body high, and fantastic visuals. The African Transkei originate from South Africa – our first records of them indicate that they were collected in 2002, in Transkei (the Wild Coast region of South Africa.) They were spotted directly growing atop dung under the shade of trees.

Since that time, the strain has been isolated and researched extensively. In appearance, they are known for their small orange/brown/white button caps and twisting gnarled stems. Unlike many psilocybe cubensis strains, the African Transkei have a veil that remains connected to the cap for a very long time, sometimes not even tearing, meaning its remnants remain on the stem as well as the cap.

The high from the African Transkei is something out of this world. While not regarded as the most spiritually enlightening mushroom, the visuals produced from this strain constitute an absolute firework show: a stunning combination of tracers, lights, and geometric patterns, moving and building on one another in a mesmerizing choreography, it truly has to be experienced to be appreciated. It is one of the most visually evocative highs you are ever likely to experience.


Microdose – 0.1g – 0.3g
Beginner – 0.3g – 1g
Average – 1g – 2.5g
Experienced – 2.5g – 3.5g+

Effects begin between 10 to 40 minutes after ingestion and can last between 3 and 6 hours, depending on the dose and the individual. Like all tryptamines, psilocybes often cause what has been called “the mushroom yawns” which increase markedly as one begins to peak, however, the feeling in the rest of the body is energetic, not tired. Users can expect a wide variety of possible effects and sensations, from the mystical, euphoric and revelatory to the hyperspatial and mind-altering observational. At doses over 3 grams, some users report experiencing warping of the visual field, and Dali-esque melting objects, and other possible effects include time distortion, hallucinations both when eyes are closed or open, and synesthesia (i.e. “seeing” sounds and “feeling” colours). Remember to stay hydrated, especially if you’re outdoors or doing activities like dancing, and try sipping some honey ginger tea to counteract any possible nausea during the come-up. Do not use if pregnant and do not mix with other drugs or alcohol.

    I’ve tried this strain the Transkei before from another site but the batch from SG was better. I approached it with the “lemon tekking” method at just 1.25 grams as it was my first time trying this method. With this method and this batch of Transkei I got a real good feel for this strain almost ecstasy euphoria and visuals but mostly a real body and deep head high for myself anyways. I personally can find some similarities between this strain and the tri-coloured Ecuador. This dose and strain and “lemon tekking” method of consumption was just pure therapy for me and I do not use mushrooms for recreational purposes I take it seriously for relaxation and to help keep anxiety and depression at bay as I am tired of medication. Thanks SG 5/5

    Potent and at a great price, what else is there to say buy these you won’t regret it – both visually and mentally stimulating.

    I take SSRIs and have found that even when I ween myself off of them a couple days before a trip, not all mushrooms work for/on me. Thus far, the only success I’ve had is with Amazonian (Golden teachers and albino Avery were a no go). The Africans also worked for me. Incredible visuals. Beautiful patterns. 2 grams was okay; 4 grams on an empty stomach was perfect. Try them!

    Wow, these are visually pleasing, make sure you try this slow. I started with just over 1g and the high was what I expected. Highly recommend this for a chill visual trip.
