Albino A+ Mushrooms

A+ Magic Mushrooms

Albino A+, or AA+, sometimes called, is a cultivated strain of the well-known psychoactive mushroom species Psilocybe cubensis. It’s typically cream-colored to white, sometimes with a bluish tint—when damaged, it bruises blue. The spores are purple-black; once they mature, they cover the stem ring and make it appear black. Because these mushrooms have reduced pigmentation, not none at all, they are technically “leucistic,” not albinos. That’s good news for growers since real albino mushrooms have colorless spores that are almost invisible and, thus, very hard to work with.

There is also a more typically-pigmented strain called A+. The two are very similar and undoubtedly closely related. Curiously, sources differ regarding the parent strain, but logic suggests that the non-albino version came first. Either way, AA+ is the more popular of the two.

There is persistent speculation that albino A+ is part-Panaeolus since its high is reportedly reminiscent of the effects of some of the more potent Panaeolus species. Such hybridization between different genera is likely impossible, but there may be some coincidental biochemical similarity.

The important thing to remember is that albino A+ is popular thanks to its high potency and large flushes.

In general, eating Psilocybe cubensis results in changes in mood and thought patterns and, at higher doses, hallucination. Nausea is also common, unfortunately. Dangerous side effects are rare but possible, and children are especially likely to have bad reactions. The high usually begins about half an hour after ingestion and lasts six to eight hours, though longer trips are possible.

Whether any of the above varies depending on strain is a matter of debate. Some people say, “a cube is a cube,” while others insist that each strain is distinct. Members of the latter group say that albino A+ starts fast, is often funny, and causes hallucinations that make the world appear gelatinous.

Curiously, albino A+ is also known for having a particularly strong flavour that some users don’t like.


Potency does vary between strains. Albino A+ is one of the more potent Psilocybe cubensis strains.

Growing Albino A+

Albino A+ can be grown by any method generally used for Psilocybe cubensis. It’s not a particular strain and is considered easy to grow. Many growers report that it is a slow strain, though, with a very long colonization time and very slow fruiting—and some growers report that the strain is about typical in its timing. [ii] What is not typical is the reliability of the strain’s growth, the generosity of its flushes, and the great production of spores by its mature specimens; impressive production makes albino A+ a favourite among magic mushroom growers despite its sometimes slow progress.


The effects of psilocybin, the chemical responsible for most of Psilocybe cubensis’ psychoactivity, generally depend on the dose—a very small dose will be mood-altering and mildly mind-altering, but it will not be hallucinogenic. A very large dose will cause temporary disintegration of the self, an experience some people seek and others find terrifying. Dangerous side effects are also more likely at higher doses. Users often speak of three to five dosage levels: microdose (non-hallucinogenic); beginner; experienced; and heroic. It’s possible to estimate how many mushrooms will get a person to each level, provided one knows whether the mushroom is fresh or dried, what strain it is, and other factors. But even within a strain, potency can vary, plus human sensitivity to psilocybin varies from person to person.

Dosage recommendations should be regarded only as rough suggestions.

Buying vs Growing Albino A+

Someone wishing to use albino A+ has two main options—buying or growing. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Which one is best depends on the user’s situation and interests—and, to some extent, on applicable law.

Growing at home is the cheapest option per gram, especially for people who collect their spores and keep the growing straight for batch after batch. The only supplies that need to be replaced are substrate materials and water, which are very low-cost. Plus, growing mushrooms is a fascinating hobby.

In some areas, there is a legal advantage to growing at home, too. In many (not all) jurisdictions, it’s not the illegal fungus but the chemical psilocybin. From a legal perspective, a mushroom that contains psilocybin is illegal only in the same way that a jar containing psilocybin would be—and spores don’t contain psilocybin. That means they are legal to buy and sell. Illegal activity happens only in the privacy of one’s own home.

But some jurisdictions have specific laws against the possession of these spores. Having a large amount of illegal material in the home for an extended period can be a serious risk. Plus, only some people even want large amounts of the same strain, no matter how good that strain may be.

Buying mushrooms, though risky from a legal perspective and in terms of quality (it’s not as if one can sue the seller if anything goes wrong), allows a user to obtain just a dose or two quickly. That’s a good option for someone who doesn’t yet know if they’re going to like mushrooms, and it’s a good option for an enthusiast who wants to try every kind there at least once.
