INTENSITY: 3 to 7 for most experiences. MATERIAL: There are dozens of species of mushrooms which contain the psychoactive alkaloids psilocybin/psilocin in active amounts. 99% of the psilocybin mushrooms I've seen sold on the underground market are the variety known as Psilocybe cubensis (also called Stropharia cubensis ), and dosage levels discussed below pertain to this variety.

The rite was led by two women, mother and daughter, both of them curanderas , or shamans.
