A favourite of Mazatec shamans, the Mazatapec strain is a potent beauty! Find out more about Mazatapec's name, origin and growth habit in this article.

Straight from the Eagle’s Nest

The Mazatapec spore is collected by the Mazatec shamans near Huautla Jimenez, Mexico. 

The name Huautla comes from the Nahuatl language. But the town is also called Tejao, meaning ‘Eagle’s Nest’ in the Mazatec language. The Nahuas and Mazatecs are indigenous groups in Mexico and share their ethnicity with the Aztecs

A strain to heal the pain

The Mazatec Indians use this strain for sacred, ritualistic ceremonies to talk to spirits and heal ailments.

In the 1950s, Westerners were allowed to participate in these rituals for the first time which introduced Psilocybin to the modern world. This started the Psychedelic Movement and changed the landscape of the use of hallucinogenic drugs around the world forever!

Just one tiny mistake…

Because this strain was originally used by the Mazatec, the strain bore their name. But due to a spelling error, it was introduced to the west as Mazatapec. It took a whole year to discover that mistake and by that time, the Mushroom community had already adopted the new but incorrect name. 

An old soul 

The Mazatapec strain grows in beautiful flushes but asks its grower for some patience. It is possible but not guaranteed that growing this strain can take a little bit longer than some other strains. But it’s worth the wait, considering that you are taking an old soul home that has been cultivated for thousands of years. 

Keep it at somewhere between 23 °C and 30 °C and it will not disappoint you.
