Golden Mammoth Psilocybe cubensis is our proprietary Mega You Grow® MYG Magic Mushroom strain.  A variation of the purest Stropharia cubensis Cuban culture, Golden Mammoth was developed decades ago by our head mycologist specifically for ease of use and purity. Golden Mammoth is a robust strain, developed through years of mycological expertise, as a unique Stropharia cubensis Cuban x Golden Teacher strain, to showcase the best qualities of each strain. Golden Mammoth was first brought to market in th late 90’s and originally sold on our sister site, Sporepod.

Our mycologists developed and isolated the Golden Mammoth magic mushroom strain in order to maximise the mushrooms large size and strong resistance to disease, defects and contamination. Golden Mammoth is a genetically pure strain which offers mycologists the greatest ease of use due to it’s consistency in robust colonization, vigorous fruiting and durability. We maintain and re-vitalize our Golden Mammoth Psilocybe cubensis master cultures through careful cloning techniques to keep our strains highly active and genetically pure.
