Tidal wave shrooms are a potent variety of magic mushrooms that owe their name to the wavy, water-like edges of mature caps. This mushroom strain has gained popularity among experienced psychonauts for its powerful effects and high psilocybin content. As with all psychedelic mushrooms, it is important to find a good set and to start with low doses when trying this strain for the first time.
Psilocybe cubensis is one of the easiest magic mushroom species to cultivate and this particular strain is especially fast-fruiting. It also has an inherent resistance to environmental contamination that makes it easy for beginners to get bountiful flushes if they take proper precautions.

The genetics of tidal wave come from both B+ and Penis Envy, two strains that are highly regarded by growers and spore sellers for their quality and high potency. The combination of these traits made for a hybrid that has the best of both worlds: fast fruiting and an easy-to-grow temperament.
While most magic mushroom strains clock in at around one percent tryptamine content, the tidal wave samples that won the 2021 Psilocybin Cup (yes, there’s such a thing) measured as high as 3.82%. This is more than double the average of most Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms, and it’s no surprise that tidal wave shrooms have garnered so much interest.
It’s possible to purchase tidal wave spores online from reputable vendors such as Spores 101, Miracle Farms and High Desert Spores. These spores will grow into robust and vigorous adult mushrooms that can be harvested for a long-lasting and rewarding experience. As with any psychedelic mushroom, it’s important to follow all of the harm reduction guidelines and to take only as much as is needed.
