Psilocybe cubensis Tranksei - The High Guide (1)

STRAIN | S.A.T. aka African Transkei

Psilocybe cubensis Tranksei originates from the coast of South Africa. Said to be quite a bit more intense than most other strains, reports from users include both closed eye and open eye visuals. The Transkei is a mushroom for experienced users, as it packs a bit more psilocybin punch than many other species. As with most psilocybin-producing fungi, African Transkei produces in the psychonaut a sense of connection to the world and the people in it. They are also known for being sensation-enhancing mushrooms that can alter the way you perceive sound and visuals, produce geometric shapes, as well as ‘dancing lights’ perceptions.

SPECIES | Psilocybe cubensis

ORIGIN | The African Transkei is better known as the S.A.T. (South African Transkei), and is thought to be the only strain that originates in this traditionally hot and dry part of the world. The mushroom was discovered at low elevations on the Southeast coast of the country where it meets the Indian Ocean. Considered a “modern strain,” the mushroom was first identified in 2002. There is little information about its lineage before this.

POTENCY | African Transkei shrooms are especially potent, and can produce both closed and open eye visuals described as dancing lights and geometric shapes. Higher doses can have a profound effect on physical ability and, as with any high dose trip, can produce periods of dissociation.

INTENTION | As this strain is somewhat more potent than others, it’s important to be clear about your intentions going in. Depending on your dose, you may just be taking a small amount to enhance a quiet night in, or a “heroic” dose (5g or more), which will send you off-planet. Regardless of your intention, always make sure that you’re using mushrooms in a safe environment. The African Tranksei is not the best choice for beginning psychonauts or for those using mushrooms to explore mental health concerns.

EFFECTS | The African Tranksei is known for producing both closed and open-eye hallucinations. As with most psilocybin-producing fungi, Transkei Cubensis also produces in the psychonaut a sense of connection to the world and the people in it. These shrooms are also known for their sensation-enhancing effects, altering the way that sounds and touches are experienced, though at higher doses this can cause balance problems. They also produce the well-known “dancing lights” geometric patterns that accompany some strains of psilocybin mushrooms. At higher doses, some users have reported synesthesia, the feeling of being able to see through time, and dissociation from “consensus reality.”

APPEARANCE | S.A.T.s are medium in size. Younger mushrooms produce orange or brown caps, though these fade to almost white as the mushroom ages. The stem is off-white and quite gnarled as a result of the drying process.

DURATION | Onset begins 10 and 40 minutes after ingestion with effects lasting 3 to 6 hours depending on dose.

DOSE | African Transkei is known for its intensity by experienced trippers, so should be approached cautiously by novice or first-time psychonauts. The shroom is known for slight visual hallucinations at lower doses, while the higher doses can cause dissociation and wild hallucinations. S.A.T.s are not recommended for new users, and experienced users should exercise caution with this potent medicine.

2g – Some users have reported a warping of their visual field, time warping, synesthesia, and hallucinations with the eyes closed or open.

3.5g – Some users describe a loss of physical balance while walking, intricate and delicate pastel visuals that sparkle, an overwhelming feeling of peace and possibility.


  • Psilocybin-containing mushrooms are not recommended for pregnant or lactating women and children. Consult with your doctor if you’re taking antidepressants including SNRI’s, which actually appear to reduce the effect of psychedelics and have been reported to impact how each dose affects you. Note: the potency of individual mushrooms can vary remarkably, even within members of the same species. No dose is going to be exactly the same, even when the amounts are measured very carefully.
