About the original Thailand Koh Samui
Another great Psilocybe Mushroom brought to us by Enthomycologist John Allen from his travels through Thailand. This beauty was picked in the town of Hua, Thanon on the island of Koh Samui. A huge thanks again to John Allen, a.k.a. Mushroom John for taking the time to seek out these mushrooms on his travels and bringing back spore prints.
This strain of cubensis from Thailand is a real winner. It's a very fast colonizing strain and it's usually a fast colonizer compared to other cubensis. It tends to grow some very thick mushrooms with large caps. Although they don't grow real tall, they make up for height in thickness. It's potency is phenomenal for a cubensis as we have heard nothing but great reports back from people that have experienced it's gift. Many friends have claimed it to be the most potent cubensis they've tried yet. Saying they are very "twisted" and ask for these specifically by name the next time they were ready to experience a journey. It's no wonder why in Thailand they have the full moon festival every month where thousands gather to eat this sacred mushroom and experience the magic.
