Pink Buffaloes in Thailand – A Strain Discovered by John W. Allen
In a rice field in Thailand, a man named John “Mushroom John” Allen found the Pink Buffalo genetic of psilocybin mushrooms. A writer known for his works (and lifelong obsession with) fungi of all kinds, legend has it that he discovered the strain in a field where a sacred pink buffalo had been seen. This is an excellent psilocybe cubensis strain to study. In the wild, as Mushroom John found it in that field, it produces mid-to large-sized fruits, multiple flushes can occur if the humidity is very high.
