Koh Samui Magic Mushroom History
The Koh Samui magic mushroom is an incredible psilocybe cubensis that was originally discovered on an island off the east coast of Thailand. The island is the second largest island belonging to Thailand, second to Phuket. The island is named Koh Samui, which is where the psychedelic mushroom, Koh Samui, inherited it’s name. The Koh Samui magic mushrooms have been used by the inhabitants of the island for generations. The locals would use the Koh Samui psychedelic mushrooms for medicinal and spiritual practices.
Koh Samui Super Strain was introduced to the west and popularized by famous mycologist, John W. Allen. He traveled to Thailand in the early 1990s and began his research on psychoactive mushroom use on Koh Samui. While collecting data and information about the magic mushroom and its use on the island, Allen was also collecting spores from various species of magic mushrooms to other mycologists.
Eventually, with all of the research Allen was able to document during his time in Thailand, Allen published a paper titled “Psychoactive mushroom use in Koh Samui and Koh Pha-Ngan, Thailand” alongside fellow author Mark D. Merlin in 1992.
Growing Koh Samui Mushrooms
The psilocybe cubensis strain, Koh Samui, is an excellent strain for beginner cultivators. The Koh Samui is renowned for it’s resistance against contaminants, rapid colonization capabilities and above average potency. As a result, the Koh Samui was dubbed a super strain. You may find the exact strain elsewhere, but it may be called the Koh Samui Super Strain.
Due to the strains’ extensive resistance to contaminants and fast colonization, it has become a staple for many cultivators. For the most optimal and rapid colonization, provide temperatures between 28°C and 30°C. The spores of a Koh Samui can be cultivated with grains such as whole oats or more advantageously on whole rye berries.
As for mushroom substrate, Koh Samui is not particularly picky. Simply using coco coir would suffice, but if one is looking to cultivate the dense clusters that Koh Samui is known to have, we recommended using our optimized made in-house mushroom substrate.
Though the colonization recommended temperature is quite high, the recommended temperature for fruiting is slightly lower. The fruiting temperature is more favored in the range of 22°C and 25°C. The mushroom fruits quite quickly relative to other strains, generally resulting in hearty, thick growth.
Overall, the Koh Samui magic mushroom strain is great for all cultivators. Cultivators may be rewarded generously with little to no stress.
Appearance of the Magic Mushroom Koh Samui Strain
One of the Koh Samui’s magic mushroom apparent characteristics is the thick dense stems that develop. At times the fruits of the Koh Samui strain can be wider than they are tall. A fully matured and healthy Koh Samui magic mushroom stem can be as short as 90mm in height and grow upwards of 125+mm. Although this is quite lackluster for typical psilocybe cubensis strains, the Koh Samui undeniably makes up for it in thickness.
The caps of the Koh Samui psychedelic mushrooms are usually fairly flat once they reach maturity. At maturity, the average cap size is generally around 60 mm. They are generally orangey-brown that later on matures to a more light brown yellow. With closer examination, one may notice some of the caps may include minimal white spotting.
The prolific thickness of the Koh Samui magic mushroom can be exhibited even more so when they grow in clusters.
Psychedelic Effects of Koh Samui Mushrooms
The effects of the magic mushroom, Koh Samui, is well renowned. It has been used by locals and tourists for many generations. Psilocybe cubensis are not known to be tasty or easily edible, Koh Samui is no exception. For this reason, Koh Samui are popularly used in “mushroom shakes” in Thailand. These “mushroom shakes” are intended to cover up the earthy flavor of magic mushrooms, making it more enticing.
After ingesting Koh Samui magic mushrooms, around thirty minutes is when effects will begin to occur. Thirty minutes is the average, but effects could take place in as little as ten minutes. These powerful and potent mushrooms will uphold users with the feeling of pure euphoria and excitement. Along with the excitement is a burst of high energy, with some other effects such as mild to intense visual enhancements, fractals and geometric patterns. These amazing effects of the Koh Samui is part of the reason why it is used not only in Thailand but all over the world.
Psilocybin cubensis are edible but ingesting them does come with some negative side effects. Side effects may include increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, dizziness, lightheadedness, shivers, chills and possibly numbness of the mouth.
