Koh Samui is a popular strain of magic mushrooms thanks to its fast-growing, contaminant-resistant mycelium.
The mushrooms fruit quickly and colonize rapidly, resulting in thick, healthy growth. Although they don’t grow very tall, Koh Samui mushrooms are known to proliferate in very dense clusters.
People report that the high from these mushrooms is formidable but certainly not the strongest available. The psychedelic experience from this shroom can be confusing or disorientating with strong visual hallucinations. The high is also described as being high-energy and euphoric.
Quantitative analysis on this mushroom strain suggests an average psilocybin content of around 0.63%. Total tryptamine levels (psilocybin, psilocin, baeocystin, and other related compounds) average at around 0.7% for this strain.
For reference, we consider the average Psilocybe cubensis mushroom to contain somewhere between 0.5% and 0.9% total tryptamines (dried weight).
The Koh Samui magic mushroom is often many people’s first experience with psychedelic shrooms when vacationing in Thailand. They’re especially popular in the form of magic mushroom shakes during the infamous Full Moon parties.
