Koh Samui Mushrooms Effects & Potency

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.

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.
