The Koh Samui strain was first classified by mycologist John Allen, on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand. Allen then proceeded to isolate and refine the genetic for several years, creating the Koh Samui Super Strain.
Koh Samui is consistently well reviewed on multiple forums (like Erowid and Shroomery) in terms of both cultivation and usage. Effects include visual and bodily stimluation, feelings of euphoria and connection to those around you, and periods of deep philosophical thought.
Their physical characteristics exemplify why this strain is called “super strain”. Thick, dense, and long white stalks, and beautiful golden to light yellow caps. KSSS often display a distinctly lighter coloration than other cubensis strains from the same geographic area. This strain is moderate potency, however has above average yield, resistance to contamination, and colonization speed.
