Psilocybe Samuiensis

When traversing through Southeast Asia, particularly in Thailand, you’re likely to see not just towering ancient temples. It’s highly likely that you will run into the Psilocybe samuiensis, a psychedelic mushroom that contains the hallucinogenic compounds psilocybin and psilocin.

Psilocybe Samuiensis Strain Guide

This magic mushroom is distinguishable because of its small cap that’s roughly 7mm to 15mm in diameter. It’s usually conic to convex in shape with a small, nipple-like center. The cap is sticky with a membrane that can be easily separated.

Psilocybe samuiensis’ cap also changes based on its own level of moisture. It’s commonly reddish-brown when moist but takes on a lighter brown color when dry. This magic shroom can grow as tall as 6.5cm high and as 1.5cm thick with a slight thickening towards the base. The stem, or stipe, is hollow, whitish, and covered with white fibrils.

When injured, this psychedelic fungus turns a bluish purple color wherever it was handled. Its odor and taste are slightly similar to grain.

When analyzed, it was revealed that the fruit bodies contain modest amounts of psilocybin and psilocin ranging from 0.023% to 0.90% and 0.05% to 0.81% respectively (dry weight). It also contains smaller amounts of another psychoactive agent, baeocystin, measured at 0.01% to 0.05%.

Psilocybe Samuiensis Habitat

Psilocybe samuiensis was first seen in soil which contains both sand and clay in a village calld Ban hua Thanon in Koh Samui, Thailand. Since then, it has been spotted across the country’s Ranong Province and also at Angkor Wat in Siem Riap, Kampuchea. It prefers to grow in rice paddies during the monsoon season from early July to early September.

Psilocybe Samuiensis and Magic Mushroom Tourism in Thailand

While shrooms aren’t legal in Thailand, there are several places in the country where you can purchase and even enjoy them at bars without a problem. There’s nothing like having a fun travel experience, tripping out on magic mushrooms while you’re hallucinating by an exotic beach.

One of the reasons why foreigners enjoy magic mushrooms in Thailand is because they are sold over-the-counter at the places which will be mentioned later on. It’s advised that when you buy shrooms at the bar, enjoy it with your friends and enjoy a nice, little trip while watching the sunset.

Koh Phangan

First is Koh Phangan. The Psilocybe amuiensis is popular here although you can still find places where they sell other strains such as the more popular Psilocybe cubensis.

Finding a place to buy magic mushrooms in Koh Phangan is easy. Find your way up the legendary “Mellow Mountain” in Haad Rin Beach. This is the location of the legendary Full Moon Party. This is also where you can slurp down a genuine magic mushroom shake.

They have music, a full bar, seats, and a beautiful sunset where you can trip out on the place’s cool, laidback vibe. Most foreigners have their first taste of magic mushrooms in Koh Phangan and it’s an awesome experience.

Koh Phi Phi

Koh Phi Phi made a name for itself as one of the region’s craziest party islands. “The Only Bar” in Koh Phi Phi is known to cater to both local and foreign shroomers. For 1000 Baht, you will be well on your way down the rabbit hole.

If you want to take things to the next level, why don’t you add a crazy party atmosphere to your hallucinogenic experience? There have been several stories of people who tripped out on Phi Phi and they reportedly had a great experience.

Koh Chang

If you’re looking for a destination with considerably less traffic, Koh Chang is the way to go. Shroomers who want to go on introspective journeys say this is one of their favorite places. While mushrooms are harder to come by in Koh Chang, the Lonely Beach’s Ting Tong Bar is a popular place to get a magic mushroom shake usually made from Psilocybe samuiensis.


Travelers who find themselves in Northern Thailand can expect to see magic mushrooms in Pai. There are dozens of things to do in Pai and what better way to end an exhausting day of outdoor activities than to trip out on magic mushroom shakes from the famed Sunset Bar? It’s also an ideal spot to meet fellow travelers, relax, and enjoy a setting sun through hallucinating eyes.

Koh Samui

And wrapping up this list is Psilocybe samuiensis’ location: Koh Samui. While it is easy to get shrooms or magic mushroom shakes in Koh Samui, a popular destination is “The Rock Bar.” It’s a big tree house on the beach.

Even if you’re not looking to trip, you should still visit the place for its wonderful vibes.

How to Make Magic Mushroom Shake

Are you craving for a taste of Thailand and magic mushrooms?

You don’t need to go to Thailand to enjoy a magic mushroom shake in an exotic location. You can make one at home and even if you’re not surrounded by exotic sights, the shroom shake will mask the usually bitter taste of magic mushrooms which makes your effort worth it.

Online stores such as Truffle Magic sells magic mushroom grow kits and magic truffles which are even more potent than the Psilocybe samuiensis growing in the wild.

There are many ways to make different types of magic mushrooms shakes but this method below is a personal favorite among shroomers.

For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 5 cup lemonade
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup raspberry sherbert
  • 2 doses of dried magic mushrooms or magic truffles


  1. Put all the liquid ingredients in a blender.
  2. Once you’ve mixed them thoroughly, add all the frozen ingredients.
  3. Blend at pulse for 40 seconds.
  4. Blend at full power until the shake looks smooth.
  5. Take your dried magic mushrooms and powder them using a coffee grinder. If you don’t have one, simply take a Ziploc bag, but them inside and pound them.
  6. Once your magic mushrooms are fully pulverized, add them to your blender.
  7. Blend for another ten seconds.
  8. Transfer to your favorite glass and enjoy!

This method makes two servings.
