This psilocybe mushroom was originally found by author John Allen while in Cambodia filming some of the psilocybe mushrooms that grow naturally throughout SE Asia.

John Allen and his film crew said they found it to be very smooth and strong for a cubensis as well. These cubensis along with some Panaeolus Cambodgeniensis grow in the cattle (brahmans) dung around the Angkor Wat Temple at Siem Reap, Cambodia. They actually grow throughout most of the country but that is the location these spores were collected. We find it interesting they were found in a high tourist area, just calling out to be picked by humans. Although not surprising as most psilocybe mushrooms are found where people thrive, not out in the a secluded forest like most gourmet mushrooms are found.

In Cambodia, while observing this fungi in nature, John noticed this cubensis loves heat! The spores have become quite popular with the asians as an aphrodisiac as well. All around a popular mushroom.

It's hard to know what is true or hype in the microscopy world, but I finally gave these a shot due to the Angkor Wat association and reading rave reviews by respected folks over the years. Spore quality from Hawk was pristine as always. You never know with MS, but myc could be more aggressive. Consistently beautiful/unique phenotype. Very resistant to contamination. I found it energizing to observe under the microscope and a very visual and distinct study. Overall, I'm really grateful that Hawk has kept this classic in the inventory, as it is very unique. It's just not for me. I would suggest B+ or Arenal Volcano as well-rounded choices.

Reply from The Hawk: Thanks but I'm actually thinking to remove the Cambodia strain from the catalog winter 2022.

This was my first negative experience with, and my third order. Got two on a bitcoin promo. Syringes arrived very quickly as usual from, however, while preparing for microscopy, I noticed I could not shake the clumps apart. Sometimes, hyphea bonds, nno big deal. However obsevation under my scope, and repeated experiments with a sterile substrates liquid cultures, and agar revealed the spores were contamiated by what I believe was Stachybotrys chartarum. I still plan to use this store again.

Cambodian strain arrived super quick and despite it being near 100 degrees where i live, the spores were clumpy, healthy and happy when i got them. I am BEYOND satisfied with Hawks genetics and this miraculous strain.
