PES Hawaiian Dried Mushroom
Despite its name the PES Hawaiian strain did not actually orginate in Hawaii, as no psilocybe cubensis mushrooms grow naturally there. The name is derived from the hawaiiain based company (Pacific Exotica Spora) which was the first to offer spores of this strain. Vivid blue bruising appears wherever the mushroom is touched or impacted - an indicator of its elevated potency which is confirmed by many online reviews.
It is a consistently well-reviewed strain which elicits strong visual stimulation, feelings of euphoria, love, and unity, deep vibration or "buzzing" felt throughout the body, however notably less deep introspection or philosophical ideation. This makes it a great "social" strain to enjoy with friends, but slightly less well-suited to therapeutic or spiritual use.
Its visual characteristics exemplary of a "classic" psilocybe cubensis - medium/large fruiting bodies with thick, dense stalks and a golden caramel to tan colored cap, often with a dark spot in the centre of the cap.
