About Thai Elephant Dung Mushrooms

Thai Elephant Dung

The Thai Elephant Dung is a Psilocybe cubensis strain rumoured to have been discovered by John Allen. It hails from the island of Koh Samui, Thailand. As its name suggests, this mushroom was found growing on elephant dung, so it is little wonder that it grows to such an enormous size and potency!

On the other hand, it could be related to a variety of dung-loving psychoactive species commonly found in Thailand such as P. antillarumPanaeolus Cyanescens aka Blue Meanies, or Pan. tropicalis. All these strains, also known as “zoo-doo”, spread through zoo compost originating from elephant and hippopotamus doo.

One suggestion is that it could be Psilocybe samuiensis, also known as the Allen Strain, named after the ethno-mycologist John Allen. This strain was reportedly discovered growing in water buffalo dung on the island of Koh Samui in 1991. Another theory is that the Thai Elephant Dung strain could be related to other psychoactive species commonly found in Thailand, such as P. antillarum, Panaeolus cyanescens (also known as Blue Meanies), or Pan. tropicalis. These strains, often referred to as "zoo-doo," are known to spread through compost originating from the dung of elephants and hippopotamuses.
