There are a few strains in circulation marked “Hawaiian,” — and it isn’t clear if these are the same strain or not. Some have large dark caps, others tan-colored caps with white edges.
The first Hawaiian strain was the P.E.S. Hawaiian. P.E.S. stands for Plantasia Exotica Speciosa — a spore vendor based out of Honolulu.
Some experts suggest Hawaii isn’t an ideal location for magic mushrooms, and this strain must have come from somewhere else, but I beg to differ. There are several species of magic mushrooms, including Psilocybe cubensis, that have been discovered growing on the tropical islands of Hawaii.
I don’t recommend this strain if you care about the history and origins of the mushrooms you’re growing.
