MALABAR COAST CUBENSIS
The Malabar Coast cubensis is a Psilocybe cubensis magic mushroom growing naturally in India’s southwestern coast. Malabar, also known as “land of hills”, spreads along the Arabian sea with a geography ranging from rugged cool mountainous terrain, to rolling hills, and coastal plains.
The moist old growth forests and the tropical weather make a perfect habitat for the Malabar Coast cubensis to thrive in. Known to erupt from elephant dung, this exotic cubensis can grow impressively enormous fruit bodies.
If mycologists suggest that the nature of the substrate affects the quality of the potency, in a country where Ganesha, the elephant-headed Hindu god of beginnings is worshipped, the Malabar Coast cubensis specie’s special liaison with elephant dung surely intrigues.
Like most cubensis, the Malabar Coast cubensis is very resistant to contamination, yet, when cultivated indoor, it is said not to grow to its full potential. Like an animal in cage, it prefers the freedom of the wild.
Other elephant dung-loving species include Panaeolus africanus, Panaeolus tropicalis, Pan. antillarum, the Allen strain, the Orissa India cubensis, and the Elephant Dung cubensis. All these strains, also known as “zoo-doo”, spread worldwide through zoo compost originating from elephant and hippopotamus doo.
From the land of mountain chains where forests are older than the Himalayan mountains, the Malabar Coast cubensis, like the 8 wonders of the world, can only inspire a breath of fresh air, and a journey of awe.
