The Orissa India Cubensis mushroom strain originated in the Bihar region of India, and was first collected by mycologist John Allen (who is also responsible for the discovery of several other Southeast Asian/Indian mushroom varieties). Spores Lab acquired this genetic in 2020, and since then we have further isolated and refined it. Spores Lab Orissa India now boasts fast-colonizing, exceptionally rhizomorphic mycelium (see product photo), and large, dense fruiting bodies with a beautiful reddish gold cap coloration.
The Orissa India magic mushroom strain generates excellent feedback online in regards to the experience elicited by consuming the these shrooms, however there are mixed reviews in regard to cultivation. Despite the mixed reviews on this varieties yields, you can be confident that purchasing an Isolate* Spores Lab Orissa India genetic will result in fast colonization, resistance to contamination, and great yield.
*Isolate genetics are Liquid Culture, Agar Culture, and Spawn.Spore Syringes and Spore prints are not isolates, so results from using these formats may vary.
