Koh Samui Strain (KSS) Spore Swab Pack


If you want to buy Koh Samui Strain Swabs, be cautious as KSS spores are “active spores” which are for microscopy or artistic purposes. We will not complete your order if you contact us regarding the cultivation of active spores. Similarly, for legal reasons if you mention cultivating active spores or ask for cultivating advice, you will be subsequently banned from the site.

These spores are from a species that produces psilocybin and psilocin. For legal reasons they can only ship to 47 out of the 50 United States. Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, and Georgia.

Sonoran Spores acquires these spores and photos from outside, trusted sources in a legal manner.  Further, Sonoran Spores does not condone or participate in the cultivation of psilocybin/psilocin producing or “active” species.  Sonoran Spores also does not have any mycelium or fruiting bodies of psilocybin and psilocin producing species.  We will not sell any products containing this so do not ask.

Spore Visibility Disclaimer: When you buy KSS mushroom swabs, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore syringes will look the same visibly.  Some may have some black clumps or specs in them and others may appear clear to the naked eye. Despite these visible differences, spore syringes are still made to be viable for microscopy research.

Koh Samui Strain Information

We are excited to offer our Koh Samui Strain (KSS) mushroom swabs to the community! KSS is one of the mushrooms we have that stem from Thailand (see Ban Sa Phang Kha andThai Elephant Dung) and was introduced by the famous Josh Allen.It just happens to be named after the small island it was found on that is located right off Thailand’s coast. Its important not to confuse with Koh Samui Super Strain (KSSS) which is only available as swabs and are a little more advanced spores. 
KSS is often mislabeled throughout the spore world as most people will sell it as its more advanced isolate KSSS. There is a key difference in the mushrooms as KSS resembles a more traditional cubensis while KSSS is very short, fat, and hard to collect spores from. This makes our KSS syringes great for novice learners who are looking to study spores from this region, without having to study difficult genetics. 
KSS fruits are much different from their KSSS counterparts. To begin, they do grow vertically unlike KSSS which just grows fat. But KSS does not grow very tall and it can be considered short to other cubensis. They have convex caps that flatten completely in growth. And they also drop spores prints which KSSS does not, hence why these can have syringes. They are incredibly fast colonizers and very contaminant resistant. Overall makes them great for beginners or mycologists who like to collect strains from the great Josh Allen.
