The Hawaiian strain is about as typical as they come. They’re hard to differentiate from strains like Golden Teacher, Australian, or most Mexican strains — all of which feature the classic golden or light-brown colored caps, thick stems, and moderate-sized mushrooms forming in dense clusters.
Effects-wise, the Hawaiian strain is pretty average for a Psilocybe cubensis. The psilocybin levels aren’t particularly high, but these shrooms still produce remarkable psychedelic effects in doses of just 2 grams or higher (dried mushrooms).
This is an excellent strain for beginners (growers and users alike).

History of The PES Hawaiian Magiska Svampar
The true history and origin of the Hawaiian strain are, like many other strains of magic mushrooms, a bit of a mystery.
We do know that the most common type of Hawaiian strain, known as the PES Hawaiian, comes from the Pacific Exotica Spora (PES). PES was one of the early magic mushroom distributors and growers based in Hawaii.
Regardless of its complete history, Hawaiian magic mushrooms can be found pretty much everywhere these days. There’s no clear distinction between strains sold as “PES Hawaiian” and just “Hawaiian.”
Hawaiian Strain Potency & Psilocybin Content
Despite the popularity of the Hawaiian strain, especially considering how many different stores online keep it in stock, there isn’t a lot of concrete data regarding its specific psilocybin content.
However, based on user reviews over the years, it’s clear the Hawaiian strain is pretty typical in terms of effects. It’s unlikely this strain will completely blow your mind at the standard 2–3 gram dose.
We estimate the total tryptamine concentration (psilocybin, psilocin, and baeocystin) falls somewhere between 0.5 and 0.9% (dried weight).
With a light body high and a deep mind-expanding experience, you can expect bright, colorful visuals and a feeling of expansion and oneness.
Where to Buy Hawaiian Magic Mushrooms Spores
The Hawaiian strain is available pretty much anywhere that sells magic mushrooms these days.
Places like Spores 101 and others, alongside more esoteric websites like Smartfic.com and Zamnesia, will offer growing kits of the Hawaiian strain at surprisingly low prices, alongside Ralphster and most other online retailers.
You can also find them in spore trading circles as well, such as the /r/sporetraders/ subreddit.
How to Grow Hawaiian Magic Mushrooms
Growing your own mushrooms requires some practice, but it’s easier than you might expect — the Hawaiian strain is an excellent option to get started with because of its forgiving nature and decent yields.
The best place to get started is to order a magic mushroom grow kit from an established shroom distributor. This cuts out the need to worry about preparing and sterilizing substrate and incubation. You jump straight to the fruiting phase, where you can watch your mushrooms grow and harvest when they look ready.
If you decide to grow this strain at home, aim to keep your fruiting chamber at a balmy 82 Fahrenheit or so, and ensure that the relative humidity is at least 90% in your growing space to encourage healthy mushroom growth.
After it gets settled, however, you can expect a prodigious crop, with plenty of attractive and recognizable Hawaiian shrooms bursting out from your growing medium.
