The Malabar strain was originally sourced from the southwestern Malabar Coast of India. It is renowned for producing fruiting bodies (mushrooms) of enormous size.
It is a moderately potent strain similar in effect to Transkei with a quicker onset. Effects include feelings of euphoria, love, uncontrollable laughter, bodily vibration, and light visual hallucination.
Its visual characteristics are often dense, thick stems, sometimes wider than a forearm, with large broad caps usually darker near the center, fading towards the edge.
