Magic Mushrooms in Asia
Here are some Asian countries where you can find mushrooms.
In Korea, magic mushrooms are used by shamans to induce visions. There are three major mushrooms that can be found in the Hak-Dong and Geoje-Si areas.
First is the Gymnopilus junonius. Also called the Spectacular Rustgill or Laughing Gym, this orange mushroom is large and can be found on logs, tree stumps, and bases. In Korea, it is called “Hwanggalsaek Michigwang-i Beoseot” or “bronze clown mushroom.”
You may also find the Panaeolus cyanescens in the country. This potent mushroom is part of the Bolbitiaceae family and is common in Africa and other Asian countries like Indonesia, Thailand, and Cambodia. Finally, the last common type of mushroom is Panaeolus cinctulus. Also called subbs, the mushroom became widely popular globally because it was so common in California. This type of mushroom grows on well-fertilized gardens or on horse dung.
