John Allen discovered this strain in the Chitwan region of Nepal, high in the mountains. Supposedly, three original specimens were found outside the “mushroom season,” growing in a patch of what appeared to be a rhino or elephant dung.
After its collection, the spores took a while to start circulating the market. For a long time, Chitwan spores were hard to come by. Now, Chitwan genetics are available in the form of prints and spore syringes from various vendors.
Overall, this is a well-balanced strain. With medium-sized mushrooms of above-average potency, the possibility of multiple dense flushes, and reasonable contamination resistance, it’s a good choice for most shroom enthusiasts.
