Where do they come from?

The Golden teacher magic mushroom is one of our favorite Magic Mushrooms because golden they are, and teach they will, as our good friend Yoda would say... :-)

There are many things that make the Golden Teacher a very popular strain of Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms.

No one knows exactly where the Golden Teacher magic mushroom originated, but we do know that they first appeared in the mid-1980s.  The mystery around this Cubensis mushroom is no doubt what makes it so special.  

Some believe a specimen of the Golden teacher was found growing wild in Florida, but in reality, it seems their exact origin is unknown. It is recognizable because of it golden caps with yellow speckles on it.  Compared to other Cubensis types, The Golden Teacher magic mushrooms are quite large and elegant in its appearance.

How do they grow?

The first flush of GT's will usually give you medium-sized magic mushroom, and later flushes will most certainly be larger and fatter.  The caps are about 5cm in diameter and pretty plane once they grow to their fullest.

These Golden Teachers are not as fast fruiting as other cubensis but because they grow even under less than optimal conditions, it really makes up for it, making them a favorite among first-time growers.

There are two ways to grow your Golden Teacher Mushrooms 

.

.

The first way is the easiest way: with the use of regular grow kits where all you need to do is add water and wait for the magic to occur.

The process for the regular Golden Teacher  magic mushroom grow kit is as follows:  

  1. Fill the grow box with water until the substrate is submerged and store the kit in the fridge for 12 hours.  
  2. After 12 hours, pour the excess water out of the grow box and place the grow box inside the bag we provide.
  3. Once every other day spray fresh water against the inside of the bag.
  4. Wait until mother nature does its work, usually 12 to 15 days :-)

The second way to grow Ecuadorian magic mushrooms is using spores.  Magic mushrooms spores are like the seeds of the magic mushrooms. You can choose to buy them in vials or in syringes.

The kind of high

Disclaimer: Psilocybin mushrooms are potentially illegal substances, and we do not encourage or condone the use of this substance where it is against the law. However, we accept that illegal drug use occurs, and believe that offering responsible harm reduction information is imperative to keeping people safe. For that reason, this guide is designed to ensure the safety of those who decide to use the substance. We do not encourage using this drug outside of a legal or traditional context.

The best thing about Golden Teachers magic mushrooms is that they offer a mildly high psychedelic effect, hence this is a gateway schroom for magic mushroom newbies.  They are also known for their shamanistic properties, or spiritual effects rather than solely ‘’tripping’’. 

When you consume them it gives you a feeling of enlightenment, they will help you connect to nature.  All this makes sense as it appears that their name also derives from their amazing ability to heal the mind and spirit.

Dosage

.

The typical dose for this magic mushroom is between 1 and 2.5 grams, as is reported from anonymous internet users on sites such as EROWID.  Although many advanced users will say these numbers are a small dose, they are reportedly safe for a beginner or someone who has never ingested magic mushrooms before.

Take a look at this EROWID GOLDEN TEACHER trip report by Nomad Kamda.  Although no one feels exactly the same thing when experimenting with magic mushrooms because so much depends on your mood and even the time of the day,  reading trip reports can give you some insight on what you could feel and experience.

Remember.... like all medicine the earth has given us it is important to show respect and refrain from abusing the amazing power that this Psilocybe Cubensis possesses.

Useful advice before you trip...

  • You must be over 18 to try Magic Mushrooms.
  • Enjoy this experience with a friend or Tripsitter who remains sober and who could help you in case of need.
  • Never exceed the recommended dose.
  • Smoking weed or taking other substance before or after taking magic mushrooms is dangerous and it can make the trip shorter. You must avoid mixing.
  • Drink a lot of water during the trip.
  • If you’re not feeling fine and you want to ' stop'  your trip, take vitamin C or something sweet (an orange juice would be perfect) to lower the effects.
  • When having a bad trip, the best you can do is to try to relax and talk about the experience, changing the setting also can work. 
  • It is not a game: be responsible.
  • Read our responsible use page.
