All about the Golden Teacher Magic Mushroom

The strain of the month for June is the Golden Teacher magic mushroom, let’s take a closer look at this Cubensis.  Make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this article where you will find details about the promotion!


Where do they come from?

The Golden teacher magic mushroom is one of our favourite 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.  



The kind of high

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 enlightment, 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.




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, but 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 onyour mood and even the time of the day,  reading trip reports can give you some insight on what you could feel and experience.

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.
