In this article we’ll take a closer look at the legendary Golden Teacher magic mushroom and everything you need to know about this remarkable psychedelic.
What are dried golden teacher mushrooms ?
The dried golden teacher mushrooms is a popular strain of the Psilocybe Cubensis magic mushroom species. Psilocybe cubensis is the most prevalent magic mushroom species, containing two main active ingredients, psilocybin, and psilocin. Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychoactive and hallucinogenic compound, which, when taken, is converted in the body to psilocin. Psilocin is essentially the chemical with the psychoactive properties.
Despite its roaring popularity, dried golden teacher mushrooms are fairly new to the psychedelic scene. While the exact origins of the Golden Teacher are unknown, some believe a specimen of the Golden Teacher mushroom was found growing wild in Florida, appearing first during the mid-1980’s.
The only thing we really know about the Golden Teacher’s history and origin is that they were growing out in the wild, completely on their own, prior to being ‘discovered’ by us modern humans and first enjoyed. It is also entirely possible that dried golden teacher mushrooms were being used by Native American tribes long before that.
However, regardless of its origin, the Golden Teacher quickly became recognized as one of nature’s best psychedelic gifts – a well-earned praise that has remained true to this day!
Golden Teacher appearance & characteristics
The dried golden teacher mushrooms is highly recognizable due to its distinct appearance. This magical psychedelic boasts a long, winding stem and a wide golden cap with specks of yellow. Compared to most strains of Psilocybe cubensis, the Golden Teacher is quite large in size with a big stem and cap, as well as has a far more elegant appearance. These magic mushrooms also contain a hollow stipe which is thicker towards the base as well as gills which vary in colour, ranging from whitish to purple brown.
In addition, dried golden teacher mushrooms contain a fruiting body. This wonderfully unique psychedelic strain is known to produce very large fruitbodies (which is said to get even bigger in size in later flushes). These fruitbodies are considered to be very potent for a Psilocybe cubensis strain. Although Golden Teachers are not regarded as being as fast fruiting as other Psilocybe cubensis mushroom strains, the size of their fruitbodies more than makes up for it.
These sought-after psychedelics are also considered far easier to cultivate than other magic mushroom varieties. Part of this is owed to their specific structure – Golden Teacher magic mushrooms are incredibly hardy and are known for their even and steadfast growth, even under challenging and less than optimal conditions. This resilient characteristic undoubtedly makes the Golden Teacher a fan-favourite among both first-time and experienced growers.
Experienced growers have reported getting between 4 and 6 flushes out of their dried golden teacher mushrooms spores. That’s 4-6 harvests of premium-grade, textbook-quality ‘shroomery – which is definitely a yield worth celebrating! Even total beginners and novice shroomers are likely to get at least 2 good fruiting flushes out of this variety. When compared to other varieties of magic mushrooms, each Golden Teacher flush is known to produce a low quantity of exceptionally well-developed ‘shrooms.
Another major bonus of the Golden Teacher is that besides being easy to cultivate, they are also incredibly easy to maintain.
The following characteristics are almost always present in all Golden Teacher magic mushrooms:
• Large, golden caps
• Yellow speckles
• Large, sturdy stems
• 5 + inches tall
• 2 + inch cap diameter
• Easy bruising
Golden Teacher dosage & potency
Golden Teacher magic mushrooms have a mild to moderate level of potency.
The recommended dosage for dried Golden Teacher magic mushrooms is between 1gram and 2.5grams. 2 grams is suggested for most people to feel some effects, but nothing too overpowering or intense. With regards to more experienced shroomers, this dose may be too small to elicit any type of significant psychedelic effect – however, as it pertains to inexperienced or novice shroomers who have never ingested Golden Teachers before, the recommended dose of 1gram – 2.5grams allows for a certain margin of error to be established.
dried golden teacher mushrooms are a great choice for those looking to have their first psychedelic experience. Even though this strain of magic mushroom is considered pretty mild, it is strongly advised that you begin conservatively, especially as a first timer. Novice shroomers are recommended to begin their Golden Teacher psychedelic journey with a starting dose of 1gram and to wait for three hours before proceeding or taking any further steps.
For more experienced and avid shroomers seeking a more intense and profound psychedelic experience, a higher dosage would begin with 3 or more grams. If you are a highly experienced shroomer that is well versed in the effects of psychedelics (particularly as it pertains to Golden Teacher mushrooms), 4 – 5grams should be plenty to experience the Golden Teacher in full force. It is important to point out that these high doses are only recommended for highly experienced psychonauts and expert magic mushroom users.
dried golden teacher mushrooms typically have an onset time anywhere between 20 and 60 minutes and can last for a duration of 4 – 6 hours.
For any psychedelic experience there are generally 5 trip levels that can be experienced by trippers, ranging from relatively relaxed and chilled out to an extreme psychedelic trip. The effects of any psychedelic trip are highly dependent on the species and strain of magic mushrooms you are consuming, its level of potency, your own experience level with taking psychedelics as well as a variety of both internal and external factors.
Here are some general dosing guidelines:
• Microdose | 0.25g or less
• Low dose | 0.25g – 1g
• Moderate dose | 1g -2.5g
• High dose | 2.2g – 5 g
• Heroic dose | 5 g or more
