Golden Teacher Mushroom
golden teacher mushroom (Psilocybe Cubensis Golden Teacher) is one of our best-selling strains. The golden teacher mushroom are known for their light golden caps and for their popularity amongst new and veteran psychonauts.
This special version of the golden teacher mushroom is grown by a master grower and then using a proprietary freeze-drying method dried to a very different product than what most customers are used to. The special drying method retains the mushrooms beautiful shape and creates an airy, rice-puff like texture to the touch.
When you consume this psilocybin mushroom the texture will be like a rice-puff or Cheetos. The special method of drying this magic mushroom provides 2 benefits; 1. higher concentration of psilocybin content and 2. Appetizing texture and taste.
After 10-40 minutes of consuming Golden Teacher magic mushrooms you will feel your mood enhanced with euphoria and excitement. Depending on dosage you will experience mild to intense visual enhancements. Things may seem like they are breathing, the nature around you will feel more alive and you will find yourself in introspective thought. Music and art will look and feel different and you will have a higher appreciation and you may relate the music or art to yourself on a more personal level. The most common museum dose (0.5-1.5g) and moderate dose (2-3.5g) should provide you with a 3-6 hour trip. Please read our FAQ section for more details.
Golden Teacher is of roughly average potency, as P. cubensis strains go[i], and trips are often shorter than average, only two to four hours[ii]—an advantage for beginners who don’t know yet whether they’ll like the trip. Users report a very calm, relaxing experience with only mild visuals but a strong body component.
How much the user should take depends on what kind of experience the user wants (light, moderate, intense, or microdose), the user’s body weight, and whether the mushroom is fresh or dried. It’s possible to calculate an estimated dose[iii] for P. cubensis use, and since Golden Teacher is of moderate potency, that dose will probably be about right. But people and mushrooms both vary, so individual users will still have to do some trial-and-error.
Growing Golden Teacher
Golden Teacher is among the easiest P. cubensis strains to grow, since it will fruit heavily on almost any substrate and even in suboptimal conditions. It’s a good choice for first-time growers. The only drawback is that this strain is somewhat slower to fruit than most[iv]. Colonization time is about two weeks, though it’s best to wait an extra week after colonization seems complete, just in case[v].
Golden Teacher, like most P. cubensis strains, will grow well by virtually any method, although the method must be carried through properly; growers who try out hybrid teks—and don’t have the experience to guide such experimentation—often end up with poor results.
Buying vs. Growing Golden Teacher
Is it better to grow magic mushrooms like Golden Teacher or buy them? Actually, there are advantages and disadvantages for each.
Even the question of legality is a bit of a toss-up, for while growing might present less risk of prosecution for some people in some jurisdictions, in others buying is safer[vi].
In most places, possessing psilocybin in any form (including the form of a mushroom) is illegal, but since spores do not contain psilocybin, they are legal to buy and sell, meaning that a grower can buy everything necessary to begin a run without breaking the law. Allowing the spores to germinate is a crime, but nobody but the grower needs to know it’s happening.
But there are places where possession of spores is also illegal, and there are places where possession of psilocybin for personal use has been decriminalized. In either case, the advantage of growing is lessened.
Legality aside, buying is quicker, simpler, and can be done a dose at a time—a definite advantage for novices who don’t know yet if they’ll ever want a second dose. On the other hand, growing is, per dose, substantially cheaper. And it’s easy to save spores for starting the next grow by just letting a few mushrooms mature and then taking a spore print. There are strains that are hard to collect spores from, but Golden Teacher isn’t among them.
