History of the Golden Teacher
Golden Teachers are the foremost example of the widely popular psilocybe cubensis strain of magic mushrooms. Other popular variants of this substrain are the B+, the Blue Meanie, Cambodian, and Alcabenzi.
It is difficult for mycological historians to trace the exact origins of the Golden Teacher magic mushroom, but it’s likely that it originates in and around Cuba in Latin America, like many of its other cubensis cousins. What is known is that the Golden Teacher began to enjoy mainstream popularity in the continental United States during the 1980s. During that time, spores passed between hands through many circles both academic and psychedelic. The mushroom became widely loved for its celebrated euphoric effects and the uplifting feelings users often walked away with. It was also widely touted for the comparative ease with which the mushrooms can be grown. The Golden Teacher is known as a highly resilient strain that can be adapted to many different environments.
Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, the Golden Teachers continued to enjoy widespread popularity. In fact, during those decades when information around mushrooms was less widely known, golden teachers were often the only mushrooms available to those looking for a psychedelic experience. Obviously, the times have come along much since then, however, the Golden Teacher remains one of the most popular mushrooms among users of all experience levels, and with good reason!
The Appearance of the Golden Teacher Magic Mushroom
The Golden Teacher has a very distinctive appearance – thin, white, veiny stalks and brown-to-gold caps depending on the growing conditions. The Golden Teacher can be susceptible to light bruising when stored, resulting in blue spots appearing on the stems or caps – but don’t fear; this bruising is purely cosmetic and will do nothing to adversely affect the quality of your trip.
The Golden Teacher also sometimes sports distinctive white spots that form on the caps during maturation as a result of condensation. Again, these white spots are purely cosmetic but an expert mycologist will be able to tell you a lot about how the mushrooms were grown just from looking at the golden teachers in question.
Golden Teachers for Recreational Use
Golden Teachers are very popular for recreational use because of their powerful euphoric feelings and the sense of connectedness that they cause which makes them really fun to use with friends.
If you’re planning to use Golden Teachers recreationally, we recommend first and foremost that you eat a light meal beforehand. This will help to alleviate the feelings of nausea that might come up for you. If you eat too heavily, it’s possible you won’t feel anything or will experience a lighter trip, so remember not to gorge yourself.
It’s a good idea to have a plan with your friends for what to do if one of your trips starts going dark. This could mean having some happy playlists or movies to put on, or just generally keeping an eye on each other and working together to keep the mood up.
Remember to give yourself a good clearance of at least 6 hours – one of the biggest buzzkills can be if you have obligations running up against you when all you wanna do is chill out and enjoy your trip!
Golden Teachers for Spiritual Use
Golden Teachers can also be used for more serious psychonauts, looking at having a more spiritually charged trip. If this is the case, we strongly recommend a couple of things.
1: Have an intention set when you go into it. This intention could be anything – but we recommend focusing on a specific area of your life in which you feel spiritually, mentally, or emotionally blocked. Examples could be: areas of anxiety, feelings of depression, lack of sense of purpose or enthusiasm for life, or addiction issues.
2: Meditate on it. Find a comfortable position, close your eyes, and try your best to relax your mind and focus on your breathing. You will start to notice thoughts coming up around issues that you had never considered before. You will start to discover new angles and ways to think about recurring problems in your life, and possibly find insights that can stick with you and improve your life for long after the duration of the trip.
If things start getting dark in this case, we recommend riding through that darkness. Sometimes the mushrooms take us to dark places because there is something we need to see – and having the bravery to forge through that darkness will help you to face your problems and become a better person.
We do recommend having someone you can call who has been pre-informed about what you’re doing as a lifeline, in case things get really serious – but keep your intention in mind, and remember you’re doing this for a reason. You’ll be glad you did!
Golden Teacher Side Effects & Safety Measures
Golden Teachers do come with some side effects. Like most members of the psilocybe cubensis family, you can expect feelings of nausea when you ingest the mushrooms. Additionally, you may find your senses of balance, and general reflexes and physical acumen to be diminished. This being the case, we STRONGLY recommend avoiding driving, or any kind of strenuous physical activity that carries any possibility of personal injury while you’re under the influence of magic mushrooms.
Additionally, people will sometimes experience negative emotions or experiences while tripping. This is absolutely a part of the experience, and kind of just comes with the territory of psychedelic drugs, but we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t forewarn you about it.
Microdosing Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms
Microdosing golden teacher shrooms can be a wonderful way to experience some of the positive and uplifting effects of magic mushrooms without delving too deep into the psychedelic experience. A microdose is typically any dose under 0.5g, usually 0.1g or 0.2g.
At this level, you should not really expect to “feel” the mushrooms in the same way you do with a macro-dose. Typically, people microdosing will do so on a schedule with “on” and “off” days, (e.g. “2 days ‘on’ (microdosing), then 1 day ‘off”) so that they can appropriately compare how they feel on and off days.
Microdosing can be a wonderful way of tapping more deeply into your own creative and productive energy. If you’re writing, you may find that those words flow more naturally – or that the brush strokes for a painting you’re working on just seem to come to you. Obviously, your experience may differ, but we’d love to hear reports of your own experiences on our forums!
Recommended Dosage for Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms
As with all magic mushrooms, the dosage we recommend varies depending on a number of different factors.
If it’s your first time using mushrooms of any kind, we recommend starting with a 1-1.5g dose for a light psychedelic experience. At this level, you can expect light visual hallucinations including seeing patterns and lights when you close your eyes. It’s also quite commonly an uplifting experience and will result in feeling more giggly or upbeat.
For a more intense dosage, a brave psychonaut can try something in the 2.5-4.5g range. At this level, you can expect to experience some mild nausea while your trip is “on the way up.” Once you start peaking, powerful visual hallucinations will accompany feelings of euphoria, and a deep sense of connectedness with nature.
It’s possible that your trip goes dark when you consume any kind of mushrooms in larger quantities, so we recommend taking appropriate precautions before engaging in any kind of heavy use.
