Golden Teacher (short for GT Mushroom) is a popularly grown variety of Psilocybe cubensis, one of the most famous magic mushrooms in the world. The name reflects the fawn and golden tops of this species (wild P. cubensis is usually slightly darker) and the information many users receive.
It is not clear whether the golden teacher is actually more educational than the other types. Many users look for travel quality, visual elements, physical elements, and more. I agree it depends on the type of mushroom, but cubes are called cubes (varies in strength). Either way, P. cubensis is known to cause a variety of pleasurable “symptoms” including euphoria, tolerance, and hallucinations, and less pleasurable “symptoms” such as nausea and sometimes anxiety. Serious side effects are rare but possible. Although there is some evidence that psilocybin, a psychoactive substance found in psilocyb mushrooms, may have medicinal value, it is still illegal in most jurisdictions (one reason not much research has been done).
Besides Psilocybe cubensis, there are many psychoactive Psilocybe, as well as some hallucinogenic species of the genus Amanita, which contain very different active ingredients and thus offer a completely different type of travel. All of these can be called ‘magic’, but when most people say witchcraft or Golden Teacher Mushrooms they mean the wild or cultivated species P. cubensis as the golden teacher.
Golden Teacher is about moderate intensity, as the P. cubensis strain does, and runs are often shorter than average. Only 2-4 hours – an advantage for beginners who don’t know whether to keep or not yet consolation. I love to travel. Users report a very quiet and comfortable experience with a soft image but strong body components.
The amount the user should consume will depend on the type of experience the user wants (light, medium, intense or micro-dose), the user’s weight, and whether the mushrooms are fresh or dry. It is possible to calculate an estimated dose for the use of P. cubensis, and this dose is likely to be accurate as Golden Teacher is moderately effective. However, humans and fungi are all different, so individual users will still have to experiment a bit.
However, check out our General Magic Mushroom Dosage Guide to find the dosage that’s right for you. You can also try the Magic Mushroom Dosage Calculator, where you can choose from 6 dosage levels including micro-dose and hero-dose.
Golden Teacher’s popular intake methods are Lemon Tek and Shroom Tea.
Growing golden teacher
Golden Teacher is one of the easiest P. cubensis species to grow as it produces abundant fruit in almost all environments and under the best conditions. It is a good choice for beginner growers. The only downside is that this strain bears fruit slightly slower than most. Colonization time is about two weeks, but it’s best to wait an extra week after colonization has finished, just in case.
The golden teacher, like most species of Psilocybe cubensis, can grow well in almost any way, but the method must be used correctly. Breeders who have tried hybrid ticks but are inexperienced in conducting such experiments often end up with poor results.
