For those familiar with magic mushrooms, the Golden Teacher is no stranger.
Golden Teachers, renowned for their calming and philosophical nature, are much enjoyed. In a world where high-dose mushroom trips can feel overwhelming, a class with these is refreshing.
But, for those just breaking through and using psilocybin for the first time, it’s best to get to know the mushroom; and that’s precisely what we’re here for.
Our goal is to educate everyone on psychedelic mushrooms’ benefits, give a little background information and shed some light on each strain’s effects.
Here we go.
What is the Golden Teacher Mushroom?
The Golden Teacher mushroom strain derives from the P. Cubensis family. The Cubensis’ family is a staple of amateur and professional mushroom cultivators across the globe. This is due to their psychedelic effects and ease of growth.
Although history is a little murky, it’s presumed that Golden Teachers first made their way to Canada in the ’80s, which happens to coincide with the explosive demand for Thai Cubensis’ at the time.
Regardless of their history, it’s clear Golden Teachers are here to stay. They’re easily spotted, with their long, winding steams and golden caps. Once you’ve seen them a couple of times, there’s no mistaking their majesty.
As well as easily recognized visually, the effects of the Golden Teacher are unmistakable.
Here is what you can expect from a Golden Teacher Trip.
Golden Teacher Mushroom Effects
It’s hard to deny that psychedelics of all varieties are great teachers. But, at times, it’s easy to get lost in the visuals and the trip. Forgetting that the main point of entering the psychedelic state is to learn, heal and grow.
This is where Golden Teachers shine.
The Golden Teachers’ mission is to guide you to your inner self without being too noisy.
By all means, in high dose trips, as with any mushroom, a disconnect from reality is inevitable. In moderate doses(1 to 3 grams), Golden Teachers refrain from catapulting you into the next dimension. Instead, they gently focus your attention on the surrounding world.
Golden Teachers’ effects begin to show at the 45 minutes to an hour mark. They start with a warming sensation throughout the body. These sensations accompany a sense of wholeness and euphoria. Similar to smoking a potent indica.
As the euphoria starts to manifest, even more, it’s often said the connection with our senses solidifies. You’ll begin to notice the different pressures in the body, the feeling of “touch,” and how our physical selves occupy space. With the awareness of touch growing, so does the sensitivity to sight, smell and taste. It’s not unusual to see visuals based on music, as notes and waves dance underneath our eyelids.
Food also takes on a whole new meaning: the aroma lifting off the plate and taste buds dancing as they’ve never danced before. We highly suggest eating some sort of fruit, as the sweetness is a delicious rush.
With the body settling into a frenzy of sensations, the mind begins to fall into a state of hyper-presence. You’ll notice an awareness of each thought, their positive or negative patterns and how they manipulate our being. At the point, it’s an excellent time to relax with yourself or the other trip attendees and explore the mind.
Discuss or meditate on the feelings which you experience. How does the way you act on a day to day basis fulfill your innermost desires? Are there things in which you know you should change but have neglected? Has a recent change of habit or success brought joy? Or does sitting with nature, friends or even alone enlist a sense of unity with your surroundings?
No matter where in life we are, the Golden Teachers’ objective is to guide us back to our path.
Golden Teacher Mushroom Uses
Without a doubt, the Golden Teachers carry the intention of centring us. To lift the mental strain of day to day life and bring us back to basics. Whatever that may be at an individual level.
We suggest using these mushrooms in the afternoon and evening in an outdoor setting, preferably. While not required, psilocybin has a knack for pulling us into nature.
Which is why finding an area that’s relatively quiet of other people to at least venture for a stroll is a good idea. The change of scenery, sights and sounds of the environment often have therapeutic benefits.
Depending on the trip’s intensity and your level of experience, having a partner or team is a great option. It allows everyone to communicate what they feel, use the knowledge they’ve gained, and ease each other if the trip takes an unexpected turn.
As well, for people engaging in their first psychedelic experiences are best to have a trip sitter. These trip sitters should have some experience in using psychedelics and stay sober. Or one can hope they stay sober!

Golden Teachers – Eat Your Thinking Caps
Magic mushrooms are more popular than ever before. But with popularity comes responsibility. To ensure safe usage, we must educate ourselves on the effects, benefits, and potential side effects of taking hallucinogens. This is no different from the Golden Teachers.
Golden Teachers dissolve the fragmented lies of the ego. Leaving us with nothing to wear but the clothes we came into this world with. And in doing so, we can earnestly take a look at who we are and where we’re going.
