Golden Teacher

The Golden Teacher magic mushroom is a classic psilocybe cubensis strain first being cultivated for recreational use in the late ’80s. Exactly where, who and how it was first discovered no one knows, but some claim Golden Teachers were found growing wild in Florida in the early ’80s. Being relatively easy to grow, once it showed up it spread and became one of the most popular magic mushroom strains in the world. 

Compared to other Psilocybe cubensis strains, the Golden Teacher magic mushrooms are quite large and have long, winding stems, giving them a rather elegant look compared to the other cubensis varieties. Their wide, shiny yellow-gold caps with yellow-white speckles give these mushrooms the first half of their name.

Golden Teachers are considered a great introductory strain for magic mushroom newbies. This is because, compared to the other Psilocybe cubensis strains, Golden Teachers offer a somewhat milder psychedelic trip while offering users deep, revelatory feelings of enlightenment and higher wisdom. You come back from a Golden Teacher trip a little more aware of “how it all works”,  like getting to see behind Life’s curtain, at least that’s how it feels.

Many experience a deeper connection with nature and other people, making Golden Teachers a favourite mushroom strain for those who want to dive into deep conversation and spiritual discovery sharing profound thoughts with fellow psychonauts.
