The Golden Teacher magic mushroom strain is a psychedelic magic mushroom species whose main active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Also known as Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms, the Golden Teacher magic dried mushrooms were first found in the 1980s. It is loved by many for its ability to induce meaningful, insightful experiences and euphoric feelings consistently. It grows with a distinct Golden caramel cap that is sometimes dotted with yellow and often a triangular bump (umbo in mycological terms) at the cap’s center. The shining yellow-gold caps and wise teachings it gives are why this mushroom strain is called Golden yellow.
Golden Teacher mushrooms originated and quickly became the most popular strain of mushrooms. It is known for its golden caps and unique shamanistic capabilities and is very popular due to its comfortable, rapid growth. Compared to other strains of fresh mushrooms, Golden Teacher usually has more elegant looking large stems and caps. The traditional way of consuming the dried mushrooms is to chew very well, swallow them and drink your favorite beverage to wash them down. However, there are two other recipes for consuming these dried mushrooms. The first recipe merely blends the dried mushrooms in a blender with your favorite fruits or vegetables, and the second one is to use dried mushrooms with 1 cup of hot water.
Once consumed, the effects may take 10 to 40 minutes to be felt. The feeling can last anywhere between 3 and 6 hours, depending on the individual and dose. Everyone’s physiology and metabolism are different, and unique brain chemistry, surroundings, emotional state, and body size play a significant role in how each individual might respond to mushrooms dried. So, if it is your first time or you are significantly upping your dosage, select a safe, comfortable, and, if possible, familiar place. Users should expect different possible effects such as mystical, euphoric, and revelatory feelings.
Like all tryptamines, psilocybes often cause “the mushroom yawns,” which increases as it begins to peak. However, the feeling in the rest of the body is not tired but energetic. Some users who overdosed(over 3 grams) experienced negative effects such as time distortion, hallucinations both when eyes are closed or open, and synesthesia (i.e., “seeing” sounds and “feeling” colors). It is important to stay hydrated always, especially if you’re outdoors or doing any activity like running. Honey ginger tea is also great to counteract any possible nausea. Avoid using these dried mushrooms if you’re pregnant, and don’t mix with other drugs, especially alcohol.
