Everything to know about Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms
Known as “golden tops” mushrooms, Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms is a species of mushroom that is a potent source of the hallucinogenic agent psilocybin. P. cubensis are one of the most widely distributed hallucinogenic edible fungus types in the world and one of the most potent.
Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms are also known as goldies, cubes, cubies, boomers, caps, and gold caps and were first recorded in the scientific literature in 1906 in Cuba. Golden tops are one of the many mushroom types that grow directly on the manure of various ruminants like cows and goats. They often grow in tropical or subtropical environments, like South America, Central America, Mexico, and the southern and southwestern US.
When it comes to mushroom hunting and cultivation, the Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms have become increasingly popular. These mushrooms are known for their potency, ease of cultivation and a variety of other benefits that make them a go-to choice for many mushroom enthusiasts. So why has this specific strain become one of the more sought after shrooms on the market? Let’s take a closer look.
What is a Golden Teacher?
While there is no way to accurately know for sure, it’s quite widely believed that Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms are the most common psychedelic mushroom species in North America. It is a strain of Psilocybe Cubensis (one of over 16 known species of psychedelic mushrooms).
Why are Golden Teachers so popular?
Golden Teachers are a great strain for beginners or those looking for a more predictable dosage. They’re considered medium potency, with roughly 0.61% psilocybin & 0.60% psilocin. Anecdotal data also suggest that Golden Teacher trips are often shorter than average, lasting closer to 2 hours rather than 4.
Many users claim they also contain unique healing qualities in addition to providing a euphoric experience. This combination attracts both those looking to ease into a psychedelic state as well as those looking to have an impactful experience beyond just the mushroom’s immediate effect.
Golden Teacher Magic Mushrooms Dosage
The dosage can vary dramatically based on the potency of the golden tops mushrooms. While many people will brew their golden caps into a tea or other prepared drink, others will incorporate the mushrooms into a portion of food to consume. Some users will dry the mushrooms, then encapsulate them for easy dosing, even mixing them into chocolate bars to consume periodically.
The potency of the golden caps mushrooms will fluctuate significantly and is rooted in several factors. The factors that determine the potency of the golden tops mushrooms include the specific variety or subspecies of mushroom, where it was grown or cultivated, the growing conditions, how mature they were at harvest and how they were then stored, and whether they are being consumed fresh or in a dried state.
If dried golden caps mushrooms are used, the concentration of psilocybin is increased considerably. This can lead to some problems related to dosing since the concentrations in dried mushrooms will be around ten times the concentration found in fresh golden caps mushrooms. The effects can be similar to LSD, though still unique and specific to mushrooms.
These effects can include:
- Feelings of peacefulness and unity with their surroundings
- Intensely spiritual experiences and awakenings
- Rapid mood changes
- Derealization, or a consistent feeling of detachment or disconnection from the current reality
- Depersonalization, or a sense of being disengaged from the people around them
- Unfamiliar, irregular, distorted, or new thought patterns
- Enhanced or intensified visualizations, such as colors becoming very vivid, or halos of light surrounding other people or objects
There are also several potential negative effects that users can experience from ingesting golden tops mushrooms.
Some of these negative side effects are:
- Loss of coordination or dizziness
- Yawning or excessive drowsiness
- Wandering focus and the inability to maintain attention
- Muscle weakness
- Strange or unfamiliar sensations in the body, such as humming, buzzing, or vibrating
- A feeling of confusion and anxiety, which can intensify and lead to a panic attack
- Stomachache, upset stomach, nausea, and vomiting, particularly if the mushrooms are ingested as a brewed tea
- Intense and sometimes frightening hallucinations that can cause significant trauma, and lasting psychological damage in some cases
- Increased danger of flashbacks for particularly heavy users or users with a larger proportion of “bad trips”
Since the individual biology of the user greatly affects the symptoms and effects that one will experience, the trip will vary from person to person. Many experience at least one or two of the desirable and undesirable effects. However, some users will experience a wider range of effects and symptoms. A very small number of people will not have any experience at all.
Those who begin their trip or experience anxiety or fear are at higher risk for a negative experience. If you think that you or someone close to you might be addicted to taking golden top mushrooms, they might feel very isolated and alone in their addiction.
By reaching out, you can let them know that they are not alone and that help is available for those that want it. When someone decides to stop taking golden tops mushrooms, they should have a solid support system and professional help.
