The Golden Teacher mushroom might be the most well known mushroom in Canada. Or at least, on the West Coast of Canada. The Golden Teacher mushrooms appearances is quite large & elegant. Buckle in for a beautiful ride.
For a deep dive into the beautiful and popular Golden Teacher mushroom, please check this post we did. Golden Teachers are a type of Psilocybe cubensis and are one heck of an experience and highly recommended by ALL who have tried them. From Plato to William Blake and half of Silicon Valley executives, the trip is a doorway to reality. From the physical to the metaphysical that you will experience in you head, all things connect as one: all emotions, thoughts, ideas, actions, feelings, human connections, natural connections. Absolutely beautiful.
Our golden teacher inventory comes from the West Coast of British Columbia. Farmed in a very pure and environmentally conscious way. There is no footprint left on the land in which these grow because they grow organically and without any aid. That is the beauty of the West Coast!

Golden Teacher Mushroom Effect #1: Artistic, Scientific, and Philosophical Creation
Artists and other creative individuals have often reported using psychedelic substances in an e ort to enhance creative output or novelty.
Plato’s theory of creative inspiration directly credited the possession of the artist by the Muse or other gods; the artist lost their own mind or self and entered a poetic “fury” or “frenzy” during which a higher force created through them (McMahon, 2013; Murray, 1996; Pieper, 1964). Plato even went so far as to directly compare the frenzy of artistic creation with the cultic rites of Dionysus, where participants were similarly filled with (prob- ably substance-induced) ecstasy and enthusiasm.
William Blake provides an excellent (if more modern) example: Blake’s poetry and painting are all but unimaginable absent the visionary altered states that inspired them (Bloom, 1963). The loss of the sense of self in visionary states is in many ways reminiscent of core and peak psychedelic experiences, dis- cussed in more detail below.
Golden Teacher Mushrooms Effect #2: Daydreaming and Dreaming
Dreaming is a more familiar example of a bizarre visionary experience that each of us participates in every night and thus is easier to relate to when speaking about psychedelic experiences. There are many parallels between dreaming and daydreaming with psychedelic experience. Including immersive visual imagery, highly novel and unusual patterns of thinking, intense emotional experience, and a disrupted sense of self/ridding of the Ego.
