The Golden Teacher aka Golden Tops or Gold Caps is a magic mushroom strain that, as its name suggests, is notorious for teaching life-changing lessons to those who ingest it. The Mixe (Mijes), a tribal group from Mexico who always consume their mushrooms in pairs, respectfully referred to them as “our masters, the mushrooms of the world”, or “the mushroom of reason”. Needless to say, Golden Teacher is one of those mind-altering wisdom providers.
Considered as a rather mild potency variety, this beloved magic mushroom strain nonetheless carries the reputation to have a profound impact on its consumers, making him a great choice for beginner psychonauts in search of a “spiritual classic”.
Because Golden Teacher fosters an open mindedness and gently modulates our perception, some believe it to be a great candidate for daily microdosing as it it said to help increase creativity, focus and improve the overall mood. If you were to look for slightly stronger effects, B+ and A+ are two hybrid cubensis strains that share a similar “vibe” to the Teacher.
This vibrant golden capped psychoactive mushroom is an easy-going grower that is widely cultivated for its generous yields and great flushes. Its broad fleshy caps make it ideal for spore printing. It grows gregariously and can be surprisingly large in size.
Some rumors say the first specimen of Golden Teachers originated from Florida in the mid-eighties. Other rumors believe it is actually a Hawaiian PES that a Dutch grower renamed because of the vibrant yellowish golden hue the cap has just before opening. Whichever story is the right, Golden Teacher is an elegant Psilocybe cubensis, and it is undeniably amongst the favourite neurotropic strains for both growers and psychonauts making it, in some way, the “rockstar” of magic mushrooms.
