What is a Golden Teacher?
Golden Teacher is a mushroom that belongs to the Psilocybe cubensis variety, it is the Hymenogastraceae (mushroom family ) its origin is not fully known. The Golden Teacher is relatively new to the family, as it appeared in the 1980s and has created a lot of confusion among mycologists. It has smooth, plump hats, in shades of orange-brown-caramel. The stem is cream or white, with a stocky structure. The variety is probably the best known of the Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. It does not occur naturally, as by definition the “variety” is cultivated and is not a naturally occurring specimen. In the world of mycologists, it is considered simple and convenient to grow, which is why it enjoys such wide distribution. Golden Teacher is a carefully selected species of psilocybe cubensis, whose desirable traits have been isolated to produce enhanced hallucinogenic effects and better adaptation to unpredictable environmental conditions.
Why is Golden Teacher such a popular hallucinogenic mushroom?
First, because of the remarkable balance between its power and ease of cultivation. The variety is neither strong nor weak. On the scale of the power of action, it ranks in the middle. It will work well for both beginners and more advanced players. The content of psilocybin is 0.63%, psilocin 0.60% and baeocystin 0.25%. In addition, the duration of the trip is shorter than with other mushrooms or LSD, depending on the dose it is usually 2-4 hours, which is a plus for amateurs who do not know what they are signing up for. However, this time, too, can wipe a person off the board. That’s why it’s so important to stay safe and take care of the set & setting and education. Be sure to check out the post on this topic on our blog. Before you buy your first growkit, you might want to familiarize yourself with the issues surrounding psychedelics and lean more carefully into this thread.
However, back on topic of Golden Teacher – the most valuable feature that influenced his popularity, which gave him the name of the king of hallucinogenic mushrooms, is his extraordinary wisdom, the feeling of communing with a higher intelligence, directed to the inner feeling of love. His clear form of education is downright epic, and the experience with him is a sense of unusual balance between a warm feeling on the heart and an expanded state of consciousness. Golden Teacher is so popular because among users of psychedelic sensations, it is perceived as the one less likely to cause a “bad trip.” However, keep in mind that any use of a psychedelic substance can carry dangerous risks, and we can’t 100% predict anything.
Is Golden Teacher legitimate?
The possession, or sale, of a growkit of the Golden Teacher variety is legal in Poland, as long as the growkit is intended for research or collection purposes. The mycelium does not contain banned substances. The moment we allow mushrooms to grow from growkit, illegal material, or psilocybin, is released in the mushrooms – then we run the risk of conflict with current laws. To see where you can legally grow and possess hallucinogenic mushrooms verify the legal status of each state here.

HOW TO GROWKIT GOLDEN TEACHER?
are illegal. However, there are countries where this is possible, to be sure, check the legal status of the growkits of the country where you reside, if it is positive, on our page in the
article on growing magic mushrooms
you will learn how to take care of them. Golden Teachers are a good choice for cultivation. If you are just starting out, any variety of Psilocybe cubensis is easy to grow, and all varieties have similar growing requirements (such as temperature, humidity and light).
Is Golden Teacher easy to grow?
Many growers say they do. In fact, this type of mushroom – like other strains of Psilocybe cubensis – is known to be relatively easy to grow, making it an excellent choice for novice growers. And how long does it take to breed Golden Teachers? Expect the process to take 4-6 weeks from inoculation with spores to fruiting.
HOW DOES GOLDEN TEACHER MUSHROOMS WORK?
Golden Teachers took the “teacher” part of their name because users found that they offered them insightful and revealing experiences. However, any variety of magic mushroom can obviously offer important insights, as if you were learning life lessons from a teacher. Because GTs have a moderate level of potency, they are an ideal starting point for those who are new to psychedelics. The mild nature of the variety reduces the risk of a bad trip for the user. More experienced users can take a higher dose of Golden Teachers for unique effects, such as mystical sensations.
Golden Teacher mushroom doses should be taken with caution. Even if they’re medium strength mushrooms, if you’ve never tripped before or are new to psychedelics, it’s always best to start with a low dose first to get used to the effects, and then take a higher dose next time if you feel like it. Remember: you can always take more, but never less.
How to dose Golden Teacher?
The subject is not clear-cut, because we can’t tell by eye what the psilocybin content of a particular, specific mushroom is. There may be more in one, less in another. The second issue is our body’s individual tolerance to psilocybin. It might seem that someone who weighs 90 kg and is 190 cm tall has a high resistance to this substance, nothing could be further from the truth. It happens that people barely weighing 50 kg have it much higher, and to get the desired effect they have to take more than the recommended dose.
So how do you dose hallucinogenic mushrooms?
Psilocybin mushrooms contain 90% water in their composition, so there is a very big difference between a dose of dried and fresh mushrooms. A precision balance with an accuracy of 0.5 grams is used to properly prepare the dose. Dose selection is a very subjective matter, so it’s important not to skim and start with small portions.
Golden Teacher dosage
Psychedelic sensations begin at just 1 g of dried mushrooms. At first contact, no more than 2 g is recommended. The average dose is about 3.5 g. The dose that gives the full psychedelic experience is 5 grams of the dried drug – with the caveat that this is for very experienced people. When using fresh hallux, it is assumed that the dose is multiplied times 10. That is, for the first dose, 20 g is designated, the average dose is 35 g, very strong 50 g.
In order to better choose the amount to take, it is worthwhile to help ourselves with calculators available online – they take into account our weight, but do not take into account individual tolerance to psilocybin, which is important:
The wrong dose can make quite a mess, so take care of your safety when deciding to take hallucinogenic mushrooms – they are not toys. If you have a few drinks too many – you know the hangover will be terrible, in the case of taking hallucinogenic mushrooms – if you take too many – the effects are unpredictable and it might as well be your first and last time, because you will get so discouraged. Therefore, start with smaller amounts.
This article is not intended to scare or educate, it is the subjective opinion of the author. We do not encourage the consumption of psilocybin mushrooms, we want to impart knowledge and raise awareness about psychedelic substances. Possession and use of hallucinogenic mushrooms is illegal in Poland, choosing to consume – you risk conflict with the law.
Benefits of psilocybin mushrooms
There is a growing body of research showing that psilocybin can treat a variety of mental health problems, including depression, end-of-life anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as smoking addiction, treatments for depression. The Psychedelic Research Center at Imperial College London also has an upcoming study examining psilocybin as a treatment for anorexia. These benefits depend on the quality of the psilocybin experience; they are related to effects such as mystical experiences, emotional connection and emotional breakthroughs.
Note, however, that using magic mushrooms in this way is not the same as using them in a clinical, supervised setting. Receiving them with guidance, and in the right mindset and environment, however, can increase your chances of having a positive, therapeutic experience.

Growkit growing instructions of the new version of Golden Teacher (semi-automatic):
Take the growkit from Golden Teacher in the new version (white contents of the box) out of the carton, but do not throw it away. Remove the cover from the kit. Wash the lid with running tap water and store it well. It is best to put it away in a large plastic bag closed with a zip lock.
Place the grow bag (the one that comes with the box and clips in the carton) on a flat surface then slide the grow kit into the bag. Fold the grow bag under the bottom of the grow kit. Make sure the microperforations are facing up at this time. Put the folded grow bag (with the grow kit on the side) back into the cardboard box. The cardboard will block incoming sunlight from the sides.
Place the grow kit in an area with sufficient daylight, but never in direct sunlight. The windowsill falls off ;). Also make sure the temperature is between 20 and 26 degrees. The ideal temperature for a perfect harvest is 23 degrees.
When you see the first small pins, you can set the bag vertically. And close it with paperclips. As it looked in the “old” method. However, do not add water.
As soon as you notice that the first caps are growing, slightly open the bag for a few minutes so that excessive moisture can evaporate.
When the mushrooms grow up, you can pick them. Try to do it before the first spores begin to fall – that is, until they are not fully open. Remember, always wash your hands before collecting, and use disinfectant liquid.
After the first harvest, fill the grow kit with clean tap water and preferably distilled water. Put the lid back on the container (I hope it is kept as mentioned in the first step). Leave the box for 12 hours. After this time, open the corner of the lid and gently pour over the excess water. Now go back to step 2 and prepare for the next harvest. This process can be repeated many times.
What is quite important – the cultivation kit is 100% ready to use. You don’t need to add water to the growing kit at all. You don’t need to pre-soak or spray during the growing process. Always work in as clean conditions as possible and wash your hands before touching the grow kit.
Do not add water to the grow kit and do not spray the grow kit or grow bag as is done with the older golden teacher growkits or other groboxes in our store
* Psilocybe cubensis
Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom that contains the active compounds psilocybin and psilocin. There are about 60 varieties in the world. The etymology of the name is as follows:“psilos” means to rub or shave, while “cybe” comes from the word “kybe” and means exactly “head,” “cubensis” – the place where the species was collected, which was in Cuba in 1904. In summary, “psilocybe cubensis” means “shaved head from Cuba.” The common name for these is magic mushrooms, or hallucinogenic mushrooms. Psilocybe cubensis belong to the Hymenogastraceae family, and are also called “golden halos” because of their almost unmistakable protuberances or flat, yellow-brown hats. They can bedistinguished from its derived counterparts by their proportionally large stem size and expanded hats. They naturally germinate in cattle feces, while in organized cultures they germinate on substrates like coffee or brown rice flour. A characteristic feature of psilocybe cubensis are green-blue bruises on the stems, this is the result of oxidation of phenolic compounds, which are precursors of biosynthesis, among other things. psilocybin. The average psilocybin content per gram of dried mushrooms of this species is 10-12 mg.
