The exact origins of the golden teacher mushroom remain unknown – and its shape and size truly set it apart from the rest of its psilocybin sisters. There is one origin story that traces the roots of the teacher back to before the latest ice age – its spores trapped and surviving, and being released again with the melting of the caps.
One of the most distinctive aspects of the high from golden teachers is the feeling of enlightenment that accompanies all the beautiful visual hallucinations and feelings of euphoria. Many people express that their most intellectually- and spiritually-fulfilling mushroom highs come from the golden teachers, which contributes to their ongoing popularity.
Those looking to buy golden teachers should probably have some pre-existing experience using some more mellow strains. However, an average strong dose of teachers should be around 2.5-3.5 grams, and a mega-dose could be anything from 4-7 depending on your experience levels and the high you’re trying to reach.
