Top Reasons Why Golden Teacher is the Most Popular Magic Mushroom

There are several magic mushrooms in the psychedelic sphere. But why is the Golden Teacher magic mushroom the most popular? It is time to find out.

What is a Golden Teacher mushroom?

Golden Teacher, also known as GT or Golden Top mushroom, is one of the most popular psychedelic shrooms. It is from Psilocybe Cubensis and is characterized by a large golden cap with a splash of reddish to cinnamon color. Its stem and cap are larger than the other strains. Also, the shrooms have a wide range of sizes. It can grow from 20 – 80 mm in diameter depending on its maturity.

So, why is it the most popular?

The GT mushroom is not the most potent strain amongst psychedelic mushrooms, but it is widely used by all forms of psychonauts (individuals who trip with psychedelic substances, including psychedelic mushrooms).


Reason #1: It is the “Gateway to Psychedelic Mushroom World”

The Golden Teacher is not the most potent strain of shrooms. Currently, the Psilocybe Subaeruginosa holds the title of the most potent magic mushroom strain with 1.93 percent of psilocybin and 0.17 percent psilocin followed by Psilocybe Azurenscens (Flying Saucers) with 1.78 percent of psilocybin and 0.38 percent of psilocin.

The GT mushroom, on the other hand, contains 0.63 percent of psilocybin and 0.60 percent of psilocin, making the shroom one of the least potent psychedelic mushroom strains. However, since it contains more psilocin than most strains, it still can affect a tripper’s mood, perception, and emotions but not intense as the others. For this reason, the Golden Teacher became a widely recommended shroom to new psychedelic mushroom trippers; thus, called the “Gateway to Psychedelic Mushroom World”.

Additionally, due to its “milder nature”, GT shrooms are often used in Psychedelic Therapy. The shroom shows a low risk of a “bad acid trip” – a negative and traumatizing experience during a psychedelic trip.

Reason #2: It gives better good trip results 

Golden Teacher mushroom has milder effects than the other strains. Therefore, you are guaranteed to experience a good trip than a bad one. Here are a few benefits of tripping with Golden Teacher shroom:

  • It helps beat depression and end-to-life anxiety.
  • It helps treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.
  • It helps withdraw smoking and other substance abuse or addiction.
  • You will get a good insight into life, creativity, spirituality, and even to yourself.
  • Better introspection.
  • Experience emotional breakthroughs.

Even though trippers using GT shrooms have less to no experience of “bad acid trip”, misusing and abusing the shroom can still cause several various health problems, especially mental health.

Reason #3: It is safe to consume

Golden Teacher mushroom is one of the most recommended psychedelic shrooms amongst experts and casual psychonauts because of its mild potency level. Also, its effects would only last no more than 2 hours, shorter than the other strains with 4-8 hours.

So, it is safe to say that consuming GT shrooms do not show health risks. However, like many other strains of magic shrooms, GT is still at risk of abuse and misuse. Therefore, consume what you can handle or the recommended.
