One of the most popular shrooms (of the psilocybe cubensis variety) in demand today is the Golden Teacher mushroom. This well-known psychedelic mushroom strain contains the active elements psilocybin and psilocin. The strain is aptly named for its iconic gold-capped appearance as well as its introspective and philosophical effects. The reported effects on the brain and body are unlike other psychedelic varieties, making it a firm favorite amongst many magic mushroom communities. Golden Teachers have been reported to give a more guided, educative experience, rather than just a pure “trip,” as most experience with other varieties.
