Those who are new to the world of psychedelics and shrooms can count on Golden Teachers for a reliable trip with lesser chances of having a bad trip. Hence, they are often a gateway shroom for magic mushroom newbies.

Golden teachers are also lauded for their spiritual and/or shamanic effects. Hence, this shroom isn’t just for casual tripping. It can also be used for gaining new insight about yourself and the universe.

It’s not uncommon for the Golden Teacher shrooms to produce a feeling of enlightenment and a deeper connection to nature. Spirit healers turn to Golden teacher shrooms as tools for restoring the mind and spirit.

Golden Teacher trip report

Golden Teacher trip report

A mentally and physically healthy, 75 kilogram, 24-year old male tried tripping on Golden Teacher mushrooms. He hasn’t had Golden Teachers before but he does have experience with other magic mushrooms especially the Psilocybe tampanensis species.

The experience was preceded by a long day at work. He was physically tired and ready to just relax and unload his mind. He claimed when he touched the psychedelic shrooms, he already felt more in touch with the meaning of existence. A feeling of relaxation and homecoming washed over him.

And so he went on to get to know the Golden Teacher shrooms.

He ingested two dried caps, weighing approximately 1.5 grams, along with a dose of very tasteful and healthy herbal honey. For him, the process of chewing and swallowing the shrooms is like walking through a portal knowing that in just a few moments, his perception will be radically altered.

While waiting for the effects, he leaned back on his most comfortable chair and turned on the TV to watch an episode of South Parl. After twenty minutes, the effects started as a tingling sensation from the hands, arms, shoulders, and to the top of his head. The initial sensation is comfortable and sensual. The laidback feeling increases and his facial muscles relax as an intense and ecstatic surge pulsates throughout his body.

When he looked into the mirror, his physical appearance started to show the classical signs of magic mushroom ingestion: wide pupils, and flushed skin.

After lying on bed, the magic mushroom is able to take more control of his body. Upon closing his eyes, he hears a sound followed by another until the series of sounds become similar to wind chimes with different frequencies.

His body started to become weightless – the spirit has disconnected from the body. He has entered the dimensions where his thoughts, feelings, sounds, and the physical world are woven together into an increasingly bizarre landscape.

The next step was characterized by a surrender of control. Without any restrictions in his thoughts and emotions, his mind brought him to introspect about the various people in his life. As every person passed through his mind, he was able to become that person. He experienced the other person’s mental, emotional, and physical perspective.

After a while, the experience softened and he returned to his regular self. After another hour, he was able to sleep peacefully. When he woke up, he felt recharged, more energetic, and more emotionally stable!

Every person’s Golden Teacher mushroom trip experience but this trip report can be your benchmark if you ingest Golden Teacher shrooms with the right mindset and in the right environment.

Tripping on Golden Teachers guidelines

As psychedelics with the ability to heal the mind and spirit, Golden Teachers need to be treated with respect and refrain from abusing the power they possess. Always be responsible. Here are some useful tips when tripping on Golden teachers:

  • If you’re tripping for the first time, it’s best to have a trip sitter nearby. A trip sitter will remain sober and watch over you to help out in the event of an emergency.
  • Never exceed the recommended Golden Teacher dose.
  • Don’t mix Golden Teachers with weed or other substances even if you are an experienced tripper.
  • Have some Vitamin C nearby to help you recover from the effects in case your dose is stronger than intended.
  • Drink a lot of water after the trip to help flush the psilocybin out of your system and to be able to return to your day-to-day self much quicker.

    The Golden Teacher is indeed golden. I was wondering who this being was during the first ceremony — .5g to start, and nibbled a bit more later as it was very mild. And thank goodness. I appreciated the gentleness. Seemed to take an hr to notice effects

    The second time i took more, probably over a gram. It took about an hour or so to notice the effects. Went for a walk down to the beach and watched the waves — saw the same golden being again. It reveals itself when getting quiet & still. It seemed to look a lot like a Hindu Goddess with arms in the prayer position both times. I noticed a magnetic sense grow in intensity while I felt the need to breath deeper and more fully. I saw another dimension, it was quite beautiful, and had an enormous tree. It looked like there was another portal at that top of that one in the sky.
    Didn’t realize until after that we picked quite a day for this ceremony during the full moon energy

    I found it hard to surrender and let go so it was a tough lesson which required breath and body work. It was unsettling but nothing new. Similar in other trips i’ve experienced with other plant medicines before in regards to ego death to help let go old narratives/trauma. Felt a bit dissociated after and a bit the next day along with some gloom but by evening I started to feel grounded again and easier on myself.

    Looking forward to next class – will likely stick to the .5 again since i don’t need much.
    Wishing anyone working with this teacher a clear and honourable intent free from distractions.

    My first trip I had about 2-3 grams dry, just chewed and swallowed and chased with some green tea. They don’t taste particularly bad… nice and crunchy. I sat outside where I have a fear of wasps but I was unconcerned once I was high. The mushrooms gave me extremely bad nausea and some stomach pain. But the high was all consuming. I could not move from the chair I was sitting in outside, because it wasn’t there. Nothing was there- only nature. Nothing mattered except that moment, and crying I gazed at the woods by my house and felt such love for everything and for the world that I wept out of sheer happiness. Much of my high was spent with eyes closed as my mind explored incoming waves of ideas and theories about the universe. I kept some weed handy to combat the nausea, which never fully went away. But my trip lasted maybe six hours.

    If you are outside, you will not be afraid my friend.

    Inside the house you may feel uneasy, but that is just because this is a nature plant. You need to go outside. If they can’t get to you, the dogs are not gonna bother you.

    Hi there, I trust you’re well all well.

    I’m a newbie but have been reading and doing abit of research on Magic mushrooms specifically golden teachers. I’m yet to have my first trip on shrooms. I’ve recently ordered a PF kit to grow my own and hopefully next month around this time I’d be having my first trip.

    I’ve put a few things to thought regarding my surroundings. I live in a suburban area and I’ve got a decent garden with grass and tress around. People normally walk or jog during 06:00 & 09:00. Because it’s lockdown dogs are still not used to human movement on the road they bark alot now & make alot of noise. I’ve been thinking after my first flush I’ll consume 1 gram of shrooms early in the morning while it’s still nice and peaceful around 05:00 Am.

    REASON I’m sharing this is because I don’t know if the sound of dogs in my neighborhood could influence my first trip badly because I’d like to trip in a place I’m familiar with which is my garden. I’d appreciate if anyone could share their wisdom or trip testimony Interms of what could possibly influence my trip badly or what influenced their trip badly.

    Plan B is to close my curtains, make sure that my personal space is super tidy and have my first trip in my room.

    My cousin and I are getting 10 grams of dried GT mushrooms, and my cousin and I had the trip experience because we used mushrooms and lsd. Hope you guys have experience telling me how many grams should I take for the first time with golden teacher mushrooms.thanks you so much <3

  6. Pedro 14th April 2020 at 05:21 #

    I grew some I let them dry I don’t think I let them dry all the way out tho I ate about 7g and felt nothing can anyone tell me why? Did I not let them mature enough or something?

  7. Shane Tierney 23rd March 2020 at 23:37 #

    Just ordered a growkit that will yield 300grams of GT’s. If taking 2/3 gram doses, what is the best way to dry and store them? Thanks

  8. Mushroom user 3rd March 2020 at 04:24 #

    I started off one night with 7 grams, 6 hrs later, re-upped with another 7 grams. Was incredible. You can do a couple grams in public or at a show etc… in larger quantity, stay home, enjoy with a close friend. You will bathe in the universe and all questions that materialize will be answered. Settle in for a wild trip, me and my friend were mirroring each other’s trip and were sailing an LSD laboratory owned by an ancient family of Philippine sailors, with Poseidon and all… how’s that for crazy! Haha… I blame it on the surroundings and my friends imagination partially.

    Golden Teachers are by far the most interesting mushroom I’ve ever ingested. They seem to want to show you things about yourself, the Earth, and the universe that lie hidden and just out of reach. I’ve watched plants grow, waves undulate across the ground, and have seen the spiral that is inherent in all wave forms on Golden Teachers. While on them I’ve been visited by animals and those who’ve passed on. I’ve tasted the moonlight of a full moon. I’ve been….taught. I highly encourage anyone who is seeking to become acquainted with these friends.

    I ground up 8g dry of golden teachers I grew myself. The trip is coming on now. I am slightly scared that I may have taken way to much tho I usually take 7g of any cube.
    Hoping for healing with these mushrooms. I believe they are medicine to the mind, body and especially the soul.

    I grew a gigantic shroom from a growkit in Netherlands, it also was the second yiest of that growkit. The shroom itself was 110g fresh, so I would say 11g dried. I ate it all. I shouldn’t have done it, but I did. That night I thought I was dying, I felt the mushroom inside of me and it was taking over my body and mind. But the one who was dying was my ego not me. It was late autumn in Netherlands. I was staying in rural area and in the middle of the night I went out to a freshly harvested corn field. I was kneeling in mud in the middle of the field and yelling at cosmos from the top of my lungs “I am free! I’m not afraid of anything anymore” it was a first glimpse of liberation this strong and this intense, that I actually inbelieved that I figured out life. I felt like I won a lottery where the prize is ultimate blissfulness and enlightenment. I came to this forum because I’m doubting which species to chose for growing but now I’m kinda sure, I’m sticking to golden teachers. They have so much to teach. Thank you guys, you’re awesome.

    My first time ever taking shrooms I took 2g of Golden Teacher. I felt nothing. The next day took 3 and again, felt nothing. Couple days later took 7g’s and it hit me hard. It was an incredible experience! I discovered so many things about myself that I had been suppressing. My mind completely opened up. I experienced ego death. God spoke to me. It was scary, but I was very relaxed. Enjoyed some calming meditation music, and laid on my back with a million thoughts in my head. Such a personal experience. I closed my eyes listening to the music, and saw like, Spirograph patters of dancing mushrooms lol. I felt hell. But I also felt good. Everything is Ying and Yang.
    One of the top experiences of my life.
    I would not take that much ever again tho.
    I feel like the trip hit “restart” on my brain. Like, wiped away everything and gave me a blank slate.
    Next time, I just want to have fun and see pink elephants n shit.
    Golden Teacher is a trip!

    Golden teachers healed trauma I never thought I would get past. They are so lovely.

  15. Sith Daddy 5th June 2019 at 05:53 #

    Absolutely Love and appreciate Golden Teachers. I microdose about .3g for about a week and feel so happy and enlightened after each lesson. Aloha

  16. Joe 14th May 2019 at 02:02 #

    Done them for the first time 3 grams by myself, one of the best things I have ever experienced in my life .I’m grateful for the experience.I believe mindset and your surroundings should be comfortable for you.And don’t fight the feeling when you feel it coming on you just have to LET GO!??

  17. Bodhisvatta 13th May 2019 at 07:10 #

    Oh come on, don’t exceed 2.5 grams? Don’t use cannabis? What happened to the heroes? I’ve done 6 grams at once, and used cannabis and nicotine (vape) before during and after. I connected with universal consciousness, and communicated with a being who said they were the spirit of those like Buddha Krishna and Jesus. I experienced my life past present and future, I experienced death of ego, to signs and symbols of the universe and the hidden knowledge were revealed to me. I think I may have even performed some telekinesis. I saw the one thing, and became it.

    Do you have any source for the claim that Vitamin C can “help you recover from the effects” of mushrooms?

    Is micro dosing on this 1/10 of a gram?

  22. Jason Dubya 7th November 2018 at 00:27 #

    This isn’t to be taken lightly… these are serious agonists for insight into you’re own mind as well as insight into the nature of reality. BEWARE, you may not like where you go, but allow yourself to be vulnerable. If you don’t, things only get worse. And keep in mind, even “bad trips” are productive….
