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.
