What Are Golden Teachers Mushrooms, And Are They Legal?
penis envy shrooms mushrooms are one of the most commonly used psilocybin mushrooms. They are not a species, but instead a strain of Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms.
As with other psilocybin mushrooms, the main psychoactive compounds it contains are psilocybin and psilocin. Cultivators and psychonauts like this magic mushroom strain for different reasons.
In this post, we will be exploring those reasons, as well as what makes Golden Teachers unique and different from other psilocybin mushrooms. Finally, we will end with a discussion on the legal status of Golden Teachers.
The Effects Of Golden Teachers Mushrooms
penis envy shrooms derived the “teacher” part of their name due to users finding that they offered them insightful and revelatory experiences. However, any strain of magic mushroom can, of course, offer important insights, as if you’re learning life lessons from a teacher.
Since penis envy shrooms have a moderate potency level, they are an ideal entry point for those new to psychedelics. The strain’s mild nature reduces the risk of a bad trip for a user.
More experienced users may take a larger dose of Golden Teachers in order to achieve unique effects, such as mystical experiences.
The Benefits Of Psilocybin Mushrooms
There is a growing body of research demonstrating that psilocybin can treat a variety of mental health issues, including depression, end-of-life anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as smoking addiction.
Imperial College London’s Psychedelic Research Centre also has an upcoming trial looking at psilocybin as a treatment for anorexia.
These benefits depend on the quality of the psilocybin experience; they are related to effects like mystical experiences, connection to one’s emotions, and emotional breakthroughs.
Besides the conditions above, many people find psilocybin mushrooms help in many other areas of their life, including their relationships, worldview, lifestyle, spirituality, and overall level of life satisfaction.
Using Golden Teacher mushrooms has the potential to provide some of these same benefits.
However, it’s crucial to remember that using magic mushrooms in this way is not the same as using them in a clinical, supervised setting.
Taking them with a guide, as well as in the right mindset and environment, can, nonetheless, increase your chances of having a positive, therapeutic experience.
The Legal Status
This means they have no recognized medical value and a high potential for abuse.
Of course, studies on psilocybin and anecdotal reports from many users seem to suggest otherwise.
Nevertheless, Golden Teacher spores are legal to possess in most of the U.S., except in the states of California, Idaho, and Georgia. Therefore, if you are a U.S. citizen and don’t live in these three states, you can legally buy and own Golden Teacher spores.
But as soon as you cultivate these mushrooms, you will then be committing a crime, according to federal law. This is because when the spores begin to germinate, they can form mycelium and then mature mushrooms, which contain the illegal compound psilocybin.
However, possessing psilocybin mushrooms for personal use has been decriminalized (but not legalized) in some areas in the U.S. These include the following.
- Seattle, Washington
- Denver, Colorado
- Ann Arbor, Michigan
- Washington D.C.
- Oakland and Santa Cruz, California
- Somerville and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
