1st place undoubtedly goes to this variety of magic mushrooms. Of unknown origin, the Golden Teacher differs from other hallucinogenic mushrooms by its particular appearance. We can recognize it thanks to its thickness, its gold-colored hat marked with a brownish spot and its peduncle whose pigment is reminiscent of ivory.

Discovered 40 years ago, in 1980, this variety of hallucinogenic mushrooms is particularly appreciated for its growth capacity. You can count up to 14 days to consider a first harvest. The longest delay can result in a wait of 21 days. Moreover, it should be noted that the second flush of this mushroom crop will be larger than the first. It is a growing kit that remains easy to maintain and does not require special handling to cultivate it. 

But you have to be careful all the same: the easy growth of hallucinogenic mushrooms does not mean that they are accessible to novices. It should be remembered that the power of the Golden Teacher is moderate or even strong. It can generate very deep and emotional effects depending on the tolerance of each individual. His experience does not stop with a simple trip, but with a spiritual journey relating to shamanism. Once under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms, the user tends to feel close to nature. This is how the Golden Teacher has a reputation for healing the mind and the spirit.

It is a variety of hallucinogenic mushrooms that deserves to be known by all psychonauts for many reasons. The first reason is that it is named after the famous ethnobotanist Terence McKenna. He was very interested in the subject of human evolution, hence his famous “drunken monkey” hypothesis. Indeed, the majority of his speculations can be explained by the role of hallucinogenic chemicals, shamanism and gaism. It is thanks to his desire to have psychedelic beings recognized as a responsible role in society that hallucinogenic mushrooms have become known. 

Famous ethnobotanist Terence McKenna

Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was an American ethnobotanist and mystic who advocated for the responsible use of naturally occurring psychedelic plants.

However, the grow kit remains tricky to handle; it takes easily 3 weeks to see the first magic mushrooms grow. But that does not call into question the effectiveness of Mc Kennaii. On the contrary, its potency is renowned for surpassing the Copelandia Cyanescens, bearing the nickname Hawaiian. The magic mushroom induces hours of very pronounced visual effects, in addition to a glaring improvement on the cognitive and creative aspect. The feeling of joy and positivity is at the rendezvous, you will not miss the giggles that these hallucinogenic mushrooms have in store for you.

For fans of philosophical travel, Mc Kennaii is the ideal strain for this type of experience. As you can see, this is a very popular choice for experienced psychonauts.

It is important to end this ranking with one of the best psilocybe cubensis. Named “flesh of the gods” by the indigenous tribes of South America, the Mexican is the first variety to be recognized as a psychoactive living being.

Indeed, it was in 1958 that the Swiss chemist Albert Hoffmann identified the presence of psilocybin and psilocin as active components of this living being. Although the Mexican is the patriarch of hallucinogenic mushrooms, his speed of growth is not exemplary. You have to be very patient compared to other varieties before a first harvest.

 These mushrooms were also used by Dr. Albert Hoffman in the first isolation of psilocybin and psilocin. 

It's a wait that turns out to be rather profitable: the trip is often described as euphoric. Its power is suitable for novice psychonauts and guarantees particularly pleasant visualizations. The feeling of freedom, of opening up to new perspectives on oneself and on others are the expected effects of this variety.
