The only thing more ubiquitous on the psilocybe cubensis spore market than Golden Teachers is the phrase, “for microscopy only.” Virtually every vendor of psilocybe cubensis mushroom spores in the world carries Golden Teacher spores in one form or another. In our experience they also account for well over 60% of spore sales, no matter what varieties you pit GT up against. Presumably, this can be attributable to a self-fulfilling prophecy: that is, they get all the buzz, so they get all the sales. But, is there more to it?
The origins of this variety are completely ambiguous. Some say it was found in the wilds of Florida in the 80s. Others claim it to be an isolation of another variety. All claims are impossible to verify utterly. Thus, the mystique lives on.
