Golden Teachers Victoria BC

Golden Teachers are one strain or variety of Psilocybe cubensis. There are many varieties of this species of mushroom, but Golden Teachers are one of the more popular strains.

So what is the difference between a species and a strain? Well, a species is a distinct genetic lineage that typically cannot interbreed.

However, there are some exceptions to this interbreeding quality that tends to define species: lions and tigers can interbreed (to create the liger), as can horses and donkeys (to create the mule). We’re not currently aware of any hybrids of distinct magic mushroom species.

Psilocybe cubensis is the most commonly cultivated species of magic mushroom. Psilocybe is the genus the species belongs to. Genus is a taxonomic category in biology that ranks above species (and contains several species) and below family.

The family that Psilocybe belongs to is Hymenogastraceae. Because Psilocybe cubensis is a different species to Psilocybe mexicana, you couldn’t naturally cross them.

Terms like strain and variety are a bit more ambiguous. Scientists will disagree about what these terms mean. Also, you have vendors inventing new strains without explaining what makes them distinct. Nonetheless, we can characterize strains as all originating from the same species, and these strains can interbreed freely.

For example, you can interbreed Penis Envy mushrooms and B+ (both strains of Psilocybe cubensis), which leads to the Tidalwave strain.

Having a truly distinct strain, like Golden Teachers, means the mushrooms should display stable characteristics that can be reproduced every time you grow them. Growing strange-looking shrooms one time doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve created a new strain.
