What are magic truffles?

Truffles are formed when the mycelium hardens. The mycelium is an underground network of so-called hyphae. Under normal circumstances a mushroom will grow from these hyphae. However, when the climate isn’t right for growing a mushroom (because of drought, for example) the mycelium will form sclerotia. Truffles are a synonym for these sclerotia. Just like magic mushrooms truffles contain the psychoactive substances psilocine and psilocybine. Magic mushrooms are illegal in the Netherlands (as they are in many other countries). Truffles however are different from mushrooms, both technically and scientifically. Therefore truffles may be freely produced, bought and consumed in the Netherlands.

Usage of Magic Truffles

There are a few different ways to take truffles. For the best effect, be sure to take truffles on an empty stomach. The method that is mostly used is to simply chew truffles before swallowing them. When chewed well the cells of the truffles will break, which makes them work both better and faster. However, the nutty taste of truffles is not equally appreciated by all consumers and will even cause some people to retch. This problem is easily solved by the usage of a truffle grinder, with which you are able to grind the truffles to a pulp that is easily washed down with water. Finally, it’s also possible to steep tea from truffles. To do this, preferably use a truffle grinder as well. Then add hot water to the crushed truffles. However, make sure that you do not use boiling water, as this will compromise the effect of the active substances. The same applies when truffles are frozen.

Dosage of Magic Truffles

What are the effects of psilocybin truffles?

Most people refer to the trips as fun. Others describe them as deep and introspective. As with any psychedelic, there is a risk that you may have a bad trip. General effects of magic truffles last about 6 to 8 hours, and may include:

  • Connectedness with self, the universe, nature
  • Euphoria
  • Peacefulness
  • Spiritual awakening
  • Quickly changing emotions
  • Feeling detached from reality, dreamlike
  • Visual alteration and distortions
  • Hallucinations
  • Unusual body sensations
  • Distorted thinking

Psilocybin isn’t considered addictive and there are no physical symptoms of withdrawal after use. But it is possible to build up a tolerance or develop a psychological dependent to the substance with repeated, daily use.

Truffles and other substances

We strongly advise against the combination of truffles with alcohol, (illicit) drugs and certain prescription drugs. Not only does it spoil the purity of the experience, it can also cause several negative effects. In this section we give several examples. Please consult a doctor when in doubt.
The combination with alcohol can lead to nausea and mental instability.
The combination with cannabis can lead to an unwanted prolongation and intensification of the trip.
We also advise against the combination with antidepressants. Antidepressants in the categories “SSRI” and “tricylic” typically have an effect on the neurotransmitter serotonin. The active substances in truffles are similar to serotonin. This can have unwanted interactions. Antidepressants in the category MAOIs lead to a major prolongation and intensification of a trip. MAOIs can even be life threatening when combined with alcohol or certain drugs, prescription drugs and foods. Therefore, never combine truffles and MAOIs.
