Preparing your trip
Don’t take psychedelic drugs when you are depressed, angry, sick or just want to forget about your worries. Magic truffles contain psilocybin and are mental magnifying glasses. People who are depressed or have psychological problems could use psychedelics under supervision of an experienced psychotherapist or shaman. Tripping on your own while having psychological problems isn’t a good idea.
Make sure you are well rested before you start eating magic truffles. It’s also recommended to start using truffles as early as possible, if you want to start sleeping at a normal time. Suppose you want to sleep around midnight, then you may want to take truffles around 18:00. It’s also possible to take the truffles at the end of the evening, so you can trip the whole night. In some situations it’s nicer using truffles at night because it’s more quiet at night. Take a normal dose and choose a calm and relaxing environment. It’s not recommended to trip at a party if you’re using truffles for the first time.
The people around you
If you’re tripping with a group of people, it’s best when the group isn’t too big. Two to four people is the most ideal. If this is your first time, you shouldn’t trip alone. Whether tripping alone later is a good idea, is personal. Some people feel less relaxed when alone, while others like tripping by themselves. If you decide to trip with a group of friends, it isn’t necessary that one of you stays sober for whole the time. Usually it’s better when everyone is traveling to another dimension. If you are inexperienced, we advise that one person in the group takes a smaller dose than the others.
The most important thing is trust. Everybody should agree on a group-decision. For example, when someone proposes to listen to music someone isn’t comfortable with. It is wise to discuss these things before you eat magic truffles.
Tripping with a sitter
If you want to experiment with higher doses of truffles, it’s best to trip in the presence of a sitter. The sitter stays sober during your trip, so you can do what you want. When you’re thirsty, the sitter gets something to drink for you and when you feel cold, the sitter gives you a blanket. When you’re confused the sitter helps you to stay calm and supports you to experience your trip to the fullest. Furthermore, the sitter remains silent, sitting somewhere in another room. The sitter shouldn’t talk like a psychoanalyst while you’re tripping. The role of the sitter is merely the passive facilitation of your trip. What a sitter can do is reassure you with words or touch, or if it really goes wrong, bring you to an aid station.
The location should be familiar for the trippers. The environment should be safe and enjoyable for everyone. Your home is perfect while using magic truffles for the first time. But you can also go outside in the garden, a park of a pasture. That could really be fun. It’s preferable to not take magic truffles in a noisy city. The calmness and colourfulness of nature works much better. It isn’t advisable, especially for a first trip, to make contact with the 'outside world', as appearing in public, call friends or send emails. It’s the best to disable your phone and doorbell.
Consider ‘packing’ a few days before tripping. Fill your brain with interesting information about documentaries, films or books. Try to relax and avoid stressful situations. Take more walks in the woods or learn to meditate. This all can have a positive influence on your magic truffle trip, so it’s even more fascinating.
For an optimal visual experience you have to be in a dark room. This is particularly important while using a higher dosage truffles.
Tripping takes some practice if you want to have the best experience. You must learn what thing you have to do and what things you can’t influence. It’s useless to try to resist things you can’t control. When psychedelics start working, you can’t stop the effect. When your consciousness is overwhelmed by vivid images and overwhelming thoughts, don’t panic. For instance, don’t start staring at the clock desperately to see when you’ll be sober again. And leave the phone turned off. It often makes more sense to stick to your original plan. Sometimes a walk can help you, but that depends on the surroundings. Often external impressions are extra confusing and disturbing.
Do you still feel the need to call help, search help with someone who has experience with psychedelics. Don’t call direct family, since these people usually don’t know how to help.
The use of other drugs while tripping on magic truffles
Don’t use drugs while you’re tripping on magic truffles. Only one exception is worth mentioning, and that’s cannabis. A welcome side effect of cannabis is that it may reduce the nausea, that occur for some people in natural psychedelics. Some people use cannabis before and during the trip, while others prefer to wait until the trip is over. So this is something you’ll have to decide for yourself.
