Taking magic truffles or mushrooms is quite an experience. It is something you shouldn’t do unprepared. To make sure your experience is a pleasant one it is wise to take the right precautions. In this section we want to give you some tips on how to get the most out of your trip. In this chapter I will describe how a trip could be. You have to understand that it is a very profound process guided by an intelligent natural resource. So you have to understand that no journey will be the same, and you get whatever you need. Usually insightful, sometimes beautiful and (in less pleasant cases) sometimes you will face some of your own demons.
Preparing your trip
In general, people experience their first trip as an unforgettable experience. The environment where you take the magic truffles has a major influence on your feeling during the trip.
In general one can say that the surroundings should be familiar. The environment must be safe and must feel comfortable. If you’re using magic truffles for the first time your own home is by far the best place to be. Most people are at ease in their own home. You can also choose to go outside. At least stay away from the busy city. The many unfamiliar sounds and impressions can create feeling of discomfort during the trip.
Hallucinating is a phenomenon that’s fascinated by mankind for centuries. It is a very strange sensation. Everyting you see suddenly changes. Things get different shapes and colours. You can probably imagine that mankind once thought that the hallucinations were messages from above.
|Nowadays much more is known about hallucinations and where they come from. A hallucination is a misperception of one of the senses (smell, sight, touch, etc.) You’ll perceive something that is not there.Hallucinations can be stimulated by certain substances in your body. Magic truffles are a good example. Hallucinations also occur in certain diseases or if such person has a fever.|
Hallucinations you get from eating magic truffles are very mild. You might see patterns in the walls or ceiling, or a beautiful changing of colours. It’s not scary when you are in a familiar environment. Actually, hallucinations are usually very fascinating and leave a fantastic, unforgettable impression!
Intensity of the trip-effect
No trip is the same. Some are more intense than others. People often assume mild effects are the cause of the dose you take, but the effect you get from your truffles can be influenced by a lot of variables. It's a product of nature, so the amount of the active substance (psilocybin) is not exactly the same for every portion, but should always be plenty for an excellent trip!
There is much more to it than the dose. The effect also depends on other factors, for instance:
- If you consume them before, after or during your meal (preferably before).
- Eating sugar (like sweets) causes a lower effect.
- Proper chewing causes the active ingredients to be released, and to be absorbed in your body better.
- Storage: Storing them in the fridge keeps them fresher, the fresher they are, the better the effect.
- Breaking the seal: You shouldn’t until you consume them, same reason as above.
- Your personal body-reaction. Not everyone is equally sensitive to truffles.
- And if that doesn't work, then of course, you can always take more if you wish to achieve a higher effect.
