What are magic truffles?

Magic mushrooms and truffles are often confused. Truffles are actually the underground product of different types of mushrooms. Magic truffles are purely natural products that create unforgettable spiritual experiences for those who consume them.

Magic truffles contain psychoactive substances called psilocybin that creates a changing perception for the user. You’ll perceive things around you differently and more intense. In some cases, hallucinations are part of the experience. The use of magic truffles will result in a feeling of euphoria. For many people, it is a profound spiritual experience in which brilliant inspiration and ideas are born.

Other names for magic truffles are Space Truffles, Tripknollen, Sclerotia and Philosophers Stones.

What are the effects of magic truffles?

What can we say about the impact of magic truffles in our brain? The fact that the effect depends on several factors such as mood and overall feel of the user. The amount of food in the stomach of the user is another factor. Someone who has just eaten will experience milder effects than people who take on an empty stomach.

All users have reported similar effects in varying degrees:

  • An intensive experience of color, sound, and feelings
  • A sense of joy and satisfaction
  • Laughing
  • Abnormal sensory perception

After taking the truffles, it takes about 45 minutes before the first effects are noticeable. The pupils are wider, more intense colors and people will perceive patterns on walls and ceilings. Also you will experience intense music If you close your eyes you often see patterns. In some cases you can even affect the patterns of behavior.

Although a trip usually takes about 4 to 6 hours, users experience this often as much longer. This is because magic truffles also affect the sense of time If the trip is over you will be surprised of the effects. It has a big influence on your thinking and it is not easy to explain in a few words to someone how it feels.

Psilocybin is the active ingredient of Magic Truffles. Psilocybin is found in many different fungi. There are many people who consider the substance as an entheogen. This literally means “the God within us”, and it is a term used for psychoactive substances used in a spiritual context. How long and how intense entheogen works depends on many factors, such as when someone takes it and the mood and setting in which someone is.

After taking psilocybin our body changes the substance in psilocyne. Psilocyne affects certain receptors in the brain. Psilocybin is absolutely non-toxic. It is not possible to have a fatal dose of psilocybin.

How do I use magic truffles?

Magic truffles are a product of nature, so the amount of the active substance (psilocybin) is not exactly the same for every portion.

The intensity of your truffle-trip not only depends on the species or dose you’re taking.  Your personal body-reaction plays a part as well. Not everyone is equally sensitive to truffles. There are a couple of measures you can keep in mind to get the most out of your truffles.

  • Store the magic truffles in the fridge to keep them fresh. the fresher they are, the better the effect.
  • Don’t break the seal until you consume them to maintain freshness.
  • It’s best to eat light food like juice and soup (no meat) prior to the trip, then the truffles will be absorbed really well.
  • It’s also better not to drink any alcohol or coffee within that time.
  • Eating sugar (like sweets) causes a lower effect.
  • Be sure to chew well. Chewing causes the psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic truffle, to release.

Some people may experience a light stomach ache just after they swallow truffles. Don’t worry, this is a perfectly normal side effect that disappears when the psilocybin starts working.

Usually, it will take up 45 minutes before the first effects are noticeable. Stay in a comfortable mental state, enjoy what happens to you and don’t fight it. And of course, you can always take a higher dose if you wish to increase the effect.

Because magic truffles have such a distinct taste some people prefer to make tea. To make tea you with magic truffles you first have to boil some water in a pan. When the water is boiling, take it off the heat. Cut the magic truffles in little pieces and put them in the water. When it’s too hot the active ingredient is broken down. After 15 minutes your tea is ready to be filtered. You can add some honey if you want to make it taste better.

We do not recommend taking truffles more than once a week. You will become more immune. Also, we can’t guarantee taking them at a higher frequency is good for your health.

Unlike consuming magic truffles for deep tripping people also use them for micro-dosing to heighten their daily lives. This can be done for a variety of reasons; it helps some people handle headaches, for others it raises awareness, helping their creativity, sports, or even learning.

There is no general best strain or dosage for micro-dosing, but we only use Tampanensis for our 1 gram micro-dose package.

As each individual is unique, their perfect way of micro-dosing is unique as well. If you want to try micro-dosing just start with very low doses and work from there. Treat it as an experiment of the mind!

Are there health risks involved?

Using magic truffles is not harmful to the body or mind. There are no real dangers. Psilocybin is absolutely non-toxic. It is not possible to have a fatal dose.

You should not use magic truffles in combination with alcohol or drugs. This enhances the effect of magic truffles and that can lead to an unpleasant experience.

Some people who take Magic Truffles indicate that they have panic and feelings of fear. This is called a bad trip. It is almost always a lack of preparation. We have a few tips to prevent a bad trip.

To avoid a bad trip you should:

  • Make sure you’re in an environment that feels comfortable. Avoid situations in which you get exposed to sudden stimuli. The best place to be is at home.
  • Make sure someone is present who will remain sober. This is called a sitter. This person should put you at ease when you get negative feelings.
  • When you’re worried about something or have other issues you should not use magic truffles.
  • Magic truffles enhance your feelings. When you’re not feeling well or when you’re upset, the use of truffles can make this feeling stronger. When you are happy and relaxed the use of magic truffles will make you feel even better.
  • A bad trip is always triggered by negative thoughts. When you’re having negative thoughts during your trip try to think of positive things. This might be easier said than done but you really should try it. When the environment you are in is causing negative thoughts try to change it. Is the room you’re in dark? Put on a light. Is the room hot? Open a window.

The best tip we can give you is to relax.

Are magic truffles legal?

Luckily, magic truffles are a legal product in the Netherlands. We could not sell our beautiful products if they were illegal.

The United Nations confirms that only mushrooms or other species containing psilocybin that are on the list of banned substances are illegal. Sclerotia (magic truffles) are not on this list and are therefore legal products.

Although magic truffles are legal, there might be countries is which there are restrictions towards magic truffles. However, we can’t check every law of every specific country. By placing an order with us you indicate that you are informed of possible legal restrictions on the possession and consumption of the ordered goods in your own country.

Shelf life and storage of magic truffles

Magic truffles and magic mushrooms are a living organism. Like culinary mushrooms, they won’t stay fresh forever. The sooner you consume, the better the taste and the effect will be.

All magic truffles we produce and ship are vacuum sealed with the food industry standards. This way our products are kept fresh for as long as possible.

Store your vacuum sealed magic truffles in a cool environment, preferably in the fridge. When the magic truffles are kept cool you can keep them for maximum of 3 months. After 3 months have expired the freshness of the product can no longer be guaranteed. Advice: eat them as soon as possible 😉

After breaking the seal the Magic truffles can be held in the fridge for maximum 3 days.

Never freeze your magic truffles as it will destroy its cell structure and diminish potency!

Can I dry Magic Truffles?

Unlike with magic mushrooms, we do not advise on drying, read on to find out why and whether you should consider it.

Drying trufles should be done with an air circulation device. Not by heat using a radiator or under sunlight for example because you would lose most of the potency.

You can keep them long after that, but they will turn into hard small stones so you need to grind them and then process them in something to eat or drink. Watch the dose as they are much more potent now per gram of course!
