Getting the most effect out of your Magic Truffles

From one of our fans:

Greetings trufflers! I recently had a great time with Truffle magic’s psilocybe hollandia and I must say that they are perhaps my favorite truffles to take. That’s quite a tricky statement to make because I enjoy all of the truffles for different reasons. There’s one for every mood and moment but for potency nothing beats the hollandia.

They perhaps suit the more experienced truffler if taken at full dose. However, they can be enjoyed by anyone as long as some key points are taken into consideration. When it comes to psychedelics, dose is extremely  important. One’s frame of mind and setting are also key but it is very important to take a dose that works for you and to consume the truffles in the correct way.

Each pack contains 15g of truffles. I have found that half a pack (7.5g) is a good general dose, however with the hollandia I have had amazing experiences taking around 3g even. It depends what you wish to achieve with your trip. If you wish to take a large dose and have a full on trip then, by all means, do what you feel and consume a higher dose. Make sure you create the right environment. Put the phone off the hook, have somewhere comfy to rest. I prefer having no music and very dim lights, but if you do choose to have music make sure it is appropriate.

Another thing to keep in mind is that for best results you should take the truffles on an empty stomach. Wait at least 4 hours after your last meal to take them. Or take the truffles first and eat a little while after. I’ve heard that it is not good to take the truffles with sweet things as it can reduce their effect. I have taken the truffles with banana’s before and not noticed any impact but in general it is best to take them on their own and to chew them down well. I like to eat them mindfully, focusing on what I’m doing. I strive to eat this way in general so it’s only natural I apply this to truffle munching.

On a practical note, if you do not wish to consume a whole bag at once and prefer to leave a considerable amount of time between your trips, to get the most out of one bag you could take a few simple steps to preserve them. The first is drying them with a dehydrator (on the lowest setting to preserve as much of the properties as possible). You could also freeze them, although I don’t really recommend this as when defrosted then can be gloopy and unappealing. But, hey if you don’t mind that go ahead! You could also make truffle oil by storing the truffles in a bottle of oil and leaving it to infuse. They should keep well this way stored away from heat and direct sunlight. Personally I think nothing is better than eating them fresh. If you don’t want to take them all at once, share them with a friend!

Happy truffling!

    Hi Carice,

    Hope you’re well.

    How long do you suggest I leave the truffles in oil for to infuse the oil and consume at a later date?

    Before ordering from TruffleMagic, I did a good amount of research on whether or not Hollandia truffles are an actual thing. Despite having seen some amazing and some terrible reviews(a couple people claimed that truffles are bunk), my curiosity got the better of me and I ordered my own.

    Needless to say, I will be ordering again! I have been recommending these left and right. A few friends and I suffered through the taste, walked to a local park, and arrived just in time to fall over into the grass and begin what we all agreed was the best day of our lives. Since two of us had taken only half a bag and the third had eaten 10 grams, we didn’t expect to be blown away, but we were–for a good six hours! As soon as I played my favorite song and closed my eyes the visuals began, but they were difficult to hold on to for a while because I was so ridiculously carefree. The euphoria was incredible. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much in my life. Much to my surprise, I found conversation to be extremely easy(in fact, I had lengthy conversations with several of my family members) and was even able to go to Starbucks a couple hours in.

    As for OEVs, they were relatively mild, mainly consisting of shifting patterns in the foliage and smudgy trails behind birds.

    Next time I will be dunking my brain in at least 15g of these beauties! Thank you TruffleMagic!!

    NOTE: Make sure to make tea out of these. I haven’t done it yet but am still struggling to get the taste out of my mouth 48 hours later.
