Magic Truffles | Effects, Use, Dosage, Consumption & How To Buy Online

Posted under: News and Science

In this blog we review sclerotium (plural: sclerotia) better known as Magic Truffles. Magic Truffles bloomed on the psychedelic market after the Dutch legal restrictions on Magic Mushrooms in the year of 2008. The government banned Magic Mushrooms from the smartshops but left the sales of Magic Truffles untouched. Producers and shops then massively promoted the Magic Truffles which lead to their world famous status nowadays.

What is a Magic Truffle?

Magic Mushrooms and Magic Truffles are often confused with each other. Magic Truffles (also known as Philosopher’s Stones and Psilocybe Tampanensis) are sclerotia and produced from different strains which grow underground. Like all organisms fungus spores seek to reproduce, but environmental conditions are not always ideal to do so. If the substrate is to dry, cold, hot or poor in nutricion the mycelium will grow inwards. Forming a tangled clump where food and water gets stored, called sclerotium. These hard structures are able to survive in harsh environmental conditions until the time is right to send forth mushrooms.

How are the Magic Truffles produced?

When Magic Truffles are produced in a laboratory, the mycologist keeps the grow bags with the substrate and spores in a constant temperature of 28 degrees Celsius to accelerate the growth of the mycelium. To prevent the growth of actual mushrooms they keep the microclimate inside of the growing bags on a certain level, so that that the conditions are not suitable to produce mushrooms. When the bags are fully colonized with mycelium they are stored in a dark place for at least five months before the sclerotia is mature. When the Magic Mushrooms are mature the bags are opened. The sclerotia are harvested from their substrate and washed with water and a soft brush before they are packed for distribution and consumption.

Why are they called Magic Truffles and what are the effects?

The big difference between normal eatable Truffles and Magic Truffles is that the ‘magic’ strains contain psilocybin and psilocin. These two substances can create a psychedelic experience for the person who consumes it. Do you want to know more about the effects, chemical structures and the difference between them?

All the other Magic Truffle strains that are being sold under the names like: Hollandia Truffles, Fantasia, Utopia, Pajaritos, Pandora and Mokum all come from one of the named strain above. The difference is that they might be cultivated on different substrate or had a longer fruiting time for the favorable characteristics. 

For example we sell the ‘Dragons Dynamite’ that are cultivated for more potency. 

How to use Magic Truffles?

When you want to consume Magic Truffles there are a couple of things that you need to know and be aware of. In our responsible use infographic you can find all the needed info for save usage (so please read this).

Magic Truffles dosage and consumption

Our packages contain 15 grams of fresh Magic Truffles. This is the ‘normal’ dosage for a good and pleasant trip. If you are an unexperienced user we advise you to start with 2/3 (10 grams) of the package. Please note that these numbers are indications and that the strength of the trip varies from person to person. To get the best results it’s best to consume the Magic Truffles on an empty stomach.

There are two ways standard ways of consumption:
- Chew: This way is the most common. Important is that you need to chew the Magic Truffles really well (which means as long as possible). The enzymes in your mouth fluid extract the psilocybin which will help your body digesting it faster. The taste is sour so have a glass of water while consuming them.
- Tea: If you don’t want to eat the Magic Truffles you can also extract tea out of them. Boil some water and let it cool off for some minutes. Cut the preferred amount of Magic Truffles in small pieces and put them in the water. Now put the mixture in a small pan and heat it up. Make sure the water does not cook. This will remove the psilocybin! Let it stand for about 10-15 minutes and then filter the water into a cup. You can now add a tea flavor to your Magic Truffle tea or use some honey for a better taste.

The effects will take 15-45 minutes before they are noticeable and last for 5-7 hours.
