Dosage & Effects

Magic truffles have the same "active ingredient" as magic mushrooms, psilocybin, this is what gives both mushrooms and truffles their powerful effects. The psychedelic effects of psilocybin can be hard to describe; trippy is the first word that comes to mind. The effects can range from laughter and giggly happy high feeling to a full on psychedelic trip with strong visual hallucinations. The effects normally last for 4 to 6 hours.

Beginners are advised to take between 5 grams and 10 grams, where as experienced trippers can take up to 15 grams. The lighter doses will give a milder "high" experience, where as a stronger dose will give you a full on trip!

Stay Safe

It's best to stay inside somewhere you feel safe the first time you take magic truffles, and be with people you trust. If you're enjoying you trip head out into the city and explore, but be safe and stay with a friend. If you don't like the effects of your trip and want to come back to normal quickly you should drink or eat something sweet, as sugar will reduce the strength of the effect.


Tips For A Better Trip

  • Do not eat for a couple of hours before taking your truffles, as you’ll have a more intense trip on an empty stomach.
  • Remember you can always take more but you can't take less once you've already had them - start slowly.
  • Stay in a safe place with people you trust.
  • Only buy your magic truffles from a real smartshop to get the best quality for the best price!
