Unsurprisingly, these truffles originate in Mexico. The mushrooms were discovered in the Oaxaca region in 1958 by the great psychedelic pioneer R. Gordon Wasson, and the sclerotia by another of the Greats, ‘father of LSD’ Albert Hofmann, who studied and found a way to grow them.
Use of this original teonanacatl or ‘Flesh of the Gods’ was brutally suppressed by the Catholic Spaniards but survived underground. It was not until the 1930s that their use was rediscovered by Western researchers.
The P. mexicana mushroom species also provided the first psychedelic trip Timothy Leary ever took (in 1960), about which he declared: “In four hours I learned more about the mind, the brain, and its structures than I was able to in the 15 preceding years as a busy psychologist.”
EFFECTS OF PSYCHEDELIC TRUFFLES
Magic Truffles all contain a good dose of psilocybin and they're effects are generally quite similar. Several reports have suggested that some varieties offer more halluciogenic or 'chatty' experiences than others though. In the end, a trip is very personal and expectations, metabolism and previous use can heavily influence a trip.
Typically effects come on within 45 minutes after use, depending on your last meal and dose. After onset, your trip will plateau and then gradually diminish over a period of about 4 to 6 hours.
A trip usually includes one or more of the following effects: increased sensory sensation (especially colour and sound), periods of high energy and hilarity, intense visions that can be perceived even when they eyes are closed and feelings of universal connectivity.
MAGIC TRUFFLES ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
The psychedelic compound that is responsible for the psychoactive effects in Magic Truffles is psilocybin. Psilocybin is a triptamine that is akin to DMT, a a naturally occuring neurotransmitter in the human body. All truffles are freshly packed in batches of 15g, though some weightloss may occur during storage and transit as water is lost. The active ingredient will remain intact however.
No need to worry about hangovers; psilocybin creates no harmful metabolites or byproducts, so is non-toxic to the body. Be prepared to change your outlook on life though!
USING YOUR MEXICANA TRUFFLES RIGHT
Keep your Magic Truffles fresh by storing them in your fridge prior to use. Only 10g (about 2/3 of a 15g pack) is enough for a normal trip. Experienced psychonauts usually take 15g for a stronger experience. Psychedelic Truffles can be taken raw (on an empty stomach) or brewed into a tea by shredding and boiling them gently for 20 minutes. However, if you don't like their taste, you can use honey, fruit yoghurt, orange juice or chai tea to make their flavour.
PLEASE NOTE: Magic Truffles shouldn't be used when nursing or pregnant. Similarly, we discourage use of them in with alcohol or other stimulations, if you are depressed or if you are taking any medication. You should also avoid driving or using tools while under the influence of psilocybin. This substance is not suitable for minors and we highly recommend getting a friend to 'trip sit' for your first experience. Tolerance may develop if used frequently and for this reason, we recommend to wait at least 1 week after consumption before your next trip.
*All our Magic Truffles are freshly packed. Unopened, you can keep them in your fridge for about 2 months. Once opened however, the truffles can only be kept for a few more days.

Hi! Once the vacuum pack has been opened, how long can I keep the truffles before finishing them?
Unopened, truffles can be stored 2-3 months in a cool and dark place. Once a packet is opened, it can only be kept for a couple more days. Dried they can be kept for at least one year. Please note though that, the longer you store them, the less potent they will become.
To dry the truffles you need to find a dry place and lay them out on kitchen towels and make sure they're not touching each other. Depending on the surroundings, drying may take anywhere from between 3 to 7 days. Make sure to change the kitchen towels every other day.
The best way to store dried truffles is in an airtight container in the dark.
Dried Magic Truffles have 50%-70% less weight, so therefore the dosage should be halved.

Thanks for for this great site! For how long can I have the Magic Truffles before I have to eat them? And can I put them in the fridge or the freezer?
All our Magic Truffles are fresh and vacuum packed in quantities of 15 grams. They can be stored 2-3 months in a cool and dark place (for example the refrigerator). Please do not freeze! Freezing the product will cause the taste, texture and quality of the product to suffer.
