Of course, if this is your first time taking truffles, the unknown can be quite a daunting prospect. However, this guide will not only put your mind at rest, but will also heighten your enjoyment of your psychedelic journey.

  • Euphoria
  • Philosophical thoughts

  • Deep relaxation and serenity
  • Changes in perception of sound: things may sound more intense/enjoyable

  • Headache
  • Upset stomach

How To Dose Magic Truffles

How To Dose Magic Truffles

One of the most important factors when it comes to taking magic truffles is dosing. Again, this will vary from person to person. A dose you deem small might be enough to send someone else to the moon, or vice versa. And if a person isn't ready to have a full-on trip, it could make for an unpleasant experience.

As a rule of thumb, a mild dose of truffles is around 5 grams fresh. At this dose, some effects will be noticeable, but you won't experience a proper trip. For a medium dose, users should consider around 10 grams. For the strongest possible trip, 15 grams will almost definitely do the trick.

As is the case with most hallucinogens, you can always start with smaller amounts and build from there. However, for a more accurate dose, head to Zamnesia's Magic Mushroom Calculator.

Here, all you need to do is enter your weight, whether you have fresh or dried truffles (or mushrooms), and how big of a dose you desire. This dose can be anything from micro to high. Once you've entered your information, the calculator will give you an exact amount in grams. Now you can enjoy a trip suited to your preferences!

6 Tips For A Great Magic Truffle Trip

6 Tips For A Great Magic Truffle Trip

While dosing and an appreciation for the effects of truffles will get you far with your trip, we've put together 6 additional tips to heighten your experience even further. These are just a few pointers to keep in mind when preparing so you can truly relish your psilocybin experience.

1. Choose A Relaxed Setting

One of the most important aspects when it comes to tripping is setting. Truffles are not a party drug, so choosing somewhere safe, comfortable, and among good friends will make the entire experience much more enjoyable for all those involved. Being with people you know and trust in a familiar place allows everyone to unwind and open their minds to the effects of magic truffles. Taking truffles in an unknown or unsafe environment is a surefire way to experience an uncomfortable or “bad” trip.

2. Open Yourself Up To The Experience

First and foremost, you need to be in a positive headspace before tripping. If you’re in a good mood and feel relaxed, the truffles will undoubtedly work wonders for you. Of course, this brings us back to the point of who you decide to trip with. Teaming up with friends you can trust and be lighthearted with will increase your enjoyment immeasurably.

3. Set Aside Time

Make sure you're well-rested and have dedicated enough time to trip. Feeling as though you're against the clock may add some unwanted pressure or tension that could negatively impact your experience. For example, tripping after a stressful and busy day at work might not give you the results you're after. Choose a chill day that you can dedicate almost entirely to taking truffles, and you can't go wrong.

4. Take Magic Truffles On An Empty Stomach

It is advised not to eat prior to a trip, as having food in the stomach may lessen the effects of psilocybin or cause potential stomach discomfort. As a rule of thumb, it's best to wait around 3 hours after eating before taking magic truffles. This way, you can feel the full potency as intended.

5. Make Sure You Have A Trip Sitter

This is essential, especially for newcomers. Having someone sober and reliable in the room while you're tripping may sound like a bit of buzzkill. However, it has the complete opposite effect. The sitter simply ensures everything is okay, and is there to put everyone at ease and offer reassurance. So choose a sitter you can depend on for the duration of the trip, preferably someone who has previous tripping experience.

6. Don't Mix With Other Mind-Altering Substances

This one should really go without saying, but it's recommended not to mix other psychotropic substances with magic truffles. It may be tempting to drink alcohol beforehand to settle any first-time nerves, but we strongly advise against this. You want to have the purest psychedelic experience, with nothing else impeding it.

The same goes for taking other hallucinogens at the same time. This will only serve to unnecessarily complicate the experience. However, more experienced users sometimes smoke cannabis toward the end of their trip, but this is entirely down to preference.

What To Do In Case Of A Bad Trip

What To Do In Case Of A Bad Trip

As mentioned, everyone has their own tolerance for magic truffles, but sometimes negative emotions or anxiety can come to the fore. Of course, if you've followed our tips up to this point, you've arguably done everything you can to prevent a bad trip from happening. But what are the signs of a bad trip, and what can you do about it in the moment?

Don’T Panic

Don't Panic

This might sound obvious, but it's worth reminding yourself not to panic should you fall prey to a bad trip. Because of the introspective and thought-provoking nature of truffles, it can be very easy to overthink or have negative thoughts, especially at higher doses. These may seem all-consuming at the time, but it's important to remember that the effects are temporary, no matter how prominent they feel. With a few deep breaths and the presence of a trip sitter, it's easy to bring yourself down to Earth if you're feeling overwhelmed. Just take your time, and you'll be out of the bad trip before you know it.

Consume Sugar

Consume Sugar

In the midst of a bad trip, it is advisable to eat a sugary snack or consume a soft drink. It may sound like an old wives tale, but sugar can, in fact, reduce the impact of a bad trip. Once sugar is ingested, the brain releases dopamine, which provides an uplifting and positive feeling. This in itself is enough to reduce the effects of a bad trip. So make sure you keep some sugary treats nearby!

Change Your Setting

Change Your Setting

Lastly, another method of dealing with a bad trip is to change your surroundings. Now, we don't mean get your coat on and head to your local bar. Just maybe head to another area of the house, sit down, and chill out. Or, better yet, head outside if the weather’s nice! This is often enough to distract the brain and reinforce some positive thinking.

Overall, it is important to remember that the feelings associated with a bad trip will pass. It’s not a permanent state. In fact, some people believe there’s no such thing as a bad trip, and that every trip has something introspective to offer, even if the emotions experienced during the event were negative.
