Psilocybe Mexicana, "Flesh of the Gods"
What is a truffle?
Truffles are a type of fungus of the family group Scletoria. Scletoria is a fungus that forms between the fungal threads in the soil. The scletoria thus grows between the mycelium, hyphae, or mycellium. The Scletoria is actually a storage mechanism for the fungus, because under good conditions the mycelium would not form Scletoria, but mushrooms. When the conditions are bad, the mycellium produces Scletoria as a storage place for nutrients for better times. A truffle is not actually a truffle, but one by phase of the mushroom. Popularly, Sceltoria are called magic truffles because of their effect.
Psilocybin is the active ingredient in truffles. Psilocybin is a triptamine (neurotransmitter) that is also produced by our body. In the body, the Psilocybin is converted into psilocin before it acts as an agonist on your serotonin receptors.
First, take half a dose to test your response. The active ingredient psilocin will set in after about 45 minutes. If the effect is satisfactory at that time, the rest can be consumed, or it can be decided to stick to the initial portion. Make sure you take enough time for the effects to set in before you take the plunge.
Truffle users often describe the effects as: attacks of hilarity, feelings of universal connection, visions when closing their eyes, altered perception of color and sound, introspective thoughts and euphoric feelings.
The effects of the truffle will be noticeable for about 3 to 8 hours depending on the dose, body weight and mental state of the user.
The truffles are vacuum packed and can be kept for at least 30 days. Storage advice: dark and between 2 ° C and 4 ° C. After opening the packaging, the truffles have a limited shelf life
The use of truffle is strongly discouraged if you are depressed, on medication, in combination with other substances, are pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoid driving motorized vehicles after using truffles. Truffles are not suitable for minors (under 18 years old). Be sensible and only use truffles if you have made the right preparations. When using truffles for the first time, it is wise to have someone with them, often referred to as a tripsitter.
