What Are Magic Truffles?
Magic truffles, also known as psilocybin truffles, are a class of psychoactive fungus containing the psychedelic molecules psilocybin and psilocin.
Magic truffles are related to the more well-known psychedelic, magic mushrooms. While they both belong to the same species of psychoactive fungi, magic truffles are simply at a different stage of fungal development than magic mushrooms. Truffles are a dormant form of fungus, known as sclerotia, that store food reserves in a hardened mass until the environment is suitable for the growth of mushrooms.
Magic truffles are the transformational substances used at the Synthesis retreat in Amsterdam, due to their legal status and powerful psychedelic effects
What Is The Magic Truffle Experience Like?
Since magic truffles contain exactly the same active ingredients as magic mushrooms (mainly psilocybin), the quality of the magic truffle trip is reported to be very similar.
Magic truffles can be ingested in various ways. They can be eaten fresh, brewed into a tea, or dried truffles can be packed into capsules. At Synthesis, truffles are ingested as a ginger-infused tea; a relatively pleasant administration, which helps to mask the strong, often earthy magic truffles taste. The ginger in the magic truffles tea also helps to settle the stomach, as some people can experience nausea from psilocybin truffles. The truffle tea also makes it convenient for participants to re-dose if required; a second cup can be taken during the session.
the’ effects can be intense. Users describe profound changes in perception, including bodily sensations, deep emotional insights and mystical experiences. Some people reach a new understanding of their inner life or their outer world during the experience itself; for others, these individualized insights dawn or develop later, with the aid of reinterpretation and integration techniques.
During a psilocybin trip, rushes of emotion are particularly common, including euphoria and a sense of total immersion in your surroundings. These are often accompanied by visual changes; the boundaries between shapes may blur, the air may take on a substantial, hazy quality. Surfaces may develop swirling patterns. Your thoughts may surprise you; drawing connections between seemingly disparate ideas, or spinning out into personal epiphanies. Your sense of self may even dissolve altogether as you become one with your surroundings: a process known as ego-dissolution.
The colors you see may be brighter, more intense, or change completely. Characters that are encountered in this altered state of consciousness may morph, take on new significances or identities; objects may feel different to touch. You may be drawn towards exploring the outdoors; the beauty of plants and flowers can become mesmeric.
The psychedelic trip can last between four to eight hours, depending on the dose and the individual’s sensitivity. The profound nature of the experience is amplified by the carefully crafted environment at Synthesis, guiding participants through a journey that will stay with them for long after the retreat is over.
