Sclerotia, also known as Magic Truffles or Philosophers Stones are a hallucinogenic product from Mother Nature. Sclerotia act on the consciousness giving a more intense conscious experience of the world and circumstances around. Many users find this experience wholesome and very valuable.
Ten minutes to one hour after consumption you will start to notice the first effects, seeing and hearing things better and more intensely. You'll notice a rapid change in the perception of ordinary reality. This often comes down to a good series of laughs. This cheerful start soon transcends into confused feelings. This is due to reality looking so different, your mind just cannot grasp it anymore. As the outer confusion intensifies, the inner visions (best seen in a dark room) become clearer. The nature of the trip depends upon the person taking it and the mood or state of mind that person is in. So your experience could very well be quite different from what you read here or hear from other people. The trip takes about 6 hours and wears down gradually. The interval between hallucinations gets longer, until they disappear completely.
To someone who has never tried any hallucinogen a trip is hard to explain, but here is a list of effects one could experience when on magic mushrooms:
- A change in mood, either euphoria or the opposite (bad trip);
- A dreamy state, loss of attention and concentration, slow thinking, feelings of unreality or depersonalisation;
- Blurred vision, brighter colours, longer afterimages and sharp definition of objects;
- Increased hearing abilities;
- Colourful, kaleidoscopic patterns seen with eyes closed, and sometimes even on objects or surfaces in field of vision;
- Incoordination, difficult and tremulous speech;
- Great empathy, or even an unusual ability to perceive the feelings of people in the environment;
- A few auditory hallucinations;
- An uncontrollable urge to laugh;
- Alternately feeling hot and cold.
The best way to use truffles is to eat them, preferably on an empty stomach for full effect. But this doesn't taste that well, and sometimes leaves a heavy feeling in the stomach, which can be a disturbing sensation while tripping. Although psilocybin is sensitive to heating, it's possible to make truffle tea, which is more tasty and easy to digest than fresh or dried truffles. Boil some water, turn the heat down and add the (shredded) truffles. Let them boil softly for about 20 minutes. You can then add a little honey or flavoured tea and drink the tea. A better and easier method is to simply poor some very hot water on a portion of fine shredded truffles in a cup, let it soak for at least 15 minutes, and then add some (herbal) tea for flavour.
Although the body can handle psilocybin quite well, the mind can get quite confused. It is important to consider that the effects may lead to a confrontation with yourself, allowing hidden emotions to come out in the forefront including feelings of fear, anguish or panic. In order to prevent such experiences it is advisable to use sclerotia only when you are feeling well and comfortable in trusted and familiar circumstances at home or in nature and in good company, preferably with a sober sitter nearby.
Do not use when pregnant, nursing, depressed, on medication, driving motorized vehicles, under 18 years old, in combination with stimulants or alcohol. The first time you use truffles make sure someone with more experience is around in case you need help, for example when you feel sick or scared. Treat the truffles with respect, be alert to your environment and help those who take it for the first time.
All sclerotia for Freshbox are grown by carefully selected, very experienced cultivators. Immediately after harvesting we pack and distribute the truffles in handy Freshbox boxes. Unlike most other brands, we do not suffocate sclerotia - that are actually still alive - by vacuum packing, but the 'expiration' date on the back of each box guarantees freshness.
The fresh truffles must be kept in the refrigerator.
