Discover the Positive Effects of Microdosing with Truffles and Mushrooms
Magic mushrooms and truffles have a long history of indigenous use, especially in ancient Mesoamerican cultures like the Aztecs and Maya, where they were considered sacred and referred to as the “Holy Children.” Today, more and more people are exploring the benefits of microdosing with psilocybin for well-being, creativity, and mental clarity.
What is Microdosing with Truffles and Mushrooms?
Do you want to explore the wonderful world of microdosing with truffles and psilocybin mushrooms? Below, I provide insights into how to microdose with psilocybin, the positive effects, and answer common questions.
Psilocybin and Its Benefits
Psilocybin, the natural psychoactive compound in magic mushrooms and truffles, is known for its psychedelic effects. However, microdosing with truffles and mushrooms is an emerging practice aimed at promoting well-being and creativity without the hallucinogenic effects. Positive effects may include increased creativity, improved focus, emotional well-being, increased energy, and inner insights.
How to Microdose with Truffles and Mushrooms
Truffles come in vacuum packaging and should be consumed fresh on an empty stomach. You consume approximately 0.25 to 2-3 grams.
For mushrooms, they should be dried first and then ground to ensure consistent psilocybin concentration. Then you can take the powder, make capsules, or create a tincture. The amount ranges from 0.05 to 0.4 grams of powder, and the number of drops depends on the strength of your tincture.
Microdosing with truffles and mushrooms is often done according to a schedule or protocol, which includes 1 to 3 rest days between doses. Below are different protocols:
Difference Between Truffles and Mushrooms
Magic mushrooms and truffles contain psychoactive compounds, with psilocybin being the most important, which is converted into psilocin in the body. Truffles, also known as sclerotia, are underground structures of certain mushrooms. They grow underground and can develop into magic mushrooms under the right conditions. However, truffles often continue to grow underground as a self-protective mechanism.
In the Netherlands, truffles are legal, while magic mushrooms are not. However, mushroom grow kits are legal. It’s important to note:
- Truffles can generally cause more side effects, such as nausea, headaches, and irritability.
- Truffles are vacuum-sealed and have a shelf life of about 3 months. Once opened, they should be consumed within 2-3 days. Mushroom powder has a longer shelf life.
Differences with Other Plant Medicines
Truffles and mushrooms grow in or directly from the ground, giving them grounding energy. They keep you firmly rooted in the earth. This is in contrast to, for example, de caapi van de ayahuasca which grows towards the sky. Mushrooms are often called “the Children” because of their playful, no-nonsense energy. You’ll get a lot done with truffles and mushrooms. There’s also a lot of action in truffles and mushrooms. They literally connect you to the here and now, pushing obsessive thoughts, worries, and fears into the background. You think less and do more. They provide you with determination. At the same time, they are a natural plant medicine that provides gentleness and relaxation, suitable for introspection. This is different from, for example, 1P-LSD which is semi-synthetic. If you want to enhance your focus, concentration, and productivity in a gentle way, then truffles or mushrooms are your ideal microdosing partners.
The Importance of Guidance
Guidance is essential for a safe and effective microdosing experience. A microdosing coach or therapist can help you find your sweet spot quickly, tailor your protocol to your specific needs, and provide a loving mirror for challenges and issues. The Microdosing Coach offers various forms of guidance to support you on this path.
