Random information on the term “Magic mushroom”:
Magic truffles are the sclerotia of Psilocybin mushrooms that are not technically the same as “mushrooms”. They are masses of mycelium that contain the hallucinogenic chemicals psilocybin and psilocin.
In October 2007, the prohibition of hallucinogenic or “magic mushrooms” was announced by the Dutch authorities. The ban on mushrooms did not outlaw the hallucinogenic species in sclerotium form, due to authorities believing it to be weaker than the mushrooms. Psilocybin truffles which once made little sales became the only legal option to produce. Today, smart shops in the Netherlands offer magic truffles as a legal alternative to the outlawed mushrooms.
The truffles are usually eaten raw. Most people describe the taste of truffles as unappetising. After 15 minutes it starts to work slowly and between 30 and 60 minutes the trip starts. If it is taken as a tea, the effect can start more quickly. The first effects are: the sounds flow into each other, a euphoric feeling, weaker muscles and relaxation. Objects begin to wave, colors are more intense. The effect is jerky and is therefore more intense one moment than the next. The trip lasts 3-6 hours and it takes at least 16 hours for the user to completely sober up and the reaction speed to normal. The effect decreases if it is done more than a few times in a short time.
