magic TRUFFLES dosage and shrooms DOSING guide


This article serves as a magic truffles dosage guide and aims to underline the importance of cautiously familiarizing yourself with psychedelic truffles and carefully exploring how you react to them. Each psilocybin truffle journey or magic mushroom trip is unique, and its outcome depends entirely on the moment, the person, and the set and setting. Of paramount importance is the dosage of magic truffles or magic mushrooms, among many other parameters. In this article, we discuss microdosing, low dosing, mid dosing, and high dosing psilocybin.

When applied appropriately, psilocybin truffles can offer a gentle introduction into the psychedelic realm. The experience comes up in waves, gently going back and forth during the entry phase, which allows the mind to slowly adjust, surrender and let go.

In general, psilocybin is considered safe, but there are circumstances that can lead to hazardous situations. This is why it is essential to conduct thorough research, be aware of appropriate dosages, consider potential contraindications, and to have a trusted support system in place.

The difference between magic truffles and dried magic mushrooms

An important fact to keep in the forefront of your mind regarding dosing, is that general information available on the Internet differentiates between dried mushrooms and fresh truffles. Dosing with fresh truffles should be multiplied by a factor of 7 compared to dried mushrooms. We highly recommend to double check with an experienced person what the exact dosage is you have in mind before you decide to embark on your journey.


Psilocybin truffles and mushrooms

According to recent Dutch research, psilocybin is non-toxic and not addictive. So far, not a single case of overdose has been reported. Psilocybin has anti-inflammatory effects and supposedly stimulates neurogenesis. In terms of safety and health impact it ranks number one compared to other substances.

First things first

Yep. We used to crumble into a full state of cringe too as we were about to set our latest mischievous plan in motion, when my late grandfather would barge and said; first things first. Maybe we had to finish some chores. Or check our safety belts. Anyway, he was right.

In this case, first determine your intention. The right dosage of shrooms or truffles for your psychedelic trip entirely depends on what you’re looking to learn from it. If you wish to enjoy a romantic evening of deep listening to music with a loved one, I can assure you that you may want to tone down your dosage, compared to, let’s say, when you’re looking to dive deep into the infinite realms of consciousness where you’re unable to distinguish who’s who and what time, identity or boundaries ever even meant in the first place. 

Setting your intention before taking psychedelic truffles or mushrooms

Your intention can be a single phrase you can always remember, or even one word. An intention is not a goal with a specific outcome, but rather a broad theme with a spectrum of possible forthcoming insights and scenarios. During a psychedelic journey, you can experience an influx of ideas. An intention can help you stay grounded and give meaning to your journey. It can also be an aspect of yourself that you would like to learn more about.

Microdosing – A Gentle Practice with Measured Steps

Microdosing involves taking very small amounts of psilocybin truffles or magic mushrooms, typically about 1/10 to 1/20 of a regular dose. For many, this translates to somewhere between 0.1 to 0.4 grams of dried mushrooms or about 0.5 to 1,5 grams of fresh truffles. This practice aims to boost mood, creativity, and focus without inducing the strong psychedelic effects associated with higher doses. The small amount taken in microdosing is meant to provide subtle, beneficial shifts in mood and cognition, making daily tasks, problem-solving, or routine activities feel more engaging or manageable. Unlike the intense visions or deep self-reflection triggered by higher doses, microdosing offers a gentle enhancement of one’s regular state, promoting a sense of wellbeing and mental clarity. It’s crucial to maintain this micro dosage to ensure safety and to achieve the desired gentle effects. The growing popularity of microdosing is a testament to individuals seeking mild, supportive means to enhance their wellbeing and performance in their daily lives. If you’re interested in microdosing, then have a look at our Microdosing Starterbox.

Low dose truffles – Exploration

A low dose consists of approximately 7 grams of truffles containing natural psilocybin. As it takes effect, you will notice slight alterations in your visual perception, lights and colours become more vivid and fuller, you’ll feel mildly euphoric, your senses will sharpen and you’ll see more details in your surroundings. Music may take on a whole new meaning as new patterns and realisations surface to your awareness.

Mid dose truffles – Profound Journey

The mid dose consists of approximately 14 grams of truffles containing natural psilocybin which we find to be a well-balanced dose for a profound psychedelic exploration. With this dosage, you can dive deeper into your mind. We suggest having a sitter to help you in case you need something in this altered state. This is a dose we recommend when you already have some experience with psychedelic substances. If you’re interested in mid dosing, then have a look at our Mid Dosing Starterbox.

High dose truffles – Deep dive

A high dose, approximately 21 grams (or more) of psilocybin-containing truffles, should only be considered when you are sufficiently experienced with psychedelics. A high dose will take you beyond visual hallucinations and into the realm of the metaphysical. This can be highly transformative and sometimes challenging. We strongly recommend having a sitter to accompany you.

Weight-based Dosage Guidelines for Magic Truffles

The ideal dosage for magic truffles varies with an individual’s weight. Heavier individuals might need a larger dose to feel the intended effects compared to lighter ones. This is due to the psychoactive substances in magic truffles, mainly psilocybin, spreading throughout the body, with larger body mass potentially diluting the effects. Therefore, adjusting dosage based on weight can help attain the desired mental and physical effects, making the experience safer and more rewarding.

Finding the right trip sitter

When planning a psychedelic journey, no matter what dosing you have in mind, you may prefer to have someone with you. We call this a sitter, or a facilitator.  A trip sitter is a person that serves as a steady and supportive presence while you experience your journey. Someone who ensures your safety and helps out with whatever you may need. There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a sitter that suits you. We’ve defined a few guidelines on finding the right sitter in this article.
