There are many people who really don’t know the difference between a magic mushroom and a magic truffle. Take note that differences that they have with each other are subtle. Both do contain psychoactive components like psilocin and psilocybin. One of the main difference that they have is that the Psilocybe Cubensis (magic mushrooms) mycelium develops underground. Later on, in its development, it produces mushrooms above the ground.
Meanwhile, magic truffles or Psilocybe Tampaneniss are the ones that grow like the cubensis. What is different is that they are capable of producing truffles underground. Magic truffles have dense and concentrated mycelia. The mycelium is the one that creates the truffles through small wires. Truffles are being created so that it can resist bad weather conditions. Once the conditions become better, then it is the mycelium that then creates mushroom above the earth.
The Effects of Truffles and Mushrooms
Theoretically speaking, truffles and mushrooms basically have the same effect. But for people who have already tried both, they can tell that they have had a different experience with truffles and shrooms. There are individuals who have reported that they experienced fewer visuals in truffles compared to that in shrooms. There are also some people who said that they have an easier experience with truffles compared to that of shrooms. Always remember that different individual can have different reactions regardless if it is a truffle or a shroom. And that is why it is better not to assume on which is the more potent one. Always based everything on the experience that you had. You also have to remember that when truffles are consumed more than 30 grams, then expect to have a strong hallucinatory reaction to it.
Finding Psilocybe Tampanensis in the wild can be quite tricky and challenging since they are considered to be rare outside. Every other variety coming from this strain can have a nutty flavor and produce a sharp and long-lasting aftertaste. According to the study, Psilocybe Tampanensis can give you visuals that can be very intense. There are individuals who said that they experienced sharpened senses after taking in truffles. People who have tried it reported that the world looks and feel totally different. Warm shivers and euphoria are also the common effects that Psilocybe Tampanensis have on the users. Truffles can give you a creative boost and it will also be able to give you spiritual enlightenment. There are even some who have a deeper understating of how the universe works with higher doses of Psilocybe Tampanensis. This is the reason why this truffle is considered to be a philosopher’s stone.
Strength, Dosage, and Usage
One of the stronger strains of truffles is the Psilocybe tampanensis. On a scale of 1-5 where 5 is the strongest, it can clock in at 3.5. If it is your first time trying out this truffle then 7.5 grams is sufficient enough to give you that initial psychedelic experience. If you are also looking for a medium strong trip then you should ty around 10 grams. But if it is propulsion of your spirit to unknown heights is what you would want to experience then a full load of 15 grams is what you need to consume. One of the best ways for you to consume truffles is by chewing it well and swallowing. There are also some that prefer making a tea out of their truffles. Take note that the effects are stronger if the surface area is wider. You have to remember not to add boiling water into it since it will destroy the substance of the truffles. A hot ware will simply do the trick.
Magic mushrooms, on the other hand, are harvested in three layers. Each of the harvests that you will do will also yield varying amounts of the psychoactive substance. For this very reason, you are also able to get unpredictable effects while using them. When taking a look at magic truffles though, they are the ones that have a consistent amount of psychoactive substance in them which helps in predicting its effects easier depending on the amount that you will take in. Over 200 different mushrooms have different psilocybin concentration on them. The human body converts this substance into psilocin which has the same effect of serotonin once it reaches the brain.
You have to remember that the psilocybin effects will vary depending also on the individual mental, emotional state, and the environment. Both magic truffles and magic mushrooms though when taken in the right way can provide you with the same effects both visual and spiritual. Just make sure that you are taking it in a setting or place where you feel secure and comfortable. You also need to make sure that you are in a good mood hen taking truffles and shrooms. Any negative thoughts and emotions can lead to bad trips.
