psilocybetruffles , Truffles or Philosophers Stones are the underground growths or ‘sclerotia’ of certain Psilocybe mushroom species. Shroom guru Paul Stamets figured out how to cultivate them … and the rest is psychedelic history.
Just like shrooms, there are different species of magic truffles. Each contains varying levels of psilocybin, and some have the potential to launch users into a fully-fledged spiritual experience. This isn’t surprising, considering they contain such a powerful hallucinogen.
Psilocin can pass through the blood-brain barrier and acts as an agonist of several serotonin receptors. It’s able to achieve this mechanism of action due to its structural similarity to the neurotransmitter serotonin.
Researchers have detected psilocin in human blood around half an hour after psilocybin ingestion. Levels peak around 90 minutes after ingestion.
Science has yet to elucidate the exact mechanisms by which psilocin induces its psychoactive effects.
Research conducted at Imperial College London used functional magnetic resonance imaging to confirm that psilocin decreased activity and connectivity in the brain’s key connector hubs. psilocybetruffles
This may be the mechanism the molecule triggers to enable a state of unconstrained cognition.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF MAGIC TRUFFLES
Different types of truffles contain varying levels of psilocybin. It’s important to know which will offer a mellow experience, and which will catapult you into a psychedelic voyage. Let’s explore a few truffle species and their unique effects:
Hollandia is one of the most potent truffle varieties available. Its name stems from its location of origin—Holland; a nation that has a longstanding relationship with magic mushrooms and truffles.
Mexicana is perhaps the most well-known magic truffle species. The variety is native to South America where it’s long been used ceremonially. It’s perhaps the mildest truffle species, and produces a warm, fuzzy, and fun experience.
