A new study suggests psilocybin, the mind-altering component of magic mushrooms, can reduce symptoms of treatment-resistant depression in people with cancer. It can also decrease cancer-related distress, improve spiritual wellbeing and increase quality of life.
What is psilocybin truffle?
A psilocybin truffle is a small mushroom that grows underground and contains psilocybin, the main alkaloid found in mushrooms that have hallucinogenic effects. This compound helps you to explore your inner world and deepens your connection to yourself, others and nature.
The effects of psilocybin truffles are very similar to magic mushrooms, but each may differ in trip length, consistency and potency.
They also contain a lower concentration of psilocybin than magic mushrooms. This can cause the experience to be less intense but still enough to produce a profound psychedelic journey that should be approached with guidance.
Psilocybin truffles are legal in the Netherlands and produced by dedicated manufacturers, which makes them a safer alternative to magic mushrooms. They are the ideal psychedelic for retreats because they are dosed accurately and provide a reliable, controlled dose of psilocybin.
Why do I need to take psilocybin truffles twice?
Magic truffles are the psilocybin-containing sclerotia of psilocybin mushrooms. While mushrooms are the above-ground fruiting bodies, sclerotia are the dense mass of mycelium that fungi grow underground and store nutrients.
Unlike mushrooms, which can be eaten fresh, truffles must be dried before consumption. Once dried, psilocybin concentrations can drop by up to 90%, so it’s important to consume them in small doses.
Holland-based psychedelic center Synthesis recently surveyed retreat guests and found that magic truffles improve sleep, decrease rumination on negativity, and prompt people to pursue healthier lifestyle habits. As a result, psilocybin truffles have become one of the most popular hallucinogenic psychedelics available in the Netherlands.
What are the effects of psilocybin?
Psilocybin activates serotonin receptors in the brain, which can cause emotional responses such as euphoria and drowsiness. It also alters how people perceive things around them, such as objects and people that are in their environment.
Studies have found that psilocybin can reduce anxiety and depression in the context of cancer-related psychiatric distress. One study found that 80% of patients experienced “significant decreases” in their symptoms after a single guided dose.
Tangerine Retreat provides three- to five-day psychedelic retreats, which include one or two psilocybin ceremonies. It aims to provide a healing environment that helps participants relax, dive into their emotions, and discover themselves.
How do you take psilocybin?
If you want to consume psilocybin mushrooms, it is best to do so in a safe and supportive environment with trusted people or under the supervision of qualified professionals. It is also advisable to have a light meal without alcohol 1-2 hours before taking mushrooms to reduce the risk of adverse effects.
Magic mushrooms can be consumed in different ways, including raw or cooked, or infused into a drink such as tea. Infusing magic mushrooms into liquid form can be a great option for beginners and those who want to experience the full effects of psilocybin. (1)
Does psilocybin help with depression?
Psilocybin has been shown to help treat patients who have treatment-resistant depression, which often leads to self-harming behavior or suicidal ideation. This is because antidepressants dull positive feelings and make you feel numb, but psilocybin can help people reconnect with their emotions.
The effects of psilocybin can last for weeks or months after taking it. This is because it can disrupt the way your brain perceives the world, making you see things differently.
Moreover, it can lead to hallucinations and flashbacks that can remain after you stop using psilocybin. These can be very distressing and can require immediate medical attention.
Several studies have found that psilocybin has an enduring effect on your personality. For example, it appears to elevate a personality quality known as openness, which encompasses sensitivity and imagination. It also may lead to improved emotional function, according to a study by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers. (2)
