Psilocybe mexicana A is the mushroom species that Dr. Albert Hofmann made world famous in 1958 when he was the first to isolate two chemicals from this fungus. These chemicals are now known as psilocin and psilocybin. P. mexicana A is known to produce sclerotia in a high quantity in the optimal circumstances.
The mushrooms of the Psilocybe mexicanae have been used for thousands of years by the natives of central America and there is some evidence the these are the “Teonanácatl” that they have discribed in their traditions. Teonanácatl has been translated to “Flesh of the Gods”, a name familiar to most psychonauts.

Effects of Magic Truffles
The active compounds in Magic Truffles are psilocin and psilocybin. Both compounds are easily absorbed in the human body and are responsible for the psychoactive effects of Magic Truffles. Read more about psilocin and psilocybin.
In low doses, eating Magic Truffles can induce giggly and stoned feelings. In this state, it is still easy to communicate and you are still aware of your environment. In higher doses, Magic Truffles transform reality and can cause hallucinations.
The first effects of Magic Truffles can be felt after 30 minutes (or sometimes even after 10 minutes) after consumption. These effects can include (but are not limited to) sweaty palms, sighing, cold shivers, a feeling of unrest and nausea. As the effects intensify, the trip moves towards euphoria and happiness, but feelings of anxiety can occur as well. Visions, hallucinations and deep connections to fellow psychonauts are possible effects.
After an hour, the effects of Magic Truffles usually stop intensifying and become more stable. They generally last for about 3 to 5 hours, depending on the consumed amount. After this time, it takes about 1 to 2 hours for the effects to fade. This fading often occurs in waves, which may suggest the trip is ending, before the effects surge back again. For this reason, plan your trip well and make sure you have no other business to attend to on the day you will trip on Truffles.
The first hour of your trip, you may experience feelings of nausea or sickness. This feeling usually passes as the effects of Magic Truffles intensify.
What you will see and feel during a Magic Truffle trip greatly depends on your mindset and the setting of your trip. Your mental state in the days before your trip and the surroundings of the place where you trip directly influence your experiences. A busy and demanding week can result in a slightly anxious, stressful trip, but can also close the week with new insights and energy.
In sum, only use Magic Truffles if you feel mentally balanced and relaxed. Only take Magic Truffles in a familiar or quiet place, preferably with people you know and trust. There is nothing more frustrating than annoyance between people while you are tripping.

A truffle or sclerotium is a living product. It might be possible that air (especially CO²) is trapped inside the package. This will make the sclerotia continue to grow and white “hairs” will appear on the outside of the truffles. This is the mycelium and shows the truffles are healthy.
