A lot of people – even authorities – often fail to see the difference between magic truffles and magic mushrooms.
Both shrooms and truffles contain the psychedelic psychoactive compounds psilocyn, psilocybin,¬†baeocystin and¬†norbaeocystin. Both are fungi, but in a different way.
Biologically the best way to explain a truffle, is that it’s the “survival-mechanism” of a grown fungus, A fungus can grow out to be a mushroom, but when the mycelium (white threads) of a fungus can’t get enough oxigen and other nutrition to survive, then under the right circumstances it will create a¬†fungal fruit body that develops underground. That fruit body is called sclerotia or truffle. The truffle needs a couple of months to gain full potency. The Psilocybe hollandia needs no less than 10 months to achieve its full potency, making it the strongest magic truffle on the planet.
There is also a urban legend that magic truffles are weaker than magic shrooms. This is not necessarily true. The¬†difference between magic truffles and magic mushrooms has nothing to do with strength.¬†A shroom grows in various stages, with the last stage being the most potent but not equally potent on every shroom. Truffles of the same strain all have more or less the same potency, this is why truffles are much easier to dose and therefore safer to consume.
There have been growers with low quality truffles in the past, which is bad for the reputation of Magic Truffles. Trufflemaic guarantees you high quality truffles that will give you an equal or even more visual experience than with magic mushrooms.
