The effects of Magic Mushrooms and Truffles are very similar. The psilocine and psilocybine are causing the radical change of perception of reality. Once ingested, the first effects appear after 15 to 45 minutes and the trip takes approximately 4 to 7 hours. Within the first two hours the effect tend to be the most intense. Some people experience the effects to come in waves, which last 30 minutes and than disappears to stabilize the effects.
A trip is a very personal experience, therefore the final effects may vary from person to person. In addition to the species, the dosage, and setting will have influence on the final effect.
Experience with shrooms or truffles is a fantastic and miraculous experience for most people. Unfortunately this is not a case with everyone. Some people will find that the drastic change of reality is a difficult and intense experience and can cause fear and panic attacks. This is called a “Bad Trip”. A bad trip is very annoying, but nothing to worry about. The effects are only temporarily and will disappear after several hours. In this situation it is helpful to have a sober person (the “sitter”) around to keep that person calm.
