Are you thinking of visiting the Netherlands anytime soon or maybe another part of Europe? You might be interested in going on an inner trip when you arrive but not sure how to do it. I’ll show you how to buy magic truffles in Amsterdam’s smart shops in this guide, so continue reading. 

Although magic mushrooms are not legal under Dutch law, smart shops in Amsterdam still stock hallucinogenic substances. Among these are magic truffles containing compounds like biocytin, psilocin, and psilocybin. The truffles are from magic mushrooms, and they also have similar effects.

Understanding Psilocybin Mushrooms

Many people call them shrooms or magic mushrooms, which are common in the US, Mexico, and South America. The use of shrooms for different purposes dates back over a thousand years. They have also been extensively studied for their psychedelic properties over the past 50 years.

There are different strains of magic mushrooms today, and their effects a similar to potent hallucinogens like LSD. Magic mushrooms can have different effects on the brain. It may include a feeling of nausea, paranoia, and relaxation. In large doses, it may cause negative effects like significant mood alteration.

Magic mushrooms cause stronger trips that can last for more than six hours. Truffles, on the other hand, only offer lesser trips. The differences between their activity levels are due to the significant difference in their psilocybin concentration. There is a higher tendency for magic mushrooms to cause a bad trip because of their high psilocybin concentration.

Magic Mushrooms vs. Magic Truffles

Magic mushroom is the term that people use to describe hallucinogenic fungi, and they are different from magic truffles. They both contain similar active ingredients, which are psilocybin, psilocin, and biocytin. However, the concentration levels for these compounds are different in both cases.

The compounds are consumed similarly, but they differ in their legality. The main difference between them is also their growing methods. Magic mushrooms are poisonous or non-psychoactive mushrooms, while the truffles grow underground.

Why The Netherlands?

Psilocybin is only legal in two countries today: the Netherlands and Jamaica. Magic mushrooms are readily available in Jamaica, but only a few quality vendors exist. On the other hand, magic truffles are legal in the Netherlands, and their production is commercial.

There are different stores in the Netherlands, and you can walk into any of them. The truffles are refrigerated and packed carefully. These stores are mostly called smart shops and are abundant in Amsterdam, a major European city.

Before you buy magic truffles, it’s advisable to get advice from the shop. They can easily answer your questions by telling them about your psychedelic experience and the type of experience you want.

One thing to note is that most of these shops sell fresh truffles. Therefore, if you buy it fresh, it dries out, and the weight may reduce.

Here’s a rough guide to help you understand how the truffles are sold:

  • 5 to 10 g: This is a low dose, and you may not feel anything at 5g if your tolerance is high
  • 10 to 20 g: A medium dose which is generally stronger for first-timer
  • 20 to 30 g: High dose
  • More than 30g: At this level, you’ll get the peak experience of the substance. Do not take this dose alone, especially if you’re a first-timer. 


Here are four options for you to try:

  1. Eat them plainly: You can eat them directly from the packet after purchase. However, this may not be as appetizing as you would expect. Remember that truffles don’t taste great, but eating them plain does the job.
  2. Truffle tea: This is a special way to consume magic truffles. You only need to crush the truffles and place them in hot water (not boiling water). Stir the mix for 10 minutes so it can infuse properly. You can then add honey or any other sweetener before you drink it. 
  3. Truffle smoothie: Also a simple way to mask the unpleasant taste of your truffles. You only need to place them in a blender with juice or fruits and enjoy the product. To reduce nausea, you can also add ginger to the blend. 
  4. Lemon Tek: This method will let you get a harder and faster trip. The lemon flavor will also mask the unpleasant taste of the truffles.
