What are Magic Truffles?
The Microdosing XP truffles we offer, also called ‘philosophers’ stones’, are actually not magic truffles but sclerotia of Psilocybe Mexicana. Sclerotia are mycelium thickeners that grow underground and are part of the fungus, just like the fruiting bodies (mushrooms) that appear above the ground.
These truffles are native to the subtropical regions of Mexico and Guatemala and have been used for thousands of years by indigenous peoples for spiritual and religious purposes and as medicine. Our microdosing truffles have been cultivated especially for us by the best and most experienced truffle grower in the Netherlands. These ‘Stones of the Wise’ contain the psycho-active molecules psilocybin, psilocin, baeocystin/norbaeocystin, norpsilocyne and aeruginascin.
What is microdosing with truffles?
Microdosing means taking a minimal dose (a so-called ‘microdosing’) of magic truffles, about 1/10 part of a dose of which you would experience a psychedelic experience. According to a certain protocol, you take these truffles for about a month to 2 months, then take a break from 2 weeks to a month to evaluate whether or not it is beneficial for you. You won’t trip off a microdose, not even a little bit. People who take microdoses do perceive subtle effects. It works on a sub-perceptual level. This means that a microdose should not cause classic psychedelic effects, no visual disturbances and that you should be able to function normally during your daily activities and interactions.
The subtle effects one often observes:
- More energy
- Clear thinking
- Increased problem-solving ability
- More creativity
- Better concentration
- Positive mood
- Emotional connection with the people around you
- Conscious of yourself and your surroundings
- More in the ‘Now’, being in the present moment

It’s good to think about this for a moment. What’s your reason for working with these powerful truffles? For what purpose do you want to microdose? One microdose for many different reasons. Ranging from more creativity to the reduction of certain medical complaints.
Combine with medication?
James Fadiman P.h.D. has drawn up a list of medicines that, according to people who participated in his research, can be combined with microdoses without any problems. Click here to view the list of Drugs and Supplements.
Like with everything you take in, there are always risks.
Few studies have investigated the effects of microdosing directly. Furthermore, experts know little about the effects of long-term microdosing.
Another issue is that many studies to date have relied on self-reporting. This method often involves asking questions to people who have been microdosing or were already interested in it. As such, there may be a bit of bias in these studies, as the people may expect to have a good experience while microdosing.
There is not yet enough strong evidence, including comparative research using placebos, to make a case for microdosing.
However, users report a few different benefits, which generally relate to mental health and well-being. A study in Harm Reduction Journal categorized several possible benefits from reports by microdosers. These benefits include:
- improved focus, concentration, and mindfulness
- improved energy, wakefulness, and stimulation
- cognitive benefits, such as enhanced problem solving
- social benefits
- reduced anxiety
- reduced symptoms, such as stress
- improved mood, optimism, and life appreciation
- improved body functioning
- self-efficacy, including improved ambition, productivity, and motivation
People also reported other benefits and enjoyments of microdosing, such as the ability to control the dose and the general lack of side effects.
Improved mental health
Many of the reasons why people microdose involve some aspects of mental health, such as reducing stress and anxiety or alleviating symptoms of depression.
In a study in Psychopharmacology, researchers asked people their reasoning for microdosing.
21% of people responded that they primarily used microdosing as a therapy for depression, while 7% used microdosing for symptoms of anxiety. About 9% of people who responded used microdosing to help with other mental health disorders.
Overall, 44% of people who responded perceived that their mental health was much better as a consequence of microdosing.
Another study in Frontiers in Psychiatry used an online questionnaire to ask people who microdose to compare its effects with those of other treatments for symptoms such as depression and anxiety. The answers indicated that people found microdosing more effective than some other forms of treatment but less effective than higher doses of psychedelics.
In an animal study, researchers noted that microdose levels of DMT helped the subjects overcome fears and anxieties in a test that scientists commonly use to model issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and general anxiety.
More research in humans is necessary to support this early evidence.
Improved brain functioning
Anecdotal evidence shows that some people believe that microdosing helps improve their brain function by allowing their brain to operate at its fullest potential or making them more open to new ideas.
A study in PLOS ONETrusted Source found that microdosing makes people report better brain function on dosing days, but these effects do not carry over to other days when the person does not microdose.
Creativity is a harder concept to quantify and validate, but many people who microdose claim to do so for its ability to boost their creative faculties. However, a combination of other factors, such as stress reduction or increased focus, may lead to this benefit. Again, evidence for this is anecdotal, and scientific studies are yet to back these claims.
Microdosing may also help with temporary focus, allowing a person to work on a big project without their mind wandering. One studyTrusted Source suggests that microdosing led to lower levels of distractability.
