Magic Mushrooms

You want to experiment with psychoactive substances and one of the first things you can find is magic truffles and magic mushrooms. Aren’t magic truffles and mushrooms not just the same thing? They have both with psilocybin right? Many people have asked us to at Doctor Growkit what the difference is between the two. Now is the time that Doctor Growkit will tell what the difference is between the magic truffles and magic mushrooms!

Are magic mushrooms stronger than magic truffles?

This is a question that is asked many times. It makes sense to think that one of the two is stronger. However, it depends mostly on the type of magic mushroom or truffle. Both have the psychoactive substance psilocybin, however the intensity of the trip mostly on the amount of psilocybin in the in the truffle or mushroom. Some people feel like that magic truffles are less intense than magic mushrooms. This is mostly due to the fact that magic truffles are allowed to be sold. Truffles are carefully weighed to make sure that the right amount is sold, which means that the power of the magic truffle is more consistent. It is also the main reason why magic truffles are more consistent and feel like they give a less intense trip. The amount of psilocybin in magic mushrooms differs more and give therefore a more intense trip. The reason for it is because magic mushrooms differ a lot in size and have also quite a lot of water in them, which makes it harder to calculate the amount of psilocybin in the magic mushroom.

The availability of magic truffles

Magic truffles are relatively more easy to obtain than magic mushrooms. This is due to the fact that magic truffles are legal to be sold in The Netherlands. In the Netherlands is it forbidden to sell the magic Mushrooms. However, it is legal to sell the fungal threads and spores of the truffle. This is also why you can find ready-to-consume truffles but not ready-to-eat mushrooms.

The physical difference between magic truffles and mushrooms

The main difference that you can spot is also very easy to notice. This is mainly in the way that magic truffles and mushrooms grow. Magic mushrooms grow above the ground and magic truffles under the ground. The mushrooms makes it possible that the fungus can grow. The truffle is basically a way for the fungus to store nutrition. This means that truffles and magic mushrooms help each other to grow and to stay alive. Another fun fact about the magic truffle is that it is technically not a truffle but a sclerotia. Which is basically of compact knot of mycelium containing psilocybin.

In the anatomy of magic truffles you can notice that truffles have less water as they grow underground. This makes it easier to dry the magic truffles. You can also dry magic mushrooms and shrink quite a lot. The magic truffle stays more in its size after drying.
