How to Consume Truffles

In this guide, we'll explore three popular and effective techniques for consuming truffles: chewing with dark chocolate, lemon tekking, and making a beverage. 

 Before consuming truffles in any manner it is important to have an empty stomach, this means at least 3 hours after your last meal. This ensures you will feel effects and have the least gastrointestinal upset as possible.


Dosage Guide

Microdose, 0.5- 3.5 grams: improved mood, greater focus and flow, creative ideas

Festival dose 3.5-5 grams: light euphoria, heightened emotions, light visual distortions Standard dose 7-10 grams: introspection, creative flow state, mild euphoria 

Moderate dose 12.5-25 grams: amplified emotions, altered visuals, new sense of meaning and  connection 

Megadose 30-50 grams: intense euphoria, mystical experiences, profoundly deep introspection

Heroic dose 50+ grams: extreme somatic awareness, ego dissolution, over powering visuals 


Keep in mind that after consuming truffles it generally takes 45 minutes to an hour to feel the effects (with the exception of lemon tekking which takes around 15 to 30 minutes). From there the effects last about 4 hours. 


Chewing psilocybin truffles with dark chocolate is not only a delicious way to consume them but also may enhance the overall experience. Dark chocolate contains compounds that synergize with psilocybin, potentially complementing its effects. To enjoy this method, follow these steps:

  1. Have not eaten for three hours. Start with the desired dose of truffles.
  2. Take a small piece of dark chocolate and place it in your mouth.
  3. Chew the truffles and chocolate together, allowing their flavors to mingle.
  4. Be sure to chew very well, as the act of chewing initiates the release of psilocybin compounds.
  5. Swallow the mixture and wait around 1 hour for the effects to begin.

Not a fan of dark chocolate? it is also possible to chew the truffles with a small amount of greek style yogurt (no sugar is important), a few spoon fulls helps disguise the flavour of the truffles. 



For those seeking a quicker onset, a potentially intensified experience, and reduce nausea, lemon tekking is a popular solution. By combining psilocybin truffles with lemon juice, the acidic environment breaks down the truffles, making the psilocybin more readily available for absorption. Here's how you can try the lemon tek method:

1. Have not eaten for three hours. To create your own Lemon Tekking blend, grind your truffles into a fine paste / powder using a grinder or blender. Place the powder in a shot glass and ensure it's evenly spread out.

2. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the mixture, making sure to coat all the solids completely. You may need a second lemon to ensure full coverage. Fresh lemon juice is recommended for best results.

3. Allow the mixture to sit for at least 15 minutes, stirring occasionally for even “cooking”. You can also use a shaker to let the citric acid do its job.

4. For those extra prone to nausea, use a coffee filter or cheesecloth to remove truffle pieces from the fluid. Collect all the juice in a glass and discard the remaining material in a safe location.

5. Your Lemon Tek blend is ready to consume, whether with or without the truffle paste / powder. Treat it like a shot and drink it all at once.



This is a great option if you prefer a gentler and more soothing approach. This method allows for easier digestion and provides a calming experience. To brew your own psilocybin tea, follow these steps:

  1. Have not eaten for three hours. Begin by finely chopping your psilocybin truffles
  2. Boil water and allow it to cool for a few minutes- aim for 80º celsius
  3. Add some herbal tea, or lemon for flavor, be sure to avoid adding any sugar (want some tea inspo? check out our range here)
  4. Add the chopped truffles to the water and let it steep for about 6-8 minutes.
  5. Optional; strain the mixture to remove any truffle pieces.
  6. Sip the psilocybin tea slowly, consume within 20 minutes

Not your cup of tea? it is is also possible to replace the tea with coffee or another sugar free alternative. 



Remember, when consuming psilocybin truffles or any psychedelic substance, always approach them with respect, mindfulness, and proper research. Start with a low dose and create a safe and supportive set and setting for your journey.

By understanding and experimenting with these different methods, you can tailor your psilocybin experience to your preferences.
