How to prepare for a truffle experience


Embarking on a psilocybin journey can be a transformative and profound experience. To maximize the potential benefits and ensure a safe and positive trip, careful consideration into preparation is important. 

 By preparing you can enhance the therapeutic potential of psilocybin and pave the way for a meaningful and introspective journey. In this guide, we will explore the key elements to think about when preparing. 


Establishing the why: intentions 


Take some time into having a clear idea about why you want this experience, it can be helpful to write these down to refer back to later, and to discuss it with others. See the end of this article for our guide of preparation prompts.

One of the fundamental aspects of a successful psilocybin journey is the mindset you bring into the experience. Approaching the trip with a positive and open mindset can significantly influence the outcome. Before embarking on your journey, take some time to reflect and set clear intentions for the experience. Consider what you hope to gain or explore during the trip. Whether it's personal growth, self-exploration, or addressing specific issues in your life, having a focused intention can provide a guiding framework for the journey.




 Allocate sufficient time for your psilocybin journey, including the onset, peak effects, and gradual return to baseline. On average it takes 1 hour after consumption to start feeling effects and from there the effects last around 4 hours.

Set aside a dedicated block of uninterrupted time to fully engage with the experience and avoid external distractions. Inform those around you of your plans and request privacy during the trip. Afterward, allow yourself ample time for integration and reflection, engaging in activities like journaling or meditation. Creating the right time frame ensures a meaningful and transformative psilocybin journey.


Have realistic expectations 

While sclerotia journeys can provide insight and promote growth, it is important to understand that they are most effective when integrated into a holistic life style. This means ensuring you are working on all the pillars of wellness such as sleep hygiene, balanced diet and regular socialisation. It is unrealistic to rely on a truffle experience to completely change your life.
