The Microdosing XP truffles that we offer, also called ‘philosophers’ stones’, are actually not magical truffles but sclerotia from Psilocybe mushrooms. Sclerotia are mycelial thickenings 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, religious and medicinal purposes. Our microdosing truffles are specially grown for us by the best and most experienced truffle grower in the Netherlands. These ‘philosopher’s stones’ contain the psychoactive molecules psilocybin, psilocin, baeocystin/norbaeocystin, norpsilocyne and aeruginascin.
What is microdosing with truffles?
What is microdosing? Microdosing means taking a minimal dose (called a ‘microdosing’) of magic truffles, about 1/10 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 and evaluate whether it benefits you or not. You won’t trip from a microdose, not even a little bit. People who microdose do notice subtle effects. It works on a sub-perceptual level. This means that a microdose should not cause any classic psychedelic effects, no visual disturbances and that you should be able to function normally during your daily activities and interactions.
The subtle effects often observed:
- More energy
- Clearer thinking, increased problem-solving ability
- More creativity
- Better concentration ability
- positive mood
- Emotional connection with the people around you
- Be aware of yourself and your environment
- Being more in the ‘Now’, in the present moment

It is good to pause here for a moment. What is your reason for working with these powerful truffles? For what purpose do you want to microdose? Microdosing is done for many different reasons. Varying from more creativity to a decrease in certain medical complaints.
Combine with medicines?
James Fadiman P.h.D. has drawn up a list of medicines that, according to people who participated in his research, can be easily combined with microdosing. Click here to view the list of medicines.
