Pandora's box FAQ
Magic truffles are a natural psychedelic. They are ‘sclerotia’, which are the underground food reserves of a mushroom, for when nutrients are scarce. Luckily for us, when they are the food reserves of magic mushrooms, they have all the same trippy qualities as the psychedelic favourite. Also going by ‘psilocybin truffles’ or even ‘Philosopher’s Stones’, they contain the psychedelic alkaloids psilocybin, baeocystin and psilocin which combine to create hallucinogenic and spiritual journeys. Studies have shown psilocybin to be the safest recreational drug, and they are totally non-addictive. Recently, magic truffles have been having a full renaissance for their astounding ability to treat mental health conditions, such as depression.
At Wholecelium we supply the very best indoor magic truffle growing kits. Delivered straight to your door, they can yield between an amazing 30-60g of the freshest magic truffles. As well as being super easy to use, with our Pandora’s Box kit you can pick exactly which magic truffle strain you want it stocked with, or even ask for a mixture! Whichever you choose however, whether it’s a softer dose of Mexicana or our super strong Maakali you can be sure that they will be at their freshest and most magic.
Another unique thing about a Pandora’s Box Grow Kit is that you cannot be sure until opening how much you will yield. If you get 30g it’s still great value for money — if you get 60g, well it’s your lucky day psychonaut! That’s the beauty of a Pandora’s Box Grow Kit, you never know exactly what you are going to get…
When our Pandora’s Box kit arrives on your doorstep it is ready to harvest immediately. There are just a few simple steps to follow. It’s easy!
Remove the lid from the plastic container and strain while rinsing under the tap. You will notice the grains of the substrate washing away, and find yourself left with a fresh batch of truffles! These are ready to consume immediately, or store them in the fridge at 3°C for +/- 3 weeks. Do note, the sooner you eat them the more potent they will be.
The effects of magic truffles are not a one-size-fits-all. They will of course vary based on your dosage and your chosen strain. However, there are effects that are basically universal for every tripper. Generally a psychedelic trip is an enjoyable or even life-changing experience. These are the common effects of a psilocybin trip:
- Feelings of connection with the self, the universe and nature
- Spiritual awakening and insight
- Quickly changing emotions/mood
- Detachment from reality, as if in a dream state
- Visual effects — alterations and distortions
- Unusual bodily sensations
- Extraordinary thoughts and thinking patterns
Due to these effects you will experience during a trip, it is our essential advice that you choose to do it in an appropriate and safe environment, especially if it is your first time.
Although it varies from strain to strain, as a rule the dosages for the different levels of magic truffle trip are:
Low dose: 5-10g
Medium dose: 10-15g
High dose: 15-20g
‘Heroic’ dose: 25g+ (only for real psychonauts)
If you have purchased a Pandora’s Box with a stronger strain of truffle such as Qubit or Maakali you should adapt your dosage size to reflect this — e.g reduce the dosage the more potent the truffle is. As you can see, our kits provide more than enough for a few doses.
For beginners, it is widely recommended to take about 5 grams of fresh magic truffles.
For regular dose, 10-15 grams is suitable.
For experienced users, 15-20 grams for a heavy trip.
For the real psychonauts, 35-45 grams as the highest level.
15 grams is the amount we provide for our ready to eat truffles. Some people have higher tolerances and need more.
Keep in mind, dosages also have to do with weight and body mass of each person as well as the strength of the species. With our stronger species like QUBIT or MAAKALI, you can split one portion of 15 grams with multiple people.
Magic truffles contain the psychedelic active compound, psilocybin. This affects everyone differently.
It is based on:
- individual experience
Dosage is an important part of your hallucinogenic experience. Make sure to inform yourselves of the magic truffles you have purchased and its strength.
If you’re still in doubt, you can contact our customer service. We’ll give you specific answers to your questions.
Side effects of magic truffles vary by user, dosage, environment, and fungi species.
The most common side effects create a trip and can include:
- Intense visual effects
- Deep psychological insight
- Positive feelings of wonder
- Warped perception of time and space
- Sharpened senses
- Feeling like you’re in a dream state
- Relaxed muscles
- Sensitive Stomach
- Large pupils
Keep in mind that your environment and state of mind will affect your trip. Sometimes a trip can become so intense, that you experience a heightened sense of anxiety and panic.
Just remember that your psychedelic experience is only temporary (for several hours).
On an empty stomach, chew the sclerotia very very well. That way, all the active substances are absorbed by your body.
A more effective method is diluting your magic truffles in a nice cup of tea.
You can also mix it in with water/beer/wine for 1 hour and then consume your drink. Let that be your only glass of alcohol! Drunk trippers do stupid things!
Over the years, there’ve been occasional incidents on the news about shrooms. Usually it was the result of consuming too much psilocybin with other drugs, like alcohol, MDMA, cocaine, etc. Never combine mind-altering substances together.
Just remember that it’s better if your trip was too mild than if it would be too strong! There is always a next time to try. On that note, safe and fun tripping!
As a rule, we do not recommend that you microdose every day. This could reduce the desired positive benefits. However, there are two methods that remain the most popular. These are:
Every 3 days. This consists of microdosing on the 1st day of your choice and then not microdosing again for the next two. So: Dose, rest, rest, dose, etc. On your rest days you are likely to feel the continued afterglow of your microdose. This is also known as the ‘Fadiman Method’ as it was perfected and popularised by psychedelic guru James Fadiman
Every other day. Microdose on your chosen day, rest the second. Then repeat. Easy!
There are many reported benefits of microdosing psilocybin. These are from both scientific research as well as reams of anecdotal accounts.
The benefits tend to be:
- Improved mental health (such as a reduction in anxiety and depression symptoms)
- Enhanced performance
- Improved and eased social interactions
- Improved creativity
- An increase in energy
- Higher focus
- Increased concentration
- Relief from physical symptoms (such as tension, head and muscle aches)
- Soothed menstrual cramps and mood.
Swallow your microdose (1g of magic truffles) with water on a full stomach. Repeat either every 3 days or every other day, depending on what suits you. You can also choose to microdose just when the symptoms of complaints such as cluster headaches or premenstrual tension arise.
We do not recommend microdosing every day. This is because with continuous use you can build up a tolerance to psilocybin, and hence would not reap the benefits of the microdose. Many people also recommend completing a microdose cycle of 3 to 6 weeks and then reviewing your experience. Journal how you felt each day and over time — were the effects too mild / too strong? This way you can discover what is the right routine for you.
Psilocybin microdosing has recently garnered some well deserved attention. In the 2010s it became a hit with Silicon Valley, a tool for optimising their already optimised brains. As interest grew, scientists were able to back it up through real research.Over the last 5 years, microdosing took huge steps to break into the mainstream consciousness as well as the medical arena.
The idea of taking a psychedelic substance to “not to trip” sounds a little strange to some. Is there any point? So, why would anyone microdose? Well, psilocybin microdosing (one of the main focuses of microdosing studies) has proved to have many benefits:
- An increase in creativity, alertness and focus
- More energy and enthusiasm
- A greater awareness and connection to one’s surroundings
- More open and appreciative to social settings and forming relationships
If these benefits sound too good to be true, there is a wealth of testimonial and growing clinical evidence to support these claims. It’s exciting!
This full history of microdosing is hard to be certain of, but the practice most likely dawned from the creation of LSD (way back in the 1930s). Although there is no ‘hard’ evidence, one can be sure that if there were mind-altering substances about, people were experimenting.
But, let’s jump forward to the year 2011, for this is when microdosing made its true debut on the world stage — ushered in by psychedelic pioneer: James Fadiman.
In 2011 Fadiman published The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide, (a great read for any psychonaut or science fan). It introduced the idea of microdosing to the mainstream and broadened the conversation on psychedelics in general.
In the book, Fadiman laid out a regulated and simple schedule of how a person should microdose. The standard routine he encouraged was a course of taking a morning microdose once every three days (see Option 1).
While the numerous trip reports stood as strong evidence for the case of microdosing, the fight for true experimentation for future use had to be taken up by larger, more in-depth studies with the ability to gain proper government clearance.
Small scale clinical studies and trials started to take place in both the US and across Europe around the 2010s. With the growing reputable data, microdosing as a practice was starting to build a case for itself.
Many more trials are taking place as we speak, and the 2020s stands to be a year of great advancement for psychedelic microdosing as a cutting edge medical practice.
Though the field of microdosing as a science is not much older than a teen, the evidence so far has been largely encouraging. There is no doubt it will become a regular practice over the coming decade. For many people it already is.
Due to hard working researchers and influencers carrying out both trials and awareness campaigns, the world of psychedelic microdosing grows every day. Its history and promising future increasingly cements it as a major development in the world of pharmaceuticals.
It is not recommended to microdose everyday. We recommend that you microdose our fresh magic truffle strips, one dose – every 3 days or every second day in order to guarantee the best results. This is to give your system the rest it needs.
Yes it can – small amounts of psilocybin will not produce “high” effects, but will have subtle effects, like alleviating mental barriers, like anxiety and depression.

Both microdosing on LSD and microdosing on psilocybin produce similar results – feelings of productivity, better headspace for introspection, and uplifting mood. The biggest difference is that psilocybin mushrooms are grown naturally, and LSD is a synthetic drug from a laboratory.
This comes down to preference – many prefer ingesting a more natural, “earthy,” experience; since LSD is a manmade drug, there is the conversation and concern of where it’s really coming from. Both do not have harmful bodily effects, but it’s always best to play it safe. Magic truffles may be preferred because it’s legal in The Netherlands, and web shops like Wholecelium can guarantee better success rates and stand by our product (because they’re natural).
