Various types of psychedelics

A lot of people who have undergone psychedelic therapy or attended ceremonies are often familiar with the terms MDMA, LSD, ketamine, psilocybin, psilohuasca and ayahuasca. These are all psychedelics. One psychedelic is not the other and the effects differ. Yet, there are also very similarities among these psychedelics and that is because they almost all mimic the effect of the tryptamines serotonin and DMT. All of these psychedelics owe their hallucinogenic effects to stimulating the 5HT-2a receptors in the brain. Looking for the highest stimulation with the least risk of complications, we end up with psilocybin (truffles/mushrooms).

Psiloflora explained

Psiloflora is a mix of psilocybin containing mushrooms or truffles combined with the Passiflora incarnata, a mild MAO inhibitor. The reason we add the passionflower to the truffles is that this mix adds some nice properties to the psychedelic truffles without increasing too much the risks of complications as with strong MAO inhibitors (ayahuasca, psilohuasca etc.).


The combination of the psilocybin and Passiflora incarnata gives the following benefits:

  • Calming effect
  • Deeper trip (triple sheet 5)
  • Longer trip (up to 8 hours)
  • Bright trip
  • More visual trip

Aside from its ameliorating effects of a psychedelic trip, Passiflora incarnata is also sometimes used without psychedelics against ADHD, nervousness, nervous heart disease, Parkinson's disease, seizures, muscle spasms, hysteria, hypertension, PMS, epilepsy, skin conditions, hemorrhoids, burns, asthma, whooping cough, bronchitis, infections and as a painkiller for many ailments. Also in problems associated with menopause. Also, it is used as a remedy to reduce the effects of alcoholism, facilitate the cessation of drinking and is also used for delirium tremens.

Who is it suitable for?

Because of the prolonged duration of the psychedelic effects, it is advisable to already have some experience with psychedelics. If you have no experience with psychedelics you can still participate but then it is advice is to take less of the psilocybin tea and if you wish one hour after taking it, you can take a second psilocybin tea. If fear plays a major role then it is advisable to start with a low dose or medium dose truffle ceremony.

Please see below our advice for suitability to participate in truffle and/or psiloflora ceremonies.
