Psilohuasca or ayahuasca?
Psilohuasca is similar to ayahuasca and is receiving increasing attention. One reason for the attention may be that ayahuasca is illegal and that its illegality has recently been confirmed again by a ruling by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has ruled that the import and possession of Ayahuasca is illegal in the Netherlands. This statement was expected because of the negative news reports regarding a number of fatalities during or after an ayahuasca ceremony.

What is Psilohuasca?
Psilohuasca is similar to ayahuasca because it is a mix of a psychedelic substance and an MAO inhibitor. In the case of Ayahuasca the psychedelic is DMT and in the case of psilohuasca the psychedelic is psilocybin/psilocin. The differences in the effects of DMT and psilocin are small as they stimulate receptors to approximately the same extent. There is a small difference in receptor profile that explains the differences.
Why the MAO inhibitors?
It is logical that MAO inhibitors are used with Ayahuasca. The enzyme MAO breaks down the active substance DMT immediately after ingestion. An MAO inhibitor or MAOi prevents MAO from breaking down DMT. The MAO inhibitor also ensures that other Monoamines are not broken down, such as dopamine and tyramine. In many cases, building up dopamine is not desirable for therapy, but it is also not a major problem. However, building up tyramine is a problem. Tyramine can cause high blood pressure, brain hemorrhages and even death. To prevent problems with tyramine, an adjusted diet must be followed.

Dangerous combinations with MAO inhibitors
To once again indicate that MAO inhibitors can pose dangers, we hereby provide a list of substances that are very dangerous in combination with MAO inhibitors. You should not use the following substances 24 hours before and 24 hours after the trip.
- sleeping pills
- migraine medications
- allergy medications
- cold remedies
- amphetamine (speed)
- MDMA (Ecstasy)
- mescaline cacti (peyote and san pedro)
Can it be done without MAO inhibitors?
The MAO inhibitors cause an increased risk of health complaints. The build-up of dopamine also often results in a less good effect of psychedelics (in our experience). Ayahuasca cannot do without MAO inhibitors because otherwise DMT will not work orally. But Psilohuasca can be done without MAO inhibitors. Psilocybin and psilocin can be absorbed without difficulty and remain active for 4-6 hours. If you add MAO inhibitors, you can save on the amount of psilocybin-containing mushrooms or truffles. When adding many MAO inhibitors, the trip also lasts a few hours longer.
Why would you want to run an extra risk of complications?
We believe that the benefits of MAOIs do not outweigh the disadvantages. Saving on costs should not be the reason. Extending the duration of the trip can be an advantage or a disadvantage. A good intense trip doesn't have to last very long. We prefer to choose a high dose and experience a good trip rather than a long mild trip.
Our recipe for a psilocybin tea
So we do not use MAO inhibitors. If you want to have a partial effect so that MAO is mildly inhibited, there are milder MAO inhibitors that we can use in consultation. Let's say that health and safety are the most important thing and that we do not skimp on costs. Our truffle tea has been adapted with extras such as vitamins, minerals and some other activating substances that support the brain.

Psilocybin ceremony through us
Contrary to what many expect, we do more than guide people during a psychedelic ceremony. We believe that a healthy body provides a healthy basis for being psychologically healthy. We do everything we can to address all facets of life and that is why we also advise our customers on nutrition, exercise and supplements. The complete approach for body and mind ensures the best results in the short and long term. Typically, we use a schedule that looks like this for most customers:
- Report, neurotransmitter test and intake
- Advice about nutrition, exercise and supplements based on point 1
- View progress from point 2 for a period of 1-3 weeks
- An individual psychedelic ceremony (unless a group has additional use or preference)
- Discussion of the truffle ceremony on the same day
- In the following days we will keep in touch for any integration of insights
Extras during ceremony
Our psychedelic therapy through a truffle ceremony includes the following extras to make the experience even better:
- Individual guidance truffle ceremony
- Aromatherapy (during trip)
- Color therapy (during trip)
- Musical support
Possibilities of a truffle ceremony
The biggest advantage of a trip therapy session is that through introspection (looking within yourself) we can guide you to change your self-image. Many addictions, fears, stress, depression and other personal problems arise from a (negative) incorrect self-image, from non-real thoughts or from subconscious stress, which arise from fears in the subconscious. If you give yourself the best based on nutrition, thought and exercise, this will have a positive effect during and after the trip because these lifestyle changes are considered logical during the trip. Be good to your body and mind and they will be good to you. You are worthy of being the best version of yourself.
