Truffles are very easy to consume and can simply be eaten in their raw form. It is advisable to chew them thoroughly in order to avoid any feeling of nausea and to increase the absorption of psilocybin. Truffles can also be consumed as a tea. Simply leave them in hot water for a period of 20 minutes, strain and drink. Do not put them in boiling water as this may damage the psilocybin content.
