    • Are your products legal in my country?

      Legal status

      In the Netherlands, Smartshops are 100% legal companies and in the Netherlands, all products we sell that are intended for consumption are controlled under the Commodities Act and the supervision of The Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA). 

      The Coordination Point Assessment and Monitoring of new drugs (CAM is part of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM)) has carried out a risk assessment for sclerotia a.k.a. hallucinogenic / magic truffles. The CAM concluded that the number of health incidents related to the use of sclerotia is very low. Based on the CAM report, the Netherlands decided not to prohibit sclerotia.

      From a letter dated 13 September 2001 from Herbert Schaepe, secretary of the UN International Narcotics Control Commission, to the Dutch Ministry of Health: 

      "Under international law there are currently no plants (natural material) containing psilocin and psilocybin under the control of the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances". 

      In most UN member states plants (natural material) containing psilocin and psilocybin are apparently legal. Within the E.U. there is the right to free movement of goods. However, countries with restrictive drug policies have changed their laws. We do not have the resources to check whether sclerotia and magic mushroom grow kits are legal or not in every EU Member State. We strongly advise you to first investigate and determine whether sclerotia or magic mushroom grow kits are legal in the country where you live and where you want to take or have the sclerotia or magic mushroom grow kits sent to. If you buy sclerotia or magic mushroom grow kits in our stores in the Netherlands and take them with you across the border, or buy sclerotia or magic mushroom grow kits online from us and have them sent to an E.U. country outside the Netherlands, you do this entirely at your own risk and you automatically safeguard Microdose NL from any form of legal liability.

      European Law

      EU trade law says that if a product is legal in 1 EU country it is therefor in effect legal in ALL EU countries. So in case our types of products are not allowed by your government: the ban in your country is illegal, not our products. This logic follows from the jurisprudence which relegalized absinthe in the EU. 

      Our products are 100% legal in Holland. There is no priority for custom control in EU countries to look for shroom products. Health risks for shrooms are very low, when compared with other drugs such as alcohol or cocaine.

    • From what amount do you ship for free?

      Within the Netherlands we offer free shipping above  €40,-

      Within the EU we offer free shipping above  €150,-

    • Is my order packed discreetly?

      Yes, we pack all our products in brown normal boxes, with only a shipping label.

    • Forgot to pick up the order at the local Postal pickup point?

      When you forgot pick up the order at the Post.nl collection point and the order is returned to Microdose.nl the responsibility lies with the customer.

      After payment of new shipping costs, we will resend the order with the exception of Fresh Magic Truffles. These fresh products are unfortunately no longer usable and we have to destroy them. The customer will have to order and pay for them again.

    • Why don't you ship the truffles with letterpost?

      It does indeed save money if we were to do this, however, we have experienced many problems with the on-time delivery of letterbox packages. Often enormously delayed, or lost because it goes with the postman. Often, the postman does not have a scanning device, which means that people do not get scans of their shipments, or they get them early. We want our fresh truffles to reach our customers in the refrigerator as quickly as possible, which is why we have chosen to charge €1.90 more for delivery on the next working day. 

      Thank you for your understanding.

    • What Shipping company do you use?

      Normally we use POST.nl, DHL and UPS. It depends on the country which we choose. 

      If you have preference, please add this in the comment when you order.

       

    • Can I return my order if I decide not to keep it?

      If products arrive damaged or the product does not meet your expectations, you can return them within 14 days. Shipping costs are to be borne by the customer.

      You can also return most products unopened without giving a reason. 

      Fresh products such as our grow kits, Microdosing XP truffles and Magic Truffles can 'not' be returned due to limited shelf life and shipment outside the refrigerator, as we can no longer sell them and must destroy them.

      Microdose.nl invokes a legal exception to the right of withdrawal for perishable goods. The law speaks of products that can spoil within a certain period.

      Quote: Right of withdrawal

      "Exemptions apply for rapidly perishable goods, sealed goods or opened by the consumer which cannot be returned for health or hygiene reasons, which are tied to specific dates."

    Product tips and questions

    • I get a Flush from Niacin. Is this harmfull?

      You have experienced the Flushing effect caused by Niacin. Vit. B3. This is mentioned in the guidelines. This has nothing to do with an allergic reaction. https://microdosinginstitute.com/lions-mane-stacking/

      Please take half a pill next time. If the flushing is still unpleasant, take a quarter of stop taking the Niacin.

      This Flushing is normal and can do no harm and according to Paul Stamets this flush is the reason why psilocybin and Lion's mane pass through the blood/brain barrier, to the tips of the neurons, where neuroplasticity takes place. Nice story of course, but if you find it an unpleasant feeling, you can halve your intake of niacin. If you don't like it at all, you can also continue without the niacin.

       

       

    • How do I take the Mushrooms extracts from Foodsporen.?

      You take the drops under your tongue and keep them in your mouth for a minute before you swallow. So that the glands under your tongue can absorb it immediately. You can then drink a glass of water afterwards. The mention of carbonated drinks is a formality, because it can very rarely happen that people suffer from nausea, so it has to be mentioned.

    • Is the 1cP-LSD equally on the Microdosing blotters?

      Due to the procedure of making the blotters, there is no more than 2% difference in the blotters. The procedure is as follows:

      • Container with liquid,
      • Sheet blotter paper, soak it in,
      • Press the liquid out, loosen and 'shake' the stack, then put it back in,
      • Repeat until there is no more liquid
      • Each blotter is soaked in liquid in which the 1cP-LSD is uniformly distributed.
      • The paper is then saturated until nothing more can be added.
      • Then the blotter paper sheets are separated.
      • The blotter paper sheets are laid flat to dry. 
      • After drying they are ready to be sold.
    • What is the difference between the Atlantis and Hollandia Truffles?

      In itself, the Hollandia is the strongest kind, only because it has to be cut, because it is so large, it loses a bit of its strength and is almost as strong as the Atlantis. For microdosing it does not matter and you will not notice much difference. The difference will be more noticeable when you take a higher dose. 

    • What is the difference between Foodsporen Capsules and extract drops?

      There is only a difference in how you take it. The drops are taken under the tongue so that it is absorbed directly by the glands and no substances are lost if you keep it under the tongue for a minute or two. The capsules are slightly more expensive because they are stronger. This is to compensate for the loss when taking the extract powder in the capsules through the stomach. 

      The extracts do contain alcohol and the capsules do not.

    • Do I need to follow a certain diet when I microdose with Caapi Vine?

      These dietary guidelines are based on high doses of ayahuasca. Microdosing does not require a specific diet. 

      However, keep an eye on it. If you experience headaches after consuming certain foods during microdosing, try to avoid them,

    Questions about microdosing

    • What does 'Not for human consumption' mean what is mentioned for Research Chemical products?

      Because 1cP-lsd is a Research Chemical and is not approved by the Food Law as food, we are obliged to mention that 1cP is only meant for research purposes and not for human consumption. 

      See it a bit like LSD, or cocaine which is not legal, also not approved. Only a dealer will not mention that it is not approved by the Commodities Act.

    • Can Microdosing heal my depression or burn-out?

      Microdosing does not usually cure depression/ burn-outs. It is a tool or support to help you heal your own depression. You are the main actor in this process, not the microdosing. It points to what you need to work on. When you realise this, (as with all therapies and methods) then you can certainly alleviate depression, but it is not a quick fix for all problems.

      With a realistic view on microdosing you can often get the most out of yourself, which can certainly contribute to your healing process.

       

       

    • Why can I only microdose for 1 to 2 months?

      Microdosing is above all less is more. It is about gaining insights during your microdosing course and integrating those insights into your life. A successful microdosing course is when you no longer need it as support. You are the main character in this story, the substance you use is the means and support.

      After a month of microdosing, you should actively look back at what you have experienced, learned and what you still have to learn. After 2 to 4 weeks your receptors will be reset and you can start again. Psychedelics build up a tolerance very quickly. So when you use it too long, it loses its power. 

      All psychedelics have 'Cross Tolerance'. So it goes for every psychedelic substance. That means they have an affinity to the same 5HT2a receptors, so once you overload these receptors you will not notice any effect anymore. 

      Also important to look back on your microdosing journey and reflect on what you have learned, what insights did you integrate already and what do you still need to work on. 

    • Can I combine my medication with Microdosing?

      Microdosing can in principle be combined with microdosing psychedelics without too much trouble. For more information, take a look at this page of our partners Microdosing Institute

      https://microdosinginstitute.com/microdosing-101/faq/microdosing-combining-medication-supplements/

      Furthermore, a study was recently published by MindMed that claims SSRIs, antidepressants do not need to be stopped for psilocybin treatment.

      https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/mindmed-and-liechti-lab-publish-first-human-data-on-the-interacting-effects-of-an-ssri-and-psilocybin-301433726.html

    • I don't feel anything from the Microdosing Truffles? How do I find my Sweet Spot?

      A micro-dose of Truffles is between 0,5 and 3 grams. Increase the dose until you feel you have reached a pleasant state where you can function normally during your daily routine.  About finding your ideal dose and other tips about microdosing, check out these pages

      https://microdosinginstitute.com/how-to/how-to-microdose/

       

       

    • Am I allowed to drink alcohol during my microdosing journey?

      It is possible, but if you want to fully experience the subtle effects of microdosing, it is advisable not to drink too much alcohol the evening before your microdose. Everything affects the microdose experience, including alcohol. The effect will not be fully noticeable.

    • How do I find my ideal dose? My Sweet spot?

      You have to be able to do all the things you normally do during the day, but have to feel an increase in social interactions, be more connected to yourself, enviroment, and nature and feel more in the present moment. Please check this page to learn more about Sweet spot.

      https://microdosinginstitute.com/how-to/how-to-microdose/

    • I get nausia when I take the Truffles, what can I do to avoid it?

      Nausea sometimes occurs when people eat truffles. Unfortunately, some people have this reaction because there are also 5ht2a receptors in your intestines (and in the brain) where the psilocybin attaches itself to. 

      To prevent nausea from the truffles, it helps to take fresh ginger tea with them. Also swallowing them directly helps for some.

      You could also try another substance. For instance 1cP-LSD.

       

      Info: Microdosing with 1cP-LSD

       

      Product: 1cP-Microdose  

    • What is the difference between Magic Truffles and 1cP-LSD? (1P, 1V-LSD)

      Check for more information on the page of our partners Microdosing Institute.

      Differences Magic Truffles v.s. LSD

    • I am using the Stack Lion's Mane+Niacin+truffles. I get red skin and itchy skin. What is going on?

      As mentioned on the product page and in the description provided (just read it ), the Niacin can cause a 'flush'. This is totally harmless and lasts for about an hour, but that effect is what the theory is built on, that that flush causes the psilocybin and lion's mane to be transported through the blood brain barrier to the tip of your neurons, promoting neuroplasticity. 

      If you find it unpleasant, take half, or else a little less. No worries.

    • Can I combine the different substances for microdosing?

      All psychedelics are family and have cross-tolerance. It is best to first get to know all substances separately before you start combining. But it is possible. If you decide to more substances in one microdosing journey, best to use one a few times and then the other a few times, instead of taking them together at one time.

    • How long after a High dose journey can I start microdosing?

      After a high dose journey, it is recommended to take a break from microdosing, until the 'afterglow'  of the High dose has faded. Most people experience a feeling of reset, being reborn after a session. This can last 2 to 4 weeks. So after 2 weeks or if you don't experience this feeling of being at ease, you can start microdosing.

      Fresh products such as our grow kits, Microdosing XP truffles and Magic Truffles can 'not' be returned due to limited shelf life.

      Fresh products such as our grow kits, Microdosing XP truffles and Magic Truffles can 'not' be returned due to limited shelf life and shipping outside the fridge, as we will not be able to sell them anymore and have to destroy them.

    Questions Truffles and Microdosing XP truffles

    • How do I take in the Microdosing XP truffles

      If the immediate effect is too strong in the first hour, or if you find the truffles taste disgusting, you can also swallow the fresh truffles in 1x, as mentioned on the XP flyer. The active substance is released more slowly, which gives a more time-release effect.

      It is also fine to chew the Microdosing XP truffles well and or cut them into little pieces to make tea from them. 

    • Can I store the Truffles after the expire date?

      If you want to keep the truffles longer, it is best to take them out of the package, slice them finely, lay them on a tea towel to dry and then grind them and keep them dark and dry for longer storage.

    • Are the XP truffles cultivated on Glutenfree substrate?

      Yes, our XP truffles and Magic truffles are cultivated on rice, not on grain, so 100% gluten-free.

       

    • How much XP truffles do I need to take for the first time?

      In the manual that comes with the product, it says that you should start with half a portion (gram) to get familiar with the substance and then slowly increase by half a gram or quarter of a gram, until you have found your ideal dose. This also means it can happen that you take just a bit too much for your daily activities, hence if you increase, do it on a day off. 

      For more info visit https://microdosinginstitute.com/how-to/

    • My truffles turn blue after drying. is that normal?

      The bluish colour after drying is the psilocybin in the truffles. That is the active psychoactive substance that becomes visible through oxidation. No problem and perfectly normal. You can safely take the truffles.

    • If I make tea of the truffles, will the strength decrease?

      The strength will be slightly decreased. You could also swallow the XP truffles whole to avoid the taste. That will give a more time-release effect and less strong on set.

       

    • My XP truffles have a strange colour in on of the portions. Is it ok to use?

      This discolouration can do absolutely no harm. It is a natural product with different colours. If washing the truffles removes the brown protective layer a bit, you will see a different colour. The green-blue is the psilocybin, i.e. the active substance. In contact with oxygen, the truffles oxidise a little.

       

    • How much psilocybin does 1 gram of XP truffles contain?

      1 gram of fresh XP truffles contains between 1 to 2mg of psilocybin. 

      https://www.microdose.nl/en/blog/research-truffles-or-magic-mushrooms-for-microdosing-what-s-the-difference

    • What are the silver peaces on my Truffles?

      These are remnants of the substrate in which the truffles grow. The truffles are washed after harvesting, but some of the substrate can always remain. This is absolutely not harmful to health.

    Legality

    • Are your microdosing products legal in my country?

      It is not possible for us to always be fully informed of the (changing) rules regarding our products abroad. Full responsibility for the purchase of these products, therefore, lies with the customer. Before ordering our products from abroad, the customer must ensure that the goods can be legally imported into the country to which the order must be sent.

      The hallucinogenic substances that give magic truffles their magical effect are listed in the Psychotropic Substances Convention (PDF), which means that possession of pure psilocybin is not allowed. Because these substances occur in many fungi, the United Nations has decided to make an exception for these natural products. See below a part of the Commentary on the Convention on Psychotropic Substances (article 32, point 12), in which it is explicitly stated that, among others, Peyote cacti, psilocybe mushrooms, etc. are excluded from the convention, and therefore have legal status.

      Truffles are legal in the Netherlands and can therefore be sent to all EU countries under the Mutual Recognition of Goods Principle of the European Commission. This EU treaty says that if a product is legal in one EU country, it is also legal to sell and ship to all other EU countries. However, it is technically still possible for individual EU countries, states, and local jurisdictions to ban all kinds of products. Therefore, checking the current legal status of our product in your jurisdiction is your own responsibility. Microdose Pro is legally allowed to ship this product to any citizen residing in the EU. By purchasing goods on this website, you accept the responsibility of complying with local laws and customs regulations. You ensure that the ordered product is legal in the country of import. Microdose.nl is not responsible for goods that are stored or seized by third parties, such as customs or law enforcement authorities in the country where you order from.
