As a person who enjoys the natural things in life, however weird they may be I’m always traversing the internet for something new to indulge in or simply learn about. I will always choose a smoke over a drink and a good psychedelic experience over a night out on the town! So, with this in mind, just over a week ago I began my usual trawl through the depths of the web, seeking new stories and ideas about entheogens.
I had used magic mushrooms and truffles in the past and the humble memory of my experiences led me to wanting a new one. I have used website’s selling such products before, but with little luck. Then I came across Avalon Magic Plants. Immediately the layout and look to the website was so much better than that of its counterparts. A very clean design along with a clear arrangement meant I was able to find exactly what I was looking for with such ease.
Not only had I found what I was looking for, but the price was incredible! ‘Super sale: 30 grams of Atlantis Magic Truffles’ it read. I was shocked as even in the smart shops in Amsterdam, the prices weren’t this low for truffles of such potency. Clearly I was a little suspicious to start with, so began to read reviews on the website and elsewhere on the web. Everything seemed legit and they even accepted Credit/Debit cards. My mind was made up so I decided to precede with the purchase of the Atlantis truffles. Filling in the info was quick, easy and within five minutes my order had gone through.
I ordered on Saturday afternoon, and since they do not ship on Saturdays or Sundays I knew a little wait would at least be reasonable. Monday came and the e-mail came through that they had been dispatched. I was excited by the prospect of the truffles arriving so quickly! However, bad weather had come to spoil the party (Stupid snow). News was the postal service was severely behind due to this. Despite the calamity of snow and poor service from the UK postal force, they arrived on Friday morning in a little box completely covered in ‘Priority delivery’. Wow. Less than a week and they were here even with all the commotion.
So, I had been impressed with everything so far, the set-up, service and delivery. Of course the most important thing was the product, so that evening I began my ‘analysis’ of the truffles, if you could call it that! It was decided that me and two friends would take the truffles, me having used them on a number of occasions beforehand and my two amigos having their first experiences.
The truffles came in two vacuum packs inside one small plastic box. We weighed out the truffles so we could all have an equal dose. When I weighed them out I expected to find the truffles weight somewhat diminished due to drying out whilst being delivered. I was pleasantly surprised to find the weight was more than I had ordered! Clearly the guys at Avalon had accounted for this and topped both packs up. Just over ten grams each was the dose. I knew that this would be more than enough for my friends and should have been just fine for me too.
I hadn’t eaten for a long period before taking the truffles so was certain that I would get something out of the experience, even though I would have liked to have had a few more grams for that extra kick! We got on with the task of chomping the truffles. They seemed to be fresher than I expected. The texture and taste was superbly similar to when I had taken them in Amsterdam. No loss of quality it seemed. Of course the taste isn’t very nice but that was a small price to pay for the experience that lied ahead.
So, we had taken the truffles and began the task of getting ourselves as comfortable as possible. We set up a mound of pillows and bed quilts to lie on, turned the lights off and had a lava lamp illuminate our environment. It’s safe to say this really helped the trip along nicely. After half an hour I noticed the some effects beginning to take place. I was very fidgety and realized that I had to be even more comfortable! After a few moments of finding the perfect position to lie in I was set.
The next hour involved reality becoming more distant and thinking patterns becoming odder. Time certainly slowed down to the point where I couldn’t believe we had only been laying there for an hour and a half! It seemed like much longer. It’s worth noting that at no point I felt out of control, or that things were going wrong. I felt at complete ease with the experience and after a couple of hours I was no longer in this reality. I got lost in the deepest of thought patterns, each as exciting and interesting as the last.
Every now and then each of us would come back to realize where we were. Leaving the environment for a toilet break wasn’t a big deal, soon on returning to my resting place I was right back to where I had been previously in my though patterns, as though I had never left. One of my friends felt overwhelmed at one point, asking ‘How long is this going to last!?’ I calmly replied that we were as safe as we have ever been, and that it will soon be nearing the end. This was enough for him to ease back into his own little world of thought.
There were stages of intense laughter thrown into the mix as well. However, the visuals were not as strong as I have had in the past, but I would put that down to the consumption of only ten grams rather than a good hit of fifteen. Nevertheless, geometric shapes where predominant at one point.
I can’t say for sure what my friends experienced as first time users, but they were very happy with the end results, one even admitting that the reality that we live in is awful compared to the one he had been a part of only a few hours ago. I had been able to take what I needed out of the trip, allowing myself to come back to reality so easily. This has to be for me the best comedown experience ever, in complete control with a wonderfully warm sensation.
Well, I suppose I could go into so much more detail about the experience, but words really wouldn’t do it justice. These truffles are of top, top quality! I will be ordering again for sure, as will my two friends who realize that we can learn so much more from the tools nature has provided us with!
Enough about the truffles, I think the contents of Avalon Magic Plants is definitely worth a mention. The array of things to choose from is really impressive. There are smoking paraphernalia such as pipes, bongs, grinders, lighters, vaporizers and more. Nearly every type of mushroom grow kit available. There are hundreds of different strains of marijuana seeds. Psychoactive cacti and salvia. Legal highs that you’ve never even heard of. An impressive display of naturally occurring plants, such as the lotus flower and khat. I could go on but really you need to check it out for yourself! (www.avalonmagicplants.com).
Well, I hope this helps anyone who is considering buying not just truffles but anything this site has to offer. They are extremely helpful and will reply to any queries you may have at break neck speed! I would highly recommend this site over the likes of magictruffles.com, coffeeshop.com and shamantar.com. Sites that I have used in the past! Thanks again Avalon Magic Plants!
