2. New UK psilocybin mushroom/truffle supervision service

If you're going to consume psilocybin-containing mushrooms or truffles, it's safest to do so in the presence of an experienced supervisor. If you are already in possession of psilocybin mushrooms or truffles, and are already set on consuming them, you may apply for our new UK mushroom/truffle supervision service.

If your application is accepted, we'll liase with you to find a suitable time and place in the UK for you to take the mushrooms/truffles under supervision. Read more and apply

3. Netherlands Psychedelic Experience Weekends

“The weekend was one of the most profound, deeply moving and healing experiences of my life. It surpassed all my expectations. I felt very safe throughout the weekend, and the venue was well chosen.”

The Psychedelic Society's Psychedelic Experience Weekends are a means of having a safe, legal and affordable psychedelic experience in a setting conducive to mystical/spiritual experience. The psychedelic used at the weekends is the psilocybin-containing truffle. Weekends will take place regularly throughout 2017 in country houses close to Amsterdam. Read more and apply
