6. Things you should know about using Psychoactives
If you do things responsibly, you won’t have anything to worry about. Don’t let anything get to your head, relax and don’t take this to serious. Just follow your intuition and hart and you will be fine!
Having said that, there are a few things you should know about using psychoactives. If you have a documented history of mental illnesses, taking psychoactives will make these conditions worse. The documentation regarding shrooms and truffles is severely lacking, so please take these with caution, even though they are considered the safest psychoactives to use.

That is why a “Sitter” is recommended to be with you at all times during your trip.
