10 tips you can use for a bad trip

Written by: Lizzy van de Berg

The use of truffles and magic mushrooms, known for their psychoactive substance psilocybin, usually leads to profound and often positive experiences. However, as with any potent substance, there is a small chance of experiencing a 'bad trip'. Although these experiences are rare, it's important to be prepared for how to handle them should they occur.

A 'bad trip' can be characterized by anxiety, confusion, and sometimes intense negative emotions or thoughts. It's important to remember that these experiences are temporary. In this blog, we share our advice on how to handle these experiences while using truffles or magic mushrooms.

1. Recognize and accept the situation

It's crucial to acknowledge that you're going through a difficult experience. Accept that these feelings are temporary and can be part of the psychedelic experience.

2. Stay in a safe environment

We advise staying in a quiet, safe environment. Avoid crowded or unfamiliar places. A familiar and comfortable space can help reduce anxiety.

3. Don't be alone

If possible, make sure you're not alone. A sober, trusted person as a 'sitter' can provide reassurance and support.

4. Focus on breathing

Deep, controlled breathing can help you stay calm. We advise focusing on your breathing to relax both body and mind.

5. Avoid panic

It's easy to panic, but this can worsen the situation. Remind yourself that the effects are temporary and will fade.

6. Distraction and comfort

Simple activities like listening to calm music or watching soothing images can help. Comfortable clothing and soft lighting are also recommended.

7. Hydrate and eat lightly

While you may not feel like eating, light food and hydration can help. We suggest drinking water and perhaps some easily digestible snacks.

8. Avoid further stimulation

We recommend avoiding stimulants like caffeine. The use of other substances is also discouraged as they can intensify the experience.

9. Use calming techniques

Techniques such as mindfulness or gentle yoga can help calm your mind. We suggest focusing on the present moment and staying calm.

10. Use our Trip Stopper

The Trip Stopper minimizes the trip effects. Valerian helps you relax, reducing the bad trip effects, and dextrose helps neutralize the effects of the mushrooms. Click here for more information about the ‘Trip Stopper’.


A 'bad trip' while using truffles or magic mushrooms can be a challenging experience, but by following these tips, you can handle the situation in a safer and more manageable way. Remember the importance of listening to your body and mind and seeking support when needed. Reminding yourself that this experience is temporary can also help in navigating these challenging moments.
