ATL7 is a sclerotia (truffle) producing psilocybe known as Atlantis Number 7. Atl7 in recent years was discovered to share common genetic sequence with Psilocybe Tampenensis. Although has been found to be more effective at producing truffles than fruit bodies. While other Tampenensis seems to produce some variety in size of caps, truffle(Stones) and flushing fruits prolifically. The ATL7 is an absolute keeper for any collector of truffle producing species.
Magic truffles, also known as sclerotia, are a type of psychoactive fungi that are native to certain parts of the world, including Amsterdam in the Netherlands. These truffles are legal in the Netherlands and are commonly sold in smart shops as a legal alternative to magic mushrooms.
The use of psychedelic mushrooms and truffles in Amsterdam can be traced back to the 1960s and 1970s when they were first used by members of the counterculture movement. During this time, Amsterdam became a hub for hippies and other young people who were seeking alternative lifestyles and experimenting with drugs.
In the 1990s, the Dutch government decided to decriminalize the sale of magic mushrooms, which led to an increase in popularity and availability. However, in 2008, following a series of negative incidents involving tourists who had taken magic mushrooms, the Dutch government passed legislation banning the sale of mushrooms. This led to the rise in popularity of magic truffles, which were not covered by the ban.
Magic truffles are harvested from the underground sclerotia of certain species of mushrooms, including Psilocybe mexicana and Psilocybe tampanensis. They contain the same psychoactive compounds as magic mushrooms, namely psilocybin and psilocin, and can induce altered states of consciousness, feelings of euphoria, and visual hallucinations.
