  1. I actually watched this video when it came out, then went to Amsterdam to find some of these magic mushroom truffles. Amsterdam is a crappy place, and those truffles are nothing like the actual mushrooms. They are weak, not potent. I’d suggest to stick with buying spore syringes from sporeology, and getting the quality kinds, if you know what I mean. Stay away from amsterdam, its not all that its cracked up to be.

  2. Some people still in love with magic mushrooms. There are Magic Mushrooms Spores are there to cultivate own mushrooms and some of them grow very fast either truffles take time grow.

  3. After the ban on Mushrooms, truffles has take his place. Magic Truffles are like shrooms but different in taste. There are variety of truffles available which gives you different taste and effects. Online shops like are selling these truffles and spores to cultivate as well as.

  4. Shamanic experience. From a warehouse.

  5. Hamiltons dry adolescent characteristics really dampen this short documentary, like a sales assistant in American Apparel, he holds a lack of enthusiasm and clearly makes a conscious effort to appear vague and disinterested.

    For anyone who hasn’t already been, Amsterdam isn’t all that great. Although it has a quaint river and cobbled streets, it’s filled with the shittest shops, restaurants, bars and general atmosphere.. I recommend 3 days maximum.

  6. I have to say, having already tested the exact trufles described in the documentary, that it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. Suicide? Killing a dog? So far from it you couldn”t see it with the telescope.
    The trufles I have tried (can’t remember the exact name) made me really happy, I laughed my ass off (weed never gave me such a funny-laughter-vibe) and had this wam-hug the world-love everyone feeling.
    I was actually quite surprised to hear about the accusations that were placed on the effet of magic mushrooms but I can’t pronounce myself on that matter, never having tried them myself.

    Nontheless, magic truffles? BEST EXPERIENCE ever! No side effects, no coming down, no addiction, no nada. Just the memory of a real fun weekend in Amsterdam.

  7. Good little doc that to be fair, we’re not mad trippers but love DAM.

  8. Please not be Hamilton. Please not be Hamilton. Aw. “closes tab”

  9. Pretty cool little doc about mushrooms n truffles
    Magic mushies grow wild all over the place here in Vancouver BC. They came up around the tree in the front yard this year.
    Not legal here yet though… Won’t be long for the killer kush to be taxed and sold in shops Huge strides made in Washington this week. Kudos!
    K, rambling.

  10. The host’s voice is incredibly irritating and his failed, rambling attempts to sound journalistically artistic almost completely ruined this for me. The words barely slithered out of his head before reaching my ears.

  11. Lol, Hazerswoude – Dorp is right next to the village I am from. Had no idea they grew truffles there.

  12. Hmm, well, now I know about the truffle brothers. I wonder if they financed this doc. Luckily this was short enough to watch in its entirety, but not short enough to be a bit bored.
