Amsterdam psychedelic scene is like a hidden club that people are only now starting to learn about. People in the Netherlands have been into psychedelics for a long time, especially when it comes to psilocybin mushrooms. We’ll talk about everything you need to know about Dutch-style psychedelics in this helpful guide.
What’s Cool and What’s Not in the Law
There are some cool things and some fuzzy things in Amsterdam. Hash and weed? Legal as heck. They’re in “coffee shops” everywhere. But it’s not so easy with mushrooms. You shouldn’t eat psychedelic mushrooms, but you can eat truffles or philosopher’s stones, which are related to mushrooms but grow underground. What about the other cool stuff, like LSD, DMT, and MDMA? There are fewer laws, but they are still less strict than most places.
Find Out Where to Get Psychedelic Truffles

Getting ready for a psychedelic trip
Because Amsterdam is such a chill place, it’s a great place to go on a trippy trip. You can go almost anywhere, but watch out for the fast bikes. Go to Stone’s Café Bar and Nightclub for a wild night. Vondelpark is a huge green area close to important buildings that you should check out if you want to be outside. A bright art museum called Electric Ladyland is there for you if you want to see a lot of art on your trip.

Long-term side effects are less common, but they can include memory problems, psychosis, and flashbacks. What is the key? Moderation and being aware of what’s going on around you.
