I worked some time in a smart shop in Amsterdam and during quarantine the locals could browse for psychedelics without the swarm of tourists.
During this time there was an incredible recurrence of elderly people buying our magic truffles for a psychedelic journey.
Mostly they searched for some kind of insight or new perspective on life. Many were just curious.
I discovered that the older people had an easy time guiding the trip. Even though the shift in perspective can be great and shocking for some, during the 4-hour experience there's space for a socking shift in point of view culminating in perfect climax of transcendental understanding. Like all the pieces of the puzzle fit together.
That's what my clients told me, at least.
