Microdosing is the act of consuming sub-perceptual (unnoticeable) amounts of a psychedelic substance. Many individuals who have integrated microdosing Magic mushrooms into their weekly routine report higher levels of creativity, more energy, increased focus, and improved relational skills, as well as reduced anxiety, stress, and even depression. Some enthusiasts also report that microdosing psilocybin has helped them heighten their spiritual awareness and enhance their senses.
Psychedelic researchers have also discovered that psilocybin can have positive effects on mood disorders and anxiety.
Mushrooms (and LSD) have also been found to have comparable or better results in treating cluster headaches than most conventional medications
With all these encouraging results on full doses of psilocybin, there’s reason to believe that microdosing bring positive life changes.
HOW DO YOU MICRODOSE WITH MAGIC MUSHROOMS?
Microdosing with psilocybin mushrooms is a fairly straightforward process. Essentially, you need to prepare your microdoses, consume the microdose at the appropriate time, and follow a month-long protocol to ensure you experience lasting benefits.
You can start with a dose as low as 100 mg (or less). Then, after your first microdose you can adjust and increase accordingly. Since you’re already taking detailed notes of your experience you can increase the dose until you get to an amount that makes you feel some changes (drowsiness is likely the first impacts you’ll notice) and then roll the dose back to just under that (you’ve found your sweet spot). A reminder that if you’re going to do it this way ensure you’re doing so on days void of responsibility in case you feel that onset of drowsiness.
We recommend this microdosing protocol.
We suggests taking a microdose every day for four days, then taking three days off to avoid building up a tolerance.
Microdosing every day is not recommended. Because your body produces a tolerance to psilocybin, you might see diminishing returns after a few days if they are taken every day.
Many people microdose for personal development or purposes of self-optimization. Reports suggest that the practice can improve creativity, productivity, and energy. Countless people also microdose to help them solve work-related problems, create new concepts, or simply to reduce procrastination. Microdosing can also help you by improving your social interaction skills, athletic performance, and spiritual awareness.
