Taking tiny amounts of psychedelics or microdosing doesn’t make you high but adds elusive effects to your mood and well-being, allowing you to present in the creative and motive.
As it doesn’t involve a wall melting ceiling shifting eight-hour trip, microdosing is a bit more socially acceptable to do mushrooms than to eat a heroic dose of 5 grams and trip serious balls.
Microdosing is the process of taking a small amount of a drug.
Microdosing can be done safer in human drug trials, testing new drugs.
Microdosing can experiment with the benefits of psilocybin, LSD, MDMA or other psychedelics to appreciate the subtle physiological effects with little to no adverse effects.
Psilocybin and LSD are the two most used to microdose psychedelics, but the list isn’t just limited to substances.
Microdosing other chemicals such as MDMA and one of the newer addition’s ketamine.
MDMA and ketamine can become very uncomfortable at regular doses, or high doses of ketamine are anastatic, and people have dissociative effects.
But these psychedelics under low microdose can profoundly affect mood and boost serotonin leading to similar results to those of psilocybin and LSD.
The most common benefits from microdosing and psilocybin therapy are as follows:
- Mood enhancer
- Better sleep
- Better eating habits
- Less need and want for caffeine and nicotine
- Less depression and anxiety
- It keeps you at the moment
- Focus enhancer
- Naturalistic enhancer
- Healthier self-care habits
- The solution to treatment-resistant depression
People who are great candidates for microdosing may have or are experiencing any of the following:
- Negative life experiences
- Verbal, emotional, or sexual abuse
What are the average amounts of someone microdosing for psilocybin therapy?
Depending on the person and the substance used will vary when it comes to microdosing.
However, the best practice for microdosing is to do between five and 10 percent a regular dosage.
The typical dose for psilocybin therapy is 2 grams; therefore, the microdose should be somewhere around 100 milligrams.
The first clinical trials for microdosing were pioneered in the 1970s.
Today people microdose for their therapeutic benefits, such as the reduction in anxiety and depression.
Microdosing can also increase creativity, happiness, and mood.
What can be the Dangers of Microdosing?
Just like any medication, you shouldn’t mix your microdose with poisonous alcohol or other forms of drugs.
This also includes any pharmaceuticals you are prescribed should not be taken well microdosing.
Some researchers and doctors say people should abstain from using caffeine or other stimulants as well.
It is always good practice to take your microdoses with good intentions and with positive vibes for now and in the future.
How often should you Microdose for Psychedelic Therapy?
It depends on the person’s needs and intentions.
Typically, people will take it one day on and one day off for 28 days.
I prefer the Paul Stamets approach, making it four days in a row with three days off.
Paul Stamets is someone who studies mushrooms or a mycologist.
Microdosing psilocybin therapy this way for a month will boost serotonin and dopamine levels back to baseline up to 6 months.
The following comes from my article entitled Microdosing Psilocybin: The Journal:
“Tuesday, September 21, 2021 – Day one back on psilocybin/lion’s mane – microdosing psilocybin.
We need to do things that push humanity forward.
If everyone contributes in simple acts to help humanity before you know it is over.
Is it in our best interest option as of now to be a multi-planetary species?
I believe it to be by far the best option.
Consciousness will live on, but the human species will not, and it will be an even shorter lifespan on this planet if we don’t work together now.“
