microdosing

    Microdosing vs Normal Dosing?

With normal dosing, you use between 1/2 a gram to 1/8th (3.5 grams) all at once, one or two times a month. With microdosing, you use anywhere from 1/2 a gram to 1/8th (3.5 grams) throughout the month. The difference being, with microdosing, you won’t have any of the psychedelic effects. The psychedelic effects begin around 1/2 a gram, and the more you take, the more you will experience.

How does microdosing help with spiritual growth:

Magic Mushrooms allow us to reduce the separation between our body and spirit. They further our connection with what exists inside us beyond this physical realm. Both the normal & micro dose can help you heal.

How does microdosing heal you?: 

The healing effects of mushrooms come from your true self. So.  If you seek to improve focus, meditation,  creativity, mindfulness, energy, or reduce anxiety, depression, stress, microdosing can be a great introduction to the path of becoming who you can be.

How much is a microdose? 

Most people start at 1/20 (0.05 g) to 1/10 (0.1g) of a standard dose of mushrooms and adjust based on their experience. Therefore. a microdose of mushrooms can range from 0.05g to 0.3g. If you are experiencing visual effects, you have taken too much.

Reset / Tolerance Break: All microdose protocols schedule 2 to 4 weeks of rest after you have completed a 4 to 8 week microdosing journey. Therefore, This break or reset is essential to prevent tolerance and maintain the effects of the mushrooms.

Protocols: There are six basic microdosing protocols. There are several reasons why you might want to use a different schedule. So, we recommend that you keep a journal to track the effects.

1. The Fadiman Microdosing Protocol

One of the most well-known protocols for microdosing is the ‘Fadiman protocol’. Also, Its creator, James Fadiman, says that this protocol is primarily intended to help you to observe the effects of microdosing. It is a 3-day cycle, 1-day-on, 2-days-off, which you follow for 4 to 8 weeks.

DAY 1 DAY 2 – DAY 3
Microdose day Normal Day
Every 3 days for 4 to 8 weeks

2. Two Fixed Days a Week Microdosing Protocol
therefore, Some people prefer a fixed scheme that matches your weekly work or social routine. If that’s your case, choose 2 fixed days in a week that fit your schedule best. Keep at least 1 day between dosing!

DAY 1 DAY 2 – DAY 3 DAY 4
Microdosing
day of your choice
(i.e. Wednesday)
Normal Day 2nd microdosing
day of your choice
(i.e. Saturday)
Every 3 to 4 days for 4 to 8 weeks

 

3. Every Other Day Microdosing ProtocolSimply put, 1-day-on, 1-day-off for one month.

DAY 1 DAY 2
Microdose day Normal Day
CYCLE: Every other day for 1 month

4. Paul Stamets’ Microdosing Protocol
A 7-day cycle, 4-days-on, 3-days-off, which you follow for 2 to 4 weeks.

DAY 1-4 DAY 5-7
Microdose day Normal Day
CYCLE: 4 days on, 3 days off for 1 month

Stamets’ Stacking: According to Paulso so, the combination of psilocybin, niacin (vitamin B3), and Lion’s Mane medicinal mushroom have a positive, lasting effect on the brain. He calls the use of these three substances ‘stacking’. The Stamets’ Stack combination is:
Lion’s Mane, psilocybin, and Vitamin B3/ Niacin.

5. Intuitive Microdosing Protocol
Another way of microdosing is to do it entirely intuitively. Take one when you feel like it. The only rule being you always leave at least one day between the days you take a microdose.

6. ‘Nightcap’ Microdosing Protocol
The ‘Nightcap’ protocol can be used with any microdose protocol, with the only difference being that the microdose is consumed before going to bed. Some people experience fatigue while microdosing mushrooms during the day. To prevent that, they take their microdose before bedtime and enjoy a good night’s sleep. With the Nightcap it’s recommended to take the microdose at least an hour before going to bed. People who microdose according to this protocol indicate that their dreams are more vivid. They wake up more rested and brighter than before they started microdosing.
