Microdosing With Magic Mushrooms Or LSD

Your substance of choice will depend on two things.

(1) Your goals — Do you want more creativity, or more focus? Do you want to become more emotionally attuned, or more logically oriented? Do you want to exercise more empathy and create more opportunities for connection, or do you want to ‘give fewer f*cks’ about what other people think? Choosing one focus is not better or worse. Nor is it exactly as clear as black or white — but your goals will affect your choice of substance.

(2) Your unique response to each substance. Each substance will affect you differently. For example:

  • When I microdose with psilocybin, I notice more creativity, empathy, and openness, and less focus, logic, and analytical thinking.
  • When I microdose with LSD, I notice the opposite: more focus and logical thinking, less empathy and openness.

Your mileage will vary; find what works for you.

Microdosing With Magic Mushrooms.

What it is: “Magical mushrooms” contain the psychoactive compound psilocybin. They can be eaten, brewed into tea, or coated with chocolate.

Measurements of psilocybin mushrooms usually refer to dried whole mushrooms. One important fact about whole mushrooms is that the psilocybin content of caps is significantly higher than stems, per weight. For consistent doses, only stems (or only caps) should be used for microdosing.

How microdosing it feels: About an hour or two after ingesting the microdose, people notice an increase in focus and energy. Many users find that it helps with weaning off — and staying off — anti-depressants. It can help lessen the side effects of withdrawal and even mitigate depression. Many speak to the drug’s ability to increase empathy, too.

For measurements, use a mini kitchen scale (like this one) that can detect increments as little as 0.001g. To contain each dose and prevent a bitter taste, try gelatin capsules — they’re available through Amazon.

Dr. Fadiman recommends taking one microdose every 3 days so as to prevent changes in tolerance over time. He says,“the first day you feel great. The second day you would feel half of that. And the third day you won’t feel anything.”

Week 1: Mon/Thu/Sun
Wk  2: Wed/Sat
Week 3: Tue/Fri
Week 4: Mon/Thu/Sun

Dosage: Start with lowest dose in the first 2 weeks (10ug LSD or 0.2g mushrooms), then progress to a higher dose in the following weeks.

We hope that this article helps better inform you on how amazing and interesting shrooms are, and whether they are the right fit for you. Read more about these magical fungi at our previous blog post here.
