Microdosing psilocybin includes a few different, yet important guidelines to refer to. Everyone is on their own journey; however, we suggest and offer helpful information upon your microdosing venture.
Proper sourcing of the fungus, a couple different ways to microdose, and doses to take are included within this blog. Read on to learn how to microdose psilocybin.
First thing is first, source credible and pure psilocybin or (magic mushrooms).
The importance of finding the most uninterrupted and natural mushroom form (preferably organic) to begin with is essential. This way the dosage and unobstructed pure mushroom entity will be ingested.
Whether it’s doing your research and foraging for your own psilocybin mushrooms (pick wisely because the wrong mushroom could land you a bed in the hospital, or worse!) or it’s sourcing your mushrooms from a credible company or friend; knowing where your mushrooms come from are critical.
Due to the fact these mushrooms are being ingested, the importance of their organic nature is quite heightened. Pesticides are dangerous and could interrupt the quality and benefits the untouched version possesses so be sure to do your due diligence.
Ways to Microdose
There are a few different ways to ingest allocated microdoses of psilocybin. This could be in pure, whole mushroom form, powder form mixed in food or even steeped in tea or coffee.
Selecting the best way to microdose is completely up to you and what fits into your lifestyle or preferences.
Popular microdosing ways include:
- The chew and swallow method is just as simple as it sounds. This down the hatch method may appease some and not work for others due to the earthy and slightly bitter taste.
- Tea time anyone? Heat some hot water up (don’t boil it), chop up some mushrooms and toss em’ in. This magic tea will take 10-15 minutes to steep (letting the mushrooms rest in the water).
- Edibles can disguise the taste of psilocybin nearly completely. By adding crushed or ground up mushrooms into cooking, a sandwich, or any other culinary delight you wish may just be the most enjoyable way to ingest. Do note that adding them as a toping or after the “cooking” stage is the best option, as heat will break down the psilocybin components and effect the potency.
Doses to Take
Microdose doses are recognized as small amounts, you know “micro” doses. These doses are typically 1/10th to 1/20th the recreational dose amounts.
As you can imagine, microdosing is a very small amount and can range anywhere from .1 grams to .5 grams.
We suggest starting off small and adjusting as necessary.
To measure out your desired dose amount, use a kitchen scale.
Before you begin microdosing, do your research. Know and understand which drugs can counteract with this natural drug and do not take if those drugs are currently in your system.
It is also important to understand that in some cases, microdosing can effect an individual who has current medical disorders adversely.
