Microdosing

Microdosing involves taking a sub-perceptual dose of magic mushrooms that is not intense enough to produce noticeable psychedelic effects. Micro-doses are typically a fraction of a regular Macro-dose, often around 1/10th or 1/20th of the normal dose. The purpose of Microdosing is to experience subtle benefits without the pronounced psychedelic effects. Microdosing is thought to enhance cognition, creativity, focus, and mood. It is often used as a tool for productivity, self-improvement, and general well-being.

Macrodosing

Macrodosing is taking a relatively high dose of magic mushrooms with the intention of inducing a profound psychedelic experience. When macrodosing, the experience will always be followed by significant perceptual and sensory, and intense introspection. More often than not it will lead to a loss of connection with normal reality, sending you on a journey in the psychedelic realm. The purpose of Macro-dosing is often centered around spiritual exploration, personal growth, and profound transformative experiences.

PREPARATION

Coaching before this type of plant medicine is not uncommon. Preparation includes creating an intention, or a focus on what it is you’d like to work through. How long your session lasts depends on your dosage, and your dosage is determined by your intention – so preparation is connecting all of this.

INTEGRATION

After a mushroom experience, your brain has heightened neuroplasticity, making it more receptive to change. During integration, you’ll want to reflect on any significant experiences from your journey and understand what parts you can bring to life. For most, that means practicing yoga, meditating, journaling, and maybe a sound bowl or two – whatever works best for you.
