Truth be told, there are many natural substances out there that are great to use for different recreational purposes or even for productive reasons. Marijuana is a good example of this as this psychedelic plant may make you psychoactive. Fortunately, it also has great benefits on your body when used in the right dosage and for the right purposes. Another substance is what we call mushrooms. Also called “shrooms” or simply “mushrooms”, psilocybin mushrooms are great to use especially if you are only microdosing them. That said, you might need to read on if you want to know how to get microdose mushrooms.
What are mushrooms?
Magic mushrooms or shrooms are formally known as psilocybin mushrooms because they contain psilocybin. It is a psychoactive compound that can cause a certain type of psychoactive state that commonly makes people feel “high”.
Shrooms have long been one of the most widely used natural substances in the world when it comes to trying to get into a psychoactive state or to “get high”. There are pieces of evidence that suggest that magic mushrooms were used by ancient cultures all over the world for at least 9,000 years ago. And, in Spain, there are studies that prove that it was used about 6,000 years ago.
In ancient cultures, magic mushrooms were commonly used not for recreational purposes but for something more spiritual and religious. The psychoactive trance-like state that they induce were thought of as something divine or something that only the gods could do. As such, they were usually used for religious ceremonies. In some cases, shrooms were also used for medicinal purposes because of their effects. It was only just recently when magic mushrooms were more popular recreationally.
Are mushrooms safe?
Used recreationally, magic mushrooms are said to be safer than other psychoactive substances. Not only are they organic and all-natural but they are also regarded as less-addictive than other types of drugs. Moreover, they are less likely to overdose. This is because shrooms tend to decrease in terms of their psychoactive effects the more the user consumes them on a short-term basis. That is why people often experience that shrooms no longer have the same kinds of effects on you today than they did a few days ago.
Those same qualities and attributes are also the reasons why many people tend to microdose with shrooms. They choose to use magic mushrooms at the usual dosage that most people do to get that psychoactive kind of high.
What is microdosing?
The term is a bit self-explanatory. When you are microdosing, the word “micro” explains it all in a sense that you are not using the usual dose. Instead, you are only using minute amounts of the usual dosage. While the microdose might not be enough to make you feel really high or to give you that psychoactive sensation that people usually try to get when taking mushrooms, it is still enough to have a bit of effect that can influence your state for the entire day.
Microdosers, as people who microdose are called, usually use small amounts of magic mushrooms in some of their weekly or daily activities. While the effects of the mushrooms in sub-perceptual levels may be a bit subtle compared to when you take higher doses, it can still have a pretty good effect in the way you do things. In other words, you probably won’t get high or too psychoactive when microdosing with shrooms but you can still feel subtle effects that will really change the way you do things throughout the day.
The microdosers have reported that microdosing has helped them become more creative in their work and in their activities. It makes them more focused during work and other productive tasks that require their mind to function at its fullest. Some even believe that their energy levels tend to be higher when microdosing.
There are microdosers who also say that microdosing can increase and heighten their overall spiritual awareness. This can have an influence on the way all five of their senses are enhanced and improved. Microdosing also tends to be effective when treating mood-related conditions such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD.
Why microdose with magic mushrooms
As mentioned, when you are microdosing with magic mushrooms, you are taking them in levels that are not enough for you to feel the psychoactive high. Such psychoactive high distorts your sensory perceptions. It also makes deviations in the way you perceive reality. In other words, it is only sub-perceptual in the sense that you will hardly perceive any changes in your perceptions.
Also, microdosing with magic mushrooms will not cause any drastic changes in your mood or mindset. It will only have subtle effects that are not truly high enough to cause any major changes in your thinking and mood. However, it is still present.
To microdose with magic mushrooms, it can be pretty difficult to really microdose by simply using the mushrooms. That is because different magic mushrooms have different levels of psilocybin. It really depends on the strains. Moreover, mushrooms come in different sizes that all have different psilocybin contents. You also have to consider the fact that different parts of the mushroom all have their own psilocybin concentrations.
In such a case, it will be tricky to microdose if you just take a small piece of the mushroom. It’s because you would not be able to know how much psilocybin it contains. After all, that small piece might have the highest concentration of psilocybin in the entire mushroom. It might even be one of the more potent strains of shrooms.
How to microdose with magic mushrooms
To start, you might want to grind the mushrooms into a fine powder so that you will be mixing the different parts of the shrooms together. This will form a powdery substance that has an equal concentration of psilocybin, more or less. After that, try taking a tenth of a gram of that powder to see how you will react. If you feel changes in your senses, it might be a bit too much for you. Try to decrease the dosage to somewhere less than a tenth of a gram in your next dose. If you do not notice any drastic changes, that is probably your microdose sweet spot.
To make microdosing more convenient and easier on your tongue, try getting a few empty capsules and filling them with the powder. This makes the distribution of the dose equal. And if you do not like the taste of mushrooms, doing this will make sure that you are delivering the microdose without it touching your tongue.
