Magic mushrooms, ‘shrooms, or psilocybin, is a potent psychedelic drug that people have been using for thousands of years for spiritual purposes.
Ancient cultures have used these hallucinogenic mushrooms to “open up” to powerful, protective forces within their psyches.
Taking psilocybin obviously comes with risks. Still, microdosing magic mushrooms in a small amount is gaining popularity.
Microdosing refers to taking very small quantities of psychedelic substances — which are not enough to get you high. However, it’s just enough to bring on positive side effects.
Measuring a microdose is typically 1/10 of a regular psychedelic “trip” dose. Although these are hallucinogens, microdoses don’t often induce many, if any.
The answer isn’t the same for everyone as many different factors can play a role.
Before ingesting shrooms, there are a few things to keep in mind: Know your set (mindset) and the setting.
Find a suitable space to have your psilocybin experience, one that will make you feel comfortable and safe.
