Can I microdose while working?

Yes! Each microdose is, at most, 1/10th of the amount you would take for a normal trip. With the right dose, you should not be tripping and will be able to complete daily tasks such as sending important emails, attending work meetings, and even driving.

Can I microdose while parenting?

Absolutely. Here is a quote from a microdosing mother I worked with recently:

Can I microdose while on pharmaceutical medication?

It depends. The most common question asked is “Can I microdose while on SSRIs.” Microdosing participants I’ve worked with have indeed microdosed mushrooms while on antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication with no strong interactions. Click here for a list of medications that participants have used with no poor effects while microdosing mushrooms and/or LSD.

How long should I microdose?

It is usually suggested to try 10 cycles (with the 1 day on 2 days off protocol) over a period of 4 weeks before deciding if you want to move forward with microdosing long term. The length of time is different for everyone.

What can I expect to feel?

You should expect to feel nothing! Just kidding… :) but there is some truth here. A microdose should be exactly that — micro. While you should not feel at all like you are tripping when you take your microdose, what you will experience is neuroplasticity in real time. However, the microdoses need time to build up in your body before you can experience this in full.

  • Creativity (more ideas, exploring new activities)
  • Focus (mental clarity, not easily distracted)
  • Social (more present and connected with others)
  • Body awareness (noticing sensations in the body, a longing to make healthier choices)
