How to MicroDose
Ideally, a psilocybin microdose will not cause a substantial change in mood, disposition, or mindset. Instead, its effect will be subtle but present.
Not only will fresh and dried psilocybin mushrooms contain different quantities of psilocybin, but different strains of mushrooms will have different psychoactive contents. Even different parts of the mushroom contain slightly different amounts of psilocybin.
You can use any kind of psilocybin mushrooms for your microdosing. The most popular are Psilocybe cubensis, Psilocybe semilanceata, Psilocybe azurecens, Psilocybe cyanescens, and Panaeolus. You can learn about the potency levels of different Psilocybe strains at Erowid.
There are several ways to take your mushroom microdose. The most practical one is to take your capsule with food. Another way is to prepare a psilocybin tea. You can dissolve your capsule of mushroom powder in hot water, and even add some honey. Otherwise, you are free to experiment and mix the powder into any drink you take to start your day.
What Schedule Should I Follow?
James Fadiman recommends taking a microdose once every three days. For most people, morning is the best time because the beneficial effects will last throughout the day, and also because nighttime microdosing could interfere with sleep.
Take a mushroom microdose on Day 1. Then do not take a microdose on Day 2 or Day 3.
Then, take another mushroom microdose on Day 4.
Observe the effects throughout this process by taking daily notes in a journal.
Continue the process of microdosing two times per week for several weeks. Take notes throughout the entire process on both short-term, in-the-moment effects, and long-term changes in your mood, energy, and social behavior.
Follow your usual routine while microdosing. You should not change what you do. The purpose is to enhance your day-to-day existence by integrating microdoses into your routine.
