Magic mushrooms are known as substances that have a hallucinogenic effect when consumed in a dose that is equal to or around 1 gram. When it comes to microdosing magic mushrooms, the technique refers to the administration of doses that are a fraction of standard doses can be administered to adults, usually around 0.1 gram. While standard doses of psilocybe cubensis mushrooms almost always induce psychedelic effects, such as hallucinations, microdosing is free from those effects – here is how administering only very, very small doses prevent the negative effects without compromising the positive ones:
- No altered sensory perceptions and no altered state of mind – when administered in the form of a microdose, psylocibin does not generate any hallucination or other similar effects;
- Positive effects maintained – according to online retailers offering 100% organic mushroom spores for sale, the studies conducted into the emotional effects of magic mushrooms have shown that microdosing the mushrooms still offers the emotional benefits associated with the mushrooms. The studies conducted with the participation of volunteers suffering from anxiety, depression or PTSD have confirmed that even the very small doses of magic mushrooms delivered the positive emotional effects and eased their symptoms. Microdosing the mushrooms also has cognitive benefits, such as improved focus, concentration, memory and enhance the social skills.
