FAQ

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I MICRODOSE?

If you are new to microdosing, we recommend starting with one 100mg microdose on the first day, and a 200mg dose on the second day.

Take a break on the third day to evaluate your sweet spot.

After that, take your microdose every other day. 

Many people experiment and find out what schedule works best them.

Everyone is different so there isn't an exact science to dosage schedules. 

We absolutely encourage a break every other day, or at least every few days. Up to 3 – 100mg capsules are a safe range for a microdose. 

ARE THERE MEDICATIONS I CANT TAKE WITH MICRODOSING?

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed medications for many psychological disorders, including depression, OCD, PTSD, and anxiety.

SSRIs work by temporarily boosting serotonin levels which, in rare cases, can lead to serotonin syndrome, which can be fatal.

It is therefore not safe to take psilocybin, even in microdoses, when on an SSRI.

CAN PSILOCYBIN BE DETECTED IN A DRUG TEST?

Psilocybin and its metabolites are not included in most standard drug screens; however they are sometimes included in extended drug screens.

IS MICRODOSING SAFE?

One thing is for certain – with micro dosing, there is no risk of having a "bad trip" or experiencing intense psychedelic effects.

Taking a microdose is the ideal way to be introduced to psychedelics safely and comfortably.

What are medicinal mushrooms, and what do they do?

Medicinal mushrooms are fungi that contain bioactive compounds shown to have health-promoting properties in the body.

Most of these mushrooms have a long history of usage in traditional medicine, particularly in Asia, where fungi have been used in preventative and therapeutic treatment for over 3000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Modern science continues to substantiate the therapeutic benefits of chemicals produced by medicinal mushrooms.

They produce a variety of substances that have the ability to influence our physiological processes.

How long before I notice a change in my body?

The change will be subtle and varies depending on the person.

Some people experience an increase in immune function after just two weeks of consistent use, as exampled by a shortened cold duration, or not getting sick during the season at all.

It is important to understand that mushrooms work as adaptogens, and the benefits of adaptogens are seen through prolonged and consistent use to increase the body's resilience.

Are there any benefits from consuming mushrooms?

Medicinal mushrooms contain polysaccharides called beta-glucans.

 

Beta-glucans have been shown to directly activate receptors in our small intestine and act as immuno-modulators, meaning that these compounds interact with the immune system to up-regulate or down-regulate our immune response. 

WHAT ACTUALLY MAKES MUSHROOMS MEDICINAL?

Medicinal mushrooms are packed with triterpenes, phenols, sterols, statins, indole compounds, and enzymes.

 

Mushrooms are also high in amino acids, nicotinic acid, riboflavin, vitamins B, C, and K, and pantothenic acid.

 

Some medicinal mushrooms are also adaptogens.

In addition to their immuno-modulating capacity, medicinal mushrooms display antioxidant, anticancer, antimicrobial (viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic), anti-diabetic, anti-hyper-cholesterolemic, adaptogenic, hepato-protective, and neuro-protective properties.
