Both magic mushrooms and microdosing contain the psychedelic compound known as psilocybin. This turns into psilocin when ingested, which is responsible for sensations including bursts of creativity, heightened productivity levels, and mind-opening ‘trips’. In fact, when you microdose psilocybin mushrooms, the difference is exactly that --- you’re simply taking smaller (or micro) doses of full-sized magic mushrooms! The average microdose is only 1/10th of the psilocybin dosage needed to ‘trip’, so you won’t feel any hallucinogenic effects. This makes typical magic shrooms more preferable for those looking to experience the ‘mind-awakening’ psychedelic effects.
What Is The Right Dosage Of Psilocybin Mushrooms To Take?
If you’re brand new to the world of psilocybin and unsure of how large of a dose to take, it’s recommended you start with 1 gram (or less), then wait an hour before you decide to take more. A low dosage or microdose of magic mushrooms (0.25 to 1 gram) is typically associated with slight body highs and giddy feelings. At moderate dosages (1 to 3 grams), objects will appear to ‘breathe’ and you’ll experience a noticeable body high, pure euphoria, time dilation, and deep introspection. At higher dosages, you may experience profound spiritual insight and visual hallucinations. However, it’s important to remember everybody reacts different
