Understanding Psilocybin: Magic Mushrooms vs. Microdosing
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.
