The ‘Mind-Awakening’ Properties of Psilocybin Mushrooms
Whether you’ve heard your friends rave about their life-changing psilocybin ‘trips’ or read the countless news articles from clinical professionals discussing its various health benefits, psilocybin shrooms have taken the world by storm! Shrooms are best known for their psilocybin properties and psychedelic effects on the mind. When taken in large enough dosages, users experience may experience an ever-praised ‘trip.’ Today, their recent scientific and mainstream popularity revolves around the medley of benefits it can provide users. This includes the treatment of depression, anxiety, OCD, drug & alcohol addictions, and other similar ailments.
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.
