Similar to how Goldilocks tried to find oatmeal that was just the right temperate or a bed that was just the right firmness, microdosing aims to find the perfect happy medium. A place of center where you reap the benefits without impeding your ability to function as normal. The sweet spot.
Microdosing cannabis has become common practice as more people desire the benefits, without the feeling of being high. Less common, though equally effective, is microdosing psilocybin mushrooms!
Last week, we discussed the benefits of microdosing psilocybin mushrooms. Let’s briefly review!
Psilocybin mushrooms have been proven to help reduce depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, mood disorders, PTSD, and addiction. It has also shown to be incredibly effective in promoting mental well being, by improving creativity, energy, flow states, productivity/focus, relationships/increased empathy, athletic coordination, and leadership development! In short, psilocybin mushrooms help to reduce the frequency of undesirable mental states, and increase the frequency and intensity of desirable mental states. Sounds great, right?!
While there are any number of ways to try microdosing, it is important that you do follow a schedule if you are truly looking to make lasting changes in your body and mind.
According to The Third Wave, a resource for well-researched, high-quality information specific to the classic psychedelics, the James Fadiman’s system is preferred and recommended for those looking to begin their microdosing journey.
The Fadiman System is as follows:
Continue this process for several weeks. It is important that you keep your regular routine while microdosing, as the idea is to enhance your day to day life.
We also recommend keeping a journal to document how you respond to your treatment protocol, not only on the days you take a microdose, but on the days following, as well. According to The Third Wave and their studies, many people perceive increased feelings of flow, creativity, and energy the day after they microdose in addition to the day of microdosing.
Most of us do not have the time or desire to create our own microdoses. That is why magic mushroom products like chocolate, gummies, and teas are so great; they take the guess work out of your dose. You know exactly what you are taking, so you can create a microdosing schedule that works for you and your life.
The following are some of the mushroom products that we carry and are excellent for microdosing!

2 Packs of Iced Tea with .5 grams of Golden Teacher mushrooms per package
Summer is practically here and we look forward to sipping our Mystic Iced Tea out on a deck! If using the iced tea for microdosing, we recommend creating a full pack and then equally portioning it out into your microdoses.

2 grams (4 tea bags with .5 grams in each tea bag)
Our Mystic Jasmine & Oolong Tea is available in 1 and 2 gram options and is created using Blue Cabenzies mushrooms. Each dose is evenly split into 4 or 5 separate tea bags, making it perfect for microdosing! Similar to the iced tea, we recommend steeping a tea bag and then portioning into your microdoses.
