What are Psilocybin Mushrooms?

Psilocybin mushrooms, commonly known as magic mushrooms, harbor a natural marvel within them: the compound psilocybin. When consumed, this substance metamorphoses into psilocin, bestowing upon it the power to reshape perception, mood, and cognition. Recent scientific endeavors and clinical trials have unveiled a trove of potential benefits held within these fungi. In therapeutic settings, psilocybin exhibits promise as a transformative tool in the battle against depression, anxiety disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder, offering a ray of hope for those who have struggled with conventional treatments.


Guide to Psilocybin Mushroom Dosages

1. Start Low and Go Slow

  • Microdose (0.1 – 0.5g): A microdose is a sub-perceptual amount, meaning you won’t experience significant psychedelic effects. It can enhance mood, focus, and creativity.
  • Threshold Dose (0.5 – 2g): At this level, effects are mild, including slight changes in perception, mood, and possibly enhanced creativity.

2. Moderate Dosage

  • Light Trip (2 – 3.5g): This range produces noticeable psychedelic effects without being overwhelming. Expect altered perception, increased introspection, and enhanced senses.

3. Stronger Experiences

  • Standard Trip (3.5 – 5g): This range is more intense and may lead to profound introspection, visual distortions, and potential ego dissolution.
  • Heroic Dose (5g and above): This is a high dose and can lead to intense, potentially overwhelming experiences. It’s recommended only for experienced users in a safe and controlled environment.

Important Considerations:

Set and Setting: Your mental state and physical environment greatly influence the experience. Choose a safe, comfortable, and familiar space.

Sitter: Having a sober and experienced friend (a “sitter”) can provide support and help if needed, especially at higher doses.

Avoid Mixing Substances: Avoid combining psilocybin with other substances, including alcohol, to minimize risks.

Medical Considerations: If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are on medication, consult a healthcare professional before consuming psilocybin.

Integration: After the experience, take time to reflect and integrate what you’ve learned. Journaling can be helpful.

Respect the Substance: Approach psilocybin with respect and intention. It is not a recreational substance for everyone.

Remember, individual tolerance and sensitivity vary. What might be a moderate dose for one person could be intense for another. Always err on the side of caution, especially if you’re new to psychedelics. Finally, be aware that the effects of psilocybin can last several hours, so plan accordingly.

Guide to Microdosing Psilocybin Mushrooms


Microdosing involves taking sub-perceptual doses of psilocybin to experience subtle benefits without the full-blown psychedelic effects. Here’s a brief guide:

1. Dosage:

  • Start Low: Begin with 0.1 – 0.3 grams of dried psilocybin mushrooms. Adjust as needed, but always start low.

2. Schedule:

  • Day 1 (Dose Day): Take the microdose in the morning. It’s recommended to do this every 2-3 days.
  • Day 2 (Off Day): Allow a day of rest to observe any lingering effects or insights.
  • Day 3 (Integration Day): Reflect on the effects and insights gained from the microdose.

3. Setting Intentions:

  • Set Clear Intentions: Clearly define what you hope to achieve or experience with microdosing. It could be increased focus, creativity, or mood enhancement.

4. Observation:

  • Keep a Journal: Record your thoughts, feelings, and experiences on dose days and integration days. This helps track progress.

5. Lifestyle Considerations:

    • Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Eat well, exercise, and get enough rest. A holistic approach enhances the benefits of microdosing.

Guide to Macro-Dosing Psilocybin Mushrooms


Macro-dosing involves taking higher doses of psilocybin mushrooms for a more intense, potentially psychedelic experience. Here’s a brief guide:

1. Dosage:

  • Start with Caution: If you’re new to macro-dosing, begin with 2-3 grams of dried psilocybin mushrooms. Increase gradually over subsequent sessions if desired.
  • 2. Setting:

  • Choose a Safe Environment: Opt for a calm, familiar space with minimal external disruptions.
  • Have a Sitter: It’s highly recommended to have a sober and experienced friend to provide support and ensure safety.

3. Set Intentions:

  • Define Clear Goals: Establish what you hope to gain from the experience, such as introspection, creativity, or personal growth.

4. Preparation:

  • Empty Stomach: It’s generally advised to consume psilocybin on an empty stomach for a smoother onset.

5. Safety and Caution:

    • Avoid Mixing Substances: Refrain from combining psilocybin with other substances, including alcohol, to minimize risks.
    • No Driving: Never drive or operate machinery under the influence of psilocybin.

6. Integration:

  • Reflect and Integrate: After the experience, allocate time for reflection and integration of insights gained.

7. Post-Experience Care:

  • Rest and Rehydrate: Ensure adequate rest and hydration after the experience.

8. Medical Considerations:

  • Consult a Professional: If you have any underlying health conditions or are on medication, consult a healthcare professional.

9. Monitor Effects:

  • Be Mindful of Dosage: Pay attention to how your body and mind respond. Adjust dosage in subsequent sessions as needed.

10. Respect the Substance:

  • Approach with Reverence: Remember that macro-dosing can lead to intense experiences. Treat psilocybin with respect.

11. Integration Period:

  • Allow Time for Reflection: Give yourself several days or even weeks to process and integrate the experience.

12. Note on Duration:

  • Allocate Sufficient Time: A macro-dosing experience can last several hours. Make sure you have a block of time set aside.
