How to Microdose Shrooms Properly


There's more than one way to skin a cat, and there is also more than one way to microdose mushrooms, but what way is the best? Microdosing is not an exact science, and personal preferences are what will drive your method. However, there are also some general guidelines you can adopt and tweak as needed until you figure out what works best for you.

If you are inexperienced with shrooming, you probably also have some general questions before you dive headfirst into microdosing, so we will first tackle some of the basis when it comes to recreational mushrooms, getting you primed and ready for an experience that will be unlike any other.

Recreational Mushrooms: How the Magic Happens

Recreational Mushrooms: How the Magic Happens

Magic mushrooms may have gained widespread popularity and recognition during the counterculture movements of the 1960s, but they have been around for much longer. There are some theories that they were used as far back as 4,000 BC, and there is written documentation of magic mushrooms going back to the 1500s.

A 1957 article in Life Magazine opened up the idea of magic mushrooms to the mainstream, and since then, there have been peaks and valleys in the magic mushroom movement, with legal efforts both against and in favor of them cropping up throughout the 20th century and continuing into the 21st. 

Recreational mushrooms, when prepared and ingested, can work in the body and brain to alter perceptions. Most magic mushrooms contain psilocybin, and once ingested, it converts to psilocin, which interacts with serotonin in our bodies. 

The effects include a wide array of sensations and hallucinations; magic mushrooms can make you see lights and colors around objects and people, or you may also experience an altered perception of time and memory.

Depending on the dose and the way the mushrooms affect you, you might have a slightly euphoric feeling, or you could have a full-blown transformative and spiritual experience.

These effects will generally wear off in 6 to 12 hours, but you may have some flashbacks well after that.

Types of Recreational Mushrooms

Magic mushrooms are not the kind that are popping up on your pizza or in your risotto—if they do, you are in for a big surprise after your meal!

Instead, these are specific mushrooms with psychedelic and psychoactive properties that generally belong to the Psilocybe genus. They can also be found in the Panaeolus, Pluteus, and Gymnopilus genera. 

For years, adventurous types have foraged for mushrooms in the wild, but this comes with a fair amount of risk as you must be skilled in prepping the mushrooms to get rid of the toxins that could make you ill.

Thankfully, there are now a wide variety of mushroom gummies available to consumers who can rest assured they have been prepped by professionals. Whether or not the mushrooms are legal is another question: psilocybin is still classified as a Schedule I drug. 

However, Amanita Muscaria mushroom gummies present a great alternative. Their psychoactive properties are derived from muscimol rather than psilocybin, and these kinds of mushrooms are still legal in most places, though Louisiana is an exception.

How to Microdose Shrooms Properly

Microdosing mushrooms is still relatively new, but we have seen promising results thus far.

The general idea is that an individual would consume somewhere between one-tenth and one-twentieth of the normal recreational dose. Some users microdose daily and, over time, see desired results such as an improved mood, enhanced focus, and increased creative energy.

The effects of magic mushrooms, whether in microdoses or full recreational doses, are skewed by certain variables, including the individual's weight and general mindset. Whether you take them on an empty or full stomach can also affect the results.

In order to achieve the best possible experience, start with the lowest microdose to determine how you are affected and also be sure to try it in a setting where you have some flexibility to adjust your schedule or your obligations. 

Microdoses are nowhere near as intense as full doses; however, you don’t want to try a microdose for the first time on the way out the door to an important meeting at work. Give yourself and your body a chance to adjust to any effects, and then once you see how you react, you can adjust future microdoses as needed.

One of the main crossover areas when it comes to mushrooms is people who also like to use THC gummies. There are some positive aspects to mixing the two, and some find that THC complements the effects of the mushrooms or even eliminates the possibility of nausea. 

However, only seasoned mushroom and cannabis users should try combining the two. If you do not know how your body will react to a mushroom gummy (in any dose), try them on their own first.

Mushrooms and alcohol can be an unpredictable and often negative combination. Anecdotally, we know that alcohol on top of mushrooms can result in a bad trip. For the best experience microdosing mushrooms, you may want to ensure you do not combine them with alcohol.

What You Should Know About Purchasing Mushroom Gummies

Before you purchase any kind of magic mushroom gummies, check the local laws and regulations where you live to ensure you have the latest information. Psilocybin remains illegal in most places, and Road Trip gummies are a great choice in that they are legal to purchase in most locations (with Louisiana being an exception).

Amanita mushroom gummies are a great way to experience the benefits of microdosing regularly or to make an occasional adventure even more exciting! Follow the recommended guidelines from Road Trip for an unforgettable experience you can tailor to your own preferences.
