Anyone mess around with microdosing mushrooms?

Something I've been reading up on a lot lately. Have some veteran buddies that started recently and it's helped them tremendously.


Anyone have any experience?

More LSD than shrooms. The problem for me is after a couple of months of micro dosing, I accidentally took too big of a dose and had to call out the next day. Haven't touched any hallucinogens since then and don't plan to.

Man, I couldn't imagine LSD and trying to work.Β 

I've noticed in my experiences with mushrooms, my appreciation for every customer I talk to is extremely heightened. Truly not thinking about a sale, but rather just trying to connect personally with everyone I talk to.Β 

For whatever reason, it's extremely satisfying.Β

My buddy swears by microdosing mushrooms... I'm more of a macro dose type person.Β 

But in all seriousness, he describes it as an IV drip of caffeine with mental clarity and more positive outlook overall. He does it 2-3 a week on his busiest days.Β

I fucking love mushrooms - helps me conquer my demons when I was younger and puts me in a positive mood.Β 

10/10 recommend, but you have to know yourself.Β

It's easily my favorite "drug". It's helped me with a lot of childhood trauma that I didn't realize was ever there.Β 

As much as I thought the whole "3rd eye" stuff was bullshit, I believe it more than ever. It truly expands your mental capacity and appreciation for all things.Β

Knowing yourself is key. The magic line between "Good" and "Bad" trips.

Not at work but I heard that LSD/mushrooms can have very positive effects when it comes to dealing with PTSD

In the right setting and at the right dosage, they really can help. Taking them then going clubbing and drinking - not so much.

100%. I've done both multiple times. LSD can get out of hand very quickly and is extremely, in my opinion, dependent on the group of people youreΒ  surrounding yourself with.Β 

Psilocybin, much much more wholesome experiences, more control and insane deep connections spiritually for me. On every level.Β 

Comfortable to go do anything on them too.Β

Absolutely. I hope in our lifetime its normalized to take magic mushrooms instead of pills for ptsd, depression, etc

I heard that while you trip, it helps to bring repressed memories to the forefront of your mind so people have an easier time bringing them up in a therapy setting and confronting them.

I can attest to this. I've had some of the most real conversations with others while on them. It's pretty wild.Β

My microdosing schedule = 0.1 (DRIED) grams every third day.
A few times a year, a proper trip is good for a mental "reset" (between 3 - 5 DRIED grams).Β

this is about my exact schedule at the moment. 2-3 times a week, I do a teaspoon of grounded up dried. Not sure what the weight is, but I get the body buzz, mental clarity and appreciation feel for about 2 hours.Β 

The good trips are usually a full 8th 100% resetting the mental hard drive 4-6 times a year.Β

What has it helped them with exactly? I'm also curious about this

There have been studies done that show that magic mushrooms (when done in a controlled and clinical environment) can help people to deal with, and even overcome PSTD, anxiety, and depression.Β

Funcoupons nailed it. Lot of extremely successful studies coming out on them.Β 

My experiences range from microdosing to heavy "hallucinogenic" doses.Β 

If I had to summarize mushrooms to anyone who was exploring trying them, it would be:

"You'll never find yourself more curious about yourself, your purpose, or the world but at total peace simultaneously"


They truly have been life changing for me. Helped me appreciate really everything in my life to a deeper and fuller extent.Β

my cousin has been microdosing shrooms. he is the vp for a cannabis company and has thoroughly enjoyed the escape. he says it has been enlightening.Β 
I take this feedback cautiously since he is someone that smokes week 5 - 7 times per day.Β

I totally can relate. I've actually been sober from cannabis for over a month due to life insurance.

I think mushroom biz will be insane in 5-10 years.Β

I've tried it. did it every three days for a few weeks. I don't think it helped me out too much with my work. Felt good though.

I've always found the body "buzz" (I prefer enlightenment), to be awesome. In turn, this has always loosened me up for the work day.Β

interesting. I don't know. I love mushrooms, but for a longer and more intense kind of trip. I just didn't get much out of the micro dosing in helping me with sales.

I havent in a long time but I used to trip and microdose some. I think that microdosing is the more positive experience of the two, though I honestly cant see it helping me in a sales role. Maybe in something like high level strategy/creative thinking but not sure about customer interaction.

Given my personality, I would be afraid that the microdosing would turn into macrodosing.Β  I know myself well enough that I would be like this is making super productive, I should do more and be more productive.Β  Then I would be in trouble.Β  Maybe try it on Friday just in case.
