Recently, the use of psychedelics for therapeutic purposes is a hot topic. Magic mushrooms and even cannabis microdosing are today regarded as promising ways to use these substances to treat a variety of medical conditions and improve quality of life.
What is Microdose?
The idea behind microdosing is to take psychedelics in minimal doses to avoid tripping, and the effects of psychedelics are slightly noticeable. So, instead of consuming a few grams of mushrooms, you only consume one tenth, for example 0.2 grams, each time, so you rarely feel like you’re consuming nothing.
With microdosing, you can continue your daily routine, but experience the beneficial effects of psychedelics, such as mood improvement, creativity, and clarity. Recent scientific studies suggest that microdosing may also help treat mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
Science and Positive Effects of Microdosing:
Interestingly, the positive effects of microdosing are not only subjective, but microdosing only brings happiness. Recent studies have shown that microdosing causes beneficial changes in our brain and body.
Several 2013 studies in mice have shown that microdosing psilocybin promotes an effect known as neurogenesis. Growth of new neurons in the brain. Neurogenesis is associated with improved energy levels, mood, and cognitive function. Another study published in the Journal of the Royal Society suggests that microdosing psilocybin can increase creativity.
In a microdose psychedelic study that examined the effects on personality, mental health, and creativity differences, the group of subjects who received microdose were in these areas more than the control group who did not use psychedelic. It turned out to be excellent. Researchers conclude that their findings provide “the first promising evidence to support controlled experimental studies” for microdosing and its potential benefits.
Reasons of Popularity of Microdosing Magic Mushrooms:
Magic mushrooms are popular for microdosing for several reasons. Compared to LSD and some other psychedelics, the microdosing effect of magic mushrooms is generally mild and short-lived. This makes it easier to take and the effects do not interfere with your sleep schedule. Another advantage of mushrooms is that they can be easily cultivated at home.
An easy way to get a small amount of magic mushrooms may be to eat a small amount, but this method of administration is not very accurate. In addition, different parts of the fungus, such as hats and feet, contain different amounts of psychotropic psilocybin, making accurate doses difficult.
