The Psychedelic Coffee: How microdosing is changing the way we look at healing.

Microdosing has been gaining attention exponentially over the past few years. From Silicon Valley Tech geniuses to UFC fighters, passing by all types of artists, it seems many successful people have adopted the practice. But What exactly is microdosing?

By definition, microdosing means exactly what it spells out. You take a micro or tiny dose of a drug, usually with the intention of reduced psychological effects. In psychedelics like LSD and mushrooms, microdosing consists of taking a dose so small that it is actually sub-perceptual. 

Dosages for Psilocybin and LSD when microdosing

This means you shouldn’t “perceive” or feel high at all, but the benefits will still be brought on by the small traces of the drug in your system. Think of it like taking CBD. It doesn’t get you high, but you do feel its benefits. Skeptics will often up placebo, but the amount of research and anecdotal experiences for microdosing psychedelics speak for itself.

The process has been described as taking a psychedelic coffee a few times a week. Just like coffee, microdosing can help you with your day-to-day existence in quite a few ways, without the negative side-effects.

On another note, microdosing mushrooms can bring heightened creativity, improved focus and cognition, increased energy and smoother of social skills. When taken for a prolonged amount of time, it has also been linked to the treatment of depression and addiction the same way a full-dose trip would. 

How to microdose

Dosing is everything when it comes to getting the most out of the experience. Psychedelics are powerful drugs on their own, which require very little to get you high. For example, when microdosing LSD, a variation in 5 Ugs (Micrograms) can completely ruin your day and leave you anxious and jittery.

Mushrooms are a little more permissive, but you don’t want to take too much when microdosing. The thing about microdosing is that everybody will react differently. Everybody has a “sweet spot,” where they feel the benefits but don’t feel high. Not only is this dosage unique to each individual, but it takes time(trial and error) to find it, and it can change as your tolerance grows.

We recommend starting at 0.35 and going up or down from there. If you feel a little too zoned out, happy, philosophical or your head is in the clouds, you’ve taken too much. This feeling can be amazing for things like a hike or time with the family but can be overwhelming and increase anxiety at stressful places like work.

Keep a journal or notes on your phone and write down every day you dose, how much you dosed, how you felt the same day and how you felt the next day. Other factors such as what you ate and how you slept can come into play here, and that is why it takes trial and error to find a routine that works for you.

We also recommend doing trial and error on your days off at first so that if you take too much, you don’t have a mini-trip in front of your boss. Once you’ve found your sweet spot, you can begin a program.

MICRODOSING SHOULD NOT BE USED YEAR-LONG. We do not know the long-term effects of microdosing on the brain yet, so you should not over-do it just like any other substance. Set yourself a timeframe(1-3 months) and microdose for that time. Take a break for the same amount of time and see if you need more.

It would be best if you did not change anything in your weekly schedule to accommodate microdosing. It should just be a part of your morning routine, but not every morning. We recommend following Dr. James Fadiman’s program of 1 day on, two days off. Dr. Fadiman, a psychologist, is a celebrity in the psychedelics world and is respected worldwide for his extensive research in the field of psychedelics and the human brain.

His regiment starts with a dose day, where you will ingest your microdose and go on with your day. The next day will be reserved for introspection—sort of thinking about yesterday and realizations/changes you made. You may also feel residual effects from the day before and try to notice those too. You will not microdose on the second nor the third day. And then restart the cycle, with an extra day off the second time around.
