SAFETY AND DOSING LEVELS
Psilocybin is non-toxic. Like cannabis, it is effectively impossible to die from a psilocybin overdose. A lethal dose would require eating several kilos of mushrooms at once. Dosages of psilocybe mushrooms over 1000mg can produce profound psychedelic effects. Because psilocybin interacts with the serotonin system, you should exercise caution when combining psilocybin with other serotonergic substances.
• MICRODOSE: At microdose levels between 100mg and 200mg, psilocybin will produce very little or no noticeable psychedelic effect. At these low doses, there will usually be feelings of reduced anxiety, peacefulness, and increased human connection.
• MID-LEVEL: A mid-level dose between 300mg and 800mg will typically produce noticeable psychedelic effects but low-intensity and manageable. If you are planning to do a high-level dose for the first time, it is recommended to try a mid-level dose first to get acclimated to the experience.
• HIGH-LEVEL: A high-level dose between 1000mg and 2000mg will usually produce a strong psychedelic breakthrough effect and is the best range for psychedelic therapy purposes.
• VERY HIGH: Doses over 3000mg will produce intense psychedelic effects with a higher potential for feelings of fear and anxiety, without increased therapeutic benefit.
While larger doses of psilocybe mushrooms are psychedelic and will definitely impair driving, microdoses should not affect your ability to drive or perform other tasks. However, we urge caution as you adjust your dosage to the appropriate level.
Below you will find some basic information about how to use mushroom microdoses for therapeutic purposes. These will typically be doses from 75mg to 200mg.
We will work with individual members to determine the proper dosage and regimen for maximum benefits.
Typically we will recommend taking a microdose two times a week, or once every three days. If you have a typical workweek, then we usually recommend taking your first weekly dose on a day off like Saturday and your second weekly dose on Tuesday.
The body quickly develops a tolerance for psilocybin. Taking psilocybin too often produces a rapidly diminishing effect. If you take a dose every day, the effect will be greatly reduced. This is why it is important to space out each dose by at least 2 days to ensure maximum benefits. We recommend the twice-weekly schedule as it is easy to remember and work into a routine.
Some people prefer to dose two days in a row and then have two days off. You can feel free to experiment to find what works best for you. We don’t recommend microdosing more than two days in a row due to the diminished effect from tolerance.
After the first few weeks you should have figured out what dose level is right for you. You can then continue to dose at that level. After a course of 12-16 weeks of doses you can consider taking a 1-2 week break and seeing how you feel.
At that point, if you wish to continue microdosing, you could then do another 12-16 week course, and then consider taking another 1-2 week break to evaluate.
MICRODOSE DOSE LEVEL
We usually recommend starting on a low dose of 50mg and then increase the dose to the appropriate level. Depending on body weight and other factors, the typical user will settle on a microdose level between 75mg and 150mg. But some people will require a lower or higher dose.
We recommend that you take 50mg in your first dose, then increase it by 25mg each time. So your second dose would be 75mg, your third would be 100mg, and so on.
Once you find a dose that is beneficial, you can stick with that. We encourage you to experiment with different dose levels to find what works for you.
We usually limit purchases to a 16 week supply, which is 32 doses.
We only provide high-dose mushroom products to members who have registered as medical users.
You can expect the experience to begin within an hour of ingesting mushrooms. The experience will peak at around 3 hours after dosing, and then continue in a reduced manner for another 3-4 hours.
When taking mushrooms for therapeutic purposes, it is best to have a trusted person with you. This person’s role is to be reassuring, to help you feel safe, and to offer guidance or feedback if needed. Do not take a psychedelic mushroom dose on your own.
If you are in a deep depressive state or crisis point, do not take a psychedelic level dose of mushrooms at that time.
If you are taking a psychedelic level mushroom dose for the first time, do it at a place and time where you will be safe and comfortable. You may be psychologically and physically vulnerable during a mushroom trip.
Psilocybin mushrooms are non-toxic. You are very unlikely to be physically harmed even by very large doses. The effects are mainly psychological.
For most people, doses over 3000mg are more likely to produce fear and negative emotions, without increase therapeutic benefit. Doses in the range of 1000mg to 2000mg are usually best for therapeutic purposes.
The best dose level can be affected by bodyweight and personal psychology. It is usually best to start with a mid-level dose and then try a higher-level dose the next time if desired.
It is best to separate your high-level doses by at least one week. This allows some time to integrate the experience.
