Taking Psilocybin at a Macro-dosage, usually defined as between 2 and 5 grams of dried psilocybin mushrooms, has been shown by several scientifically meticulous studies to reliably elicit spiritual, mystical, or transcendent experiences that have lasting positive effect on the subject, with as little as one (large) dose.
In the modern day psilocybin is often used with one of two intents; recreational use or therapeutic use. When administered in a therapeutic setting it has proven to be highly effective in lowering anxiety, treating depression, breaking addiction, and alleviating the symptoms of PTSD.
Studies at Harvard, Stanford, Yale, University of Toronto, Johns Hopkins University, and many other educational/research institutions have proven psilocybin’s efficacy in treating the aforementioned psychological conditions. These studies also corroborated beliefs that indigenous peoples have held into antiquity – that in addition to its medical applications, psilocybin also has the potential to radically improve the well-being, happiness, and overall mental state of ‘healthy’ individuals.
Based on the results of these studies, the U.S. Federal Drug Administration has also recently given psilocybin a “Breakthrough Therapy” designation, which is granted only when preliminary evidence suggests the drug may be an enormous improvement over already available therapy. This designation will fast-track many potential psilocybin treatments through clinical trials, which are underway. Health Canada has also awarded multiple licenses for the research and development of a psilocybin treatment.
1-2 hours after ingesting a micro-dose some subjects report noticing an increase in creativity and a more positive mood/outlook. Many users also find improved focus and energy level. It can mitigate the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD for some patients, however has also been reported to induce anxiety in others. Many purport its ability to increase empathy and ‘sociability’ as well, acting in a similar fashion to having a drink as social lubricant. The first time you microdose you may feel slightly giddy or intoxicated, however the body quickly builds tolerance to Psilocybin, and noticeable psychotropic effects are not usually felt after the first dose. Microdosing offers the neurologic and psychologic of psilocybin, without intoxication. You should not have to alter your daily routine in order to microdose!
