Frequently Asked Questions
Safety and Precautions
- Individuals with a personal or family history of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Psychedelics can potentially exacerbate these conditions.
- Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. The effects of psychedelics on fetal development and infants are poorly understood, making it safer to avoid use.
If you’re on these medications, consider reducing or discontinuing their use while microdosing.
SSRIs or SNRIs can reduce the effects of microdosing. Some individuals on these medications may need to increase their microdose, potentially to 250-350mg. Start with a lower dose and gradually adjust to find the right balance and minimize adverse reactions.
Do not combine our products with lithium or tramadol. These combinations can cause serious health issues, such as heart problems and seizures.
If you’re on statins, avoid our Focus Shrooms capsules due to their Niacin content, which could interact negatively with statins.
Avoid mixing alcohol with psilocybin. This can not only diminish the benefits of psilocybin but also increase the likelihood of experiencing a bad trip.
Refrain from high-risk activities like swimming, climbing, or driving when under the influence of higher psychedelic doses. Psilocybin can impair motor skills and judgment.
Keep our products out of reach of children and pets to prevent accidental ingestion.
Psilocybin is one of the safest substances you can find and much safer than alcohol, especially when taken in microdoses. Psilocybin is proven to be safe and non-habit forming.

Microdosing is the practice of consuming tiny doses of psychedelic drugs (in our case, psilocybin mushrooms). In pharmaceutical terms, microdosing refers to the minimum effective dose, which is typically between 1/10 and 1/2 the average amount.
Users consume the lowest possible dose to achieve the desired effects without triggering any negative side effects. These small doses typically do not produce the hallucinatory or psychedelic effects associated with mushrooms, meaning the dose is “sub-perceptual.”
Users microdose for a wide variety of psychological and physical benefits. These benefits may include higher productivity, increased energy and focus and boosted creativity, in addition to lower anxiety, stress, depression, and more.
When it comes to microdosing, we recommend starting at a very lose dose, preferably on a weekend, to see how your body responds.
Two days later, dose again based on your initial experience, increasing very slowly. Once you get into a routine, the recommended schedule is to microdose in the morning and take two or three days off between doses.
We’ve got a full breakdown on dosing that you can read here mindmend.co/dosing/. Do not microdose daily as you can build up a tolerance.
Establishing the right dosage for microdosing involves a process of trial and adjustment. Follow these steps:
- Start taking the product on a day when you have no obligations. This allows you to understand how your body responds to the substance without any external pressure.
- Evaluate your body’s reaction. If the response is too intense, reduce the dose by breaking the capsule in half.
- The goal of microdosing is to enhance clarity and focus, similar to the effects of a good cup of coffee but without the anxiety. You’re aiming for subtle effects that improve your day-to-day functioning rather than a full psychedelic experience.
- Adjust your dose as necessary based on your observations. Once you’re comfortable with the effects, establish a regular microdosing protocol.
- Continue taking the product on days without obligations until you’re confident that the effects are predictable and manageable.
Emotional surfacing during microdosing is can happen from time to time depending on the person. Here’s a concise guide on how to handle it:
1. Stay Calm: Anxiety or strong emotions can be part of your microdosing journey.
2. Breathe: Use focused breathing to manage these feelings.
3. Acknowledge Your Feelings: Embrace and explore these emotions rather than resisting them.
4. Adjust Your Dose: If feelings are overwhelming, consider halving your next dose.
This process can be transformative and part of your personal healing journey. If feelings persist, reach out to a therapist. Also, consider joining our Facebook community for shared experiences and support.
Possibly, yes. Exciting studies are ongoing to prove that psilocybin can help people quit smoking. There is reason to believe that psilocybin may have the potential to treat addiction to alcohol, cocaine, and other substances. Plenty of research is currently in the works, and psilocybin does indeed show the potential to offer an alternative option for addiction treatment.
Mind Mend’s products are safe, with a focus on quality.
We small-batch farm our dried mushrooms without pesticides, as nature intended.
Our gummies must undergo lab testing to guarantee psilocybin content and a predictable experience every time.
You will typically start experiencing effects in 30 minutes or so. If you don’t feel anything, wait over an hour before using any more mushroom products.
Mind Mend offers magic mushrooms in various forms: capsules, gummies, and dried mushrooms.
Capsules provide exact dosing, ideal for those wanting precision and convenience.
Gummies are flavorful and mask the mushroom’s natural bitterness, a good option for taste-conscious individuals.
Dried mushrooms offer a traditional form for those who don’t mind the taste and want to experiment with larger doses.
The best choice is based on your taste, lifestyle, and microdosing and macrodosing goals.
Macrodosing refers to taking larger doses of psilocybin to induce a full psychedelic experience.
While microdosing focuses on subtle changes to enhance everyday functioning, macrodosing can provide profound, introspective experiences that may be beneficial for those seeking deep personal growth or spiritual exploration.
Macrodosing can catalyze intense emotional release and insight, which may be useful for individuals interested in addressing personal challenges, exploring their consciousness, or undergoing therapeutic processes.
Set and setting are critical. Ensure you’re in a positive mindset and comfortable, secure environment. Having a sober and trustworthy trip-sitter is recommended.
Fasting for a few hours can help reduce the nausea some people experience.
A macrodose generally ranges from 1 to 5 grams of dried psilocybin mushrooms, depending on individual tolerance, body weight, and the desired intensity of the experience. First-time users are advised to start on the lower end of the scale and gradually adjust based on their reactions. Always prioritize safety and caution.
Macrodosing can lead to intense experiences, including visual and auditory hallucinations, deep introspection, emotional amplification, and altered perception of time and space.
Generally, the effects of a macrodose start to be noticeable within 20-60 minutes after consumption and can last between 4 to 6 hours, depending on individual metabolism and the dosage taken.
Having a sober sitter can help you navigate challenging experiences. Techniques like deep breathing, changing the environment, or focusing on calming music may also help.
Integration is an essential part of the psychedelic journey. Journaling, nature walks, art, or discussing the experience with a trusted individual or professional can be beneficial.

µg is an abbreviation for microgram. A microgram is a unit of mass in the metric system and is equal to one-millionth of a gram (1 µg = 0.000001 gram). LSD is so potent you only need a small amount to feel its effects; that’s why it’s measured in µg.
Whereas magic mushrooms are measured in milligrams or mg.
Microdosing protocols for microdosing psilocybin and LSD are the same. Take 5µg – 20µg every 2 to 3 days or 5 days on and 2 days off. Test what works for you. *Note: dosages for shrooms and LSD are measured in different units.
It takes approximately takes 15 – 25 minutes until you begin to experience the effects of LSD.
