Microdosing FAQ

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.

Psilocybin is one of the safest substances you can find and much safer than alcohol, especially when taken in microdoses. Microdosing is proven to be safe and non-habit forming. We advise that you not exceed the recommended dosage and frequency. This is because you don’t want to extend beyond your limits and potentially experience some unwanted side effects, such as temporary loss of body function and/or muscle weakness. Keep in mind experiences like that are not common and will go away in a few hours. Just be sure to follow the dosage instructions.

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 Do not microdose daily as you can build up a tolerance.

Most people begin to enjoy a euphoric sensation. Your anxiety dissipates and you feel more connected to the world around. But it won’t be dramatic. The effects of microdosing are subtle. Sometimes, you may not even notice until after the fact when you look back on it. You might find that you were more aware, a bit more creative, and a heightened emotional state.

It all depends. Generally, a microdose will last somewhere around 4 to 5 hours. It may be less if you eat a meal shortly after.

No. Microdosing psilocybin mushrooms is not known to be addictive. To be safe, follow the recommended dosing patterns and take 2-3 days off per week so no habit-forming behaviors emerge.

Possibly, yes. Exciting studies are ongoing to prove that psilocybin can helppeople 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.

Side effects should only be experienced if you consume far more than a microdose of psilocybin. Even then, the side effects will be minor and non-threatening.  While a microdose should trigger feelings of positivity, taking too much may cause feelings of discomfort, such as:

  • Increased anxiety
  • Hallucinations
  • Worsened mood
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Paranoia
  • Temporary drug-induced psychosis

These occurrences are rare, and even so, should not be severe or last more than a few hours.

Mushrooms will not show up on most routine drug tests. However, specialized tests may detect psilocybin. Traces of psilocybin mushrooms should not be detectable in your system after 24 hours.

Yes! All Mind Mend products have been lab-tested but as mentioned above, must be consumed responsibly.

If by “safe” you mean “legal,” then the answer is yes, sort of. Psilocybin mushroom dispensaries operate in a bit of a grey area, just like medical marijuana dispensaries once did. But since mushrooms are a low schedule and we’re only talking about microdoses, you needn’t worry.

Unfortunately, the necessary research has not been conducted to give anyone solid advice about the safety of taking psychedelics with all prescription medications. However, it is known that antidepressants can significantly reduce the effects of microdosing.  There is also evidence that combining psilocybin with lithium can lead to heart problems. Even though no dangerous interactions have been reported, we certainly do not recommend that you microdose in combination with any other recreational drugs, including alcohol.  To be extra safe, make sure you check with your physician before microdosing psilocybin mushrooms.

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.

That’s a personal decision. In general, the best way to consume shrooms is via non-shroom forms. We have several different products for you to choose from, including capsules, teas, and gummies. This is because mushrooms taste bitter often the strength is hard to predict. Microdosing a reliable product ensures that the dose has been measured and is safe. It will just be like taking your morning vitamins.


Capsules also remove the taste of mushrooms and can be a great option for beginners because there is no math or guesswork involved. The capsules are pre-measured, so you can simply take one in the morning and go about your day. It’s a convenient, easy way to microdose.


If you have difficulty with the taste of mushrooms, gummies offer another great option. Gummies are the best-tasting option in our product line and deliver fast-acting results.

Capsules are an excellent choice for beginners because they are pre-measured. You simply take one in the morning (every 2-3 days) and go about your day. It’s a convenient, easy way to microdose.


Many people enjoy their shrooms in tea form. We offer four different types. Each type is naturally flavored and we add honey crystals for sweetness. Each teabag contains 500 mg of psilocybin, making them perfect for beginners.

Safety and Precautions

Anyone that is currently taking lithium or tramadol is strongly discouraged from using psilocybin products as it may lead to heart problems, seizures, and or other serious health complications. If you are experiencing deep grief or a crisis point in your life, we recommend against a high dose of magic mushrooms. This increases the likelihood of a challenging experience.

Do not attempt to swim, climb, drive, or engage in high-risk activities when taking higher psychedelic doses. Keep out of reach from children and pets.
