General Questions

What is microdosing?

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 and have integrated microdosing into their normal routines. These benefits may include higher productivity, increased energy and focus and boosted creativity, in addition to lower anxiety, stress, depression, and more.

Is a microdose safe to consume?

Psilocybin is one of the safest substances you can find, much safer than alcohol, especially when taken in micro doses. Microdosing is proven to be safe and non-threatening. 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 temporarily losing bodily function and/or muscle weakness. Keep in mind experiences like that are not common and will go away in a few hours. Follow the dosage instructions and you’re in the clear! 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 micro doses, you needn’t worry.

How do I microdose? 

When it comes to microdosing, we recommend starting with a slightly higher dose at a time when things are low stakes (like, say, a weekend), to guarantee a noticeable effect. Then, you can slowly work your way back to the lowest dose possible while still feeling the desired outcomes.  Once you get into a routine, the recommended schedule is to microdose in the morning and take two or three days off in 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.

How do I know if microdosing is working?

Oh… you’ll know. If you begin to enjoy a euphoric sensation. If your anxiety dissipates and you feel more connected to the world around you and more aware of your space within it, yeah, you’re riding the wave.  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. But no, you won’t be tripping.

How long does microdosing last?

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

Is microdosing addictive?

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.

Can psilocybin help with addiction?

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 treatmen

What are the side effects of microdosing?

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

Can psilocybin be detected on a drug test?

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

Are Mind Mend mushrooms safe and are they lab tested?

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

I’m taking a prescription. Can I microdose?

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.

How long does it take shrooms to kick in?

You will typically start experiencing effects in 30 minutes or so. If not? Just wait. Or you didn’t take enough.   

What is the best way to take mushrooms?

That’s up to you to decide! In general, the best way to consume shrooms is via non-shroom forms. We have several different products for you to choose from, including tinctures, capsules, and gummies. This is because mushrooms taste pretty bad. They can also be uncomfortable and the strength is hard to predict. Microdosing a reliable product ensures that the dose has been measured and is safe, and also won’t taste disgusting. It will just be like taking your morning vitamins. 

Tinctures

Tinctures put mushrooms into liquid form. The oil can be mixed into your morning coffee or tea or even taken directly with the dropper. This is the most fast-acting method so you’ll feel the benefits quickly. 

Capsules

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. 

Gummies

If you have difficulty ingesting capsules, gummies offer another great option. Gummies are the best-tasting option in our product line and also deliver fast-acting results.
