  • Enhanced creativity
  • Increased social connection
  • More energy
  • Higher mental performance
  • Better recovery from chronic drug use
  • Reduced anxiety and improved mood

That’s exactly what we love to hear.

Now, let’s dig into the nitty-gritty of mushroom dosage.

Choosing a Dosing Schedule

Think of microdosing magic mushrooms like taking a supplement. You don’t feel the full effects of shrooms but just enough to aid your day-to-day living.

However, things can really intensify when you take to a high dose like the megadose.

But before we get there, let’s learn how to correctly use the dosing schedule recommended by Dr. Fadiman.

Dr. Fadiman’s Micro Dosing Method

Dr. James Fadiman recommends microdosing once every 3 days to avoid developing a tolerance.

Dosage Recommendations
Mind Mend | Dosage Recommendations

To get the utmost benefit from microdosing, he recommends sticking to a plan.

Here’s an idea of a 4-week microdosing schedule:

  1. Week 1: Mon-Thu-Sun
  2. Week 2: Wed-Sat
  3. Week 3: Tue-Fri
  4. Week 4: Mon-Thu-Sun

He says,

The first day you feel great. The second day you would feel half of that. And the third day you won’t feel anything.”

Now, you must be wondering, “Are magic mushrooms addictive?”

Well, this graph clears that up for you.

As you can see, magic mushroom users are less likely to build up a tolerance.

But to ensure this remains the case, make sure you stick to a schedule like Dr. Fadiman’s.

Now that you’ve got a credible dosing schedule, here’s a detailed list of the types of psilocybin doses and their effects.

Choosing Your Psilocybin Mushroom Dose

Microdose: 0.05 – 0.25g

Perfect for first-time users, a microdose can be easily integrated into your daily life.

This dosage is sub-perceptual so it may not feel like a typical trip. But don’t let that fool you.

With a microdose, our magic mushrooms are hard at work behind the scenes, doing a host of powerful things.


  • Increased motivation
  • Clarity of mind
  • Enhanced memory
  • Enhanced mood
  • Stress management
  • Creativity and flow
  • Inner peace

Potential Negatives

  • Amplifies a pre-existing negative mood
  • Increased neuroticism
  • May trigger manic states

Disclaimer: Psychedelics like magic mushrooms are not recommended for people living with disorders like bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

These disorders have psychotic features that may be heightened to the point of unsafety for users.

Despite this, you can rest assured that magic mushrooms were deemed the safest recreational drugs in 2017.

This was in terms of needing to seek emergency medical treatment. In fact, out of almost 10,000 magic mushroom consumers that year, only 0.2% reported seeking emergency medical treatment.

Macrodosing magic mushrooms
Why Microdose

Low Dose: 0.25 – 0.75g

Think of a low dose as a more noticeable version of a microdose.

But depending on the user, it may have similar effects to a microdose or slightly surpass them.

Below you can see the effects of low dosage.


  • More enjoyment of daily life
  • Mindfulness
  • Self-reflection
  • Flow states and creativity
  • A few mild visuals, if any
  • Stress management
  • Heightened sensory awareness
  • Help with the daily management of PTSD, ADHD, and depression

Potential Negatives

  • May trigger and/or amplify manic episodes
  • Difficulty concentrating on and completing certain tasks
  • Anxiety or irritability
  • Amplifies your current mood, whether positive or negative

Macrodose: 0.5 – 1.5g

This mushroom dosage is also referred to as a “museum dose”.

Why, you may ask?

Well, because it allows you to comfortably sit in public spaces, like a museum. (Who would’ve thought?)

A macrodose trip has more pronounced effects without turning into a full psychedelic experience.

Expect euphoria along with a heightened appreciation for music and art (it is a museum dose, after all).

Here are some more effects of this mushroom dosage.


  • Euphoria
  • Empathy
  • Chattier
  • Deep introspection
  • Heightened sensory awareness
  • Deeper appreciation for music and art
  • Distorted perception of time
  • Dilated pupils
  • Help with the daily management of PTSD, ADHD, and depression

Potential Negatives

  • Amplifies your pre-existing mood, whether positive or negative
  • Difficulty concentrating and completing tasks
  • May trigger a manic state
  • Restlessness in social situations

Moderate Dose: 0.2 – 3.5g

Now, with this dose, expect to experience a true psychedelic trip.

We’re talking everything from distortions of shapes, colors, time, and depth to synesthesia.

Synesthesia is a state where one sense transfers into another during a psychedelic experience. For example, “seeing” music.

However, not to worry, you’ll still be aware of your environment. Just that things will be a bit more colorful than usual.

In fact, first-time shroom users may want a “sitter” for this mushroom dosage.

Think of a sitter as a sober person with psychedelic experience. Their job is to guide newbies through the new sensations of a trip.

But once those initial jitters are out of the way, many users venture to a quiet park to experience nature in a new way.


  • “The giggles”
  • Life-changing introspective insights
  • Creativity and new ideas
  • Heightened sensory awareness and appreciation for music and art
  • Greater amusement or interest in your environment
  • Dilated pupils

Potential Negatives:

  • Yawning – psilocybin can induce drowsiness similar to marijuana
  • Disorientation due to changes in visual perception
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Dizziness and nausea
  • May trigger manic episodes
  • May worsen a pre-existing negative mood

Started microdosing for school since I have trouble concentrating and like wow this stuff rocks. Feel like I can stay focused for hours at a time and have random spurts of ideas that I feel I normally wouldn’t. It’s been life-changing!”- TJ Cannon

Megadose: 5g+

For the experienced psychonaut, a megadose takes tripping magic mushrooms to a whole other level.

Honestly, megadoses are way more disorienting because users lose a sense of time and space (their environment).

But it can also be one of the most mentally clarifying experiences.

We recommend you have a sitter present for this mushroom dosage.

Not only that but also remain in a quiet, calm, controlled setting. And don’t forget to stock up on food and water for maximum comfort during your trip.


  • Mystical experience and feeling of spiritual connection and euphoria
  • Deep and life-changing insights upon self-reflection
  • Ego dissolution — a feeling of disconnect from the self
  • Strong visuals; both open- and closed-eye
  • Synesthesia

Potential Negatives

  • May worsen a pre-existing negative mood
  • Disorientation due to changes in visual perception
  • Difficulty controlling motor functions
  • Dizziness and nausea
  • May trigger psychotic episodes
Macrodosing magic mushrooms
Why Macrodose

Let’s bring these effects and potential negatives to life. Here are the real experiences of users in one study on microdosing psychedelics.

Feel the Difference

Choose harm-reduction.

Avoid the risk of finding, grinding, and microdosing your own shrooms. Or worse still, purchasing them from a sketchy site.

Especially if you’re a first-time user.

We don’t want you to miss out on the massive benefits that come with microdosing magic mushrooms.

That’s why we’ve done all the heavy lifting for you.

Amazing customer service. Lots of crap out there when buying magic mushrooms online. You can tell this site is run by professionals and they care about their product. 5 stars!” – B.S

And no, you don’t have to go it alone. We’re here to help you understand the power of magic mushrooms and how it can work for you individually.
