Microdose

I haven’t been writing much lately as I’ve been working on myself (a lot) and it hasn’t really been on my mind. That said, I think I’d like to get back to jotting down my thoughts again. For instance, I microdosed psilocybin (mushrooms) for the first time two days ago.

I took a quarter gram which was enough to just barely notice a change. That’s the goal of micrdosing. You take just enough to get an effect but no more. And you do that once every three or four days. Last night, I was at a Refuge Recovery meeting and noticed that I felt more content than I have in a very long time. I can’t actually know if the two things are related but it is possible. I intend to microdose again in two days time and talk to my therapist and plant medicine specialist about it. Who knows? If throwing back a tiny amount of mushrooms twice a week can help, I’m willing to try that out.

I have a friend with a lot of similar issues to my own (heroin, ED, etc) and she has gotten a lot of benefit from microdosing. It’s actually been my conversations with her that prompted me to look into it for myself. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  1. Micro-dosing with shrooms is def something I’ve heard about for years. A reddit user once sent me a huge list of vitamins, minerals, plants, etc to try in order to replace or support dopamine/serotonin productions and receptors. One of my exes swears by micro-dosing to help with depression.
    Glad to see your words again.

    1. Thanks. I’m most likely going to start doing it regularly. I’ve only heard good things about it (though I’m sure there are drawbacks). How have you been?
