Microdosing vs Macrodosing
Microdosing is the practice of taking low doses of psychedelics on a weekly schedule for the benefit of its therapeutic effects, without the hallucinogenic experience. Microdosing has become a popular way to enhance job performance, improving cognitive abilities, creativity, and the ability to socially interact. Weekly schedules are important when microdosing to avoid building up a tolerance to psilocybin.
Macrodosing describes the ingestion of a large enough dose of a hallucinogen to have a profound psychedelic experience. This larger dose has also been considered recreational, but the sole purpose is not always to have fun. Macrodosing can also serve to heal and provide therapy. Macrodosing, if conducted in a therapeutic setting, can be an effective way to change the perspective of the patient.
The Practice of Microdosing
There are both short-term and long-term benefits that people report from microdosing. There are several positive effects that hallucinogens have on social awareness, concentration and focus, creativity, energy, mood, and feeling more open and connected to others. Microdosing provides all this without the hallucinations that would inhibit work productivity.
As it is critically important to microdose precise amounts of psilocybin, we recommend the use of capsules, powder, or isolated psilocybin liquid. Magic mushrooms, being organic, can vary in potency, so exact measurements are a bit more problematic than LSD, and results can vary.
There are basically two reasons that people microdose:
- To achieve more frequent and more intense feelings of euphoria, focus, empathy, and creativity.
- To treat the undesirable feelings associated with mental health, like anxiety, depression, PTSD, and OCD.
The weekly schedule to manage your microdosing levels efficiently and effectively is critical, so that the psilocybin can have the optimum effect. It is possible to build a tolerance, so weekly schedules include days that you are not consuming any psilocybin. If you take tiny amounts of psilocybin over time, you can achieve the appropriate effect.
The Macrodosing Experience
By taking larger doses of a psychedelic substance in a therapeutic setting, it allows the patient to set the intention and to integrate the psychedelic experience. For conditions such as depression, anxiety, addiction, end-of-life care, traumatic brain injury, and PTSD, setting the intention allows the patient to integrate the feelings that arise during the experience. By practicing integration, the user finds meaning and receives support on how to implement the experience and brings a new perspective into their life. Preparation is critical when macrodosing to understand what and how to utilize the experience in advance.
Once the patient has “returned from the journey.” Time should be spent on integration therapy. The patient’s experience should be discussed to effectively integrate those experiences into their life to increase peace and harmony.
If macrodosing is conducted in concert with nurturing therapy, it is an efficient way to modify the patient’s perception and attitude and alter their direction.
