The Biochemistry of Microdosing

The more you understand how this hallucinogen works in your body, the wiser you’ll be about introducing it into your body’s chemistry. The first thing to know is that when it comes to problem-solving, decision making, processing information, feeling contentment, feeling motivated and being able to focus, serotonin is one of our most important neurotransmitters. This is a chemical messenger that affects how we think, feel, and act in our brain. When your serotonin levels are low, you feel sluggish, you find it difficult to concentrate, and most likely you also feel depressed. Psilocybin, the psychoactive hallucinogenic compound found in magic mushrooms, is very similar to serotonin, and so, it interacts with the same brain receptors. When psilocybin is microdosed, it matches the amount of serotonin that the brain releases to enhance mood, and relieve anxiety, as well as improve cognitive brain functions like memory, information processing, and critical problem-solving. If you consume magic mushrooms with the intent to trip, it is essentially like raising your serotonin levels to an extreme level. This results in euphoria, a lack of anxiety, and a significant increase in empathy. Essentially a magic mushroom trip.

If you approach microdosing properly, you can decrease your anxiety, elevate your mood, and improve your interpersonal interactions. Zoomies can help you make that happen with the most reliable shrooms delivery available.

Microdosing Magic Mushrooms

Microdosing hallucinogens like psilocybin, the naturally occurring compound in magic mushrooms, has become increasingly popular in recent years. Silicon Valley start-up technology workers and creatives have become particularly attracted to the practice of microdosing, almost to the point of it becoming a trend or fad. The reason for its popularity among Silicon Valley workers is because Microdosing allows them to experience the positive effects that the hallucinogen has on social awareness (especially teammates) to the point of empathy. It also affects concentration, creativity, and mood. Microdosing provides all this without the hallucinations that would inhibit work productivity. When the research was conducted, results revealed the benefits of small doses of hallucinogenic substances like psilocybin and LSD, as they pertain to productivity and creative thinking. Once the data became available, the use of hallucinogens among these high-tech start-up workers began to take off.

We at Zoomies recommend microdosing magic mushrooms through the use of capsules, powder, or isolated psilocybin liquid. It is important to be able to microdose a precise amount of psilocybin. Since psilocybin content differs slightly from shroom to shroom, unlike a dose of LSD, it is often difficult to measure precisely each time by consuming dried mushrooms, and results can vary. Taking 0.10 grams is typically no big deal, but if taking 0.10 grams produces a mild hallucinogenic effect, that becomes unproductive and so, undesirable.

You’ll need a weekly schedule to manage your microdosing levels efficiently and effectively. It is possible to build a tolerance level to psilocybin, so take tiny amounts of it over some time to make sure you achieve the appropriate effect. This requires a bit of planning. Starting on day one, take your first microdose in the morning to achieve your initial effects. On day 2, do not microdose at all, you’ll be experiencing the after-effects from the day before. Also, do not microdose on day 3, so that you can experience an entire day with no effects at all. Then microdose again on day 4 in the morning.
