What is Microdosing?
In recent years the concept of Microdosing psychedelics has become increasingly recognized. Microdosing refers to the act of taking tiny portions of a psychedelic substance. The practice of microdosing can be done using various substances such as; Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), Psilocybin (“magic” mushrooms), Cannabis, etc.
While there are limited scientific studies done on the effects microdosing can have, there are countless anecdotal studies that prove how microdosing can have a positive impact on users.
Benefits may vary depending on which psychedelic a user is taking and how much they are microdosing with. Overall benefits include:
- Better Focus
- Higher Levels of Creativity
- Relief From Depression
- More energy
- Lessens Anxiety
- Emotional Openness
- Relief From Menstrual Pain

How Much is a Microdose?
The portion size of a microdose can vary from 1/10 to 1/20 of a normal dose. This will allow the user to feel the positive benefits gained from these substances such as increased energy and creativity, without any extreme negative feelings such as hallucinations and sensory shifts.
