Mushrooms aren't addictive. At least not on the mushroom's side of things.

 

I did do it daily a few years ago for a while, eventually I just tolerated it and it had no notable effect at that dosage. I also got headaches, probably because I wasn't having a rest period.

 

The best way to micro-dose for me is 4-5 days on, the rest off. Of course this is preference and can be adjusted.

A friend of mine took daily doses for a couple of years. He was unclear on the concept of "micro" dosing, so they were more like low doses. Mostly he wouldn't feel any effects after the first few days but sometimes he'd take extra so he got a noticeable effect and sometimes the regular doses would hit harder than usual (these were all taken in the form of my blended honey recipe so variation of potency between doses was minimized).

 

The net result was that he was eventually able to get a handle on his chronic depression, which allowed him to finally quit drinking insane amounts of liquor, which in turn allowed him to preserve his then-rocky marriage. He eventually stopped dosing but never went back to alcohol (he quit it all, not just liquor).

Interesting topic, mushrooms aren't addictive , at least in a physical dependence kind of way, they are the least problem causing, because they are problem solvers if taken with the intent to do so. I have come to believe in the Spiritual nature of these fungi, they know if your full of shit, or whether you actually want to get better for yourself as well as others. They are medicinal, and if taken for this reason, they will make sure you have fun along the way....until next time....HOLLA

If it's higher than ~0.1 gram then it's not a "micro" dose, though that's somewhat arbitrary.

 

The factor that makes the difference between a microdose and a low dose is whether or not you can detect any effects from the fungi; if you can then it wasn't a microdose.

For me a daily micro-dosing of mushrooms (0.05 to 0.3 gm) tends to build over time.  If I micro-dose every day for 3 days in a row, by the 3rd or forth day I’ll be hallucinating just a bit and that’s when I realize that I need to skip a few days.

 

The one thing that I like to do every day is Kratom and I only partake in 4 to 6 zero size capsules a day.  For me Kratom (in moderation) not only helps with arthritis, but also gives me a state of ‘mellow’ that I find useful and pleasant.  Between micro-dosing, Kratom and moderate Alcohol use, I’m a pretty happy and productive and exercising more than ever.  If I had one of the three that I will drop it would be Alcohol.

When microdosing and you set up a schedule of 3/4 are the days in a row? I’m wanting to microdosing but not on the days I work.

I've been micro-doing for a few weeks. I take 0.2g everyday for 5 days then two days off. I like to take it in the morning with my other fungi supplements which right now are Stamets 7.

 

I've noticed it help to uplift my mood and increases my interest in whatever I'm doing. Also helps with my morning commute through LA traffic, just takes the edge off a bit. i'm very happy with how its been going.

 

If you're gonna do it Id suggest trying it on weekend first and see how it goes. You may need to adjust your dose. I also would say that you will get used to it more or less. Maybe by building a tolerance but also you kinda jus get the hang of how it feels and can do anything you would normally do without worry.

MDing seems to be something like me...just a better version of me. I’ve found that MDing allows the real me (not my ego) be in the drivers seat.

I do think my hand eye coordination is off slightly when MDing anyone else have this experience?

To me it feels a lot like this:

My schedule is typically 1:3 i.e. I'll do 0.08 to 0.2 every third day.  If you do <0.1gm, then work should not be an issue for most jobs.... ah, but then it depends on the quality of the mushroom too.  So know your mushroom and adjust accordingly.  If you work where safety could be an issue  (like you're the board operator for a nuclear plant), then I would suggest avoiding altogether.  Cheers

I suppose that the above stated doses are considered to be in DRY weight!

I forget where I read it, but somewhere there is an article or review of the Stamets products... I think what I read is that some of his supplements, maybe all of them, have been made from the mycelium of the associated mushroom rather than fruiting them out prior to manufacturing the products... I maybe ignorant in that perhaps this is the best way to prepare mushroom based supplements but I would find that surprising. I seem to remember reading that the author agreed with my assessment.

I think this is a good assessment of what one can gain from microdosing... I have not experimented with microdosing mushrooms but have microdosed other hallucinogens... I feel similarly to Oneyedraven in that it allows me to be me with out having to go over the ego speed bump... Occasionally, for me at least, the speed bump can turn into a speed HUMP and I hate those bastards!! Having hallucinogens guide me around the speed bump rather than over it has proven to relieve stress...

 

I have also had good success achieving similar results while dosing K... This has been less of a microdose and more of me doing it for a coupled days until I grow used to the effects and can function normally in the ole society....

So do you think over doing it would be counter productive to the benefits of micro dosing?  I think it would be hard to judge unless you use a mushroom that was consistent potency?    

 

I think most us could agree there is lot validity to using mushrooms as therapy.  However, most of my experience was towards large doses being more helpful with depression, addiction, and other issues.

I had great results with .5g every 2 hours up to 2.5g per day.
5 days on and 2 days off (if I felt like it). I did this for a few months and didnt notice a tolerance building at all.

I've been microdosing with 0.1 gram of Azurescens every 3rd day. I get a pretty good buzz off that much still because I've only been doing it for a week now. So far so good. I have noticed that my face feels all flush if I drink a beer, or have a whiskey. Is that a normal reaction from microdosing?

I'm not taking them daily.but every couple days I have been trying 0.1-0.5 gram. Some days dried. Some days fresh. Not enough to really fly. But some days it's enough to change the quality of light and give me the giggles. Today was 1.5 g wet stem.
This small amount doesn't seem to make me queasy or anything and I do think it's been helping turn my moods more to the positive.
Im in the middle of a divorce and my wife copes by finding new boyfriends and im trying to cope by finding myself. A process started years ago when our marriage started falling apart. I kinda fell apart and decided being what they call a "successful building professional" wasn't my idea of success. So I fired all my employees and decided to spend more time with my friends and family ( I had barely seen my friends and children for 3 yrs). And I honestly take home more $$$ at the end of the year now that I'm not worried bout workers comp. Unemployment insurance. Payroll. Bookkeeping. Training. Etc etc.

So.....blah blah blah. Mighta got a bit off subject....not really I guess. I was trying to outline the sources of my stress and depression that I'm using small doses to try and battle. I've had real bad experiences with antidepressants. ie seizures, manic episodes, delusions of grandeur followed by record lows as the meds changed my chemistry. So trying pcilocybin can't be any worse than those.

In my newly made opinion they are helping me move through a very difficult time and help me return to my musical artistic true self.

Sorry if I rambled a bit.

I agree that if have an affect from you intake what ever the amount, then your not micro dosing.
