Today I took my first microdose. Unfortunately it's effects were negligible. I would like a little feedback as to what was potentially preventing me from my overall experience (if you can even call microdosing an "experience"?). For starters, I have never ventured outside the realms of alcohol and tobacco, not marijuana, not anything. I tried to keep a very open, yet objective mind. Perhaps I was expecting too much? I am 6'3 320lbs, yes I'm a big guy and should lose weight, my intention is to start working on that this week LOL.
Anyways, I got connected with a very reputable source and got my hands on 3gs of dried mushrooms, ground down and put into capsules, each capsule is ranging from 0.19g to 0.22g. Below is a timeline of events from today:
4:05 pm - I ingested one capsule (0.2g) and began working (I play poker professionally, today I played online and not at the casino).
5:00 pm - Messaged my buddy that there was absolutely no difference from how I had felt prior to taking the capsule (minus a slight bit of residual anxiety). He told me to wait another 30 minutes before trying a second capsule.
5:40 pm - Ingested a second capsule
6:45 pm - Still no noticeable change, I felt slightly drowsy likely due to the fact that I stayed up late driving and didn't get a full night's rest.
7:00 pm - I ingested a third capsule.
7:45 pm - Felt slightly more giddy and chipper than normal, although it was ever so slight (maybe equivalent to drinking a beer on an empty stomach). This could definitely of been some sort of placebo effect.
11:45 pm - NOW....really haven't felt anything. I have a slight headache on my right temple but other than that there has been almost no difference in my overall productivity/focus/vibe than me feeling a bit more giddy around 7:45pm before dinner. I say "a bit more giddy", it was very slight and potentially not even worth noting.
Is 0.6g over 3 hours too low of a dose for a guy my size? Should I try 0.8-1g later on this week for my second dosage, would 0.6g be better to ingest all at once? Any tips would be greatly appreciated
Thanks for allowing me into your community!
PS I have been taking Lion's Mane for the past 3 days before this.
