first time microdosing?
We recommend your first microdose day be in the morning, before food or after a healthy breakfast. The active ingredients can be reactive to various foods in the body. Particularly fatty foods. Fatty foods can lessen the effects and/or slow the release. We also recommend for your first dose day that you choose a day in which you have minimal obligations or responsibilities (e.g. job interview, presentation etc.). That’s not a suggestion to do nothing! We believe that while starting, it is important to keep to your usual routine or activities so you can experience the effects of microdosing as intended; to assist with, or improve everyday life. Just maybe don’t microdose for your first day one hour before a job interview. Once you have a few days under your belt and are familiar with the right dose, we would flip this recommendation upside down. It could actually help with a job interview! Only you can determine that for sure.
You don’t. JUST KIDDING! Lol!
To put it in perspective, the lowest dose where you are likely to strongly feel psychedelic effects (but not yet ‘trip’ or hallucinate), is around 0.5 grams or more for mushrooms, spoken of as an entry level macro dose. A ‘hero dose’, where you trip intensely, is referenced at around 5 grams or more. If you have no experience, we’re recommending you start with 1/100th of that dose, or 50mg (0.05 grams). This is a very light dose and the average person will develop familiarity, comfortability, as well as tolerance, and quickly seek out microdosing in the 100-200mg range.
It can improve your everyday life. It can help you work through your anxiety and daily stresses. It can improve your ability to stay focused and increase wakefulness. It can help you feel more connected with the earth, with mother nature; and in your relationships, with friends and family. These medicines can be magical.
Several psychedelic substances have received breakthrough status from the FDA in the United States, and been approved for many dozens of studies by Health Canada. It is one of the most studied substances across the globe today. Over half a billion dollars has been invested in to medical R&D in the last two years alone. This movement, led by some truly amazing individuals and groups – and dating back longer than one might think – is reversing the age old stigma that psychedelics are harmful drugs and opening eyes to the reality that they are beneficial healing medicines. Healing medicines that very likely come with far less adverse side-effects than current day pharmaceuticals.
This really depends on what dosing schedule suits you. If you have never microdosed, and have no experience with psychedelics, we would recommend starting with one dose per every three days based on leading research. (You take two days off in between dosing). Remember that this is not an exact science yet. It is still being researched. Listen to your body. We encourage you to dose more or less frequently based on your desire, your experiences and ultimately what feels right. Some of our staff enjoy dosing Forage Blend Capsules three days on, two days off.
Recommended at least a few weeks of scheduled microdosing. Equally important is to take at least a couple of weeks off afterward, so that you can reflect on how you feel. You may intuit the need, or feel the desire to microdose again immediately after your break, or you may not want or need to for quite some time. There is no wrong choice. Just listen to your body. Microdosing should help you connect with your body on a deeper level and help you make those decisions.
Not true! You should feel a little something. Whether it’s improved ability to focus, problem solving, or reduced anxiety; easier to ‘see the bigger picture’, slightly happier or better mood, etc. It is difficult to describe acutely, and it varies from person to person, but you should feel the effects in some way or another. With that said, here are some ways that you should NOT feel:
- Distorted vision
- Difficulty concentrating
Microdosing at too high of a dose can lead to unwanted effects. While you should feel ‘something’, you shouldn’t feel something bad. If this happens, consider eating some food and taking a rest if possible until the negative effects pass. Thereafter, lower your dose, or stop altogether. Negative effects can happen, but have so far been very uncommon from our community. If you’d like to better understand both the potential benefits and drawbacks reported in an official microdosing study; we refer our members to the published study found here.
