In previous articles about microdosing psychedelics, we have covered different use of psilocybin for different mental health issues according to research. There are people in different parts of the world today that share their experience with these substances regularly.

The interest in the substance continues to increase, with researchers working to explore its full potential. In this article, we’ll go through a few practical considerations that you should know. This includes timing, dosing, how to choose a substance, and other common concerns.

Key Considerations Before Choosing a Substance

There are two things that will determine the substance you choose:

Your Goals

Your goals should be the first thing you consider before you choose a substance. Whether you want more focus, more creativity, more logical orientation, or more emotional attunement. The substance you choose can influence how you achieve your goal. Other reasons for microdosing include increasing empathy and connection with people. In general, it’s best to have a goal before you settle for any substance to microdose.

How you Respond to Substance

A vital thing to note is that all substances don’t affect people in the same way. These substances leave different effects on people. For example, there are reports that microdosing psilocybin increases empathy, creativity, and openness. There are also reports about it causing less analytical thinking, logic, and focus. On the other hand, reports show the complete opposite with LSD.

With that said, it’s important that you find what works for you before choosing a substance. The main thing to always remember is that choosing a substance is a personal decision. Also, effects generally vary from person to person.

Obtaining the Substance

The legality of the substance is one of the most vital things to consider before obtaining the substance. We’ll go through some of the common procurement methods:

Procurement Methods

The common methods people use are

  • DIY: Today, there are different mushroom grow kits on the market, and they are legal in many countries. However, they are not always a reliable option. There are also DIY guides to making LSD, and you can find these in many psychedelic communities. While there are DIY methods, it’s always advisable to leave the job for professionals. Doing this at come can be dangerous and impractical.
  • Buy from Trusted Sources: The may way people obtain the substance they want to microdose is from a trusted local source. This is because they are readily available and reliable. However, you may need to try a couple of times before you find a trusted source. However, you won’t easily find a trusted local source in regions with strict drug laws. 

Drug Quality and Formats

In addition to knowing where to buy from, it’s important to know that these substances come in different forms.

Mushrooms are sold whole and dried

In most cases, you’ll find mushrooms being sold whole and dried. However, you can also find liquid and powdered varieties and even crystals. However, it’s best to go for the whole and dried variety. Another thing to note is that the measurement of psilocybin in each variety may differ.

LSD is sold on paper blotters

The case is different with LSD as they are sold on paper, and people consume them by dissolving them on their tongues. Liquid forms of the substance are also available, and a dose is contained in each drop. However, the paper form is the most common.

Finding the Right Dose

Common Approaches

There are different approaches that people use, but the most common is Fadiman’s Protocol. This protocol generally recommends starting low and increasing to higher doses gradually. There are other protocols that people use, and you can find more information in our microdosing guide.

Track Effects with a Checklist

Here are a few things to check to keep track of the effects that you experience:

  • Creative: Check whether you are finding qualities in new likes or if you find your mind wandering in new directions. Also check if you’re getting new ideas and solutions.
