If you’ve never heard of 4-AcO-DMT, check out our guide to What is 4-AcO-DMT, otherwise known as Psilacetin or O-Acetylpsilocin? Here is Psychedelics Daily’s guide on how to Microdose 4-AcO-DMT. If you are microdosing the 4-AcO-DMT substance, please contact us and comment below with your 4-AcO-DMT microdosing report.
What is a Microdose of 4-AcO-DMT
1-dried-gram Psilocybin mushrooms is approx. equal to 10-mg of 4-AcO-DMT
An effective dose of Psilocybin is 2.5-grams. As discussed in the What is 4-AcO-DMT? guide, the effective normal dose of 4-AcO-DMT is about 25-mg.
What dose of 4-aco-DMT is best comparable to Psilocybin Microdosing
According to Erowid, magic shrooms are roughly 0.5% psilocin by weight, so about 5mg per gram of dried shrooms. Psilocybin mushrooms contain 0.63% psilocybin and 0.60% psilocin. Therefore, 1-gram of shrooms has 6 mg each of psilocin and psilocybin. The psilocybin dephosphorylates to roughly 4.5mg of psilocin, which totals to approx 10mg of psilocin per gram of dried mushrooms.
The molar mass of 4-HO-DMT, or Psilocin is around 204.273 g/mol. Psilocybin’s molar mass is 284.25 g/mol.
4-AcO-DMT’s molar mass is about 246.3049 g/mol for freebase, and a molar mass of 116.07 g/mol for fumaric acid which adds to a total of 362 g/mol. 4-AcO-DMT is sold as fumarate salt or hydrochloride (HCL). The molar masses are 4-AcO-DMT HCl - 282.7649 g/mol, and 4-AcO-DMT Fumarate - 304.3399 g/mol respectively.
(362.4 / 204.3) * 5 = 8.869. We’ll round it off to 10. One gram of dried psilocybin mushrooms is roughly equal to about 10mg 4-AcO-DMT, for simplicity’s sake.
|Microdose - 0.25 (1⁄4) dried-grams||2.5-mg (Microdose)|
|0.5 (1⁄2) dried-grams||5-mg|
|1 dried gram||10-mg|
4-AcO-DMT microdose is 2.5-mg. Start with 2.5-mg. Please keep in mind that these dosage levels were calculated by myself, which work best for my body. Some people have reported that 25-mg of 4-AcO-DMT feels like an eigth oz. (3.5 gram) mushroom trip.
Bearing in mind our unique physiologies, you may want to start your experiments with 1-mg. If you don’t notice any effects, try 1.5-mg. Similarly, if noticing no effects still, proceed to slowly increase the dosage to 2.5-mg.
If 2.5-mg produces no effects, then just like mushrooms (Psilocybin microdose is 0.25-grams to 0.5-grams), you may have to play around in the 2.5-mg to 5-mg range, as 4-AcO-DMT is almost identical to Psilocybin mushrooms.
A lot of people find that 4-AcO-DMT offers a much more consistent micro dose regimen because of the fact that unlike mushrooms, the potency of the compound isn’t affected by the amount. Mushrooms vary in potency due to strains and growing conditions.
Preparing 4 AcO DMT for microdosing
Without a scale that is able to measure in milligrams, 4-AcO-DMT can be very tricky to microdose. It is recommended that you get a scale, otherwise please do not attempt to consume 4-AcO-DMT, as eyeballing or miscalculating can turn out to be potentially dangerous. For harm reduction purposes, it is essential that you get a scale that can measure to the milligram, that is, to 0.001g.
If you don't have a milligram scale, do not attempt to consume 4-AcO-DMT fumarate or any powder form.
Buy a Milligram Scale
Accurate dosages can only be measures using an electronic milligram scale. If your measurement is off by even a few milligrams, the microdosing effects would be negated. You would either not take enough, or take too much.
Buy An Electronic Scale.
An electronic scale capable of measuring in milligrams can be found on Amazon for $15 to $25.
Preparing 4 AcO DMT Capsules
A lot of people don’t like the bitter taste, so they order empty capsules from Amazon and fill them up with the measured dose. It can be a bit tedious to individually measure out 2.5-mg, but some people don’t seem to mind the effort.
If you don’t have an accurate milligram scale, I don’t recommend consuming 4-AcO-DMT. Period.
Mixing 4 AcO DMT in Water
Psychonaut Wiki’s Volumetric Dosing Guide is one of the best methods by which to consume microdoses of 4-AcO-DMT, among many other substances.
If you don’t have a milligram scale, volumetric dosing won’t work.

Mixing 4 AcO DMT in Drinks and Food
After having measured out the correct dosage, feel free to consume it with food or drinks per your taste. Apart from 4-AcO-DMT’s dose difference, almost everything mentioned in How to Prepare a Psilocybin Mushroom Microdose and How to Microdose Acid and Magic Mushrooms? is applicable. Follow those guides and stay safe.
Microdosing 4 AcO DMT Blotter Tabs
If you have measured blotter tabs of 4-AcO-DMT, start with finding out exactly what-mg they are. Usually, blotter tabs come in 20-mg - 25-mg. If that’s the case, and you have, for example, 20-mg blotter tabs of 4-AcO-DMT, then start by cutting the 20-mg tab into two equal parts to get 10-mg halves. Now divide these in half again to get four 5-mg squares. Now cut each 5-mg square in half to get 2.5-mg pieces. A microdose of 4-AcO-DMT is 2.5-mg.
What Is The Recommended Microdosing Schedule
According to Dr. James Fadiman, the leading researcher on microdosing affects of LSD and Psilocin mushrooms:
Dr. James Fadiman’s Microdosing Schedule
- On day one, you dose.
- Day two, you’re still having the effects.
- Day three, you should be noticeably not having the effects, and on day four you dose again.
- For self-study, that’s ideal because it gives you a chance to see what’s going on. After a month — which is all I ask of people — most people say that they’re still microdosing, but not as often.
Dr. Fadiman says to take a microdose every 4th day. For 10 weeks:
Please consult our How to Microdose LSD and Magic Mushrooms? guide to read more about the four-day microdosing schedule.
Dr Fadiman hasn’t spoken about 4-AcO-DMT microdosing to my knowledge. I have personally applied his regimen for mushrooms to 4-AcO-DMT and it seems to work exactly the same. In fact, after having microdosed on over a dozen 4-substituted tryptamines, I have found that almost all psychedelic tryptamines (with the notable exception of DMT) function in “almost” exactly the same manner in tiny doses such as microdoses.
Essentially, microdosing LSD or Psilocybin or 4-AcO-DMT (and many other psychedelic tryptamines drugs) in micro doses function and behave in exactly the same manner. I’ve observed for myself and I’ve not been able to verify these findings with others. Please send in your 4-AcO-DMT microdosing reports to us for further study. Thank you!
Be Mindful and Conscious While Microdosing
I find it essential to keep a daily journal of my activities, feelings, emotions, and thoughts. Be mindful and aware as you observe your daily life.
Observe your thoughts. Be attentive to your mind and body. Observe any changes in your desire for various foods or pleasures. What do you find yourself wanting to do? I’ve observed that microdosing psychedelic tryptamines give me a clarity of perception with which I can observe the complete interaction of this living and thriving organism in the Universe in which it dwells.
In Conclusion, 4-AcO-DMT is Great For Microdosing
4-AcO-DMT is safe to microdose and consume. 2-mg to 2.5-mg (up to 5-mg) is the dosage range for microdosing 4-AcO-DMT. I find micorodosing 4-AcO-DMT to be more effecient and consistent than mushrooms. Due to the differences in mushrooms strains and growing conditions, their potency can vary. However, 10-mg of 4-AcO-DMT molecules are always exactly 10-mg of 4-AcO-DMT molecules.
Most of the research on 4-AcO-DMT was conducted on myself. When I started consuming 4-AcO-DMT circa 2008, I didn’t really know much about it. Luckily, I was able to find this forum post by Beeker which rather accurately described the dosage levels. Over the years, I have found these measurements to be on point and extremely accurate.
