Best Microdosing Schedule
People often wonder, how often should I take microdoses? Should a microdose be taken every day? Every other day? Once or twice a week? How much is too much? There are important questions, and luckily, a lot of research has recently begun in the field of psychedelic microdosing.
However, all the research aside, the best schedule is of course determined by you after extensive experimentaiton with your own mind and body. Some people microdose everyday. Some people only microdose once a week. Some people microdose a few times a day.
This is something you have to experiment with and figure out for yourself so you can continue your personally discovere regimen that works best for you.
Though, 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, feel the effects, and keep a journal of everything you do and how you feel.
Day two, you’re still having the effects, but they are not as pronouced.
Day three, you should be noticeably not having the effects at all. This is a day of rest and comparison/contrast.
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.

According to Dr. Fadiman, an expert and pioneer on microdosing, take a microdose every 4th day for about 10 weeks in order to study its effects.
Day 1 Microdose
You feel more calm, thoughtful, relaxed, and focused. The benefits would stay throughout the day. You will have energy and stamina, not only physically but also mentally.
Day 2 Residual Effects
Day 2 is more subtle, but more balanced. According to James Fadiman, this effect is also only exclusive to microdosing, because a full dose (100ug LSD or 2.5g Mushrooms) will wear off in around 6 hours for shrooms, 12 hours for LSD, but for some reason, a microdose of either lasts longer than a day.
Day 3 No Remaining Effects
Third day is to be totally sober and compare the mind to the first two days. What did you do differently? How do you feel? It’s important to have a break for a day. Try to keep a journal of your daily activities, emotions, and feelings. Note down how your interactions went with other human beings. What did you find yourself doing differently?
Day 4 Micro-Dose Again
Day four brings us back to microdosing after taking a day off (day 3).
Take notes regarding the various observed effects of the sub-perceptual dose. Keeping a journal of the things you do differently and any other observations or changes become essential for a closer study of your mind and body.
