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. Some people only microdose on weekends. Some people skip weekends and only microdose on weekdays.

This is something you have to experiment with and figure out for yourself so you can continue your personally discovered regimen that works best for you.

Microdosing Schedules For Pain, Anxiety & Depression Management

  • Microdose every day for general cognitive enhancement.

  • Microdose every other day for psychological management of anxiety, depression and PTSD etc.

  • Microse evey weekday with weekends off for business and professional work-life enhancement.

Though, according to Dr. James Fadiman, the leading researcher on microdosing affects of LSD and Psilocin mushrooms:

  • 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.
