Microdosing Psilocybin Mushrooms
The microdose can range depending on metabolism, body weight, and dietary habits. It is recommended to start low and work your way up. You can always take more, but you can’t take less once you’ve taken more!
Check out our how to prepare mushrooms for microdosing guide for in-depth details of how to properly dry and grind up psilocybin mushrooms to equalize the pislocybin content for proper microdosing solution preparation.
Since mushrooms vary in potency and psilocybin content by strains (type of mushroom), growing conditions, and moisture content, please consult our multi species psilocybin dosage calculator to calculate the proper dosage of a particular mushroom for yourself.
Buy A Scale
Terence McKenna’s is known for emphasizing the importance of buying a scale in his famous quote, “buy a scale”. This quote has never been more important when it comes to microdosing. It is essnetial to volumetric dosing in order to get an accurate dose of pislocybin.
Buy An Electronic Scale.
An electronic scale capable of accurately measuring from milligrams to pounds can be found on Amazon. You don't want to get a cheap unreliable scale. These are some of the ones we recommend:
What Is A Microdose Of Psilocybin
A microdose is 1/10th to 1/5th of the effective dose. The effective dose of Psilocybin is 2.5 grams (dry weight). The heroic dose of mushrooms is 5 grams.
We do the same division we did with LSD as with mushrooms. The effective dose is 2.5 grams and 2.5⁄10 is 0.25 grams (that’s a quarter of one gram), and 2.5⁄5 = 0.5grams (half of one gram).
7 Steps To Preparing Psilocybin Mushroom Microdosing Liquid Solution
Here’s how to prepare Mushroom microdosing solution in 7 easy steps. You will need the following equipment.
Buy an Electronic Milligram Scale
Acquire >40% ethanol.
Get 100ml syringes or droppers for accurate measurement.
Get a 100ml vial or dropper bottle for storage. Amber color is best as it does not let light through.
Measure out 1.0 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, and grind it down to a powder after drying it out. Consult our how to prepare mushrooms for microdosing guide for in-depth details of this process. In addition, consult our multi species psilocybin dosage calculator to determine the strain of psilocybin you have, and how much of that you would need to use. Mushrooms vary in potency due to strains and growing conditions.
Close the bottle with the cap, and shake it vigorously to completely dissolve the mushroom powder into the solution.
Using the syringe, measure out 25ml of the solution, which now contains 0.25g of Psilocybin Mushrooms.
Now can you enjoy the benefits of microdosing!
