Magic Mushrooms, (Psilocybin) has become quite popular these days. People are claiming that it offers benefits, including increased creativity, focus, enhanced well-being, improved mood, and mental clarity. Microdosing implies that one is ingesting a sub threshold dose of psychedelic mushrooms.
A sub threshold dose can vary, depending upon one’s age, body size, mental state, and overall sensitivity to plant medicine. A sub threshold dose can typically be 1/10th to 1/20th of a typical recreational dose.
Terrence Mc Kenna would often describe a heroic dose as 5 g.
I’ve personally gone up to 3 1/2 g and I’ve had experiences that were what I would call heroic in nature.
Microdosing has become popular with athletes to improve performance in their chosen sport.
Ian McCall, a retired UFC fighter, praises the benefits of psilocybin, and is a psychedelic integration coach for athletes at the McCall method.
Famous quarterback, Aaron Rodgers has openly spoke about his Ayahuasca experiences.
Mike Tyson is a big advocate of psychedelics and credits them with helping him lose 100 pounds and with his recent return to the boxing ring for a fight.
I’ve been experimenting with small doses that I have gradually been increasing. I started with 1/16th of a teaspoon and have worked my way up to 1/4 of a teaspoon. I will typically do this two, maybe three times a week.
Being naturally a seeker of knowledge and wisdom, I feel this has been an overall enhancement to this process. As I like to say, it “sharpens” the edges of reality. I particularly notice this in nature settings the most.
I often wonder about the potential benefits of microdosing magic mushrooms with autistic kids.
This is a very challenging condition to “unwind”.
I have had a niece recently begin administering microdoses of magic mushroom to her four-year-old autistic child. She is giving him one 16th of a teaspoon a day, 3 times a week.
After a few weeks, she has reported the following.
“He’s tolerating it well. We’ve noticed a little bit better behavior over the last week or so (less OCD tendencies).”
My guess is that this is being utilized out there, but under reported due to concerns about its legality.
What have your experiences been? Do you know anyone with an autistic child who has had positive results? Let me know and help spread the word.
