What is Microdosing? Essentially, microdosing is the act of consuming a micro-amount of a psychedelic substance for the purpose of increasing creativity, brain function, and other areas of your life. The dosage is so small that they provide no psychoactive effects, meaning you will not get ‘high’. This practice is suitable for any healthy adults that are looking to improve their quality of life and their overall experience of it in a functional way.
Microdosing is a relatively new practice that is growing exponentially, and for good reason, too! There is very little negative feedback from those who have tried microdosing. Thanks to the worlds first ever brain scan of the human brain on LSD, we received an insight as to how LSD directly affects the brain and its function(s). This study suggested that there are promising effects that can be found from taking micro-amounts of psychedelics as well as larger ones. Since then there has been a few small studies conducted on microdosing vs placebo and the results show that there was a surprising spike in cognitive abilities and brain functions for those who took the microdoses. Hopefully, as time goes on, more studies can be conducted and we can pinpoint exactly how microdosing affects our brains and in return affects our lives.
We believe that this is a magnificent step in the right direction for the psychedelic movement. There are so many different uses for psychedelics and this is a great way to normalize exploring them.
Microdosing is a journey and you may find unexpected benefits along the way. Everyone seems to have their own reasons for microdosing.

The ‘plastic’ containing each dosage is made out of 100% biodegradable materials so you can chuck it into your regular compost bin when you are finished! Along with a company whose morals align with ours, their eco-friendly packaging is why we chose to use Journey as our supplier for microdosing products.
So far we know that microdosing can cause slight anxiety or over-stimulation in rare cases. We suggest decreasing your consumption of coffee or other stimulants on dose days. Taking MicroMush could possibly result in slight nausea. If you are prone to nausea please take the necessary precautions and take ginger extracts, raw ginger prior to your dose, or whatever works best for you.
Our recommended dosage for this supplement is 1 truffle bunch (0.5 grams) on dose days. Each dosage is carefully weighed and separated by a heated seal. Store in your fridge just as you would regular truffles. Consume microdose within 3 hours of breaking seal. The subtle effects last roughly 8-10 hours. That being said, it is best taking your microdose in the morning as it will likely result in alertness and may interfere with your sleeping schedule if taken too late in the day. We always suggest to take every microdose with nourishing food to prevent nausea. However, you can also take on an empty stomach if that works for you.
Journey suggests the following microdosing schedule:
One day on, two days off.
Day one: Microdose (dose day)
Day two: Day Off
Day three: Day Off
Each MicroMush plan comes with an information card that includes this information. This schedule is suitable for those wanting to follow a steady microdosing schedule. If you follow this suggested schedule, this pack will last you one month. However, you can microdose whenever you please-find the right schedule that works best for you, your needs, and your lifestyle! Do not microdose 2 days in a row to prevent tolerance build-up if you want to ensure you are getting the most out of your microdosing journey!
We hope you enjoy this sacred spore practice and that it helps you along your journey in life. Sending you all the love as you return to your roots with the help of products that come from Mother Earth herself.
