“The ingestion of a substance, typically considered psychedelic in nature, at such low doses that they don’t trigger hallucinations or altered states of consciousness.”

A typical microdose is considered to be one tenth or one twentieth of standard dose. Ex. If you would consume around 2 grams of mushrooms for an enjoyable “trip”, a microdose in relation to that microdose would be considered 100 or 200 mg. 

Many individuals who choose to microdose will follow a regimen for about a month which includes taking a microdose one day and taking a few days off before taking another. This gives the body a chance to reset itself between doses to maximize beneficial effects. 

These doses, although miniscule, are still potent enough to trigger cellular responses, most notably in the brain, slowly altering neural network patterning, neurotransmitter balance, and overall nervous system activity. Individuals who regularly microdose commonly report feeling more energized, focused, creative, open, and tend to have a more positive affect and outlook on life during their microdose.

Microdosing is not for everyone though. Genetic predispositions, mental illness, and even generalized anxiety don’t seem to generally agree well with microdosing. Some microdoses can be overstimulating or enhance predisposing moods and patterns that may result in a less than ideal outcome.
