In the last decade, microdosing has become the newest trend. People are turning to low doses of psychedelics such as magic mushrooms and LSD to tap into their therapeutic potential without experiencing a full trip.
The trend began with the tech-savvy individuals at Silicon Valley. Microdosing was and is their way of gaining a competitive edge on their colleagues and competitors in a world where creating the next big tech-centered company could earn someone millions if not billions of dollars.
Microdosing on shrooms has been associated with a myriad of benefits, such as improved productivity, reduced anxiety and depression levels, enhanced focus, and elevated concentration levels.
According to the US Drug Policies, psychedelics were linked to treating several mental health conditions in the 50s and 60s. Unfortunately, the global war against drugs prevented the advancement of psychedelic-centered research.
Anecdotal evidence from shroom microdosers indicates microdosing is an effective way to stay productive and curb different forms of anxiety. According to them, small doses of psilocybin have positively altered their lives. Since they started microdosing, they have become the best version of themselves.
What is microdosing?
Microdosing involves taking small quantities of shrooms, usually a tenth of a trip-inducing dose, 2 to 3 times a week. This is done for a few weeks or months. A microdosing dosage is generally between 100mg and 200mg of dried mushrooms (it can be in raw forms, capsules, or as edibles).
The small doses allow the consumer to stick to their daily routine, such as working, caring for the children, and travelling.
Research looking into the effectiveness of microdosing in alleviating anxiety and boosting productivity
A qualitative study conducted by analyzing YouTube videos and the consequent discussion on microdosing indicates that microdosing on shrooms helped lower anxiety levels for a majority of the participants.
Small doses of psilocybin work by curbing feelings and tendencies that trigger anxiety and the need to hide in a shell. Individuals with anxiety noted that microdosing helped them become more self-loving, confident, and happier.
The same study looked into the relationship between microdosing and increased productivity. The conclusions made indicated that psilocybin does help boost convergent and divergent thinking. Most microdosers attested that shrooms helped elevate their creativity and productivity levels.
Small doses of psilocybin heightened productivity for individuals who engage in cognitive-demanding tasks, such as academic work, software development, and engineering.
A study done by Vince Polito on microdosing concluded that small doses of psilocybin did help reduce the levels of anxiety and depression.
According to anecdotal evidence, microdosing on shrooms does boost productivity and alleviate anxiety levels. Thousands of people are incorporating small psilocybin in their wellness routine to make their lives more positive.
There is a limited number of scientific studies available to support these claims. However, as more studies are conducted, we can expect significant milestones in the use of psilocybin to treat psychiatric conditions, such as anxiety and depression.
