    Hi

    I just started to microdose every 3 days for bipolar depression & ptsd. I've been off meds for about one year. Has anyone successfully treated issues microdosing? I know that I'll want to mix it up with some heroic doses. Thanks!

    My whole family is mocrodosing for depression and motivation and general mind health, i'm a bi annual heroic doser myself, about every 2 years I eat as many as i can fit in my gut, I call it the Mind Enema, helps me focus on the good and let go of the negative that had been subconsciously hanging on through living and operating in this fucked up society.

    Most microdosers I know are on daily capsules of around 0.17g, 4 days on and 2 days off, but after a while everyone tweaks that to match their own feelings and situation, some folks do 2 days on and 2 days off, my brother says he takes them everyday but on the 5th day he feels a bit wired, so that is his marker, the wired feeling day is the start of his 2 days off.

    The goal being is that the brain sees the seratonin state of the limbic system under microdosing as the new normal state and tries to replicate that state on the days off, then hopefully one day we roll straight past the day we were meant to take them again not even noticing we are still mentally balanced.

    Thanks, brother! I hope you are all seeing good results! I just started every three days, as I've been eating loads for fun for the pst 3 months. Today, I don't feel as depressed. I don't really notice any other difference except I saw a few rainbow hallucinations in the bath. I don't have a scale, so I'm just eating a pinch of dried cubes

    I got a buddy who is a life long goth guru, he runs a morbid curiosity shop that legally sells human parts like preserved medical specimens and tribal icons, his depression and morbid outlook fits his life completely hahaha he started microdosing about a month ago and its fucking with his whole life, he realising he built a life around being morbid and depressed as if it was normal.

    This is my buddies shop

    He's currently like the young girl from Adams Family suddenly seeing the true beauty of the world he has lived in his whole life and not looked at properly

    It might be coming, usually each item he sells has a little depressing write up on a placard explaining what it is and where it came from, they are starting to have weird light hearted ironic humour woven in now, its only been a month, I think he has already secretly bought a bright orange t shirt

    I bet he has a kitten poster. We are what we eat, read, who we give our energy to, and the thoughts we tell ourselves. Shrooms are a portal to freedom

    Lol that's great! Yea been doing the microdose thing kinda go as bod's bro does and when my pinch worth seems to have no effect and that fuzzyish feeling comes on I take a few days off... heard microdose is good for anxiety and depression but the "heroic" dose is great for deep mental changes. I need a good heroic dose but the Trichoderma keeps getting me! My wife had a bad trip once and get very nervous about eating them again(I totally understand). So this weekend she made some erbamate tea and I slipped a small pinch in it. We went flower shopping and had a picnic in a park. She was unaware of the dose until later that night I asked however day went and she said she felt so relaxed and her anxiety was on the low. I told her and she of course smacked me and called me a sneaky little shit but it opened her eyes. It was great we had fun! O and yes without a scale I have heard that a pinch is very roughly .2 to .3 of a gram. I sometimes take 2 pinches...

    Even when I eat a large dose I always start it with a small one, half a gram to a gram which I eat slowly, then about 40 minutes after as I come up on the small dose and pass any subconscious anxiety lurking I start eating the rest, just chew them at a nice slow pace connecting to the flavours and aromas, I still swear to this day you can feel it being absorbed through your gums as your visuals start intensifying as you chew

    That is a good idea then the mind cant consume you as you have already become bored of thinking about everything that could go wrong. I do love the flavor sometimes I just hold them in my teeth like I'm dipping chew lol!

    A great simple preserver and cool thing to impress

    Get your fungi bone dry/cracker dry, cover in maple syrup and place on parchment paper back in the dehydrator (at 110f ) you used to get the fungi dry, boom next day dry and totally handle-able and like they preserved in Amber, Jurassic Park style
