Macrodosing is the art of taking moderate doses of psychedelic substances, in this case, magic mushrooms, for spiritual uplifting, recreational reasons, or to tap into its therapeutic potential. The doses are usually high but not enough to trigger a full psychedelic trip.
Macrodosing is not new; it was prevalent in the 60s and 70s before the war on drugs intensified. As psychedelics made a big comeback, more people are interested in their benefits.
In recent years, microdosing has taken over psychedelic culture. Microdosing involves taking very low doses of psilocybin or psilocin to benefit from its mind-unlocking capability without experiencing full-body effects.
Macrodosing differs from microdosing in that the shroom dosage is slightly more potent. The effects of macrodosing include mood elevation, mild visual hallucinations, reflective thoughts, and feelings of being more alive, free, and liberated. With macrodosing, one does not experience a full trip. It can be described as the middle ground between microdosing and taking a museum or moderate dose.
What’s the correct dosage for macrodosing on magic mushrooms?
The magic mushrooms’ potency depends on a few factors, such as species variety, shroom origin, cultivation conditions, fresh or dried, and the harvest period.
- Microdose: 50mg to 250mg
- Mini dose / Macrodose: 250mg to 750mg
- Museum dose: 500mg to 1 gram
- Moderate dose: 2 grams to 3.5 grams
- Mega dose: 5 grams or more
This is sufficient to provide you with a three to six hours-long experience. Taking higher doses than this is not recommended, especially for newbies. The best way to enjoy macrodosing is by taking a manageable dose that doesn’t cause a full psychedelic trip.
