Mental Health and Micro Dosing Magic Mushrooms
Magic mushrooms have been around for thousands of years, used for spiritual and ritual purposes all around the world. The hallucinogenic effects of the mushrooms have raised interest in the scientific community, only to discover that the mushrooms have not only hallucination inducing properties, but also qualities that make a positive difference for many sufferers of clinical grade depression and anxiety.
Here are some things that you should know about micro dosing magic mushrooms and their benefits on mental health:
- What is micro dosing – the practice involved the administration of a very small dose that is around 10% of the normal dose. The purpose of reducing the dose is to lose the hallucinogenic effects, while maintaining the benefits of the mushrooms on the taker’s mental health.
- How is micro dosing beneficial – the research programs carried out with the participation of hundreds of volunteers have concluded that magic mushrooms administered in micro doses induced an almost instant amelioration in the symptoms experienced by people suffering from depression and anxiety. The most common benefits reported by the volunteers included more positive thinking in general, enhanced focus and concentration, more empathy, higher levels of energy, improved sleep patterns and an improvement in social skills. The positive effects of popular Golden Teachers mushrooms as well as other magic mushroom psychedelics were noticeable after the administration of a single micro dose and lasted long, too.
