Hey Stranger!

From dosage to effects, and everything in between, here’s the ultimate guide to microdosing mushrooms.


Ingesting micro amounts of mushrooms could help you feel more focused, creative and present.

Recent literature suggests that the benefits of microdosing are limitless. In addition to improving energy, mood, creativity, and focus, microdosing can help with anything from neuroinflammation and mental health disorders to breaking an addiction and unwanted habits. Kind Stranger encourages you to track your intentions with microdosing in order to get the most out of your experience when incorporating products into your weekly routine. With proper intention setting and tracking, the benefits of microdosing include but are not limited to: relieving cluster headaches and migraines, treating disorders such as OCD, PTSD, Anorexia, Bulimia, MDD, and anxiety, relieving menstrual pain, and even facing realities of impending death. 

What Will Microdosing Feel like?

If you’re new to microdosing, the idea of taking small amounts of a substance can be daunting–especially if you’ve never taken that substance before. Microdoses do not contain enough psilocybin mushrooms to trigger any form of hallucination. You may notice your feeling more energetic, happy, and extroverted. You may notice that our capsule blends decrease any anxiety or stress associated with a work day. You may also find yourself feeling more creative. People refer to microdoses as “coffee to wake up to the mind-body connection.” 

About an hour or two after taking a KIND STRANGER microdose, people will notice an increase in focus and energy. Many users find that it helps with weaning off of their anti-depressants.

Dosing Regimen

Kind Stranger suggests following the Fadiman protocol for the most effective results, which involves dosing every other day to prevent a build-up of tolerance. Each Kind Stranger pouch includes a recommended dosing schedule in line with the Fadiman protocol.

Mushrooms, while nonaddictive, can cause a tolerance to build, so it is important to take breaks in between. Fadiman advises taking a microdose before 10 a.m. “Taking it later may make it harder to fall asleep. From there, people should keep to their daily schedule: work, leisure, meals, medications, exercise.” After the month, Fadiman found that most people continued to microdose only occasionally, on an as-needed basis.


For first-time users, your first two days should be at home with zero responsibilities. Try it over a weekend. You need to gauge your own receptiveness to the product and become familiar with it before moving on. Dosing schedules can vary as it depends on individual preference.
