Everyone is curious about micro-dosing for different reasons. Some are depressed, some have anxiety, some want to get over past life trauma, etc. I wouldn’t consider myself a depressed person, however, I do suffer from anxiety from time to time.
Recently, I decided to try micro-dosing out of straight-up curiosity. What I came to discover was phenomenal. It changed my outlook on life, made me a better (more patient) mother and allowed me to focus on things that I typically would put off. I also found that I was consuming alcohol less often and my fitness levels increased tenfold. In my relationship with myself, I became more aware of my emotions in every passing moment and could address them on the spot instead of letting them build up. I was in a better mood. My mind stopped making up reasons for me to be unhappy and instead focused my attention on the positive. Some days, a sense of inner peace would permeate my being. Overall, my life became more emotionally attuned, social, happy, and carefree, and less rigid, serious, and fear-driven. Many friends of mine remarked that I was more relaxed and calm and that I had more energy.
A lot of questions pop up because most of us have had bad past experiences on mushrooms. No, micro-dosing does not get you high if you follow the protocol, it increases awareness and has helped many cope with PTSD, overcoming trauma, depression and addiction issues, etc.

Some studies and info so that you can all self educate and discover the world of micro-dosing and if it is right for you.
- There are published clinical studies about the benefits of psychedelics. Contrary to popular belief, there are over 60 competed and in-progress studies around the world (at the time of this writing) intended to investigate the potential of psychedelics. These studies track treatment of a range of mental health conditions, including PTSD in veterans, depression and social anxiety for adults with autism, and end-of-life anxiety in cancer patients. Although there aren’t any published longitudinal studies involving healthy individuals, there has been an increasing amount of support for psychedelic research of all kinds in recent years, supported by organizations like the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Science (MAPS) in the United States and The Beckley Foundation in the UK.
Micro-dosing has served as training wheels for helping my brain develop the necessary pathways that it needed to access on its own. Do you have a personal story you would like to share to help others along their journey? Leave a comment below!
