How to Dose with Shrooms
The trick to a good trip is to know your dose. What are you in the mood for?
- 0.2 to 0.5 grams – This is the perfect amount for a microdose. Psychonauts who take a half gram or less every few days donâ€™t feel the trippier effects of psilocybin (the molecule responsible for your trip), but this small, regular amount can make you feel more creative and care-free.
- 0.8 to 1.5 grams – These are the bunny slopesâ€”ideal for a budding psychonaut or an experienced connoisseur who wants a mellow trip. At the low end, youâ€™re likely to experience a high similar to marijuana, while at the upper portion of this range youâ€™ll begin to notice auditory and visual hallucinations.
- 1.5 to 3 grams – Get ready for a real trip now. At this level, youâ€™re likely to experience waves of euphoria and vivid hallucinations. If you want a classic psychedelic experience, this is a good amount to let you experience fractals and other sensory enhancements without going overboard. Keep in mind that you may not register time normally at this phase.
- 3+ grams – This amount is best left to experienced users. Expect to lose touch with reality, which can sometimes be scary but often leads to profound insight.
