Microdosing is a popular way for people to work on their mental and emotional well-being. The use of small amounts of psychoactive substances, such as psilocybin, is considered a new and effective approach to enhancing mental performance and treating emotional challenges. According to some experts, microdosing is a way to improve your focus and increase your energy
levels. It also makes it easier to get into a "flow state," where you are fully focused on a task or project, leading to increased productivity and better work performance. Other people use microdosing to address personal anxieties and emotional challenges. It is considered an effective way to restore mental and emotional balance, allowing you to better cope with the challenges of daily life. In general, many people see the benefits of microdosing as a powerful way to increase awareness and work on emotional and mental health. Whether you are working to improve your focus, productivity, or emotional stability, microdosing offers a promising path to achieving these goals.
No, we recommend that you prepare yourself properly. Our growth guide outlines all the guidelines so that you can start properly and get the most out of microdosing.
Microdosing and driving is not prohibited, but the person must take responsibility and never drive if they have taken too much or are microdosing for the first time. The right dose, however, can improve focus and vision, so driving is possible. It is important to experiment with the right dose in a safe environment and to stop participating in traffic if the dose feels too strong.
Microdosing and sports can be a very good combination, as it improves cognitive functions and results in better sports performances. It improves concentration, coordination, balance, reflexes, and even the flow state. After sports training, microdosing also provides a clear and relaxed feeling.
Microdosing and drinking alcohol is possible, but it is not recommended as it can diminish the benefits of microdosing and alter judgment and perception. It is advisable to microdose in a sober state to get the most benefit. Microdosing should be stopped after 8 weeks, as prolonged use can lead to aimlessness, mania, and anxiety. It is important to use microdosing consciously and
The dose for microdosing can be swallowed all at once. It is recommended not to chew it because the active ingredients will be released all at once. If you choose to chew it, eat it with dark chocolate. If you don’t like the taste, you can make a smoothie, tea or mix it with water. It is best to take your dose in the morning on an empty stomach for a more intense effect of psilocybin.
Be cautious when taking your first microdose. From here on out, you will search for your "sweet spot", your perfect dose. Age, weight, tolerance, and experience all play a role in how you react to psilocybin. Start your first dose with a lower dose of 0.3 grams to 0.5 grams. From there, take an additional 0.1 gram with each new microdosing day until you feel you have discovered your sweet spot. You will discover your sweet spot when you have taken “too much” during a dose, and then the previous dose will be your sweet spot. Once you have found it, take this dose until the end of your microdose cycle. If you have taken too much, there is no reason to be concerned because microdosing involves low doses. However, you may become less focused or productive because the effect of the truffle is overpowering.
At Micro Balance, we advise not to microdose for more than 8 weeks and to give your system a reset of at least 2 weeks. Use this period to look back at your microdose cycle and how you feel during your reset. You can always consult our guides to see what works best for you. If it’s your first time microdosing, start with a microdose cycle of 4 weeks.
To get the most out of your microdosing experience, it’s important to start consciously. Before you begin, make sure you have a clear idea of why you want to microdose, what you want to get out of your microdosing experience, and what steps you need to take to achieve your goals. Write all of this down in your tool for growth journal. It’s important to realize that certain habits
(smoking, coffee, alcohol) may not be conducive to your microdosing experience, so it’s important to avoid them during your microdose cycle. More information on this can be found in our Growth Guide. We recommend keeping a record of your experiences in your tool for growth journal during your microdose cycle. By doing so, you can clearly see the effect of microdosing and make any necessary adjustments. The first day of your microdosing cycle should be a day free of work and obligations. Give yourself a peaceful first day so that you can fully experience the effects of the
It has been proven that truffles do not cause psychological or physical addiction. However, it is important to remain vigilant of your relationship with microdosing.

The medications recommended for ADHD cannot be combined with microdosing psilocybin. Users of psilocybin have experienced very good results without
medication, using a microdosing protocol. Ritalin (methylphenidate) works, among other things, on the D2 dopamine receptors and neurons in the amygdala (this part of the brain is involved in primary emotions such as stress, anxiety, and aggression). If your amygdala is overactive or out of balance, this can have a significant impact on your mood and happiness. The downsides are that Ritalin can be addictive, confuse the amygdala, and cause anxiety and nervousness.
