For those who are new to Psilocybin, we always advocate getting your feet wet before jumping in the pool. A gentle nano-mini dose is an excellent starting point for any new beginner. For those desiring a progressive change in mental health and outlook, we advise miro-dosing. If you are looking to appreciate some time with a friend, be creative, and would like to no longer drink in a social situation, the mini is fitting. The macro is a great origin point for delving deeper and getting some introspection and wisdom for enhancing one's life in a particular area. For those with obvious blocks that have been immune to traditional techniques, the Heroic dose allows you to have a complete brain reset, giving you the ability to release cultural conditionings, hard-wired programming and will enable the heart to be louder than the ego. Mystical and God dosing is for real spiritual awakening, deep philosophical thoughts, acceptance, and oneness with the universe. Ultimately a combination of Micro Dosing and Macro dosing, when used with full intention, guidance, and integration with proper breaks between sessions, will lead you to the results you never knew you could accomplish.

The effect of Psilocybin will vary depending on experience, body size, race, gender, genetics, diet, medications, and strain. These numbers are based on anecdotal evidence and are not facts. These numbers are from an average potency mushroom, and each stain and batch can yield varying results.
Psilocybin onset can be anywhere from fifteen minutes to a full hour, depending on the user's diet, state of mind, and health.
Possible impacts of Psilocybin include:
- Uncontrollable laughter
- Sense of connection or oneness
- Spiritual awakening
- Quickly changing emotions
- Derealization, or the feeling that surroundings are not real
- Depersonalization, or a dream-like sense of being disengaged from surroundings
- Distorted thinking
- Visual alteration and distortion, such as halos of light and vivid colours
- Introspective thoughts
- Dilated pupils
- Visited by entities
- Impaired concentration
- Muscle weakness
- Lack of coordination
- Unusual body sensations
- Frightening hallucinations
Psychological discomfort is the adverse result most often reported after recreational use of Psilocybin. This distress can take the form of extreme anxiety or short-term psychosis.
The benefits of Psilocybin are vast. It diminishes many mental afflictions such as depression, mania, bipolar, anxiety, OCD, PTDS, ADD/ADHD, PMS, addiction, anger, procrastination, loneliness, which will leave you with desired states of being and results, such as creativity, spirituality, energy, connections, improved relationships, pain levels, flow state, athletic coordination, problem-solving, meditation, forms of love.
Psilocybin mushrooms and their Psychedelic effects have been a part of human history for thousands of years. From the Fly Amanita being used by the Shamans in Finland to the Curanderos of Central America. These Sacraments have a long account of therapeutic and spiritual use, with traditions still passed down through family lines mother to daughter, father to son.
Science is just starting to catch up with the knowledge that these traditions have held for eons. They are beginning to understand how Psilocybin affects the brain and in which parts it works.
After ingesting mushrooms, the hydrochloric acid in your stomach converts the Psilocybin into Psilocin and passes the blood-brain barrier and then binds to the 5-HT2A receptors; this receptor affects mood. It helps the brain make new connections and help it find a new way to communicate between cells.
As it works its way through the brain, Psilocin affects the "Thalamus," which is the part of the brain that filters information, giving you the perception of hallucinations. IE the walls moving, or that flower telling you its life story.
Psilocin works at bypassing your "default mode network," responsible for your higher-level memory. Disintegrating this network allows for an increase in global connectivity, which might guide you to a mystical experience.
Researchers believe that resetting the brain's networks and relaxing one's prior beliefs is a massive part of the positive effects of Psilocybin. Psilocybin treats mental health issues such as treatment-resistant depression and debilitating anxiety.
There is also a theory about the tiny region in your brain called "the claustrum," which is involved in decision-making and attention, which could explain those weird shifts in self and experience.
Finally, we have the "medial prefrontal cortex," which is involved in memory and decision making, and the "posterior cingulate cortex," which controls your sense of identity. Both areas have been studied and theorized to be affected, giving you complete ego loss and freeing your mind from the paradigms that affect your daily living.
Again, this is all theory and not yet backed 100% by science. I think you'll never truly understand, nor do I need to. The sense and feelings you receive after a Psilocybin journey are one of understanding and love. It allows us to accept the mystery of the universe for what they are and focus more on the internal.
Psilocare: Four days on, Three days off.
Dr. James Fadiman: One day on, Two days off.
Mr. Paul Stamets: Five days on, Two days off.
After doing trials, I have anecdotal evidence that has shown the 4/3 is the sweet spot. With Dr. Fadiman, I found you get something out of the microdose but are losing out on the full benefits of a more rigorous cycle. With Paul's, I found tolerance after five days, and the two days were not a big enough gap between to have a proper reset bringing you back to baseline. After using this schedule myself and recommending it to all my clients, I believe this is the perfect spot for long-term use to achieve the highest results.
