WHAT IS PSILOCYBIN?

Psilocybin is a natural compound found in over 200 species of fungi that induces profound changes in perception and consciousness. When ingested, psilocybin interacts with serotonin receptors in the brain, resulting in altered sensory experiences, enhanced introspection, and a sense of unity with the surroundings. It has a rich cultural history of ceremonial and spiritual use and is now being used for its therapeutic benefits in mental health treatment.

WHAT IS MICRODOSING?

Microdosing refers to the practice of consuming small amounts of psychedelic substances with the intention of experiencing their benefits without feeling intoxicated or “tripping out.”

This technique can enhance professional performance increase clarity, and improve mood disorders like anxiety and depression. By taking a fraction of the typical recreational dose, microdosers seek to stimulate mental and physical functions while eliminating psychedelic effects.

The effects of microdosing are subtle, with users reporting increased creativity, energy, and positive changes to their thought patterns. Although the doses are minuscule, the impact can be life-changing. Microdosing allows individuals to continue their day as usual while experiencing the therapeutic and performance benefits of psychedelic substances.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

One theory is that microdosing increases the availability of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, which is involved in regulating mood, appetite, and sleep.

Another theory proposes that microdosing enhances neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to change and adapt in response to new experiences. This could lead to increased creativity, cognitive flexibility, and problem-solving abilities.

Microdosing may also reduce activity in the default mode network, which is responsible for self referential and ruminative thought patterns, leading to a more present and focused state of mind.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Because we recommend 1 capsule, 3 times a day and each capsule contains 50mg of psilocybin there should minimal (a slight tickle) or no feeling at all after consumption.

Our mission is to improve mental health without the psychoactive affects. We have specifically curated our products for low psilocybin doses taken multiples times throughout the day so the medicine does not interrupt a daily routine with the feeling of being “high.”

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?

A microdose of psilocybin ranges between 0.1-0.3 grams of dried mushrooms. By following our protocol of 3 capsules per day, you reach a daily limit of 0.15 grams which is the optimal microdose amount to carry on with your day without feeling the psychedelic effects.

MENTAL HEALTH AND MICRODOSING

Microdosing has come to the forefront for therapy for mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress, ADHD and more. Studies have shown that microdosing positively affects mental health by increasing neuroplasticity, promoting emotional regulation, and reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change and adapt in response to new experiences, and it plays a key role in learning and memory. Microdosing enhances neuroplasticity by increasing the availability of certain neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, which are involved in regulating mood, motivation, and reward. This improves cognitive flexibility, creativity, and problem-solving abilities.

Microdosing also promotes emotional regulation by reducing activity in the default mode network, which is responsible for self-referential and ruminative thought patterns. This leads to a more present and focused state of mind, and less rumination and worry.

Overall, microdosing positively affects mental health by enhancing neuroplasticity, promoting emotional regulation, and reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I MICRODOSE?

With happy thoughts blends, we recommend taking 3 capsules per active while following the Stamets protocol (Paul Stamets is pioneer of the microdose space) which encourages 4 CONSESCUTIVE days on and days CONSECUTIVE days off.

There are other protocols to follow, including the Fadamins protocol (James Fadamin is another microdose pioneer) which recommends 1 ACTIVE day and 2 REST days. The Microdosing Institute recommends microdosing every other day.

And finally, introducing the happy thoughts protocol! Building upon the principles of the Stamets protocol, we have discovered an alternative approach that maximizes efficacy while ensuring uninterrupted benefits. We propose taking one capsule twice a day for four consecutive days, followed by one capsule once a day for three consecutive days. This optimized schedule aims to maintain a consistent presence of active ingredients, avoiding potential disruptions in effectiveness.

At the end of the day the choice is yours as to which protocol is right for you and happy thoughts has made sure to provide a month supply for all protocols.
