Mental Health Benefits of Microdose Mushrooms


From Silicon Valley techies to suburban moms, more and more people are coming out of the closet about their incognito relationship with mushrooms. Despite their illegality, they’re taking them in small doses to treat mental health issues. It’s a practice called microdosing.This

It involves consuming very low, sub-hallucinogenic doses of psychedelic substances such as LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) or psilocybin mushrooms. This is much lower than what one would take to “trip” or hallucinate, and it’s also significantly lower than the amount used in clinical research that shows promise as a treatment for depression.

For Bea, a single mom from North County, it helped her to feel more like the truest version of herself. She says she felt more productive at work, more able to organize her day and better able to navigate the stresses of life. “My days glided by, and I didn’t have the anxiety of people-pleasing,” she says.

She also noticed changes in her mood, and in her ability to think and feel more creative. She credits her mushroom regimen with easing her anxiety and helping her to become more organized and efficient.

But Dr Lea warns that psilocybin, particularly at high doses, can have negative side effects, including anxiety and depression. He cautions that it’s best for anyone who has been diagnosed mental health issues to consult a doctor or mental health professional before trying it. Getting the right dosage is also important: He says home testing kits can help you figure out if something contains a psychedelic, but they don’t tell you how strong it is.
