Microdosing mushrooms, as they are known, are naturally occurring Fungi which are usually consumed raw or dried and ground up and drank in tea or coffee, and produce hallucinogenic effects. There are many, many different types and varieties of microdosing mushrooms with varying strengths. Basically the mushrooms release the imagination to internal or external influences and let it run without bounds, whether the ‘trip’ be pleasurable or a nightmarish experience is nearly uncontrollable. It generally takes no longer than an hour for the trip to engage, and can last up to 6 hours. It is like a less intense alternative to the far more dangerous semi-synthetic hallucinogen LSD.
Medicinal mushrooms such as microdosing mushrooms share much in common with human beings in terms of their chemical and genetic structure. Many scientists say that mushrooms are closer to human beings genetically than almost any other plant. Given this fact, certain “higher level” mushrooms, often called the “medicinal mushrooms” (NOT magic mushrooms!), can positively heal and impact the body, emotions, mind, and spirit of we humans who consume them.
