There is limited scientific research on the effects of microdosing mushrooms.
Many individuals who engage in microdosing mushrooms report experiencing benefits such as increased mood, creativity, focus, and reduced anxiety.
Psilocybin, the active compound in mushrooms, is believed to interact with serotonin receptors in the brain.
While microdosing involves taking small amounts, there can still be risks, including potential interactions with medications, allergic reactions, and psychological effects.
The legality of psilocybin-containing mushrooms varies by country and even within regions. In many places, it is illegal to possess or use them.
Effects can vary widely from person to person. What works positively for one individual might not have the same effect for another.
Microdosing should not be seen as a substitute for professional mental health treatment.
