Frequently Asked Questions
Can psilocybin be detected in a drug test?
Psilocybin and its metabolites are not included in most standard drug screens; however they are sometimes included in extended drug screens.
Where can I purchase psilocybin mushrooms?
Psilocybin mushrooms are still illegal to buy, possess and grow in many countries. Make sure you’re aware of your local laws before you decide to microdose.
If you live somewhere that allows the cultivation of psilocybin mushrooms for personal use, consider growing your own psilocybin mushrooms.
If you live in Europe, you may have the option of purchasing Psilocybin Truffles, which are legal in the Netherlands. Remember, these are less potent than psilocybin mushrooms, and an ideal starter dose is 0.5g of dried Truffle powder.
Is microdosing magic mushrooms and other psychedelics illegal?
Microdosing is not necessarily illegal. Several countries allow the cultivation of psilocybin mushrooms, the purchase of psilocybin truffles, or the purchase of LSD analogues. We do not condone microdosing where it is against the law, as penalties can be severe.
Is microdosing magic mushrooms safe?
The riskiest thing about microdosing is its potentially illegal nature. Always be aware of your local laws and don’t undertake any illegal activities.
There are no clinical research studies on microdosing in humans. However, clinical studies of larger doses of LSD and psilocybin mushrooms have shown that these substances are extremely safe.
What remains an unknown is what effects frequent microdosing could have on the body. This is why we recommend microdosing for no longer than a few months at a time.
One thing is for certain with microdosing, there is no risk of having a “bad trip” or experiencing intense psychedelic effects. Taking a microdose is the ideal way to be introduced to psychedelics safely and comfortably.
