Psilocybin mushrooms and capsules containing ground psilocybin for microdosing

Potential Benefits of Microdosing

Microdosing with psychedelics has become a popular technique to improve creativity, productivity and focus. There are a variety of psychedelics that can be microdosed, but LSD and psilocybin mushrooms are most commonly used.

Benefits of microdosing with psychedelics may include:

1. Improving creativity and productivity.

2. Enhancing focus and concentration.

3. Boosting mood and overall well-being.

4. Reducing anxiety and depression.

5. Increasing sense of self-awareness and understanding.

6. Helping to treat addiction.

7. Providing spiritual insights and transcendent experiences.

Psychedelics, in general, tend to produce wide-ranging effects that often depend on the dose taken. A small dose of a psychedelic substance might produce subtle changes in perception, creativity, or overall well-being, while a higher dose might result in more dramatic changes.

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the use of psychedelics for enhancing productivity, creativity, and overall well-being. This is likely due to the wide range of benefits that have been reported from using psychedelics in moderation.

There is a great deal of anecdotal evidence supporting the use of psychedelics for enhancing productivity and creativity. However, there is also some scientific evidence to support this claim. A study published May 2002 concludes that psychedelics can act as potential catalysts of scientific creativity and insight.

LSD self-portraits

A study published in the journal Psychopharmacology found that participants who were given a sub-perceptual dose of psilocybin (the active compound in magic mushrooms) showed increased productivity and creativity two weeks after taking the dose. A 2020 study concluded: Our results suggest the perceived benefits associated with microdosing greatly outweigh the challenges. Microdosing may have utility for a variety of uses while having minimal side effects. Double-blind, placebo-controlled experiments are required to substantiate these reports.

A study published in 2022 suggests that psilocybin microdosers demonstrate greater observed improvements in mood and mental health at one month relative to non-microdosing controls.

Another study, published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs in 2022, found that LSD can improve problem-solving skills and increase creativity. The study is entitled, “LSD and creativity: Increased novelty and symbolic thinking, decreased utility and convergent thinking”.

Psychedelics, in general, seem to have a wide range of potential benefits, including but not limited to:

– Increased productivity
– Increased creativity
– Improved mental clarity
– Improved overall well-being
– Increased understanding of oneself and the world around them
– Increased empathy for others
– Increased sense of connection with the universe

However, it is important to note that psychedelics are not right for everyone. Some people may experience negative side effects, such as anxiety, paranoia, or panic attacks.

Psychedelics should always be used with caution and in moderation. It is important to start with a low dose and increase the dose gradually if desired effects are not achieved. Psychedelics should not be used frequently, as this can lead to tolerance and negative side effects.


Microdosing with psychedelics can have profound benefits, including reducing anxiety, depression, and improving moods. It can also increase creativity, productivity, and focus.
