We've been crafting wellness formulas for years, inspired by the teachings of experts such as Paul Stamets, Michael Pollan, and Dr. James Fadiman. Our goal was to enhance cognitive function and promote a sense of connectedness without the anxiety some nootropics can bring. To achieve this, we balanced brain-boosting mushroom adaptogens with calming botanicals like Ashwagandha and Holy Basil, ensuring they all work together harmoniously.
This product is designed for individuals looking to improve their connection with themselves, others, and the environment. It's ideal for those aiming to live mindfully, remain present, and lessen anxiety. Microdosing can offer benefits like enhanced creativity, improved focus, and better emotional balance.
However, if you have heart conditions, high blood pressure, or are sensitive to stimulating effects, it's advised to consult your doctor before using.
We offer multiple dosing routines for our product:
1 Day on, 2 days off: This involves taking a microdose every third day. For example, dose on Day 1, no dose on Days 2 and 3, then dose again on Day 4, and so on.
4 on, 3 off: 4 days on, followed by three days off.
Every Other Day: As the name suggests, you'd take a dose one day and skip the next, continuing this alternating pattern.
However, at Medicine Box, and the surveying of 100s of customers on what works best; we advise starting with the One Day On, Two Days Off Routine for the first 15 days. This means taking a dose on Day 1, then no doses on Days 2 and 3, and repeating this cycle.
After 15 days, evaluate your experience. Utilize tools like our Micro Tracker and the Mushroom Manifesto for insights. For further advice and experiences, our Medicine & Mentorship community is an excellent resource.

An adaptogenic mushroom is a type of fungus that is believed to help the body resist various kinds of stress, be it physical, biological, or emotional. Adaptogens, in general, are substances that balance and stabilize physiological processes, enhancing the body's resilience. Some well-known adaptogenic mushrooms include Reishi, Chaga, Cordyceps, and Lion's Mane. They are often used in traditional medicine practices for their potential to boost the immune system, improve energy and stamina, and support mental clarity and calm.
Microdosing is the practice of taking a sub-perceptual dose of a psychedelic substance, typically LSD or psilocybin. The goal is not to have a full-blown psychedelic experience, but to experience subtle changes in mood, cognition, and perception that can improve well-being and productivity.
While we still don't fully understand the mechanisms, research suggests that microdosing may work through a couple of key pathways. It's believed that psychedelics like LSD and psilocybin interact with the brain's serotonin 2A receptors, which are implicated in cognitive flexibility and mood regulation. There's also the theory of neuroplasticity - microdosing might promote the formation of new neural connections, enhancing learning and creativity.
The most common substances used for microdosing are LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and psilocybin mushrooms, although others, such as mescaline and DMT, can also be used. The choice of substance depends on a variety of factors including legality, availability, and personal preference.
Depression is associated with rigid thinking patterns and a lack of neural plasticity. Microdosing could potentially disrupt these patterns, making it easier for individuals to break free from depressive cycles. Furthermore, by promoting neuroplasticity, microdosing might help the brain form healthier neural connections. Recent studies have indicated that many people report improvements in mood and overall quality of life when microdosing.
Anxiety can also be ameliorated through microdosing, as reported by several anecdotal accounts. By modulating the serotonin system, which plays a significant role in anxiety, microdosing might help promote a sense of calm and ease. However, it's important to approach with caution as it can also potentially amplify pre-existing anxiety for some individuals.
Microdosing is believed to enhance creativity by promoting divergent thinking, a style of thinking that allows for more creative problem-solving. This might be due to the increased neuroplasticity and changes in serotonin signaling, leading to the formation of novel connections and ideas.
The typical microdose of LSD is between 5-20 micrograms, while for psilocybin it's about 0.1-0.3 grams, though this can vary depending on individual sensitivity and response. It's always recommended to start with a lower dose and gradually adjust as needed.
A regular dose of psychedelics produces a full psychedelic experience or 'trip', characterized by profound changes in perception, thought and mood. On the other hand, a microdose is sub-perceptual, meaning it doesn't cause these overt changes. The goal with microdosing is not to 'trip', but to enhance normal functioning.
Though still in the research phase, there is hope that microdosing could assist with PTSD. By fostering neuroplasticity and helping disrupt entrenched patterns of thinking and reacting, microdosing might help individuals with PTSD to process trauma in a safer, more controlled environment than larger doses.
Anecdotal reports suggest that microdosing can enhance empathy and open-mindedness, which can positively influence personal relationships. It might help individuals to be more present, understanding and connected in their interactions with others.
Microdosing psychedelics may help improve symptoms of ADHD by promoting focus, reducing impulsivity, and enhancing mood stability. However, research on this topic is limited and individual experiences can vary greatly. Always consult with a healthcare provider for personalized advice.
The onset of effects varies with the substance used. With LSD, you may start to notice subtle changes within 30 to 60 minutes after ingestion, while with psilocybin it might take slightly longer, typically around 45 to 90 minutes. These effects can last anywhere from 4 to 12 hours, depending on the substance and dosage.
While microdosing is generally considered safe, some users report side effects like restlessness, anxiety, and over-stimulation. Physiological effects might include mild changes in heart rate and blood pressure. As with any substance, the likelihood and severity of side effects can be influenced by set (mindset), setting (environment), dosage, and individual factors.
No, microdosing is not supposed to produce hallucinations. The doses are sub-perceptual, meaning they're below the threshold that would cause significant alterations in perception or consciousness.
Some evidence suggests that tolerance can develop to the effects of psychedelics. To mitigate this, many people follow a microdosing regimen that includes regular breaks, typically a day or two between doses. This schedule allows the body time to eliminate the substance and helps to minimize the development of tolerance
Early research and anecdotal reports suggest that microdosing might help manage chronic pain. This could be due to psychedelics' effects on the way the brain processes pain signals, and their ability to enhance mindfulness and alter perception of pain. However, more research is needed in this area.
While there's no one-size-fits-all schedule, many people follow the 'Fadiman Protocol', proposed by psychologist James Fadiman. This involves taking a microdose every third day (two days off in between doses). However, the schedule can be adjusted based on individual responses and needs.
Microdosing could potentially aid in addiction recovery by disrupting habitual thought and behavior patterns, enhancing mindfulness, and boosting overall mood. Some users have reported reduced cravings and an increased ability to resist harmful substance use.
There's limited research on the interaction between microdosing and antidepressants. Some psychedelic compounds could interact with certain antidepressants, potentially reducing their effectiveness. It's crucial to consult with a healthcare provider before beginning a microdosing regimen if you're on any medication.
While microdosing has potential mental health benefits, it's not without risks. In some individuals, especially those with a predisposition to certain conditions, microdosing might potentially trigger or exacerbate symptoms. It's always advised to discuss these concerns with a healthcare provider before starting a microdosing regimen.
Microdosing might influence sleep patterns due to the stimulating effects of substances like LSD or psilocybin. Some users report increased vividness of dreams and improved sleep quality, while others might experience difficulties in falling asleep, particularly when they microdose later in the day.
Microdosing typically involves taking about 1/10th to 1/20th of a recreational dose of a psychedelic substance. The specific amount can vary depending on the substance, the individual's body weight, metabolism, and sensitivity to the substance. Personal experimentation under careful conditions is often necessary to find the optimal dosage.
Potentially. Psychedelics can interact with certain medications, particularly those affecting serotonin levels in the brain. It's crucial to consult with a healthcare provider before beginning a microdosing regimen if you're on any medication.
Some early research and anecdotal evidence suggest that microdosing might help manage symptoms of PTSD by promoting neuroplasticity and aiding in the processing of traumatic memories. However, individuals should seek professional guidance when considering this approach, as the potential for retraumatization exists.
Due to lack of research and potential risks, it's generally recommended not to use psychedelics during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
Psychedelics are generally considered to have a low potential for physical dependence or addiction. However, psychological dependence, characterized by a perceived need or desire to continue use, is a potential risk that should not be ignored.
Legality of microdosing varies greatly around the world and depends on the specific substance being used. It's important to know the laws in your region before considering a microdosing regimen.
Some individuals report subtle changes in personality with long-term microdosing, such as increased openness and creativity. However, these effects are usually mild and gradual.
Keeping a journal can be helpful for tracking changes in mood, cognition, and behavior over time. It's also useful to periodically check in with a trusted therapist or mentor to reflect on any changes.
While microdosing is sub-perceptual and should not significantly impair motor skills or cognition, it's recommended to avoid driving or operating machinery until you're familiar with the effects. Safety should always be a priority.
Many users report enhanced creativity while microdosing. This could be due to increased neural connectivity, heightened perception, or improved flow state. However, experiences can vary greatly between individuals.
Anecdotal reports suggest that microdosing may enhance emotional intelligence by increasing empathy and emotional awareness. Some individuals might find it easier to identify and manage their emotions, as well as understand the emotions of others.
Most people prefer to microdose in the morning to leverage the potential benefits throughout the day and avoid possible sleep disturbances. However, the optimal time may depend on the individual's schedule, lifestyle, and specific goals for microdosing.
If you experience an adverse reaction, it's recommended to discontinue use and consult with a healthcare professional. It's also beneficial to have a support network or trusted person aware of your microdosing practice who can provide assistance if needed.
If you inadvertently take a larger dose, stay calm and find a safe, comfortable space. Reach out to a trusted individual who is aware of your practice, and remember that the effects will pass with time. Always start with a smaller dose and adjust gradually to avoid such incidents.
To maximize benefits, consider integrating mindfulness practices, healthy diet and lifestyle habits, regular exercise, and sufficient rest. Microdosing can be viewed as a tool that enhances these fundamental health-promoting behaviors.

Yes, it is possible for psychedelics to be detected in a drug test. However, standard drug tests typically do not screen for substances like LSD or psilocybin.
If you're not noticing any effects, you may need to adjust your dosage, schedule, or the substance used. However, keep in mind that the effects of microdosing are often subtle and may be more noticeable over time with regular practice. Consulting with a professional can be helpful in these situations.
While body size can influence the effects of many substances, the effects of psychedelics do not always correlate directly with body weight. However, individuals with a larger body mass may require a slightly higher dose. Each person's sensitivity can vary, and a period of adjustment may be necessary to find the optimal dose.
Anecdotal reports suggest that microdosing might help manage symptoms of ADHD by improving focus and reducing impulsivity. However, each individual's response can vary, and it's crucial to approach this with caution, preferably under professional guidance.
Microdosing involves taking sub-perceptual doses, meaning the doses are too small to produce hallucinations or other significant alterations in perception, cognition, or mood. If these effects occur, the dose is likely too high.
Psychedelics like LSD and psilocybin function as serotonin agonists, meaning they bind to and activate serotonin receptors in the brain. This can lead to enhanced mood and cognition during the microdose period. However, regular microdosing might lead to changes in serotonin receptor density or sensitivity over time, about which research is ongoing
Although rare, there have been cases where psychedelics have triggered psychotic episodes, especially in individuals with a personal or family history of psychotic disorders. It's crucial to approach microdosing with caution, and individuals with such history should consult with a healthcare professional before considering microdosing.
Some psychedelics can cause modest increases in heart rate and blood pressure. Therefore, individuals with heart conditions should consult with a healthcare professional before considering microdosing.
Many individuals report improvements in personal growth, self-awareness, and self-improvement while microdosing, likely due to increased introspection, emotional clarity, and cognitive flexibility. However, microdosing should be complemented with other personal growth practices for best results.
