Macrodosing is taking a substantial amount of psychedelic medicine that will produce psychoactive effects, allowing the individual to “journey” into non-ordinary states of consciousness, in which they may have a peak experience that is transformative and healing.

How to macrodose

Eat the whole mushroom(s).

Wash it down with lemon water to speed up onset time and increase potency.

Make a tea.

Chop up the mushrooms and steep in boiling water for 5 minutes. Add lemon to speed up onset time and slightly increase potency.

Recommendations

Eat lightly. Fats can interfere with the onset time.

Dose properly. Take at least 0.60g to begin with in order to experience psychoactive effects. If you wish to further stack the mushrooms to extend the trip, you can continue to do so after taking the initial low dose amount. Not taking enough in the first dosage will lead to frustration and a potentially harmful situation in which you over-dose your intended amount to force the onset. You may experience a later sudden psychoactive onset much more intensely than expected.

Take with citrus. We recommend lemon water or squeezing lemon into your tea.

Set your intention for the journey.

Always send gratitude to the mushrooms for their guidance and ask that they show you what you need to know.

prep your setting

Make it a Pre-Journey Ritual...
It’s important to have a comfortable, quiet, safe space to lay down and journey. Think of this as your container or womb. You will be able to let go and surrender into the journey more easily if you feel nurtured and safe. 

The ritual aspects of this are important, so make your space prep into your own ritual. Do what feels good to you. There are no rules. A few suggestions –

1. Light a candle

2. Prepare the mat/bed/couch where you will lie down. Surround it with comfortable blankets and pillows. 

3. Bring in crystals, images, tarot/oracle cards, objects that are protective and nurturing. These could represent your intention.

4. Burn some incense to bring in the elements of Fire, Air, Earth

5. Smudge some sage to clear the space of negative energy (always smudge while holding the intention of clearing negative energy within your heart)

6. Communicate your gratitude to the mushrooms for their guidance. Be creative with how you send thanks.

Prep your (mind)set

Setting Your Intention...

Spend some quiet time pre-journey thinking about what you want to receive from the experience. Here are some reflection prompts to help guide you:

1. Lately I have been feeling… (emotionally and physically within the body)

2. I want to show up in my life with more... (ie. With more compassion, more joy, deeper sense of freedom, surrender, etc.)

3. The shadows that I know I have been confronting recently are…

4. After the journey, I want to feel...

integration is key

Integration is a necessary part of any psychedelic journey. Many believe the journey to be the point of the psychedelic experience, but it is the processing that occurs post-trip that allows real transformation to happen. Without this period of stillness and integration, you are not harnessing the full potential of your psychedelic experience.
