Frequently Asked Questions

Why Would I Use a Psychedelic?

Of course, you don’t have to. That first. But if you want to make big strides, it can be a very powerful therapeutic tool or tool for your personal and spiritual development. It is one of the most powerful and fastest tools that take you directly to your subconscious. Thoughts or behaviors that are unconscious or hidden become easier and quicker to see. More than just with coaching or therapy alone.

With What Substances Can You Microdose?

You can microdose with almost all (classic) psychedelics. Think of microdosing truffles, microdosing mushrooms, microdosing ayahuasca, microdosing LSD, and microdosing with cacti. You then microdose respectively with a low dose of psilocybin (truffles and mushrooms), caapi (ayahuasca), Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), or mescaline (hallucinogenic cacti such as San Pedro or Peyote). Of which the truffles, 1P-LSD, and caapi are legally available.

Can Everyone Microdose?
Since it involves very low doses, almost everyone can microdose. Unlike a full dose – and with proper use – you don’t have to worry about psychosis, a bad trip, or other experiences where you lose control.

There are a number of cases where microdosing is discouraged:

-In people with schizophrenia, psychosis susceptibility, paranoia/suspicion, or severe anxiety disorders;
-Persons under the age of 18;
-Pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding

Why Should I Get Coached While Microdosing?

Microdosing and coaching are the golden combo. The psychedelics give you a lot of insights and then it’s up to you to do something with them. Many people run into not knowing how to apply this in their daily lives. It may be that you can’t yet place the insights or don’t know what they mean or what you can do with them. With my coaching, I mirror you so that it becomes clearer for you and help you integrate all these insights and lessons into your life. I challenge you to get the most out of it. I am your support, your mirror, and your coach. Or maybe you don’t know how and where to start in the wonderful world of psychedelics. Then I help you on your way! So you can optimally experience the positive effects.

Which Psychedelic is Most Suitable for Me?

That depends on several factors; including your personal preferences, your wishes, your complaints, and ailments. During the coaching, this will be addressed and I will advise you on this.

Does Microdosing Go Along with Medications and Supplements?

Because it involves very low amounts of hallucinogens, microdosing often goes along with medications and supplements. The most popular psychoactive substances for microdosing are: psilocybin from truffles or mushrooms, LSD, and 1P-LSD. There is a list of medications and supplements that do not have negative interactions. You can check if your medication or supplement is on the list.

For psychedelics that contain MAO inhibitors, such as ayahuasca, more caution is needed. Especially in combination with other medications. In large amounts, these must not be combined at all with certain medications (such as other MAO inhibitors and SSRIs) and they do not go together with certain foods (for example: fermented foods, certain cheeses, red meat, and alcohol) and supplements.

Psychedelics are still psychedelics, so caution is advised. Also, little is known about long-term use. Therefore, it is advisable not to do a cure for more than 10 weeks, then take a long break of about 3 or 4 months (or longer), and use microdosing as a temporary tool. Consult your doctor if in doubt.

What About the Dosage/The Sweet Spot?

In microdosing, finding the right dosage is crucial to optimally experience the positive effects. This is very personal and is called the sweet spot. This is very precise and if you go over it, you will encounter challenges during microdosing. Want to know more about this? Check out this video.

What Risks are Associated with Microdosing?

Overall, the classic psychedelics, like magic mushrooms or truffles, LSD, and DMT, are among the safest drugs. Even safer than alcohol, weed, and tobacco.

These substances are not addictive in the traditional sense of the word. You cannot become physically dependent on them. But as with everything, it’s wise not to go overboard. Psychedelics can make you feel really good. Something we all want. Therefore, see it as a powerful, but temporary tool.

People with bipolar disorder may benefit from microdosing during the depressive phase, but better not microdose during a manic phase as the mania can be intensified.

In people with anxieties, microdosing can intensify the anxieties. And in people with paranoia symptoms, the paranoia and suspicion can increase.

Check out this information from the Global Commission on Drug Policy.

Is Microdosing Legal?

A number of psychedelics are legal including magic truffles, the caapi from ayahuasca, and 1P-LSD. A number are not legal, such as LSD and DMT and mescaline from cacti like San Pedro. You can legally buy a grow kit for magic mushrooms online. But as soon as they grow, they become illegal. In small amounts, the use of psychedelics for personal use is tolerated. The Microdosing Coach only works with legal substances.

Is the Psychedelic Included in a Program?

No. Together we look at which psychedelic is suitable for you. The Microdosing Coach has a lot of (legal) substances in-house making it quick and easy for you to start. The Microdosing Coach only works with legal means. See also the webshop.

I Want to Microdose at Work. They Are Mind-Altering Substances. Isn't That Dangerous?

In some professions, I advise against microdosing, for example, if you are a pilot or a professional athlete. In these professions, drug tests are regularly carried out.

If you do not belong to these professional groups and you want to microdose during work, it is important to find your own sweet spot. Once you have found it, then the substances actually increase your mental alertness, focus, and responsiveness. It is advisable to be guided so that you can microdose safely and prepared during work.

It also depends on the work you do and what your employment contract says. Doubtful? Contact me.

I Am Pregnant or Breastfeeding. Can I Microdose?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, microdosing is discouraged. The research is not yet so far that we know what it does to your (unborn) baby.

Do You Take the Psychedelic Every Day?

That depends on the substance. With most, you follow rest days. To prevent habituation, you leave 1 or 2 days in between. The most suitable protocol for you will be discussed during the coaching.

Can You Expect Side Effects?

In general, psychedelics have little to no side effects. Sometimes sensitive people experience mild nausea or stomach discomfort when taking psilocybin. Sometimes people get tired from microdosing or they get headaches: after all, you are intensely engaged in your personal development. That takes energy!

Does Microdosing Have a Placebo Effect?

Does microdosing really work? That’s a question I often get. There is currently still a lot of research being done on microdosing, but current findings suggest that the effects of microdosing go beyond just placebo. Studies point to changes in neurological processes and neurotransmitters that may be related to mood, cognition, and creativity. Although more research is needed for a full understanding, it appears that microdosing can indeed have real physiological and psychological effects, in addition to any placebo effects. Check out the reviews on my website or social media for microdosing experiences of others who have gone before you.

Can I Eat and Drink Everything During Microdosing?

In principle, you can continue to eat and drink everything. However, eating healthily is best. And alcohol and coffee can influence microdosing. Preferably do not drink alcohol during a microdosing course. And caffeine is less of a problem. Read the blog about caffeine. Maybe it’s obvious, but we’ll mention it here anyway: no other drugs during this phase. If you still want to take a full dose of a plant medicine, you need to stop the microdosing at least 3 days beforehand and after the full dose, it is only useful to restart microdosing 2 weeks later. But less is more! Be mindful of the use of these sacred means.
