Microdosing with Lion's Mane and Magic Truffles: Everything you need to know

Microdosing with magic truffles is a fascinating subject. An additional addition are the medicinal mushrooms Lion's Mane and specific truffles such as the Happy Tuber Brain-e of Happy Capsfamily and the truffles from iMicrodose from Red Light Holland. How does this actually work? In this blog I answer the most frequently asked questions about microdosing in combination with Lion's Mane, according to Paul Stamets' synergistic stacking formula.

Why start microdosing magic truffles?

For many, a psychedelic trip with magic mushrooms is a way to make a spiritual connection with the universe and learn from it. If this appeals to you, be sure to check out our range of truffles. But if you are not interested in a psychedelic trip, but are looking for self-development, connection and growth, microdosing can be interesting. People with depression, anxiety problems, high levels of stress or difficulty connecting with others can benefit from microdosing.

Can you microdose with other types of magic truffles?

You may be wondering which truffles are best to use for microdosing. We recommend our special microdosage truffles: iMicrodose Truffles have been specially developed for this. They are very stable in terms of active substance, so with a microdose of 1 gram you get approximately 1 to 2 mg of psilocybin. It is also possible to microdose with other truffles or even magic mushrooms, but the dosage is less stable. This puts you at risk of ingesting too much or too little psilocybin, and you don't want that when you are microdosing.

What is Lion's Mane?

On our website we offer the medicinal mushroom Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus), available in capsules with interesting effects on cognitive functions. Or look at our Lion's Mane infused brownies or gummies from Mushroom Bakehouse. Lion's Mane has been used in Asia for hundreds, if not thousands, of years as a brain medicine and to protect brain functions.

On what schedule do you take microdosing truffles and Lion's Mane?

There are several ways to microdose psilocybin. Some customers Cannabis Bakehouse do this purely intuitively, without weighing their dose or following a schedule. However, we recommend following a fixed schedule and weighing your truffles. This allows you to work more scientifically and have more data to fall back on. The microdosing schedule that we recommend is the protocol that can be found at the bottom of the page!

What are the benefits of microdosing with magic truffles and Lion's Mane?

Not much is known in science yet about the effects of microdosing with psilocybin in combination with Lion's Mane. There are many stories about the benefits of microdosing with magic truffles and Lion's Mane.

Some advantages are:

  1. Better Thinking: Lion's Mane helps your brain work better. Together with truffles, it helps you concentrate better and learn things more easily.
  2. Healthier Resistance: It can strengthen your immune system. This means that it helps your body stay healthy and fight diseases.
  3. Happier Feelings: It can improve your mood. People who eat Lion's Mane sometimes feel less stressed and more satisfied.
  4. Sea energy: Using Lion's Mane and truffles often makes people feel better about themselves. That means more energy and a better feeling in general.

Can you drive after taking a microdose of truffles?

A microdose means that you take an amount of a psychedelic substance that allows you to perform normal daily activities. So you can definitely drive. Finding the right dose can be a quest. That is why we always recommend starting with a very low dose. Although 1 gram is a standard microdose, we recommend starting with 0,5 grams, half that amount! For some this is already enough, for most it is necessary to gradually increase the dose.

How to dose?

Paul Stamets' stacking protocol follows this cycle:

  • DAY 1 to 4: Stacking (truffles and lion's mane)
  • DAY 5 to 7: Rest – no intake
  • DAY 1 to 4: Stacking (truffles and lion's mane)
  • DAY 5 to 7: Rest

Repeat this for up to 1 month. Then, to reset, take 2 to 4 weeks of rest without taking these products.

If you follow this schedule, the dosages of the individual products are as follows:

  • Lion's Mane capsule: 2 pieces per day during the microdose days (total 800mg)
  • Microdosing truffles: 0.5 to 1 portion per day during the microdose days (1 portion = 1 gram)
