Can Your Microdosing Sweet Spot Change Over Time?

Explaining the sweet spot for microdosing is like trying to explain a color. Language fails us somehow and analogies are often used as an optimistic but disappointing proxy.

Finding our sweet spot can be ambiguous enough, but then discovering that the goal post may eventually shift and relocate adds a whole new dimension to our microdosing practice.

First things first, let’s start at the beginning…

Microdosing IS

Microdosing is a very counterintuitive practice and so I will explain every step of the way.

Technically, microdosing is defined as: “the action or practice of taking or administering very small amounts of a drug to test or benefit from its physiological action while minimizing undesirable side effects.” 

In this article, I raise the case that the definition is incomplete for several reasons but one of them is the frequency of dosage.

Knowing when to microdose is called a protocol and there are several main types of protocols. These are not set in stone but a good starting point for beginners.

Some protocols recommend that we take breaks between doses, other protocols suggest microdosing a few days in a row. None of them suggest taking a dose 7 out of 7 days.

On days that we do not microdose, those are called Afterglow Days or as I like to say; the opposite of Hangovers!

Not only do we not microdose every day of the week, but microdosing is not a practice that we undertake every week of the year.

Typically, we tend to microdose for 6-8 weeks at a time. This is called a cycle. Once a cycle has been completed, we tend to take a break for 2-4 weeks, or longer. 

Understanding the Sweet Spot

In addition to all of the above, everyone has a preferred dosage. This dosage is unique to each of us and is only truly discovered via personal experimentation.

This perfectly unique dosage is what is called the Sweet Spot.

An ideal sweet spot dose means we do not feel intoxicated in any way but rather notice a level of emotional buoyancy. A lighthearted resilience and a newfound ability to cope.

It’s less intense than being anti-fragile and is more soft like feeling effortlessly centered and balanced. 

When we are in our sweet spot, life seems to slow down just enough for us to catch the next move right on time. Sometimes things slow down enough that we can make better and healthier decisions.

Aside from feeling balanced and centered. If we take more than our ideal sweet spot dose, we may not enjoy our microdosing experience at all.

Taking more than we need can induce drowsiness, fatigue, or anxiety. Always keep in mind that more is not always better. 

Started At The Bottom

Psilocybin will always give us what we need, and not what we ask for.

This is a very deep and philosophical thought but the point I am trying to make is that the person we were when we first started microdosing is not likely to be the person we are today.

That’s kind of the whole point of microdosing; evolving. 

A static state of affairs will never serve us well long term; at some point along the journey, our needs change accordingly.

Psilocybin is very intuitive. It will not override our system, rather it will buddy up and support us in our growth.

How Do I Know?

If you’ve been microdosing for a while and have always taken a certain amount but now you seem to experience less than desirable sensations, then, by all means, experiment with taking a smaller dose than before. 

Classic indicators are feeling anxious, sleepy, or tearful. These effects often subside when the dosage is reduced.

Several of our community members corroborate that with time, they needed less of a dose than they had initially started with, which I argue is all part of the experience.

Microdosing is a very intuitive practice and noticing when your microdosing sweet spot dose changes is an excellent indicator that you are intuitively attuned. Good for you!

Noticing how we feel is the first step toward healing and feeling better.

No matter what healing and growth practices you undertake, remember to be gentle, be curious, and be flexible.
