Alternative wellness practices is one of the hottest trends in the world currently, and the practice of microdosing is often one of the most discussed. While users regularly claim a range of benefits that they discover since starting microdosing, there are also many misconceptions about it.
We thought we would take a deep dive into some of these common misunderstandings and provide a clearer perspective on the practice of microdosing.
Misconception 1: Are all mushrooms are psychedelic
This is a common misunderstanding from people just starting out on their microdosing journey. However, it is not true and the assumption that all mushrooms used in the practice are psychedelic couldn’t be further from the truth. Legal mushrooms like those we use here at Twist, such as Lion’s Mane, Reishi, and Chaga, do not induce any of those effects associated with the illegal counterparts and instead have been shown to potentially help with your overall health and cognitive function.
Misconception 2: Microdosing is illegal everywhere
Another question we’re often asked is whether the practice is illegal. The mushrooms that we use in our products are completely legal and permitted for use, just like the many other natural supplements and plant extracts used elsewhere in the wellness industry.
Misconception 3: Microdosing leads to psychedelic experiences
Microdosing is designed to elicit subtle effects that enhance your day-to-day activities, meaning you will not face any vivid visions or similar. Instead, the focus is all about helping you to harness your cognitive, emotional, and physical best, unlocking your creativity and sharpening your focus. That is why many people adopt the practice to help them in their professional work and personal lives.
Misconception 4: Microdosing is a shortcut to instant results
Microdosing is not a magical shortcut to an instant life transformation. While many people claim that it has helped them and provided a range of positive effects, they still need to put the time and effort into the task at hand. The results are a cumulative approach that can take time to start yielding results.
One thing to remember with microdosing is that consistency is key. Incorporating a regular routine in your life can see the benefits begin to unfold after a while, so adopt a realistic approach rather than expecting immediate and drastic changes.
Misconception 5: All legal mushrooms are suitable for microdosing
Not every mushroom is suitable for microdosing. Each variety will have its own distinct properties and the results can vary significantly. That is why it is important to make sure that you are using a reputable brand, as they will have done the necessary research and will only utilize the finest ingredients to ensure that you are able to get the best experience possible.
Misconception 6: Microdosing is a one-size-fits-all practice
Microdosing is a highly individualized practice, and what works for one person may not work the same way for another. Factors such as body weight, metabolism, and personal sensitivity play a role in determining the optimal dose. Take your time when starting out and make sure that you are listening to your body and how it reacts, only adjusting your routine when you feel comfortable with the practice.
