According to neurobiologist David Presti microdosing is considered safer than taking antidepressants and it is the most safe drug out there. The use of psychedelics has been around for ages. Unfortunately, not enough long term research has been mapped out yet. But if you are not part of a risk group, there is no particular health risk. If you want to start microdosing, we do wish to share with you our must follow golden rules when it comes to this hot topic.

Golden rules when microdosing

For starters, know your substance, know your source and know your dose. We might as well put it this way: make sure you know what you are using and who you buy it from. Aydoo is licensed to sell premium truffles and is always pleased to give you an answer to any questions you may have.

Second of all, microdosing doesn’t work for everyone and may contain risks for people who are under 18, for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not start microdosing when you or a first degree family member has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or psychosis.

Medicines such as tramadol or lithium are not to be combined with microdosing. Nor is it recommended when tapering off medication such as antidepressants. Also note that the use of premium truffles is not the solution when you are grieving.

Aydoo’s third rule is to do your research before combining microdosing and certain medications. James Fadiman has created a whitelist of medications and supplements that are now known not to cause any side effects when microdosing. This study is based on research with over 1.800 people. You can read all about it in our article on microdosing and medication.

Last but not least: add therapy and mindfulness practices to your routine. Mental health is important for all of us. Especially when you suffer from anxiety that has a remarkable influence on your life, or have recently come off antidepressants.

“The benefits far outweigh the risks.” - James Fadiman
