What dose of mushrooms should I take?


Andrew Huberman discussed effective and safe dosages of psilocybin, which include microdosing with 1-3 milligrams and larger doses ranging from 10-30 milligrams. This information reflects both on the natural content in magic mushrooms and synthetic psilocybin used in clinical settings.1

Andrew also highlighted the importance of dosage consistency and the variability in psilocybin concentration due to different strains of mushrooms and batch preparations. He touched upon the concept of so-called "heroic doses" but emphasized the importance of careful consideration of sourcing and dosage consistency.2

In another discussion, Andrew along with Robin Carhart-Harris, delved into the dosages used in clinical trials involving psilocybin and the confusion between microdosing versus macrodosing. Robin Carhart-Harris explained the definition of a microdose and the average amount of psilocybin found in a gram of magic mushrooms.3
