*Magic Mushroom Dosage Guidelines:

  • Microdosing (0.1-0.5g) of psilocybe cubensis is common in therapy and has minimal effects, but can aid long-term.
  • Low dose (1g) causes euphoria and heightened senses.
  • A medium dose (1.75g) produces some hallucinations and stronger euphoria.
  • A high dose (3.5g) results in strong visual/sensory distortions.
  • Doses over 3.5g are not recommended by 1UpMaps and should only be attempted by experienced users.

Combing Cacao with Psilocybin Mushrooms

People combine cacao and magic mushrooms for several reasons.

Enhancing the effects: Cacao contains a mild stimulant called theobromine which can enhance the effects of magic mushrooms and amplify the overall experience.

Mellowing out the trip: The alkaloids in cacao can have a grounding effect, making the experience more manageable and less overwhelming.

Synergy of the two plants: Some people believe that the combination of the spiritual qualities of cacao and the psychoactive effects of magic mushrooms creates a unique and powerful synergy that can lead to deeper spiritual experiences and personal growth.

Always consult with a medical professional before combining substances and make sure to educate yourself on their effects, proper dosing, and potential risks.
