WHAT THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE STARTING

 

Now that you have a clearer idea about why you are wanting to microdose and what you hope to get out of it, its time to learn our tips and tricks to getting started.

 

 

Choosing a type 

Your first choice is deciding whether you want pre-dosed capsules, or to dose yourself with a raw extract or tincture. Our capsules and tincture are blended with other adaptogens and functional mushrooms while the extracts are pure plain kanna. 

 

our capsules blends are;

 The Tincture

Choosing a protocol

There are many different protocols for microdosing. While we recommend initially trying 5 days in a row and two days off, you can experiment with other routines. Read our guide about microdosing protocols here.

 

The importance of integration  

  • Be clear on your intentions: Set your intentions for your microdosing experience, such as enhancing creativity or reducing anxiety.
  • Avoid mixing substances: Avoid combining microdosing with other substances, including alcohol and recreational drugs.

 

There is no one size fits all approach 

The effects of microdosing vary person to person. Microdosing for many people does not yield immediate, dramatic changes. Some people expect instant results and become discouraged if they don't experience them. Due to the nature of microdosing, it is not going to produce altered states of consciousness, yet there are many things it continues to do “in the background”. Patience and a longer-term perspective are important. 

 

 

HOW AND WHEN TO CONSUME THE MICRODOSE

 

Step 1: Prepare

Make sure that whenever you take kanna it is on an empty stomach- at least three hours since your last meal. This is so that it can be best absorbed into the body. The most popular time to take a microdose is first thing when you wake up and then wait 30 minutes to eat. If you are using the dream or relax blends then we reccomend taking these in the late afternoon.

 

Step 2: decide on dosage

The standard microdose of kanna is two capsules per day but it is not perfect for everyone, some people prefer just one. It is common for some users to do slightly less and others slightly more. It should always however be sub perceptual, meaning you should not conciously feel a microdose. 

 

Step 3: Consuming the dose

To take the dose you simply wash down the capsules with some water, the tincture is sublingual, and the extracts you can either dissolve in the mouth or make a tea with. 

 

PRECAUTIONS

  • While the evidence for the benefits of microdosing is increasing, it's essential to keep in mind that it is not a cure-all and should be utilised as an additional element to complement a healthy lifestyle

 

  • You should always consult with a medical professional before beginning 

 

  • Individuals who are currently taking medications, especially SSRIS are urged to consult their health care provider as there are can be increased risks for this demographic.

 

  • If you start to develop undesired side effects that are negatively impacting your life or others around you then it is advisable to stop microdosing

 

  • It is important to take regular breaks form microdosing to reduce your tolerance to psilocybin. We reccomend to do it once every 3 days for a maximum period of two months and then a two week break.
