As you might expect, the safety associated with using magic mushrooms long term has a lot to do with the dosage. While certain dosages that are strong enough to cause altered states of consciousness have been known to cause long term behavioral problems as well as flashbacks and hallucinations, the jury is still out on the practice of microdosing – which is considered to be far safer and more targeted than using psilocybe cubensis mushrooms for recreational purposes.
Studies have found that the long term neural effects of the substance of psilocybin can lead to reduced amygdala response and conflicting emotional responses. However, it has been noted that some of these effects fade with time, if the patients stop using the substance or reduce its use to a great extent. The best place to buy psilocybe cubensis spores with purity standards in place to continue research studies is Sacred Mushrooms.
For microdosing, this isn’t really much of a problem. The amounts used as part of an effective microdosing strategy are far lower than what recreational magic mushroom use might entail. The focus of microdosing is to obtain small but significant long term changes in emotional response, behavior and cognitive response, in order to improve creativity and cognition and lower the effects of anxiety and depression.
A lot of people who have used microdosing for a long time claim it has only brought them positive changes, and it has transformed their lives significantly. When used properly, they claim that microdosing will still allow you to function normally without worrying about altered states of consciousness or cognitive problems.
