Are you curious about trying microdosing? You’ve landed in the right place. This post will explain what microdosing is, common benefits and concerns, and 6 myths you may have heard about this ancient practice.
What Is Microdosing?
Microdosing is the practice of consuming very small, sub-perceptual doses of psychedelic or non-psychoactive substances. This can involve things like LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), psilocybin (magic mushrooms), DMT, functional mushrooms, or other substances like certain plants.
With microdosing, the doses are far below the threshold that would induce any noticeable hallucinogenic effects or altered states of consciousness.
People who engage in microdosing often do so with the intention of experiencing cognitive, emotional, or creative enhancements without the intense psychedelic experiences that are associated with standard doses of these substances.
Ultimately, microdosing is about taking back your power through intentional healing. A microdose of plants can empower you to improve your health and well-being. But this is only possible with specific dosages, mixtures, and ingredients.
Also, this process has been used for centuries by ancient civilizations to heal people’s minds, bodies, and spirits.
If you’re new to microdosing, you may have some concerns and questions. So let me address the most common concerns I hear from those who want to get into microdosing.
The Quality and Purity of the Formula
Ensuring the quality and purity of microdosing products is paramount. We take rigorous measures to ensure that our products are accurately dosed and free from contaminants. You should be cautious when obtaining microdosing substances from sources that may not prioritize quality control, which is why you should start with Soul Drops.
People’s responses to microdosing can vary widely. But in the 5+ years Soul Drops has been operating, we’ve never heard of any adverse reactions.

6 Microdosing Myths That Have Been Busted
Okay, let’s cover 6 myths about microdosing and why they’ve been busted…
Myth #1: Microdosing psychedelics is addictive
First, Soul Drops uses non-psychoactive and non-addictive ingredients, so you won’t get addicted.
Second, there is little to no evidence that psychedelics are addictive, according to Health Canada. You can become tolerant of certain psychedelics, but most likely not addicted.
Myth #2: Microdosing will cause hallucinations or make you feel out of control
We use non-psychedelic, functional mushrooms and plants in our microdosing formulas. So you won’t experience any hallucinatory effects with our tinctures, only the health benefits from the plant itself.
Myth #3: Plants won’t actually heal me
No one is saying adaptogenic microdosing (which is what Soul Drops offers) will heal you. It does, however, put you in a frame of mind that can enable you to redirect your inner self. Our customers also report positive physical effects, like more energy, better sleep, and less stress.
Myth #4: Microdosing is unsafe
In the 5+ years Soul Drops has been operating, we haven’t seen any negative side effects in our customers. Plus, these sacred plants have been used by indigenous healers for thousands of years to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
Myth #5: Microdosing is simply a BAND-AID solution
Microdosing is not at all a surface-level solution. Quite the opposite. It can help take off the BAND-AID and heal the wound underneath. If done right and with high-quality formulas, microdosing can help you encourage a deeper connection with yourself, with others, and with the ups, downs, and mysteries of life. This will help you become a more active and conscious participant in your own life.
Myth #6: You have to microdose LSD or psilocybin for the benefits
Not true at all. At Soul Drops, we use non-psychoactive ingredients, and we definitely don’t use LSD or psilocybin. And the number of people who have told us how much better they feel is amazing.
Like Gail, who said:
“My intuition is spot on these days and I feel a contentment I have not felt since a child, I am also more sensitive to others emotions which has strengthened connections with friends and family.”
If you’re ready to try microdosing for yourself, I recommend the Divine Duo. It will help clear your head, release stress, and feel more connected to yourself and others.
