How Microdosing Psilocybin Mushrooms Help Me Overcome Depression
My experience with Psilocybin Mushrooms
I had a love/hate relationship with magic mushrooms in my mid-20s because of all the different trips I experienced.

I hit the jackpot with my dealer because she happened to be a microdosing mushroom expert AKA, my shaman. She told me how she had a couple of clients who tried microdosing and how microdosing helped with their depression. I told her I was interested in working with her and seeing how we could make this work.
She took me in and gave me the lowdown on what to do. She gave me a month’s supply of chocolates filled with 0.25 grams of shrooms. In…
