How to make capsules with mushroom powder for microdosing

Capsules with mushroom powder is the most convenient way for taking mushroom microdoses. This method saves your time and helps to take constant dosage every time, that is very important.

For a conscious microdosing follow the schedule and take a break between microdosing courses. If you don't know exactly your own microdose you can prepare capsules of different weights and determine it experimentally during your calibration period.

Before making capsules for microdosing many questions arise. Let's figure out!

How much mushroom powder contains in one capsule? Capsule size for mushroom microdosing

#00 or #0 or #1 are optimal sizes

The weight can be adjusted based on your individual microdose. It's easy to guess if you need 0.4 grams, then prepare 2 capsules 0.2g each.

What capsules to choose for mushroom microdosing?

Stomach-soluble or intestine-soluble? Gelatin or Vegetarian?

There are capsules soluble in the stomach and capsules soluble in the intestines. For mushroom microdosing choose stomach-soluble capsules, as absorption of alkaloids with the stomach is a standard practice for microdosing.

Vegetarian or Gelatin capsules is up to you. It doesn't influence on microdosing effects at all. Choose according to your individual preferences and lifestyle.
