Microdosing mushrooms and smoking cannabis

More and more people are turning to microdosing to improve their quality of life. With more people microdosing mushrooms than ever before, a common question we’ve been hearing all the time is ‘Can I microdose mushrooms and consume weed at the same time?’

If you microdose mushrooms but also like to smoke cannabis, keep reading to find out everything you need to know about mixing your microdoses with marijuana.

Can You Mix Cannabis And Magic Mushrooms?

It is probably safe to mix magic mushrooms and cannabis. No significant interaction takes place between these two compounds when they are consumed at the same time. But that doesn’t mean that the effects may not overwhelm you.

Nevertheless, some people prefer to enjoy a bit of cannabis during or just before their shroom trip.

The calming and physically sedating effects of marijuana are great for alleviating the anxiety and nausea that can sometimes accompany a large dose of mushrooms. Additionally, some people feel that enjoying some weed with their mushrooms can enhance their psychoactive effects, leading to more intense euphoria, visuals, and sensations. Some basic psychoactive effects of psilocybin mushrooms include psychedelic “trips” and miscellaneous mind-awakening experiences.

Can I Microdose Mushrooms and Smoke Weed at the Same Time?

Mixing your microdose with cannabis is perfectly fine, but remember that the effects you experience may change significantly. Ingesting marijuana on top of magic mushrooms will likely enhance their psychoactive effects, making them stronger.

It’s important to be mindful of the effects that consuming cannabis will produce. For instance, mixing your microdose with a strong indica strain may result in a harder comedown with more sleepiness and drowsiness. Meanwhile, consuming a strong sativa may result in too much euphoria, making you more distracted and unfocused.

How much cannabis you consume is another very important factor to consider when deciding whether to mix cannabis with microdose mushrooms.

If you are microdosing mushrooms for the therapeutic benefits (as most people are), then it’s probably best to only consume a small amount of cannabis at the same time, maybe even a microdose.

Too much cannabis can overwhelm the effects of the mushrooms, hijacking the buzz and making it pretty pointless to have consumed the shrooms in the first place.

When mixing microdose mushrooms with cannabis, be sure to measure your portions to prevent getting “too baked”.

Taking just a small puff or two of cannabis will allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds, without too much of either. If a microdose of shrooms is not doing it for you anymore, and you don’t want to risk increasing your tolerance by taking more, consider adding in a microdose of weed instead.

CBD-rich products and strains may be a better option for mixing than products high in THC. Similarly to mushrooms, CBD is believed by many people to help with their anxiety and even depression. Since CBD has been shown to have anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects, a dose of CBD alongside your microdose of mushrooms may result in more significant and more noticeable anti-anxiety effects.

Know Your Mushrooms

Remember that, just like weed, different strains of magic mushrooms can produce somewhat different effects. While some strains are known for their intense visuals, others are known for their euphoric and speedy buzz or their high potency.

For example, one of the leading Canadian microdose mushroom brands “Bright Future” offers a variety of strains, each leading to their own unique effects:

This is the choice for you if your childhood dream of becoming an astronaut still lingers within you. Expect a psychedelic microdosing experience like no other.

Know what to expect from your microdose of shrooms and consider how it may mix with your weed. If the effects of your microdose aren’t quite what you expected, then switching your mushroom strain may be something to consider.

If you are used to stronger doses of cannabis, instead of microdosing, you may opt to ingest bits of mushrooms instead. Likewise, start with mellower strains such as the Metz Magic Mushroom, which tend to have lighter effects compared to a strong strain like the Blue Meanies shroom.

Should You Mix Your Microdose Mushrooms with Cannabis?

Just because you can doesn’t always mean you should! And while you can certainly mix a microdose of shrooms with cannabis, there may be some very good reasons for not doing so.

Many people have anecdotally supported the idea of microdosing mushrooms for therapeutic benefit. The sharing of their positive experiences has inspired others to try microdosing as well, sometimes leading to life-changing results.

But way fewer people have ever supported the idea of mixing your microdose with cannabis. That’s because a microdose of mushrooms can produce very specific effects with very specific therapeutic benefits. Adding marijuana into the mix will change the effects you experience and may ruin the therapeutic potential of your microdose.

With that being said, there’s no way to say for sure that mixing your microdose mushrooms with cannabis is the wrong thing to do for you. Everybody is different and it’s entirely possible that the effects you get from mixing these two incredible plants may be more beneficial for you and more in line with what you are seeking to experience.

But if you are going to experiment, it’s important to remember to always start low and go slow. Adding in too much cannabis too quickly may lead to an unpleasant trip and will make it harder for you to find your ideal dosage.

It may also be a good idea to keep a dosing journal. Keeping track of your doses and experiences will make it easier for you to figure out exactly what works best for you, and what you should avoid in the future.

So the next time you’re asking yourself, “Can I microdose mushrooms and weed at the same time?”, remember that you can, but also that you may be asking yourself the wrong question.
