A Word About The Microdosing Institute

The Microdosing Institute is a beacon of knowledge and a global community dedicated to revolutionizing our understanding of psychedelics. Through education, research, and a strong sense of community, the institute has become a hub for people searching for microdosing guides and resources.

The Microdosing Institute was founded in 2017, sparked by the founders' fascination with Dr. James Fadiman's work. As the platform evolved, it became evident that microdosing held profound potential for holistic well-being and therapeutic benefit. 

This realization spurred the institute to actively engage in research, both independently and in collaboration with academic institutions, shedding light on the myriad effects of microdosing. The Microdosing Institute has been honored to have Dr. James Fadiman as an advisor, leading to the development of their protocol.

What’s the Microdosing Institute Protocol?

As with any microdosing protocol, it's important to follow a strict schedule, and the Microdosing Institute Protocol is no exception. Inspired by the Fadiman Protocol, it separates microdosing days and non-microdosing days. 

According to the Microdosing Institute Protocol, you should take your dose every two days, leaving one day to rest and observe any residual effects from the dosing day. This cycle should be repeated for at least four weeks. Experienced microdosers can extend this process to eight weeks.

The fundamental purpose of the Microdosing Institute Protocol is to create an effective and regulated microdosing program. This regularity is thought to improve the efficacy of microdosing, particularly when dealing with physical illnesses or mental disorders.

How To Microdose

Always take your dose in the morning, or after you wake up as some people report that microdosing at night may make it difficult to fall asleep. Taking our microdose early in the day allows you to observe the effects of your microdose throughout the whole day.

  • Day 1 - Microdose 
  • Day 2 - Rest
  • Day 3 - Microdose 
  • Day 4 - Rest

Repeat this cycle for four to eight weeks, and don't forget to take a break once the cycle is finished. The best practice is to take a two to four-week break to reset your tolerance.
