Paul Stamets recommended microdosing protocol. Take a microdose every day for four days, then three days off.
300mg – Dried Psilocybe
50mg – Ginger Root Extract
Psilocybin’s main effects is to stimulate a serotonin receptor called “5-HT2A” located in the prefrontal cortex, which leads to two important results:
- The production of “Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor” (BDNF), a protein that is “like Miracle-Gro for your brain,” according to Waldman. BDNF stimulates growth, connections, and activity. 
- The increased transmission of “Glutamate,” a neurotransmitter responsible (in part) for important brain functions such as cognition, learning, and memory. 
- Dampen the activity of an often over-used part of our brain called the “Default Mode Network” (DMN).  The DMN is responsible for many mental activities, including day-dreaming, self-reflection, and thinking about the past or the future
- Psychedelics could be used to combat depression and anxiety—as well as lead to insights and creative perspectives that may otherwise remain inaccessible.
