Macrodosing

Macrodosing

Macrodosing consists of large doses of psilocybin which induces a psychedelic state in which the client experiences increased cognitive flexibility, a liberation of bottom-up information flow along with a decrease in activity in the frontal temporal lobe, leading to what is known as an ego death or dissolution. In this psychedelic state, the client enters a space in which the conscious mind releases its grip over the unconscious mind thereby allowing the client to become aware of its unconscious patterns and come to terms with their behaviors.

 

There are three phases to the macrodosing protocol.
