How do programmers in Silicon Valley cope with the stress of the labour that comes with a job in the tech industry? They microdose magic mushrooms to improve performance, think creatively and maintain better relationships with their coworkers. They get a change of perspective.
Micro-dosing psychedelics has become more mainstream, as people are discovering that when they micro-dose, they feel calmer, less anxious, and generally clearer in their problem-solving abilities. Micro-dosing allows these high-tech professionals to experience the positive effects that psychedelics provide, without the hallucinations that would inhibit work productivity. So, when the research was conducted and the data was in, revealing the benefits of small doses of hallucinogenic substances like psilocybin or LSD, It didn’t take long for the use of hallucinogens to begin to rise.

Micro-doses of Psilocybin Make for Lower Stress Levels
With 60% of all tech workers admitting to burn-out, lowering stress levels becomes a major reason for techies to microdose magic mushrooms. In the centre of the hustle culture of Silicon Valley, filled with super achievers looking to start the next great thing, the executives that are 35 and older are trying everything from fasting, cryotherapy, and meditation retreats, to Botox and facelifts, in an effort to stay competitive and relevant.
Attempts to stay young and relevant are reaching extreme levels. White-collar professionals are now turning to magic mushrooms to boost their work performance. This work world favours youth for several reasons. Not only does management believe younger employees can easily replace the older ones for less money, but they also believe that older employees are not as apt to fit into corporate culture, and with the focus on social media, appearing relevant is also vital to their customers. So, the emphasis on youth is reaching new levels, and so are the levels of anxiety.
The level of competition is increasing to the point where microdosing magic mushrooms are now providing relief for high-tech workers of many ages and providing a better mental outlook.
How Silicon Valley is Turning to Shrooms
Many Silicon Valley executives have begun viewing psychedelics as practical tools for enhancing abilities to solve complex problems and are now microdosing magic mushrooms instead of taking Adderall. These professionals ingest a small amount of either LSD or psilocybin mushrooms, which are enough to improve focus, performance, and creative thinking, but not enough to cause hallucinations. Microdosing must be carefully calculated, and these doses do differ from person to person.
A microdose amount depends on several variables, like which psychedelic drug you are ingesting, your biomass, or what else you have ingested, be that food or drink. Generally, microdosing substances like psilocybin or LSD is about one-twentieth to one-tenth a dose that would result in unproductive and undesirable psychoactive effects. For the average person that would be about 5 to 10 micrograms of LSD or 0.1 to 0.4 grams of psilocybin mushrooms.
Silicon Valley microdosers stick to a weekly schedule to manage their microdosing levels efficiently and effectively, and to avoid building a tolerance level. This requires a bit of planning. Here’s a typical schedule: Starting on day one, they’ll take their first microdose in the morning to achieve the initial effect. On day 2, there is no microdose at all, experiencing the aftereffects from the day before. There is also no microdosing on day 3, their entire day delivers no effects at all. Then, another microdose again on day 4 in the morning.
We at Zoomies recommend microdosing magic mushrooms using capsules, powder, or isolated psilocybin liquid. It is important to be able to microdose a precise amount of psilocybin.
If you approach microdosing properly, you can decrease your anxiety, elevate your mood, and improve your interpersonal interactions. Zoomies can help you make that happen. Contact us.
