Genius Focus Micro Dose 125MG Psilocybin W/ 225MG Lion’s Mane & Niacin
Paul Stamets is a mycologist (someone that studies Fungi) that came up with a protocol to increase mental performance. By using the benefits of Lion’s Mane, Niacin, and Psilocybin in combination to induce neurogenesis (creation of new brain cells) in our brains. Once thought to only occur during adolescence, studies have shown that this can occur in the adult brain as well. Lion’s Mane is a fungi that is a true nootropic that permanently enhances cognition by improving the brain’s ability to alter itself. By covering the nerve tissues with myelin, which is a crucial factor for the body to grow nerves. Niacin (Vitamin B3) is used in this microdose to stimulate the peripheral nervous system that allows the Lion’s Mane and psilocybin to reach the entire body. Niacin gives you a red flush when taken and this effect can be a bit uncomfortable and/or itchy but it is through this mechanism that the other active ingredients can flow to the different parts of your body.
This protocol is great for people who are looking to increase creativity and enhance mood but its primary function is to increase focus, cognition and awareness through neurogenesis. Great for newer users who first trying out microdosing or experience ones looking for a different supplement.
Based on the synergistic effects of both lion’s mane and psilocybin mushrooms on brain health, along with the potentials of Niacin (Vitamin B3) to assist in deliverability, Stamets hypothesizes that this stack will help with: creativity, cognition, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), regeneration of neurons, improving auditory and visual neurons, citizenship, (yes, generally make you a better member of society as a whole), and all forms of neuropathy (nerve damage).
Of course, psilocybin microdosing alone has been shown anecdotally to help with a variety of mental health and mental disorders and increase desirable states of mind from creativity to general enthusiasm about being alive. But Stamets claims that in combination with the other two ingredients of his stack, the power of the psilocybin mushrooms can be amplified and reinforced to make long-term changes in brain structure.
1 capsule every 3rd to 4th day, it is best to have a light meal before consuming.
Each capsule contains: 125MG of Organic Psilocybin With 112MG Lion’s Mane & 112MG Niacin
Every capsule we use is Vegan, Kosher.
Keep out of reach of children & pets.
All capsules have a shelf life of 1 year, if placed in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
higher doses of niacin cause an intense flushing or “prickly heat” sensation to the face and upper body. However! This happens at doses in excess of 500MG. We dose ours at a respectable 112MG of Niacin
If more than 2 capsules are consumed, you may experience anxiety, blurry vision, sleepiness or euphoric sensations. This is normal and will fade away in hours.

What Is Microdosing & Why You Should Try It
Essentially, microdosing is the practice of taking very small doses of a substance – in this case psilocybin mushrooms – over time with the aim of achieving the health benefits without experiencing the psychedelic or psychoactive effects. This might seem counterintuitive to some, who enjoy using psychedelics and exploring consciousness, but as we discussed these notions can seem overwhelming to some people. There are a growing number of studies that have shown the positive effects of psilocybin on patients suffering from severe mental trauma (PTSD) and persistent behavioral disorders (Depression, Schizophrenia). So, even if you’re not the type looking to catapult yourself into a journey across the cosmos by tripping on shrooms, you can still benefit from the natural healing properties of this one-of-a-kind fungus.
Microdoses are often one tenth or smaller than a typical dose of magic mushrooms, for example:
- A typical dose of psilocybin intended to induce psychedelic effects is around 3.5 grams or 1/8 oz
- This same dosage would be microdosed over X amount of days, depending on factors like your tolerance and weight (i.e. 0.2-0.3 grams per 1-3 days)
- Frequency of microdose depends on your level of need, but typically people consume their microdose of psilocybin once every 1-2 days, or once every 3 days
- Determining what microdose potency & frequency fits your needs can take some experimenting on your part, but just remember to start low and go slow with your microdoses and pay close attention to your reactions
If you’ve ever listened to podcasts or presentations from Paul Stamets, the “godfather of fungi”, you’ve probably heard all about “Neurogenesis” brought on by consuming mushrooms. Neurogenesis is basically the creation and mapping of new neurological pathways in the brain, more specifically the growth of new neurons in the brain. When you experience neurogenesis, your cognitive functions might improve, you may find yourself with more focus & energy, your demeanor may be more positive and extroverted, and most noticeably your creative juices are flowing. Many test groups have been reviewed and are currently undergoing research for the behavioral, mood, and personality influences of microdosing psilocybin. In most of the previous studies, participants who consumed psilocybin were found to have significantly positive mental, emotional and physiological responses – such as a more pronounced personality, greater mental acuity and a surge in creative thinking & behaviors. These controlled experiments have yielded limited data so far, but the results have been so exciting across many similar studies that a lot more attention is being given to microdosing psychedelics and their potential medical benefits.
It should be apparent by now that the potential benefits of psilocybin far outweigh the stigmatized risks. This isn’t just your Grandpa’s “Woodstock Shrooms” anymore, there’s a vast consumer base of people who rely on psilocybin medically, to normalize their brain function and assist their bodies in living a healthy, everyday life. Putting your personal biases aside is the tough but crucial first step to experiencing this life-changing fungus, and even if you don’t have a perceived need for psilocybin who doesn’t need a little extra mental, emotional and spiritual support?
HOW TO MICRODOSE:
Be Safe, Start Low, Go Slow
Like with any new substance in your daily routine, it’s very important to pace yourself and do your research. Before you get started, you need to understand your reasons for taking psilocybin, the results you’re seeking, what kinds of experiences you’ve had in the past, and being cognizant of the risks associated with consuming psychedelics. Once you’ve taken a good long review of your situation and what your goals are, it’s time to consume some shrooms!
What microdose or schedule should you try? We need to repeat what we said earlier: psychedelics affect people on an individual basis, and what kinds of results you’re looking for will determine how you microdose as much as your personal biology does. Nevertheless, as a guideline for microdosing we recommend starting with a microdose of 0.2 grams (for an average 180 lbs person) once every three days. As usual, taking psilocybin after a bit of food can help your body with digestion, so the morning after breakfast is an ideal period of the day. It’s also imperative that you try to avoid microdosing at night, as consumption of psilocybin has been known to interfere with sleep on occasion. So, to recap:
Day 1: Take your microdose, preferably early in the day
Day 2: No dose (after effects)
Day 3: No dose (normal, resting period)
Day 4: Microdose again, repeating with “No doses” for another two days, and so on.
What kinds of warning signs should you look out for? Lastly, but certainly not least, you need to understand how psilocybin can affect you and what you need to be careful about. Nobody wants to have a bad trip; be it an accidental psychedelic experience or even if you’re a veritable “psychonaut”. Sometimes you can do everything right and still experience some psychoactive effects, but the important thing to remember is to remain calm and stay in a safe place. If you are just starting out with a microdose, or you’re upping your usual amounts to experience enhanced benefits, remember that phrase: Be Safe, Start Low, Go Slow.
Being SAFE means taking your microdoses in a secure, familiar place and with supportive, trustworthy people around you. Starting LOW is also important because even if you think you understand how psilocybin affects you, any increased dose can significantly change your experiences so be sure to take your time and patiently up your dose, closely monitoring how the new dose makes you feel. Going SLOW cannot be overstated; most psychedelic episodes or issues with psilocybin occur because people are impatient and rush towards the results their seeking.
You may not notice the effects from microdosing psilocybin at first, or some people don’t notice their influence at all. This is completely normal – in fact, some microdosers only notice any changes to their physiological or neurological health when they STOP taking psilocybin. One of the major reasons for microdosing psychedelics is due to the fact that smaller, frequent doses can have profound health impacts without influencing or changing your day-to-day life.
