About Elevate Blend
Elevate Blend Ingredients
Elevate Microdose Blend is our most popular psilocybin (shroom) microdose blend here at Faded. The Elevate blend is formulated off the classic “scooby snack” formula, which usually includes psilocybin mushroom and lion’s mane. Faded offers a variety of psilocybin microdose blends, which can be found here.
Lion’s Mane, aka the “Bearded tooth fungus”, or “Pom Pom Mushroom” is an incredible health supplement. This mushroom has a rich antioxidant content which can enhance energy levels by increasing cellular communication in the body.
In addition, this spectacular fungi is famous for its assistance in neural regeneration and development of the brain by promoting nerve growth factor production (NGF). These are the cells which aid the processing and transmission of information in the brain. Higher levels of NGF production avert cell damage, and protects the brain from developing neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Studies with increased NGF production have shown improved short-term memory, photographic memory and an overall improvement of cognitive functions.
Furthermore, those suffering from anxiety, irritability and depression have had symptoms relieved due to the effect of Lion’s Mane on the body’s Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). This is the system primarily in charge of our Fight or Flight response.
Individuals with Type 2 Diabetes and certain blood sugar irregularities have had positive effects by using Lions Mane. This is due to the mushrooms apparent ability to lower insulin sensitivity, although this needs to be studied further
Lions Mane offers anti-inflammatory properties which can help with gastro-intestinal disorders such as IBS, IBD, Crohn’s disease, and colitis. Its anti-bacterial properties have also shown promising effects on digestive ailments such as leaky gut syndrome.
Lastly, Lion’s Mane can lower the risk factors for heart disease and potentially reduce incidence of cancer.
Effects of Elevate Microdose Blend
The effects of Elevate Microdose Blend are heavily subjective, and affected by external and internal factors. Two prominent external factors that affect psilocybin experiences are the environment, and the people that surround you. Two important internal factors are your mental state, and expectations.
Common effects reported from ingesting psilocybin are euphoria, excitement, time distortion, and mild to intense visual and other sensory enhancements. Nature may seem more alive, or seem to be breathing, and art and music may have a different and more profound effect on you. Introspective thoughts deepen and you may view reality in a much different, objective manner. Other reports detail deeper spiritual and social connections.
Where you are when you experience the effects of psilocybin matters, a lot. Here at Faded, we strongly suggest you pick an environment which feels like a safe place to you. If this is your first time using psilocybin and the experience is completely new, this is of paramount importance. Do not put yourself in a position of heightened stress, because this can lead to negative effects. Make sure you don’t have to perform tasks which involve a high level of responsibility, such as driving a car. Not only is this extremely dangerous, but high levels of stress can tip your mental state to a darker place. Do surround yourself with colours, art, music, nature, warmth, laughter and love.
The people which surround you is a very important factor. In an ideal situation, surround yourself only with people you know very well, ideally good friends or family. If you are microdosing, it’s also a great option to do this alone, or with a partner or close friend, when you have a very regular day ahead of you with no surprises. Having the right people around helps you feel safe and comfortable with expressing yourself in this altered state of consciousness. If you are completely new to psilocybin, it is good to have someone around you trust who is not under the influence of any substances, but has experience with psychedelics, to help lead you through it.
Although psilocybin can be extremely valuable in a clinical, therapeutic session with supervision, being in a troubled state of mind going in to a high dose experience may manifest. It may not be a good time to wander into a cerebral journey unsupervised if you are dealing with familial troubles or are dealing with a lot of stress from work. If you are microdosing, psilocybin can actually help to deal with a lot of these issues, by helping you gain perspective on your situation from an objective standpoint.
If you have used psilocybin before, you are comfortable with how it feels, and you know your boundaries, your expectations are probably already set. When you know what to expect, the psychoactive effects are easier to encounter. If you are new to psilocybin, the best advice is remain calm! It is important to remember your mental state can affect your cerebral journey. Feeling worried or scared might manifest as a negative experience. Always remember, if you are feeling anxious or worried: it will all pass, you will wake up tomorrow feeling normal. Last of all, if you start low and go slow, you will have an enjoyable, eye-opening, pensive experience.
