Ashwagandha has been a part of Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It helps stabilize and preserve mental and physical health. In fact, some studies have shown this powerful adaptogen helps balance the brain’s serotonin and GABA receptors. This in turn can help to reduce cortisol in the body. Ashwagandha can act as a neuroprotectant that may assist to slow or prevent conditions like Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and Parkinson’s diseases. This herb also affects the endocrine function, helping to regulate the hormones produced by the thyroid, adrenal and testes glands. Also importantly, it has been proven to help quell the symptoms from opiate post-acute withdrawal.

Effects of Adapt Blend
The effects of Adapt 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. Furthermore, introspective thoughts deepen and you may view reality in a much different, objective manner. Last of all, some 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.
It is clear psilocybin can be extremely valuable in a clinical, therapeutic session with supervision. However, 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. It can help 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.
