Dosed Documentary

Dosed documentary is an independent movie that presents the inspiring story of Adrianne, a young woman who struggled with drug addiction for 20 years.

Here is what people are saying about it:

“One of the best documentaries on the North American addiction crisis. For anyone suffering from addiction, or has a loved one suffering from addiction this is a must watch.” – Review by Tiffany Bowie

“This is one of those documentaries that’s actually going to change the world.

Went to the world premiere of this documentary in Denver and was amazed at how brutally honest it was about dealing with addiction and how this country keeps pushing maintenance drugs as opposed to actually dealing with the pain that causes these addictions. Lot’s of documentaries will show the gritty side of life but this one also showed the beauty of hope as Adrienne begins to deal with her problems. With the proper use of Psilocybin and Ibogaine the odds of beating the addiction goes up dramatically. If you or anyone you love is battling their drug habits please watch this film.”Review by Ryan Munevar

Addiction occurs when a person attempts to run away from pain (usually those who suffer from depression and anxiety are more likely to suffer from any sort of addiction).

Though, under psychedelics, the fears that people hide and run away from can often come to the surface and cannot be escaped. This is why psychedelics such as psilocybin mushrooms are being used more and more to help overcome  addictions.

This article will answer the commonly asked question “Can you overdose on shrooms?” while sharing the incredibly inspiring story of a woman who dares to believe in the healing powers of plant medicine.

The following words will dive deep into the commonly faced issue of addiction and everything that comes with it, while summarizing and reviewing this deeply inspiring documentary.

Now let’s go back to this movie:

Who is Adrianne?

The Dosed documentary shares the story of a young, beautiful woman: Adrianne, who didn’t have to face a particularly harsh life, nor any kind of intense trauma in her life.

Though, as a teenager, she gets addicted to really heavy drugs and the addiction gets worse and worse, till it reaches a point where Adrianne even considers ending her own life.

Her friends and family try to help her, but it seems like her only relief is taking drugs to calm all of the negativity that resides within her.

One day, though, Adrianne’s friend (who happens to be Dosed documentary’s director too) suggests that she try out psilocybin therapy as he had heard it could be helpful with any kind of addiction (cigarette, alcohol, durg…).

The idea terrifies Adrianne, because mushrooms are often seen and described as a sort of drug. But the fear of spending another 20 years as a drug addict, or of ending her own life, is way scarier than trying out something new which might end up being the cure for some of the issues she’s having.

How Can Psilocybin Help Overcome Addiction?

Psilocybin is the compound found in the so-called magic mushrooms and it’s thanks to it that hallucinations can take place. 

Psilocybin allows neuroplasticity to happen – reconfiguring new pathways in which the brain can respond.

Fears, traumas, doubts, hidden parts of our most intimate self come to surface with the intake of psilocybin mushrooms, allowing you to observe, face, release and cure those scary parts of the self that have so often been avoided or brushed under the rug.

Through recognizing, facing and letting go it is often possible to reconfigure the brain – to awaken from a long sleep, to see the world with new eyes, and to start again… this is why it can be very effective when healing from any kind of addiction as it resets ideas that no longer serve.

Dosed documentary shares the journey towards the cure of Adrianne’s addiction, where she experiences: 

Let’s dig deeper into how she experienced each one of them…

Adrianne’s First Psilocybin Therapy Session

During her first psilocybin mushroom therapy, Adrianne takes a full dose (2 grams) of dried psilocybin mushrooms, and the session feels incredibly rough.

She mentions how she “saw things as they truly are” and how this made her feel calm and peaceful inside – from an intense disconnection to self – to a new kind of interconnectedness with everything.

During the therapy, she feels a natural impulse to cry tears of self compassion and self love, experiencing a love she had never felt before.

She finds herself asking if ‘suicide was the only option’ to get out of the situation she was in, and the answer that psilocybin guided her to was a loud, clear, No.

Adrianne’s Dose

Few months later she experiences a second session – a therapeutic dose (3.5 grams) of dried psilocybin mushrooms.

During this session Adrianne experiences a significant breakthrough – and a deep feeling of loneliness. 

The second psilocybin therapy was way more intense than the first one as the dose was higher, and overall, she felt much more open to receive and to let go (because as we all knowletting go is always painful).

After the second psilocybin therapy, Adrianne embarks on a microdosing journey – taking 0.2 grams a day to maintain some of the beneficial effects of the intense therapy she experienced.

Psilocybin Heroic Dose

After her successful four months of sobriety Adrianne decides to go deeper with the psilocybin therapy as she feels more ready to receive the powerful and transformative answers that the magic of mushrooms can reveal.

She chooses to have heroic dose therapy, which consists of the intake of 6 grams of dried mushrooms.

The session is guided by experts in a secure environment where she feels safe to feel grief, joy, pain, sadness, and gratitude.

When she transitions out of the experience, which she described to being totally anxiety free, she embodies deep love, and profound connection to all things. 


After the incredibly inspiring and transformative experience she had with psilocybin mushrooms, Adrianne decides to continue the journey with microdosing – which consists of a regular intake of a small amount of psilocybin.

Microdosing has so many effective benefits for all kinds of people – it doesn’t need to be followed by experts, and after having so much medical guidance, Adrianne feels finally ready to embark on her own journey, knowing she gained the strength to be reborn as a newer, stronger, healthier self.

Can You Overdose on Shrooms?

Dosed documentary shares an inspiring story, not only because of Adrianne’s  perseverance and will to change, but also because it allows us to answer the question “Can you overdose on shrooms?” with a real life example.

Sadly, mushrooms are still seen as a drug rather than a plant medicine that has the power to heal and transform.

When many of us think of drugs, we automatically think of addiction, so it’s a common myth that mushrooms can be addictive.

Is it true? Can you overdose on shrooms?

The simplest answer will be: No. But it’s also very important to clarify that mushrooms are a powerful medicine that needs to be taken responsibly, well-guided, and consciously.

Though, since they do not create any sort of addiction – rather, they help fight any addiction one may have – it is very unrealistic that a mushroom overdose could take place.
