What’s the deal with microdosing?
Microdosing refers to regularly taking small doses of certain psychedelic drugs to enhance creativity and relieve anxiety. But what is actually going on?
The idea behind microdosing is not to get high, but to feel more focused, creative and present in everyday life. Some reports suggest it improves concentration, and has even been touted as a treatment for depression.
What is a microdose?
Generally, a microdose is one-20th to one-10th of a standard recreational dose. If there’s any hallucinogenic effect it means the dose was too large.
The most common substances used for micrdosing are LSD (also known as acid) and psilocybin (from magic mushrooms). Ayahausca, cannabis, MDMA and ketamine are also being used.
