Microdosing LSD: Studying Doses

microdosing LSD doses

In recent years, the practice of microdosing LSD (and other psychedelics) has received a lot of attention. From Silicon Valley techies looking to improve their performance to everyday people looking to improve their mental health, adding a microdose of psychedelics to your routine is growing in popularity.

Microdosing involves taking sub-perceptual doses of psychedelics such as LSD to achieve subtle and non-hallucinogenic effects. A microdose is typically about one-tenth of a full dose (but can vary from one-fifth to one-twentieth, depending on the substance and your personal preferences and goals). By taking such small amounts, users seek to experience benefits such as increased creativity, mental clarity and improved mood, without the mind-altering effects associated with higher doses of LSD.

Microdosing LSD

Microdosing takes place at substantially lower doses than full psychedelic experiences, so you will most likely hardly notice any obvious effects (no tripping or visual effects). However, it is still important to understand the process and best practices for a safe and effective experience.

  1. Measuring a microdose of LSD: Since a microdose is a fraction of a standard dose, it is essential to measure it accurately. Volumetric dosing is a popular method in which a known amount of LSD is dissolved in a liquid, such as distilled water or alcohol, to achieve a consistent concentration. Then use a dropper to dispense a drop or two (or more), depending on the dilution.
  2. What is a microdose of LSD? A full dose of LSD is generally 100 micrograms. 10 micrograms is a solid microdose of LSD. Most users keep their microdosing of LSD between 8 and 20 micrograms.
  3. Find the right schedule: Microdosing is usually done on a schedule to prevent you from developing a tolerance and to give you time to notice the effects. A common approach is the “Fadiman protocol”, which suggests taking a microdose every three days (one day on, two days off).
  4. Keep a Journal: Recording your experiences, feelings and observations while microdosing can provide valuable insights and help fine-tune the process to maximize benefits.
  5. Listen to yourself: pay attention to how your body and mind react to microdosing and adjust if necessary. Remember that each individual's experience with LSD may differ, and finding what works best for you is essential.

Effects of microdosing of LSD

While microdosing research is still in its infancy, user experiences and preliminary studies suggest several potential benefits. Some of the effects of microdosing LSD are:

  1. Enhanced Creativity: Users often report an increase in creative thinking and problem solving while microdosing.
  2. Improved focus and mental clarity: Microdosing may help some people maintain a sharp mind and increased attention span throughout the day.
  3. Better mood and emotional well-being: Many microdosers report a positive change in their mood and a reduction in anxiety or depressive symptoms.
  4. More energy and motivation: Some users claim that microdosing gives them a subtle boost of energy and motivation, which can help them be more productive.
  5. Improved self-awareness: Some people find that microdosing LSD can lead to a heightened sense of introspection, facilitating personal growth and self-improvement.
