Microdosing, taking a tenth of a psychoactive dose, seems to benefit the mind

LSD making comeback as professionals drop ACID before work
EATING tiny amounts of psychedelics like LSD can improve performance in the office and on the track, experts have shockingly claimed.


With their power to melt minds, psychedelics have a fearsome reputation.

But a growing consensus of professionals and athletes believe taking smaller and smarter doses of psychedelics can improve performance both in the office and on the track.

From heightening creativity and focus at work to improving PB’s and enhancing endurance, psychedelics' positive potential is gaining acceptance.

Hallucinogenic drugs have suffered from a stigma ever since 1960s LSD advocate Timothy Leary popularised it as a recreational substance, with the resulting dangerous doses and ‘bad trips’ making headlines.

But recent studies are showing psychedelics’ enormous potential in treating a wide range of mental health disorders, such as depression, addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder.


...And as the drugs' benefits are better understood, an alternative method of ingestion is being explored - microdosing.

This consists of consuming only about a tenth of a recreational dose (usually 10-20 micrograms), which is usually insufficient to cause visual hallucinations.

Conversely, it reportedly heightens alertness, energy and creativity.

...And it’s not only office workers who are experimenting with these secret ingredients: athletes are also reporting noticeable benefits, and converts are wildly enthusiastic.

"LSD can increase your reflex time to lightning speed, improve your balance to the point of perfection, increase your concentration, and make you impervious to weakness or pain," extreme athlete James Oroc wrote in the bulletin for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies.

Very interesting. Again showing that with drugs as well as a whole bunch of other things, just because a lot of something is bad, doesn't mean a little isn't good, although it's usually expressed the other way.

I would have to look into this more, though it is certainly potentially true. The famous scientist Francis Crick (co-discoverer of the structure of DNA) was known to have used LSD from time-to-time. Also, the modern Theoretical Physicist Sean Caroll has used LSD with his wife (pre-planned), recorded the experience, and openly talks about it. They state a openness to potentially do it again, under controlled conditions.

Are you familiar with the Neuroscientist Karl Hart? He specializes in drug research and discusses these issues often. I believe he has been on the Joe Rogan podcast at least once before.

I could certainly see it but at the same time I feel like even on a microdose (which admittedly I've never done) you run the risk of tripping a little too hard for a workplace environment, but I think maybe some jobs are better suited for it than others. I don't know how I feel about a crane operator dropping even a little bit before his shift.

But then again, the psychedelic revolution and all of that change of consciousness stuff. It could very well be as they say it is.

Or not. :lol:

Sometimes "they" can be very sneaky.

I thought LSD sort of died out because it is a non addictive drug, but the penalty for making it is very high, lots of federal prison time. Most drug people and/or drug addicts are looking for opiates, speed or weed, not blotter. Then there is Ecstacy (or Molly, if it is the same dope) which overtook LSD in popularity. Supposedly there were some dudes who made the vast majority of LSD produced in the USA from a missle silo in Kansas. They got caught and got heavy time.

I liked LSD, but the "trip" was a long time and I couldn't sleep for hours on end, and then the next day was a depressive crash. LSD is pretty harmless, just don't drive on it.
