7 Things I Learned from Microdosing LSD

This is not your parents' LSD.

1. Do your research.
There are a ton of resources on the Internet about microdosing. Use them but stay focused because you can find yourself going down a rabbit hole rather quickly.

2. Be open.
If you’re a rather regimented thinker, this is not going to be your cup of tea. You’ve got to be open to the experience. Microdosing won’t break your brain BUT if you’re not open to the experience, you won’t gain anything from it.

Be open to the experience and if you can’t be, that’s okay too. It’s not for everybody.

3. If you choose to share it with people, expect to be met with severe judgment and archaic misconceptions about psychedelics.
The minute you mention LSD people will freak out and judge you. Maybe out of concern and maybe because they’re judgmental.

I’m not saying people’s concern around the procurement and ingestion of psychedelics is not warranted; it is. Considering it’s illegal, it’s probably not a good idea to shout it from the rooftop anyway.

4. It’s not a cure.
Microdosing is an aid like anything else. No one really knows how this stuff works because the brain is a wonky muscle. And if they are telling you they know how it works, you should be suspect.

5. Know your dose.
LSD is measured in micrograms. An average dose can vary from 100 micrograms upwards (usually not exceeding 300/350). A typical microdose is 10 micrograms and can range from 10–20 micrograms.

Most street level dealers more than likely won’t know the dosage, so be careful. The very last thing you’d want is to purchase what you THINK, or are told, is a microdose and then end up macrodosing. That would make for a horrible experience.

Also, buy a testing kit to make sure you’re getting legitimate LSD and not some bunk chemical.

6. The Dark Web IS crazy.
If you use the dark web to procure your LSD, be careful. If you take basic precautions, you can navigate it. I really can’t stress this enough: don’t go looking for crazy things because you'll find them. Get in and get out.

If you’re paranoid about someone stealing your identity, that’s a fair concern. However, if someone wants your information, they’re going to get it. Period.

7. Follow a protocol.
Should you decide to microdose LSD (or any other psychedelic), follow a protocol. The typical one is:

Dose Day -> Off Day -> Off Day -> Dose Day

Why follow a protocol? It’s a good idea to gauge how microdosing will impact your day to day life. When doing something like this, structure is not your enemy.

I think that eventually we’ll see psychedelics legalized in a structured setting, like they’ve done with Ketamine, for the treatment of some illnesses.

Well, I guess that’s more of a hope because we all know there is no money to be made in curing people.
