Over the course of her 30 day microdosing LSD program, she fought less with her husband and reveled in the joy her children provided. She wasn’t as irritable and, perhaps most crucially, vastly more efficient: Even on days she felt cranky, she was “weirdly productive,” she jots down in her log. “I found myself so effortlessly in the flow that I didn’t even notice time passing,” she writes. “I see why people microdose [LSD] as an alternative to Adderall.” – Aylet Waldman
- Pure LSD is derived from a fungus that grows on the rye plant (yes, the same rye flour of which is used to bake rye bread).
- However, don’t make the mistake of thinking LSD and this fungus are the same; in fact, rye ergot can be fatal!
- This [ergot] fungus has been known for hundreds of years and was used successfully as a treatment for reducing blood loss during child-birth. In the wrong dose, it could kill the mother; used correctly, save a life.
- It only only when ergot rye is precisely processed can it be turned into LSD which, is not only non-toxic, but has the added health-benefit of increasing communication between different areas of the brain by diversifying overall brain activity.
SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE / MEDICINAL EFFICACY
1. Promising results [have been] reported for treatment of both end-of-life psychological distress and addiction, and classic psychedelics such as LSD served as tools for studying the neurobiological bases of psychological disorders. – Read More
2. This study found reductions in both ethanol consumption and preference in the group of mice treated with the LSD dosage of 50 μg/kg. – Read More
3. Numerous studies have also suggested the possibility that nonmedical naturalistic (non-laboratory) use of classic psychedelics such as LSD is associated with positive mental health and prosocial outcomes. – Read More
4. LSD produced feelings of happiness, trust, closeness to others, enhanced explicit and implicit emotional empathy on the MET (empathy test), and impaired the recognition of sad and fearful faces on the FERT (face emotion recognition test). LSD enhanced the participants’ desire to be with other people and increased their prosocial behavior on the SVO (social value orientation) test. These effects of LSD on emotion processing and sociality may be useful for LSD-assisted psychotherapy. – Read More
