[ “Between 2010 and 2013, micro began to gain steam in Silicon Valley coder circles, thanks in part to the preachings of LSd researcher James Fadiman. The appeal of a drug regimen that allows for hours of uninterrupted focus and concentration was not lost on this crowd. Fadiman thinks microdosing caught on so quickly because “it has a small positive effect and it’s not scary,” though, as is the case with all drugs, fear is subjective. Particularly because microdosing is both highly unresearched and incredibly imprecise, and therefore prone to all kinds of dosage mix-ups and unintended trips. In fact, there have been zero controlled clinical trials related to micro.” ]

How much is a Micro ?

Most people start at 1/20 to 1/10  of a recreational dose of whatever substance they are trying and adjust based on their experience.  If you are experiencing visual effects, you have taken too much. This is 5-10 micrograms of LSD, slightly more (7-12 mcg) of 1p-LSD. This is 0.1-0.4 grams of psilocybin mushrooms.

How often are micro taken?

Most participants dose every three days.
