Can taking LSD for breakfast be good for you?
Unless you’ve woken up the next morning at a music festival you’ve probably never taken LSD for breakfast before. But, if you have it would seem that you are ahead of the pack.
Believe it or not there is a movement of people taking ‘micro doses’ of LSD for breakfast, generally taking in about 10 to 15 micrograms. This is much smaller than the doses people take to induce a hallucinogenic trip.
The idea behind the ‘microdosing’ on LSD for breakfast is that it can help cure any anxiety or insomnia you may be suffering from.
Social anxiety affects many of us to a degree so the concept of a drug or anything at all being able to help with that is… well, pretty tempting.
This is what a doctor who worked with the drug until it was banned in 1966 had to say about it…
‘People do it and they’re eating better, sleeping better, they’re often returning to exercise or yoga or meditation. It’s as if messages are passing through their body more easily. This is total guesswork, but so many different conditions that I’ve seen are improved, it looks like it rebalances those pistons which are not in balance. This may be in your central nervous system, it may be the brain stem, it may be that it’s improving function of mitochondria. One woman who had painful, crampy periods started microdosing and when her period came, she had no problems.’ Said Psychedelics researcher Dr James Fadiman
This same doctor has been sending out instructions sheets without any LSD though in order to school people on the ‘how-to’ of ‘microdosing’. He also asks that these same people make a record of what they experience.
Users have reported back to him that they had experienced good days and that things had gone smooth for them throughout the day that they micro dosed.
“Microdosing of 10 to 20 micrograms (of LSD) allow me to increase my focus, open my heart, and achieve breakthrough results while remaining integrated within my routine. My wit, response time, and visual and mental acuity seem greater than normal on it.” Said a user named Madeline
LSD for breakfast anyone?
