LSD Microdosing Trial Approved in New Zealand

An LSD microdosing trial has just been given the go ahead in New Zealand. This study is a positive step forward in the study of microdosing as it will be using controlled and measured doses consumed by study participants in a naturalistic setting.

“Users report improvements in mood, wellbeing, improved attention and cognition, so those are the things we will be measuring,” said study leader Dr Suresh Muthukumaraswamy. Dr Muthukumaraswamy is an associate professor at the University of Auckland School of Pharmacy, where much of his research focuses on understanding how therapies alter brain activity, and in developing techniques to measure such changes.

Forty men will be carefully screened to participate in the trial, and LSD microdoses will be tested against placebo. Male only participants are being recruited for this particular study as some of the measures being taken are affected by the menstrual cycle.

At the present time, psychedelic microdosing remains scientifically understudied, since it is hard to distinguish actual effects people experience from placebo. At the present time, most evidence in support of microdosing LSD is largely anecdotal. Previous studies have had serious design flaws, such as users bringing in their own drugs of varying quality, and tests being done in an unnatural, clinical lab environment.

“We’ll be giving microdoses on very tightly controlled prescriptions to take at home – it’ll be a more realistic assessment of what microdosing actually does,” said Dr Muthukumaraswamy.

Psychedelic microdosing is very much in vogue. The practice of consuming tiny amounts of sub-perceptual doses of psychedelic substances (most commonly LSD or psilocybin mushrooms) certainly has an expanding fan base. LSD inventor and discover Albert Hofmann was himself an advocate of microdosing, feeling that it could have a positive effect on mental health and physical functioning. Aside from this study, there are ongoing rigorous studies on psychedelic microdosing currently being carried out by Imperial College London and Maastricht University. Together, this research will provide a much clearer picture on the effects of this practice.

Does psychedelic microdosing yield concrete effects in its advocates? Or is it all a placebo effect? This remains to be answered scientifically, but this research will help to provide a clear answer. If the effects are found to be more than placebo, psychedelic microdosing could provide a more user friendly way of using psychedelics that could yield a host of potential therapeutic applications.

That being said . . . Your mental health affects every aspect of your life and you want to do what you can to enhance and protect it. While if your mental health is affected, there are a number of potential conventional treatments, these do not work for all people. Untreated mental health problems are a major concern throughout most of the world. There are alternative treatments that can be of benefit to a number of people. DMT is one of the alternative treatments that people seek out to aid in improving their overall mental health and mood.

When you are using DMT, you should be cautious and make sure that you are using it properly or else there is a risk for negative effects. The general recommendation is that you work with someone who has experience in using this drug for improved mental health purposes. This ensures that you have the greatest chance at reaping the positive benefits.  That being said, I still recommend that you test this ‘MP3’ designed to ‘train’ your brainwaves to optimal states.

Looking at How DMT Improves Mood and Mental Health

Using DMT can do many positive things for your mood when you are using it properly. In fact, one of the most common uses of this drug is to aid in improving your overall mood and mental health. With proper use of DMT under the direction of someone who has experience using this drug, you can expect the following benefits:

  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • Heightened self-esteem
  • A reduction in the negative effects of emotional or physical trauma
  • Reduction in anxiety
  • Decrease in depression and its symptoms

  • Improved ability to cope with grief and loss

These benefits tend to come over time as you continue to have DMT experiences. However, after one use, many people report feeling better overall. This drug offers a sense of euphoria that is present immediately after having a DMT experience. How long this lasts depends on the person, but most people report that their mood is improved for several days after a single DMT experience. Talk to someone with experience to get a better idea about what to expect.

How DMT Can Help to Improve Your Mental Health

As long as you are taking DMT properly, it can offer a number of benefits to your mood and mental health. These benefits typically include:

A better mood is typically an immediate side effect of using DMT properly. It helps to reduce negative emotions so that you are less likely to allow them to take over and control you. You will find that you naturally become a more positive person who is more likely to see the good things in life. This is important because when you are not allowing negative emotions to take over, you tend to have a better level of mental health. Being more positive and happy are something that DMT can help with because it allows you to free your mind of worry.
