Microdosing LSD is taking low doses of the drug to boost creativity, mood, and cognition. However, LSD is likely to stay illegal as it can be difficult to manage in case of overdose. BioPharm is developing safer alternatives that have similar benefits but plateau at a manageable level of intensity. These products could improve the quality of life for millions of people.
MDMA has been investigated as a potential treatment for various psychiatric disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and addiction. However, MDMA can cause long-term damage to the brain and the heart, creating the opportunity to develop safer, less toxic alternatives.
Psychoactive Drug Designer Matt Bowden responded today to reporting of Auckland University’s study on LSD micro-dosing having potential sleep benefits, warning the public that LSD in normal doses can cause sleep disturbance on the day of usage, and adding that safer alternatives may need to be developed before public usage of psychedelic drugs.
