Microdosing LSD - Day 1
Hey folks, Graham here.
And now for some Gonzo journalism.!
So I decided to try microdosing a long while ago but I wanted to do it with mushrooms really. Sadly I have been unable to get a decent supply of shrooms so I have decided to try it with LSD.
Legal Disclaimer - I am using a legal form of LSD called 1CP-LSD currently available in Europe.
Day 1 - I started this yesterday but I never felt much really. Slightly more alert if anything. Today however after my second dose a feel a nice glow all over and feel pretty focused and I also feel more productive than I have recently.
Music is also sounding amazing.
Dosage was 12 micrograms each day. (1 tenth of a blotter)

I initially thought this was an every day thing but this is not the case.
The Pretty-Much-Agreed-Upon Regimen
According to the Fadiman approach, people generally microdose once every three days for about a month — one day on, two days off. But why space it out? “After reading a lot of reports and talking to a lot of people, the effects were lasting for up to two days,” Fadiman says. “The psychedelics are actually gone within a few hours, but you have the same kind of feeling — functioning better — for two days.” There’s another reason to space it out: Psychedelics, while nonaddictive, can cause a tolerance to build. The most important thing to keep in mind: Fadiman advises taking a microdose before 10 a.m. “Taking it later may make it harder to fall asleep. From there, people should keep to their daily schedule: work, leisure, meals, medications, exercise.” After the month, Fadiman found that most people continued to microdose only occasionally, on an as-needed basis — for an exam, a presentation. Plus, like with most things, it’s good to take a break.
I will take a break the next two days to see if I still feel anything and to avoid building up a tolerance!
