Out now! The Science of Microdosing Psychedelics by Torsten Passie, MD
Less is more? Extraordinary claims about the effects of microdosing psychedelic substances include the ability to enhance creativity, elevate mood and even combat depression. In The Science of Microdosing Psychedelics, Dr Torsten Passie reveals a rich and largely ignored history of research with microdose, minidose and low-dose LSD, putting these claims under the microscope.
With microdosing being lauded across the media as a potential panacea, this carefully researched and scientifically presented book provides an objective and comprehensive perspective, covering key areas such as tolerance, toxicity, and placebo. It also includes newly translated and never before referenced LSD studies, and a foreword by Dr David Nichols. The Science of Microdosing Psychedelics is a book no discerning researcher, practitioner or psychedelic aficionado should be without.
