Microdosing is when you take a tiny amount of psychedelic drugs - LSD or magic mushrooms usually - as part of your ordinary day. The drugs are illegal, and there is no medical evidence to say what the benefits or harms of it may be. But a small community of people in the UK are doing it anyway, and say it’s improving their lives. Some say it aids creativity and concentration and others argue it helps with their mental health problems. BBC Reporter Catrin Nye has been meeting the people that do it.

5:04 He is so full of shit. Taking such a low dose once every two months would have no therapeutic effect. That is more in line with getting high once every two months. Also, that low dose he supposedly takes is also one huge BS. Even if he has some very good LSD, 20mcg is such a low dose that I doubt anyone would feel any effects from it.
What's so wrong about actually being high anyway? Our view of being high is parallel to middle-ages' view on orgasm. Irrational, unjustifiable and retrograde. No to mention how unethical it is for the state to meddle with the personal freedom of enjoying ourselves, our body and mind. These belong to each of us. The government has no right there.
did microdosing with mushroom,s I was taking between 0.2g-0.5g every 2 days
I became so mentally calm and chill, it was like my nervousness dropped from 100% to 20%
I got tired of it because I wanted to feel normal again, feeling calm is cool, but I like experimenting my default emotions, even if they make me suffer, it's part of me
but certainly, this experience teached me how to deal with situations better, and how to deal with my emotions better
explore, but stay safe and logical
This video starts with severe missinformation 20milligramm is not a microdose first of all its measured in mikro!!! gram second of all an effective dose starts from around 70 mikrogramm hallucinations might set in between 200 and 400 mikrogramm at around 800 mikrogramm u can expect the first dissociations. micro dosing is 5 to 20 mikrogramm once every second day! and most importantly u do not do it with tickets but normally with drops as the amount of lsd on a ticket is not necessarily evenly spread. All in all i give this video a D- . Bad Job BBC
Moderate micro dosing halucinogenics have been shown help Heroin/ opiate/meth/cocaine/ , prescription addiction as well as many depression states , any benefit that could help the addicts of hard drugs shouldve been legalized years ago , controlled and monitored , it could help thousands , even millions to slow down the death nails of addiction... the war on drugs has been a massive failure. and emergency measures need to be taken , bri..ng in these meds to help fight Drug addiction
13:42 Annnd we got almost to the end before they start with their cancerous Social Justice bullshit. Of course, talking about micro-dosing isn't enough - these clowns have to figure out how it might oppress somebody somewhere...
Reporting sucks when its done by a woman. This is such an interesting topic and it was incredibly boring. So many beginner mistakes in this video too. Get a man to do this next time pls. You had a great opportunity and you ruined it.
instead of microdosing to appreciate each moment more/be creative etc, why not just train yourself to appreciate the world around you more? That way, you discipline yourself to become a better person and not rely on something like LSD.
What you're going to experience is what's known as "familiar spirits" in the Bible, they're *highly* intelligent and immensely deceptive... they'll only feed you with pleasant information and all that other B.S. as long as you believe their lies... get baptized in water in the name of the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and declare him Lord over your life, they'll be forced to show their true colors then... ravenous demon spirits (you should get prayer). Watch "The Last Reformation", they got 3 free films and tons of videos on Youtube, of people going through deliverance and the stuff that comes out of you, when you're under the power of the Holy Spirit!
It's not some joke what you're getting yourself involved in,... I know because I used to do my own ayahuasca many years ago. I knew all about shrooms, LSD and getting high all the time. Just look up all the other _thousands_ of testimonies here on Youtube alone, of people who nearly lost their life or sanity because of their involvement in witchcraft, esoterics, New Age crap, BEFORE finding to Jesus or in some cases, were sought out by Jesus in their calamity... if that doesn't make you wonder, I don't know.
I'd still kindly challenge you, try this if you still think demons are only a "meme"... get baptized in water, and ask Jesus into your heart and to wash you clean of all your sins. They'll fight it tooth and nail to hinder you from doing it, or they'll start announcing their presence and real intentions to you in dreams, etc.
This idea that DMT opens wormholes that "DMT aliens" need to communicate with you, if they're "interdimensional" indeed, falls short of any logic... You know, where are the Serotonin elves? Where are the Adrenaline machine aliens? Where are the corn starch and gluten Ascended Masters?
I wouldn't need to be a DMT "alien" to think that people who believe this nonsense are bacteria... lol (that part about being bacteria is Joe Rogan's *great and wonderful epiphany*, essentially -- not my words).
When in actuality!!! -- YOU have an eternal soul that's been created in the image and likeness of God your heavenly Father who loves you with an endless love, and that's why the kingdom of Satan hates you so much, and wants to deceive you.Their sadism is fulfilled the longer they can keep you in the dark before betraying you. Sorry, mate. God bless you
What are they promoting this shit for,?
Clearly the BBC is still riddled with fairly screwed up people, the big pedos are in hiding now, but the drug lovers seem to be allowed to use public funds to promote their particular intrests.
just took half a hit. My medication (paxil) doesn't work that well. Acid literally helps me so much more. Sometimes I feel twice as bad, after I take my anti depressants, that the pharmaceutical companies sell me.
So what if you wanted to microdose and had a super 10x hit of blotter....you cut it into tiny pieces to microdose before heading to work....only thing is unbeknownst to you most of the 1000mu is separated onto the one tiny piece of blotter you chose ....oops?
Instant chemical wisdom does exist but it lasts for a few hours, thats why psychedelics are banned in most countries. You have to be very gullible or moronic enough to believe that they ever gave a fuck about your health or well being. The greatest psychonaut of us all, said it loud and clear, "psychedelics dont work on stupid people". The psychedelics can expand your consciousness but in order for them to do that, first you must have a consciousness and not just be alive. These substances are for the shamans, they are for the people who wonder WHY they exist, not for the people who are just happy to exist.
Do a favor to yourself and eat shrooms before you die, even just once. I will never forget my experience, a world unfolded before my eyes and gave me the greatest realization of them all, the realization that the only thing I know, is that I know nothing.
I was sitting legs crossed like Buddha and I was loving EVERYTHING as I was seeing myself in everything. At some point I had no body, I was the sea and the sand, the sun and the sky, the birds, the fish and the people walking by, and then I started laughing and couldn't stop, as i realized that it is just "me" and there is no "other". Everything on the world is just different expressions of my eternal self, and while I was having this thought, Jesus walks into my mind and says "Love your neighbor as you love thyself. Do you understand now that all I ever asked you was to love yourself?". Boom... mind blown!!!! Such ideas might come to you if you use psychedelics and as you can understand, such ideas are a threat to those who want to make you a soldier and throw away your life in their cause. Psychedelics can remove the fear of death from the people, if death doesnt scare people then violence cant control them and all the systems that rely on submission and authorities will fall down like a house of cards because the people would become fearless and would prefer to fight and die than to live a degenerate excuse of life in servitude of their masters. There is no death, you dont die when you remove your clothes, you dont die when you remove your body, you are not your clothes or your body. Want proof? Eat shrooms or shut up, I prefer the white noise over the sound of stupidity.
I don't think that getting creative through drugs is your own work at the end. Being creative means to search for yourself and especially for your feelings and to sharpen your skills in the kind of art you want to express yourself through. Taking drugs to get there is more of a cheap trick.
Sidenote to what this psychiatrist is saying: sure, by performing a blinded placebo controlled randomized trial you are using a scientific method. But this falls into pieces once you realize the mental issues of the individuals in these groups can not be "measured". Thus the whole trial is meaningless and can be abused to show any - now still illegal drug - has no real benefits - which there are effectively doing.
You literally have no idea how LSD works. This coming from a former heroin addict who knows and admits all of the pitfalls of drug dependence and addiction. No one gets "high" from microdosing. They take it *because* it helps them.
Lol at the framing of 13:52. Sure it is dangerous, but I recently heard an acquaintance of an acquaintance of mine died because of being too drunk, falling in a canal and because of the drunkenness not being able to swim. It shocked me on how dangerous alcohol could be. Always take drugs as safely as possible, including alcohol.
Also, microdosing is not the same as taking a full dose of LSD. One wine glass is fine as well.
Dr. Albert Hofmann, the Guy who developed LSD took it day by day by day by day for decades. He died in the age of 102 !!!!!! with a better working brain then 90% of all people. THATS your longterm "problems".
L has no “ground”, like natural psychedelics. Which makes it especially dangerous. It’s a pure psychedelic and you’re completely on your own without any “spirit” guides like we feel with plants. It’s easy to think you are controlling “reality”. Which is why we have so many perma-spun lost hippies out there. But it does have its place. I just think it’s tragic how people consider it to be basically harmless. It’s one of the most dangerous drugs ever made. And now with our brains under attack by 200,000+ chemicals causing an epidemic of mental illness, L IS EVEN MORE DANGEROUS THAN EVER BEFORE. some can handle it just fine, others can’t. We should all be very protective of our loved ones and keep a close eye on those that can’t. And tell them not to follow the party, and not because they aren’t cool, but because their brain is different.
i have had shrooms in high dose and low micro dose and all i can say is they are highly beneficial, in many ways. this makes me really want to try lsd, in low micro dose first then a higher dose a few days later.
I’ve been on 10+ different antidepressants and currently on a combination of cymbalta, bupropian and 5HTP and have not been doing well at all and getting considerably worse. I’ve been on the waitlist for rTMS treatment for 8 months now (they similar, to the man in this study, accept patients who conventional forms have not worked for). This is something I find super fascinating and would love to be able to try
Shame they can’t see the 70,s and see that actually these drugs did well for people. People were alive and living the moment with the biggest smiles all around.
They say there concerned about long term affects but what about alcohol or tobacco??? What’s worse then death????
If you can't enjoy your life without some sort of drugs (alcohol, drugs and etc) - you have a big problem. I'm not saying now about people with mental or physical problems... Well, they already have a problem :/
As a teenager i used to take LSD a couple of times a year and it worked for me it opened up my mind and made me a better person. Unfortunately not everyone can handle or deal with trips. I for one think LSD does more for you mentaly than any prescription drug could do. If i could micro dose or knew a way of getting LSD safely i would do it at a drop of a hat hands down.
Pharmaceutical medications are drugs. Therefore drugs can be medicine. How hard is that to understand? We need research, not this OMG DRUGS!? DRUGS ARE BAD!!! attitude. Some are, some aren't, some are at one dose but harmless at another, or in one circumstance but not another, etc. etc.
Shit, even methamphetamine has legitimate medicinal utility in some cases. But like I'm saying, there's a difference between smoking 50 mg of it for fun (which will wreck you) and taking 2 or 3 5 mg pills of it a day to counteract a severe case of ADHD (which will help you.)
Saw myself in Sempa. I've never tried magic mushrooms or LSD but I do smoke cannabis and I find the same benefits. I don't understand the laws around these substances either. It makes absolutely no sense.
If memory serves, before it was determined higher doses would cause psychoactive effects, LSD was used to treat mental illness. Namely schitzophrenia.
Its possible that I'm getting it confused with mdma and too lazy to google, but pretty sure it was LSD
