Two years ago I wrote a post entitled, “LSD Microdosing Deserves More Serious Research.” In it, I made the case that there is enough anecdotal evidence out there to conclude that LSD when taken in “microdoses” – doses that are a tiny fraction of a full-on trip – could not only improve our creativity but could improve the state of humankind. My call to action was that somebody – anybody – needed to get the funding to conduct such research. I’m excited to say my call is being answered.
The Beckley Foundation has been at the forefront of global drug policy reform and scientific research into psychoactive substances. I had read about Beckley founder, Amanda Feilding, and her organization. Curious, I reached out to her and had a technology-challenged but fascinating web call with her while she was in Jamaica and then a follow-up email interview.
