As 'Microdosing' Explodes in Popularity, New Look at Benefits, Side Effects of Daily Psychedelics Use
We are hearing a lot lately about microdosing, and even the mainstream media has started to get into the subject. Take a look a this NBC Investigative report that just came out.
In the report, they interview a supposed dealer (of magic mushroom microdoses) and a man who works in the finance sector who takes microdoses on a regular basis. Both of them have their identity hidden for obvious reasons: psilocybin mushrooms are listed as Schedule I drugs in the US.
They also interview Dr. David Nichols who one of the world’s most respected psychedelic researchers and has been studying these drugs for decades, his point of view about microdosing is that is is a ''bad idea''

This has to be great news for those into cannabis smoking. Why waste your marijuana by smoking it when you can vape it and get a bigger high?
This finding comes to us from some scientists from Johns Hopkins University, the same university that is currently producing groundbreaking research to prove that psilocybin has healing capabilities, a great university in our opinion!
Their finding confirms that vaporized cannabis produces greater pharmacodynamic effects and higher concentrations of THC in blood when compared with equal doses of smoked cannabis.
Moreover, vaporizing week is healthier than smoking it because you will be avoiding the carcinogens in the smoke.

Mr. Tachyon, the masqued Vice reporter, explores the use of psilocybin mushrooms as a doorway to Higher Consciousness.
He first interviews Dr. John Vervaeke who studies how psychedelics can change our minds at the University of Toronto.
He reveals an interesting aspect of psychedelics: it can expand the number of states that the brain can get into which then introduces cognitive flexibility into peoples cognitions. This, in turn, allows you to cultivate wisdom because psilocybin could improve your insight, improve the reduction of your egocentrism, your ability to pick up on other people's perspectives and enhance your capacity for self-transcendence, which is what you need to overcome self-deception, and that my friends is the core of wisdom.
He then goes on to interview Tom Brennan, a DIY Mycologist, and Educator who microdoses as an exploratory way to increase consciousness.
