Microdosing Study

Are you experienced or interested in "microdosing"?

We are looking for individuals who are currently experimenting with, or who are considering experimenting with microdosing psychoactive substances to take part in an anonymous online study tracking their experiences.

What is microdosing?

- Microdosing is taking an extremely low dose of a psychoactive substance, for example approximately 6-25 micrograms of LSD, .15 - .50 grams of dried Psilocybe Cubensis mushrooms or 2-5 milligrams of psilocybin.
- Individuals microdosing typically take one dose every 3-4 days.

We are looking for participants who are regularly microdosing or who already plan to start microdosing in the near future. This study is not intended to encourage anyone to use illegal substances.

This is an anonymous online questionnaire study that will run for up to 42 days. If you decide to participate there will be four parts to the research.

1. When first enrolling in the study we will ask you to complete a number of questionnaires about your wellbeing, attitudes and beliefs. These questionnaires will take approximately 1 hour to complete.
2. Each morning we will email you a link to short survey asking some simple questions about the previous day (e.g., we will ask you to rate how happy you felt the previous day). This survey will take less than 5 minutes to complete each day.
3. Each week we will email you a short questionnaire asking about your mood and feelings of control during the past week. This questionnaire will take about 5 minutes to complete.
4. At the end of the study we will again ask you to complete a larger selection of questionnaires about your wellbeing, attitudes and beliefs. These questionnaires will take approximately 1 hour.

During the period of this study you may or may not engage in microdosing as you wish. There is no requirement for you to start or stop microdosing at any time. We are interested in tracking peoples' experiences whether they microdose a little, a lot or not at all.

You are free to discontinue the study immediately at any time, without providing a reason.

To participate in this study you must be aware of microdosing (whether or not you actually microdose) and proficient in English.

To take part in this study you must not have a history or current diagnosis of primary psychotic disorder, mood disorder, anxiety disorder, dissociative disorder, substance disorder. Additionally you must not have a family history of schizophrenia or psychosis.

If you would like to participate, or to find out more, please visit this link.

All information that you provide will be kept anonymous and confidential. Results of this study will only be reported as group data - that is, there will be nothing that will identify you as an individual. Approval to conduct the study has been granted by the Macquarie University Ethics Committee.

Finally, if you know of anyone who may be interested in this study please pass this information on.

Thankyou for your support of this research.
