by Torsten Passie

From the Publisher:  It has been claimed that microdosing psychedelic substances such as LSD has the ability to enhance creativity, elevate mood and even combat depression. In this new book, Torsten Passie MD, author of The Pharmacology of LSD (2010), delves into the first-wave scientific literature on microdosing. He reveals a rich and largely ignored history of research with microdose, minidose and low-dose LSD, and other psychedelics, and original translations from German to English.At a time when microdosing is being lauded across the media as a potential panacea, this carefully researched and scientifically presented work provides an objective and clear perspective, covering key areas such as tolerance, toxicity, and placebo. A book no discerning researcher, practitioner or psychedelic aficionado should be without, The Science of Microdosing Psychedelics is an invaluable enchiridion of information and insight.

Praise for the book: “Finally, a book about microdose research I can recommend without reservation.” — Dr. James Fadiman, researcher and author of the Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide
