About us

Our microdosing curiosity was sparked by the predominantly positive findings that users have reported over the years to scientist Dr. James Fadiman, who has been researching microdosing since 2010. We wanted to find out for ourselves if these ‘subperceptual’ doses could really be a game-changer, so we took the test and participated in the experiment. Since then, we have explored the depths of this practice, resulting in Microdosing.nl – until now, the 𝐦𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐃𝐮𝐭𝐜𝐡 𝐰𝐞𝐛𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐞 and community platform on microdosing.

We find it important to approach all aspects of microdosing with a healthy dose of sobriety. Although it has many exciting benefits for many humans such as increased focus, flow, energy, and creativity, ɪᴛ ᴡᴏɴ’ᴛ ʙᴇ ᴀ ᴍɪʀᴀᴄʟᴇ ᴄᴜʀᴇ ᴏʀ ᴀ ꜱɪʟᴠᴇʀ ʙᴜʟʟᴇᴛ.

However, with a mindful approach, microdosing often offers an extra layer of awareness and presence to your day-to-day life. This allows you to gain fresh perspective on your habits, needs, lifestyle, relationships, emotional triggers, and responses.

Here at Microdosing Institute, our goal is to bring you the highest quality, research-backed education and coaching to help you on your microdosing journey.

We’re grateful to have you as part of the community. 

Our Story

We are Hein and Jakobien, the founders of the Microdosing Institute. Growing up in the Netherlands, we became familiar with psychedelics in our early college years.

This has led Hein on the path of personal exploration, guiding friends and relatives on psychedelic journeys, including his best friend who suffered from cluster headaches.

Jakobien started her career working in sales and marketing for a fast-growing Dutch smart shop and has been joining plant medicine circles ever since. We have ever since been particularly interested in all the facets of these substances: their immediate effects in various dosages, their medicinal use and their ample possibilities that they provide for self-development.

As certified coaches, we are here to be your consultant or guide during your microdosing journey.

Together We Create the Future

The increase in scientific research into the effects and applications of psychedelics, alongside the renewed transmission of native wisdom will ensure that the condemning label ‘drugs’ will no longer suit these substances. We do what we can to overcome the stigma on psychedelics, so that they will be considered as a medicine or therapeutic tool in the first place.

What helps is that people like you and us can meet each other for an open conversation. Every meetup, sharing circle, lecture, retreat, or conference seems to inspire connection and offer new building blocks for a mycelium-like network.  Together we create the future!

Our Network

We are in close contact with organizations and people involved in scientific research on microdosing and psychedelics, such as researchers James Fadiman, Vince Polito, Kim Kuypers and team, Balasz Szigeti, Beckley Foundation founder Amanda Feilding and team, The Third Wave, the San Francisco Psychedelic Society. In the Netherlands, we work together with neuroscientists, psychologists, journalists, smartshops, the OPEN Foundation, the Synthesis Institute, the Guild of Guides, psychedelic student association APRA and the Psychedelic Societies of the Netherlands, UK and San Francisco.
