Additional ways to celebrate
Who is Dr. James Fadiman?
#WorldMicrodosingDay is a celebration of more than 10 years of modern microdosing, a movement that started when James Fadiman (whose birthday is on May 27th – no coincidence!), published his booked The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide: Safe, Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys.
Following this publication, he shared his research protocol with people who had decided to try microdosing, and invited them to send him their stories afterwards. Fadiman’s contributions to modern-day microdosing have been paramount to growing the knowledge and awareness of the practice. Thanks to his project, we have discovered best dosing practices, workable protocols and have developed methods for tracking results. We have also learned how to reduce harm and equip people with knowledge to start making better choices and live healthier lives.
We’re beyond grateful for his contributions that we stand on, and are delighted to honor him and his work!
The Cause: Why share your story?
Encourage scientific research on microdosing
Microdosing has been shown anecdotally and through citizen science to be effective for ADHD/ADD, PMS, headaches, depression, social anxiety, pain management, and inflammation reduction – just to name a few potential therapeutic and medical applications. It has also shown to improve self-love and have a positive effect on relationships.
De-stigmatization of microdosing and psychedelics
This will help provide better access to millions of people that could benefit from this practice but are currently unable to do so. Legal restrictions, judgment, inequality and social injustice make it impossible for many individuals around the globe to explore psychedelics safely and without unfavorable consequences.
