Hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest therapist John Puls discuss a new study on using microdoses of LSD to treat depression. This research focuses on much smaller doses than those used recreationally, aiming for subtle mood improvements rather than the traditional psychedelic experience.

Microdosing for Mood

The study suggests that microdoses of LSD could offer a new approach for people struggling with depression, especially when traditional treatments fail.

Potential Benefits for Treatment-Resistant Depression

This form of therapy may be particularly promising for those experiencing depression that does not respond to medication or traditional talk therapy.

Risks to Consider

It’s important to be aware of the potential side effects of LSD, even in small amounts. Therapists and researchers need to weigh risks and benefits carefully, especially with certain populations like older adults.
