The Microdose Study with Zachary Walsh
Microdosing is a trending practice, but the science is far behind. Today we are joined by Zachary Walsh, a leading researcher in the Microdose Study. We discuss the objectives and hurdles in conducting a study like this. It is the first of its kindÑ a mobile, correlational study collecting data on the effects on cognitive performance and mental health of microdosing with psychedelic substances.
