What is microdosing with psychedelics?
Microdosing is often treated as a sensationalist subject by the media. Is it really that popular, or just a short hype?
Does it work or do we experience a strong placebo-effect?
Why would you microdose?
Can it be a tool for mindfulness and personal leadership?
What is OPEN THE DOORS?
The platform Microdosing.nl is creating the first seminar exclusively dedicated to microdosing: OPEN THE DOORS. This all-afternoon event focusses on current research, the working mechanisms of microdosing and its implications for health and personal transformation.
But more so, OPEN THE DOORS promises to be an inspiring gathering for the fast-growing circle of enthusiasts: researchers, psychologists, personal development experts, harm-reduction professionals, those new to microdosing and those who’ve microdosed extensively. All will be there to connect and share experiences and insights. You can imagine how excited we all are.
Are you joining?
An afternoon dedicated to connecting, inspiration, research and insight.
An open space where the microdosing community shares knowledge, maps the unknown and collectively looks forward. Meet everyone in this fresh circle and join the conversation!

The Microdosing.nl community: mission and recent developments
HEIN – Co-founder of Microdosing.nl
Soundbites for inner connection
MELIKA HADŽIĆ – violinist
Psychedelic assisted spiritual awakening
PETER GORDIJN – ex Apache helicopter pilot, author and spiritual guide
“To be able to provide that what cannot be expressed with words, is more valuable than anything”. Former Apache pilot Peter Gordijn has made this his mission after he first saw his life changed by ayahuasca experiences. He has just finished his second book The Absolute Perspective – From resistance to freedom and offers courses in non-duality. Microdosing and high dose ceremonies are incorporated to boost the spiritual teachings.
RESEARCH IN MOTION – Current microdosing research:
LSD microdosing – A dose finding study
Natasha Mason, PhD Cand (Maastricht University)
The present study explores the dose-response relationship in LSD-induced subjective and cognitive effects using small doses of LSD (5, 10, and 20 µg) compared to placebo. The study hypothesis is that higher doses of LSD will be associated with increasingly greater and potentially also qualitatively different subjective effects compared to placebo. An additional study parameter is the change in cognitive performance under the influence of LSD compared to placebo.
Beckley foundation’s self-blinding microdosing study
Balasz Sigeti, PhD (ISMMS, New York)
He is a member of the ‘Beckley foundation’s self-blinding microdosing project’, an innovative study that allows microdosers to implement placebo control during self-experimentation. The project is expected to lunch in the summer of 2018 and will be the first to collect data on microdosing in a placebo controlled manner. This data will allow us to investigate whether microdosers feel benefits due to the placebo effect or because of the pharmacological action of microdosing.
Microdosing LSD & Psilocybin and its effects on the mental health
Anisha Lela Larsson (Uppsala University)
Anisha is a Psychology student who currently performs a study to investigate the effects and adverse effects on mental health at micro-dosing of LSD and Psilocybin. This study is the first to incorporate the aspect of (self-)diagnosed mental conditions amongst microdosers.

Psychedelic Society of the Netherlands
Microdosing.nl is a website where you can read all about the microdosing basics, the latest research, how-to guides, microdosing experiences, and more. Our fast growing online community sprouted from a relevant development in our Western society. It’s about actively seeking new methods and practices for increasing our consciousness, personal development, and potentially healing.
In short, we think microdosing is more than just a productivity hack and we support both individuals and the academic world in their research, learnings, sharing and mapping microdosing experiences.
