Microdosing Psychedelics - with John Robert Downs | A Good Day to Die EP 16

Microdosing coach John Downs joins me to discuss the cultural resurgence of psychedelic medicine. He explains how microdosing with small doses of psilocybin or acid can help humans to improve mood and sense of wellbeing. Further, one can transform stuck patterns and outdated ways of being by facing and experiencing uncomfortable feelings and memories without the intimidation and fear around high-dose trips.
