> I forget the dose used in a Really Good Day (15mcg?). That is not unlike a Ritalin.

Waldman took 10 mcg (about one-tenth of a tripping dose) every third day. She'd been on Ritalin and Adderall, and she found LSD to be far more effective at boosting her mood and motivation.

>What was Albert Hoffmann's initial dose?

The first time he knowingly dropped acid, it was 250 mcg.

I like this quote from a New Yorker profile of Waldman:

At some point in her microdosing, Waldman said, she decided to start telling her friends about the experiment. She received the most resistance from people of her own generation, in their forties and fifties--possibly, she thinks, because they grew up in a post-acid age and are "busy lying to their children about drugs." Younger people seemed open, and the older generation was exceedingly receptive, too. "Over and over again, I had the experience of, 'Oh, my God. I did LSD in the sixties. It totally changed my life,' " she said.
