See https://selfblinding-microdose.org/

 

The Beckley Foundation and Imperial College London are excited to launch a new, innovative study on psychedelics microdosing. The objective of the study is to test whether psychedelics microdosing has any effects beyond the placebo on psychological well-being and cognitive function.

 

The unique component of this study is a set-up procedure that allows self-experimenters to implement their own placebo control. We call this a ‘self-blinding’ study design. Self-blinding both increase the scientific merit of the study and introduces an interessting guessing game for the participants - did I take a microdose or a placebo today? This element of unknown will make the microdosing experience more engaging and self-reflective as well.

It is an interesting study. Only pertaining to Blotter based drugs. Not plant based and you have to supply your own.

Sadly I'm rather cynical how the quality of the study results will be perceived; given this rather unique study design.
