What is Micro-tripping?

Totally on drugs.
Microtripping is the practice of taking tiny doses of LSD to enhance normal, day-to-day function. Those who microtrip take about 10 micrograms (about a tenth of a normal dose) every three days or as needed. It has the potential to improve creativity, concentration, sensory experience, mood, and general functioning.

I'm planning on trying it to help with my playwrighting sometime soon, so I'll let you know how it goes. My friend Barrett swears by it for attending concerts, because you have positive mental effects allowing you to better enjoy the music, but does not render you too incapacitated to function in the practical, physical world. Have you ever tried it? What do you think?

  1. I do this all the time with mushrooms when I'm trying to write music or even playing a show. It works great for me! Oddly enough when I mention it to my friends they act as if I'm wasting it or something, they seem to deny that there is any sort of middle ground with psyches.

  2. Great idea! While I haven't ever gone about my daily week-day life on psychedelics, less intense trips are sometimes great in themselves.

    Thanks for the awesome comments, btw! :)

  3. I did just this quite a lot from around 1987-1996, didn't know it was called microtripping, I called it 'maintenance'. It definitely helped open me up, but then again sometimes being too open has its downsides, like you can't just close up again just because your mom came in the room.

    Actually I've been on effexor and wellbutrin since 2003 and found it's really achieved what I wanted the maintenance / microtripping to do for me, but it only did about half the time (kind of like forever trying to balance on a seesaw), I salute mainstream pharmacy because all I ever wanted was to maintain a nice mood and creative stimulus to keep writer's block and depression at bay, and my anti-depressants work for that! The years of microtripping might help with that, as does starting SSRIs so late in life (late 30s). Anyway, good show!
