News reports are talking about the benefits people are getting from microdosing drugs of all kinds. Some people have begun to microdose LSD for better productivity at work.

Since the earliest periods of human history, we have been using one particular herb in a number of ways. It is an ancient herb—one that promotes healing, happiness, and relaxation.
