Microhuasca: Microdosing Ayahuasca

How and why to microdose ayahuasca

In this microdosing podcast with Microhuasca founders, Álvaro Zárate and Adolfo Schmitt, we are fortunate to gain their perspective and wisdom on many topics related to microdosing with ayahuasca, and how to successfully integrate full dose or microdosing experiences, so that these can help foster sustained transformation.


Microhuasca is a Peruvian organisation that facilitates microdosing programs with ayahuasca for people who want to microdose and professionals. Dr. James Fadiman recognizes them as one of the leading voices in the microdosing movement - he introduced us, and we have been exchanging knowledge, methods and experience ever since.

Álvaro Zárate is the co-founder of Microhuasca and of Cosmovision, a nonprofit that unites psychedelics professionals to create and execute initiatives in community. Before, he served for 10 years as one of the forerunners of the startup movement in Peru, where he helped build responsible founders and incubators for Latin America.

Adolfo Schmitt is co-founder and director of operations of Microhuasca, forestry engineer, researcher and conservationist of Andean Amazonian biodiversity for more than a decade, including amazonian medicinal fungi. He is now committed entirely to the investigation of medicinal and master plants.
