Year this lecture was recorded: 2017

As the founding president of the Heffter Research Institute, a chemist who crafted some of the most important research molecules of this generation and a leader in the psychedelic community, we’re pleased to present an interview with Dr. David Nichols.

He talks about the impetus for his interest in these molecules, the potential dangers of microdosing and the feelings of a chemist whose creations escaped the laboratory and – while doing much good – also caused harm.
