Microdose Presents " Psychedelics - Sports": A Bold Exploration of Psychedelics In the Lives of Professional Athletes

By: Issuewire

Toronto, Nov 19, 2020 ( - Microdose Psychedelic Insights, along with The Conscious Fund, are pleased to present a new event series Psychedelics & dedicated to discussing how psychedelics intersect with mainstream culture. 

The first in this dynamic series is Psychedelics & Sports, a bold exploration of psychedelics and professional sports featuring an all-star lineup of pro athletes. Microdose is pleased to announce Universal Ibogaine, a Canadian company poised to address the opioid epidemic through proven plant medicine, will be sponsoring this first event in the Psychedelics & series. 

Wednesday's live panel will feature top athletes, including former professional hockey players Daniel Carcilo, Riley Cote, and Theoren Fleury. Also joining us are former NFL athletes Eugene Monroe, who played left tackle for the Baltimore Ravens, and Eben Britton, who was the offensive guard for the Chicago Bears. Anna Symonds, USA Rugby player for the Women's Premier League (WPL) will also be one of the distinguished panelists at today's event. 

Psychedelics & Sports will explore the intersection of professional sports and psychedelics, including potential clinical indications (e.g. trauma from sports injuries, LSD microdosing for pain over opioids, etc), and their potential uses for cognitive and possible "performance enhancement".

Panelists will be asked to reflect on the past, present, and future potential of the psychedelic space in relation to injury prevention, clinical treatment, and cognitive/performance optimization. With topics ranging from historical icons, such as the enigmatic major league baseball player Dock Ellis who shattered expectations with his infamous "acid no-hitter", to the unspoken opioid epidemic plaguing high contact sports, this panel is sure to engage and inspire. 

In an effort to galvanize collective action to promote better wellness and mental health, Microdose is pleased to announce 100% of ticket proceeds will be donated to Chapter 5 Foundation and Athletes for Care. Outside of pro sports, our panel of top athletes are activists that advocate for various important issues. The Microdose team is pleased to help support their efforts.   

As psychedelics continue to help us unlock this hidden potential, Microdose's daring new series explores this phenomenon across social and cultural spectrums.
