idosing - December 6th 2014, 05:58 PM

I tried this yesterday... idosing is when you listen to some kind of sound that is supposed to get you high by copying the effects of drugs somehow. Anyway, the first time I did it it was the shrooms one, which was just a disturbing sound that made me feel weird (but I only did it for like 7 seconds, probly a placebo) and the marijuana one put me right to sleep once it was over. The only reason I'd do this is to fix my sleep schedule (Im nocturnal, more or less) but would it be potentially harmful to me?

Wish I lived in Canada. UPDATE, NOV. 9th, 2016: This statement has become even more appropriate.

It's totally harmless, so do it as much as you like. Just be aware that some are not good when paired with heavy machinery. I would agree that what you experienced is likely a placebo, as from my time creating and researching binaurals, it takes a few minutes for adjustment (but then again, it may be different for new ears compared to old ones). Just don't be surprised if some don't work at first, or if you encounter a plateau.

As a personal recommendation for sleep, you should use just the first 15 minutes or so of GoH. Of all the entrainment audio files I've heard over the years, none is quite as perfect as that.
