Webcast nine will also feature ethnobotanist Dr Liam Engel, who will provide some detail around EGA’s recent guide to building coke bottle terrariums. Make sure to rummage through your recycling and bring two identical double-flanged bottles, something pointy and a pair of scissors for some direct instruction during the webcast. 

Hosted by Nick Wallis & EGA.

Registration for the Microdose Webcasts are free, but donations are encouraged to support EGA's important work (booking fees apply).


Segment One: Methamphetamine to psychedelics, and back again.

Dr Jonathan Brett will give a live update on the upcoming St Vincent’s study of psilocybin psychotherapy for methamphetamine dependence and review important research studies relevant to this work. Jonathan will also discuss the current state of Australian psychedelic research and will conclude by taking questions on his study.

His research interests lie in developing new treatments and models of care in addiction medicine.


Segment Two: Coke bottle tek: A terrarium technique.

 EGA’s new guide to the coke bottle terrarium technique documents a simple, innovative and recyclable way of growing plants from seed.

 Coke bottle tek is a modification of the famous 'take-away tek', which uses plastic bottles for raising cacti and succulents from seed. Coke bottle tek is a set-and-forget technique, allowing plants to become more established with less human intervention, better preparing them for outdoor, in-ground environments and reducing the need for up-potting. Coke bottle tek also represents a more recyclable and environmentally friendly alternative to take-away tek.

Dr Engel is a drug science communicator with interests spanning digital society, psychedelics, harm reduction and ecology. Liam is a regular EGA contributor and propagates a variety of ethnobotanical plants, having a particular fondness for cacti.

TONIGHT: The cutting edge of Australian psychedelic research -  can low dose psilocybin stop or reduce methamphetamine use? Featuring Dr Jonathan Brett of St Vincent’s hospital.


In Dr Brett’s study, participants will have a minimum of three counselling sessions with an addiction specialist, followed by taking a controlled dose of psilocybin under clinical supervision. The dose is small enough to offer a psychedelic effect without adverse side-effects such as hallucinations and/or paranoia. This is then followed-up with further therapy sessions.
