Quantified Trip Reports will enable you to anonymously record and inform the general and scientific community on your unique psychedelic experiences.
You will have access free-text trip reports along with structured, objective scales and clinically validated assessments to make sure you are recording your experiences the scientific way.
Explore potential associations between demographic, contextual, and substance use details, as well as changes in mood, well-being, and cognitive function. Link your wearable devices to deepen the dimensions of your data.
Once you complete the study, you will receive rich, personalized results you can use to better understand your trips and its relations to your health. You will also get updates on how other (anonymous) participants are doing and compare your results to the general population.
We would like to emphasize that this study should not be viewed as advocacy of psychedelic drug use. Its aim is to sample people whose intent to take a psychedelic is already established.

All information obtained during the study will be entirely anonymous. All digital data collection will be self-administered. You will get a unique, randomly generated username and your identity will remain anonymous. Please write down this username and keep it in a secure location. You will need it to login into the app should you lose your phone as well as to access your individual data summary and aggregated data. If for any reason you no longer have access to your QC account, and you do not remember your username, QC will not be able to regenerate your account.
You will never be asked to provide your real name, address, or date of birth. Averaged group data may be published or publicly presented, but it will not be possible to identify individual participants from this data. The Quantified Citizen app will not have access to any of your personal identifying information. Quantified Citizen will only access IP addresses from server logs for security and quality control and will delete them every 48 hours to limit indirect identifiers. Only authorized QC staff can access server logs based on their role and a need-to-know basis in order to fulfill their duties. IP addresses are not included in the data that will be analyzed in this study.
All of the data you enter into the Quantified Citizen app will be encrypted and stored in perpetuity on servers located in Canada. Anonymous data will be accessible to all researchers involved with this study. The data may be accessible to other researchers in the future. Any data you have previously entered into the app regarding the microdosing study will be used in addition to any data you enter in the future.
Data will be kept for 5 years following publication of the research at which point the data on the external hard drive and university’s server will be wiped clean.
