I recently went on a whirlwind tour of LA for my new book Boundless. I sat in on and hosted plenty of panels and Q&As—and recorded the best of the best of all of them for your listening and educational pleasure!

In the first part of this episode, you'll hear me on a panel with Dr. Darshan Shah of NextHealth, with whom I have collaborated on multiple podcasts, including:

After the panel with Dr. Shah—in which we discussed sleep, habits, routines, rituals, longevity, biohacking, parenting, spirituality and much more—you'll hear the Q&A we recorded at that same event.

In the second part of this episode, you'll hear a separate Q&A recorded at the second book launch party at The Bungalow, in which we cover deep sleep, REM sleep, sex hacking, plant medicine and psychedelics, NAD best practices, sirtuins, and a host of other interesting topics.

So sit back for a wild biohacking Boundless ride (and if you haven't yet purchased your copy of my new book Boundless, you can grab it here).

    Hello Ben

    great content! The “Know to manage stress” part was really amazing and since I am totally new to Biohacking sleep I found that really interesting.

    Thanks for your work.

  2. Jacky says:

    The podcast recommends “Higher doses of CBD (300-600 mg)”…

    The affiliate link to the BioCBDlink site says “Each capsule contains 10mg hemp CBD extract”…

    In order to get 300 mg of CBD from these capsules before going to bed as Ben seems to recommend you would have to consume the entire $99 bottle of 30 capsules.

    This seems like a mistake. Can you please clarify how much CBD is recommended for sleep?

  3. Great content! But I am also interested in the answer to Trevor’s question.

  4. Megan says:

    What does your plant medicine ceremony entail?

  5. John says:

    Love your content, Ben! Quick question, I found this and would be grateful if your or anyone could comment on its use for making cocktails. Thanks!

  6. Trevor Hess says:

    Hi Ben,

    I noticed you don’t mention 5-HTP for sleep. Is there a reason for that?
