LSD

Courtney Haller

Who the heck made this thing?

LSD was actually an accident, it was never purposely made. “All that 32-year-old Albert Hoffman wanted to do in 1938 was synthesize a chemical compound that would stimulate the respiratory and circulatory systems.” He had gone to work for Sandoz, a Swiss chemical company, in 1929, after graduation from the University of Zurich. Sandoz, founded in 1886, had started out manufacturing dyes and, later, saccharin. There wasn’t even a formal pharmaceutical department until 1917, when professor Arthur Stoll isolated an active substance called ergotamine from ergot, a fungus found in tainted rye that had been used as a “folk medicine” for generations.

In its natural form and in quantity, ergot was a deadly poison and a scourge responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people over many centuries. In 857 in what is now Germany, a contemporary accounting of the events of the year recorded that “a great plague of swollen blisters consumed the people by a loathsome rot, so that their limbs were loosened and fell off before death.”


What exactly is in this drug?

Some blotter and liquid acid has been sold since 2013 in the Americas and Europe contains “NBOMe compounds” instead of LSD. The NBOMe chemicals are active under one milligram, and can cause strong effects even on a single 1/4" square. The blotter or liquid with NBOMe compounds is usually identifiably bitter, where LSD-containing liquid or blotter has a very mild metallic flavor or no flavor at all. LSD is one of the most powerful mood-changing chemicals. It is a clear or white odorless material made from lysergic acid, which is found in a fungus that grows on rye and other grains. LSD has many other names, including Acid, Blotter, Dots, and Yellow Sunshine.


Whats it do to me?

LSD is a very very potent, mood-changing chemical. It is manufactured from “lysergic acid”, which can be found in the ergot fungus that grows on rye and other types of grains. It is qproduced in a crystal form in illegal laboratories, mainly in the United States. These crystals are then converted to a liquid for distribution. It is odorless, colorless, and has a slightly bitter taste. Known as “acid” and by many other names, LSD is sold on the street in small tablets, capsules or “gelatin squares” It is sometimes added to absorbent paper, which then is divided into small squares decorated with designs or cartoon characters to make it look more psychedelic and appealing. Occasionally LSD is sold in liquid form, but its rare. But no matter what form it is in, LSD gives the user the same experience and the same results. LSD users call an LSD experience a “trip,” It will usually last around twelve hours, maybe a little longer or a little shorter. But, it is known that if you are worrying or not in a good state of mind while doing this drug things will go wrong, which often happens, it is called a “bad trip,” another name for a living hell.
