The Discovery of LSD
Meet Hofmann’s magic potion. That was how LSD was called after the Swiss chemist first synthesized LSD-25 in 1938 from a few plants and fungi. For five years the stuff was sitting on a shelf in a lab, without people knowing about the psychedelic effects. The well-known hallucinogenic properties of LSD were only mapped later due to a stupid coincidence.
proved to be a powerful hallucinogen that Hofmann himself was the first to experience. The scientist investigated whether LSD-25 stimulates breathing and blood circulation. While working with the substance, Hofmann accidentally touched his face with his hand. Shortly after the effects started working. Hofmann writes in his notes:
“...affected by a remarkable restlessness, with a slight dizziness. At home I lay down and sank into a not unpleasant daze, which is characterized by an extremely stimulated imagination. With closed eyes and in a dream-like state of consciousness, i saw an uninterrupted stream of fantastic images. Extraordinary shapes with an intense play of kaleidoscopic colors."
Three days later, Albert Hofmann consciously took 250 micro grams of LSD. It was the first time LSD was taken on purpose. Hofmann’s magic potion grew in popularity and was often recreational used in the sixties. LSD is not legal in the Netherlands. So it is a good question if there is an alternative. LSD was made in a laboratory, out of the extract from a mould that grows on grain. Among other things, that extract contains LSA drugs. Nature offers numerous natural psychedelics.
LSA, the Natural LSD?
Albert Hofmann got interested in psychedelics during his career. Mushrooms and also salvia regularly changed the consciousness of the Swiss scientist. It was however a natural hallucinogenic that led to the discovery of LSD: lysergic acid amide, or LSA. LSA occurs among others in Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Morning Glory seeds, but does it look like an LSD trip?
Hawaiian Baby Woodrose
Hawaiian Baby Woodrose (Argyreia nervosa) is a beautiful looking climber that also does well in Europe as long as you keep it free from frost. For that reason, it’s best to cultivate Hawaiian Baby Woodrose in a greenhouse. This stunning, petunia-like flower originates from India. In contrast to other plants from this family, the seeds of Hawaiian Baby Woodrose were not used traditionally for religious, spiritual or recreational purposes.
If you compare Morning Glory with Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, then as well as many similarities you’ll notice a few differences. They are both perennial climbers and their leaf and flower shapes look quite similar to each other. In Europe both plants are treated as annuals due to their lack of frost hardiness. It’s interesting to note that the sweet potato is closely related to Morning Glory and produces virtually the same flowers. The important difference for us between Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Morning Glory is the quantity of seeds needed for a psychedelic effect. More about this shortly.
How Different are LSD and LSA Drugs?
So LSA is present in Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Morning Glory seeds, but does it resemble an LSD trip?
It is said that the effects of LSA are similar to those of an LSD trip. Nevertheless, we want to say that an LSD trip and the workings of LSA are not very similar. The molecules of LSA and LSD have similarities and both trips are indeed psychedelic.
Look at LSD as a refined form of LSA. LSD is unprecedentedly more powerful. For comparison: from 0.02 milligrams LSD already has a hallucinogenic effect. You will need to take hundreds of Morning Glory seeds to get hallucinogenic effects from it. Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seeds contain more LSA, so you need less of them for a comparable effect. 3 to 4 seeds will get the desired result. Morning Glory seeds are ideally suited for LSA micro dosing.
Take Care with LSA Seeds
Seeds that contain LSA drugs may also cause nausea, flatulence and sometimes vomiting. This can make the beginning of an LSA trip (very) unpleasant. However, this isn’t the fault of the LSA itself, but because of other substances in the Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Morning Glory seeds. In the case of, these nasty effects won’t occur though.
