Not that I'm anything approaching an authority on this since I've never tried LSD, but I remember reading somewhere that the LSD available back then and what's available now are nowhere near the same thing. Something about the stuff back then being a lot purer and less likely to fry your brain. Didn't help ol' Syd Barrett though, did it? Maybe he got ahold of the brown acid.<br><br>

Even "back then" the process of manufacture and precise refinement was close to a black art because it was notoriously difficult. One might as well not even talk about pharmaceutical LSD in this context, because beyond 1966, it was virtually impossible to obtain, by ANYONE. Most of the underground LSD was rife with impurities. Of course "rife" is a relative word, since we're taking such small sizes per dose. But still, there are many who contend that even small amounts of impurities made a big difference in the quality of the experience.

LSD is nothing special. It's kid's candy compared to Salvia. The strongest hallucinogen I have ever tried has been salvia extract. Short lasting (5-10 min) but because of the loss of time & dimmension, it feels like it lasts for ever. It has changed many people's view on life, and not negatively from what I've seen.<br><br>_________________________________________<br>Just a different kinda geek...

Haven't tried salvia, but I know enough about it. I'm not sure I'd want to put my system through that these days. Back when I was younger, it would've been a much different story.<br><br>The most intense experience I ever had was from a datura extract.<br><br>
