LSD-25 what a noble compound. Bred from the hands of Hofmann at a time when experimental research was at its peak. Albert Hofmann single handedly synthesized the ergot friendly compound and accidentally ingested it through trans-dermal contact. Many people around the world are familiar with 4:20 and it's implications it has on weed culture. But, very few know that 4:20 stretches beyond the pot etched fumes of bong smoke. The Day when Hofmann accidentally dosed acid, otherwise coined as Bicyle Day, has been the driving historical impetus that forever transformed the psychedelic scene forever. That's a bold statement, but it's true. Psychedelic exploration before LSD surfaced was almost non existent on a global scientific scale. Mescaline was in its infancy stages and mushrooms were a long shot from the vast terrains of Mexico. It was LSD that turned on the world. Some would be curious to say why LSD advanced the science of psycho-pharmacology. I would bet it had to do a great deal on the magician up-work of government paid scientist to market and herald its discovery. But, LSD was not the only problem child to be erected from the scientific beaker. LSD-25 was the looming star to ravish the '70 teens in a frantic Timothy Leary uproar. Others were synthesized but long forgotten about. Sure, perhaps Orange Sunshine made an impact once LSD was regulated and went underground. But, ALD-52 is nothing but a retrospective speculation on a synthesis to negate any illegal wrong doing. Unfortunately, that proposal didn't stand up in court and Sands was sentenced as a result. Now we hang on precedent of time and history. Now, were pumped full with enough research academia that it would make the most scientific patron lose his mind. We haven't struck gold but we've barreled out 55 gallon drums full of neon encrusted lysergamides. How, did we go from a LSD shortage to vendors offering the most novel LSD analogs on the planet while alluding the law? Orange Sunshine is here for good until the regulatory hammer says different. This clearly illustrates that research chemicals have become a cash cow and in essence have devalued the price of traditional drug markets. It's more economically feasible to purchase lab grade ALD-52 or 1P-LSD than it is to buy black market LSD. Is this a problem or a solution for those who seek out these transcendental compounds?
