by Otto Snow

At age 15, Otto developed hemi-paraesthesic migraine headaches. The
migraines resemble a stroke. He was given narcotics, barbiturates and
ergot alkaloids. The drugs are toxic and were making him ill. He learned
of a new medication that might help. It is safe in comparison to
conventional migraine medications. The drug was LSD-25 and it worked.

His physicians would not prescribe LSD so Otto entered the world of LSD.
Several laboratories provided him and other patients with the
medication. Included are comments and research from the greatest
scientists of the twentieth century. Personal satori experiences. At
nineteen, Otto discontinued his exploration of LSD. Today, LSD remains
safer and more effective than any migraine medication on the market,
development is necessary and is not being done.

LSD is the most comprehensive book ever written on the synthesis of LSD.
Otto includes the reactions and the chemistry behind the reactions. Many
simplified reactions (e.g. diethylamine from vodka, lysergic acid
directly from Claviceps sugar culture, coupling agents from scratch).
Extractions translated to English.

LSD is written by someone who has been there and knows the
subject/chemistry first hand. LSD is as popular today as it was in the
1970s and 1960s. For many it is a party drug, for others it is a
medication. The Decade of the Brain heralded in a new interest in
psychedelics and their medical application.

"It is a thing of Beauty!" Dr. Alexander & Ann Shulgin.
