The DBA has recently estimated the total number of
clandestine LSD labs operating in the United States at only 100,
with most of them located in northern California. This
alarmingly low number of labs leaves the supply of LSD in this
country at constant peril. Further, the concentration of
production in so few hands has left us awash in a mediocre
swill comparable to the beer spewed out by the major brewers.
This distressing situation results from the convergence of a
series of factors. The botanical sources of lysergic acid are not
easily available in large quantities. The actual production of
LSD from these botanical sources is a touchy and involved
operation. These roadblocks, however, pale in comparison to
the most important factor — the inaccessibility of good
information to those motivated to put it into action.
I can think of no other area of organic chemistry which, to
we common working pot-boilers, is shrouded in as much
mystery, or is as thoroughly obfuscated as the production of
LSD. The scientific articles dealing with this topic are barely
readable by the typical person with an undergraduate degree in
chemistry. They assume a level of understanding of the arcane
Practical LSD Manufacture
field of lysergic chemistry not generally possessed by even
those skilled in the "cooking arts."
The "underground publications" covering this topic have
done little to clean up this situation. They have merely
regurgitated the original unintelligible works until they have
become like mantras, repeatedly chanted and not understood.
It is here that this book shall break new ground. Rather than
presenting this field as a magic act, the sources of lysergic acid
raw materials in nature shall be detailed, and their mystery
removed. The processes required to isolate this raw material
and move it on in pure form to LSD shall be expounded upon.
Common threads shall be drawn between the various
procedures to show what variations in technique are acceptable,
and which produce the disappointing commercial product we
are all too often cursed with.
A special added feature of this book will be the result of my
own investigations into the production of the most wonderful
psychedelic: TMA-2, derived form the roots of the calamus
plant. For those unable or unwilling to wade through the
difficulties that attend cultivating ergot, or growing crops of
morning glories, digging up the roots of this common plant
offers a most convenient and low-profile route to an aweinspiring
substance. You will be quite pleased, I'm sure.
The synthesis of LSD is not a task to be undertaken lightly by the
novice wannabe drug chemist. It requires a level of skill roughly
double that needed to produce more conventional drugs such as
methamphetamine. A person contemplating this task should be well
trained prior to beginning the attempt, as learning while "on the job" is
likely to lead not only to failure, but also the probable poisoning
