Albert Hofmann

Jan 11, 1906 - Apr 29, 2008


Albert Hofmann was born in Baden, Switzerland in 1906. He graduated from the University of Zürich with a degree in chemistry in 1929 and went to work for Sandoz Pharmaceutical in Basel, Switzerland. With the laboratory goal of working towards isolation of the active principles of known medicinal plants, Hofmann worked with Mediterranean squill (Scilla maritima) for several years, before moving on to the study of Claviceps purpurea (ergot) and ergot alkaloids.


Over the next few years, he worked his way through the lysergic acid derivatives, eventually synthesizing LSD-25 for the first time in 1938. After minimal testing, LSD-25 was set aside as he continued with other derivatives. Four years later, on April 16, 1943, he re-synthesized LSD-25 because he felt he might have missed something the first time around. That day, he became the first human to experience the effects of LSD after accidentally ingesting a minute amount. Three days later, on April 19, 1943, he decided to verify his results by intentionally ingesting 250 ug of LSD. This day has become known as "Bicycle Day" as Hofmann experienced an incredible bicycle ride on his way home from the lab.


In addition to his discovery of LSD, he was also the first to synthesize psilocybin (the active constituent of 'magic mushrooms') in 1958. Albert Hofmann, known as the 'father of LSD', continued to work at Sandoz until 1971 when he retired as Director of Research for the Department of Natural Products. He continued to write, lecture, and play a leading role as an elder in the psychedelic community until his quick and relatively painless death from a heart attack at the age of 102.

Лека му пръст!



Вече знам какво липсва на велосипедните ми преходи :)


Трябва да се опитам да отпразнувам "деня на велосипеда" подобаващо някой път :) Иначе... бащата на LSD доживява 102 годишна възраст... Егати рекламната кампания :) Уж дрога, уж те убивало... човека си карал колело, приказвайки си с пътните знаци и маркировката, ама доживя 102 :]

трипчето първоначално е замислено като лекарство и по случайност става това, което става :laughing:

алберт хофман казва, че лсд може да ти отвори очите, но за това има и други средства - музиката, танца, чувствата ;)

Напълно подкрепям! Против химическите, фармацевтични методи за себеосъвършенстване съм, казаното беше по-скоро на шега. Предпочитам нещата да си стават по старомодному... Макар и вече сериозно да се замислям за Isostar...

доколкото съм запознат е изгубил представа за времето, връщайки се от лабораторията...цветове, ала бала...после като се е прибрал неодушевените предмети са му говорели и са били живи...на моменти си е мислел, че е умрял и е в ада...съседката му донесла мляко да убие отровите...такива работи общо взето за този ден :D
