  1. The 6 S's of a psychedelic journey - Set - Setting - Substance - Sitter - Session - Situation

    Adapted From Chapter 19 of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide by Jim Fadiman If you have any familiarity with LSD use, you’ve probably heard the expression “Set and Setting.” It was coined by Norman Zinberg to describe the context for psychedelic drug experience and has become widely accepted by researchers in psychedelic therapy. Unknown to most others, however, are four other S’s: substance, sitter, session, and situation. Although these four S’s do not play as primary a role as Set and...

  3. Long-term systemic treatment with lysergic acid diethylamide causes retinal damage in CD1 mice

    As a classical hallucinogen with high potential for abuse, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) can cause long-lasting abnormalities in retina, but little is known about the exact mechanism. This study was to investigate effects of long-term systemic treatment of LSD at low dose on retinal damage and understand the underlying mechanisms. CD1 mice were treated intraperitoneally with 0.1 mg/kg or 0.2 mg/kg LSD daily for 2 months, mice treated with saline as negative control. Electroretinography...
  4. Treatment of Childhood Schizophrenia Utilizing LSD and Psilocybin

    From the Newsletter of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies MAPS - Volume 7 Number 3 Summer 1997 - pp. 18-25 Treatment of Childhood Schizophrenia Utilizing LSD and Psilocybin Gary Fisher, Ph.D. Now that the FDA has permitted research with LSD and psilocybin to resume, we feel it is important to share examples of a remarkable experiment, the results of which were not sufficiently taken into account because this line of research was prematurely halted in the...
  5. Could LSD be the newest treatment for depression?

    Serotonin pathways activated by hallucinogens parallel those of antidepressants According to a study at the University of Basel, lysergic acid diethylamide, or “LSD,” a psychedelic drug, could be used as a form of treatment for depression and other mood disorders. Although current research on the underlying mechanisms of hallucinogens like LSD is lacking, recent findings show that it interferes with serotonin — a neurotransmitter related to mood and appetite regulation — much like common...
  6. Tune In, Drop Out: The Timothy Leary Papers Are Now Available to the Public

    The last words of the psychedelic psychologist Timothy Leary are said to have been the phrase “why not?” muttered over and over until he went over to whatever state of consciousness awaits the brain after a person’s final breaths. For a man who so densely annotated his own work, as an investigation in the newly open-the-public Timothy Leary papers at the New York Public Library shows, it seemed sort of like a final subscript of openness on a life that had taken him from higher academia...
  7. "Weak" LSD? Advice please

    To address a few of the issues discussed here (and in about 1000 other threads I think...) Could it be weak LSD? Sure.... dosage varies in current market between 30-60 micrograms on average. If it is in liquid, it is more likely to be lower dosage, as common laypersons will add extra water or alcohol to spread their profits out when selling, which is unfortunate. On blotter is is less likely to be lower dosed and can usually count on it being closer to 50 micrograms per "hit", but then...
  8. LSD's got a hold on me!

    haha, if anyone's ever seen that video of the kids back in the 60's trippin balls, you'd know what I'm talking about. Good news though, the title's misleading kind of, but this has nothing to do with addiction! This is swim's experience with LSD for the first time: "At one point in my life, I suddenly decided it was his time to try LSD, and looked for it for a year. Finally, a friend of mine came up to me and told me of his powerful experience with this, chemical. then he popped the...
