    How is ALD-52? Anyone tried it? Please describe the experience.

    here is the TIHKAL entry:

    ALD-52. 1-Acetyl-N,N-diethyllysergamide. This material has been explored in the 50-175 microgram range and there are a number of human trials reported, with varying conclusions. One found that there was less visual distortion than with LSD and it seems to produce less anxiety and was somewhat less potent than LSD. Another report claimed it was more effective in increasing blood pressure. Yet another could not tell them apart. ALD-52 just may have been the drug that was sold as "Orange Sunshine" during the "Summer of Love" in the late '60's. Or "Orange Sunshine" may have been, really, LSD. This was the focus of a fascinating trial where two defendants were accused of distributing LSD, whereas they claimed that it was ALD-52 which was not an illegal drug. The prosecution claimed that as it hydrolyses readily to LSD, for all intents and purposes it was LSD, and anyway, you had to go through the illegal LSD to get to ALD-52 by any of the known chemical syntheses. The defendants were found guilty. And yet, I do not know who has actually measured the speed or ease of that reaction. If ALD-52 hydrolyses so easily to LSD, and the body is indeed a hydrolytic instrument, then these two drugs should be absolutely equivalent in every particular, This is the ergot equivalent of the psilocybin to psilocin argument, except this is an acetamide rather than a phosphate ester.

    Hmm quite interesting. I never have even heard of such a thing but the idea interests me greatly. I assume it is not yet illegal although I guess with the laws it would be since it is similar to lsd.

    Damn Alfa, your bringing back some old memories. If this is Orange Sunshine it was the most sought after acid around 68, 69, 70, I can remember still asking about that drug in the mid 70's it was so good. If I can remember right it was a four way tab, it was an easy acid, meaning the jaw clenching, the stiff neck and the mouth watering was minimul. I would put it in a Catagory A. My wife of over 35 years, reminds me that it was a verysensual trip, intensifying the whole sexual experience and I tend to agree.Ithightened your senses, every touch, every thought, every soundwas more intense. Everything and everyone seemed beautiful. The only down side to it was coming down, you wanted to stay on this plain.


    By the way, I've never had a bad trip on any acid.

    Back in 1971, I went to school in Boston. There was a young lady (hippy chick) whose name was "Orange Sunshine". She had way cool connections and always had orange sunshine acid, big orange barrels about 1/4 inch long, $2.00 a hit.That was some crazy shit. Hmmmm... bring back Orange Sunshine.


    Orange Sunshine forever!!!!!!


    Very visual, lots of trails and vivid fractals. Rainbow colors and very auditory (bells, sirens, "hejmege"). Smells like burned plastic.Everything has a very plastic taste. Tremendous body rush and laughter. Color "auras". Peak lasted about 3 hours. Entire trip about 10 hours. A half hit was a pretty good trip. A whole hit was goofyland. 2 hits was a definate freak out, you'ld puke from an LSD overdose. You'ld be "spongy" for a couple days after. To the uninitiated, very easy to "freak out" on.Oh, we called this "Christmas Acid" because she would bring in orange and green barrel hits. It was the same stuff, just on a different colored base medium.

    that sounds more like STP than any LSD derivative searcher...


    but anyway, if it WAS ALD=52 it would have to be kept in a freezer until doses were given.

    That does sounds like STP, which was the street name for DOM.
    Unfortunately, it was pressed into tabs that had much too high a dose
    in them, almost twice what I would consider a good, intense trip, and
    became illegal very quickly before it had a chance to catch on...
    Still, somone found me some at one point, and I'd say that it's one of
    the best trips I've ever had.

    I remember ALD-52.
    To my knowledge if indeed "Orange Sunshine" was Ald... it was the first I knew of. After that there was a variant called "Orange Barrels". The last I knew of were the "Christmas Barrels", they loked just like the Orange Barrels but were mixed orange and green tabs... all were STRONG. The barrels were stronger, IIRC, than the Sunshine.
    There were two guys who went into the Community Crisis Center on Peachtree St in Atlanta to make a quick buy of a couple of barrels. The seller informedthe buyers that they were 8-way hits... sure, right... being paranoid the buyers dispached the barrels on the spot. It seems that they were indeed 8-way hits and mst probably were VERY freshy made. The two guys made their way back to their motel room a couple of blocks away. I was told that the next thing the buyer remembered was lying on the bed looking atthe TV. (Early cable TV had a row of analog clocks, barometers, thermometers, etc that scrolled back and forth across the screen.) The clocks etc would come onto the screen from the side and when they got to the middle of the screen they would break completely apart in a jagged crack and fall in two pieces down off the TV screen.
    Very few tabs of anything ever ade this person, this SWIM, have a mamory lapse. I have been told that ALD is more intense but LSD is much clearer... more intrusive into the psyche, more visual.
    Long ago and far away...

    from denmark
    20 y.o. male
    Body weight approx: 73 kg
    dose taken: 1,5 tab - each of 125 µg
    route of administration: orally
    Setting: in a cozy little 1. persons apartment. We were two takers and one sitter
    duration of main effects: The standalone effect of the lsd duration was approx. 6 hours and during the deceleration I added a mixed joint which swiftly lifted me into the peak once again.
    main effects: Change in perception, able to feel and see sounds, all becoming one (melting together), philosophical thoughts, mind expanding troubleshooting in everydaylife problems, calmness and ease.
    side effects: Tired afterwards, the trip mixed with joint sent me far away - not recommendable; do lsd alone and you will get the best effects.
    after effects: Clarity, tiredness (naturally on the day after)
    rating of the experience: 4/5
    addictive qualities / abuse potential: No addictive qualities if used properly. If used as a reality getaway ticket addictiveness may arise, but that can happen with almost anything tbh.
    any other valuable information: I recommend only to do LSD if you desire to troubleshoot yourself, to see things with clarity. Use it as medicine, and it will treat you as a patient. Ab-use it and it will ab-use you.
