    I know bad acid isn't LSD, but I thought this fits best in the LSD forum.

    So, we all know how bad it is to consume ergot and other toxic lysergic acid derivatives. This can result in a horrible condition called ergotism.

    For the sake of information, has anyone of your my experienced ergotism? If yes, please describe the experience and what exactly it was (ergot fungus, bad acid, etc.).

    There are some interesting experiences in the LSA seeds forum. But this is an interesting question.

    um, nothing like a gangrenous delirium....
    H. Bosch's Temptation of St Anthony is reported to have been influenced by hallucinations of peasants who had contracted a form of ergot poisoning from contaminated rye flour.

    You can only experience ergotism when consuiming a large dose of poorly synthesised LSD?

    Hawaiian Baby Woodroses cause really painful vasoconstriction, esp the back of the legs and armpits. Hurts like hell. St. Anthony's fire was a problem because of a constant ingestion of ergot since all grain was contaminated.
