LSD

LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) is a psychedelic substance synthesized using ergot fungus. Its psychedelic properties were unintentionally discovered by the chemist Albert Hofmann in 1943. LSD ignited a worldwide cultural revolution in the 1960s and ‘70s that influenced art, music, literature, and challenged the establishments of society. It is currently being researched for potential therapeutic benefits in the treatment of severe depression, end-of-life anxiety, as well as PTSD, addiction, and cluster headaches.
