Practical LSD Manufacture
The harvesting of the rye (ergot) crop should not be done with a
combine, as these machines pass the grains through a sieve. Most of
the ergot would then be lost, as it is much larger than the rye kernels.
Rather, the rye plants should be cut down using a hand or mechanical
sickle, and they should then be gathered up into shocks as seen in old
time pictures or paintings of grain harvesting. Next, the grains should be
beaten off the rye plants into a container such as a bushel basket. We
are talking about old time farming here! The ergot is then
separated from the rye kernels by dumping the bushel basket full of
grain into a tank full of saturated salt solution in water. The ergot
floats to the top of the salt water, while the rye sinks. The ergot is
skimmed off the top of the water, rinsed, and immediately spread out to
dry in the sun. The ergot must not be allowed to get moldy, as this ruins
This procedure is the preferred source for the lysergic acid
amides. It is preferable both to growing morning glory seeds and
Hawaiian baby woodrose seeds because the alkaloid content of the
ergot is about 10 times higher, and also because the ergot has very
small amounts of the clavine alkaloids contaminating it. The case can be
made that the simplicity of the seed growing operations as
compared to growing ergot argues in favor of using that method. My
thoughts on this matter are that ergot is needed for really high quality
acid, and that if a person wants an easy drug to make, he should check

There is an excellent alternative source of ergot for those living
close to the Gulf coast, the Atlantic coast south of New York, and the
Pacific Northwest's Puget Sound. In the saltwater marshes along the
coast, the marsh grass Spartina is subject to a very heavy infestation
with wild ergot. Yields of wild ergot in the range of 150 pounds per
acre are pretty common in areas that have been disturbed, such as by
ditches or in "spoil areas." (See Mycologia, Volume 66, pages 978 to
986 (1974) for full details and pictures.) Harvesting the ergot in this
case would probably be best done in a manner similar to that used by
Native Americans to harvest wild rice. They simply travel through the

grass in a shallow-draft rowboat, bend the heads of grain into their
boats, and beat it off with a stick.
If the choice is made to fuel LSD production using morning glory
seeds, one should be aware that not all varieties are created equal.
Some types of morning glories contain little or no ergot alkaloids. The
best varieties to choose are Heavenly Blues, Pearly Gates or Flying
Saucers. The only growing tips I have to share are to give the plants a
moderate dose of nitrogen fertilizer when they are young to encourage
heavy growth, then switch

About half an hour after ingesting the buttons the first effects are felt. There is a
feeling of strange intoxication and shifting consciousness with minor perceptual
changes. There may also be strong physical effects, including respiratory
pressure, muscle tension (especially face and neck muscles), and queasiness or
possible nausea. Any unpleasant sensations should disappear within an hour.
After this the state of altered consciousness begins to manifest itself. The
experience may vary with the individual, but among the possible occurences are
feelings of inner tranquillity, oneness with life, heightened awareness, and rapid
thought flow. During the next several hours these effects will deepen and
become more visual. Colors may become more intense. Halos and auras may
appear about things. Objects may seem larger, smaller , closer or more distant
than they actually are. Often persons will notice little or no changes in visual
perception while beholding the world about them, but upon closing their eyes
they will see on their mind-screen wildly colorful and constant changing patterns.
After several more hours the intensity of the experience gradually relaxes.
Thought becomes less rapid and diffuse and more ordered. In the Navajo peyote
ritual this change of thought flow is used wisely. During the first part of the
ceremony the participants submit to the feeling and let the peyote teach them.
During the latter part of the ritual the mind turns to thoughtful contemplation and
understanding with the conscious intellect what the peyote has taught the
The entire experience may last from 6 to 12 hours depending upon the individual
and the amount of the plant consumed. After all the peyote effects have passed
there is no comedown. One is likely to feel pleasantly relaxed and much a peace
with the world. Although there is usually no desire for food during the experience
one would probably have a wholesome appetite afterwards.
METHODS OF USE
The most common method of use is simply to chew up and swallow the fresh or
dried buttons after removing the tufts and sand. This is the way it is almost
always done at Indian ceremonies. Most people find the taste of this cactus
unbearably bitter. The Indians, however, feel if ones heart is pure, the bitterness
will not be tasted. Many have found that by not cringing from the taste, but rather
letting ones senses plunge directly to the center of the bitterness, a sort of
seperation from the offensive flavor is experienced. One is aware of the
bitterness, but it no longer disturbs him. This is similar to the practice of bringing
ones consciousness to the center of pain so that detachment may occur. It is not
a difficult trick, but it takes som Australia is now the most happy harmonious and productive place to live
