Lysergic Acid And Nitrogen Trioxide

From Lysergic Acid Method 5 CCCC 27,1590(1962) (Cerny To a suspension of 13.4 g dry (I) in 800 ml dry dimethyl-formamide (DMF) in a 2 L vacuum flask at 20 , add a solution of 8.9 g N.N'-carbonyldiimidazole in 250 ml DMF and stir at 20 in dark for one-half hour. Add a solution of 4 g DEA in 50 ml DMF and let stand two hours at 20 then twenty hours at 5 . Evaporate in vacuum to get LSD. Can purify as above or dissolve residue in 2Vz L 2 tartaric acid extract with ether and discard ether. Filter,...

Amphetamines from Allylbenzenes J ACS 91,5648(1969) To a cooled and stirred solution of 100 ml acetonitrile and 64.8 g mercuric nitrate, add slowly 0.2M of the allylbenzene (keep temperature below 30 ). Stir one hour at room temperature, cool and add 200 ml 3N NaOH, then 200 ml 0.5M NaBH in 3N NaOH. After one hour saturate the water layer with NaCl and extract with ether. Dry and evaporate in vacuum the extract to get the N-acetyl-amphetamines. This procedure may not work with the...

Mescaline And Friends

Mescaline and related alkaloids are found in varying amounts in cacti of the genera Lophophora, Gymnacalycium, Stensonia, Mammillaria, Ariocarpus, Opuntia, Trichocereus, Pelecyphora, and probably others. Members of the Native American Church do quite well with the dried cactus, but extraction of mescaline is desirable since the pure compound seems to produce fewer unpleasant side effects (e.g., nausea). For an excellent review on the occurrence and chemistry of the mescaline type compounds, see...

Harmaline And Other Betacarbolines

Although some of the compounds of this group occur in plants used as hallucinogens for millenia by the aborigines of South America and elsewhere, very little scientific work has been done on them. The Homa of Asia Minor appears to be Syrian rue (Peganum harmala) from which harmaline was first isolated. Harmaline is a-bout three times less potent than the 6-methoxy isomer, and very probably the 5-methoxy isomer will be even more active. The 6-methoxy isomer is also called 10-methoxy-harmalan....

Tetula Ki Poriman Tartarik Acid Take

Since Hofmann's first trip in 1943, great deal of interest has been generated in the occurrence and properties of various lysergic acid derivatives. Fungi of the genus Claviceps, which grow on rye wheat, rice and other grasses, were the first natural source of these alkaloids to be discovered. In recent years related compounds have been found in the genera Penicillium (the blue-green mold that also produces penicillin), Aspergillus, and Rhizopus (the black bread mold). These compounds are now...

The original 100 kilos of dried coca leaf that it takes to produce 1 kilo of pure cocaine costs approximately 200. The kilo of pure cocaine will eventually be worth over 200,000 when sold to users in 25 pure gram quantities. The illicitly manufactured cocaine from the various clandestine cocaine labs in South America, is smuggled to various countries including the United States for black market trafficking and use. Those involved in the smuggling of cocaine vary from a one man operation to...

Marijuana Thc and Analogs

Cannabis sativa has been a cherished friend of an ever-increasing proportion of mankind since prehistoric times. The genus Cannabis contains only this one species, but its appearance and psychedelic properties vary tremendously depending on growth conditions. It seems to have originated in Asia, but its medicinal properties and the long fibers in its stem used to make rope (hemp) have led to its being carried all over the world. The early American colonists brought seeds with them and George...

Some widely tested synthetic cannabinoids The A1 and A (6) THCs with the n-pentyl in the 5' position (obtained by using olivetol in the syntheses) are naturally occurring and hence illegal, but the A3 THCs and the numerous isomers, homologs and analogs of the A1 and A*(6) compounds are probably legal. Apparently, recent federal legislation outlaws delta-1, delta-1(6), delta-3,4-THC's, both cis and trans and D and L and compounds. This still leaves hundreds of legal cannabinoids. THC refers to...

Psychedelics And Society

Primitive man likely began altering his consciousness with psychedelics very soon after he first evolved into a creature that we could term human. Virtually every area of the world possesses some plants with psychedelic properties, and man seems to have a remarkable ability to.find just which roots and leaves are most effective in blowing his mind. Unfortunately, Western Europe and North America contain few psychedelic plants, and even though primitive man may have brought marijuana seeds and...

Magic Mushrooms And Other Indole Trips

Various trees, vines, etc. and mushrooms containing dimethyl-try ptamine (DMT) and analogs have been used by the natives of Central and South America for millennia. Precise chemical and botanical identification have been made on a number of species, the first and most famous of these being certain species of mushrooms of the genus Psilocybe, species of which are found in the U.S.A., Canada, Scotland, Australia, etc. as well as Central America. Psychedelic species of the closely related genera...

Cocaine

The leaves of Erythryoxylon coca, from which cocaine is obtained, were used by the Incas at least 1,000 years ago. The annual consumption of coca leaf in South America (mainly Bolivia and Peru) by about twenty million users amounts to about 150,000 pounds of cocaine. They chew their leaves with lime (CaO, etc.) which degrades cocaine to ecgonine but this compound still relieves hunger and fatigue. Cocaine produces little effect orally, so sniffing is the preferred route of administration....
