Q: Is there any way to change LSA (from morning glory seeds) to LSD?

A: Yes, it is possible to chemically change pure LSA into LSD regardless of the origin of the LSA. This is one of the methods (although not the primary) used to create LSD on the underground market.

It is hypothesized that the primary method of underground LSD production is through the use of diverted Ergotamine tartrate (used medicinally for migraines) which is then converted into Lysergic Acid.
