Q: When Lsd is made from morning glory seeds...is it pure lsd-25? What is the procedure of making lsd using morning glory seeds? Is there an easy way to make lsd-25 using a naturally occuring compound? Or is there an easy way to synthesize lsd-25?

A: Simply, the answer is no. The process of synthesizing LSD is a complex one requiring knowledge and equipment beyond those available to any but an advanced chemist with access to a full laboratory. Morning Glory seeds cannot be processed into LSD-25. Rather they contain LSA (also known as Lysergic Acid Amide or LAA) which is closely related to LSD but quite distinct. LSA can be extracted from morning glory seeds, hawaiian baby woodrose seeds, and a variety of other plants sources.
