Owsley's LSD was 250 micrograms, it was very potent and there was no speed in it. It was smooth and it kept you there about 5 or 6 hours in a peek condition.

It was like either Owsely's or Sandoz. Owsely was an independent, Sandoz was a chem co. that Timothy Leary use to develop his formula. They were both some most excellent head food. I don't know where we would be if not for The Happening.

Brightest Blessings on your journey

Owsley started with the purple batch in the fall of 65, when Sandoz could no longer sell it legally in the U.S.

The Pranksters loved it, and so did The Dead.

In fact, I believe Mr. Stanley was the Grateful Dead's first sound man. And used the profits he made from his acid to launch the band.

So Owsley caught on like wildfire in the Haight.

During sometime in early to mid 67 Owsley became far stronger than 250 mikes. Basically because customers demanded it. More bang for the buck, I suppose. I've heard stories from folks who know that The Bear brewed batches of 500 mikes, per tab, by special request, and for special occasions in 68/69. But generally Owsley was in the 250-350 range.

If I remember correctly, I paid 50 cents for my first tab of Owsley in the spring of 68.

Peace out. WE demand it.

I was was told I was using purple owsley on several occations back in the late 60's - but who knows. From what I understand he was a bit reclusive, used to provide it to the Grateful Dead and others on the scene. He gave most of what he made awayHere's a picture of him back in the day .

We didn't get into Owsley's until the late 60s. Sandoz was Uncle Tim's 'Man', and we got ours from him, TL. It was 250 mics, they did later up the dosage for two hitters, to share with your buddy/partner.

First time for me was in 64ish. I had been smokin' reefer and hash, did a few mushies for a while and decided to trip along with everyone else. I had been to the Drop-Ins B4 but did not drop.

This one time I felt compelled to dive right in and join along. I asked my sister if I could and she said cool, so Tim gave me a little vial of purple liquid and I slammed it back and licked the rim.

We were all sitting in a circle outside, under the trees. We were in so cali in Majeska Canyon where my sister n bro in law lived. Majeska Canyon was connected to Laguna Canyon/Laguna Beach, where Mystic Art World was located and was Timothy Leary's HQ more or less for his Brotherhood of Eternal Light. He had a little Phychedelic Church a couple of houses down from my sis n bil house in Majeska Canyon..

We all droped about the same time and started coming on in unisom. I noticed that everyones eyes were getting wider and their mouths were begining to curl up in funny grins.

There was sitar music coming from what seemed a long way away, and laughter trickling into the trees, dancing with the leaves and the Paisely air made ripples as we breathed it in and out.

It was a little unearthing and I would hold my breath bc it sacred me a little. It was like I heard a collective voice in my mind gently coax me to breath. I would realize that I was not breathing and start breathing again.

It was the wierdest feeling, to feel everyone like they were part of you and you them. To not speak but feel what is unspoken.

After I got my breathing in sync with the colors and patterns, I was flyin' high. The men were talking about religion, not the western bible thumping but of distant beliefs that prevolked thought and study.

I could not move my legs. I felt like a sponge, soaking up every vibration. I could see them in the words being spoken. I would reach out to touch them and everyone would giggle.

We ate fruit, cheese, broke bread and drank wine. When we reached our peek we Omed and embraced. We had a few more sessions like this untill the Canyon was burned out and flooding started and ran everyone off.

I would run into Tim and Co when we would visit his headshop from time to time. I later would see Timothy again in San Francisco's Haight Ashbury's Golden Gate Park. He was beyond my reach by then. He was surround by Guru Groupies.

Sorry if that was off topic, the mind seems to float away while remenising. esp about LSD, talk about flashbacks!!

Y'all have a Safe and Happy New Year.
