As you might imagine, Truko the Elephant was not the first being to experience an LSD trip. Well then, who was, you ask? In 1983, Swiss scientist Dr. Albert Hofmann developed Lysergic Acid Diethylamide-25 or LSD.
Five years later, he accidentally absorbed a tiny dose through his fingertips. He had to stop working as he experienced intoxication, dizziness, and two hours of mind-bending hallucinations. Three days later, he took 250 micrograms, which is 10 times the threshold dose for humans and later claimed that it was a miscalculation.
This is in no way recommended; however, Hofmann survived the experiment and continued to study various psychedelics in nature and support the use of LSD in many psychoanalytical studies.
