Rating: 4.7/5 (9 votes cast)

Hofmann’s Potion offers a sensitive and insightful portrayal of the chemists, biochemists, psychiatrists, and psychologists in the 1940s and ’50s who studied the model of mental illnesses based on brain chemistry over and above the psychoanalytic model in trend at that time and made unprecedented, ground-breaking discoveries in treating mental illnesses with LSD or D-lysergic acid diethylamide.

Yet despite the rigorous standards the researchers adhered to, their work was stifled out by the negative publicity that cropped up because of thrill-seekers on LSD in the 1960s.

This film traces LSD from its initial discovery in 1943 by Swiss chemist Dr. Albert Hofmann, through its heyday in the 1960s counterculture, to its present status as a banned or controlled substance in many Western countries.

    I precisely wished to thank you very much again. I’m not certain what I would’ve undertaken in the absence of these strategies shown by you over such subject. Certainly was a distressing issue in my view, nevertheless understanding the very professional tactic you dealt with that made me to jump for joy. I am just thankful for this work and in addition hope you recognize what a great job you were getting into training the mediocre ones through your webpage. Probably you have never encountered any of us.

  2. I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
