We present the father of LSD, Dr. Albert Hofmann. The Swiss scientist who first synthesized lysergic acid diethylamide.

The man is a hero to the Free Mind movement and you may see his kindly acid loving face on many a tie-dye t-shirt.

Here’s a gorgeous animationĀ of his infamous ‘bike trip’, a story we discuss on this weeks MK Ultra Podcast, where Hofmann absorbed a huge hit of LSD and went to cycle home because his tummy didn’t feel so good.

Tell us what you think!
