1-Acetyl-N,N-diethyllysergamide (also known as ALD-52, 1-Acetyl-LSD, 1A-LSD, 1A-LAD, and mistakenly as Orange Sunshine) is a novel synthetic psychedelic of the lysergamide chemical class that produces “classical psychedelic” effects reported to be virtually indistinguishable from those of LSD when administered. It is a closely related structural analog and a suspected prodrug of LSD, meaning it is inactive until it enters the body and is converted into LSD.
ALD-52 was originally discovered by Albert Hofmann in his study of LSD analogs, but it did not enter mainstream awareness until psychedelics came to occupy a central role in the 1960s Western youth counterculture. ALD-52 gained public notoriety when it supposedly distributed in the 1960s as LSD under the now-famous name “Orange Sunshine.” This was later disproven.ALD-52, also known as 1-acetyl-LSD, is part of the Lysergamide group. Originally discovered by Mr Hofmann, but not popular in the 1960’s. ALD-52 UPAC: (6aR,9R)-4-acetyl-N,N-diethyl-7-methyl-4,6,6a,7,8,9-hexahydroindolo[4,3-fg]quinoline-9-carboxamide. Our ALD-52 is sold in 100µg Blotters form, ideal research.
