Documentary - Hofmann's Potion (An Open-Minded Look at LSD)

From Documentary Heaven, a nice, open-minded and compassionate look at Albert Hofmann and the discovery of LSD. Besides archival footage of Hofmann himself, there are some big names who offers their experiences in this film: Ram Dass, Stanislav Grof, Abram Hoffer, Aldous Huxley, Laura Huxley, Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner, Humphrey Osmond, and others.

Hofmann’s Potion (2002)

This documentary offers a compassionate, open-minded look at LSD and how it fits into our world. Long before Timothy Leary urged a generation to “tune in, turn on and drop out,” the drug was hailed as a way to treat forms of addiction and mental illness. At the same time, it was being touted as a powerful tool for mental exploration and self-understanding.

Featuring interviews with LSD pioneers, beautiful music and stunning cinematography, this is much more than a simple chronicle of LSD’s early days. It’s an alternative way of looking at the drug… and our world.
