|(what is this?)|
AL-LAD, also known as 6-allyl-6-nor-LSD, is a novel psychedelic drug and an analogue of LSD. It is described by Alexander Shulgin in the book TiHKAL (Tryptamines i Have Known And Loved). AL-LAD does not cause a colour change with the marquis, mecke or mandelin reagents but does cause the ehrlich's reagent to turn purple because of the presence of the indole moiety in its structure.
Effects in humans
While AL-LAD has subtly different effects than LSD, and appears to be slightly shorter lasting, their potencies are similar; an active dose of AL-LAD is reported to be between 80 and 160 micrograms though there are many reports of higher dosages being taken.
