Hofmann's Potion

In 2002 Concepta Film finished a film called Hofmann's Potion: The Early Years of LSD. Written and directed by Connie Littlefield and Produced by Kent Martin for the National Film Board of Canada. The documentary delves into the little known early history of the world's most notorious psychedelic.

Long before Timothy Leary urged a generation to "tune in, turn on and drop out," lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, was being used by researchers trying to understand the human mind. This documentary is a fascinating look at the story of "acid" before it hit the streets.

Featuring interviews with many LSD pioneers, Hofmann's Potion is much more than a simple chronicle of the drug's early days. With thoughtful interviews, beautiful music and stunning cinematography, it is an invitation to look at LSD, and our world, with a more open, compassionate mind.

The film features interviews with the following people:
Albert Hofmann
Myron Stolaroff
Stanislav Grof
Humphrey Osmond
Abram Hoffer
Duncan Blewett
Ralph Metzner
Ram Dass
Laura Archera Huxley
