D-lysergic acid diethylamide has a legend(?) concerning strychnine being present in doses. Further research shows that in less than .5% of doses tested strychnine was present. Anyway does strychnine or LSD build up or are either affected by spinal cord movement? I know that strychnine is neither used in the synthesis, produced by the synthesis, or a possible contaminant of the synthesis. But just look at the structures of strychnine vs Lysergic acid/LSD/etc and you should be able to understand that readily. What causes back cracking/popping to intensify a trip or bring about a flashback.
Re: Why do effects from LSD intensify when popping/cracking the neck or spine?
