The Hofmann Collection

The Hofmann Collection Reviews
The Hofmann Collection: Research papers on LSD and psilocybin collected by Dr. Albert Hofmann over 40 years in his position of Director of Research, Sandoz Corporation. All 4,000 papers are now available for view on the Erowid website. Much of the research conducted was performed by investigators who had very little or no understand of psychedelic substances and their remarkable potential when knowledgeably administered. For those who wish to have an understanding of the true potential and valuable applications of LSD and similar psychedelic substances, we are selecting the papers produced by knowledgeable investigators and providing brief reviews of their published papers. If a paper is found to be of interest, a single click will take you to the home page of the paper on the Erowid Website. Here one may read an Abstract if available. To read the entire paper, click on Full Text in the Black box on the left-hand side. If you do not have a rapid server, it may take some time for the article to come up.
The list below is of the papers that have currently been reviewed. New papers will be added to the list as reviews become available.
The Hofmann Foundation is very much indebted to the volunteers who have offered their services in providing reviews of important papers.
