The Women who brought you LSD

Though you wouldn’t know it from most retrospectives, many of LSD’s earliest advocates — stretching all the way back to the 1940s — were women. [For example]… On June 12 of [1943], as part of another experiment, she [Susi Ramstein… lab assistant to Albert Hofmann], became the first woman to take LSD, testing it a total of three times. Unfortunately, the lab where she and Hofmann worked has never released her reports, leaving us to wonder what her sober, arguably more scientific perspective might add to our understanding of the first acid trip.
