Opium for headaches and women's discomforts. Also a favourite recreational habit of the romantic poets Byron, Keats, and Shelley. Art and literature abound with tales of the pleasures and dangers of burning the midnight oil.
ONE IN A MILLION!! New addition to my poison/quack medicine collection! 1947-1959 Sandoz Pharmaceuticals L.S.D. (ACID) UCLA Testing/Research Trial bottle. I knew these had to be out there somewhere but NEVER thought I would find one!! The bottle itself is a very crude, early ABM bottle, mold seem go's all the way up through the lip, also has LSD printed/pressed in the top of cork. Very Neat Bottle!!
Cannabis Cough Syrups ~ "Cannabis indica is one of the best additions to cough mixtures that we possess, as it quiets the tickling in the throat, and yet does not constipate or depress the system as does morphine." --- Practical Therapeutics (1895) By Hobart Hare"
