In spring of 1965, John, George, Cynthia, and Pattie had dinner with a London dentist named John Riley -- who concluded the dinner by serving them coffee into which LSD-laced sugar cubes had been placed. Lennon was initially furious. The Beatles &their woman friends left Riley, heading first to the Ad Lib club and then to Harrison's home. Cynthia Lennon vividly describes her nightmarish experience in her book A Twist of Lennon. John Lennon recalled the LSD trip as being "terrifying but fantastic."
"I had such an overwhelming feeling of well-being, that there was a god, and I could see him in every blade of grass. It was like gaining hundreds of years of experience in 12 hours."
That quote is from the Rolling Stone article "Beatles' Acid Test: How LSD Opened the Door to Revolver."
