LSD is one of the powerful psychedelics, consisting of the psychoactive substance d-lysergic acid diethylamide.
It is a semi-synthetic drug, as lysergic acid is obtained from ergot, a fungus that parasitizes rye or other crops.
LSD comes in pills, capsules and sometimes in liquid form, which means it is usually taken orally. LSD is often impregnated into paper, which in turn is divided into small pieces, marks, each equivalent to one dose. Liquid LSD is taken with a sugar cube.
The action of the liquid LSD can manifest itself from 20 minutes to several hours – that is, during this period, you can decide that the drug is not working, and take an additional dose, which is fraught with complications and poor psychological state.
The effects of liquid LSD use, called “trips”, can be quite long lasting, on average up to 12 hours.
A trip is influenced by many factors – a person’s mood, his sense of self, comfort and the people around him.
If, before taking liquid LSD, a person feels panic, insecure and uncomfortable with the people around him, the trip will most likely be bad and similar to a horror movie.
Some people can hurt themselves during bad trips, especially if they had a bad mood, depression, or anxiety before starting to use.
Under the influence of liquid LSD, the senses and sensitivities of the body intensify and change. A person who has taken this drug may experience several feelings at once or jump instantly from one emotion to another. Liquid LSD in large quantities can cause hallucinations. A person’s sense of time and self-perception changes. The senses can be intermingled, and as a result, colors can be heard and sounds can be seen.
These changes can be frightening and panic-stricken – the effect of taking liquid LSD is called a bad trip. Some people who use liquid LSD experience feelings of despair, fearful thoughts, fear of losing control, fear of insanity and death.
The effect of liquid LSD is highly dependent on the amount. As a result of the use of acid, the pupils dilate, the body temperature rises, the heartbeat accelerates and the blood pressure rises. You may also experience increased sweating, loss of appetite, insomnia, tremors, and dry mouth.
Also, once having used liquid LSD, the sensations of the trip can emerge at any time, even a year after the trip. This can continue for a sufficiently long time that it can cause disturbances in social and professional activities.
Most of those who have taken liquid LSD self-reduce the frequency of acid use or stop using it altogether.
