Effects of LSD
LSD is a mind-altering drug. This means it acts on your brain (central nervous system) and changes your mood, behavior, and the way you relate to the world around you. LSD affects the action of a brain chemical called serotonin. Serotonin helps control behavior, mood, the senses, and thinking.
Also, LSD is in a class of drugs called hallucinogens. These are substances that cause hallucinations. These are things that you see, hear, or feel while awake that appear to be real, but instead of being real, they have been created by the mind. LSD is a very strong hallucinogen. Only a tiny amount is needed to cause effects such as hallucinations.
LSD users call their hallucinogenic experiences “trips.” Depending on how much you take and how your brain responds, a trip may be “good” or “bad.”
A good trip may be stimulating and pleasurable and make you feel:
- As if you are floating and disconnected from reality.
- Joy (euphoria, or “rush”) and less inhibition, similar to being drunk from alcohol use.
- As if your thinking is extremely clear and that you have superhuman strength and are not afraid of anything.
A bad trip can be very unpleasant and frightening:
- You may have terrifying thoughts.
- You may have many emotions at once, or move quickly from feeling one emotion to feeling another.
- Your senses may become distorted. Shapes and sizes of objects are altered. Or your senses may “cross over.” You may feel or hear colors and see sounds.
The danger of LSD is that its effects are unpredictable. This means when you use it, you do not know if you will have a good trip or a bad trip.
How fast you feel the effects of LSD depends on how you use it:
- Taken by mouth: Effects usually start in 20 to 30 minutes. The effects peak in about 2 to 4 hours and last up to 12 hours.
- Shooting up: If given through a vein, LSD’s effects start within 10 minutes.
How to Dose on LSD (Acid)
Firstly, These guidelines are designed to maximize the chance of lasting positive benefits, and to minimize the chance of any off putting experience.
Many LSD users are instead seeking to optimize fun instead of lasting positive benefits and safety, in which case some of these guidelines may not apply. For example, if optimizing more for fun and less for safety, a user may prefer not to use a blindfold and headphones, and may choose to drop acid at a festival or in nature instead of in a safe home environment.
We believe the most important tips that should be followed by everyone regardless of their purpose for using acid are:
- Avoid with LSD-dangerous health conditions
- Avoid drugs that interact with LSD
- Have a trusted, sober guide who is experienced in supporting psychedelic sessions
- Respect psychedelics
- Test your LSD
