LSD

LSD or Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (li-ser-jic acid die-ethil-a-myde) also known as acid, tabs and trips was discovered by scientist Albert Hofmann in 1938 and became increasingly popular as a recreational drug in the 1960s. In the past it has been used for treating some psychiatric illnesses as well as alcoholism however it is now an illegal drug.

LSD is a strong psychedelic (trippy) drug. It can alter your senses and thinking, causing colours to appear more vivid and music to sound clearer. It also increases your heart rate and blood pressure. People using it can experience a high, spiritual insight, wakefulness and reduced appetite as well as a feeling of time slowing down, confusion, anxiety and paranoia.

The dosage is dependant on purity and route of administration. An average dose for sublingual administration is around 75μg
(this dose should not be taken as a recommendation). The concentration of LSD on blotter paper may vary considerably
and people taking LSD should be careful with doses and start with a half or quarter. Blots should be halved by cutting diagonally across the paper.

A trip can last from 8-12 hours depending on the dose although users may experience effects (flashbacks) for days, weeks and occasionally years afterwards.
