The most famous hallucinogen or the symbol of the hippie movement – LSD, or lysergic acid diethylamide, is one of the most commonly encountered drugs. What are the specific effects of the substance, how to actually recognize LSD or how to treat addiction if an individual develops it on the drug? You will learn all this in this article.

Effects of LSD

LSD belongs to the so-called "hallucinogenic drugs", i.e. substances with a hallucinogenic effect. Their job description is to change the quality of consciousness, the overall psyche as well as the intensity and depth of experience. After taking the drug, the sensory perception is affected, the surrounding reality and the person themselves are also experienced differently. The drug does not cause hallucinations in the true sense of the word, we are talking about so-called pseudo-hallucinations that have a basis in the real environment.

Effects usually appear within half an hour, maximum within ninety minutes after taking the drug, and last for 12 hours. However, with the mentioned pleasant conditions, there may also be a feeling of slight trembling, alternating temperatures of the human body or dizziness, nausea.

States of bliss, which are the reason why LSD is used, occur in an extreme version mainly after taking a larger dose of the drug. However, they can lead to a terrifying fear for life. This is the other side of the imaginary coin. Other side effects of LSD include panic terror or a rapid change in a person's body proportions, which affects the individual's psyche to a large extent. In addition, a person may feel confused, unable to estimate the distance, and have a disturbed overall perspective.

Symptoms of LSD

The symptoms of using this drug are not very different from other addictive substances. As a rule, dilated pupils, loss of control over reality appear, insomnia, dry mouth or loss of appetite may also occur, as well as associated weight loss caused by a lack of food consumed.

How to recognize LSD

LSD is a drug known since 1938, when it was synthesized by Albert Hofmann in the laboratories of an unnamed company. Today, it appears on the market in two forms, in the form of paper and gel. In the Czech Republic, the first form is more widespread, where the pieces of paper are soaked in a clear liquid (or the pieces of paper are often replaced by pills soaked in the same liquid), LSD in the form of a gel is mainly known abroad, and the benefit of this form is mainly the ability to dose the amount of the drug better and more precisely.

What are the risks?

Like other drugs, LSD is a high-risk substance that should not be messed with. Not only does the temperature of the human body, blood pressure, or general nausea and dizziness occur, especially a high amount of the drug used can cause disorders of thinking, relationships, and feelings that someone is trying to harm a person, or so-called paranoia.

Compared to meth, long-term use leads to physical dependence, which subsequently lays the foundation stones for psychological dependence as well. It then causes anxiety and resulting depression, or other psychological problems may arise, ending in psychiatry or hospitalization.

How to treat LSD addiction

  • If you have registered an addiction to LSD, the first thing you need to do is keep calm.
  • Then arm yourself with patience and a strong will, which will come in handy when weaning off.
  • Call a doctor or visit a doctor. It will be necessary to be under supervision, either because the person will be frightened, but also because of possible hallucinations.

What is the range after LSD

The recovery time after LSD, or the period of intoxication, is relatively short, as is the duration of the effects themselves. This state lasts for about six to eight hours, and we may feel hungover. Thoughts tend to be scattered, very accelerated, generally disorganized.

How long is LSD in the blood and in the saliva or urine?

Since LSD is usually taken in very small amounts, the occurrence in saliva, blood or urine is relatively short. In the blood, the substance is recognized for two to four hours, in the urine it is detectable for about twelve, exceptionally twenty hours. It is the same with saliva as with blood.

How to get LSD out of the body?

In this case, the effects of the substance wear off by themselves. It doesn't take too long, a few hours at most, but you can solve the resulting conditions independently. Many users find it helpful during this time to avoid stressful places or situations, or to only be with those they feel comfortable with.

What is an LSD trip?

LSD trip is just another name for taking LSD. It is the name for the aforementioned piece of paper, which is impregnated with an addictive substance, printed with various motifs.

LSD and the present

Although we are still talking about a drug with a minimal probability of developing addiction, perhaps that is also why the substance is being researched in the fight against various diseases. Several researches are currently underway in which scientists are interested in the effects of LSD on severe migraines or the so-called psycho-spiritual crisis.

Unfortunately, this research also has a negative effect, which is the fact that it reaches more and more people and that it gets more and more media coverage. This also greatly contributed to the fact that LSD became a very dangerous drug, the same risk as meth or cocaine.
