The Many Effects of LSD

By: Brittany Moody

Some of the many life altering effects about LSD include...

  1. An usual trip lasts for up to twelve hours.
  2. LSD started becoming publicly known around the 1960s.
  3. LSD, also called Acid, comes in many forms. Including, but not limited to, liquid doses and blotter paper.
  4. The National Household Survey on Drug Abuse showed that an estimated 20.2 million US citizens from ages 12 and up have used LSD at least once in their lifetime.
  5. The effects of LSD are very unpredictable and you can often have a "bad trip". Where the user experiences their fears brought to life in a hallucination.
  6. LSD was first synthesized in 1938 and medical experts believed that it was a cure for both alcoholism and various mental illnesses.
  7. The drug can make it seem as if your senses have "crossed over". Meaning that you can see sounds or hear colors.
  8. It is possible that weeks or months after taking LSD you could have a "flashback" and feel the same effects of the trip as you did when you had initially gotten high.
  9. LSD is often synthesized from a fungus found on rye grass.
  10. LSD is not considered addictive, but it is still one of the most dangerous drugs out there. The drug produces tolerance so that the user will have to take a higher dose than the time before to get the same extent of trip.
