LSD : The Drug With Many Aliases

Posted on: April 12, 2019, by :

LSD, as we know has many street names, many of which you have never heard before and you will never use.

Nonetheless, if you ever find yourself desperate to impress a fellow junkees or companion, you can use any of these many ancient and obscure names out of your Harry Potter hat of tricks.

  • Acid
  • Battery Acid (strange)
  • Blotter
  • Boomers (mostly used to describe psilocybin, not LSD)
  • California Sunshine
  • Cid
  • Doses
  • Dots
  • Golden Dragon
  • Heavenly Blue
  • Hippie
  • Loony Toons
  • Lucy
  • Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds
  • Microdot
  • Pane
  • Purple Heart
  • Superman
  • Tab
  • Window Pane
  • Yellow Sunshine
  • Zen

You know those public outcry abominating LSD? The ‘illusions’ claiming that LSD Drug will make you go mad, make you paranoid, and, even comically suicidal? Its just worth laughing and taking another gram.

Anyway, among those LSD Drug street names, the most fascinating is the “yellow sunshine”. I LOVE IT !!

 

How Long Does LSD (1p-lsd)  Last?

You may begin to feel the effects of one tab of acid within 20 to 90 minutes of ingesting the drug.

Although the average acid trip can last anywhere from 6 to 15 hours, most trips won’t last more than 12 hours. After your trip is over, you may experience “afterglow” effects for another six hours.

Between the initial trip and the comedown, it can take up to 24 hours before your body returns to its typical state of being.

Traces of acid will be detectable in your urine for five days and in your hair follicles for 90 days after ingestion.

Read on to learn more about what to expect during a trip and why these effects last so long.

What is LSD Drug exactly, and why do its effects last so long?

Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD DRUG), or acid as it’s commonly known, is a potent, long-lasting psychoactive drug. In part, it’s derived from a fungus that grows on rye and other grains.

The synthetic drug has a chemical structure similar to serotonin, a “feel-good” chemical in your brain. When acid molecules land on serotonin receptors, they cause LSD’s well-known visual and physical effects. This includes color and shape distortions, hallucinations, and other psychedelic effects.

LSD drug molecules bind more strongly to serotonin receptors than serotonin itself. When the molecules nestle into the receptor pockets, amino acids within the receptor put a “lid” over the molecules. This traps the molecules in place.

The LSD  drug’s effects won’t begin to fade until the molecules are knocked off or come loose from the serotonin receptor. This can take anywhere from 6 to 15 hours. It all depends on the potency of the drug, your size, and any other medications you might be taking.

How is it used, and is it safe to ingest?

Acid is a colorless, odorless liquid. For consumption, an acid manufacturer typically drips the liquid onto absorbent, colorful paper squares called blotter papers. Each blotter paper can have several “tabs,” and one tab is usually enough to induce a trip.

LSD is also sometimes sold as capsules, pills, or sugar cubes. In each form, the LSD is diluted with other chemicals or products. Potency for each LSD product varies, and there’s virtually no way to know how much LSD is in any form you take.

LSD is considered a safe and nontoxic drug when taken at standard doses. LSD toxicity, or death from LSD, is rare.

You’re more likely to have a “bad trip” — a distressing psychedelic episode — than you are to experience physical harm.

What might you experience during an acid trip?

LSD is a psychoactive drug. The effects of the drugs often alter your perception of your environment, your body, your mood, and your thoughts. What’s real and what’s imagined becomes less clear during an acid trip.

The effects of an acid trip can be felt in two ways: how acid affects your body and how acid affects your brain.

Effects on your brain/perception

LSD creates powerful hallucinogenic effects. Your senses are heightened during a trip, and everything in your environment may feel amplified.

During an acid trip, you may see:

  • brighter colors
  • morphing shapes
  • trails behind objects
  • unusual patterns
  • “noisy” colors

LSD can also amplify your mood. If you take acid when you’re feeling good, you may feel more relaxed, happy, or content. You may also become exuberant and joyful.

If you take acid while you’re upset or angry, you may grow more upset or frustrated during the trip. Take your current mood into account before you decide to trip.

Effects on your body

During an acid trip, you may experience:

  • increased blood pressure
  • faster heart rate
  • higher body temperature
  • nausea
  • dry mouth
  • shakiness
  • insomnia

These symptoms should subside completely within 24 hours.

Are there any negative side effects or risks?

Little research about the long-term effects or risks of LSD is available, but LSD is generally considered safe and well-tolerated. The risk of death and severe consequences is low.

However, negative side effects are possible, and the use of LSD does carry some risks:

Bad trip. During a bad acid trip, you may feel scared and confused. You may experience hallucinations that leave you terrified and distraught. Bad trips can last as long as good ones, and there’s no way to stop the trip once it begins. You can expect the effects to linger for up to 24 hours after the bad trip begins.

Tolerance. Tolerance to acid develops quickly. Repeated acid use may require larger doses in order to reach the same effect. However, this tolerance is short-lived. If you stop using acid for a period of time, you’ll lower your threshold for what’s necessary to trip.

Flashbacks. Hallucinogen persisting perception disorder is rare. It causes sensory disturbances similar to what you experienced during a trip. These “flashbacks” can occur days, weeks, or even months after your last acid trip.

Psychotic issues. LSD use may trigger schizophrenia in people who are predisposed to the condition. However, this connection remains unclear.

Legal troubles. In the 1960s, U.S. state and federal governments declared LSD an illegal, controlled substance. It remains such today. That means if you are caught with the drug, you may face prison time, fines, or probation.
