What is LSD?
Lysergic acid diethylamide, known more commonly as LSD, is a compound fungus derived from rye and other grains. LSD is a hallucinogenic drug that can alter perceived senses, making false auditory, tactile, and visual sensations seem real. LSD, even at a small dosage, is an extremely potent drug that produces significant effects that may continue for many hours. LSD is typically found in the form of liquid, pill, and powder. The Drug Enforcement Agency currently lists LSD in the Schedule I category, meaning it has no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “LSD does produce tolerance, so some users who take the drug repeatedly must take higher doses to achieve the same effect. This is an extremely dangerous practice, given the unpredictability of the drug.”
Signs of Abuse
LSD has had many side effects for users, depending on the dosage taken. Common signs of LSD abuse include:
- Gastric bleeding
- Increased body temperature
- Irregular respiration
- Mood swings
- Nausea and vomiting
The user’s reaction to LSD vary from individual to individual and as a result of this, the drug is typically unpredictable. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) states that, “one trip may be filled with brilliant hallucinogenic sights and sensations, mind expansion, as well as euphoric feelings of oneness with the universe; while, another trip may bring anxiety, panic, fear, and depression, despair, and solitude of disappointment.” The unpredictable and dangerous nature of LSD addiction is seen in the mental effects which often manifest as delusions, hallucinations and even “severe, terrifying thoughts and feelings, fear of losing control, fear of death, panic attacks, and so on,” according to the NCBI.
