LSD, which stands for Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, is one of the major drugs people are getting addicted to today. It comes from the hallucinogen class. As the name suggests, this drug is made from lysergic acid which is commonly found in one of the fungus called ergot. This mood-changing chemical is available in many forms like capsules and tablets and in liquid form too. Usually, this chemical is taken orally.
LSD is a drug that is illegal in the United States. This drug is very powerful and it causes thoughts and feelings to become distorted when it is taken. Taking only 100-200 millionths of a gram of LSD can actually cause a person to go on what is called a "trip" and this "trip" can last for up to 12 hours. While many do not think that people become physically dependent on LSD, there is definitely a psychological dependency that can occur.
There are many ways a person gets affected by taking LSD. The amount in which this drug is taken results in the various mood changes of the person. The body temperature soars high, the heart rate increases, and blood pressure rises above normal when consuming this chemical.
Effects of LSD Abuse
When people take LSD, many people end up seeing hallucinations of colors, light patterns, and may also feel that they get new insights into whom they are as a person. In some cases these hallucinations can feel quite scary, but many people find them quite pleasurable as well. One of the effects of LSD is that it can cause you to have flashbacks of your previous hallucinations, which can be very scary. It can cause depression and may even lead people to commit suicide as well.
These were some reasons why you shouldn’t take LSD.
