LSD is a relatively uncommonly abused drug that belongs to a group of substances known as hallucinogens. Hallucinogens cause distortions and changes to perception, which cause a high known as a “trip.” The effects include unusual sensations and thoughts, and LSD can induce vivid hallucinations.
LSD is commonly found as a small piece of paper that acts as a carrier for the liquid form of the drug. This little square of paper material has been soaked in the drug and allowed to dry. It is placed in the mouth, usually under the tongue, where the drug is absorbed quickly into the bloodstream. Each dose of LSD is referred to as a “hit.” LSD can also be found in liquid form and is usually stored in small vials.
Although there’s a fair amount of debate about how long LSD stays in a person’s system, it is usually only present in detectable levels in the urine for 72 hours. But this period can vary from one to five days depending on the individual and their drug consumption. How heavily the drug was used will affect this time, as will the individual’s unique physiology and health habits.
LSD is not addictive in the traditional sense of the word. However, when any substance is misused and taken to avoid or escape reality, the potential for psychological dependence can occur. There have been cases of people who’ve abused LSD regularly. However, such instances are uncommon. The riskier aspect of LSD consumption comes from its effects on the mind and the person’s perception of reality. For a small percentage of the population predisposed to certain mental health disorders like schizophrenia, hallucinogens like LSD can trigger a break from reality that precipitates the condition.
LSD is most commonly taken sublingually. As discussed above, the hit or hits are placed under the tongue and may eventually be swallowed. However, that isn’t necessary to produce its effects. Once the drug is taken into the bloodstream, it takes about 45 minutes for the effects to occur. LSD may also be consumed by oral ingestion, like drinking a liquid that contains a liquid form of the drug.
