The Complete Guide to LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide)

Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) is a common recreational drug. It is also commonly known as acid. LSD is usually consumed on small pieces of paper called blotter. We do not endorse the acquisition and use of illegal drugs. If you make the choice to use psychedelic drugs, please do your research.

Legal Psychedelics, Lysergic Acid | Are Psychedelics Good?

If used with care and expertise, there’s a solid argument that psychedelics can do the world a lot of good. Now Rick had an opportunity to work within the system, by the system’s rules, to find, or force, common ground around what he believed to be an incontrovertible truth: psychedelics, used with care and expertise, could do people and the world a lot of good.

Lysergic Acid

Psychedelic Usage Was Associated With Improved Mental Health Indicators

“Lifetime classic psychedelic use was associated with a significantly reduced odds of past month psychological distress (weighted odds ratio (OR)=0.81 (0.72–0.91)), past year suicidal thinking (weighted OR=0.86 (0.78–0.94)), past year suicidal planning (weighted OR=0.71 (0.54–0.94)), and past year suicide attempt (weighted OR=0.64 (0.46–0.89)).

The Two Biggest Risks of Lysergic Acid

  • Fake acid: Ingesting what you believe to be pure acid (pure LSD), but is actually something else, particularly NBOMe which has been involved in a few deaths in the last few years.
  • Doing something unsafe during the ~10 hours of being in a decently altered mind state on the drug. “If someone experiences high anxiety, fear, or paranoia during a psilocybin session, itʼs not hard to imagine them behaving in ways harmful to themselves or others.

What is the probability of having a bad trip on LSD?

This depends heavily on the dosage, your mind state going into the trip, and the environment where you take LSD. We can approximate from a psilocybin mushroom study:

  • At a dosage of 200 micrograms of LSD in a therapeutic clinical environment, we might expect 86% of people to experience some extreme fear, for an LSD-adjusted (increase time to account for longer trip with LSD vs psilocybin) average of around ~22 minutes of strong anxiety, and we might expect around ~65% to report a persisting positive increase in mood from this dosage assuming they had first tried 35 micro-grams, then 67, then 133, then 200.
  • At a dosage of 133 micro-grams in a therapeutic clinical environment, we might expect 14% of people to experience some extreme fear, for an LSD-adjusted average of around ~4 minutes of strong anxiety , and we might expect around ~60% to report a persisting positive increase in mood from this dosage assuming they had first tried 35 micro grams, then 67, then 133.
  • At a dosage of 67 micro-grams in a therapeutic clinical environment, we might expect 0% of people to experience some extreme fear, for an LSD-adjusted average of around ~2 minutes of strong anxiety, and we might expect around ~45% to report a persisting positive increase in mood from this dosage assuming they had first tried 35 micro-grams, then 67.
