How LSD Drug induces short-term psychosis but long-term optimism

When most people think of LSD Drug (lysergic acid diethylamide) ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­the image that comes to mind is hallucinating hippies at Woodstock, but the drug’s original use was psychotherapeutic. As early as the 1960s, researchers showed that LSD reduces depression, anxiety and pain in patients with advanced cancer, and recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the drug’s beneficial effects. In 2014, Swiss psychiatrist Peter Gasser published the results of a study showing that LSD could alleviate the symptoms of severe anxiety disorder. And a 2016 study from Imperial College London showed that LSD could increase levels of optimism and openness for extended periods of time.

The LSD story goes back to Albert Hofmann, a Swiss chemist who first synthesised the compound in 1938. Hofmann accidentally discovered its hallucinogenic effects after ingesting 250 μg (a very large dose!) before his evening commute home. Being the good scientist that he was, he recorded a detailed account of his experience in his notebook. His initial, paranoia-filled reaction was followed the next day by a blissful experience, in which ‘everything glistened, and sparkled in a fresh light’.

Is acid the same as LSD?

Sort of Acid is a street name for LSD, and LSD is a chemical compound. Unfortunately, not all substances sold as “acid” or “LSD” contain just the pure LSD compound. Pure acid would contain 100% LSD. We will try to use the term LSD in this guide, instead of acid tabs.

How can LSD Drug be most beneficial?

What had been clear to Hofmann almost immediately had by this time been observed independently by Osmond and a host of others: for LSD to have the greatest positive effect, subjects needed to take it in a safe, supportive, and aesthetically pleasing environment with a clear idea of what to expect. When difficult issues arose-as they often did-the safe setting and supportive presence of a therapist would allow the subject to process this emotional dynamite, defuse it, and transcend it.

LSD vs Acid

LSD refers to the compound lysergic acid diethylamide – a psychedelic drug.

Acid is a street/slang name for LSD.

LSD and acid are used to mean the exact same thing.

In research, LSD refers to the pure LSD compound, but on the street, just because something is called LSD doesn’t guarantee it contains any LSD – nor does it guarantee that it contains only LSD.

In the same vein: If something is called acid, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not real LSD, and that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s pure LSD.

If you’re using LSD/acid, it’s always a good idea to test your substance.

Are the effects of LSD and acid the same? Yes, assuming your LSD is pure and your acid is pure LSD!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
