LSD Powder (Lysergic acid diethylamide)
LSD Powder (Lysergic acid diethylamide) is one of the most potent, mood-changing chemicals. It is manufactured from lysergic acid, which is found in the ergot fungus that grows on rye and other grains.
LSD Powder (Lysergic acid diethylamide) is derived from ergot, a fungus that grows on certain grains, and a non-organic chemical called diethylamide.
It stimulates serotonin production in the cortex and deep structures of the brain, by activating serotonin receptors.
These receptors help visualize and interpret the real world. The additional serotonin allows more stimuli to be processed that usual. Normally, the brain filters out irrelevant stimuli, but with LSD this is not the case.
The power of this drug makes it popular, as does its portability. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, LSD is one of the only hallucinogens available that can be sprayed on and soaked into pieces of paper. When people want a fast high, they can simply place this paper on the tongue and let the drug diffuse into the body.
Even though LSD is popular, it cannot be considered safe. That is due, in part, to the chemicals that go into the production of LSD. Any of them could be dangerous to the body, the brain, or both.
Once people take LSD, it crosses into the brain and triggers chemical reactions that can last for hours. Some people experience a form of flashback syndrome in which the experiences of the high recur when the person has not taken any LSD. Researchers are not quite sure why this syndrome happens to some people and not others, but it suggests that LSD stays active in the body for much longer than anyone expects. It might even be reasonable to suggest that it stays active forever, as it maintains the ability to trigger flashbacks for a nearly permanent period of time.
So even though LSD could be considered at least partially natural, it cannot be considered safe. And as a result, experts advise people who abuse the drug to stop doing so as quickly as they can. Treatment programs can help, as can support group work and family support. There are no medications that could be used to help people deal with LSD cravings, but there are other medications that could assist with common mental health concerns caused by LSD abuse, including depression, insomnia, and anxiety.
LSD can cause pupil dilation, reduced appetite, and wakefulness. Other physical reactions to LSD are highly variable and nonspecific, some of which may be secondary to the psychological effects of LSD. Among the reported symptoms are numbness, weakness, nausea, hypothermia or hyperthermia, elevated blood sugar, goose bumps, heart rate increase, jaw clenching, perspiration, saliva production, mucus production, hyperreflexia, and tremors
The most common immediate psychological effects of LSD are visual hallucinations and illusions (colloquially known as “trips”), which can vary greatly depending on how much is used and how the brain responds. Trips usually start within 20–30 minutes of taking LSD by mouth (less if snorted or taken intravenously), peak three to four hours after ingestion, and last up to 12 hours. Negative experiences, referred to as “bad trips”, produce intense negative emotions, such as irrational fears and anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia, rapid mood swings, intrusive thoughts of hopelessness, wanting to harm others, and suicidal ideation. It is impossible to predict when a bad trip will occur.Good trips are stimulating and pleasurable, and typically involve feeling as if one is floating, disconnected from reality, feelings of joy or euphoria (sometimes called a “rush”), decreased inhibitions, and the belief that one has extreme mental clarity or superpowers.
