Beginners Guide: Effects of Acid

  • LSD is a psychedelic compound that was popularized in the 1960s
  • LSD is active at very small doses, in the microgram range


  • There is a risk that what is sold as LSD may not actually contain LSD, and this risk can be mitigated by using the Ehrlich reagent to test the substance
  • LSD is not physically dangerous and is not addictive, but it can be mentally dangerous and cause long-lasting mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder or anxiety
  • LSD can show users repressed memories or emotions, and can exacerbate existing mental disorders or bring on latent ones
  • People who are prone to anxiety or have trouble letting go may have a more challenging time with LSD
  • To reduce the risk of negative experiences, it is important to follow harm reduction practices such as understanding the substance, preparing properly, being in a good mental state, and having a trip sitter present
  • Some risks of LSD include having a negative or traumatic experience, getting stuck in thought loops, and experiencing hallucination persisting perception disorder (HPPD)
  • The rewards of LSD include self-discovery and healing, and the ability to change negative thought patterns.
