LSD also known, as lysergic acid diethylamide was first produced synthetically in 1938 and introduced as a psychiatric drug in 1947. It is manufactured from lysergic acid, which is found in ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other grains.
LSD is a controlled substance, known as being one of the most mood altering chemicals. Commonly known on the streets as “acid” it is normally sold in tablets, capsules and occasionally in liquid form.
Low doses of this drug may temporarily impair the ability to make sensible judgments and have the understanding on common everyday dangers. It may also cause confusion, short attention span, impaired memory and difficulty with abstract thinking.
Withdrawal symptoms can consist of HPPD (Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder), depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, impaired memory, lessoned attention span, mental confusion, and difficulty with abstract thought, psychological dependence, and suicidal thoughts.
LSD’s effects can normally last from 6-12 hours depending on the dosage, tolerance, body weight and age. Approximate values for detection periods are 12-24 hours for urine tests, 2-4 days for blood and oral fluid tests, and is undetectable through hair follicle testing.
