LSD

Lysergic acid diethylamide (also known as LysergideLSD-25LSDLLucy, and Acid) is an iconic semisynthetic psychedelic substance of the lysergamide chemical class that produces what are now considered to be “classical psychedelic” effects (i.e. those associated with mescalinepsilocybin mushroomsLSD, and DMT) when administered.

Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)

In 1938, Albert Hofmann, a Swiss scientist, synthesized LSD in his laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland. He unexpectedly discovered its hallucinogenic effects in 1943 when a tiny amount came in contact with his skin.

Is an extremely powerful hallucinogen, and has immense therapeutic, spiritual and cultural potential. Is commonly distributed in various forms for oral or sublingual administration.

In many research reports, hallucinogens are often lumped together as a single class of drugs, so, unfortunately, statistics are not as informative as statistics on other non-hallucinogenic drugs.

When ingested into the human body, acts as a 5-HT (serotonin) receptor activator, while also dramatically increasing serotonin levels in the brain by deactivating systems that regulate serotonin levels. Has been as a tool in self-exploration for personal and spiritual growth since its invention.
