    LSD is an hallucinogen, back in the 70's (I think) is when it was big and people was jumping off of houses because they thought they could fly. Also LSD makes you dehydrated and may also give you a nightmare rather than a high. Does this help or more needed? (My moms a nurse so I know a lot)

    .Normally, the first effects of LSD are experienced thirty to ninety minutes after taking the drug. Often, the pupils become dilated. The body temperature can become higher or lower, while the blood pressure and heart rate either increase or decrease. Sweating or chills are not uncommon. LSD users often experience loss of appetite, sleeplessness, dry mouth and tremors. Visual changes are among the more common effects—the user can become fixated on the intensity of certain colors. LSD comes in several forms. Tabs of paper, liquid drops, sugar cubes, pills, or even powder. When the blotter paper is placed on or underneath your tongue, the LSD begins to diffuse into your blood stream. The potency of the LSD becomes more distributed throughout your bloodstream and steadily begins to take effect within the first 20 minutes. More intense tripping begins within a half hour of ingestion with some feelings in the body often called a body high that resembles a tingling sensation. This is the proverbial tip of the iceberg though. After about one to one and a half hours after ingestion visuals begin. Modern lsd effects can include visuals of objects distorting their shape, size and position in space. Things in everyday life that normally wouldn't fascinate you, can often seem incredible while high on LSD (Acid). Stronger lsd can cause the subject to see colors that come in waves like an ocean. Often times, inanimate objects can come to life, and things that normally wouldn't make sounds, make sounds, and things that normally wouldn't look cool, look cool. It's virtually indescribable, and the only way to truly experience the amazing effects of Acid is to try it The world through your eyes seems to be shown through a projector on an ocean. The resulting is a highly active visual experience. Another effect is a blurring of objects. You can see where a moving object was and where it is simultaneously. Besides the visual effects are the effects lsd has on the brain and serotonin and dopamine. This can be technical so ask someone more knowledgeable but one of the effects of these interactions can be a great increase in mood. People under the influence of lsd commonly feel relaxed, happy and peaceful. The increase in seratonin levels in your brain cause a somewhat ecstatic mood, where laughing, smiling, and even dancing can become desirable. Lsd has also been known to create fear in some who get anxious about the results of the drug. Since a dose hundreds of times greater than the dose taken recreationally is needed to die from overdose, many frightened individuals suffer mostly from fear itself and nothing worse may occur. The duration of an lsd trip can last from four to twelve hours or more, directly related to dosage. Contrary to myth, lsd does not stay in the system in your back and therefore no one can get high on lsd by cracking their back... Although, flashbacks are common in past users. The chemicals in LSD take years to completely leave the body, and it is common to have minor 10-20 second flashbacks while doing an everyday activity. I, personally, experience flashback every once in a while, and actually think they are somewhat entertaining. Things start t distort, and even sometimes appear to be melting. Although LSD is extremely potent, it is not the most powerful drug. DMT (Dimethyl tryptamine) causes far stronger hallucinations than other hallucinogens, even LSD. Hallucinogenically, a good dose of DMT is to LSD what LSD is to cannabis.
