I wasn’t that surprised to see the lack of helpful information Google provides me with when searching the question ‘‘What is liquid LSD?’’. As you may be able to guess, the top-ranked links on this topic are websites that have a ‘say no to drugs’ policy.
In this article, I hope to offer you an alternative point of view and provide quality information, answering the simple questions that may pop into your head when thinking about LSD. This article will be short and sweet!
Let’s start with the basics.
What is LSD?
Essentially, LSD, also known as lysergic acid diethylamide or acid, is a psychedelic substance. This compound falls into a category called Lysergamides and is one of the world’s most well-known hallucinogens to date! The effects of this substance can be extremely mind-bending and profound. LSD typically heightens and intensifies emotions, thoughts, and sensory perception. While taking a micro-dose (between 5mcg-10mcg) offers no ‘high’, anything above this amount can be considered psychoactive. At higher doses (100mcg or more) you can expect extreme visual and auditory hallucinations.
It may also be interesting if I give you a briefing on the origins of LSD. Funny enough, I am actually writing this article on ‘Bicycle Day’ of 2022! But what is bicycle day?
Exactly 79 years ago on the day that I am writing this article, a Swiss chemist named Albert Hofmann ingested a small amount of LSD, a compound he invented. During the time of this event, he had to ride his bicycle home from his laboratory due to the transportation restrictions during the war.
On April 19th, 1943, Mr Hofmann had the first-ever LSD trip! He explained his bicycle ride home that day to be ‘heavenly’. A truly legendary tale.
What is liquid LSD made of?
Lysergic acid is made from alkaline hydrolysis of Lysergamides, such as ergotamine. This is a substance that is typically derived from the ergot fungus on agar plate. This fungus grows on rye and other grains. LSD is synthesized into a crystallized formation that can be used to produce various forms, such as tablets, blotters, gummies, and liquid drops.
Liquid LSD is perhaps the most classic form that LSD comes in. In fact, it seems to be the most sought after form, as well.
While synthesizing LSD crystal is an extremely complex process that has a long list of steps and room for error, getting LSD from crystal form to liquid is not as long of a process.
Essentially, liquid LSD is made of LSD crystal that is carefully dissolved into a suitable solvent at a very specific temperature. If the temperature is too high, it will evaporate and break down the compound, disrupting the desired potency of your drops.
What does liquid LSD feel like?
The LSD experience is very unique to each individual. You never know what to expect when embarking on an LSD trip. However, here are a few common symptoms that you can expect.
- Intensive visual and auditory hallucinations
- Heightened senses
- Sensory misfire (eg, hearing colours or smelling a sound)
- Enhances emotional pallet
- Inexplainable sense of one-ness
- Boost in energy and stimulation
- Laugh attacks
- Irregular body temperature regulation
- Ego death
- Time becomes irrelevant
- Dissolved sense of reality and ‘self’ or ‘identity
- An overwhelming sense of love and acceptance
- Deepened connections with loved ones
However, doing LSD is not always sunshine and rainbows! The risk of having a ‘bad trip’ is always there and can be extremely terrifying. A bad trip can look like extreme confusion, paranoia, crippling anxiety, and unfriendly visual/auditory hallucinations.
Additionally, the concept of time does not exist during a trip, which can make things very tricky. For example, you may feel as though you are going to be having this experience forever since the past and the future no longer exists as a concept in your mind. Another common occurrence is the sense that you are stuck in a time loop, which can be very discombobulating and can result in a panic or deep fear/dread.
You are always taking the gamble, however, many individuals have stated that they have felt grateful looking back at ‘bad trips’ they have had. Furthermore, most individuals who have tried magic mushrooms or LSD have reported that doing psychedelics was the ‘single most impactful experience’ of their life!
