LSD

Lysergic Acid Diethylamide

 

LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide), know as acid, microdot, dots, blotter acid, window pane, sunshine or boomer, is a mind-altering substance. It is manufactured from lysergic acid, which is found in ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other grains. LSD is typically in liquid form and added to blotter paper, paper tattoos, sugar cubes, smarties or  sweet tart, making it easier to transport, consume and hide. 

The liquid is colorless, odorless and tasteless. The effects of LSD can be unpredictable depending on the amount taken, the user’s mood, personality and expectations. Physical effects include dilated pupils, increased heart rate & blood pressure, sweating, sleeplessness, dry mouth and tremors. Sensations and feelings are dramatically effected. Some users say it can switch the senses and report seeing sounds and hearing colors.
