The definition of LSD is lysergic acid diethylamide. Other names for LSD are blotters, acid, trips, etc. LSD is a hallucinogen. The effects of this drug are very unusual, some of the the effects are visuals of colored patterns behind the eyes, a sense of time distorting, and crawling geometric patterns. This explains why people refer to there high as a “trip”. LSD is one of the most mood altering drugs. With taking large doses of LSD your body starts to create delusions and vision hallucinations. And some of the physical effects are loss of appetite, loss of sleep, heart rate rises, blood pressure and body temperature increases, etc. The drug is usually a liquid which is dropped onto a perforated sheet. Most of the time there are little designs that are squares which get detached for the sheet. Unpleasant reaction to the drug may include depression, fear and anxiety. This causes you to have a bad trip. LSD is illegal. And this drug is taken by mouth, it is an odorless and colorless. But it has a bitter taste to it.
