LSD (LySergic acid Diethylamide) commonly known as ‘acid’ is a powerful hallucinogenic drug otherwise called a psychedelic where users are likely to experience a distorted audio and visual view of reality - ‘hallucinations’. LSD enjoyed widespread recreational use throughout 60,s, 70,s and 90,s.

Taking LSD is known as a ‘trip’. These ‘trips’ which often look like squares of blotting paper  can be unpredictable and either ‘good’ or ‘bad’ but once you’ve started it, you can’t stop it.

Flashbacks can occur up to years after whereby users will relive part of the ‘trip’ – good or bad. People have been known to harm themselves during a ‘bad’ trip so if you’re in a bad mood or depressed it is suggested that you avoid this Class A drug especially as it’s also illegal to have, giveaway or sell.
