Description

Lysergide (LSD) is a hallucinogenic drug that is derived from ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other grains. It is a powerful psychedelic drug that produces intense visual and auditory hallucinations, altered states of consciousness, and changes in perception. LSD is odorless, colorless, and tasteless and is usually taken orally in the form of tablets, capsules, or liquid.

LSD is a powerful drug and can have serious toxic effects. These effects can include increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, dilated pupils, nausea, vomiting, and anxiety. Long-term use of LSD can lead to flashbacks, depression, and psychosis.
