What is LSD?

LSD is synthetically made from lysergic acid, which is found in ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other grains. It is so potent its doses tend to be in the microgram (mcg) range. It's effects, often called a "trip", can be stimulating, pleasurable, and mind-altering. It some cases it can lead to an unpleasant, sometimes terrifying experience called a "bad trip".

LSD is usually found on the streets in various forms, for example:

  • blotter paper (LSD soaked onto sheets of absorbent paper with colorful designs; cut into small, individual dosage units) - the most common form

  • thin squares of gelatin (commonly referred to as window panes)

  • tablet form (usually small tablets known as Microdots) or capsules

  • liquid on sugar cubes
