LSD: How many of you folk here have tried it?

I’ve done it twice now. Beautiful spiritual experience every time. You come to realize that you are in absolute control of your experience… If it gets scary – you have the power within you to change the mood of the room just by going inward and breathing – meditating. Others will follow. It’s a very honest drug :)
YEah, took a moderate/lower dose (1 drop).
Walked around, thought about life. Road my bike, sat in the grass.
Wasn’t mind blowing, and I kind of felt on edge because I expected my life to turn around, but alas, never expect anything with psychedelics.
@hollowinfinity, Pretty sure it was LSD due to the energy associated. I felt tense the whole time, like I needed to be doing something, which I’ve heard is often associated with ‘cid.
I don’t know. I get intense anxiety on the come up of trips. Real extreme, its just an instinct of my mind from my first trip, so I always have to deal with that for an hour or so. Then I went on a walk, looked at some graffiti. It just wasn’t as amazing as I expected. I really, really wanted to paint though, but didn’t have any. I started thinking about who I am and what I’m doing. How I felt unfulfilled. I want more, but don’t know where to go. Feel like maybe I’ve betrayed myself in a career path / education. Kept walking around. Got back to my house and realized I probably had 4-6 more hours of this so I woke my friend up, told him we need to go on a bike ride. Biking was great, but not euphoric. Played with my friends dog.
I felt like I was avoiding some extreme underlying questioning of reality, another stemming of my first trip. Now that I look at it I think the entire trip was basically running on a treadmill away from some nasty revelation I had years ago that I tucked away somewhere.
I remember looking at the puppy in the yard and how happy he was, and I got hit by this wave of uncertainty, chaos, and depression. Automatically, like some defense system it just disappeared.
I rode around on my bike some more and I felt like I was pushing for euphoria, TRYING to enjoy the trip. Eventually I sat down under some trees and fell in love with the ground, the trees. I was coming down.
That god damn existential bull shit is so debilitating sometimes!
I think I really just need to go sit in the woods, by myself, and take a large dose. No distractions, just the birds, the trees, and the sky.
The first couple of times I tried acid the doses weren’t strong enough. But the last 3 times I’ve done it I’ve taken 2 tabs and had strong trips every time. First time I really tripped was just about perfect. On the beach, very psychological and mind-expansive experience. I had done shrooms before so it wasn’t exactly life-changing-epiphany status but it definitely helped me build and develop upon some ideas and perspectives I was already aware about.
The second time, which was Friday at Coachella this year, I took 2 tabs at the same time and they were quite a bit more potent than the two I had taken the last time around. Started getting visuals about a half hour after dropping–much quicker than what I’m used to with psychedelics. Visuals started getting pretty intense and about 3 hours in I got a little overwhelmed. Really had to concentrate on collecting myself and staying positive over the next hour or so. Had some of THE weirdest experiences of my life while watching Frank Ocean. It’s hard for me to put into words but I felt time as a continuous loop, and then as a singular point. I think time distortion and more so “time understanding” is pretty common when taking LSD. I realized, or at least perceived, that time is more a human construct than it is a real thing. We are always at one point in the present, but the human brain needs relativity to make sense of the world around us. Anyways, had that intense peak for about an hour or so and then the come down was extremely relieving and almost euphoric.
Took another two tabs the next day but decided to stagger the ingestion. Also took it with some ecstasy aka candy flipping :) Had a really fantastic time, although it was not a very psychologically engaging trip. It was much more sensual physically; awesome visuals paired with a very stimulating sense of touch made for an immensely enjoyable experience. I have to say the synergy of the acid and the ecstasy was better than any drug combination I’ve tried before. The MDMA ensures a positive trip. I definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about trying it.
Craziest experience i had on acid was when a bunch of us decided it would be a good idea to go trekking through the woods at night ..holy balls that was an intense night, in a good way though, your imagination just takes over. I thought i was some Victorian explorer trekking through the Amazonian rainforest (this was actually in some tiny woods in northern England) The thing i remember most is coming across three strangers in the middle of the woods and they had this intense whitish yellow aura it was so bright the i could not look directly at them for longer then a split second..crazy shit ..
multiple times- probably too many.
I’ve never had any truly mind blowing epiphanies with lsd, but it has helped me to see the world through a different perspective & helped with the current changes I’ve been making in my life.
@michaelfindel, that sounds like an awesome idea for a story. Reminds me of why I took interest in substances in the first place, to push the boundaries of imagination for creative purposes, to suspend my belief in what is real, and to throw out the rules of day to day existence so that I could once again experience make-believe. Turns out I feel that you don’t really need drugs for that, but psychedelics are fun nonetheless!
There is only one problem I have though, whenever I have taken psychedelics, I always carry some anxiety in with me because I am afraid that for some reason, they won’t work. I guess the anticipated disappointment then manifests itself in a rocky trip.
Taken a low dose (1 tab) once, and as with everyone’s responses, it wasn’t too terribly mind-blowing. Though being outdoors was much more enjoyable than being indoors, and watching the city go by from afar (there is a great spot to sit on a hill here and watch the city buzz). I had planned on trying it again (more next time), but alas, I have decided not to. Maybe over the summer. Who knows! I just go where the wind takes me :)
@theskafish yeah i have the same feeling of anxiety when i do any drugs really, I think is the fact that you dont know where its going to take you, but iv come to realise is that without it maybe it wouldn’t be as good. A lot of people on here are saying that they would do acid on there own, Thats something that never appealed to me. i think its best when your with a good group of friends, it puts you at ease and creates a positive vibe.
Wow, thanks for all the responses! Grand smile on my face when i realised it wouldn be stigmatized on this website! i think i’ve found the right place…
@ijesuschrist, I feel what you mean about not getting a “mindblowing” experience out of it, but trust me, 1 tab aint even a moderate dose!
@usc1love, Tripping at Coachella…. you fortunate fecker! I’ll follow up on your advice and try candy flipping next time the chance comes around.
@jordan, Yeah, the thing is, you can’t really know if its LSD or not anymore. So many random (easier to obtain/synthesize) substances out there. Which is why I didn’t want to go dive in to it.
Apparently there is a new breed called NBO-Me compounds, which are even more potent than LSD, about same toxicity, and easier to create.
but, that’s the chemist in my talking :O
Duuuudeee… I saw THE craziest clouds while on acid. I also rode bikes, which was amazing because we went on secret bike trail epicness. Then the trees started breathing at me, and it rained so we jumped in puddles, and, after getting pretty much soaked, we found the perfect bush-tree alcove shelter which was pointless seeing as how we were already wet. After drying off, the tripped out apartment we lived in provided dry comfort in the form of hooka, christmas lights, and floral patterned couches, as well as a jumbo sized record collection full of intense and trippy music.
Havent tripped in a while though. The phone was hung up a while ago when I got the message :)
I’ve definitely enjoyed it in 1-2 hit doses and it helped expand my mind. It allows you to see the world and your life more objectively. It’s been a positive, yet scary experience that i’d like to try a few more times. I do fear it can make you lose interest in mundane life, however, and should be a carefully planned experience.
