Yes iv done quit a bit in the past, but must say i prefer mushrooms, because with “trips” (LSD tabs) we use to get it was a bit of a Russian roulette! you could get, in my case more often the not ones the did hardly anything to suddenly get one that would quite literally blow your mind!!.. and in a packed pub on a Saturday night its not what you really want..still, we have a good laugh about it now.

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.

Haven’t tried it, but I’ve trip sitted multiple times. It’s mind-blowing (to me) to sit there watching my friends trip balls, while I’m on the couch talking to them, perfectly sober.

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.

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 :)

Fact: If your experience wasn’t mind-blowing, you had weak LSD and/or did not take enough. You had but a taste of what LSD offers :) Lucky you, so much yet to experience!

@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

Pretty mind blowing when I took it, but retrospect makes it oh so much more golden.

Still think MDMAs my gave though. The most positively life changing substance I’ve tried.

Many many trips taken. LSD changed my life. You guys must have not been doing it right.
I havnt had any in ages, but it will forever hold a special place in my heart.
Its amazing how it changes your perception on things. When I think of LSD the first thing that comes to mind is mind-expansion. Its totally improved my outlook on life, and the way that i percieve everything. Its really interesting to take a step back, and view things from a whole other point of view. an analogy I really like: “Mushrooms help you get in touch with your roots, while LSD help you grow your branches.”

I’ve had it 3 times, the first was one tab, and I didn’t get much out of it beyond giggles, more acute color perception, and supreme relaxation. The second time I took two tabs, and this time all that really happened were occasional visuals that I seemed to be able to turn on and off at will, gravel rising out of the ground to appear as frogs or snakes, or patterns seeming to walk off of trees. The third time I took three tabs and the visuals were the most intense, with the floor of the room I was in became awash in tan sparkly waves, and the rest of the room seemed to melt. Symbols on a mystical-looking notebook constantly moved and changed color. While I have experienced some intense visuals on them, I can’t say I’ve had any mind-changes.

In the end I think I prefer shrooms, because less can go wrong in storage. Acid is sensitive to things like touch, light, and heat. Then again, if I’m going out in public like to a show or something, I prefer acid, because I feel I am much more in control than with the shrooms.

I definitely have had mind blowing experiences with LSD. I’ve taken it on four different occasions taking 2-3 drops each time. What really makes my trips as great as they are is how later in my everyday life I can use that trip to better myself. Insights are had through trips but not usually right as the trip is happening, usually they happen later. My trips have all been fantastic experiences and I’ve learned so much and been able to gain incredible new perspectives through them.

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.

I’ve had some HORRIBLE bad trips and I still say LSD is the best substance known to man. Haven’t done it in over a year but I’ve been holding onto a vial for when I feel the time is right :)

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.

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 :)

@cosmiclemonade, That sounds so intensely perfect.

Only once, fucking loved it. Slipped into a meditative state for like 4 hours. I was at an sts9 concert for the first part, then went back to my hotel with my people and chilllllleeedddd out. It was wonderful – a lifechanging experience.

I would like to go back there, I’m waiting for acid to find me in the right setting though.

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 :)
