LSD is very powerful hallucinogenic drug. Though it isn’t a very addictive drug, it can stay in the system for 6 to 12 hours.

LSD is mostly taken to to produce hallucinations. When you use the drug, it may create a positive , even a spiritual experience. However, if you have a “ bad trip’’,  you can experience terror and even a psychotic episode.

Lysergic acid diethylamide was first created in a laboratory in the 1930’s. However, it didn’t become really popular until the 1960’s. LSD may be taken orally in a pill, injected, or placed on the skin. LSD can take effect in your body about 20 minutes after use. LSD peaks after two hours in the system and leaves the body after about 8 hours in the system.  LSD can be detected in the urine 3 to 5 days after use in a drug test.

How long LSD stays in your body depends on a number of factors. If you’re a young LSD user, the drug will leave the system sooner than if you’re an older user. If you’re taller and weigh more, you can handle the drug better than if you’re small and light. If you’re more heavyset, you can absorb LSD better than if you’re a small person. If you’re taking LSD on an empty stomach, you’re more likely to absorb the drug better than if you eat food. If you eat before you take LSD, you won’t absorb the drug as well.

LSD is not always an addictive drug because the tolerance to the drug dissipates quickly.  Tolerance to the drug can happen after 4 or 5 doses of the drug. While the recreational drug isn’t addictive,  it can have negative long-lasting consequences.  Psychotic episodes can happen if you’ve taken a bad dose of the drug and if you’ve taken other drugs along with LSD..

If you want to counteract the effects of LSD, there are a few ways. Eating a full meal and drinking a lot of water can help flush the drug out of your body. Exercising can also speed up your metabolism and get LSD out of your system sooner.

While LSD addiction is rare, it is possible. Check into a rehabilitation facility  and talk to a doctor if you feel you are becoming dependent on the drug. Lower your dosages gradually and eventually LSD can be out of your system completely.
