Signs of LSD use
When was LSD first created and what does it do?
Albert Hofmann, a chemist working for Sandoz Pharmaceutical, synthesized LSD for the first time in 1938 in Basel, Switzerland. He was looking for a blood stimulant. At the time, its hallucinogenic effects were unknown until 1943, when Hofmann accidentally consumed LSD.
Since then, LSD has become a drug used by youth around the world on the social scene, in dance clubs and raves. It can produce a massively-distorted sense of reality and has harmful effects both physically and mentally. An artificial sense of euphoria or certainty can be experienced by the user.
Some physical signs of LSD use include:
- Dilated (widened) pupils
- Salivation or dry mouth
- Tingling fingers or toes
- Negative effects, including emotional distress, anxiety, depression, disorientation or paranoia, hallucinations
- Dizziness, nausea, rapid heart rate and convulsions
- Sweating or chills
- Blurred vision
- Erratic behaviour
- Increased body temperature
- Tremors and muscle cramping
