how long do the effects of lsd last

The effects of LSD can last for up to 12 hours[1][6]. The length of the effects of LSD can vary depending on several factors, including the dosage, the individual, and the quality of the drug[6]. The effects of LSD typically begin within 20 to 90 minutes of ingestion[1][6]. During an acid trip, the user may experience altered perception, thoughts, and feelings, and may see brighter colors, changing shapes, trails behind objects, unusual patterns, and “noisy” colors[1][6]. LSD can also amplify mood, causing the user to feel more relaxed, happy, or content, or unusually excited and joyful[1][6]. The effects of LSD are unpredictable, and the user has no control over how long they last[6]. The user may also experience rapid mood changes, altered sense of self, hallucinations, synesthesia, increased blood pressure, fast heart rate, increase in body temperature, sweating, numbness and weakness, and tremors[2][3]. LSD is considered a safe and nontoxic drug when taken at standard doses, and LSD toxicity or death from LSD is rare[1][2]. However, a “bad trip” or a distressing psychedelic episode is more likely to occur than physical harm[1][2].
