LSD Finally, what is it?

Crystals produced illegally in crystal in the United States laboratories. Crystals are liquified for distribution. It is odourless, colourless, and has a slightly bitter taste.
Properties of LSD
LSD is a potent hallucinogen with mild sympathomimetic effects and it can cause a total change in the perception of reality in its users, as it reinforces the moment emotion or the invoked ones, as well as causing illusions, visual and aural hallucinations, and great sensorial sensitiveness. The effects last from 8 to 12 h and appear about 30–40 min after consumption. Colors become brighter, and synesthesia, mystical experiences, and flashbacks also occur—the last are the main danger, as the user relives the experience he or she had with the drug without consuming it again. This can happen weeks after the ingestion of the drug and the symptoms are paranoia, changes in perception of time and space, confusion, disorganized thoughts, panic, anxiety, depression, and difficulty in concentration.
Known as “acid” and by many other names. LSD is sold as “microdots”, capsules or gelatin squares on the streets. It is sometimes added to absorbent paper. Occasionally sold in liquid form. But no matter what form it comes in, LSD leads the user to the same place—a serious disconnection from reality.
Finally, LSD users call experience a “trip,” typically lasting twelve hours or so.
