What Does It Feel Like To Be On Acid?

Everything you see on LSD actually exists, you just see it differently than you normally would.

LSD makes you much more attentive to detail (this applies to all your senses).

Acid feels like “seeing the world for the first time,” with stimulated and profound seeming thoughts, and sort of a dreamlike feeling.

What does a bad acid trip feel like?

In contrast, a bad trip can bring overwhelming feelings of fear—the world can seem harsh, cold, and ugly, life can seem painful, people can seem superficial and cruel. The emotions that accompany an acid trip, whether good or bad, can seem overwhelming, difficult to control, and as if they will never go away.

What happens when you take acid?

LSD users often experience loss of appetite, sleeplessness, dry mouth and tremors. Visual changes are among the more common effects—the user can become fixated on the intensity of certain colors. Extreme changes in mood, anywhere from a spaced-out “bliss” to intense terror, are also experienced.

Can acid kill you?

It’s very unlikely to die from an actual overdose of LSD but there could be other damage or dangers from this powerful and unpredictable substance. You may not die but you could overdose, experiencing such things as panic attacks, severe depression, seizures and erratic behavior.

What should you not do on acid?

This list also only applies to those embarking on a full-blown trip (70ug+), not those taking microdoses (1–15ug).

  • Get angry. Out of the vast spectrum of emotions capable of being experienced, I believe anger to be the hardest to control when in a psychedelic headspace.
  • Go to a rave.
  • Drive.
  • Take more acid.
  • Smoke weed.
