LSD: Ingestion methods
Last modified: Sunday, 31. May 2009 - 4:54 pm
LSD is almost always taken by mouth. The white, odorless, slightly bitter-tasting crystalline powder is usually dissolved into a liquid form and soaked into blotter paper. The paper is then cut into quarter-inch-square-sized individual doses, called tabs, trips, hits, or doses. The paper is usually decorated with specific designs, such as dolphins, strawberries, or mushrooms, which help identify the manufacturer. Such designs also help to
conceal how old the LSD is, as the drug tends to turn yellowish with age.
Less commonly, white LSD powder is squeezed into tiny pills (called microdots) or placed in capsules. It can also be formed into clear gelatin squares called window panes. In the 1990s, LSD has turned up at raves in blue-colored gel wraps that look like bubble-wrap packing material and in small breath freshener-type spray bottles. LSD has also been found on or in postage stamps, cookies, drinks, sugar cubes, and commercially produced candies.
More than 200 types of LSD tablets and more than 350 LSD blotting paper designs have been found. A dose of LSD typically costs about $2 to $5 (U.S.).
In rare cases, people soak tobacco leaves in LSD and smoke it, but this is generally considered to produce a poor-quality high. Even more rarely, some people inject the drug directly into their muscles to produce a more intense experience.
