    i cried of pure happiness, for the first time ever, when i tried lsd the first time. As long as you’re in a good mindset it’s perfectly safe. Trip safe :)

    When it comes to drugs I have one rule, if the substance occurs naturally, go for it, just educate yourself first.

    i will say this: if you plan to “trip”, make sure to have plenty of snacks, trusted people/environment to make you non-paranoid, and a sober friend to drive you around at some point (this makes for a great experience)

      Pony Lifestyle you’ll get a little bit of munchies so just having food there and not having to worry about going out to get stuff will help, just kind of a good way to have it just in case

    Haha, I remember first taking LSD with my friends back in 2016, we didn’t know anything about it at the time. Our plug just told us that he had acid and we decided to try it, but being the ignorant people we were, we were taking 250ug tabs, and we TOOK the WHOLE thing. Haha we were tripping so much balls, every second felt like an eternity, we took it a 7pm and ended staying up until 6 am the next morning. Another thing is we were so overwhelmed by it, that we all were on the verge of bad trips and kept pulling each other back into the light. The next morning we were so tired and exhausted, it felt like we went through a mental warfare thing that entire night, still a very good time tho.

    I’m 19 and have dropped acid 6ish times and I feel like there might be negative effects. I’ve heard from my friends they get permanent acid tears in their vision or some of my friends that does hella acid is a lil brain dead tbh. My point is, I’m wondering if doing acid too frequently will decrease your cognitive thinking. I ask ppl that have dropped it and their answer is always no, but that’s with everyone that does drugs tbh. I want a real and truthful answer.

    The hallucinations lsd causes can put people into extremely dangerous situations. It caused a young girl to jump to her death on a rocky beach bc it looked like a silky scarf. Another man had to be kept from jumping off an apartment window bc he wanted to use his powers to fly. So many people have committed suicide or crimes this way.

    you know why on LSD your brain is allowed to become smarter? b/c it receives more blood flow than usual. More blood flow = more oxygen supply. So the brain capacity increases with oxygen concentration. Hence humanity including all other life were all smarter in the ancient past when the atmosphere had higher oxygen content.

    Please guys don’t mix LSD with WEED... you will fall into a very bad loop hole of a trip, it’s terrifying also make sure you have a baby sitter with you at all times the first time you take LSD.
