Hallucinogens

 

 

Physical addictionfrom hallucinogens is unlikely; there is almost no evidence of long-term harm. However, very strong reactions may occur. Hallucinogens have a very large impact on: the brain; system of extremities, affecting mood and emotions; formation of the retina, enhancing sensory sensations of a person; visual centers, causing a variety of visions from flashes of lights to complex pictures; centers of memory, which are suppressed with a violation of perception and judgment. The interpretation of incoming sensory stimulants is greatly disturbed, and this generates hallucinations, illusions and unusual reactions to normal situations and events. With people under the influence of these drugs, accidents are very likely.

 

LSD(lysergic acid diethylamide) was originally obtained from the fungus "ergot", which grows on some cereals. Now it is produced by synthetic means. It is the most commonly used hallucinogenic drug, called “acid” in jargon. LSD is sometimes injected, but it is usually taken orally either as a pill or as a drop of liquid on another substance (like a cube of sugar or a small piece of blotting paper). During absorption, it is concentrated mainly in the liver, kidneys and adrenal glands. Only about 1% falls into the brain.

 

Physical Effects of LSD. LSD causes initial burning in the limbs, goose bumps, sometimes nausea and muscle pain. The person feels chills and dumbness and looks flushed. These effects fade soon, leaving dilated pupils and accelerated heart rate, high blood pressure, blood sugar levels and body temperature. Reduced muscle coordination and pain perception.

 

Psychological Effects of LSDbegin with the fact that a person becomes too emotional. It passes, but the feelings are more and more overwhelmed. Perception is enhanced and distorted: colors become brighter, sounds are louder, stationary objects appear to be moving.Synaesthesia may occur and orientation in time and space is lost. Often experienced hallucinations, varying in intensity and degree of involvement. At the same time, the normal thinking process is disrupted, and the acquired modes of thinking and behavior are interrupted. Emotional barriers collapse, the past is seen in a new light, can be released and animated, a depressed experience.

 

The dangers of LSD.In a state of panic, a person is able to cause physical harm to himself and others. There may also be a long-term mental impact: the release of repressed emotions and experiences can lead to mental illness in an unbalanced and nervous person. The use of LSD also causes paranoia, schizophrenia, and acute depression. In addition, the power of hallucinations can in itself be harmful; for example, a person’s belief that he can fly can make him take a deadly leap. "Repeated outbreaks" are spontaneous relapses of sensory disturbances afterwards. They can occur at any time within 18 months after application of the drug.They are especially dangerous when a sudden loss of orientation can lead to an accident, for example when driving a car or when crossing a street. It is also possible that LSD can damage chromosomes, but this is probably unknown.

 

These are dried leaves, flowers, stems, or pollen of some types of hemp. The drug is usually smoked in the form of cigarettes or in pipes, which causes euphoria and a visible increase in sensation. However, tetrahydrocannabinol contained in cannabis also slows down reflexes and disrupts perception, especially the sense of size and distance. Anxiety and panic attacks can occur, and prolonged use of the drug can lead to psychosis, mania, depersonalization, apathy and loss of motivation.
