Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), Urine

LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) is a powerful hallucinogenic drug that is typically not included in standard urine drug tests. Most routine urine drug screens, such as those used for employment or routine medical examinations, do not test for LSD. These tests primarily focus on detecting common drugs like marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, opioids, and benzodiazepines.

Specialized tests for LSD and other hallucinogens are available and can be conducted if there is a specific reason to screen for these substances.

The detection of LSD in urine is typically limited to a relatively short window of time following use, usually a few days. The exact duration of detectability can vary depending on factors like the dose, individual metabolism, and the sensitivity of the test.

LSD is a hallucinogen, which means it can profoundly alter a person's perception of reality, thoughts, and feelings. It can induce vivid and intense hallucinations and sensory distortions. LSD was first synthesized in 1938 by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann. Its psychedelic properties were discovered in 1943 when Hofmann accidentally ingested a small amount of the compound.

LSD primarily affects the serotonin system in the brain. It is believed to work by binding to serotonin receptors and altering the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in mood regulation. The effects of LSD can vary widely from person to person and can depend on factors such as the dose, set (one's mental state), setting (environment), and individual sensitivity. Common effects include altered perceptions, vivid visuals, and changes in thought patterns.
