Rubish information - We don't need more research on LSD, it's not dangerous and yes, it has therapeutic effects on the brain, and yes it can be used for recreational use and yes it can be used for fun as well.
So it’s basically like weed and being that it can help out with getting out or numbing depression and other mental blocks that people have but it is illegal because you can have a bad trip im guessing but is less painful overtime than alcohol and half of the things that you can be prescribed by a doctor makes sense I guess seeing on how the world is
Scientifically, the trips often tap into your emotional and memory centres so the emotional content is really powerful. For some it's positive, for other's it's negative. It's so variable. I've just done a video that explains this on my channel Mental Health with Dr Elliott.
Me. Im the source, I've done it and yeah it makes you Trip out, everything is truly amazing on the drug, shit looks cool, etc. But, for me I had one of the most tramatic experiences with it. It felt as if i had lost my mind completely, and i had truly believed i was dead. I actually have ptsd from experiencing that bad trip. So yeah its a lot to explain but when i say its one of the most dangerous and terrifying drugs, i mean it. Doing it has literally fucked me up mentally. It happened on july 1st and its been what, 3 months and a couple of weeks and i still think about it every single day. And it gets me really upset and anxious
I don't think that necessarily means legalising it but I agree the restrictions on recreational use prevent research on therapeutic uses. Some in the UK are pushing for it to become a schedule 2 drug where recreational use is still illegal but dispensing is permitted for research purposes.
If a piece of art becomes significant for a large number of people due to a misinterpretation of the creator's intent then isn't it still valid because art takes place in the mind of the observer?
The answer is yes but I'll let you come to that conclusion on your own.
The dose you take does matter however not quite as much as your set and setting. Now that doesnt mean you should take 20 tabs of acid for your first time but as long as you're comfortable with your dose (i recommend 1 tab at most 2) and you are comfortable where you are it should be a pleasant experience. Also you should definitely have a trip sitter, this is a friend who will be sober and accompany you through your journey. I've found im usually more comfortable being alone and if things get hairy i can call a friend and they can come over or we talk on the phone. But a trip sitter is usually a good idea for most people.
It's not necessarily preventable but avoidable by knowing what your getting into. Whenever you hear someone talking about psychedelics you often will hear the two words set and setting. Your set is your mindset, like how your feeling and whatnot. Your setting would be where you are like your bedroom a friends house or camping in a forest. For your first time you should definitely be somewhere your comfortable with such as your room and you should always be in a good mindset.
Alcohol: One of the worst drugs known to man (Legal).
Psychedelics: Most are found naturally in nature and have profound impacts on the brain, personality and perception. And is even know to make people smart and more open minded (Illegal).
What does this say about our society?
bruh yall are soooooooo stupid her neck is average, her hair being straight down and low cut top just makes the illusion that its super long but if you imagine a horizontal line where her shoulders are, you can see what is really her neck and just her chest
I used to take so much of this i would completely lose myself complete ego death. I have tried to explain this to people before it's like standing at the edge of a cliff and below is the universe i'm sure some of you can relate theres a point you get to with acid where you're teetering on that cliff edge and that shit is very scary for a lot of people. You feel like you're about to completely lose yourself and while yes it can be scary the real fun is stepping off that cliff falling right into the universe. That teetering point is scary but as soon as you go over the edge you're not scared anymore because you lose yourself to the point "fear" just doesn't exist to you hell you can't talk you have no concept of anything it's like you become one with everything. LMAO sorry this shit is very hard to explain to people
If you are a true believer in Christ, please do not give your time to these videos. Do not do drugs unless it's specifically to HEAL. Stay sober-minded brothers and sisters. Do not let this world take you!
I agree that lsd should be legal and all. I have done it many times but acid certainly has been linked to mental illness. Its rears but it has. Thats why she keeps saying "one study". Because she is looking for sources that fallow her perceptions on it and wants more people to think like her. Pretty biased but still a bit of decent info.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
