Can Individuals Suffer from an LSD Addiction?

Although individuals can develop a tolerance for LSD, abusers do not suffer from a “physical” LSD addiction. Lysergic acid diethylamide, however, is often taken in increasing dosages in an attempt to experience desirable hallucinogenic effects. Dangerous physical reactions to LSD include elevated blood sugar levels, fever, hypothermia, and increased heart rate. While an LSD overdose is unlikely, many accidental fatalities have been associated with this potent drug.

Are people curious about an LSD addiction? What kinds of information are individuals searching for on the topic of LSD? Thanks to an exciting new form of addictions research, these questions, along with countless others, can be answered. Quantified and graphed results from online search data offer some fascinating insights into many controversial substance abuse issues.

“Blotter”, “Bartman”, “Gelatin Chips”, “Acid” – LSD Street Names Make the List

In Graph 3, the phrases “names for LSD” and “street names for LSD” appear in the listing of the top 100 two and three word combinations for LSD searches, but are only 67th and 69th respectively (total of 7,311 searches over a one-year period). So, what are popular LSD queries?

The total of the first three phrases alone, “make LSD”, “how to make LSD”, and “making LSD”, amounts to a staggering 378,714 searches. Numerous phrases that refer to a recipe for LSD throughout Graph 1 further demonstrate the popularity of this topic.

Other interesting searches of note are “girl on LSD” (45,015), which references a controversial 1994 song from Tom Petty, and “cat on LSD” (40,667), a popular 1957 video on YouTube featuring a government experiment of a cat given LSD. This fascination with LSD themes may have something to do with its colorful beginnings.

LSD Addicts? LSD Research Leads to Emergence of Counter-Culture Movement

While not considered LSD addicts, two famous LSD researchers, Dr. Timothy Leary and Dr. Richard Apart came to believe so much in the powerful spiritual and psychological effects of LSD use that they helped begin the 1960’s counter-culture hippie movement. “Dr. Leary” is also a popular LSD search, with the words, “Leary” and “Timothy” combining for 13,315 searches (see Graph 2).
