100 ug oral ALD-52 (blotter / tab)


[Erowid Note: The term "acid" has been used as a common name for d-LSD since the 1960s. Although confusion associated with newer psychoactive substances has lead some people to use the term "acid" to refer to anything LSD-like or anything psychedelic on blotter or sold in drops, we believe this represents an error and not a useful evolution in language.]

Dropped the tab at 4:00 PM. Nervous, heart beat considerably faster than normal. Blood pressure rise. I'm going to meditate.

T+16min: Could be placebo, but I swear I'm already experiencing perceptual anomalies. Things seem more textured and exaggerated; 'things' stand out more- specifically the notepad programs background I'm writing this on.

T+34min: Feeling pretty good, awareness is different, malleable. Listening to chill-step and it's helping to facilitate the experience. I can feel the classic acid body high, especially when I swallow. It's almost like I can feel my organs, there's a sensitivity to touch and inner body sensations similar to mushrooms. I'm feeling content, yet still slightly nervous. Mild visual differences. I am feeling light, sensitive, open and just peaceful.

5:14 PM: Feeling the effects strongly. I'm still coming up. Wow. Visuals are prominent. I look at everything and everything breathes back, the walls are bleeding and interchanging minute intricacies and I detect this minor form of synesthesia. My thoughts reverberate to a slow, rolling tempo.
My thoughts reverberate to a slow, rolling tempo.
This was alarming and the only thing that shook me over a course of twenty minutes.

When I close my eyes there's these dull flashes of far away light that pass me by and follow the same pattern. Beautiful colors everywhere. I am melting and reforming at a constant rate. This is incredible.

6:00 PM: I flow around my apartment peaking, having somewhat of a difficult time adjusting. I realize and affirm that this state is not permanent, and my main issue was finding something to do. Over the course of the trip, I showered, listened to Terence McKenna, Alan Watts, and Neil Degrasse Tyson. I went for a walk around 3 1/2 hours in, I found that I felt exposed and vulnerable in this state.

I adapted to the effects and was pretty comfortable for the rest of the trip, around the four hour mark. Things died down visually and mentally around 10 o' clock; minor visuals, semi-'normal' thoughts. I felt better carrying myself as a human being at this point.

To conclude this acid is amazing. I was flowing, melting, bleeding, and breathing to a cascade of jumbled and confused thoughts initially, but then they settled into a more consistent rhythm that eased me. This could be used recreationally (would be difficult), or for personal development. This trip was very self empowering and raw, raw as in it made me focus on primal human interests like sex, food, and social interaction.
