    Question
    How long would it take a hit of liquid LSD to be fully absorbed into the skin of the hand? My friend dropped two hits into his hand, rubbed his hadns together until it was no longer wet and then lightly washed his hands about ten minutes later. He did this 1.5 hrs ago and is not tripping. Is it likely he washed it off or is it just taking awhile?

    Unless you used DMSO, chances are LSD would not work this way.

    My friend said that he is starting to feel something and that the guy he got it from says it creeps really slowly. He'll see if it works.

    hmm im not sure if skin pores lead to the bloodstream. but i have heard of some friends that started to midly trip after having sweaty hands and handling acid. not that it was full blown or anything, just subtle effects.

    i've taken acid like this and it worked
    i just let it evaporate on the back of my hand. water and especially tap water breaks down acid quickly so he may have washed some off
    it seems more reliable to just drop it directly under the tounge.. no worry about it going anywhere

    Yeah, unfortunately nothing more than a subtle sense of tripping occurred. Mental note, EAT the acid, don't just spill it on your hand.

    Isn't there some story that does the rounds (I suspect it might be an urban legend) about some guy who tries to smuggle a shitload of acid tabs somewhere by sticking them to his chest under his clothes, only it rains outside and all the acid absorbs into his skin and he goes insane?
    I'm pretty sure it's a crock of shit, (water tending to wreck LSD) but has anyone else heard that story or a variant?

    never heard about it !
    but the worlds first experience on lsd was by skin contact.
    Hoffman, who created lsd, was working at his lab and aciddentally got in contact with lsd by his hand and started to trip real hard!
    so it should work but I think you can't wash your hands after...
    and remember hendrix used lsd under his bandana..

    LSD most certainly can get into your blood stream across your skin - it would just need to be in sufficient quantity.
    And as far as the guy running with the acid in his pockets through sprinklers theme... The movie that made it big was "SLC Punk" - pretty cool flick actually.
    Thinking back on Hofmann's (Mankind's) first trip...AKA "Bicycle Day", I am still absolutely awestruck and deeply thankful that this scientist who inadvertantly dosed himself EVER decided that what had happened to him was a good thing... and that LSD-25 wasn't just some neurotoxic compound that had caused hovoc in his brain. I can't decide whether his second experience was bravery or just flat out idiocy.
    As wonderful as the experience might have been for Dr. Hofmann(and it is blessing to all that enjoy this compound that he didn't have a bad trip!) I don't know if I would have ever touched it again. Maybe in my old age.

    please provide a reputable source for this. i've done tons of reading on hendrix and have never seen this verified in even pulp trash books, nor has it been mentioned in any interviews i've seen with people who knew him/played with him.
    actually it seems like the typical person who says this is a stupid teenager.

    As Murple said, the best (and only way that I can think) way to absorb LSD through the skin would be to use a solvent that is readily absorbable through the skin, such as DMSO. Of course, DMSO has it's own set of problems (it tends to absorbs some of the things on your skin, which can lead to other problems), but it should be done.

    Semantics, my dear MGS...Hofmann's first experience with LSD was a mistake. The first time he "intentionally tripped" on LSD was "Bicycle Day".
    Damn.. you steppin' to me, beatch??!??!?

    Most likely the more lipophilic base form of LSD could be absorbed through skin, but not the water-soluble salt form. For example amphetamine base can also be absorbed through skin (see Hartvig P. Skin absorption of Dexamphetamine base--a case report. Eur J Clin Pharmacol. 1998 54(9-10):805-7).

    hmm... it's wprked for me before... I had one square of paper on my hand which was meant for a freind... it took me about 20mins to find my freind and by the time i found him my arm had a slight tingle... my freind then ate said piece of paper...
    I ended up tripping mildly, my freind not at all... ha haha...
    I've heard through another freind that his brother once put a tab of acid on his eye lid and tripped extremely hard, although i do not know the validity of this situation...

    ^No it didn't"
    I beleive (although i'm not 100% sure that ergots contain lysergic amides or somethign along those lines, which are i think used in the manufacture of lsd, they aen't however lsd themselves.

    Ok, I've been criticized before for being to harsh in my attempts to correct people who post misinformation.....so I'm biting my tongue on this one (real hard).
    Suffice it to say, the above comment is absolutely false. LSD does not occur naturally in ergot (or in anything for that matter). Hedtwin is correct, ergot does contain the starting material necessary to manufacture LSD but it does not contain LSD itself.

    LSD does not occur in nature. Hoffmann has said it was possible, but it has never been discovered. Whoever said it does occur is misinformed.

    I have heard the myth about a guy trying to smuggle a sheet of acid into a rave by keeping it under his shirt and it got plastered to his chest because he was sweating so much and he tripped out of his gourd for a looooong time(i think hospitalization or incarceration was part of the story too). Of course, I heard this from a guy in a line to get into a rave heheh

    with LSD there is a saturation point. once you've gotten to the end, there is no where else to go. taking 10 sheets of LSD wouldn't make a difference, well, perhaps in length.
