The top 10 reasons for an LSD session

The use of LSD as a therapeutic tool has been on the rise again in recent years after being banned for decades. Although limited research is still being done, some potential therapeutic uses of LSD have emerged and LSD users report positive effects from LSD. Below we list 10 reasons why LSD is used as a therapeutic tool

  1. Treatment of mental disorders: There is growing evidence that LSD may be therapeutic in the treatment of a variety of mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  2. Relief from anxiety and depression: LSD can have profound and long-lasting positive effects on mood and general well-being. It can help reduce anxiety and depressive symptoms even after a single session.
  3. Reinforcement of psychotherapy: LSD can be used to enhance traditional psychotherapy. It can increase introspection, insight and emotional connection, which can lead to faster and more profound therapeutic results.
  4. Spiritual and existential experiences: Many people have reported deep spiritual and existential experiences during an LSD session. This can help explore personal beliefs, values, and meanings in life.
  5. Creativity and problem solving ability: LSD can increase creativity and problem-solving skills. It can help you explore new perspectives, break through mental limitations and find innovative solutions.
  6. Personal growth and self development: LSD can be a powerful tool for personal growth and self-development. It can help people increase their self-awareness, let go of old patterns and beliefs, and gain new insights about themselves and their lives.
  7. Improved empathy and connection: LSD can increase feelings of empathy and connection with others. This can be beneficial for improving interpersonal relationships, increasing compassion and fostering a sense of oneness with others.
  8. Reduce fear of death: LSD can help people deal with the fear of death and existential anxieties. It can offer perspectives on life and death that can be comforting and liberating.
  9. Reduced addiction tendencies: There is some evidence that LSD may aid in the treatment of addictions, particularly those with problematic alcohol and tobacco use. It can help people break destructive patterns and discover new ways of living.
  10. Improved emotional well-being: LSD can have a positive impact on overall emotional well-being. It can increase feelings of joy, gratitude, and contentment, as well as a sense of wonder and appreciation for life.

LSD sessions are not for everyone

LSD is not suitable for everyone and there are certain groups of people for whom its use is strongly discouraged. Here are some examples of situations where an LSD session is not recommended:

  1. Individuals suffering from psychotic disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or major depression may be at increased risk of adverse reactions and worsening of symptoms.
  2. If someone is currently struggling with severe emotional instability, suicidal thoughts, or has been through a recent psychological crisis, LSD use is not appropriate.
  3. Some people naturally have a heightened sensitivity to psychedelics, which can lead to intense and overwhelming experiences. For these individuals, the use of LSD can be too stressful and it is better to choose another psychedelic.
  4. LSD can raise the heart and blood pressure, so people with known heart disease or hypertension should exercise caution and seek medical advice before taking LSD.
  5. Due to the lack of sufficient research on the effects of LSD on fetal development, the use of LSD during pregnancy is strongly discouraged.
  6. Individuals with serious physical conditions, such as epilepsy, liver or kidney problems, should exercise caution and consult a physician before considering LSD.
  7. There are certain medications, such as certain antidepressants, antipsychotics, and lithium, that can interact with LSD and cause unwanted effects. It is essential to consult a physician if taking any medication before considering LSD.
