LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) is a hallucinogenic substance that is chemically synthesized. Like other psychedelics, LSD primarily affects the serotonergic transmitter system in the brain and leads to an alteration of space/time and body consciousness with subjective amplification of emotions and sensory impressions, hallucinations, and altered sense of reality and experience of meaning. LSD was occasionally used as an aid in psychotherapy until it was banned in 1970. Today, research on the use of LSD in psychiatry is increasing again worldwide, and in Switzerland there are also isolated cases of LSD being used therapeutically.
