LSD (ACID, TABS, TRIPS, DOTS, MICRO DOT, LUCY)
What is LSD? LSD stands for its chemical name, lysergic acid diethylamide, and is commonly called ‘acid’. It’s a powerful hallucinogenic drug – this means that users are likely to experience a distorted view of objects and reality, including seeing and sometimes hearing things that aren’t there (these are hallucinations). The experience of taking LSD is known as a ‘trip’.
If you know what drugs the person being tested is using then these single tests are ideal. If you do not know what drugs the person being tested has taken then you should buy one of our multi-panel tests which will be both cheaper and will enable you to check which drugs are being taken.
What is required to carry out this test?
All the drug tests are simple to use and only involve taking a sample of urine. Results are accurate and rapid (in 5 minutes).
When should I do the test?
This test can be carried out at any time. To perform the test:
To read the results of your test you will need to do the following.
When looking at the test strip you will see a pink/red coloured line just below the test handle. This is the Control Line (C). The next line that may or may not appear below the control is called the Test Line (T).
The control line (C), has to show as this confirms that the test strip has worked properly.
If no control line appears the test strip hasn’t worked properly and you may need to do a further test.
A second pink/red coloured line below the control line, no matter how faint, should now appear. This is a negative result. If no further line appears below the control line then the individual has tested positive for that drug of abuse.
What should I do with the results?
If you obtain a negative result then the person tested has none of the tested drug of abuse in their body at this time. You may want to re-test again in a month’s time. If you obtain a positive result then a drug of abuse has been detected in the urine. You may want to do another test later, or at a further date to confirm the result.
