LSZ - INFORMATION AND HARM REDUCTION
What is LSZ?
LSZ, also known as Lysergic Acid 2,4-Dimethylazetidine, is a psychoactive substance from the lysergamide group, which is a structural analog of LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide). It is a chemical compound that can have psychedelic effects on the user, influencing perception, thinking, and mood. LSZ is a relatively understudied compound and is often sold as a recreational drug, although its safety and effects are not fully understood.
Description and History of LSZ
LSZ was first synthesized in a laboratory in the 1960s as part of research into the structure and effects of lysergamides. Unlike LSD, there is much less information and scientific research available about LSZ. Due to the lack of clinical studies and safety data, using LSZ may come with some risks.

How Does LSZ Work?The mechanism of action of LSZ is similar to LSD. It primarily works by affecting serotonin receptors in the brain, leading to changes in the processing of sensory and emotional information. This can result in psychedelic experiences, such as altered perception of time, shapes, and colors, as well as a deeper sense of introspection.
LSZ: Effects1. Hallucinations: LSZ is known for its ability to induce intense hallucinations, both visual and auditory.
LSZ: Duration of Effects
- Onset of Effects: LSZ effects typically start around 30-60 minutes after ingestion.
- Peak Effects: The peak of LSZ’s effects usually occurs approximately 4-6 hours after ingestion.
- Duration of Effects: The total duration of LSZ effects typically ranges from 10 to 14 hours.
- Fading of Effects: LSZ effects may gradually fade, and the feeling of “returning to reality” can last up to 24 hours.
- Low Dose (25-75 µg): May lead to subtle changes in mood and perception.
- Moderate Dose (75-150 µg): This is the range where more pronounced visual effects and perceptual changes may occur.
- High Dose (150+ µg): High doses can induce intense hallucinations and profound alterations of consciousness but come with the risk of anxiety and disorientation.

- Always test LSZ for purity using a reliable drug testing kit like PRO Test. Learn how to test LSZ by checking out the article https://protestkit.eu/how-to-test-LSD/.
Mixing: LSZIt’s best not to mix any psychoactive substances, but if you find yourself in a situation where you have combined LSZ with other substances, it’s essential to be aware of potential risks. Here is a list of the main risks associated with mixing LSZ with popular psychoactive substances:
- LSZ and Alcohol: It can lead to disorientation and an increased risk of alcohol abuse.
- LSZ and Benzodiazepines: The combination can reduce the intensity of LSZ effects but may also lead to significantly greater risk of uncontrolled behavior.
- LSZ and DMT: It may lead to intensified psychedelic experiences and disorientation.
- LSZ and GBL: Increased risk of disorientation and potential health issues.
- LSZ and GHB: The combination can lead to an increased risk of disorientation and potential health problems.
- LSZ and Psilocybin Mushrooms: It can amplify psychedelic effects and disorientation.
- LSZ and Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI): It can reduce the intensity of LSZ effects and lead to less predictable outcomes.
- LSZ and Ketamine: The combination can lead to intensified dissociative experiences and disorientation.
- LSZ and Caffeine: It may enhance stimulating effects and potentially increase alertness.
- LSZ and Cocaine: Increased risk to the cardiovascular system and potential danger.
- LSZ and MDMA: It can lead to intensified psychedelic effects.
- LSZ and MAO inhibitors (MAOi): It can reduce the intensity of LSZ effects and lead to less predictable outcomes.
- LSZ and Methamphetamine: The combination can overly stimulate the cardiovascular system.
- LSZ and NBOMe: It may intensify effects and increase the risk of adverse reactions.
- LSZ and Opioids: Increased risk of respiratory depression and overdose.
- LSZ and Nitrous Oxide: It may intensify dissociative effects and disorientation.
- LSZ and THC: It can intensify psychedelic experiences and increase the risk of anxiety and paranoia.
- LSZ and Tramadol: Potential risk of serotonin syndrome and other adverse effects.
