Diethylamide d-lysergic acid, more commonly known as a psychoactive drug LSD, has a positive effect on the number of mental qualities of the person in the medium term, according to The Telegraph.
A study conducted by scientists at Imperial College London has shown that a single use of LSD leads to improved mood and increase the degree of openness to new experience, even two weeks after the experience of the use of psychedelic drugs.
The experiment included 20 volunteers. The volunteers were subjected to a series of psychological tests, that have proven significant positive changes among participants who received LSD, and did not show any special improvements in the control group receiving placebo.
Scientists also point out that the use of psychoactive substances has not led to increased levels of delusional thinking in those who participated in the study.
According to experimental findings, published in the journal Psychological Medicine, LSD causes an increase in cognitive ability that has a positive impact on the psychological quality of life in the medium and, presumably, the long-term perspective.
