The most standard and cheap drug tests will not test for the existence of acid (or LSD). However, it is possible to ask for an extended panel drug test, and then they can specifically look for the presence of LSD in your system. It might happen that your employer will specifically ask that you are tested for LSD (there might be a suspicion), and then to confirm this suspicion such a drug test is used. Find out more about the connection between Acid and Drug tests below.
Types of drug tests that detect Acid or LSD
The drug tests that specifically look for the existence of Acid in your system are costly. One of these tests is called the Abuscreen- basically a series of drug tests released by Roche Diagnostics. There is one specific Acid drug test that will “scan” your whole blood, the contents of the stomach and the urine to find LSD traces in your system. The other type of drug test is the EMIT (Enzyme Multiplied Immunoassay Technique), and this can also be performed to search for LSD metabolites in urine and blood serum.
More facts to know about Acid and drug tests
LSD is one of the most powerful hallucinogens out there, and if your employer has a good reason to believe you are taking hallucinogens, he can order an LSD drug test. It takes a very tiny amount to create the most powerful effects, and because of this tiny amount, it is so difficult to test for Acid with a standard urine drug test.
Another thing to keep in mind is that Acid or LSD is flushed from the human system quite rapidly. It usually takes between 24 to 48 hours for the substance to vanish completely from the system.
