How Much Does LSD (Acid) Cost?

Medically Reviewed by Johnelle Smith, M.D. on August 1, 2023

LSD, more commonly referred to as acid, is a very strong, illegal hallucinogen that is sold on the street. A single dose is relatively cheap and the effects are long-lasting.

Average Cost Of LSD (Acid) On The Street

Acid could be considered one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, illicit drug available today when the length of the trip is considered along with the price.

A single dose or “hit” of acid will cost around $5-$20, with the effects lasting up to 24 hours.

Acid is not considered an addictive drug, most likely because the effects are so long-lasting and intense. It is, however, an illicit drug that has a high potential for abuse, so the costs of repeated usage can definitely add up.

The cost of illicit street drugs will vary based on factors such as ease of acquisition, local laws, purity of the drug, where it was produced, and more.
