Sensory effects include perceptual distortions that vary with dose, setting, and mood.
Psychic effects include disorders of thought associated with time and space. Time may appear to stand still and forms and colors seem to change and take on new significance.
It needs to be stressed that the effects of hallucinogens are unpredictable each time they are used. Weeks or even months after some hallucinogens have been taken and all traces of the drug have left a user's system, the user may experience flashbacks--fragmentary recurrences of certain aspects of the drug experience in the absence of actually taking the drug. Although these flashbacks have been the focus of many studies their occurrences remain unpredictable.
