trip

trip
I. n
1a.
an experience of a 'psychedelic' drug such as LSD. A typical LSD trip would last around 6-8 hours, during which time the user would undergo profound sensory and psychological changes. The image evoked is that of an 'inward journey'.
► 'Leary himself has been on over 300 trips although he has abstained for nearly a year.' (Sunday Times colour supplement, 1 January 1967)
1b.
a single dose, tablet or capsule of LSD
2.
a state of mind, state of affairs or per-sonal experience. The original 1960s counterculture sense of an LSD experi-ence was soon broadened to encompass these meanings. The word was used in a variety of sub-senses, in expressions such as 'a guilt trip' (a bout of remorse), 'lay a trip on someone' (subject someone to one's own preoccupation, obsession or problem), 'a heavy trip' (a devastating or oppressive experience) or 'on one's own trip' (preoccupied with oneself or intro-verted).
II. trip (out)
vb
to experience the effects of LSD or a similar hallucinogenic drug. The term was coined in California in the early 1960s to describe the period (often around 8 hours) under the influence of the drug wherein one is 'transported on an inner voyage'.
