The term bodyload (also known as body load) is an informal term used in the psychonaut community to describe a set of various uncomfortable physical symptoms that accompany the cognitive, sensory, and perceptual changes that occur while under the influence of a hallucinogenic substance, particularly serotonergic psychedelics. The bodyload of a substance is typically associated with or most pronounced during the "come up" phase of a hallucinogenic experience as the user becomes acclimated to a sudden shift in their psychophysical state and often ends when the user voluntarily or involuntarily vomits (this is sometimes referred to as a "purge"). However, it is capable of persisting past this point and developing into a different set of symptoms depending on the substance.
