Casey Hardison's Survey
by Murple, Feb 6, 2001
As mentioned previously, Casey Hardison, a graduate student at the University of Idaho, conducted an informal survey of 2C-T-7 users at the Entheobotany conference in Palenque, Mexico in February 2000. Noticing that quite a few people were conducting bioassays of the material, Hardison seized the opportunity to perform some informal impromptu research. He designed a survey which was handed out to conference attendees, and received 48 responses. The results of this survey were published in the Summer 2000 issue of the MAPS Bulletin under the title "An Amateur Qualitative Study of 48 2C-T-7 Subjective Bioassays."
Respondents were of various cultural and ethnic backgrounds, ranging from 24 to 73 years old. 29 respondents were male, 13 female, and the remaining 4 did not specify their sex. 33 of the respondents indicated no prior experience with 2C-T-7 prior to the conference, and 12 indicated they had previously used it from between 1 and 15 times.
The respondents used dosages in the range of 25 to 45 mg, which worked out to 0.3 to 0.6 mg/kg. The average time until effects were felt was 1.5 hours, with the range of variation being 15 minutes to 4 hours. Time until peak effects ranged from 1 to 6 hours, with the average being 3 hours. Duration of peak effects ranged from 1 to 5 hours, with 3 hours being average. Entire duration ranged from 8 to 18 hours with a median of 12 hours (not all respondents answered this question on the survey). Other drugs which were taken in conjunction with the 2C-T-7 were marijuana, dihydrocodeine, Valium, alcohol, and cocaine.
As far as side effects, nausea and upset stomach were the most commonly reported, with 7 respondents reporting general nausea or stomach discomfort and 3 reporting extreme nausea. Headaches were reported by 4 individuals, and muscle tension by 3. Abdominal cramps, tachycardia and renal pain each received one mention.
35 of the respondents indicated a willingness to repeat the experience, versus 7 who would not take 2C-T-7 again. 4 individuals did not respond to this question.
