This report comes from an experience I had last night while undergoing a trial of 25D-nBOME in combination with Cannabis. When I decided to acquire 25D I did so for a few reasons. First it was new to me and I am quite open to new psychedelic experiences. Second, one gram only cost $120. So if I stick to around 1mg (which I don't.) one hit would only cost something like 0.012 cents. Can't beat that deal. This report was written mostly on a whim and all notes written during the experience have remained unedited. There was more time spent spacing out and staring at the monitor than actually writing this report or trying to get anything done. I would also like to say that even though I couldn't find any information on plugging 25D, I find it to be the preferred ROA. Same with MXE.

Begin notes written while under trial.

There are not very many experience reports on 25D-nBOME, so I will share my experience with the compound.

I ordered one gram of 25D a while back, it's apperance is a crystalline white powder. The first time I tried 25D I wrote it off. Experience with other nBOME's has been at times more acceptable. However, after a re-visit to 25D I think I have found good purpose for it.

[Erowid Note: Two samples of powder (even of the same chemical) with equivalent volumes won't necessarily weigh the same. For this reason, eyeballing is an inaccurate and potentially dangerous method of measuring, particularly for substances that are active in very small amounts. See this article on The Importance of Measured Doses.]

I do not have a scale, which is admittedly a bad thing. Therefore all doses are approximate.

Earlier tonight, I dosed an eyeballed amount of 25D-nBOME. I'd say maybe it was 2-3mgs. Probably closer to 2mgs, but who knows? That was about two hours ago.

(+0:00) ~2mgs 25D-nBOME plugged.

~(+0:10) Began to prepare cannabis for a bowl. Some rather large difficulties occur. eg. Spacing out and staring at patterns.

~(+0:20-30) Finished bowl. Sitting in silence in my apartment as I finish smoking alone. Lots of fun thoughts colors much brighter and patterns appear if focused upon. Especially on the background of this text editor.

(+1:00) Watching videos on the internet. Very fun, want very much to play Hitman: Absolution (it was the topic of the video)

~(+1:10) Begin playing Fallout 3 because I don't have Hitman: Absolution. Very silly at this point, laughing lots and enjoying gameplay. Visuals still strong.

(+2:00) It seems like I've come down off the peak already. Begin to prepare a new bowl.

~(+2:30) Finish smoking bowl. Decide to turn off the lights and go to the other room to lay down.

~(+2:45) Decide that I am too awake to try to sleep.

~(+3:00) Begin writing report. Visuals still noticeable. Perhaps I have dropped off the peak, but I would say I'm still on a good ++.

(+3:05) I am tired but still too awake for sleep. Still watching fractyls on the whitespace of my monitor. This is overall much less intense than say 25I, but still enjoyable. I would compare it more with 2c-X. More flowing, less of an explosion of color and pattern like most 25X compounds. Still lots of movement/patterns.

(+3:10) Attempt to read an ncurses tutorial. It seems more difficult to understand.

(+3:30) I am very tired at this point 4:20 AM. I decided to start this experience very late. But I still think I have a few hours left here. Begin to prepare a third bowl. I don't normally smoke Cannabis, but since I have a little it's the best way to be rid of it. As an aside, I previously have mentioned the joys of taking cannabinoids orally instead of smoking. Also since then I have quit using cannabinoids. Except the occasional smoke with a friend. So adding Cannabis is a strange choice for me. But it does help ease the body load.

(+3:40) I am going to lay down for a while. Although still very awake at this point. Visuals have not all left either. Still noticable patterns and movement.

(+4:00) 20 minutes seemed like a lot longer. Side effects pretty noticable at this point. Heart rate feels as though probably increased. Good body buzz when laying down though. The action of vasoconstriction was felt. Tingling extremities and very red feet. Standing for too long brings sharp pains to the feet. Also give up on sleep realizing how much I am still pretty much in the full swing of things. Still ++. Decide to eat soup. A few side notes: forgot to mention that in previous trials, combination with MXE proved very good. And I think the Cannabis makes the side effects worse. Especially the feeling of elevated heart rate.

(+4:45) Finished soup and cleaning up. It wasn't too hard to eat and tasted quite good. Began watching more internet videos.

(+5:20) Nothing interesting to report. Winding down. Going to try to sleep again.


End of notes written while undergoing trial.

(+14:10) The next day. Woke up a pretty tired which is common for me after a trip. I don't know how long it took me to get to sleep but it seems like I slept for a rather long time. Basically back to baseline at this time.

25D is a somewhat novel 25X compound. 4-Aco-DMT would be much better for a serious trip. The side effects of 25D can be felt especially while smoking Cannabis. I did not notice the side effects while in combination with MXE and in fact that trial went very well. Listening to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was a great time. So my final verdict here is that as far as a mild short-lived phenethylamine buzz goes, 25D is not a bad compound. However, I would certainly take LSD or probably most other tryptamines over it. There is strength in how mild the experience is; I have taken 25D and gone to be around people, never have I been outed as 'high.'
