[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]

I went to a party intending on taking 2C-B with two friends and horrifically mismanaged the dose. I mistakenly confused 0.013mg (small/medium dose) for 0.135mg (stupidly large dose).

I arrived at the party and was given a half gram of mandy, I bombed about a quarter (by eye so could easily have been less). We waited for a third party to arrive while drinking and noticed mild MDMA effects before consuming the 2C-B as I've consumed MDMA previously and have a tolerance (I usually take 0.3g to properly come up).

The third party arrived about an hour into the party and we split the 400mg of 2C-B (powder form which a week prior to this event an experienced friend said that he hadn't had such pure 2C-B in years) evenly between the three of us. I have taken the drug on 4 occasions spaced out over 4 years previously and I should have noticed the drastic increase in powder but didn't as it was so rarely consumed and I was intoxicated.

The two friends were first time users and one began coming up after 15/20 minutes. I began coming up after an estimated 30 minutes, but much quicker than all previous experiences.

We were sat in a small room in a party, and for around 3/4 hours spent the entire time getting increasingly more trippy. The visuals were intense but not in any way scary. In the past undulation and spacial movements of static objects had moved around 2-4cm. Tonight the visuals moved up to what seemed like a foot, ceiling tiles ascending into the sky and descending towards me while moving in all other conceivable directions. The closed eye visuals were incredible, a recurrent amount of fractal spirals in the brightest of colours all spiraling towards me. Movement was doable but my friends said they couldn't move and after the event told me they were experiencing audible hallucinations also. I was content to just remain almost lying on the floor with them, social conversation was largely 'I'm STILL coming up' and 'I can't believe how fucked I am, this is CRAZY'.

After 3/4 hours of this we decided to change location to my friend's house, which was close by. We managed the walk fine, and I was in great spirits but not hugely conversational. This was the point that I had peaked. Following entering my friends house I was becoming notably more grounded mentally, and after an hour there I insufflated a small bump of MDMA. This really leveled me out and was a good choice as enjoyable the experience was I had had my fill. I then relocated to another friend's house and spent 40 minutes there before returning home and enjoying the sensual side of the latter part of my trip, which was most enjoyable as if I've taken MDMA I can rarely climax. I promptly fell asleep and woke up the next day feeling tired and mildly cloudy in my head but no more so than if I'd smoked a big bag of weed the previous day.

In short, I've never tripped as hard in my life. I haven't had the largest experience of trips, but I doubt I'll ever experience such visual effects again and nor do I intend to. I had a thoroughly enjoyable experience which I do not intend to repeat, I will take 2C-B again (and have) but in the correct dose.

It's worth noting that I take no medication and that the following evening (Saturday) I took MDMA and 2C-B again but a regular dose and was able to attend work on Monday morning. However on the Tuesday I was subject to a upper vocal tract infection, I'm doubtful that this was caused by the drugs yet aware that it could have come as a side effect from a lowered immune system due to the heavy weekend or a possible drug allergy (or from making out with too many people).

Totally my most loved drug so far and please be really careful with the dose, it's a tiny amount you need to have a good night or you'll end up unable to do much at all but trip balls.

Note on my friends - they tripped for longer and possibly harder than me as it was their first time on 2C-B. Both were fine, however one was feeling the effects for a good 5/6 hours longer than myself and 1/2 hours longer than the third party.
