This experience happened two weeks ago as of this writing. I was out of town visiting an incredible girl who for anonymity purposes will be known as X from this point forward. This was near the end of my visit, and it would be our third time taking psychedelics together. On this trip I had tried 4-HO-MiPT and nitrous oxide each for the first time, and together. I found the combination quite enjoyable, especially after coming off of a dose of DMT, so I was eager to try the nitrous on LSD this time. X also told me that 4-HO-DiPT would make a good addition to the LSD experience, so she prepared me 25 mg to take at a later point and then pulled out four sugar cubes.
I decided that I wanted to see how these doses were going to hit me first, so I ate two sugar cubes. It occured to me as they were dissolving in my mouth that this would be more like a true oral dose than I was used to, as opposed to letting it sit on the tongue longer first, so I figured it might take a little longer to creep in too. X took her dose, and we just talked for a bit. At T+0:45 I was starting to feel pretty good, so I went ahead and ate the other two sugar cubes as well.
X likes to use nitrous to kick in her trips, so she started preparing balloons for us. The sound still got me off guard a bit, but I was getting more used to it. I want to say that she loaded somewhere between five and six chargers for me for the first balloon, with the most I'd done before being around four or five.
Around the time that I was really starting to feel the second dose kicking in and the first one approaching a peak, we got in bed together and prepared to inhale. Each time that I've had a balloon of nitrous so far, I've been feeling that there's definitely a traditional psychelic feel to it in the sense that I feel like the furthest into the dissociation I can go is only limited by how much I'm willing to let go of my normal consciousness, and to an extent how much I inhale of course. In my last encounter with it I had noticed that as the effects would start setting in there would be some anxiety about not being able to monitor my own health anymore the higher I got, and as I got higher there was also a feeling like I might pass out. After talking to X about this and putting more though into it, I realized that this was just my mind reacting to entering a drastically altered state, and it should be ignored. I tried to keep that in mind this time around.
As I held in lungfuls of nitrous, I felt the same tug as before, but I simply released myself into the experience and charged forward. A very orgasmic body feeling was steadily increasing, but at the same time I felt like I was becoming less aware of it. My field of vision mostly consisted of the ceiling with some bits of the wall in front of us in my lower peripherals, and suddenly textures began to appear as if they were constantly spinning around a point in the center of my vision but without ever leaving one set part of the circle, if that makes sense. Everything just had an intense rushing feel to it, and what I was seeing actually began to look like a desert (the first one that came to mind for me was Nevada) that I was seeing through a distorted lens like tunnel vision, and the sky was light blue along with some more minor psychedelic colors like neon greens and purples. There was an RV along the horizon of the image, and it appeared to be moving I think because of the way everything was still spinning, but I feel like it was actually parked. There were two girls hanging out outside of the RV, and the only thing I really remember about them is that they had long hair and were wearing sunglasses and daisy dukes. I just watched this scene for a moment before the effects started to fade and I began remembering that I was lying in bed in the hotel room. I definitely made it a lot further out with the nitrous that time than I had before.
X and I talked and laughed about our experiences, and at T+2:05 I decided to take my 25 mg of 4-HO-DiPT. We also decided to smoke some weed in the meantime. This is about the last time I really payed attention to time for while. While smoking we were just talking about various things - I recall trying to explain the way in which weed makes my life feel more 'third person' when I'm tripping - and X was loading us more balloons of nitrous. This time I want to say that I went with seven or eight chargers. X had told me that the 4-HO-DiPT would be kicking in pretty quickly and I was definitely starting to feel an extra energy building up, so I figured this balloon would probably kick in that trip as well.
We got back in bed and prepared to dive in again. What it was exactly escapes me now, but X mentioned noticing something odd as part of the experience in taking the nitrous, and I attempted to give some perspective on it but I forgot what I was saying almost as quickly as I started talking, and X just told me to keep inhaling. She continued to do this while I kept laughing, which is good because I honestly don't think I would have remembered to do so on my own. My vision was becoming replaced my two gigantic gears which were grinding against each other in opposite directions.
My vision was becoming replaced my two gigantic gears which were grinding against each other in opposite directions.
I was aware of this entire structure, but where my perspective was located was zoomed down to a microscopic level along the border where these two gears met. At this level, it was clear that the ridges of the gears were actually female faces; this is the same kind of visual I've had before when smoking Syrian rue on LSD years ago. However, this time it was more animated and remind me of the kinds of visuals I get from tripping while drunk.
Along the border, the faces were making out with each other, and if I watched them for long enough they would expand to full abstract scenery and perceptions of people. The cartoony visionary aspect of the visuals I was getting reminded me of combining LSD with mushrooms, but it was more futuristic and technicolor, more energetic. The combination was very nice. The imagery that was forming was always very romantic or erotic.
X and I talked more about our experiences as they were beginning to level out, and I noticed that all of my psychedelic doses were now running in full force. We both felt like exploring the outside world for a while, so after a little bit of preparation we went out for a walk. The first thing we really came across was a bridge covered in graffiti, one part of which was explicitly psychedelic. We took some pictures and then walked around some more trying to decide what to do. Eventually we decided to head down to the nearby nature preserve and check it out, which turned out to be a pretty good idea. There was really no one else there at any of the stops we went to, so we just got to enjoy the mindset of beauty of it all. I got to see forests and valleys way beyond what I normally get to see at home, and some gorgeous lakes as well at the bottom of those. The psychedelics of course only made this all even more wonderful, as did getting to enjoy it all with X. I took lots of pictures and just appreciated life for a bit.
I would say that by this point the 4-HO-DiPT was starting to lose most of its influence on me - it really does hit fast and then not last too long - but the LSD had switched more into its second phase which is always more stimulating to me. X and I had actually been talking about the studies researching the differences in these two phases earlier on and so we were both eager to see if doing nitrous again would be different this time around after we allowed that transition to happen. Eventually we headed back to the hotel room to find out.
Upon arrival we smoked more weed while X prepared the balloons, and this time I definitely used eight more chargers. The visuals had died down a little bit by the time we returned, but even just being back in that room was bringing back the feeling from before a bit again. However, when the nitrous was kicking in this time, there was almost no significant visual focus whatsoever, but rather an auditory one, which isn't really something I had gotten from nitrous before. I thought it was interesting because X and I had been talking about DiPT earlier when in the preserve, and now I was getting an experience with a strong auditory component. We were still just talking during our experience, and everything that we said was echoing several times and hearing registered in a very low pitch. During this experience X also imparted to me something of great importance to remember, so I did my best to take it to heart. We continued our discussions until the effects began to wind down again, and then we decided to smoke some weed and order some pizza. We just ordered it from a local place, but it was freaking delicious!! It was definitely a great way to feel refreshed at the end of a long day.
We ended up doing nitrous once more after this which was mostly just a refresh of the earlier experience for me, and I remembered what X had told me. Afterwards we ended up watching a movie that X really wanted me to see and that fit the mood of the trip for me perfectly, and then we ended up ending the night on an (innocent) romantic note, before finally going to bed.
X kept saying about this experience that it had a strong anti-anxiety effect on her, and I would definitely have to say the same about my own. I laughed a lot and really enjoyed myself. The LSD and 4-HO-DiPT also made for a beautiful combination, and being able to let go into the nitrous more than I had before several times left me feeling even more confident than I had already been feeling lately with all the tripping I've been doing. As this was also the last full day of my visit with X too, I felt it was a very nice send off. It left me in pretty high spirits when I got home.
The last note I would add is that I would really like to try 4-HO-DiPT by itself some time too. It certainly seemed like it has some promise to me, and the onset and duration seem like they'd make it very practical. I can say at least that it made for an excellent complement to the first phase of the LSD.
