T+ 0:00
125 mg oral BK-2C-B (capsule)
  T+ 2:00   smoked Cannabis  


BK-2-CB herein referred to as BK.
I had planned for a while for this trip, and spent a week before abstaining from cannabis. In the 24 hours preceding the trip, I fasted and attempted to slow my body and mind down for what was to come. I had read pretty much all the limited information available online about the substance, and felt I had a good idea of dosage and effects.

I was in a good frame of mind, having had a job interview the preceding day, and receiving a text saying I had the job. My previous experience with pyschedelics includes mushrooms, mdma, lsa, salvia, fly agaric and copious amounts of cannabis. I would say I'm more of a 'journeyman' than an expert. I chose BK-2-CB as I wanted to try something new and unexplored, and to be honest, as it's legal, it was easy to obtain compared to MDMA or LSD.

Prep - I measured out around 125mg of BK, and loaded it into two empty gel capsules. I then wrapped these in Raw rolling papers.

(I apologise in advance for the lack of accurate timings of my trip)

T+0.00 - I decided the best time to drop BK would be early morning, to allow for a daytime trip. I always prefer tripping in the daytime. Sometimes nighttime can be a scary time, and because I like loud music when I trip, I don't have my sound system on during the night for obvious reasons. I had gone to sleep around midnight and i set an alarm for 5.30am. As soon as my alarm went off, I swallowed the two capsules along with a gulp of orange juice. I then promptly fell back to sleep.

T+2.00 - I woke at around 7.30am. The BK was going at full blast! I had previously set up a big TV in front of my bed, and straight away I put on Dumbo and lit a joint. The film was very enjoyable- amazing visuals and sound, and it transported me back to my childhood. I also kept needed to piss, stopping the film every 10-15 mins or so, and I had the expected vasoconstriction that I experience with MDMA.

T+4.30 - Extreme open and closed eye visuals. At this point I was wondering maniacally around my bedroom, unable to relax or sit down or concentrate on anything. At one point I wasnt sure if my eyes were open or closed, the visuals were identical whether my eyes were open or not. I remember using my fingers to hold my eyes open to confirm to myself that they were open. Nothing seemed real, all reality seemed to be breaking down. I had moments of lucidity and moments of intense psychedelia. All this time, i had the radio playing Smooth Radio. This helped to keep my mind in reality, as the gentle voices, smooth music and time updates reminded me that there was something else out there.

t+6.00 - After close to an hour of maniacally running round the top floor of my house, my body seemed to shut down. I don't know whether it was the BK, the lack of food in the previous 24 hours or that my body needed to slow down and restart, but I ended up in a fetus position on the floor. This was a scary part of the trip. My brain slowed down to a crawl, and if I had continued lying there, I have no idea what my brain and body would have done. A tiny part of my brain was willing me to get up, and it took all my brain power and body strength just to pick myself up off the floor.

t+7.00 - I jumped in the shower. It was exactly what my body needed. It felt like the water was putting life back into my tired and dry body. Colour came back into the world. Before that, everything was grey and dull, but as the water flowed over me, the sun outside became brighter, the bathroom became whiter and a healthy colour returned to my body. I still had moments when the world around me became dark and scary. This feeling continued for the rest of the day.

t+8.00 - I somehow decided to spring clean the house. It wasn't my original plan. I had originally wanted to walk to woodland nearby, but although it was a sunny day outside, the security and santuary of indoors suited my frame of mind. I zoomed around the house for hours, cleaning small sections of each room, then running to another room and cleaning for a few minutes there. I couldnt really relax or stop moving. I tried lying down, but things kept popping into my head that i needed to do.

t+12.00 - After what seemed like an eternity of cleaning, I was able to relax and have a cup of tea. I attempted to eat something, but my body wasnt hungry, even though i had barely eaten for nearly 36 hours. I still had moments when it felt like the fabric of reality was breaking down and that the universe would suddenly cease to exist. But it didn't, and after a sip of water, the feeling passed. Continuing into the night, my body and mind were worn out. Cannabis didn't seem a good idea, so I drank chamomile tea and stared into space. I didnt sleep very well that night. My brain was still too active. I managed to sleep around 24 hours after I took the BK, though that was broken sleep.

The next day I was worn out and felt disconnected. My jaw hurt and my stomach wasnt right. These feelings would continue for another few days.

All in all, it was an interesting trip. One I will certainly remember! I oscillate between wanting to do it again or leaving it a while longer.
