||(powder / crystals)
This isn't just a single-test report. I've noticed there aren't many anecdotal listings about this drug online so I'm gonna provide some general information I've gathered.
First things first, if you have empty capsules use them for this drug. Snorting 2-FMA is unpleasant and doesn't provide additional benefits aside from kicking in 15 minutes quicker. It's a white powder that clumps and won't form into easily crushed snort-able lines. Taking 2-FMA in a capsule seems to provide a cleaner, smoother come up and stimulation. Swallowing a capsule will take almost an hour for effects to kick in. Add 15 more minutes if I just ate food.
This drug is part of the Amphetamine family so its stimulation qualities are similar to adderall. Although it has Methamphetamine in its name, I don't feel its comparative to Meths effects.
As expected from an Amphetamine, 2-FMA suppresses my appetite. I eat a good sized meal an hour before ingesting 2-FMA. I've found the appetite returns within a few hours after ingestion but I treat my body right by eating before hand.
Re-dosing is okay, but I wouldn't recommend more than one re dose per day. A good example would be taking a 30mg capsule in the morning, then another 30mg capsule 4 hours later. Too many doses in a day, or too many in a short span doesn't provide me with more positive effects, but rather a cracked-out, sweaty, over-stimulated feeling.
Individuals who already have an amphetamine tolerance might have an initial tolerance to 2-FMA as well.
Personally, my pupils don't get dilated from 2-FMA, but I have had friends get slightly dilated pupils from larger doses (50mg+).
(The following dose ranges are for me, i.e. with minimal amphetamine tolerance)
- - THE LOW DOSE (15mg - 30mg) - -
What's great about this substance is I can take a very small dose (~20mg) and achieve remarkably clean stimulation. At this dose I experience no side effects, with around 4-5 hours of stimulation. It's more motivating than caffeine, although it won't make me pace my house looking for something to do. It's completely possible for me to take this drug and sit around in content.
At the lower doses, I find caffeine to work very synergestically with 2-FMA. Sometimes I'll put 100mg caffeine powder in a capsule with around 25mg of 2-FMA. These doses are both low, meaning no side effects but great physical and mental energy.
If I use this drug for weight lifting, I use the smallest dose that works to avoid overworking my heart.
I don't have ADHD or ADD, so when I take too much of an amphetamine, they can actually be counter productive when needing to sit still and study or write a paper. These small doses are great for achieving mental energy without the physical energy side-tracking my ability to accomplish that.
- - THE UPPER DOSE - - (50mg+)
Again, those with high amphetamine tolerances might need these higher doses just to get effects from this drug.
The first time I ever took 2-FMA I scooped about 65mg into a capsule. An hour later I had an incredible energy rush. Moderate Euphoria, major desire to socialize, physical energy was through the roof, I just wanted to do something, anything.
Side effects were certainly present. Underarm sweating was a problem and jaw clenching was persistent. My leg muscles were cramping just a little bit. The euphoria only lasted around an hour which faded into plenty of stimulation. These effects lasted around 8 hours, but took around 12 hours to truly fade away.
2-FMA isn't what I would consider a recreational drug considering other drugs in its class (4-FA for example) are more naturally euphoric, but when I take one of these higher doses and go party, I definitely have a good time. Social interactions are more enjoyable, I feel an uplifted feeling and I certainly have the energy to go all night.
