Background: It was my first time with this particular substance but Iíve done Methylone, MDMA, MDA, and an obscure synthetic cathinone called 4-EMC, so I have experience with euphoric empathogens. I am a 145lb male.
T-1.5hr: I had some spicy buffalo wings since I didnít have anything in my stomach.
T-30min: I took some TUMs, preparing for liftoff.
T+0: I drop ~120mg 5-MAPB (accurate to 0.01g) and everybody else doses as well. Everyone is finally at the party and I begin to roll my blunt as Iím coming up. I donít smoke until Iím coming down, but having a blunt pre-rolled is a miracle post-roll when you remember it.
T+30min: I get my first alerts, a subtle change in the way my voice sounds to myself. This always happens to me when I roll and itís my sign to smoke a cigarette. This cigarette is typically the thing that shoots me into my roll. I go outside and light my stoge and the first drag hits me hAARD. I flee to the corner of the backyard and reunite with my buffalo wings, though theyíre not so pretty this time. At this point Iím thinking Ďshit I hope I didnít throw up my doseí, but alas I just wait it out and see if it still hits.
T+40min: I go back inside and a bowl is being passed so I hit it a few times and I definitely notice an extra something thatís not just weed, but it hasnít established its character yet. Yaboi lit tho.
T+1hr: Iím a little disappointed; I expected the 5-MAPB to be less underwhelming than this. I havenít reached an emergent state at this point so I opt to snort some of my redose. I break open the 5-MAPB cap and dump the 70mg onto a mirror. I eyeball it into a ľ pile and a ĺ pile and lined up ~20mg. It snorted nice. I slowly coated my membranes and I felt automatically fucked, in a good way. I gave the ĺ pile to a friend that didnít get any as I was pleased with the effect of my tiny line.
T+1hr,10min: Iím talking to a friend and like a lightswitch had been flicked in my brain I realized I was rolling! Oh shit, Iím talking to someone. I dismissed myself and headed outdoors for a celebration ciggy. DAMN that was everything I want in a cigarette, but near the end of it I realized that I didnít even remember smoking it, conversation dominated my attention. I loved listening to people talk but I wasnít necessarily compelled to speak. I noticed a definite ďmental stoningĒ effect that I could discern from the effects the marijuana provided. This was like super chill ex, not speedy at all but not blowing me away with euphoria either, Iím just content af and I want a hug from my girlfriend. After I realized how great of an idea the line was I convinced all of the others with redoses to do the same if they werenít satisfied yet, so just like that 4 others joined my ranks and were now definitely rolling.
T+2hr: The roll was only just showing its first signs of waning but at this point music sounds incredible. Itís not emotionally significant like during an intense MDMA roll but it still sounds way better than normal. A group favorite beat comes on and myself and a few others go in on some freestyles for a good 15 minutes. The ďI love youísĒ were spreading through the party about this time.
T+2.5hr: One of my best friends of all time shows up and we share a shot and a conversation.
T+4hr: Iíve had about 4 shots at this point and I donít even notice an impairment from the alcohol- I am mentally sharp as a tack. Social anxiety is down about 200% for me. My roll had died down a bit, but Iím still stimulated, my consciousness is undoubtedly altered, Iím a lot more ďloveyĒ and less tense than normal. As my roll was down I decided to have myself some cocaine. I bought a .2 and railed a .1, giving the other half to a friend that didnít quite roll as hard as most. It is at this point that my attention span dies and my recollection of the night gets pretty shotty.
T+5hr: 7 shots down at this point. Everybodyís breaking out their weed and we just smoke down, since everybody is pretty much coming down. Iím high af but not void of energy. The night up to this point is a blur, but in this moment I have what I called ďan unachievable highĒ, a high that wonít be seen anytime soon.
T+7hr: after 10 shots (at least) and another .2 of coke everybody is starting to head out, and me and my coke partner share real talk and many-a-cigarette as the survivors of the night.
Overview: 5-MAPB is not MDMA, but it has qualities that I like. It was extremely gentle mentally and physically, apart from the jaw tension that set in after about 4 hours. It enhanced tactile perception but not to the pleasurable extent of MDMA or psychedelics. I would place the intensity under that of methylone and MDMA. It had a lot of qualities I want in a roll without me having to put my seatbelt on, so to speak. It would be a good component to a psychedelic mix. I will use it in the future at a higher dosage and I believe it to be a relatively good chemical, though Iím not sure I would add it to my toolbox. 3.75/5 stars but that rating could improve once I explore its personality more.
