600 ug sublingual 25I-NBOMe (blotter / tab)


Me - 30 year old female, extensive history with uppers especially MDMA but not so much psychedelics with some dabblings in LSD, mushrooms, 4-meo-dmt, 2cb, 2ci & 1 nbombe experience which is probably the strongest to date.

I'm a self confessed control freak and harbour lots of anxieties & day to day worries that tend to sway me away from psychedelics but somewhat recently, my interest has been sparked again and I considered this a warm up for what is to be The Ultimate in terms of psychedelics (youD know what iM taking abouT right?)

Setting - Monday noon, dull cool day with nobody home for the foreseeable hours. Some benzos as backup in case things get too out of hand.

My goal - some pleasant visuals but no loss of who I am or what I've done.

I acquired 2 x 1200ug green blotters from a reputable source and after briefly reflecting on what was once an overwhelming, somewhat frightening trip a year ago, I cut one of the blotters in half to only ingest 600ug and let it sit under my tongue for around 30 mins at the very least.

The taste is bitter and unpleasant like others have said but NOTHING like what MDMA or other powerful amphetamines feel like on my tongue where I want to dry heave.

Within what felt like only 15-20 mins and a gentle surge in energy, I started to feel the familiar shifting and distortion of visuals - only apparent when I stopped to observe them but fascinating when I actually did.

Leaning down somewhat unsteadily, I stared in awe at the textured granite floor tiles, suddenly writhing and crawling with small snakes, pressed tightly against each other, their skin perfectly patterned and moving in sync.

I gazed at my arm and the same thing was happening there - writhing, squirming, undulating snake skins (no heads or faces) but all under my skin. Freckles and blemishes no longer stayed stationary but darted from point to point against thin, circulating skin imposed with spectacular geometric/Aztec designs which wouldn't stay still enough for me to properly focus on them and the more I tried to focus, more and more layers of geometric images would keep piling on top of them, sparking and streaming with fluorescent colours. There was nothing frightening about it because I get the same visuals no matter which psychedelic I tamper with but still mindblowing nonetheless.

Remembering I had some food in the oven (word of warning - cooking and psychedelics DONT mix mmmmkay kids) I attempted to plate it up but kept giggling as the food somewhat squirmed and wiggled around - the mozzarella strands transformed into mischievous maggots, the black pepper kept popping and ricocheting all over the plate. The whole thing was a morphing mess and I was going to attempt to eat it? It seemed absurd, preposterous! But I ate it anyway, getting no pleasure yet no repulsion from it either.

Managing to safely get myself and the mischievous mozzarella back to the ground level, I thought it best to shut myself in my bedroom with the curtains drawn considering shit was starting to get very intense.

As I lay back on my bed, the neutral walls (the BEST kind for psychedelics) started to drip colour - colours indescribable, every spectrum, glistening, sparkling and shimmering. In my peripheral vision, small fireworks of gold glitter and dust were exploding everywhere to my delight. I was giggling, felt light yet with a strong body load - almost MDMA like in that my toes felt like they were being sensually rubbed and my back stroked by beings that I could sense but couldn't see. At one point, the colours became so intense it actually felt like I was in some kind of insane geometric LSD candyland with pink and oranges and fairydust everywhere and I started giggling quite contently.

I'm pretty sure this is the point I messaged my friend saying there were 'candypeople' around. It was like being inside La La LoopsyLand, candycanes and ferris wheels with fairy floss and whimiscal objects and a general sense of merriment.

As I gazed around me, there was no definition between myself and other objects - just an almost transparent, iridescent. flourescent spiders web, is the best way I can describe it, gently meshing us all, bonding us all together, swaying as if by the slightest cosmic breeze, every colour of the psychedelic rainbow with sparkles and flashes of gold peppered with fizzes of silver dust.
Absolutely breathtaking!

And when I closed my eyes.........
A massive grin must have appeared on my face because I can't even begin to describe - it was like endless corridors of gigantic jewels, not prismic in design but more like large, untouched, uncarved domes of pure crystal upon a backdrop of deep, rich purple, but not just FLAT purple, more like the iridescent purple of a peacocks feather, shimmering beautifully, multifaceted then suddenly, racing layers of peacock feathers were being flung down at an astronomical rate, like dominos knocking onto each other but coloured feathers instead - RED PINK PURPLE BLUE AQUA TEAL VIOLET - the colours were so breathtaking and not anything I would expect to see in normal reality. Jewels and feathers in the richest, most majestic royal colours where in every direction possible, spanning out towards infinity

I opened my eyes, smiling, body tingling and there was a gold mist enveloping the entire room it was delicate and sparkling yet it wavered like an ethereal shimmer over everything, including me.

What if this was actual reality?

We are all interconnected to each other and every other object and only our disconnection from our true selves and the spirit world puts up these barriers, these barriers which we crazily believe to be reality. What if these substances causes our conditioning to be broken down and the TRUE universe to become apparent?

During the 'trip' I had a feeling of there being entities around - neither pleasant nor unpleasant but definitely THERE as though somehow watching over my experience in amusement, bewilderment or maybe even that was the other 'me' looking down on my drug-affected actions and interactions with my surroundings. Who knows?

I took half the blotter at noon, felt effects around 12.30pm - was peaking hard between 1.30pm and 3pm

and now at 4pm am obviously coherent enough to have sat and wrote this report out while its fresh in my mind and my body does have a lovely warm feeling to it, not as euphoric as MDMA but certainly pleasant, tingly and enjoyable.

If I were taking this late at night I would almost certainly need some assistance to get to sleep (which is why I made this a daytime trip). Last time I dropped a full nbombe at 11pm I got no sleep that night and it wasn't very pleasant at all hence taking half the dose today and at a different time for this particular experience.

Now to take a full blotter - I cant even imagine!
