Before I begin, the two ROA's produce completely different effects at the dose amount I had taken as well as the order they were first administered. (Variables to consider). Also I had not taken any other substance(s) leading up that point as well as maintaining a morning breakfast burrito as far as what I had in my belly for the day.

That being said, I know what I'm getting myself into as well as the risks that come along with this type of experimentation. Please be careful and have all the tools needed to ensure accurate doses as well as a safe environment to conduct allergy testing and further dosing after the fact.

First off was vape, 4 or 5 times prior to my oral dose of 33mg. This method seemed frightening at first as I was unfamiliar with the possible outcome of which a-pvp would deliver. However I was able to properly and safely gauge the amount of this I was taking in, all while being able to anticipate/predict the next dosages effects as I started at 4mg and added 2-3mg each dose after the next. **my final dose this evening was also via the vape method, totaling roughly 15mgs. (There was still a reasonable amount of vapor that I was unable to inhale due to the fact I'm a total newb with this type of administration.)

I would also like to add the taste is not as raw or chemically that one would think it would be. It almost gives you a taste of something that is slightly burned but once sweet. That aside, you feel in control of how much you choose to do as well as how often. The one downside to this method is the rapid increase in heart rate. It was never the scary heart attack feeling a prior user had described to me but a few times right after dosing, I feel mild uneasiness...I do attribute that to obviously the roa and dose amount but also a general uneasy state of mind knowing I was doing what I was doing (i.e., anxiety and nervousness). After each dose you feel similar stimulant effects as the dose before but after that stim rush kicks in you're then followed up by a strong sense of euphoria. These feelings will all but subside anywhere from 10-30 minutes after the point of the 'feelings' onset shortly after you exhale the vapor/smoke.

The second Roa was oral. This method seemed to only prolong or influence my feelings of being introverted? (Typically I am very social and able to communicate with anyone in most settings) I was able to be in control of my body and decision making however the words and facial expression I opted for when communicating felt incorrect for what I was trying to convey. This may be an internal thing I deal with when sober but this substance makes me feel out of place in social situations, more so with people I feel uncomfortable being around to being with. That aside I didn't feel much if any euphoria with this ROA. I played a hell of game of darts with my friend Adam. Ended up winning 2-1 out of 3 games. Much like the feelings I had regarding my internal understanding I had of myself with how I spoke and even looked when conversations spring up, I was able to dissect my dart throwing mechanics much more thoroughly and make changes with a great amount of immediate impact on my success. Once I left there I went back home around 215 and dosed once again with vapor as well as tried to put some on 2 cigs for the late night I had ahead me...I say tried because my cigarettes ended up losing 90 + percent of the 10mg I put on them. I did not feel or even taste anything when I tried that method - do not recommend it as clearly it is a very rough way to secure any sort of success with that or even any substance.

Over the 7 hours I took roughly 120 mg with 33 being orally and the remainder being vaped on tin foil. I took my oral dose at 12am having already done 35-40 mg orally at that point. I returned home to vape a little more and play pool. I'm finally in bed.

Overall with this being my first time using a-pvp I recognize the dangers this substance has in store but with the right tools, time and friends..one can enjoy this substance with control.
