Let me begin with some context: I have tried many substances in varying amounts, but I have primarily focused on hallucinogens, namely psychedelics. In terms of psychedelics I have tried LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, 2C-B and Amanita muscaria mushrooms. I’ve also tried MDMA, which has had a profound effect on my post-traumatic stress that afflicted me after being assaulted in a hospital following a suicide attempt. Finally, I’ve tried copious amounts of diphenhydramine and hydrocodone/APAP. I also smoked hashish a few times but never really enjoyed it that much.
I recently acquired twenty 120mg MDMA capsules as well as ten 20mg 2C-B capsules from an extremely reliable and experienced darknet vendor. I have been trying them in varying amounts and have found them both to be extremely pleasant substances, especially with friends. I never found the psychedelic effects of 2C-B to be as intense or spiritual as those of LSD, and after reading the entry from Alexander Shulgin’s PiHKAL, I decided to hike up my dose.
T+0: I had been pre-hydrating quite a bit, as MDMA can be extremely dehydrating. I took three capsules of MDMA, a total of 360mg, and washed it down with a glass of lemonade. I had not eaten for at least six prior to this, nor did I feel hungry. I usually take care of all of those needs before a trip. The time was 2200, Eastern Standard Time.
T+20: No effects felt yet. Started to fill up my bathtub with hot water and soap to make a bubble bath. Went down to kitchen to make chamomile tea with honey and lemon, was acting pretty much normal with alright coordination. Maybe my speech was a tad sped up but I’m not certain.
T+35: Definitely feeling something at this point, like an inner warmth that was warming my soul. This was extremely pleasant. As I sipped the warm chamomile, it tasted amazing, I had never remembered chamomile tasting this good. Each sip tasted slightly different and it really enhanced both the physical and cognitive euphoria that was sweeping over me. Body temperature was noticeably higher, relatively acute mydriasis. Heart rate slightly elevated.
T+45: Oh god, the bath was about to overflow! This did not affect me, I drained it a bit and got in. The slight sense of euphoria and warmth from getting into a hot shower or bath was exponentially amplified. I was simply focusing on that feeling for several seconds and the waves of comfort and warmth that were moving up my appendages towards my torso. I was feeling extremely horny at the moment so I decided to jerk one off. Felt beyond amazing, pure ecstasy, warmth filled my body. I feel like I had orgasmed at least five times. When I got out of the bath, I felt like I had a profound, deep connection with every object such as toothpaste or those really annoying earwigs that somehow get in your house. I definitely felt the stimulant effects but I also definitely felt a sedating effect. I was extremely calm, very mellow.
T+60: Still going up at a very pleasant rate. I was listening to music on my phone through earbuds and I had the strange sensation that I could feel the music, almost like auditory to tactile synesthesia. I switched over to the next song and still felt it. Euphoria and tranquility was getting much stronger. Body temperature elevated, extreme mydriasis as well as an elevated heart rate. Blood pressure was 110/60.
T+1:30: I decided to take five 20mg 2C-B capsules (I prefer capsules over pills). I know that is a lot, to say the least, and I was hoping to getting more than I would with a normal 20mg dose. At this point I honestly felt that the trip couldn’t take a wrong turn due to the complete tranquility I was in and the fact I had “pretreated” myself with MDMA and clonidine. I had a few Seroquel pills ready just in case.
T+2:00 The effects seemed to be coming on very quickly. At this point I felt like I was at the peak of a 40mg trip. The walls had wavy tops and were breathing. The patterning was extremely intricate at this point and thus is beyond difficult to explain. Physically, I felt much lighter. I was not nervous at all, and the euphoria from both the MDMA and 2C-B seemed to be getting even stronger. When I went to the bathroom, the geometry was playing in a really fascinating way with the bathroom tiles and the lights. I also noticed that sounds were echoing and when I turned off my music there were well, “odd” sounds to say the least. I’ve noticed that psychedelics can have some pretty strange sounds. There were some odd, but not menacing moans and groans as well as some calm and somewhat welcoming whispers. Closed eye imagery was about the same as opened eyes.
T+2:45: At this point I started losing track of time and sort of just completely lost my touch and contact with reality and external stimuli. When I shut my eyes, I lost all will to open them again as I was completely immersed into a very different and splendid landscape. I was seeming floating around in what could have been space, although the sky was hundreds of vibrant and beautiful shades of blue as opposed to black. In the sky, there were dozens, maybe hundreds of scintillating fractals, namely the Mandelbrot set that were ever changing in detail. Floating far away from me was a ravine or canyon, with firm gray stone topped with very bright green grass that had hundreds of flowers that I could see in detail even from my point of reference. There was a huge waterfall with water falling down the top of the canyon, falling into the infinite abyss below me.
The largest and most noticeable structure there however was a massive monastery like structure build into the side of the ravine. The structure was made out of the same grey stone as the ravine, topped with a maroon roof that is prominent in some oriental architecture. Next to the large monastery was a massive obelisk that towered above it and was around the same height as the ravine. I journeyed closer to the monastery. In the end I never reached it but the closer I got, the more detail I could see in both the monastery, obelisk and ravine. The amount of detail was breathtaking, and is beyond impossible to explain. This whole time I was still feeling the rushes of warmth from the MDMA, but accompanied by rushes of coldness. This coldness was not unpleasant in the least, I could easily compare it to a cool breeze on a warm autumn day. Slowly I drifted back to where I was before until the monastery was no longer in sight. I slowly opened my eyes and readjusted myself to the real world. I checked my phone. The song was “Lebanese Blonde” by Thievery Corporation and the time was around 0400 EST. I stayed awake for the rest of the night.
Overall, the 2C-B was much stronger than I expected at a dose of 100mg, albeit for me, at that time, is was not overwhelming and was possibly the most profound and best trip I had ever had in my life. At a dose of 20mg, 2C-B could definitely enhance my school or work day, and provide some pleasant visuals, while also retaining the entactogenic effects of MDMA. At 100mg, it was every bit as powerful as 350µg of LSD. The experience was definitely life changing for the better, and I view the world as more vibrant and beautiful.
