This was my first time with this substance. After performing the allergy test - it has a weird taste, but not unpleasant to me at all, Ive decided to take 40mg further complimented by 15mg 4-Aco-MET. A little over than 24 hours before that I've taken 100mcg (1 blotter) of ETH-LAD that produced mind-blowing trip when I decided to smoke a huge bowl with concentrates during the peak. I know the tolerance had played a huge role but with me lysergamides do not have as much cross-tolerance to tryprtamines and I only have two days off a week and I was excited to try something new...

Subject: 170Lbs male with about 10 years of extensive psychoactives research which includes: DMT, Mushrooms, 4-Aco-DMT, 4-Aco-MET, 4-Aco-DET, 4-HO-MiPT, 4-HO-DPT, LSD, AL-LAD, ETH-LAD, ALD-52, Mescaline, Allylescaline, Methallylescaline, 2C-P, bk-2C-B, 2-CB-FLY, MDMA, Amanitas, Salvia, Amphetamines and other stims. Previous trip was on 100mcg ETH-LAD a day ago. Almost empty stomach (light vegetarian breakfast taken) prior the experience.

Set & setting: Solo trip, at home, late at night, feeling comfortable, excited about experience.

Dose: 40mg (measured on a decent milligram scales with +/- 1mg) of 4-HO-EPT, encapsulated in two gel caps - 30mg with the 10mg chaser. 15mg of 4-Aco-MET was also consumed at an hour and 45 minutes into the experience.

Experience:

T=00:00 - Took the first capsule with some green tea and going to take a shower.

T+00:30 - First alerts - noticed changes in the thought process, very light. Smoked some cannabis.

T+00:45 - Took the second capsule before the psychedelic train had departed and smoked some more cannabis

T+01:00 - Definitely psychedelic head space emerging, body starting to feel light as air, my hands are weightless. Mind gets clearer minute by minute and Im loving the feeling. No visual or auditorial activity noticed. Pronounced intellectual stimulation - browsing books, psychology, art, spirituality, natural healing, human archetypes, Bradbury, Huxley, e. t. c. I spent some time with the runes as well - I highly recommend 'The Book of Runes' by Ralph Bloom for those interested in esoteric discoveries.
Insight is extremely easy at this point, I feel that my mind is ever-expanding... Far from ego death and not even feeling the softening of it, nor the withdrawing, like with 4-Aco-MET, rather the ego feels blissfully integrated with the body and the world around.

T+01:40 - I'm seriously enjoying the headspace. It is deeply satisfying in a cosmic orgasmic kind of way...
The thought about the tolerance from the previous day and losing that wonderful feeling makes me measure and eat 15mg of 4-Aco-MET - I really want THIS to last as long as it can. It was rather a quick decision based on my immediate thought and it turned out to be a great idea!

Some sweating is noticed, very similar to my 'lucy sweats' - very enjoyable to me. More cannabis is smoked as well.

T+02:30 - No visuals or other perceptual changes that are noteworthy. But I'm glowing, feeling invincible, fearless, and not with over-inflated stimmed up ego, but rather with God-like Understanding. Thinking of my past mistakes is easy and productive, this substance makes me want to trust my instincts. Feels like the extrasensory ability is amplified, I feel very calm and ready for anything. Feeling of Great Transcendence is all-enveloping. I'm thinking: 'Why can't we bring that amazing clear feeling into our everyday life? Why do we always forget it, why forget the most important lessons and fall into own ego traps again and again?...' It makes me understand why certain people decide to become monks/nuns for the rest of their life - it is a way for trying to maintain that blissful egoless feeling of acceptance.
I feel wonderful, not euphoric but rather naturally awed and quieted down by the importance of accepting what is NOW.

T+03:00 - Coming down already, in a similar way as with LSD - still feeling very transcendent and light as air! Body feels weightless. Contemplating the nature around me, watching cars go by with people in them going by their business thinking their busy thoughts, even the grey snowy sky looks appealing and full of bliss!

Smoking cannabis with 4-HO-EPT reminds me of smoking it while tripping on LSD - it feels that the cannabis high cannot penetrate the true high given by the psychedelic and just providing some smoothing out effects. Full of insights, glowing with understanding, lots of art ideas and thoughts of social participation (I'm usually quite a hermit). I feel genuinely happy!

T+04:00 - Very intellectual and pleasant afterglow, feeling serene. Still no thoughts of eating. Deep appreciation of finer concepts of life. Taking shower...

T+05:00 - Food tasted normal, reduced appetite and no real desire for sex. After eating took 150mg of 5-HTP and 100mg of L-Theanine. Sleep was achieved within an hour.

Next day - Woke up refreshed even though slept for only 4 hours.
Took a daily stack of nootropics upon waking up and it was triggering flashbacks of trip's insights throughout the day, very nice! At work I was so wise and productive that a co-worker of mine bought me a six pack of beer after my revealing speech about relationships!

Conclusion:
What an amazing substance! Pure intellectual bliss with very very strong analysis enhancement and patterns recognition. My mind felt stunningly clear and very aware. 4-HO-EPT made me feel very similar to when I was able to achieve satori (deep blissful realization of WHAT IS, that is very short in duration) during deep meditation session or the feeling of AWE when I am swept by the beauty of nature at certain moments of life. I really want to call it 'Angel Dust', because that's how it felt to me - incredibly light, airy and very transcending. This substance has pronounced 'Air' spirit so it would be good for 'Airy' individuals and especially good when taken high in the mountains where there's a lot of winds imo...
Not sure if my experience could be considered +++ by Shulgin's scale because it makes me forget that I took the drug and focus deeply on Understanding.
It definitely shares similarities with LSD, in fact that was the only tryptamine that was reminiscent of its effects (I haven't tried 4-HO-MPT yet).

I see a huge potential with this substance for self-work, meditational practices and micro-dosing. The gift of 4-HO-EPT is in its intellectual properties entirely, I don't expect hedonistic feelings and pretty visuals. It may be used as a 'deepening' agent in combinations with other trypts I'm thinking - felt a very nice synergy with 4-Aco-MET. Could be used as a party social drug but in a warm organic hippie atmosphere rather than stimmed up laser clubbing. I ranked it high along with my other favorites.

A clear clean mental trip that doesn't last too long and does not load my body and psyche, reading and writing was remarkable with it. Also I have not noticed any body load besides quite pleasurable sweats.
