First off, I've experienced legitimate Mephedrone previously on two occasions and since then various Mephedrone replacements.

I acquired the 4-FMC with the hope that it might mimic some of the effects of 4-MMC, I'd previously taken 4-FMC from a different source and found it quite speedy but lacking entactogenically. Another strange effect I noted was I awoke the next day with an enormous (3-4cm wide) blister on my shin, I was not burnt or hurt in any way, and I've never experienced anything like it from any drug, ever.

This time however, I acquired 1g of 4-FMC. It was a fine crystalline powder which glimmered in the light, smell wise it had the classic vague smell of lemons / citrus that I've found many fluoro substituted amphets / cathinones to have (4-FA comes to mind). I split my 1g in half and put the other half gram in a distant and inaccessible location so it was off limits.

0:00 - I measured out 50mg of the crystals, it clumped together into little fluffy balls of powder. I spread it out into a line and snorted it. The burn was actually remarkably mild, initially hurt but quickly faded, surprisingly nose friendly, however the drip was pretty gross.

0:30 - I've noticed some bruxism which has come and gone, my hands feel a bit sweaty and cold but other than a very mild stimulation I notice little to no psychological effects.

1:00 - I'm starting to think I may have swallowed the majority of the dose, I have the occasional tingle across my scalp but very difficult to discern from regular sobriety.

1:24 - I measure out another 50mg and snort it, same mild burn.

1:40 - Very slight increase in stimulation, still not much going on.

2:00 - I'm feeling a bit chatty, but the feeling is very mild and a bit boring. At this stage I measure out 150mg and put it into a capsule. I take the capsule and work on my computer for a while.

2:40 - I noticed an increase in the physical stimulation but there's not much going on mentally.

3:30 - I've been working on my computer for a while, I still feel quite normal mentally. I notice a very vague stimulation, but it's very very mild. At this stage I'm feeling very bored and a bit dysphoric (perhaps due to disappointment in this compound).

4:00 - Still nothing major, plateau effects which aren't really getting stronger or weaker at this stage. I measure out 2.5ml of GHB and consume it.

4:30 - Feeling quite nice now, chatty and social. However I attribute this almost entirely to the GHB. 4-FMC has proven to be quite disappointing at the dosages I've tried. At this point I decide not to take any more for the night.

Conclusion: Nothing special, one of my friends who tried this same batch noted much stronger effects, perhaps it's very variable between individuals. In my opinion it's worth a crack if you're curious, but it's nothing to write home about.
