First of all I am a pretty seasoned psychedelic user, having tried LSD, Mescaline, Mushrooms, ETH-LAD, AL-LAD, 1p-LSD, 1p-ETH-LAD, 2C-B and bk-2C-B before. Bk-2C-B is the substance I am most experienced in having taken it more than 20 times reaching really high doses (up to 300mg).

Set and Setting: At home with a friend who has never tried any psychedelics before. My mom was away at work for 8 hours and she was supposed to go somewhere all night after leaving us with about a 16 hours timeframe to trip. (Note: it was my mom's apartment in which I grew up, in my home country. Having been away from home for a few years and all the tripping I have done being away from here.)

T+00:00 Took the 150mg in capsules (first time, having only parachuted before) on an empty stomach with freshly squeezed orange juice (also a first).

T+00:05 Sharp burning sensation in the stomach, must be the capsules dissolving in my stomach. It went away in about 2 minutes.

T+00:40 First effects start to show up, slight tingles on scalp and everything starts getting brighter and shinier as usual.

T+01:00 The come up came with a lot of nausea and vomiting, my body was getting filled with this warm energy and visuals started to appear ever so slightly. The effects continued to grow in intensity, music sounded really good at this point. Time was beginning to slow down.

T+03:00 It was at this point that I realised something off, as I said this the substance I took the most and I know its effects at the dosage I took, but now, it was way more intense than it should be at 150mg.
I know its effects at the dosage I took, but now, it was way more intense than it should be at 150mg.
The hallucinations were strong, as strong if not stronger than they were at 250mg, I thought it was because of the orange juice and that calmed me down a bit.

T+04:00 We started to have a bit of fun, I put on my rollerblades and started skating around the apartment while chewing on a sweeping brush, balanced chairs on my palms, chatting about random stuff and laughing about how we couldn't tell what time it was and what we did yesterday.

T+05:00 now it started to get weird, the visual and auditory hallucinations were getting a bit out of control and my thoughts were getting a bit scary, waves of anxiety and fear were hitting me, thoughts that the trip won't end till my mom comes home the next day or that someone will be knocking on the apartments door were really getting to me. I've also noted that the usual chills that I get from this substance were not present, instead I was feeling hot, everything was melting. The substance itself came in waves of fear and pleasure for the next few hours while we were doing stuff around the house.

T+08:30 All my fears came true when suddenly there was someone knocking at the door. It sounded and felt like the entire world was collapsing, like there was someone hitting my existence with a sledgehammer. I turned off all the lights and music and tried to hide. It was my mom, she started to call me, I didn't want to answer the door. My friend snapped me out of my cowardice and told me to open the door for her, and I did.

She came in, ran back to my room where I left the lights out so she can't see my eyes since my pupils where like dinner plates. I tried putting on a film for about half an hour and I couldn't so I called her to do it, the fear and the guilt I felt I can't explain in words. She told me she couldn't go to the place so she had to come home and asked me if I were drinking today cause the house was upside down. I said yes.

T+09:00 She put on a film and then left, we started watching it and everything would just turn into fractal shapes, grains and organic looking things. The faces of the actors where changing expression, shape and colour, all while around the room everything was melting and lighting up in colours, sparks of colours were everywhere. The body load at this point started to get uncomfortable, me and my friend got caught in a conversation loop all while my consciousness and being was slowly going away. That stayed like that for a few hours.

T+13:00 At this point I realised that instead of subsiding the effects got more intense, severe bodily discomfort and with it really introspective and self-destructing thoughts. I was thinking I should just go in my mother's lap and tell her that I am on drugs and that I am very sorry for what a useless and horrible person I am, or that I should call an ambulance. It was unbearable.

T+15:00 I think the peak was here, my consciousness was dissolving, leaving me thinking nonsense words and meaningless ideas all while my body was feeling like dying and getting crushed. The few moments of thought were all horrible, thoughts of suicide, of death. This went on for what felt like an infinity.

T+20:00 Still unbearable but less than before, it was by now I was thinking this was not the same substance. I was thinking this was not bk-2c-b. I've heard stories of people getting bromo-dragonfly instead of 2c-b-fly and losing limbs and lives. When I was looking at my hands and feet I could see my veins popping out and blood moving through them, the tips turning blue *(they weren't of course). The body load was crushing me, all I could think about is I can't wait till this is over, how long can it last. Repeating the same thoughts over and over again for another 4 hours.

T+24:00 It started wearing off, the hallucinations and body load was getting back to a comfortable level. Me and my friend started talking about what happened, I started cleaning the house cause I felt the need to do something since I was very stimulated (sleep wouldn't be possible).

T+26:00 Thinking we were sobering up we decided to go to his place, take some money and go buy some juice. When we went out we realised we were still tripping balls, and it was a very scary experience. We managed to get the things from the shop and came back to my apartment, it's then I realised I was utterly wrecked and sleep wouldn't be possible since I still hallucinate. The trip outside threw us back in an uncomfortable place.

T+26:30 I started walking aimlessly around the room till I decided to go ask a neighbour for some benzos ( she has a prescription) and she gave me four 0,25 alprazolam pills. My friend decided to go home.

T+26:35 I took two pills and tried sleeping. For two hours I lay in bed, pins and needles all around my body, mind melting but I couldn't fall asleep. I woke up and started crying hard, shouting for my girlfriend and that I can't take it anymore, I don't want this anymore (no one was at home by that point my mom going out).

T+28:35 I decide to take the other two pills even though I was fearing they could kill me (no tolerance whatsoever to benzos). I was thinking I don't care if I'm dying as long as this shit ends. In about 20 minutes I fell asleep.

T+38:00 Woke up and checked the clock, it was morning the next day, I slept since the evening. I can't describe how thankful I was I could fall asleep. I checked on my friend and he managed to fall asleep without anything about 2-3 hours after I did.

This was one of the most, if not the most intense trip in my life and I won't be touching this stuff again. I think the reason it felt stronger than all the times I took it was the orange juice since it's acidic (it also came on faster than usual).
