First Time Low Dose AL-LAD - Benchmarking
blotters 150 mcgs each
Prep: Good night's sleep, no alcohol or substances night before. Decent sized health breakfast early in day and then small light lunch before the trip. Good assessment of mindsets of both subjects. Good state. Cleared diary for that day and following days. Selected day with excellent sunny weather forecast.
Location empty 3 bed house with private garden area and outdoor sofas as well as indoor big lounge, darkened with good sound system and large tv with you tube psychedelic visuals. 5 mins walk to big expansive park and nature reserve with old ruins and yet to be fully explored by the subjects but with some basic knowledge.
Trip started at home then after 1 hr walked to park with pack of supplies and blanket - stayed out till 6pm ish. Sunscreen, water and food supplies essential. Few amyl nitrate sniffs and nitrous balloons used throughout to enhance the experience as dose and AL-LAD effect were lower than ideally wanted.
Subject B = 75 mcgs (half blotter)
Subject M = 112.5 mcgs (3/4 blotter)
Taken buccally - under tongue and chewed for 10 - 15mins then swallowed when disintegrated. This dose was set as deliberately low, as an initial benchmarking for new chemical, one new psychonaut, and totally new supplier.
Typically subject B in past would take 2-3 grams magic truffles (Aliens or Hollandia) for level 1 type trips. Or 50 - 100 mcgs 1p-lsd for level 2 or level 3 trips (respectively). Experience: Mushrooms or truffles 10-15 times but mostly at low doses in raves, 1p-lsd twice, mdma - very many times.
start - 12.50pm
peak - 2.30pm
end - 7.30pm
sleep -10.30pm - Slept quickly and easily at 10.30pm through till morning. Some vivid dreams. Next day slow ish start then felt refreshed and lots of energy all day and good levels of creativity. Little or no mental impairment.
Verdict - A little too weak and not enough visuals - just about a level 1 trip - but fun - absolutely no negative aspects at all to the whole day. Some body load and stoned effects. Trouble walking and inebriation at peak. Many fits of laughter. More like mushrooms than 1p-lsd. But much longer effect than mushrooms as has long reducing tapering off of effects in the second half of the trip.
At peak patterns and colour movement, some raised and flowing textures of anything patterned.
Good chemical but need much higher dose - perhaps double and then onto triple in later trips.
Almost no introspection though, or drifting thoughts like 1p-lsd. So could be purely visual certainly at these lower doses. No mental aspect. This could be considered a benefit or a disadvantage. By comparison 50 mcgs 1p-lsd sent subject B tripping for 6-8 hrs with effects easily lasting 12 hrs - with many mental 'trips' of imagination on random thought streams.
