From Eye-Candy to Mindfuck
2C-E & 2C-B
Citation:   French pig. "From Eye-Candy to Mindfuck: An Experience with 2C-E & 2C-B (exp110520)". Oct 21, 2020.

T+ 0:00
5 mg oral 2C-B (capsule)
  T+ 0:00 9 mg oral 2C-E (capsule)
  T+ 7:00 1.5 mg oral Bromazepam  
  T+ 7:00 1.9 mg oral Melatonin  
The objective was to try the 2C-E and add a bit of 2C-B for the 'fun aspect' because the 2C-E is known to be a bit 'cold'. Everything is reagent tested, potent and bought from reliable sources.

- T + 0h00 It's 11am after a long day of work, no work tomorow so I can spend the night doing what I want, I eat the capsule with 5mg 2C-B and 9mg 2C-E.

- T + 2h00 It's been 2 hours already and I only start to feel little 2C-B effects, comparable to the 5mg, no headspace at all, just a little bit off, this goes for about an hour and I am tired of waiting honestly.

- T + 3h30 I start to feel the effects of the 2C-E, it's my first time and I find the come-up a bit agressive for only 9mg, but I'm holding it pretty well, expecting nausea and vomiting but it will never happen.

- T + 4h00 I now experience what I think are the full effects of the 2C-E but also the 5mg 2C-B euphoria. I have way more OEV's than with 42mg 2C-B. I remember describing it as some 'eye candy' because the trip is 99% visual, no headspace at all, I can think cristal clear and contemplate my new super vision, pretty colors and shades. Everything is moving, breathing and I just look by my window and discover that I'm able to see the starts perfectly even if there are a lot of lights around me (probably because of the intense mydriasis). I get some music and incense (some benzoin, my fav) and the sound is amazing and speaking to me. I look at the sky turning from purple to deep black to a dark orange and tell to myself it's pretty intense for only 9mg.

- T + 5h00 I come back on my computer and the second part of the trip is setting up slowly. In fact, I start to be a bit tired and I realise the 2C-B effects are starting to fade. Pretty soon the euphoria is not existent anymore and sudently the little headspace from the 5mg 2C-B is transforming to something way more powerfull than what I experienced with 42mg. It sure is the 2C-E headspace, 5 hours after the intake, that is hitting my mind like a brick. I'm quickly overwhelmed and the headspace is really intense. It's not comparable to 2C-B where I'm able to control the trip and my mind and the way I think, no. Instead I'm just in my bed, eyes open and my mind invents crazy stories about everything, and nothing has sence at all, absolutelly nothing has any sence, it's a giant mindfuck that is close to dreams but my eyes are open. Thing is I am not stressed or anything, I'm just amazed by what's happening, what my brain is able to generate. The amount of visual 'filters' my brain is able to process. One second I see in mosaic, the very next second I close my eyes and everything is in shade of dark blue and black, a bit pixellated, then it's in some kind of 3D effect...

- T + 6h30 But the mind fuck is not stable, it's increasing instead and soon I'm speaking arab and italian with someone, all in my head, and I understand everything, the next second I realise the 1 hour Neurofunk mix has ended for 15 good minutes now and I 'open eye dreamed' for about 30 minutes of nonsense and I'm experiencing that neither positively or negatively. I'm just tired and having strong hallucinations and a decent mindfuck that is starting to bother me. No euphoria and no real introspection about my life, my behavior or regular thought I can usually dig with other psychedelics is not here at all so I start to wonder if I should kill the trip with 1.5mg of Bromazepam but I decide that I will find something interesting to do instead.

- T + 7h00 I've now been awake for 24 hours and I start to feel really tired, physically and mentally.

I put some music on my speakers and jump into my bed. About 15 minutes later, I realise I'm not even feeling the music at all, or just listening, I'm not bothered by it so I decide to try something else. I switch on the light and realise most of the OEV's are gone, but my mind... my mind is in a mess, a real mess. Very trippy and unable to control, it's not a bad trip at all, it's just like I'm in a dream which is in a dream and so on. I wake up from a mindfuck story I invented that I transformed into a table then I realise I'm on the beach with my familly then I have a huge leg spasm and I'm in my bed again. At this moment I decide to do what I really did not want to do, I take the 1.5mg Bromazepam and 1.9mg Melatonin and go to sleep.

- T + 7h30 The Bromazepan and Melatonin are doing their jobs, my eyes are shutting down hard (the tiredness is helping certainly) and the comedown caused by the bromazepam is somehow violent. I did not expect a come back to the normal world this fast, my OEV's disapeared in less than 5 minutes, 10 minutes for the CEV's (which usually last almost a whole day after for 2C-B!) and the mindfuck slowly fades off and I can think (hardly) again. I still tried to stay awake a few minutes before sleeping because I think it's really important not to fall asleep while tripping. It's important to make a small point about the trip, think about it to assimilate what you experienced. 10 minutes later I'm sleeping hard.

The next day I'm perfectly fine, no headache, I could just tell that something happened with my brain the day before but was still able to concentrate well with no issues at all.

Moral of the story:

- Never try 2C-E this late and if you are tired, this is probably the main reason why this mindfuck was this 'fucky'.

- 2C-E with 2C-B works wonder but the 2C-B takes effects faster and last shorter so take the 2C-E, wait 30-60 minutes then take the 2C-B.

- There is no potency increase by mixing 2C-B and 2C-E together, you just get what you expect to have.

- It seems the 2C-E headspace takes longer to set place, like if it was waiting the 2C-B headspace to wear off, might be wrong but I find it mysterious the headspace took 5+ hours to come.

- Obviously, since some effects seem to take 5 hours to kick, don't redose 2C-E thinking you did not take enough. I know some people who would have tried to redose 2 or 3 times in those 5 hours, just imagine how fucked they would be.
