This was my first experience with 4-AcO-MALT, and though it was light enough that I probably wouldn't have even written a report normally, I figured it was worth writing this up given that this is a brand new molecule, with to my knowledge nothing written on it yet. I won't say anything on it too serious just yet since I really know so little about it even after this experience, but will just ask due to this that anyone reading this report take everything written with a grain of salt. There is no telling how one might react to this molecule as of yet... and just because this dose wasn't really high enough for me, that doesn't mean it won't be for somebody. You have been warned.... However, for now, on to the report!
My previous experience with psychedelics includes DMT, MET, MiPT, DiPT, DALT, Psilocybe cubensis, 4-HO-MET, 4-HO-DET, 4-HO-MPT, 4-HO-EPT, 4-HO-DPT, 4-HO-MiPT, 4-HO-DiPT, 4-HO-McPT, 4-AcO-DMT, 4-AcO-MET, 4-AcO-DET, 4-AcO-DALT, 5-HO-DMT, 5-MeO-MiPT, 5-MeO-EiPT, 5-MeO-DALT, Ipomoea tricolor, Argyreia nervosa, LSD, ETH-LAD, AL-LAD, 2C-B, 2C-I, DOC, and MDMA. My most recent trip on a psychedelic was about three weeks before this on 10 mg of 5-MeO-EiPT, and for trips in general I had taken methoxetamine a few times in varying doses in the couple weeks leading up to this.
T+0:00 - 25 mg of 4-AcO-MALT was ingested orally with a drink of water, and chased with a Rice Krispies treat. Immediately afterward I started preparing a bowl of cannabis for the experience, but in the process of unclogging the only bong bowl in the apartment from last night, which also happens to belong to my currently sleeping roommate, I pushed on something the wrong way and accidentally snapped it clean in half. Shit.... Now I feel guilty as my strongest emotion to enter a quickly approaching psychedelic state with, AND I don't have a bong to smoke out of during my trip. Ah, well.... I pulled out one of my old pipes, which I haven't touched in ages and is thick with resin but will do, and loaded a bowl into it for a little bit later.
T+0:15 - About this time I noticed that my body was becoming a bit shaky while coming up on other strong tryptamines, and this is about the time it would happen particularly on those with the most similar structures to this one, so I took it as a good sign and decided to take a hot shower.
T+0:30 - I was drying off and getting dressed around this point, and I was definitely feeling it even more than I had been before getting in the shower. I wasn't quite as shaky now, but I did have a slight sense of euphoria rising and some of the typical changes in the way my body feels while coming up on psychedelics, particularly with regards to feeling both the smooth and tense areas of my body more than normal. I also had a sense of excitement that mostly played out in the shower but still left me in a heightened state, again not unlike coming up on other similar, especially more stimulating tryptamines. Finally, I was also starting to see the walls bend and move a little, along with lighter versions of the Persian rug kind of patterning I often get on these indoles making a slight appearance. However, despite all these factors combining to show me that I was clearly coming up to a significant psychedelic effect, the overall intensity still wasn't that extreme, and I was beginning to suspect that this dose may end up being on the softer end of things.
T+0:45 - I felt that my initial excited rush was officially over at this point, so I decided to put on some music and start smoking my bowl of cannabis. It was nice, though within about ten minutes I got what I wrote down in my notes as a 'random purge urge', which felt basically like the purge I get on base tryptamines where there is no nausea or warning preceding the vomiting, and then after I'm done the feeling vanishes and the trip becomes even better. However, with this particular experience I didn't actually purge, just dry heave, but I did still feel better after the fact.
For the next hour, I didn't do anything at all except hang out in my room, listening to music and smoking cannabis. The trip did indeed level off at a very light place, but it was still a pretty satisfying experience for the level it was at.
The trip did indeed level off at a very light place, but it was still a pretty satisfying experience for the level it was at.
Music sounded good, my body felt good, and my closed eye visuals had increased to the point that, while still mainly abstract, there was quite a lot of color, movement, and repeated lines that reminded me a lot of my experiences on some other tryptamines I've had that seem visually powerful but weak at the dose I took them at, particularly 5-MeO-EiPT and MET. Overall I was really enjoying myself, but it may also be worth noting that part of this could have come from the fact that it was juxtaposed with my exploratory experiences on methoxetamine, and, recently before them, on 2'-Oxo-PCE. While these experiences had been very interesting and powerful from an objective standpoint, one of the most important lessons that they had for me personally is reminding me that I honestly just don't enjoy dissociatives other than nitrous oxide, and generally find them increasingly unpleasant the more often I take them in a short span of time, no matter how objectively interesting they are. On the other hand, I find psychedelics to be the most enjoyable types of drugs I've ever taken personally, and so even this weak effect was enough to highlight just how much I do like these sensations compared to the in many ways directly opposite sensations of dissociatives. Given this, it's possible that my perspective is different than it would be if I had just taken the psychedelic without much of a surrounding context, but with the situation being what it was, I was quite happy with the way I felt.
T+2:00 - Shortly before this point I had heard my roommate emerge from his room, so I finished off the first bowl of cannabis, loaded a second, and headed out of my room to greet him. We ended up talking a little bit in generally just a normal conversational way for us, and I told him I was on something and apologized for having broken his bong bowl, which, to make a long story short while adding some context, was also not the first thing of his I've accidentally broken in the past couple weeks, not even the first cannabis-related thing. To make it up to him, I told him I was going to buy both of us new bongs today (myself one so that I didn't have to keep using his things and risk breaking them again), but that it would have to wait until later unless he was willing to drive us both there. He considered it, but also had some around-the-apartment errands to take care of, so he just kept doing them for the moment, and I went back to listening to music for a while.
T+3:20 - At this point I turned off the music, and started heading up my leftover chicken parmesan and spaghetti from the night before. It was delicious, though it would have been anyway. By the time I finished eating, as is often the case after doing such, I felt that the psychedelic effects had largely started to diminish, though I still could feel it my body a pretty good amount, both the euphoria and the general changes in physical sensation, though as usual it would not seem unlikely to me that this was kept around so long in part with help by the cannabis high. Anyway, after I finished eating I recall feeling that I was about down for the day, and just put Netflix on in the background while thinking about things in my life.
T+5:35 - My roommate finally decided to drive us both to the head shop at this time, and we returned around T+6:00 with two beautiful new bongs, and promptly gave them each a test run. It was pretty fun, and the strong high allowed me to keep feeling good still in a psychedelic way for a bit longer than I would have otherwise, but after that point I cannot recall ever noticing anything significant in this way.
So, that's where my experience ended so far. Again, there's not much to say about it yet because I don't really have much of an idea of its character, but just wanted to get this information out there since this new molecule is floating around. So far, I would say it felt by far the most like a less potent version of 4-HO-MPT, in terms of the visual style, euphoria, headspace, speed of onset, and overall duration, but given their extreme structural similarities this really wasn't much of a surprise. The potency kind of was though, since 4-HO-MPT is highly active at 25 mg for me and possibly more impressive than any other 4-substituted tryptamine at that dose, but it is what it is, and I'll gladly take a higher dose next time to try to get fuller effects. I have a good opportunity to trip alone in a big house coming up a couple weeks, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to take 50 mg and try to see what this one is really all about.
But, until then, please stay safe my fellow travelers and experimenters!
