Long Beautiful Stimulating

T+ 0:00
50 mg rectal 4-HO-MET (capsule)
  T+ 10:00 600 mg oral Acetaminophen (pill / tablet)
  T+ 10:00 15 mg oral Codeine (pill / tablet)
So to start this off this was quite the experience. I have done a handful of other psychedelic substances in the past; mushrooms, 5-MeO-MiPT, LSA, ayahuasca, yopo, salvia and dissociates. This experience was comparable to over 7g mushrooms (highest I have done) or almost ayahuasca like in nature but different visuals, longer duration and maybe more intense.

2 days ago I first try 20mg of 4-HO-MET orally and was not really impressed by the effects I had. I had some nice visuals for about an hour with residual effects for following 3 hours sleeping in 5. Thought that just being 2 days after trying 4-HO-MET I would have tolerance and wanted quite a bit bigger of a trip. I didn't have much to research, with only 120mg. Using 20mg the previous day only 100mg left. Decided to go with 50mg to leave for 1 more big trip if it was successful.

So I was not impressed by the effects and heard boofing would have more of an effect than oral so decided to go that route although have never done before. Loaded up a gel cap and just went for it. Not pleasant.

The Trip

T-0:00 - 7:40pm - Got the deed done. Just took 50mg of 4-HO-MET.

T-0:40 - I was kind of worried that nothing was going to happen due to tolerance because I wasnt feeling anything yet.

T-1:20 - I was starting to feel it. Started out very much like the previous night. Thinking about things in a different way. Visuals already starting to breathe and move.

T-2:00 - I am full on hallucinating right now or starting to. The rug has intricate Mayan glyphs walking flipping back and forth from lizards. Snakes spiraling all around my computer screen in intricate colors and to think the experience was JUST beginning.

T-2:30 - I know at some point I have quite a bit stomach discomfort that lasted for the entirety of the trip once it started. My hands and feet also became very warm and clammy much like high dose mushroom trip. Text on my screen is barely legible with it twisting and warping. Looking beside me the couches were multi-colored in fashion moving back and forth from the wall, up and down.

T-3:00 to T-5:00 - During this time it was somewhat of a blur. The visuals were so beautiful, vivid and awe inspiring. At some point around now and T-5:00 had thoughts about ideas intelligent design and how awe inspiring this experience was. There was a point where I thought this was more amazing than ayahuasca but slightly different visuals less intelligent feeling different type of stimulating. Yet later into the trip it became ayahuasca type stimulating and just as exhausting.

T-5:00 to T-7:00 - I am still tripping pretty hard during this time.
T-5:00 to T-7:00 - I am still tripping pretty hard during this time.
Still feels like more than the 20mgs I took... I feel like I am overly stimulated. Everything is still moving and morphing around me. Stomach is really starting to hurt. Hands and feet feel like they are burning as I feel overly stimulated.

T-7:00 - I eat something. Feel a bit better yet stomach still hurts. Decide to go lay down in bed to see if I can sleep although I am still seeing fractals, some colors and objects.

T-9:00 - Visuals are dying down.

T-10:00 - 2 T1's to maybe help sleep.

Still up for 1-2 hours with light visuals. Finally fall asleep for 2-3 hours.

Woke up this morning still seeing movement and tracers quite a bit. In total this was almost a 12 hour trip. There were points when I was getting tired of tripping 3-4 hours into the experience when it was still going to last another 4 at least with another 4 hours before I could fall asleep. There were times when I though effects should be subsiding but weren't. I dont think I had an experience that lasted so long as did this one. I dont know if I will do a dose of 4-HO-MET this high again because there was quite a bit of stomach discomfort. Orally is definitely not the best way to take this substance to get the most out of it. I can also see how people say 4-HO-MET isnt that 'deep' because the visuals are way over the top in a constant sea of awe inspiring speed and flow; there is no way you can capture every moment. No words can describe all the things that passed though my consciousness that night.


I would not suggest anyone take this high of a dose unless this is the type of experience you are looking for. I suppose I was looking for an experience that was comparable to my previous experience with mushrooms and ayahuasca over 10 years ago and got what I was looking for plus bit more than bargained for.
