This trip report is shorter and less formal than the majority of reports that I write, but this is because I was deliberately in a mood to not take notes during this experience and originally did not intend to write about it at all, but the experience was interesting enough that it changed my mind. This is what I had to say about the experience when I typed it up, specifically for a forum post rather than as a report.
My previous experience with psychedelics includes DMT, MET, MPT, 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-MALT, 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 was a little under two weeks before this on 35 mg of 4-HO-MiPT.
Earlier this week I tried MET for the fourth time. Previously I had smoked it at 20, 30, and 35 mg, all to varying degrees of relatively threshold effect. This time I decided to go all in and smoke 50 mg, a dosage that someone else I had shared with had already claimed gave them a powerfully hallucinogenic and euphoric experience lasting over an hour. Lately I have been in the mood of trying to simply enjoy my trips without monitoring so much after a long period of writing in-depth reports for basically every one of my experiences

, so I really wasn't keeping notes like that or anything for this trip either, and unfortunately it had a fairly strong amnesiac effect for me too, but this is what I can recall of the experience right now....
I smoked the 50 mg of MET layered between cannabis in a bong while leaning back in my recliner in my living room; I want to say it only took me two hits to finish everything off that I had loaded, but it's hard to recall now and I may have taken a third at least for good measure. I was perfectly comfortable to finish taking my hits fully and calmly place the bong down on the table next to me, though there was indeed a sense of urgency near the end as the effects were quickly appearing in a very DMT-like way.
As I still had the bong in my hands I could see the world with eyes open beginning to transform, large streaks of rainbow neon lights bursting through the seams of reality into the room around me, flashes of illuminated geometry arranged into some kind of alien carnival design, and a subtle distortion rippling over my entire field of vision as a dim, transparent vine-style mandala pattern played with my vision from behind and started incorporating increasingly complex maze designs into its textures. The visuals overall had an artistic design that resembled 4-HO-MET much more than either DMT or psilocin would for me, particularly in terms of their hedonistic and wide-reaching color patterns and noticeably technological designs, but notably they were still more like these two natural tryptamines overall than like 4-HO-MET for me, in the sense that MET, DMT, and psilocin for me all seem to produce their visual experiences by creating extremely complex but subtle and transparent patterns that slowly build up to the point of being fully overwhelming as the trips become really intense. Whereas with 4-HO-MET, I find the open eye visuals that first appear to be of relatively lower complexity but almost completely opaque, extremely vibrant and sharp in a way that makes them especially nice for recreational trips aimed at getting visuals. On the other hand, the MET visuals felt better suited to me for going deep, at least compared to 4-HO-MET.
Shortly after I had set the bong down and had started seeing all these open eye visual effects unfold, I closed my eyes as I generally would for the peak when smoking DMT. This is the part that is hardest for me to remember now unfortunately, but what I do recall is pretty significant.... Primarily, where I found myself was in a sort of transforming, extending-out-in-all-directions infinite hallway which I also experience regularly on DMT, where the hallways are comprised of human or humanoid hallucinations arranged in various poses extending back away from me, and as they shift poses and behaviors the hallways completely rearrange themselves, and in addition, with the strongest version of this effect that I have experienced on DMT there is a sort of synesthesia that accompanies the experience, one where I can feel my body merging into and becoming these transforming hallucinations, usually with an erotic vibe. This was happening this time on the MET as well. The difference is that when DMT does this for me the trip is extremely intense in pretty much all ways, already a total sensory overload and really emotional experience for me, which makes this incredible and hedonistic experience mostly just a cool afterthought for me lost in the madness of everything else going on, whereas on this MET experience the visuals were as I said very powerful but still not yet overwhelming on the level of DMT's for the same trip, and the headspace was almost completely lucid and calm other than the feeling of extreme intensity. These things together caused the erotic synesthesia to completely dominate the experience as a whole, as I saw beautiful female entities drift past me while reaching out to me and rip my sense of self apart in the most bizarre and blissful ways without any distraction. The experience was so intense that at the heaviest point I felt that I was almost pushed to a spontaneous orgasm, but I didn't quite make it.
Once I had reached that point I got about as satisfied as I felt I was going to get from it, I opened my eyes again and scanned the room, and shortly after quickly moved to my bedroom to lie down. The visuals with open eyes were still more subtle than 4-HO-MET, but still very powerful nonetheless and definitely more complex than that, with my room still pulsing and twisting and shining in all kinds of brilliant neon color patterns to the point that my body was starting to shake a bit just from the sensory overload. I was a bit too heavy to do much with it still at first, but I think about twenty to twenty five minutes after dosing got a sudden rush of energy as I normally do, so I got up and enjoyed dancing to a few songs while I could, though this was late at night and I was still quite tired. After I wore myself out I sat down and started reflect on life and my recent behaviors while enjoying the slowly dwindling visuals and body high until I was completely down about two hours after starting.
Overall, I loved this experience, though I wish I could remember more of it in detail. Future experiences will help with that I'm sure.... For now, I'll just say that it definitely feels a lot like DMT to me but more easygoing, orgasmic, and filled with bright neon colors similarly to how 4-HO-MET is compared to psilocin for me. I would even say that this trip furthered an earlier instinct I had that some qualities of MET could superficially be compared to a DOx chemical much like I often feel 4-HO-MET has some superficial similarities to a 2C-x chemical, though again with less focus as I still find MET to focus more on the DMT-like qualities overall.
It's not as powerful of a trip in general as DMT for me so far but it is a very similar trip that is more recreational and long-lasting, so that alone makes it definitely very interesting in my book, and I am now highly interested to see what else it will be able to show me with more trials and higher dosages.
However... that's all I've got for now. :)
