Things about me:
I have a few psychedelic experiences under the buckle, done shrooms once, LSD once before, and changa a few times. Smoked a lot of weed, done some phenibut, and other minor things, so I am not the most experienced psychonaut, but I would classify me, as at least a little experienced. This trip was easily the most intense and challenging I have ever experienced.
Characters: Me, M, M's gf, and A.
It was a saturday night, and we were all hanging out a friend (M)'s house. A and I decided we wanted to trip a little, M couldn't cause he was picking up his girl later. M had some 150µg acid blotters laying around, but we had to get up in the morning so we did half a blotter each. After about an hour the acid had pretty much kicked fully in, and we were feeling nice and peaceful. Not any hallucinations atm, which was to expect. M left to get his gf, and we hung out and packed the pipe. We smoked the weed, and it potentiated the LSD a little bit, close to a hallucinatory extent but still not very intense, this was fine though, everything was going as planned.
After about T+1:30 we remembered M still had some changa lying around. We have smoked it a few times before, and it has led to about 15-20 minutes of some pretty intense shit, so we thought “hey let’s trip a little bit of balls and party on afterwards”... Oh boy was that a bad (good) idea. I put a few grains of the changa in the pipe, just enough to get a sober man, seeing some weird shit and think some thoughts, we agreed that it was probably about 0.02g. I lit up the pipe, and got a little disappointed when the effects didn’t kick in immediately like I’m used to. I didn’t redose though, as I was pretty sure it would kick in eventually and I was right. About 15 minutes after I smoke the changa I notice the floor starts slanting. Anywhere I look, the floor slanting upwards in an about 20 degree angle. That is where I notice “oh fuck guys I’m tripping balls!”
My friend takes me by the hand and says “dude you gotta look yourself in the mirror”. We often do this while tripping. As I look at my face I start giggling. The giggling turns into uncontrollable laughter, as my face begins looking unfamiliar and gets a red glow. The red intensifies, as the face in the mirror turns into a red siluet. Then suddenly *poof*. I’m back and I’m looking at my own face of amazement in the mirror. Or at least some colors and shapes resembling my face.
At this point I am walking surprisingly well. My friend told me it was impossible to see I was tripping, until I looked at him or opened my mouth. My sight was very weird. Kind of like looking through something that isn’t quite transparent. Nothing feels real, it feels like the world is seen through a tv screen. Sometimes I wasn’t sure if I could grab things, it felt like my hands would just hit the screen or something. The world is still slanting and everything is still shapes and colors. It was kind of scary at times, and hard to keep a good mood. It was fun but challenging.
Suddenly I think “I’ll play some guitar I must be super creative right now”. When I pick up the guitar, and look at the strings, they surprisingly look pretty familiar. When I try to put my fingers on them though, they start twisting, and avoiding me. Sometimes, a 7th string would appear and just screw with me, so I gave up. Fuck that guitar, if it wouldn’t let me play it, then I wouldn’t try.
I was told that after this, the others went outside, and I followed them pretty normally. The next thing I remember is suddenly standing outside and going “Wow shit! We’re outside!” and everyone starts laughing. This was kind of scary, and this “teleportation” happened a couple of times, but I (fascinatingly) didn’t bad trip.
The next few hours were pretty uneventful (I think they were very eventful, but not much to talk about) and at about T+5 I go to bed. At this point I still have pretty good visual hallucinations. As earlier mentioned the changa should have lasted about 20 minutes. This was about 4 hours later, and I was still tripping! While I lay in my bed, I have “while my guitar gently weeps” in my head and it keeps on playing. Not as you would normally have an annoying song in your head, I could literally hear it. This was a problem I had encountered earlier in the evening, and sometimes it had been louder than the people speaking to me which was really annoying, but not as annoying as this. I got up 3 times to turn off the music, only to realise that there was no music playing and it was all in my head.
I used some pretty low doses, and I thank god for being careful, cause if this was a friday evening, and I didn’t have to get up in the morning, I could easily have doubled the dose. This would 100% have resulted in a bad trip. It was a very challenging trip, especially because of the duration. Changa should last about 20 minutes or so, but it lasted about 2-3 hours with very high intensity, before I even noticed it starting to wear off.
The next morning, I was surprisingly fresh and sane. That being said I could easily feel that I was a little slow, but I felt more normal than I feel like I should.
