This being my second experiment with AMT, I have planned on doubling the dose. While I did vomit about 2 hours into the last experiment, I believe I might know how to prevent that this time around. Namely: drinking lots of water and smoking a little weed. We shall see.
A little background: I have taken LSD well over a hundred times, as well as shrooms and mescaline more than a few dozen, and E about a dozen or more. I was a habitual MJ user (once a day or more) for approximately 9 years up until my current sojourn in this place I live now. With psychedelic substances, I consider myself more of an explorer than a recreational user. This means that something of practical use must emerge for me to regard the experience as a success.
I ingested a solution containing approximately 100-120mg of AMT dissolved in ethanol on an empty stomach at 12:33pm. Hopefully this will deliver the compound into my system as fast as possible. [unfortunately I did not have access to tools which could make exact measurements this tiny] After ingesting the solution, I made an effort to slowly drink a good deal of water to prompt flushing of wastes through urine. This is a record of events as they happened.
T+30min - Well, so much for not puking!! Nausea came on quick this time - there was no option, although the vomit was not worse than a normal vomit, especially since it was mostly water. I was on the second puff from a nice bowl and it struck like lightning. Hopefully the AMT was absorbed - and from the effects I seem to already be feeling, it has. I have a massive body buzz.
T+1hr30min - I puked a second time about 10 min after the last report. Afterwards I felt strong somehow - positive that nausea would not return. At this point I am 'tripping balls' as we used to say (and still do). This is definately no lesser psychedelic - although so far the body buzz clearly predominates over the mental stuff (which is still pleasantly there). I would liken this to halfway between LSD and MDMA on my personal subjective spectrum. And I have apparently taken a strong dose. Very pleasurable so far (aside from the hated puke sessions - always a con in my book), although there is a significant amount of desire for jaw clenching. I am finding that totally relaxing (especially face muscles) almost completely gets rid of it. Visuals are apparent yet subtle, but then again it is daylight all around me.
T+2hr - Damn I feel REALLY good. Bodily, emotionally, mentally - and strangely enough I am objective enough to know it is all drug induced. Yet that is cool - humor is in no lack at all. I am probably going to smoke some weed and go for a walk outside now.
T+3hr - no walk happened, got distracted by music and funky insights then I started having the classic 100% elightenment experience - I am still in rapture at this moment. The drug has a bodily presence but seems greatly minimized by the fact that I have no food in me and just water as beverage. In essence, though - it is only a by-product of what is happening RIGHT NOW. That takes immediate precedence, of course! I feel suffused with pure love.
T+6hr(??) - Time has lost meaning. Im still going strong and I feel like its been generations since I last reported. Had a nice bowl just now - mellowed things out a bit. I have no clue why this shit is legal but I bet someone does. I dont think I understand the weird intricacies and hyprocrasies of the whole drug war. What a stupid game!!
T+11hr - Coming down now. I think the water helped immensely because my body doesn't feel 1/2 as bad as the first time I took AMT (which was at 1/2 the dosage I took today). Of course I also took a Vitamin C pill earlier as well. Even though I know I'm on the downward from here, I am still very much feeling the effects. A wonderful experience all in all. I guess a puke won't stand in my way of trying this stuff again. Although its good to keep in mind you shouldn't be throwing up all the time - very bad for the teeth. This trip was mostly spiritual and emotional - and I am still in such a damn good mood! There were deep, cosmic insights but they were all delivered from within love. Now I am surrounded by it. I know it sounds stupid, but I am fairly certain I can draw upon this experience for support in the future. Clearly a 'teacher' drug - and a very benevolent one at that. I am not in the least bit tired yet.
2 days later - Well, the day after was not nearly as bad as the first time - in fact I felt fine if a bit lazy. I am still happy (in a normal sort of way), and it feels like a legacy effect of the good time I had on AMT. It was a refreshing lift above the doldrums of day to day life, very much like a tropical vacation (of the mind). Much more so than the first time I took it (at 1/2 this dosage), I found that the spiritual and 'cosmic' aspects were the main course - with all the body ecstacies and emotional euphorias featured more as highlights. Visuals were subtle throughout, although they were clearly present. I must reiterate that keeping a clean system throughout the experience by drinking only water or juice, (and supplemented by a Vitamin C tablet) completely negated any negative physical side effects (except the jaw clenching and a headache which was relieved by aspirin).
