Straight out of class with Fall Break upon me, I decided to give 4-ace-det another go. Having tasted the material at the 15mg level with positive albeit mild results, I allowed some indulgence and opted for the 25mg dose. Mixing the material in orange juice, it went down with virtually no taste. First alerts were felt in 10 minutes as a sort of transitional confusion, quickly moving into a a fairly sensual and relaxed psychedelic state. The brevity of this experience makes it somewhat difficult to comment upon, but it seems to be much softer/smoother than the diisopropylated tryptamines (5-meo-dipt, 4-ace-dipt). The frequent comparison to psilocybin holds some merit, but 4-ace-det seems to act on the nervous system more as a stimulant. As such, 4-ace-det lacks the depth of psilocybin, and thus lacks the darker dimensions of the psilocybin experience.
This in mind, I must emphasize that the 'darker dimensions' of psilocybin tend to be the most profound when attended to appropriately. At 25mg 4-ace-det, body image seemed most heavily affected, though in a subtle way. Furthermore, I gained some insight into the general pattern, or learned tendency, I have in using psychedelics as relates to personal health. As a result, there has been a shift in the way I consider psychedelics as part of a larger aspiration towards healthy living. This shift has largely manifested as a generally more wholesome and relaxed body image, though these changes do tend to change :). One thing of note, after the majority of the primary 4-ace-det effects passed (4hours), I slipped into a sort of exhausted/tired/content state not unlike melatonin. This mental fogginess persisted for a couple days afterwards, but nothing too major in terms of hangover. All considered, I would conjecture that this material might have some use in treating body-image issues where the darker aspects of the psilocybin experience are undesirable.
