After my first experience eating 25mg of 2CT7 and having minimal effects my girlfreind and I decided to try smoking it.
We used a method referred to as chasing the dragon. That is placing a small amount of powder (~1mg with 2CT7) on tin foil, heating it with a flame from beneath (do not light the flame until ready to inhale b/c 2CT7 evaporates very fast) and using a half cut off 20oz plastic bottle to inhale the evaporated smoke with.
Although this is the method we used I have since learned that chemicals on the tin foil evapoate as well making the experience less than good for you. I would recommend using the light bulb method, or an evaparater. I also think the tin foil had a lot to do with the toxic, dirty effect we got.
T + 0:00 I smoke about 2-3mg for the first try not knowing how much smoke it would create. Most of it I was unable to inhale and therefore was wasted. I immediately notice the effects. Everything in my perception, especially my visual field, is much more pronounced. Having had intensley bad experinces with acid, i begin to get nervous, wondering if it is so intense already where ic ould be headed. However, there is was no need to worry, from what I have learned of 2CT7 (from personal experience) it seems very benign to me.
T + 0:10 We went for a walk to cool my nerves. This worked very well, I realize there was no need to worry, I'm not going anywhere I don't want to go. I am definately having visuals, this worked much better than ingesting. I only used 2-3mg versus 25! And it is working much better. ALthough, I must admit smoking this stuff is not something I want to do often. I immediately felt a headache, and my lungs were not happy with me when I inhaled the smoke. Could this be the tin foil? or just the 2CT7?
T + 1:00 Having been tripping fairly steadily. Prevalent visuals, although not extremely intense, noting like I expected from reading the user reports. We smoke more, this time only using about 1mg per hit. I smoke two or three hits. I am definately tripping harder now, my headache although worse from smoking more seems to be more in the background.
T + 1:30 Wow, this stuff is much more easy on the ego than acid. At no point in time did I feel my world being beaten or crushed or even severly distored. Its more like I have been given another perspective on things, ont that I like much. I do not find this nearly as creativity inspiring as LSD either. Not that this is neccessarily a bad thing. I would just recommend it be used in a different way, I am much more mentally clear than acid.
T + 2:30 I have noticed that although I smoke more the effects will only reach a certain level. A friend who has smoked a lot of meth tells me that after a certain point smoking more doesn't have much effect. I wonder why? Maybe your lungs can only absorb so much? Maybe they close off to the foreign substance somehow? Any which way I am convinced that I can not have an experince much more intense by smoking.
T + 4:20 Coming down now a fair amount, we are considering going to bed. I get talked into taking a hit from the bong. Wow! Pot with this stuff is wild! I'm not sure how I can describe it. Sort of like DXM. I feel very far away and things are certainly distorted in a way they have not been all night. I don't really in contact with anything but my thoughts. I hate pot. If it weren't for the mind dulling effects of pot I think the 2CT7 & pot combo could really be a duo. It is worthwhile to note here that I am a person who is extremely sensitive to pot, and don't smoke it frequently. Someone with a substanstial tolerance may not find the combo as explosive. ALthough, a freind of mine who smokes daily is convinced that the pot took his trip somewhere he wouldn't have gone otherwise.
Concluding comments: Although smoking is worth further experiment, i will not again do it with tin foil. Hopefully this will reduce the toxic effects. I also think a combo of eating & smoking may work best. I have attempted this once and it has been my best experince by far. I intend to do a report of it soon, so keep your eyes open. =)
