I’m a twenty five year old molecular biology master’s candidate who has been experimenting with psychedelic substances since the age of 16. Most of my experience with drugs when I was younger has included Marijuana use from around the same age, a solid couple of years in the rave scene using MDMA in pressed tablet form only, small amounts of ketamine, a few mushroom trips and benzo use. Once entering college my drug use was limited almost solely to marijuana. Over the past 4 years or so I have been turned back on to recreational drug use with my first LSD experience. I have since become heavily involved in the jam band/ electronic music scene. With maturity have come experience with a vast variety of chemicals (LSD, 2CB, DOC, DMT, MDA, MDMA (pure), Mushrooms, Cocaine, Heroine, Opium, and a variety of pharmaceutical drugs) as well as a better connection for substances of high quality, and my interest in synergy of certain compounds.
My drugs of choice are psychedelics, LSD being my favorite and followed closely by mushrooms and MDx(x) compounds. Last night I decided after some research to try a new cocktail of sorts. After drinking a relatively large amount of alcohol over the course of a few hours I decided to ingest a small amount of mushrooms, around 1 gram (10pm).
At about the 40 min mark I began to feel the mushrooms and instigated the second part of my cocktail, two small bumps of very strong and pure MDA powder/crystals, I estimate the dose to have been around 75mg. At 1 hour and 20 mins post ingestion of the mushrooms they are coming on very strong along with the gradual come up of the MDA. At this point I smoked around .5 grams of very high quality marijuana; the exhale of that bong rip was a magical thing.
This is where the trip becomes extremely enjoyable. With this amount of either drug I personally only have threshold effects; however the two in combination to me seemed to be very synergistic one pushing the other. The visual aspect of the small amount of mushrooms was greatly enhanced, turning the usually very organic visuals to something different more like an LSD trip. The body load associated with both drugs was also different it seemed more warm and comfortable than usual, and my overall mood lift was incredible.
At around 2.5 hours of my mushroom injestion I retreated from my living room to my bedroom were my girlfriend had laid down much earlier. I put on soma ambient music and prepared for the final component of my experience, Ketamine that I procured myself from a sealed vial. To me ketamine used alone is almost to disorienting and almost not enjoyable, but I have found through experimentation that using it while under the influence of a psychedelic it is a much better more profound experience.
Since this was my first experiment with these three chemicals together I dosed the ketamine out at a lower level than normal 60mg at most. I insufflated the line all at once and turned off the lights and layed next to my asleep girlfriend on the bed. The only light in the room at this point is the soft glow of my computer monitor. Slowly I feel the ketamine take effect the first feelings of sinking through the bed, my mind slowly drifting to another place and an amazing sense of well being not usually experienced by me on this drug.
This is the point were this drug experience became truly special, the visionary field my mind was able to create cannot be described in words, I was free to move about my environment without moving at all with the music totally dictating my psychological environment. I believe these three drugs used in small amounts, together over a specific time line created one of the most enjoyable experiences of my drug use and I look forward to re creating this experience again.
The effects from the ketamine wore off at around the one hour mark; at this point the entire experience has taken place over the course of around 5 hours. Back completely at baseline I smoked another bowl of marijuana, followed by 2 tenths of a gram of opium to aid in sleeping as the effects of the MDA have me relatively wide awake at 3am. I can’t remember this opium ever tasting so good or feeling so good at the same dose. Around 30 mins. after consuming the opium and marijuana it is evident to me that they will not do the trick in slowing down my mind, so I ingested 1.5mg xanax (bar) and surfed the web till I felt the effect.
At this point I returned to bed with my girlfriend and drifted peacefully to sleep, while mentally reviewing the experience I had had over the course of the evening. One thing that stuck out during the last phase of this experience was the fact of some issues I had been dealing with in my academic life popping into my head at the peak of the ketamine experience. I was able to isolate the ideas almost visually in my psyche, and was able to “push them away”, almost felling like those pressers had been completely lifted away taken off my mind in a way. When I awoke the next morning I had an overall sense of well being that almost instilled my confidence to defeat these issues and get over them, realizing how small of a deal they actually are. Mind over matter has never felt like a truer statement to me.
