I’ve been taking psychedelics for years and love them almost as much as they intrigue me. I normally prefer the shorter acting compounds. List of psychedelics I’ve taken follows: Psilocybe Mushrooms, DMT, DPT [http://www.erowid.org/experiences/exp.php?ID=79766
43], 5-meo-dmt, 4-aco-dmt, 2c-b, 2c-c, 2c-e, 2c-I, 2c-t-2, San Pedro Cactus Tea [1 threshold dose], LSD [less than 10 times], LSA, Salvia divinorum, Cannabis/Hashish, DXM, Ketamine, mda, mdma, bk-mdma, 4-mmc. I was dependant upon oxycodone for 6 months [well over a year ago], and was taking prescribed stimulants for ADHD in my mid teen years.
Set: Mid October. My friend’s house…which is a rented mansion filled with a bunch of my close friends.
Mindset: Less than perfect…I’d been arguing with my girlfriend earlier in the day and had been doing ketamine most of the day.
I’d been arguing with my girlfriend earlier in the day and had been doing ketamine most of the day.
I bought a new bong [I don’t smoke much weed, and since I was also on ketamine the effects of both were amplified]. So I was stoned/k’d to the point of hallucinating in the early afternoon.
Had been doing ketamine most of the day, split a blotter with my friend...she had tripped the night before, and was a bit more enthusiastic than I was.
Starting to trip a little, but it's mild...someone told me that he thinks the acid might of degraded a bit [everybody else said it was REALLY good still]. I do a bit more ket with some friends and listen to close to the edge.
My friend runs off and does her own thing for a while and a bunch of my other friends are on a candy flip [Lsd+mdma], and most of us were doing ketamine as well. I decided a half wasn't enough [it really was though] so I buy another...no one wants to split it with me, so I eat the whole thing [fffuuuccckkk].
I do some more K, kick it with my friends, and realize I'm having the fucking time of my life. It's been something like 2 years since I've taken a full dose of lsd, and I'm loving it..this is when things start to get hazy...
Weird time line...most of the time lsd comes on all the way for me within an hour or so, but I'm finally starting to actually peak. My visuals are mild blowing. Patterns in everything. Intense fractals. I start to get a bit wound up because I'm coming down off of the K, so I do some more. As I go into the bathroom, I realize that I am FUCKING GONE. I feel like the whole experience is a dmt vision and I could come out of it any minute. I talk to my girlfriend [we had been arguing earlier] and she's not too happy about all of the k I've been doing lately, so she's pretty pissed about the fact that I decided to drop acid on a whim.
I talk to my friend and she is FUCKING GONE off of half a hit. My other friend [he does a lot of acid and had already dosed like 3 times that day and is on about hour 16] and he tells me that on 2 of these blotters he felt like he tripped harder than on 6 a week earlier.. I think it's weird. Another friend [he's on one] told me that he is out of his mind. This acid just gets you 'there' we all thought...no matter how much you take.. I still can't believe I took 1.5...
We come to the general consensus that this acid may have been laid on blotter improperly, because some hits feel like 70 mics, and some feel more like 250. I love don caballero...the music is my fucking savior.
I'm still GONE.. I feel like I'm still coming up.. I don't like the long duration of lsd 'I'm sticking to short acting tryptamines and the shorter acting 2c-x's from now on..'. We watch nightmare before Christmas and smoke some weed. I am dissolving into fractals...I’m starting to slip away into obscurity.
I look in the mirror; extreme pupil dilation. See the same acrobats in the thin strip of my iris.. I feel that doing some more k might help level out the acid [.. I know, right?].
...shit hits the fan...I'm WAY too high, and my friend [he was rolling and on a lot of K] thought I had come down, and made a 'haha, you're perma-fried joke'.. I start to think I'm never coming down, but tell myself I’ll be fine. I am under the impression that as soon as the sun came up I would be sober.
I’m freaking out.. I make my girlfriend drive over [she's the fucking best], we hang out for a while, and I have her go home with me...she’s pissed off that she has to come save me.
Laying in bed, I drank a bottle of wine, and pop seven 3mg melatonin.. I put on the Simpson’s movie [I needed something mindless] and I’m still absolutely gone...I’m stuck in a loop. I feel like I’m experiencing my own death and rebirth every 30 seconds or so...EVERYTHING is dissolving and reconstituting. I’m horrified because the tv is spitting out nothing but gibberish...I’m seeing in frames...
The movie ends and I’m able to put on Half baked.. I pop 2 more melatonin...still stuck..
I woke up at 12:00 the next morning, still having mild visuals, Smiling ear to ear. I feel like the phoenix...what an intense trip. I still feel like I shouldn’t have survived something that intense, but I did. I talk to my friends, and tell them that it was intense, and that I love them all for being there for me. I truly feel that this was a ++++ experience, and both a blessing and curse. It put a lot of personal matters in perspective.
I felt altered throughout the next day, and upon typing up the outline of events [2 days later] I still don't quite feel normal...shorter attention span than normal.
[2 days later] I still don't quite feel normal...shorter attention span than normal.
I was later told that the doses that I had taken were from the “washout” corner [the sheet is dipped in liquid lsd, and drained…this corner was the corner that was on the bottom, and these doses were [apparently] much more powerful].
I had been tripping frequently all summer [though hadn’t taken a full dose of lsd in about a year]. I felt strong after effects for a few days, and didn’t feel “normal” again for another week or so.
About ketamine not synergizing with psychedelics like lsd… this is QUITE FRANKLY NOT THE CASE. This is a very powerful combination that I personally wasn’t ready for. Others have tried it with lower doses of ketamine and loved it. If I could have changed anything, I would have waited until after eating the lsd to start taking ketamine. I would at least have both feet on the ground before I ate the lsd.
After this trip, I decided it would be best for me to lay off of Psychedelics for a while. Since then I’ve tripped once [a low dose of 2c-c] in late December, and had a wonderful, positive experience.
Be careful with this combo.
