It was a quiet Sunday night, not unlike many others. J, K, R, C, and myself were all relaxing at M’s place, smoking Marijuana. M and myself began smoking shortly before 9 P.M., and K and C joined us within an hour. C and I were discussing some recent experiences with a new substance (DOC) when he mentioned he had recently tried 2Ci. Having researched the compound I was very interested in his experience, but was disappointed to learn that the doses were “bunk.” Seeing my disappointment C offered me two tabs for free, assuring me that at most I could a light feeling of euphoria with possible very faint closed-eye visuals.
I took both tabs simultaneously, letting the paper dissolve completely on the underside of my tongue, while smoking 3 more bowls through a bong. About twenty minutes after final dissolution of the paper (approx 45 min after initial consumption) R took me back to my house, as I was not planning on any significant effects, and was fairly sleepy after the amount of cannabis we had consumed. I promptly went to bed after returning, laying down in my dark room, listening to the sounds of the air conditioning fan and contemplating some insignificant concepts from a introductory Philosophy class I was enrolled in.
Around 11:45 my thoughts gradually become more serious, and almost frantic in that they were coming very fast, and I felt as though I had to grasp on to all the thoughts and ideas coming my way or they were to be forever lost. I slowly began to realize I was well on my way to a trip, and quickly changed into some comfortable clothes and grabbed all of the pillows and blankets I could find and made myself comfortable in the middle of my dark bedrooms floor (my favorite setting for producing an enjoyable and quality experience.)
I began to notice the first sign of visuals, yet there was no apparent organization to them, just random flashes of light and color across my vision. Over the next half hour, the visuals gradually increased in intensity, becoming by far the most intense visuals I had experienced. My vision had given away to incredibly complex geometric patterns, with light hints of color that seemed to coordinate with the pattern and the thoughts I was having that had given way to thoughts of my own consciousness. I found myself contemplating my own cognitive processes, and my behavioral patterns, trying to make sense of myself, and hopefully gain insight into who I was to allow me to address issues in my personal life I felt were preventing me from finding happiness.

Suddenly I felt not only my physical being, but my conscious being jolted away from my body and my mind. Suddenly I was looking down upon my cognitive process as if it were a complex piece of machinery, such as a watch. I found myself easily navigating my way between the components, instantly recognizing and diagnosing them, discover facets of my emotions and thoughts I never understood, or in some cases never knew existed.
I carried on exploring and learning with great enthusiasm and relished every new piece of information until approximately 4 AM. As my vision began to return with the trip fading, I found myself physically and emotionally exhausted. The significance and magnitude of my adventure weighed heavily on my mind as I tried to grasp all I had learned at once. I moved to my bed and made myself comfortable, and fell asleep sometime between 5 and 6 am while peacefully reflecting on everything I had learned over the past few hours.
I slept for about seven hours and awoke completely drained. The next day was spent recovering by rehydrating, smoking cannabis to relax and counter-effect any remaining side effects of the drug, and trying to explain to friends the cognitive process as I now understood it. This was by far one of the most powerful experiences I have ever had, in regards to both intensity of trip and the topics and revelations had during the trip. This was a fantastic drug, however it took me almost a week to feel completely normal, 3 to feel good enough that I wasn’t distracted by the residual effects. Also, since the experience (3 weeks) I have experienced a couple of flashbacks, in which I was very apprehensive of other people. I am glad I experienced this drug in a safe location by myself, rather than in a group or at any kind of event.
