This IS My Favorite Drug.
Note: I’m a 180lbs male who’s experimented with LSD, 2ci, 2ce, 2ct2, 2cb and DMT.
So the other night three friends and I decide to have an epic trip on 2ci. I had taken it a handful of times before but the other three hadn’t.
At 8:26 PM we ingest a pretty good amount.
Me – 45mgs
Josh - 35mgs
Girl # 1 – 25mgs
Girl # 2 – 25mgs.
The visuals have started and everything looks stylized. The room becomes a little hazy. My body feels alive and full of energy. The four of us smoke a bowl, followed by a hookah bowl of blue mist tobacco.
Things aren’t feeling like the familiar 2ci trip. I can tell I should take more, so I take 10 more mg of powder placed under the tongue…yeah it tastes gross.
(T+ 2:00) We’re all very giggily but not “tripping” like I wanted, so we decide to take a little more each. I take 20mg more, as does Josh, the girls take 10mg more a piece.
Perhaps we should’ve waited a little more before deciding this but we didn’t. #yolo
This is where things start to break down. After literally eating 20mg of 2ci powder, my face feels a little numb and foreign. I can taste the very chemically taste of 2ci and I hear the drug say to me: “Don’t fuck with me.” I realized then, I am in for a fucking trip. Note: I have consumed 75-80mg+ by this point.
We break out the bubbles and blow our hookah smoke through the bubble wands. It’s quite amazing to watch. Listening to music on nice Studio Headphones is like listening to music for the first time.
A proper trip ensues. Time breaks down. Music becomes ubiquitous, and perfect. Computers are super hard to operate already, yet I don’t feel the body effects that are common with research chemicals from the 2c family.
We all start to feel the waves of nausea.
The girls will not stop talking, and talking and talking.
I can’t help thinking I wouldn’t be as nauseous if these girls would shut-up.
***Midnight and onwards there is a gap in my notes as I was so fucked up I couldn’t put a pen to paper. I melted into the floor multiple times and really enjoyed watching the Winamp Visualizer “Milkdrop.”
Throughout the trip we did some nitrous oxide. Nitrous adds a weird sneaking trippy feeling to a 2ci trip. It’s interesting to say the least.
I feel good but on another level than everyone else. I have never been this fucked up on 2ci before. I don’t think I can move but when I don’t think about moving and just move out of “muscle memory” I can move. Any task is extremely difficult at this point in my night.
After watching Milkdrop and smoking hookah we started to finger-paint. The cool paint felt so amazing on my hands and the pure amount of color that came out of the bottles of paint was utterly beautiful. Colors have never vibrated more than they did and it almost brought tears to my eyes how ridiculously awesome and beautiful all this color was. When you make a stroke on the paper, color just explodes onto the page, and then retracts and then expands and retracts. The painting is alive when you’re on this much 2ci.
I remember having tribal war paint on my face, finger-painting whilst listening to Thievery Corporation, staring into my painting thinking these visuals are fucking amazing.
I read somewhere else online that someone had said it (2ci) has a distinct pattern and at certain doses this pattern is projected onto everything like a watermark, if you will. For me it was an Octagonal orbiting shape orbiting in sync with thousands of others. It was almost as if I was looking through a screen door, but the screen was rotating octagons.
Around 1 am girl # 1 and I go into the shower to wash the paint off our faces. Note: I really enjoy showering while tripping. Honestly it’s best to do it at the peak and be in a completely completely dark shower. The Open Eye Visuals are out of this world and the water feels amazing.
Someone asked me if sex on 2ci was fun. I said “Let me put it this way, I won’t trip on 2ci without having a girl that’s dtf.
(T+ 5:00-25) I am I am so nauseous, I feel like I want to throw up every other min. but of course I can’t throw up. Eventually I was able to throw up, twice, and let me add that I’ve never thrown up on any drug. This was quite an intense experience.
(T+ 5:30-45) I am finally able to write down something, and things are still so crazy. Faces move…there are fractal patterns everywhere. When I close my eyes it is bright. Everyone is pretty talkative and its only now that I can actually join in on the conversation. I was pretty into my head and my trip for a while, lost in the amazing music and Milkdrop.
All of the stimulation really pounded on my brain and at times I had a headache, like an octopus was squatting on my brain.
(T+ 5:50-6:20) We go on an adventure walk/cigarette break. The moon is nearly full and hung enormous in the sky. It was quite incredible looking at the sky as I was seeing shooting stars (not really shooting stars but hallucinations of them).
(T+ 7:45) We head to bed but it takes a little while to fall asleep.
Because of this my high dosage I felt severely out of it for days, as did everyone else. I was definitely not ‘back to feeling normal’ for at least 4 days.
