I am 27, male, an experienced psychonaut who lives on his own, save a room mate who is almost never here.

This is a very rare experience for me, to get to roll on heavy substances in general, but this is also my first time ever consuming a 'research chemical,' and so I feel I should be a responsible user and try to spread information about my personal experience with this very new and unknown chemical. I have not used 'hard' substances for months if not years before this, excluding alcohol, but there was a period in my life when I did them somewhat heavily. Nothing too extreme, but getting it whenever I could sort of thing. Which was usually a binge every couple of months for a year or so tops.

I didn't have a lot of time to prepare for this experience, however I did make sure it was on a day when I had nothing important to to the next day, and that I got enough sleep before using.

Concerning the quality of the cannabis I smoked, it is professionally grown medical grade chronic. I was told it was probably a sativa dominant hybrid, and this seemed correct, but I am not 100% sure. Unfortunately, the amounts of my 6-APBD doses are not precise, as I had no scale and had to guess. However I feel that these recorded amounts should be within 10 to 20 mg at most, give or take.

9:15pm -
I tasted a tiny amount of my sample and waited a little bit to see if anything bad would happen immediately. When nothing did, I proceeded.

~9:30pm - 100 mg 6-APBD Oral
I took the rest of my 100mg sample and put it in a glass of water with a teaspoon of sugar to mask the taste. My stomach was fairly empty except for an apple that I had eaten shortly beforehand. I then went and did things like took a shower, because I needed one, and took out the trash, etc, while I waited for it to kick in.

~10:15 - ~10 mg(unsure) 6-APBD
Not feeling it yet, get out my other sample, 200mg, and decide to take a small bump for whatever reason. Wanted to taste it. I put a very small pile on a piece of paper and sucked into into my mouth with an inhaling motion so it wouldn't be too concentrated in one spot for the tasting. Pretty bitter, but not as bad as I remember some other things being. I drank some water to wash it down, and immediately felt sudden intense pangs of nausea. I started to load weed into my pipe immediately, as it often helps with nausea and I somewhat expected it, however another pang hit me and I vomited a small amount. Not bad, but got the apple out of my system, and unfortunately an unknown amount of my sample. I took hits of cannabis as soon as possible, and between the relief from throwing up and the weed the nausea was quite minor and well under control.

~10-30 - ~10 mg(unsure) 6-APBD Oral
Cannabis(Chronic) Smoked
'Taste' another small bump from my larger sample. No problems. Start to slowly feel as if I'm coming up. I had read on the internet this stuff may take up to two hours to kick in, so I was restraining myself from taking too much more until I was sure it had fully kicked in. I started to feel the effects at this point, very much like rolling, but not as speedy. Though the speedy feel is still there to some extent, it doesn't seem as heavy as it does with say amphetamines. I am enjoying it very much, enough to make me eager to take more, though that may just be me, rather than the drug, I am not sure. I continue to smoke a hit or two of cannabis every so often.

-11:40pm - ~65mg(unsure) 6-APBD Oral
Cannabis(Chronic) Smoked
Confident now that it has fully kicked in, I prepare to take more. I am enjoying the effects more, and I am curious to see what lies in greater amount. It is not overwhelming or intense to me, but I have done lots of amphetamines and stuff like that, so maybe I'm just a little resistant. I have no scale to weigh with so I must simply eyeball what I have, unfortunately. I take a glass of water and put a teaspoon of sugar in it, then sprinkle in what I estimate to be around half, maybe a little more, of my remaining 200mg sample. I drink it down halfway and decide to add more sugar, not because it tastes bad, I just want it sweeter so I can chug it easier. Feeling great but I don't think the second dose has kicked in yet. Don't even want to stop writing haha. Some muscle tensity and teeth grinding, feel a little amped but not major. A few very minor muscle twitches/spasms that seemed unusual. Colors seem a bit brighter. Will report back.

-4:40am - ~50mg(unsure) 6-APBD Oral
Cannabis(Chronic) Smoked
I poured the rest of my sample into a glass of water and added sugar. It turned out to be more than I expected, and I was only able to drink down half of it at first while remaining confident that I would not puke. At this point the roll is still going, but may have lightened up a little bit. I continue to smoke cannabis every so often.

-5:30am - ~65mg(unsure) 6-APBD Oral
Cannabis(Chronic) Smoked
Continue to roll pretty hard. Finish off all the water in the glass. Though it's somewhat embarrassing to admit, I spent a lot of the time masturbating. This is something of a bad habit of mine but the substance certainly didn't discourage it. I have to say that I had little to no trouble achieving erection while I was on something like 100 - 200 mg, but after I had taken all of it I did have some trouble. However looking at porn that really aroused me still did the trick eventually. This may partly be due to the long amount of time I did it, though I was taking breaks every so often. I also browsed web forums and made comments which seemed to me at the time to be amazing and witty, and that I hoped lots of people saw because I felt it would truly change the way they thought if they understood my message. I was very talkative. I just felt like a ball of positive energy, one of the many magnificent people making up this amazing species of humanity. I felt enlightened, not by knowledge, but by positive energy. I felt love for everyone and I wanted to make as many people smile as possible. However I stuck to commenting anonymously on imageboards rather than looking up internet friends, because I didn't want them to see me so fucked up. Time flew by, I was having a blast.

-4 - 6 (??) pm -
I don't remember exactly when, but sometime in the late afternoon/early evening I finally laid down, pretty exhausted and a little bit sore at this point. I quickly fell into a good half to three quarters of the way asleep and stayed that way for 8 to 10 hours, waking up, still a bit tired, shocked to find out I'd managed to easily sleep for so long. Normally I have a lot of trouble and I was expecting to be strung out from the substance, but that was not so much the case. However, a full recovery did in fact take much longer than I expected. I did not feel depressed, but over the following few days I did have a lack of motivation and reduced energy. I also had some soreness, in part due to my activities, and in part due to muscle tension from the substance. A full recovery seemed to take significantly longer than it would with MDMA or amphetamines, say four days to a week perhaps. Though I was still able to function, I was just very lazy.

All in all, a very enjoyable substance, however carrying a big downside in the relatively lengthy recovery time.
