DOSE:
100 mg insufflated Methoxetamine (powder / crystals)

BODY WEIGHT: 250 lb


Having had extensive experience using various hallucinogenics at the time, most notably psilocybin and the 25x compounds, and dabbling in the world of dissociatives with DXM and nitrous, I was at a point where I was really craving something more adventurous and extreme. The times I had with DXM were some of the most intense trips of my life, and seeing the potential for dissociatives to take me to new planes of existence, ketamine was the obvious next step, being much easier to take than swallowing 60 cough gel caps. However, I didn't have a source for ketamine, so I instead went with MXE which I was able to obtain fairly easily, especially since it was not explicitly illegal in my place of residence.

After a few minor trips with MXE among friends, I found it to be a much more calm and relaxing drug than I anticipated.
After a few minor trips with MXE among friends, I found it to be a much more calm and relaxing drug than I anticipated.
The high was most comparable to weed surprisingly, with unusual thought patterns and heightened awareness of feelings and appreciation of music being some of the most noticeable aspects, on a foundation of a nice body high. With DXM I was unable to speak or walk or do anything even close to functioning in society; MXE was the exact opposite, and though it was hard to walk and conversations could get confused I found myself very willing to speak at length, when I could get past the fits of giggling. It gave me a great desire to move and mingle and exist with other human beings which struck me as odd coming from such a synthetic drug.

I reached a point where I was convinced that MXE had more to offer, knowing the differences between low-dose DXM and high-dose and how extreme its potential was, so one night alone I insufflated approximately 100mg and put Pink Floyd's The Wall on my mp3 player to try and coax out some kind of visuals. Lying on my bed and staring at the popcorn ceiling I quickly fell into a trance-like meditative state, where I was not bored at all but I was fully aware of what was going on, the real 'me' was there calmly lying down trying to see what the drug would do, whereas with other drugs it's easy to lose myself and become part of the ether, consumed by the drug. My head rushed and my body felt warm and comfortable no matter what position I lay in but the experience was very boring on a trip level; the music sounded very intense and closing my eyes it felt as if I was right there with the band, hearing every note and vocal as clear as day, but there was nothing spiritual or extraordinary about it compared to my other experiences. Occasionally using tricks of the eyes that I'd learned I could spark myself into seeing movement in the ceiling but this was most likely placebo. My mind was still very calm and relaxed and euphoric from such a high dose but the fact I was still conscious enough to understand what was going on and control it was astounding to me. I thought to myself that this was one of the least intense drugs I'd ever done, and as the album finished I felt disappointed, soon after coming back to baseline and continuing to enjoy the rest of my night listening to music and playing video games.

Overall, my suggestion with MXE is to take low doses and to not fall into the urge to do more expecting something to happen, because most likely it won't. The euphoria and the heightened senses are the extent of the drug, and more doesn't really seem to push these feelings far enough for it to be spectacular like other drugs. A little bit with friends and it's great, a lot alone and it can get boring and I can almost wish it was over so I can get back to my regular life.
