I have tried a lot of different psychedelics in my life and generally tend to prefer lysergemides over mushrooms/2c-x, since they usually give me more predictable and therapeutic experiences.

My recent favorite substance for fun and pretty trips is AL-LAD. While it is structurally very close to LSD, I don't find the effects very comparable at all. In my past experiences, LSD at doses over 300mcg has been very chaotic, confusing and immersive. AL-LAD is much more forgiving on the mind and makes up for it in visual beauty. It shares certain aspects such as light warping of textures on the wall, but the effects mainly manifest themselves in colorful auras around objects, usually with a pronounced electric red and blue shimmer. The visual aspects are accompanied by a funny mood, lots of giggles but trouble communicating. It still makes for great times with friends, although I think taking it by yourself would be just as fun.

Over the last years I have experimented with the science of nootropics and have ran just about every racetam in existence for months at a time. I would love to elaborate on the benefits of nootropics, but in this report I want to focus on the synergy between Piracetam and hallucinogens.

I used to take piracetam every day, but eventually stopped because I was experiencing frequent bouts of brain fog at the time and piracetam seemed to be a likely candidate for being the source of that problem. In the months following cessation of piracetam, I noticed that drugs such as MDMA, LSD and Cannabis were much more underwhelming than they used to be:
- MDMA would make me sedated and introverted instead of the feeling of busting through a thousand emotions and empathizing with people I talk to
- LSD would only give me a subset of effects and the confusion would often just make me feel awkward instead of giving me insights into my mind
- Cannabis would just make my body relax and inspire some conversation, but I missed the sort of philosophical mindset that used to make it so refreshing

About two weeks ago I started taking 1-2g of piracetam & 300mg Alpha-GPC daily in order to regain the magic of MDMA, an effect that is widely reported on the internet. I also wanted to explore if piracetam potentiates lysergemides, since there are lots of reports of piracetam intensifying LSD trips and I thought that might be the reason why my first LSD trips were so much deeper. After having only recently acquired AL-LAD and being fascinated by it, I was of course more than excited to see what the addition of piracetam would bring to the table. What follows is my recollection of what was a great trip with an incredible synergy between piracetam, Aladdin and copious amounts of weed.

T-2:00: Preloaded 2400mg piracetam and magnesium.

T+0:00: Two friends arrive, we chat a little bit and then take 2 tabs ( 150mcg) of AL-LAD each, totalling 300mcg AL-LAD each. None of us currently has a tolerance to tryptamines. My wife is not partaking in tripping because she is feeling sick.

T+1:00: Somehow the tabs have still not dissolved fully and I'm only starting to feel an onset of effects. Friends seem a little bit more intoxicated. We start playing Super Smash Bros and I'm still pretty good at it. Music starts sounding better, confusion sets in after a little while.

T+2:00: After a few rounds of smash and lots of cigarette breaks, we put on Home Alone. At this point my vision is already covered by speckles of AL-LAD shine. Gold, blue and red - it looks electric and magical, somewhat reminiscent of being 10 minutes into a DMT trip.

T+2:30: Time to load up the bong and take a big rip. I was hesitant to smoke earlier because I wanted the effects of Aladdin to plateau first. We smoke 3x 1g bowls, one of them spiced up with a minishovel full of kief.

And boy oh boy, I am pretty sure I've never been this high. The combination of these three substances catapulted me into psychedelic wonderland. My entire vision is full of shiny geometrical but organic looking patterns, and my closed eye visuals and open eye visuals have merged into each other. My thinking is extremely abstract and unclear, but the headspace is superb.

I have a great sense of having tapped into deeper knowledge (I declared 'My brain just became the unibrain'). Talking, or rather listening became incredibly difficult. I wanted to communicate and share my insights, but I got so easily distracted that it was impossible to have a back-and-forth with anyone. My wife asked me if I think people still need drugs if you can perfectly emulate a trip with VR. Mind blowing to think about when you are tripping, but I couldn't even think of an answer because I got distracted by thinking of the particles that make up her skin and the gravitational forces that hold everything together. Lol.

T+4:00: Slowly coming down but I peaked for a long time. I am still kind of lost in my own head and getting tired. I actually didn't see a single part of the movie, even though I stared at the TV for pretty much the entire time. My friends are leaving now and we are just playing with our crystal pois while listening to music, which is of course very entertaining when you are tripping. My wife is very good with them tonight, I don't know if it's the AL-LAD or if they always look this cool, but I love watching it.

T+5:00: Objects still have that unique electric shimmer around them. My mind is pretty empty now but I feel very positive. Taking some etizolam and magnesium to get some sleep. This is where the trip ends.

Final conclusion: I don't think I'll ever trip without piracetam again. It improves the trip so much.
