I will be giving two reports, one on oral, and one of insufllated ROA. Both experiences were done using only this substance, but there were a few more added into the mix before flushing what I had left of this substance.

The first time, I took around 250-300mg oral. The second time, I took 200mg insufflated a day after my oral dose.

Before this, the only disassociative I've used is DXM.

Started at 9:30P.M.

t+0:00 Take gelcap with approx. 100mg if ephinidine.

t+1:00 Take another 100mg.

t+2:00 Insufflate ~35mgs. Definitely feel something now. Kind of a rush. Everything gets a little wobbly. I eyeball a dose ~35mg, and insufflate it.

t+2:15 Feeling very lightly dissociated. Everything is fun. I'm watching the end of the Cell Saga of DBZ and all the explosions are sending me good vibes. Idk, how to explain it, the flashing lights make me giddy, there ya go.

t+3:00 Sitting outside smoking a cigarette. I feel very anaesthaetized as I do so. The cigarette has no meaning. Nothing has meaning.

t+3:15 I guess you can't re-dose with this one, not getting any stronger. The effect is... there. That's the only way I can describe it. I am here. If the intensity doesn't rise any further I will put this one down as a failed experiment. Even though there is slight stimulation and a feeling of 'something', I have benzos handy if this gets too boring... Expecting to sleep soon...

t+3:45 - Smoke some bud to liven things up a bit. No OEVS to account for and mild CEVs are present.
Everything after this point was written the day after...

t+4:00- Started getting visuals. Some OEVs, more CEVS, but it was more typical of an increase in HPPD.

t+5:00 Getting really tired of this head space. I do not like feeling nothing at all, so I don't think this is for me. No emotion, no nothing.

t+6:00 Take 3mg of etizolam to sleep. Nothing. Take 7mg more and I'm out like a light.

t+18:30 I wake up. I still feel residual effects. Take 2mg etizolam to keep the bad feels away. Idk could just be in my head.

Overall, I'd say it was ok at first. Definitely worth a try, but as it drags on I started feeling some very negative vibes. Maybe somebody's cup of tea, but definitely not mine. I'm surprised by the glowing reports on other forums comparing this to MXE. Yes, you're disassociated, but your headspace is so clear it makes it eerie.

tl;dr 5-6/10 at a dosage of around 200-300, both bombed and insufflated. The best part was right when it kicked in and I insufflated around `35mgs. It was all downhill from there.

2nd experience, insufflated 200mg total the day after using 200mg total.

t-6:00 - Took 2mgs etizolam

t-2:00 - Took 1 mg etizolam

t-0:00 Insufflated 100mg of ephenidine. Burn! Bad Smell! not too much pain. My eyes start watering like crazy, and my nose also starts running.

t+0:15-30 - Rush of strange euphoria. Feel 'creamy' much like people have been saying elsewhere.

t+0:45 - Double vision. Sometimes dip very low and then go way back up mood-wise.

t+1:00 - Clean out nose in hopes to prevent scabbing if chemical is indeed caustic. No blood.

t+1:15 - Lubricate nose with tissue/lotion

t+1:30 insufflate further 60mg. When blowing nose before insufflation, no blood was noticed.

t+1:40 Feeling tingling in left side of brain (where I would generally have nerve pain).

t+2:00 Finish insufflation for a total of 200mg

t+2:15 Still feeling nice, though not as nice as earlier. I think this stuff wears off quite a bit more quickly when insufflated.

t-2:15-3:00 Strange feeling of tingling in brain. Sometimes like amphetamine, sometimes like brain zaps. Definitely still feeling it. Its not particularly strong, but not totally worth throwing away, either. My thoughts are disconnected. My nose is still running profusely. When I close my eyes, I don't see much out of the ordinary.

t-3:00-3:15 Clean out nose. There's no blood. Its definitely a drug that produces a feeling, but not too many hallucinations thus far. I never tried lying down in bed, never wanted to. Never closed my eyes. Never wanted to. I do see things differently, but cannot describe them. Typing is harder. I will be stopping here with dosing for tonight.

I've never tried ketamine, but from what I've heard of it, this is probably nothing like it. It sounds a lot more like PCP to me. Being naive to both of these chemicals AND MXE, I have no experience to back any of this up.

However, I can compare it to a DXM trip for y'all. There are similarities for sure, but it is far different than DXM and feels much nicer. I'm not in a black land of nothing-ness, with little pixels and white lines composing my universe. I don't have million other voices in my head I'm communicating with. I'm not writhing in agony trying to prevent myself from puking, as the darkness of the purple kool-aid euphoria universe smashes into my brain.

I'm wide-awake, typing up a trip report and feeling both kind of stimmy and kind of purple-koolaid-ey. I'm euphoric, but I'm not euphoric in a general sense of the word. I don't FEEL stupid or uninhibited, but I'm sure if you tried to have a conversation with me you'd go crazy and leave the room.

t+3:25 My head feels very heavy. Starting to get tired. Going to go try and get some food and water, then sleep.

t+3:35 Never got food, drank some water, smoked a cigarette. Time dilation present. Sensation continuing to wane. Nose still running constantly. Also feeling some dysphoria. Trying to hydrate and eat healthy foods.

At some point, I fell asleep using etizolam. Woke up early (~12:00), mixed together 3.5g of mushroom tea, and another separate 2g of mushroom tea.

After consuming the tea, I decided to flush all of my ephenidine. After taking the tea, I concluded that ephenidine was very neurotoxic and would not be pursuing any further tests with it.

Since taking 200mg a couple days ago, and the 200mgs insuff last night (who knows how much drip I got), I still feel it. From what I've read this can last for 3-5 days.

I am hoping benzos taken during my ephenidine use will lessen the damage done to my brain. I heard from another source that ephenidine is actual a neuroprotective agent, which I believe is total bogus.

t-20:00 - I am essentially a vegetable being run by coffee at this point. The tea consumed at 1:00pm made me feel much better, but I am still a vegetable at this point.

Several days later, I can still feel residual effects.
Several days later, I can still feel residual effects.
I am also blowing blood out of my nose, but that could be due to it being so dry from the cold I'm suffering from currently.
