This is my first report, it might not be the best but I'm going to try. This was a very glowing experience. My mindset going in to the trip is as normal as I get, I do suffer from depression and have my ups and downs. On the day of the trip I was feeling a little down but nothing too much, I was recently kicked out of my parents house for smoking weed. I have tripped on a few substances before this and was fairly certain I was in a good enough mindset due to experience and reading from multiple sources about hows eth-lad is easier on the mind. The setting at the time of dosing was my room in a boarding house I just moved into three weeks prior. There was a rain storm outside this day but we will get to that.

--- Times are estimations I only know for sure the time of dropping --

11:40 - Put the 1 1/4 blotter in my mouth totaling about 125ug, than proceed to take a shower as I always do when dosing.
12:10 - Back in the room, am feeling that feeling when I know somethings different but I cant see any changes. Maybe things look a little brighter.
12:40 - Playing stepmaina on the computer waiting until visuals kick in, very slight morphing head still clear.

1:10 - its at this point the visuals start to manifest, and they come on fast, but I'm not worried about it its a smooth but fast ride. It should be noted that I had no bad effects on my body during the comeup and was feeling a general euphoria. Kinda like I took some mdma.
1:45 - Visuals intensifying, having a ball looking in the mirror my face is morphing around and when I'm focusing on my eyes these transparent scarves of light start pulsing towards me, small amount of anxiety here and there but nothing that I dont overcome by being in awe of what I am seeing. Feeling a happiness that I've not felt in awhile, just a pure joy of everything. (I've done 3gs of mushrooms, 300ug of al-lad and 150ug - 300ug of 1p-lsd and haven't had visuals like this)

2:10 - Believe I'm peaking now so I decide to close my eyes, I have never experience CEVs ever until this point, when I close my eyes I see colors and then this network of what I would describe as tubular nets that go off into the distance as far as I can see appear, like a synaptic network in a realm under my eyelids.
2:30- There is a rain storm going on outside. I want a slice of pizza and also I want to look at nature so I suit up and head on out. The first thing I notice is that every rain drop I hear echos and the water running along the sides of the road and down hills sound like I'm standing beside massive rushing rivers. I make my way downtown and am a little worried about crossing busy streets, and that was smart because I was getting a tiny bit overwhelmed and thought a car that was parked by an intersection was letting me go so I dart across the road only to realize a car is coming directly at me. I get to the pizza shop and feel a little to soaked and nervous to go in to get the pizza.

3:10- Start the walk home and decide to take the side roads for safety and so I can look at the trees and grass. Now the trees looked amazing, it was like I had Super HD vision when looking at it and all the moss and what not looked like it was alive and moving not to mention the 3d grass that was growing. Now imagine a person soaked out in a rain storm stopping, looking at and touching every tree he walked by.... Yep I was that crazy guy haha.
4:00- Get back to my room turn the lights down low and just enjoy the rest of the trip in darkness, looking at myself in the mirror just feeling good watching the visuals.
5:00 - Peak is coming to an end
9:00 - Pretty much back to baseline

Now this was a very easy trip on the mind very little anxiety, hit me sometimes while I was outside but it was quite overwhelming with the cold, rain, and galeforce winds and like I said nothing I couldn't easily get over. The after glow of this was amazing I was and am feeling better than I have in a very very long time, upbeat and feeling like doing the things I felt like I no longer wanted to do, which was basically everything. With Eth-Lad there seems to be a high dose response curve after 100ug, 25ug extra was enough to give the most visual and audio hallucinations that I've ever experienced with very little mental effects and alot of euphoria.
