The Demons In My Bedroom
4-HO-DET & Cannabis Edible
by AM
Citation:   AM. "The Demons In My Bedroom: An Experience with 4-HO-DET & Cannabis Edible (exp110443)". May 22, 2017.

T+ 3:40
  oral Cannabis (edible / food)
  T+ 3:40 30 mg oral 4-HO-DET  
At ~9:30PM I dosed ~30 mg of 4-HO-DET, a chemical which is similar in structure to psilocybin.

At ~10:20PM I was feeling the comeup and body load of the chemical. I was starting to experience mild visual distortions (colours appearing at the edges of objects), as well as general disorientation.

At ~11:00PM I felt really strange. The body load was overbearing and I was starting to see flashes of red and colour popping up in front of me, as well as hearing sounds and music that wasn't there. My friend (who had dosed ~20 mg) was also playing strange videos on the computer, which didn't help.

At ~11:30PM we headed downstairs for a change of scenery. This didn't really help, and I didn't stay for long as I was uncomfortable. I headed back upstairs to my room. In my room I became very disoriented and terrified, feeling ill and seeing rather strange things. The flickering of visuals and colours continued, and a very deep red seemed to grow when I felt frightened, and lessen when I didn't.

At ~12:00PM I shut off the lights in my room and stared at the ceiling fan. The ceiling fan began to morph into a shadow creature that looked at me with big, pointy teeth. The shadows in my room turned into monsters that started at me and started to close in on me. Bright flashes of red continued and overtook most of my vision, with red appearing at the edges of my vision. I sat here for about 30 minutes trying to desensitize myself to the fright.

At ~12:30PM I went downstairs feeling a bit more relaxed, with the majority of the fear being over. I sat and watched some tv, before going back upstairs for a bit and facing the horrors in my room again til ~1:00AM.

At ~1:00AM I went back downstairs to relax. My friend had taken an additional tab of acid at this point (around 11 or 12, but I'm not sure), and seemed to not be experiencing many effects. He was disappointed, so I suggested he take an edible.

At ~1:10AM we both took an edible (25 mg THC). I took one because I wanted to sleep, he took one because he wanted to trip harder.

At ~2:00AM with the edible hitting me, I decided to take a sleeping pill as I wanted to go to bed and the edible wasn't making me tired enough. I accidentally bit the sleeping pill, releasing a nasty substance in my mouth that numbed my mouth and caused me to vomit.

At ~3:00AM I headed to bed, while my friend started tripping out as I thought he was fine.

At ~3:30AM I had to come downstairs as my friend was hearing voices and screaming as auditory hallucinations, and seeing thousands of eyes staring at him as visual hallucinations.

By ~4:00AM everything was okay, so I went to bed.
