A Pleasant Experience With a Friend

Citation:   Deja_Vu. "A Pleasant Experience With a Friend: An Experience with Diphenhydramine (exp111564)". May 30, 2018.

T+ 0:00
250 mg oral Diphenhydramine (pill / tablet)
  T+ 0:10 1 g smoked Cannabis (plant material)
  T+ 1:30 75 mg oral Diphenhydramine (pill / tablet)
  T+ 1:30 1 g smoked Cannabis (plant material)


I have never tripped before this and am still unsure if I did in fact ďtripĒ but here is my experience.

T + 0.00
I took 10, 25mg pills of Benadryl which is 250mg in total. I was with a friend who had taken 9.

T + 10.00
We put on face masks and smoked around 1g of marijuana each while waiting for it to dry. Iím not tired at this point and am starting to feel a tightness/gassy feeling in my stomach and chest but nothing too uncomfortable.

T + 45.00
I feel somewhat drowsy but mainly high, itís a nice euphoric feeling. As I look at the walls I notice small cubes of static.

T + 60.00
My words begin to slur and limbs feel heavy and almost like static. My mind is completely conscious yet my body and mouth feel drunk. I state multiple times that, ďI know Iím slurring my words but I just feel high.Ē And for the most part all I did feel was high.

T + 70.00
I continue feeling more and more inebriated. Any attempt of walking was followed by my body losing balance and having to catch myself. Both of our eyes are extremely bloodshot.

T + 90.00
The ďdrunkĒ feeling wore off and I feel extremely tired and keep telling myself that once the tired feeling wears off Iíll begin to trip (spoiler: I didnít). Iíve never taken any type of hallucinogen prior to this experience and am not sure how Iím supposed to feel so I take 75mg more of DPH and smoke about another gram of marijuana.

T + 95.00
I almost immediately feel very high and somewhat drunk again, would I have still felt this way if I hadnít smoked?

Neither of us felt too heavy or weighed down at any point in the night. I forgot to mention that I got up to pee every 20 or so minutes about six times, and I had a pretty bad cotton mouth throughout the night. I feel extremely tired the rest of the night and decide to finally go to bed around two in the morning. I slept without interruption until around 11:45 am and couldnít recall any dreams I might have had during my sleep.

Overall. It wasnít an awful or scary experience as I went into it thinking it would be. The DPH hit my friend almost the same as it hit me but around and hour apart from each other, hers the latter.
