30 mg oral 2C-D (powder / crystals)
    smoked Cannabis - High THC  


Previous Psychedelic/Dissociative/Empathogen Experience: AL-LAD, LSD, LSA, 2C-B, 2C-D, DMT 4-AcO-DMT/MET, 4-HO-DMT/MET, MXE, 3-MeO-PCP/PCE, 2í-OxO-PCE/PCM, Ketamine, Ephenidine, DXM, N2O, MDA, MDMA, 4-FA, 6-APB

Today started out like any other day, my main boo and I broke it off for the millionth time or so it seems. Maybe that's just normal for relationships. I was feeling a bit frustrated but I had been feeling taking some 2C-D and decided to proceed with the trial when she left for work. I had taken 2C-D two other times before, the first time I ended up redosing a few times so I was not able to get a great feel on the experience, the other time I wanted to study organic chemistry and test the ďsmart drugĒ effect at 7mg - the results were inconclusive.

Originally I was going to take 20mg but after dropping some on the scale it weighed 30 and the thought came over me that this is an auspicious sign and I should just take it, I start to backtrack but then I hear McKenna in my head saying ďDouble the dose, Double the Dose!Ē so I proceed to wrap up the 30mg in some toilet paper and swallow it with some water. At first I was apprehensive but as soon as I took it a calm came over me and I decided to go for a hike.

I decided to take the way up the trail that is less steep and it took me probably 20-30 min to get to the trailhead, by then I was definitely feeling it a bit. This stuff seems pretty anxiolytic at this dose and I felt fairly confident and extremely clear-headed, although my footing was somewhat impaired and my legs got pretty heavy somewhere between the 60-90 min mark. It feels extremely transparent on the body, my body would feel pretty light, sometimes like it wasnít even there. When I would pass other people I had no worries and I felt like I could be just as friendly or even moreso than normal on this. Music was slightly enhanced, I was listening to a nice indie psych rock playlist Iíd just found and it was very enjoyable and I was happy to have found some good new music. I kept thinking I should have taken 5-10mg more but in retrospect this was a good dose since I was hiking alone without a sober companion.

One thing I noticed is how present I felt in the moment on this stuff, something that makes me want to start using psychs more. The past few years I feel like Iím often somewhere else mentally even when in the moment I should be having a good time, this is something that I attribute to my abuse of dissociatives and it is certainly one of the reasons I have sworn them off. The hike itself helps with this and I find it to be very grounding and stabilizing.

When I felt like I was around the 2C-Dís peak I sat down on top of a rock formation overlooking the city to try and see if I could coax a bit more psychedelia out of this experience. The most I got visually was when the baby blue colors of the sky started to blend with the city into this beautiful blue pastel color everywhere and I had the impression that my field of vision widened, like I was seeing a 180 degree view. With eyes closed there were hints of psychedelia, such as seeing what I could only describe as little frog feet in my mindís eye. Once the peak seemed to be fading I decided to start the trek home and I took the steeper route down without issues.

I got home and ordered some pizza which tasted just amazing. Both times I have ate on 2C-D it was a much improved gustatory experience. The olfactory seems better attuned on it as well.

This stuff is really short, itís been a little over 4 hours and I already feel basically up and down, despite taking a couple hits of 27% THC sativa out of a bowl. I can tell the 2C-D is still in my system but I donít feel bound to the experience and havenít for a while now, perhaps a low ++ at this point. All in all, I plan to take this substance again at a higher dose and I am thankful to have grabbed a gram when I had the chance.

I develop a slight headache while coming down that gets a bit worse as evening comes but by the time I go to sleep it has faded. Although I have had headaches on 2C-B comedowns before, this may not be the 2C-Dís fault as I had skipped the espresso this morning and then had some with my pizza when I was coming down.

The next day I wake up feeling extremely refreshed with a heightened sense of smell and colors are still more saturated than normal. I even get an urge to clean after smoking a bowl with my boo (who has given me ďone more chanceĒ) and thoroughly enjoyed picking up the house for a bit.
