At the time of this experience I was dabbling with LSD quite a bit during the prior 3 months. Although I kinda got tired of LSD as the lengthy duration and I feel that I can never go as deep as I can with psychedelic tryptamines. Therefore I decided that I would order a 1 gram of 4ACO DET from a trusted vendor. I had never tried it before but was very fascinated in that I have heard it's almost like a odd combination of DMT (sub breakthrough), Mushrooms, and an LSD like head space.

Day of experience-


Mind you I am normally very safe and cautious while experimenting with any substance, especially psychedelic in nature, however I had just gotten home from a lengthy night out and I really wanted to crash. I normally take melatonin before I sleep and for some genius reason I had my 4ACO and Melatonin in identical containers (unlabeled). I know, stupid on my part. So like the schmutz that I am, I pour a PHAT dose of the 4ACO in a cup of tea and down that sucker. Mind you the entire time I think I took the melatonin
the entire time I think I took the melatonin

I'm laying in my bed and I get a hefty stomach pain and think, well that's odd, but I haven't eaten anything since 8pm the previous day so I think nothing of it. However I start to notice some light trails and chop that up as tiredness.


Okay something is up. I'm seeing some serious OEVs at this point. Almost like a cross of DMT and LSD although not too big of a mind fucked. I then realized that I'm in for a ride. So being as I tripped 3 days prior my thought was "Oh, this can't get that intense". I AM SO IGNORANT.


I decide to take my pup for a walk. 2 year old pit bull. Hell of a girl. So we start to walk and everything is alive. Like LSD alive. Although the geometrical shapes are very close to light dose DMT or shrooms. My body load is also weird I feel hypertensive but I reminded myself that it's highly unlikely I'll suffer anything really bad, minus some muscle tension.


My pup and I get home and now I'm really worried. I can't remember the last time I tripped this hard and only an hour in has me worried. I think of calling my girlfriend but she is unaware of my reckless decision making so I decided to go on my own. I decide to enjoy the visuals a little and lay down. That's when some craziness happens. The sun shines through my blinds in a golden light and leaves a strip in my vision. In that strip I see myself, in my bed, however I see like millions of other time lines and I freak. Absolutely freak. I run to my backyard and start drinking a glass of water. At this point my paranoia is through the roof. My boss calls me and I can't even make a sentence out and just hang up. Luckily she's cool and laughed about it when I told her a day later.


At this point my backyard is going wild. My orange tree looks like some giant ceremonially decorated chicken, and the brick walls have all sorts of wild patterning and shaping. My puppy is color shifting like a mofo and I know she knows something is up cause she is very indifferent around me, and normally she won't leave my side. Then I look at the ground and I see all of Fat Albert and the gang chillen just laughing at me in my schizo/delerious state.


Lucky for me I could barely make sentences so a lot of my freak outs were inner dialogue that I could talk myself out of. One interesting thing I noticed with this substance was that my vision went 270 degrees, almost like breakthrough DMT visual frame. And the more I focused the further I would drift into that state and become disconnected from my body and my visual field would distort like crazy and fractals upon fractals would start to fill my visual field. I probably sat around like this for 3 hours or so because when I checked my clock, at this point it was about almost 6pm.


I was still at a ++/+++ at 6 hours in. That's not normal at all for tryptamines so I knew I took a hefty dose. I thought smoking weed would calm me down but it brought me right back to almost where I was at peak effects. I continue to sit outside and admire the wildlife and my pup around the yard with my other dogs.


At this point I have very minor visuals and I'm really coming down. I'm surprised to say I haven't noticed any side effects (at least negative ones)
I'm surprised to say I haven't noticed any side effects (at least negative ones)
and this trip was honestly a lot of fun, minus the fact that I didn't expect it.

After about 10 hours all effects have subsided and I'm almost at baseline minus the fact that lights are still very bright.

4 ACO DET is a very interesting substance. I definitely want to try to get to the headspace I was at when I did this mix up lol. I would say it's a very fun trip, but I'll stick to natural tryptamines if I wanna go deep. This seemed more on the recreational side.
Aways label your stuff because I feel that if I hadn't tripped a few days prior and was at no tolerance and took this much, it probably would have ended a lot worse.

There is a reason why 30mg is a heavy dose. I feel very lucky to still be alive and I will never be that much ignorant ever again.

Always mark your shit peeps

Stay safe
