Intro Experience and Lysergamide Comparisons

The following is a description of my first ETH-LAD experience, along with a comparison of ETH-LAD to other lysergamides that I have firsthand experience with.

To give a little background, the vast majority of my lysergamide experience is with LSD. I have only tried ALD-52 (at a dosage of 100 ug) one time. It should be clear to the reader that a single subjective experience is shaky ground on which to base a comparison of effects, but with that being said, I feel that there is some value in the following information.

The ETH-LAD I tried was sourced from the same vendor that the ALD-52 I previously tried came from. The paper blotter had the exact same appearance and dimensions; however the molecular design printed on it was different.

In terms of LSD, the ETH-LAD come up was very comparable in feeling and in duration, and the body load and headspace were equivalent throughout the experience. The closed-eyed visuals were virtually identical to those of LSD. At a dose of 100 ug, I did not notice substantial open-eyed visuals, however, they became quite apparent upon entering dark rooms in my apartment (this experience was done in the middle of a sunny day, had I done this at night time, Iím sure there would have been more obvious open-eyed effects).

For me, at a dosage of 100 ug, ETH-LAD was one hundred percent indistinguishable from LSD.

I couldn't honestly pick out a single subjective difference in its effect profile or duration. I didn't experience any of the negative side-effects that I've read about, such as a harsh body load, nausea or any noticeably uncomfortable vasoconstriction. One blotter of 100 ug ETH-LAD felt just like one tab of LSD.

When I previously tried ALD-52 (100 ug), I noticed that it seemed to be a little less stimulating then LSD. I had an easier time falling asleep afterward, and in general, ALD-52 seemed slightly less demanding of my physical energy. ETH-LAD didn't really share in this attribute. This piece of information needs to be qualified, because perhaps this ALD-52 attribute was just a random by-product of "set and setting" during that one single experience I previously had. With just a single trial under my belt, I have no way of knowing if this "mellow" dynamic is an intrinsic property to ALD-52. If I disregard this "mellow" dynamic as an aberration in that one experience, I would conclude that ETH-LAD and ALD-52 at a dosage of 100 ug are virtually identical in effect profile and duration.
