100 mg insufflated Ketamine (powder / crystals)


It is so ironic that ketamine was one of the last psychedelics I had in my list to try, I always had a prejudice towards it since it is used as vet drug. Anyways, had an open mind about this last frontier but no expectations, and boy was I about to get my mind blown. This is one of the most misundestood psychedelics, and after trying it one with the most potential.

The experience starts right away, not even 5 minutes after inhaling and I am in it, its easy to get seduced by its physical effects but that's nothing compared to the mind trips I go if I am in a proper setting. It is very controlable in a trip sense and bad trips last for a few minutes, wouldnt even consider them bad trips. It is very social in a introspective kind of sense, meaning I get to reflect on my relationships and resolve conflicts in a very pragmatic kind of way but it is also big on understanding society as a whole.

In that sense it is one of the most down to earth psychedelics I've tried, dont get me wrong I go into another dimensions with its own time sense and rules.
I go into another dimensions with its own time sense and rules.
Things make sense in a universal sense while on ketamine, I even get fustrated since I realise I will not be able to explain my findings with people. The irony of the trip is immediate, it take an anesthetic to realise that my bodily form is temporary and limited, our bodies are instruments to experience and enjoy this form of existance but the dissosiative aspect reminds me that conciousness is much bigger. It is when I come into terms with the human "beast" and I love it that I realise that I am something else.

Intuitively acid, DMT or shrooms looked to be the most psychedelic but for me ketamine holds a different key, it shows me the reality and limitations of this existence and lets me see beyond through experience.
