Snorting Phenibut

I have quite a bit of experience with Phenibut HCL orally.
I have quite a bit of experience with Phenibut HCL orally.
I've taken doses from 500mg to 4 grams. Have always practiced proper usage (keeping doses spaced correctly). I've snorted quite a few things in my time ranging from ketamine to DMT to cocaine to methamphetamine. I've tried about every popularized substance other than the 2C-X's. I decided I wanted to snort Phenibut just to see if it would work. I'd read many places about how acidic it is but no actual reports of insufflation. This is my experience.

I measured out 100mg using my Gemini-20. I split it in to two 50mg lines on my iPad and grabbed a fresh straw. I was completely sober before dosing in order to properly distinguish effects.

T+ 0:00 - 50mg is insufflated up right nostril. FUCK that hurts. Involuntarily started crying out of right eye. Stinging is in my opinion more painful than that of methamphetamine. But it doesn't go away after 10 seconds it just lingers.

T+ 0:04 - Effects becoming apparent now. Noticing a relaxation coming over body as well as subtle euphoria.

T+ 0:10 - Decided to take the other 50mg line. Used same nostril as it already hurt and didn't want to add the same pain to the other side.

T+ 0:30 - Effects from both seem to be peaking now. Feeling extremely relaxed but inebriated. Slight loss of coordination but not too severe. Feels comparable in my experience to 1.5-1.75 grams of Phenibut orally. Decided to turn on some music and started dancing. This continued for about an hour.

T+ 1:30 - Coming down now. Feeling of relaxation still present but overall effects becoming weaker.

T+ 2:00 - No longer any noticable desirable effects other than still feeling relaxed. No noticable comedown, felt very smooth yet abrupt.

Overall: It comes on very quickly compared to orally which can take up to 2 hours without coffee. Only downside is the duration. I haven't tried redosing but am somewhat skeptical due to how quickly Phenibut tolerence gains as well as the fact that you shouldn't take it more than once a week. It may be difficult to decide when to stop redosing in terms of insufflation. I think it may be better suited as an addition to oral once effects come on.
