My first time with a hallucinogenic substance didn't occur until I was 45 years old. My wife and I started cautiously with 100mcg of 1P-LSD each the first time. Over the coming months, we slowly increased the dose until we found our sweet spots. For me, that was 400mcg. We have probably tripped upwards of 20 times together.
My experiences with 1P generally follow a fairly set schedule where the time is divided three ways. The first four hours are the "come up". The next four hours are the "plateau". And the final four hours are the "come down". My favourite is definitely the "come up".
Typically, 30 to 45 minutes after ingestion, I start to feel the effects. By the 90 minute mark time has started to stretch and my mind and body are going through a transformation. I have described it as "rough" or "bumpy". I really like this part. This point to the four hour mark feels like twice or three times the length of time. Usually at four hours in, I am clear headed enough to order pizza.
I give this background not because it is in any way interesting; but because my latest experience did not follow this progression at all.
T-01:00 In preparation for this trip, I ingest 400mg of sulbutiamine. From what I've read, it is great for mood stabilization. I have taken it by itself before and noticed a calming effect.
T+00:00 I put 400mcg of 1P under my tongue for 20 minutes before chewing it and swallowing. (I honestly hate this part. Paper in my mouth make me feel queasy.)
T+00:45 My stucco ceiling starts to "dance". This is expected and I am looking forward to enjoying this trip. My wife and I continue to watch TV.
T+01:00 The "roughness" starts to come on. It seems a little lighter than usual. I chalk it up to the sulbutiamine.
T+02:00 The "roughness" sputters to a halt. I feel as though I have plateaued. Checking the time, I calculate that its two hours early. I am a little disappointed because my "bumpy" come up has been cut short.
The remainder of the trip was about the same "smoothness" that I achieved at the two hour mark. I still enjoyed the experience, but I don't think I'll be supplementing with sulbutiamine again.
