To preface, I have no experience with dissociative drugs, except for one salvia breakthrough. This was my very first experience with any ketamine substance; it happened less than 24 hours ago. I was completely sober going into the experience.
I was completely sober going into the experience.

I was very excited when my package arrived in the mail. So excited, that I just had to dose that same day. I figured that I would take 60mg at first, but felt no effects in the first 10 minutes, so I dosed another 80mg. I now understand that it takes about 30-40 minutes to completely come up on this drug, so redosing this quickly is not a good idea.

(T +0:30) The come up was relatively smooth. Before I knew it, I was feeling very numb. Walking became a bit of a challenge, and to add to the challenge, I was trying to hold myself together in front of my parents. They were leaving soon, so I was not too worried, but in hindsight I dosed a bit too high to be trying to appear sober.

(T +0:45) Once my parents left was when the full effects had kicked in. I was hanging out with my dog, who could tell something was up. Feelings of warmth wrapped over my body, and I remember feeling the numbness in my tongue. Time felt like it was moving slower than usual.

My thoughts shifted towards the universe. I have plenty of experience with psychedelics, and this headspace felt vaguely familiar. If I had to equate it to a feeling of other drugs, it was like the LSD headspace and thought patterns, with a bit of benzodiazepine tranquility, and some of the confusion of THC or maybe mushrooms, plus a whole body numbness that I can only describe like having lidocaine pulsing through my veins. I pondered about society, and I felt very small. The world was not about me as much as it usually is when I am sober. I was retracted from good and bad. Neither one nor the other; I was somewhere in the middle. I could see everything through this lens. Everything made sense, and at the same time I was still confused, and needed to think some more. For a minute, I had one type of feeling or train of thought, and then I was pulled into a different feeling, or a different train of thought. It was very similar to mushrooms in this sense, where I feel as if the ideas crossing my mind are being spoken to me by the mushrooms, and then the idea fizzles out and a new one appears. It was much less conversative than mushrooms, I think if I had a friend with me, we would have both been on our own trains of thought.

There were no classical psychedelic visuals or patterns at this dose. It was getting dark outside, but I am certain that my vision was significantly darker because of the 2-FDCK. It was a bit blurry, and akin to the visual effects of higher doses of alcohol.

The therapeutic effects are worth talking about. I am not a depressed person, but I have my issues just as everybody does. I felt positive about my future, which holds many unknowns. I felt much better about mending the tattered relationship that I have with my father, and I was comfortable being around him on the come up. I felt love for the world, hatred has no place on 2-FDCK. It became clear to me that we are all on a journey of life, together, and that no one being has all the answers. I recently quit smoking cannabis after many years of daily use, within the past two weeks, and I was feeling very positive about this as well.

At some point during the peak I ate a bit, but it was difficult, and took a while to muster up the motivation to do so.

(T +2:00) At roughly two hours after dosing, I was starting to come down.

I was ready to come down, as the feelings which I described above were very strong. It was not scary or anxious in any way, like classical psychedelics can be sometimes, but I was feeling disconnected from my usual self and was ready to come home. I had some confusion at this point still, and was feeling a bit of a headache, but this could be due to a number of things, such as dehydration, as I did a relatively intense workout earlier in the day.

(T +3:35) By this time I was feeling almost entirely myself again, but my headache persisted. It was uncomfortable, but I have experienced worse. I thought about redosing, and got my scale out to measure out another dose, but I put it away as this is my first experience with 2-FDCK and I wanted to ride out the comedown for what it was. I also wanted to sleep at a normal hour.

(T +7:00) By midnight I had fallen asleep.

The next day I woke up with no headache, feeling normal. There might be a light afterglow, but not as strong as the day after a few tabs of LSD or an eighth of shrooms.

Altogether, this was a positive experience. I would not say it was “fun”, but it was not displeasing. I want to try to achieve a “k-hole” at some point, but I am still nervous about it.
