First Time DCK Dose and After Effects

I read some reports on the effects of Ketamine and was interested to try chemicals in the Ketamine class. I was primarily interested in the anti-anxiety/anti-depressant properties of these substances. I found DCK available through an online source and decided to give it a try. I had never tried Ketamine or DCK before so was not exactly sure what to expect other than it should have dissociative aesthetic like properties. The DCK appearance was slightly off white (light tan/grey) and granular, not familiar with the substance so was unsure of what the appearance should look like.

Setting / Mindset / Dosing
I looked up approximate doses (10-50mg) and decided to do the smart thing and start low (especially considering that purity of substance was untested and I wasnít familiar with DCK or Ketamine). I took DCK in my apartment intending to just watch some videos, I figured if it was too much to handle that way I could just lay down and not have to deal with anything. I was pretty relaxed the night I took it, was basically getting ready for bed. The night that I dosed, I drank 3-4 beers earlier that evening. Iím a regular beer drinker and I was not really tipsy from that amount. I started by snorting a small key bump and ended up doing 2 more over the course of the evening. I didnít have a scale to weight the DCK out so I was estimating based on the amount in the bag, If I had to guess I would say I took somewhere between 20 and 50mg in total spread across 3 bumps.

After snorting the DCK I got a mild burning sensation in my nostrils and quickly realised that the drip from the DCK tastes pretty horrible and bitter (similar to molly). Luckily I had some water bottles in my fridge that I drank over course of the evening to get rid of the taste from the nasal drip. The onset was fairly quick and came with a light headed euphoria and an inability to focus well. I could focus on the videos if I tried, by found myself zoning out a lot. At the same time I wasnít sleepy or anything. This was a feature that I didnít realise about DCK, it has almost a stimulant like quality, not so much like speed, but more like a psychedelic stimulation where your brain is just going. Certainly reached an introspective state similar to psychedelics like LSD/psilocybin. There were some subtle visuals primarily with closed eyes but the visuals were not really similar to what Iíve experienced from LSD/mushrooms. The experience seemed to come in waves and overall was a pleasant feeling, I started reading deeper meanings into the shows I was watching and reached a similar mental state that Iíve reached on LSD/mushrooms: realisation that life is short and that connections with other humans is crucial, that our fears in life are all self-imposed. Maybe a few melancholy moments, but certainly not a bad trip by any means. Introspective and meditative are the words that I would use to describe the majority of the experience. I noticed that I had to go to pee pretty frequently but this could be because I was drinking water pretty regularly (plus the few beers from earlier). When I got up I noticed that my legs were pretty wobbly and walking wasnít that easy. I wasnít falling down or anything but I can imagine that if I had used a higher dose I might have some issues. I had a mild out of body like feeling when I was walking around my apartment. Definitely not something I would take outside my home unless I was much more familiar with the effects.

Come Down and After effects
One thing that I didnít really appreciate was the stimulant-like properties of DCK, I thought that taking a bit more would make me tired and help me get to sleep. This was definitely not the case for me and I found myself having trouble getting to sleep. In hindsight I should have done more research on the effects before I dosed. I would say I was experiencing a high for at least 4-5 hours. Eventually I decided I needed to get to sleep or I would feel horrible the next day so I took a melatonin, not sure how much that helped but eventually I was able to get to sleep. When I woke up the next morning I was still feeling the effects and I was a little worried that I wouldnít be ok to go to work in the afternoon. By the time I had to head in the effects had dwindled to just being a bit fuzzy headed. I wasnít able to focus that well but still able to get things done.

Next time I dose DCK I will definitely start earlier with the expectation that the high will last about 5 hours with a noticeable hangover that lasts for probably 8-12 hours. I couldnít find other reports describing extended after effects for DCK and thatís part of the reason I wanted to put this info out there.
