DOSE:
T+ 0:00
100 mg oral Modafinil (pill / tablet)
  T+ 5:30   oral Cannabis (edible / food)
  T+ 6:30   oral Cannabis (edible / food)
  T+ 6:30 300 mg oral Theanine  

BODY WEIGHT: 86 kg


Background: An experienced drug user, psychedelics and stimulants. At this stage no stimulants have been consumed in the past 3 years, ceased use after a multi-month 4mmc binge.

T-0:30 Ate a fairly heavy lunch

T 0:00 Consumed 100mg modafinil in pill form

T+0:30 Starting to feel something, stomach is unsettled compared to baseline

T+1:00 Stomach more unsettled, had to visit the loo. Slightly elevated heart rate, had been listening to podcast but removed earphones due to slight sensory overload

T+1:30 Feel good, earphones back in, have fully come up now. Mind very clear, slight pleasurable feeling, am very happy at how productive I am currently in my work.

T+3:00 Still feel good and stimulated, continued increased productivity. Noticing small pleasurable waves roughly every 40 minutes. Slight increase in desire to socialize.

T+4:30 Finish work, still feeling stimulated though slightly less than before.

T+5:30 Stimulation starting to subside, consume 20mg cannabis edible. No pleasurable waves since T 4:30

T+6:00 Eat some food, hunger had been suppressed until this point. Was able to eat a normal portion size.

T+6:30 All stimulation faded, slight buzzing feeling in limbs, consume 300mg L-Theanine and another 20mg edible.

T+7:00 Start feeling a slight comedown, slight increase in irritability.

T+11:00 Comedown has subsided. Was a mild inconvenience at this dose, I imagine any greater dose would have resulted in a more unbearable comedown.

I'd consider this experience to be compared to consuming a small dose of speed, with propensity to redose reduced equal to the reduction in pleasurable sensation, i.e. reduce dopamine hit of speed by 40% = Modafinil (IMO)

Summary: Functional, yet enjoyable stimulant. Has potential for addiction, though less so when compared to other stimulants tried.
