It seems to be a theme in my research on this substance that people are seeking a coke alternative when they find it and well... I'm no different.

TLDR: It's brilliant, and definitely a viable coke alternative. Clean is the word you will see in NEP reports and seems to be completely true at appropriate doses.

Dosing is very important to ensure a good time. I don't have milligram scales and the first dose was not a great overall experience as a result. I still eyeballed the second but had about 30% as much and that solved the issues completely.

If you have done 2C-B or something like that at around 30mg, your initial dose should look like something like that, NOT a small coke line. Lol.

[Erowid Note: Two samples of powder (even of the same chemical) with equivalent volumes won't necessarily weigh the same. For this reason, eyeballing is an inaccurate and potentially dangerous method of measuring, particularly for substances that are active in very small amounts. See this article on The Importance of Measured Doses.]
My first attempt around 10 days previously resulted in 30 mins of coke/MDMA like body high and mind state, which was very nice, however after 30 mins transitioned into far too much of a 'rushy' and sweaty experience where I could not keep still, and just didn't feel great. I would compare the feeling to a coke comedown, but with the 'rushy' bit still there. It was a hot night and I didn't have adequate cooling and that definitely contributed, I find NEP to easily induce vasoconstriction, just to the point of making a warm room unbearable.

I had eyeballed the first dose too high, I took the equivalent of a small line of coke, which must have been at least in the range of 50mg.

Tried it again today, now fully down, having a drink many hours later, no comedown detectable, no moreishness and urge to redose like coke.

I had been doing some low quality speed earlier in the night, but it really was low quality and I hadn't touched it for over an hour.

T 00:00:
Insufflated an estimated ~25mg

It has a little bit of a kick up the nose, nothing major, pain gone in 2 mins.

T 00:05:
Feeling good, this drug seems to have a quick response that is a bit more MDMA like, which appears in the first 5-20 mins. Stim poo neccesary at this point :P

T: 00:25
Watching a podcast, feeling pretty fantastic at this point, I was a bit worried about getting all sweaty and feeling bad again but at this point I am happy that I've nailed the dose as things are still getting better. Laughing at myself for doing far too much the first time like an idiot.

T 00:45:
Wow this is really smooth, I just feel nice, the euphoria is not quite at the level of coke but it's totally compensated for by the lack of nasty coke side effects and consistency (I start clucking for another line after 15-20 mins on most coke, no need at all here), in addition it has a MDMA-like body feel at the same time.

T 01:20:
Basically consistent for the last 45 mins. I have been watching a podcast the entire time and everything was funnier and more entertaining that usual, I like watching comedy specials on coke and this definitely compares.

At this point it starts subtly tailing off, very subtle, I just kind of become aware that I am now having only 90% as much fun as I was 10 mins ago, and that's how I know, no nasty junky feeling or sudden onset comedown, I absolutely could have stopped here but my podcast is 4 hours long and I don't have anything else to do so why not.

T 01:30:
I re-dose with just slightly more, once again insufflated.

T 03:00
Nothing different to report, exactly the same trajectory and effects, at the end I decide I want to get some work some tomorrow so I best stop now, and it's an easy decision. Jesus Christ the lengths I have gone to to get more coke, this is a blissful comedown, if you can even call it that.

T 04:00 I am not ready to sleep and suddenly have the urge to start that work, which I had been thinking about and planning a little throughout the night.

T 08:00 I have been productively programming and reading documentation for hours. Not at full capacity but totally useful, I have done similar things once or twice after stims before but I was pushing myself or using it as a way to stay awake to fix my sleeping pattern, this was totally natural and not forced, it just left me in a state where I was totally able and in fact willing to function as a normal human being, unusual for me and stims.


This stuff is great. Glad I researched it again. It's seriously seriously good just don't take a small coke line's worth!
