The following is a record of one of my experiences with 4-aco-dmt.
DISCLAIMER: I am a reckless dumbass, please don't be like me. You might seriously hurt yourself. Also I was provided the dose by an acquaintance (he measured it out) and have no idea how he does that; the dosage might be inaccurate.
Slept ~3am to 10:30am (7.5 hours)
Took a multivitamin and 200mg caffeine in the morning, as is routine for me. Ate some liver sausage with 2/3rds of a bottle of non-alcoholic red wine.
Dose swallowed at 5:40pm (30mg 4-aco-dmt)
The dose was swallowed in the early evening after eating some garlicky mashed potatoes with decaf green tea. Hopefully I don't puke those taters up, although it is a nontrivial possibility.
Context/mood: a little tired. Had a headache and brutal allergies all day. My sinuses are on fire. I'm hoping that the vasoconstriction during the trip will stop my relentless sinus symptoms. Basically, I'm mentally content but physically kinda hurting today. Also I'm kinda groggy from taking a high dose of cannabis edibles late last night, but totally functional otherwise.
Took a lot of ginger extract. Starting to feel the come up. Dealing with some chores before it really starts to hit.
Took a gram of aspirin (to help with the upcoming vasoconstriction and muscle tightness). I'm dealing with some stomach discomfort, but psychologically the trip is coming on relatively slow. Starting to get mild visuals though.
Oh fuck this stuff is hitting hard now. I can barely type. I'm gonna have a pint of ale to take the edge off and balance this out.
Intense psychological fuckery for the last half hour. Really deep in thought about various subjects like religion, meaning, life, and things of that nature.
I spent the last two hours in deep intense thought and introspection about many things. The direction of my life and stuff like that. Thankfully the stomach issues subsided (very very grateful for that – I expected much worse). Getting some muscle tightness though, and some joint pain but that happens to me nearly every day anyway and it's hard to parse the signals. I'm having a pint of strong IPA and I think I'm gonna dance for a bit and do some stretches.
Still deep in thought. Dealing with bad muscle tension that's causing a lot of pain in my back. Bruxism too.
Drinking another pint of ale. Snacking on some rye crackers. I can't emphasize enough how pleasantly surprised I am by the lack of gastrointestinal issues on this trip. I even felt hungry around T+5, despite eating right before dosing, which is very unusual for me and I think substantiates the efficacy of ginger extract in this regard. Also, psychologically and intellectually this trip was very productive. I was able to think clearly and deeply about many personal issues and determine a logical path forwards and plan into the future. Very good intellectual payoff today. I barely paid any attention to the hallucinations, but they were beautifully intricate when I did (note: tripping while the sun is still up is kinda suboptimal for appreciating psychedelic-induced hallucination – nighttime, or perfect darkness, is way better for this). Still feeling really bad muscle tension and back/joint pain though, despite doing many stretches. Bruxism continues as well. Feeling tired – I just let out a reflexive yawn.
Downed ~80mg THC orally / kinda sublingually via cannabis oil. It should be noted that THC effects are highly tolerance-dependent and that, ordinarily, 10mg would incapacitate me if I did not have a tolerance; don't be like me. Another thing I wanted to mention is that I ran my air conditioner and fan on max throughout this trip and felt like I was overheating multiple times, but it's a hot summer day and I would probably feel this way sober anyway; it's hard to parse the signals. Joint/back pain continues.
Also I really need some durable fidget/autism toys for when I'm tripping – this is far from the first pair of pants I've destroyed by white-knuckling the thighs and tightly tearing at the fabric because I have nothing else to grab onto. I really need like a huge stress ball or putty or something to do with my hands. I literally destroy at least one fabric item whenever I trip because I have nothing else to grab onto.
Drinking a pint of delicious black IPA. Some stomach pain but I think I'm just super hungry. Think I'm gonna make some spicy ramen. Yeah, that sounds nice right now.
I ate the spicy ramen. Feeling great but tired. Listening to some nice low-tempo music and chilling. Nicely drunk and high. Very nice and peaceful. I'm drifting off to some nice slow acoustic guitar. It's very nice. Today was a good day. Also worth noting that my nightmarish allergy sinus symptoms completely disappeared as soon as the trip started and continue to be absent, as hypothesized. Bruxism still continues. Vasoconstriction continues – more-efficacious countermeasures to this should be explored.
I fell asleep sometime around T+10h.
