Citation: Michael. "Pure Bliss: An Experience with DOB (exp16653)". Erowid.org. Aug 8, 2002. erowid.org/exp/16653
2 am - swallowed 2.5 mg DOB. it was a pale yellow liquid. the taste was sort of alcoholesque. i have the standard 'o my, what have i done to myself' feeling now that i have actually swallowed it. i also seem to always get a huge body shiver the moment after i dose any psychedelic.
2:30 - perhaps the first alerts? my balance is a bit off. i also seem to have a strange energy in my arms and chest. i also have a familliar cottonmouth feeling that i get from psychs.
2:45 - definite alerts, but i can't really put my finger on what they are. at this point i would compare it to lsd. i have an urge to get up and walk around. i can tell that my note-taking will not last much longer.
3:00 - starting to buzz rather heavily. i am getting scatter-brained, it is hard for me to focus on any one task. getting hints of tracers out of the corner of my eyes.
3:15 definately tripping now. more notes later?
well, i write the rest of this at about 8 pm. i have at this point returned to nearly baseline, except for a clear buzz.
at about 4 am i went to +4. i am left with inadequate words to properly describe the experience. as my mind left my body i entered a state of euphoria that was like a 2 hour orgasm, except that an orgasm was a mere shell of this total euphoria. my mind left my body and i became one with the universe.
the visuals were kaliedescopic in nature, continuously morphing into different forms. i saw fractal-type patterns everywhere. the visuals were astoundingly complex and clear, and i could zoom in and out of the visuals with ease.
at 4:10 i made an attempt to write some notes in a notepad i had on hand. the first note is labelled '4:10 - severe time distortion'. the next page says '4:10 - time still distorted', so that may tell you just how distorted time actually felt. the peak experience felt like it took a year, instead of about 2.5 hours.
the only analogy i can think of to characterize it is how hellen keller described her dreams. she called them 'visions of ineffable beauty'. these progressed until about 6:30, where i began a slow descent back to baseline.
i fell asleep for about 15 minutes at +7, which was disorienting to say the least, as i had absolutely no idea where i was when i woke up. it was actually more like that 15 minutes was just missing from my life.
i had visuals up until about 3 PM, and a pretty heavy buzz untill i fell asleep around +18 (midnight). I woke up around 2 AM, but i felt more tired then anything else.
this is definately a substance that i would try again. i attribute the shorter then normal duration to the fact that i have an extremely fast metabolism. i feel extremely lucky to have had the chance to try this wonderful substance.
the only side effect that i really suffered from was slight vasoconstriction, which was easily solved by walking around, and some slight muscle spasms, which i tend to get on any psychedelic.
