||(powder / crystals)
I ingested 10 mg of 2C-T-7 orally at aproximately 3:30 pm at a friend's apartment. The onset took about 2.5 - 3 hours. During the onset, about an hour into it, I began to feel slightly nervous, and tense. My body temperature fluctuated, and I found myself sweating on a few occasions, and feeling cold at other times.
Once peak effects had begun we went for a walk around town. I felt less body temperature irregularities, although I had tightness in my chest and stomach. This tightness got worse when laying down, and when I sat up abruptly, it almost turned to nausea. Sitting up for a while and walking around helped with this. As far as visual phenomena, it was fairly mild. I perceived some things to be closer than they actually were, and when staring at a ceiling, the surface of the ceiling appeared to shift around in various ways.
One prominent effect throughout the trip was a reduced ability to use higher reasoning functions (language, problem solving). I felt confused on occasion, and wondered if things I was saying were making sense. At one point, I was looking at a patch of tulips, and said 'hey, look at the pretty roses'. Yes, I am usually fully capable of distinguishing between a rose and a tulip, and after being told that they were tulips, and inspecting them again, I realized my mistake. This may not sound significant, but it illustrates the kinds of things that were disrupted in my cognitive abilities.
I was at baseline at about 7 hours after ingestion, and the only remaining aspect was a pounding headache.
The overall experience was mildly interesting, and had there not been so many physical side-effects, it may have been worth repeating. I could deal with the body load, but I just don't want to. Also, such a significant physical aspect to the chemical indicates to me that there may be something toxic at work. So I'd rather not try my chances with it again.
I am not currently taking any prescription, over the counter, or herbal medications.
