I reicieved this DOB under the false idea that it was acid. Me and some friends bought 12 doses, and the connect put them in a breath mint dropper-bottle. The intention was to save the doses for the upcoming Coachella Music Festival, only a couple weeks away. One weekend in Big Bear we each took one drop on one jelly bean per person, still under the assumption that this was LSD. None of us really had any perception changes.
Flash forward to Sunday April 19th, 2009. I have four or so drops of the supposed 'acid' in my possesion. I called the dealer and it turns out that we purchased ultra-rare DOB. Unfortunately, my friends wanted nothing to do with this unknown chemical (their loss!) and I had extra doses on my hands. I tried to sell a couple to no avail, so I ended up with the leftovers at Coachella.
It had already been an intense weekend. I had hippy-flipped the day before (shrooms and ecstasy) and I wanted a good fry. It was the hottest day in the desert that weekend, peaking around 103 degrees. I dosed myself with 3 - 4 drops in the parking lot about an hour before entering the festival for the last time that weekend. A total of three hours after ingestion, I started feeling the effects. This was around 4:30 pm.
Slowly but surely I was having trails (afterimages) with moving objects, especially flies, and the grass had a gorgeous color and texture. The body high came on slowly and over the next few hours I was climbing into a state of complete and utter bliss. The desert skyline was unfolding into colors so beautiful I couldnt name them, shades of aqua and pink and purple. Everything around me was so sharp and colorful and exuberant and sexy! I watched Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs perform around 6 pm, and that's when things got more intense.
After the Yeah Yeah Yeahs we watched a psychedelic vaudeville cirque perform a glorious number, with trippy costumes and facial expressions. It was amazing. I was slackjawed with awe during the entire performance. Everything around me was perfect as the sun was setting - it was as though this was my own personal Wonderland, everything created to make my trip perfect.
My friends were fawning over me, hanging off my words and smiling back at my obviously goofy grin. We Walked around for hours in awe of the beauty and the music and the art. After dark the two twin Tesla coils battled against the sky while strategically placed beams of light mimicked shooting stars and searchlights. Then by some trickery the entire sky turned red. I am sure it was not just me tripping out, everyone stopped and stared! It was so creepy, and amazing! I was seriously frying hard by this time, the DOB made it all so intense and wonderfully frighteningly beautiful!
Then We sat and watched The Cure Play for hours. I went back to the campsite and could not sleep. Still hallucinating, I wandered around the campsite. Finally it was midnight, everyone was celebrating 4:20 and I stumbled back into camp. My friend thankfully had an atavan, the medical drug used to end a trip and put one to sleep. Hours later, I fell asleep.
I woke up with mild halluciantins and moderate dehydration.
I reveled in the strength of my character. DOB is not a drug I will play around with. I feel that I took a double dosage, and that had I not taken the Atavan, I would have been tripping for two days straight.
DOB is an amazing, beautiful and rare chemical.
