Last summer three of my friends and I went to a music festival in West Virginia. It was my first festival, and I was very excited to see what it was all about. On Friday night, we had planned to take 20 mg each of 2C-B that my friend had brought straight from Cali. I had done some research and thought it sounded interesting, like something I would really enjoy.
Friday rolled around, and I woke with a bit of anxiety. I tend to get nervous very easily, and with that I deal with panicky feelings and upset stomach, which sucks but I'm used to it at this point. While some may say that's a bad way to go into a trip, I have gotten to the point where I expect my body to react that way, and just know that for me thatís part of it. It doesnít influence my trip negatively. It had began raining early in the day, and stay damp until the sun went down, and since we were on a mountaintop, it got windy and pretty chilly at night. On top of that, I had a bad sunburn that had sort of just made itself known that day, so I felt sort of like I had a fever with cold-chills and whatnot. We took our capsules right before it got totally dark and waited to feel the effects.
The come-up was very smooth and barely noticeable, really. The others were having a good time, it seemed, just sitting and watching the band play. I, however, was not having a good time at all because I was so physically uncomfortable. I couldnít get warm, the cold wind was cruel, and I had damp clothes on sunburned skin. I couldnít even focus on the other effects of the drug because of this. I did notice that crowd seemed unrealistically expansive and distant.
Finally, I had to just go back to our campsite. Iím normally not one to be the spoil-sport, but the discomfort level was pretty high
the discomfort level was pretty high
. On the walk back, my blood started flowing and I began to warm up and feel better. I began to notice how odd the fog looked. It was sort of solid, while still obviously transparent. It was very strange to see people walking through and out of the fog with glow sticks on, and the streetlights glowed far through it. It all had a somewhat eerie feeling, but it was pleasant. I felt like a ghost that no one could see, but I could watch them. I felt withdrawn.
When we got back to the tent, we changed into dry clothes, snuggled up, and put on some chill music. I was beginning to feel better and better, and we stared at the sky through the tent flap. It looked sort of like it does when it snows, like a glowing purple. We began rubbing each other and kissing, and that immediately took away all negative physical symptoms and replaced them with warm euphoric feelings. We made love, and it was so physically and emotionally intense. I found it easy to orgasm, while almost any other drug makes it nearly impossible. When I did, I felt like I shot up and visited the moon briefly.
I would definitely try this substance again. I think under better circumstances, I would have really enjoyed it. I would like to give it another go, and really get to know it better. I do think being warm/cozy/comfortable is key. It made me sort of sleepy, but once I was up and moving I had plenty of energy, so I donít think I need to lay around in bed the whole time.
