    repeated smoked Cannabis (plant material)


I recently came across some research chemical online vendors and decided to give 2C-I a shot.

Just as a slight background- I'm 21 years old, male, and have much experience with altered states of consciousness. I have done LSD about 50 times, many of them at high doses. I have used psilocybin mushrooms roughly ten times, DMT about 8 times, and I've tried 2C-B, 2C-E, and now 2C-I. I am also on Effexor XR 225mg daily.

A few days ago, I bought a cheap scale accurate to the milligram off eBay a few days ago and weighed out 20mg of the chemical. Looking back, I should have started at a much lower dosage. I didn't think to keep a pen and paper with me so I'll keep this brief.

The first 9 hours were a decent experience. I took about two hours to fully come up on it. The side effects were tolerable for a psychedelic, mostly consisting of slight gastrointestinal discomfort and this odd feeling in my left foot like I was stepping on something uncomfortable.

I get far more visual effects out of psychedelics when used in conjunction with marijuana, so I always blaze my ass off while tripping. The visuals were distinct from those of most other hallucinogens in a really bizarre way.

After what I would consider the peak of my experience, I continued tripping for 24+ hours but only very lightly. Whenever I looked at another person's face I would get the most interesting visual distortions. It looked like someone was playing around with photoshop tools when I looked at others. While watching TV I could watch in 3D without glasses. The people on TV looked like they were stretching out towards me... weird.

These two visual effects have lingered on for 3 days now and I'm ready to say that they are, for the most part, gone.

2C-I was not exactly how I expected seeing how the other two carbons have a light MDMA happy feel to them. This was entirely psychedelic, and it was an experience that lasted far longer than I would have liked or expected. I couldn't sleep for, like I said, over 24 hours after ingesting.

I have had freak acid trips last several days, but I knew what to expect from that. Perhaps I was just overly sensitive to 2C-I or did too high of a dose. Overall I would say that this was a strange experience which I don't feel compelled to repeat anytime soon, mostly because of the duration.
