Background: I've been into legal highs or research chemicals since back when I was in college when I was also into more illicit activities. I enjoyed a lot of LSD, coke, meth, and MDMA use in my clubbing days, but it's been years since I've even seen them. As I've gotten married and into my career AKA 'adulthood', I've quit things that could wreck that, being content with the occasional safe buzz. Since then I've stuck to the periodic RC (as in once a year or so). I watched the Bath Salt craze which was banned quickly here in Louisiana and saw bad things come from it so don't miss it, but have to admit I partook of the easy access to stimulants as I have bad ADD and have always had an affinity towards them. Most of my RC experiences have leaned towards the underwhelming or psychedelic'ish like 5-meo-xxx or 2CT7 and last too long or just aren't fun so I'm usually once and done, just for the experience or for something different.
Compound: Came in small zip bag labeled DMC. Tannish (not white), clumpy powder with a crystal sheen and strong chemical smell. Bought from UK research chem co. and arrived by mail in 8 days. Paid about $48US with shipping for 3g. I have no verification of contents or purity and it doesn't really look like the few pics I've found online which looked more fine and white, so take this for what it's worth.
0:00 - I laid out about 90mg in a line and snorted. No immediate effects and it burns so maybe slight buzz from that sensation. Worried that I saw no reports of burning.
0:05 - Feel something for sure, but it's still light. My nose is a little numb and it isn't burning anymore so maybe it is DMC. Nose dripping, but not excessive. Smells familiar and I bet I've been sold this before as something else.
0:15 - Definite buzz, but less rush or euphoria than just general stimulation. If this was coke I'd want my money back, but I've seen stuff cut so bad it was this weak so still interesting based on legality* and price. Decided to insulfate a 50mg line.
1:00 - It peaked at the 15-20 min mark and has held pretty steady since then so tried a 110mg line.
1:20 - Hasn't really improved the euphoria only a little more stimulant effect so aparently won't be easy to simulate effects of good coke with higher doses. At this point feeling more tension (jaw, neck, breathing, chest, etc...) for the level of buzz than coke so have to make myself avoid the lure of redosing too soon. Mouth dry and jaw is working and I wish I had gum or still smoked cigs. I can't really direct the energy and I'm fidgity and unfocused with trouble finding enjoyable tasks.
2:00 - Seems like I've come down some, but still feeling effects obviously. This seems short based on reports I've read so again casts doubt on the contents. Haven't really done anything productive this whole time and just feeling the buzz.
2:30 - Haven't come down totally, but euphoria is mostly gone so probably redose soon. Stays pretty steady over an hour or so per dose. Can't really get beyond a good buzz i.e. similar to having done something good about 5 hours ago. Slow smooth come on and fade seem in line with DMC reports.
Conclusion: Assuming this is DMC it's a mixed experience. Kind of teases at more. The come down is smooth and slow so isn't an issue as much as wanting a stronger buzz and identifying when I've peaked since there isn't a rush so much as a gentle come on. I could see this being dangerous if people tried to chase the effects of good coke as DMC supposedly has lighter, but similar negative cardio effects. This could be interesting for those with self control who can enjoy what it offers. Has somewhat of a more distracted feel and I'm not as focused or clear headed for getting anything productive done as I can be with other compounds which is a bit of a letdown. Wife doesn't mind my experiments as much when I knock out the honey-do list ;)
