I am a 19 year old male, with experience in mdma, mushrooms, cocaine, amphetamines, 2c-e, 2c-b, dmt, lsd, ketamine, spice products, marijuana, and various pills.
Onto the story. I picked up a 500 milligram vial of 'bath salts'. Brand name 'Eight Ballz'.
I had to visit my mom, so i decided i would test out this new substance while in her town. I got to her house, settled down, and decided to go with a walk. Went to a park and settled down behind some trees, making sure nobody would see. I dumped out a very large line, as i later found out in later experiences. Not sure how much mdpv was actually in this particular blend, but I cut it out and insufflated it.
Two samples of powder (even of the same chemical) with equivalent volumes won't necessarily weigh the same. For this reason, eyeballing is an inaccurate and potentially dangerous method of measuring, particularly for substances that are active in very small amounts.
See this article on The Importance of Measured Doses.]
Very little burn, and within 30 seconds, felt a rushing, 1.5-3 minutes into my adventure, felt as if I had insufflated the largest dose of cocaine in my entire life. I walked around, experiencing one of the greatest euphorias of my life. Easily cutting out oxycodone. Possibly a tiny bit more euphoric than MDMA, but far too speedy, (in my opinion). I progressively felt as if I had poisoned myself.
This soon progressed to extreme nausea, leading to me dry heaving in the middle of the street. Shortly after drinking a small amount of water (drinking or eating anything is extremely unpleasant on MDPV, I have found.) Soon after this episode, I calmed down enough for the euphoria to shine brightly again. I was singing in the streets to my music playing, talked to a friend on the phone about how amazing I felt, and visited an old girlfriend. Attempted sexual relations, but heart was racing far too fast, and I knew it would be extrememly dangerous, so I decided on returning home.
Fortunately my mother was asleep, so I slipped into my room quietly and attempted sleep. T+3.5 hours.
As time went on, the euphoria dissipated and left me feeling empty and depressed. Eyes unable to close for more than 3 seconds top. So I laid in my bed, hating my life, unable to sleep until approximately T+10.5 hours. A horrific price to pay for astounding euphoria and joy. Would need alprazolam or diazepam to attempt again in an effort to sleep if I were to try again. I do not believe it is a good idea.
I'm going to stay away from this substance, as future adventures left me fiending for days, giving in multiple times and staying up for 2 days, combining this with marijuana, cigarettes, MDMA, and alcohol. Should have researched more, but I had an invincibility complex at the time. I research on just about everything else online. Safety first people! Do not attempt to experience anything like this as I believe I should have been in the hospital or taking anxiolitics.
Anyways, just thought I would share with and warn people of my experience. Safe tripping! <3
