20 mg oral 2C-E (powder / crystals)
    smoked Cannabis (plant material)


After going to the movies to celebrate my girlsfriends birthday I ran into one of her friends who we had used to hang out with a lot the last summer. We went to a lot of parties together and had smoked weed together several times. He told us about some 2ce he had that he was having difficultly moving.

I told him I wanted some but he hadn't brought any with him to the movies so I agreed to meet him the next day. But I kept this very discrete because my girlfriend expressed a disinterest and dislike of anything not weed or booze. Our friends use of some of these drugs made her uncomfortable and I didn't want to be judged or dumped but still I didn't want to miss this experience.
Even though I didn't have the foggiest about this entheogen I googled it that night and woke up with a Phd in research chemicals.

I met him the next afternoon and bought 20mg of the 2ce. I asked him how much I should take he said he usually takes it all. He said it would be ok and I trusted his wisdom because after all my familiarity with tripping was 0.

I decided it was too late to take it then because I wanted to ingest it while it was sunny so I could enjoy whatever Indore or outdoor activity I would wish.

I woke up at 7 the following morning and got ready. Dressing comfortably in shorts and a tee. At about 10 I feel like I'm ready so I go to my room and crush the capsule on my desk picking out fragments to insure all I get is the powder. I dabbed it on my tongue with my fingers and then swirled it around my tongue.

I sit down to watch Tv when two of my buddies call me up wanted to come smoke a joint with them by this time its almost 11. I told my friends about what my girlfriends friend had given me and ask for one of them to pick me up so wouldn't have to drive. I didn't feel any effects yet but I didn't want to get risky. They arrived at my house shortly and picked me up then we drove to one of my friends houses. I was familiar with his house so I was ok with this.

We get there and smoke the joint in his backyard.

In retrospect this could've been when the effects started. Originally I just felt myself getting high but after about two more hits it started to change. I could only pick up the effects of the weed but everything looked different just not right to me. I got very uneasy and pannicy. I didn't tell my friends though because I just thought I was just way too high. It became more difficult to follow in the conversations until eventually I just felt closed of from the other two on many levels. This closed of feeling extended to everything and the experience got more intense.

By this time I felt waves of energy washing through my body it was a very intense feeling something unlike anything else I had every felt it was magic. It was just all a little too much.

I suddenly had difficult knotting in my stomach that would come and wane but when it was noticeable it wasn't overwhelming. I expected a lot worse from reading about the body load.

I got to a point where I felt like I would lose it if I stayed here, so I got my friends to take me back to my house. They asked if I would be ok I was still confident I would be ok so I had them take me home.

[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]

On the way back in the car I had my first several hallucinations.  I was sitting passenger and from the corner of my eye I saw my friend moving a lot so I looked over and I saw him and about 6 or 7 Travers of him they seemed to move around his figure in a triangular path. Out the windshield I looked at the road and noticed puddles in the road which was odd because it hadn't rained. When I thought of this the puddles turned to patches of a night sky with very dull stars on the road and the.clouds in the sky took on the Colorado of the pavement. As fast as the switch had came it went. I began to start feeling pretty nauseated.  Another vision came to me before I got back to my house a tree out of my window sprung trunk leaves and all out of the ground like a pop up book picture would spring up.

Once I was home I rushed upstairs to our bathroom and I threw up but I didn't feel sick anymore and the agitation I was suffering earlier seemed to clear a little but not fully.  I blame this on the intensity of the experience for me.

For the rest of the trip I stayed in my house. I sat downstairs watching Tv but I couldn't follow the program it made no sense I could tell some of the color I was perceiving wasn't the actual color in the show. The video information wasn't being processed in my state so I lost interest in Tv and went upsatirs to sit on my futon and listen to some tunes.

In my room is where I stayed for the rest of my trip because it was becoming harder for me to walk about. I put on music and felt it so fully it was insane to me. The techno music made me feel like a robot it seemed to become my identity I was the song after a few seconds of listening. The next song to come on was some screaming music I had to turn off because I felt this song the same way I had the first but the heavy music made me feel like a demonic being and I decided to just shut off the music on my laptop.

I became very sedentary after this and started to be effected by hot flashes and cold chills like a fever so I wrapped up in a quilt. The vintage patterns of my greatgrandmothers quilt had me in.awe for a while as patterns snaked and crawled. During one of these cold chills I laid back because my stomach was aching. When I closed my eyes I saw a complicated gyro-like machine free floating with many abstract shaped pieces that were all different colors.  I was stunned by the intricacy of this machine the pieces whirred like clockwork each moving the next perpetually.

I had many of these cevs and many more that resembled rangoli.

But the most notable of these cevs were these intense out of body experiences I had. One I was spectating earth before any humans I watched as in the next few seconds the world was developed civilizations and cities sprung up and metropolises formed. The most stirring part of this vision was how accurate the continents were. It was a perfect representation the types of buildings that sprung up even fit the styles of the countries they came out of.

The next most memorable vision was almost spiritual to me and it set the mood for the whole rest of my trip and has stuck with me to this day I still contemplate the meaning. I was again out of my body spectating a panoramic view of megalithic rows supported by robust columns and on these stone rows were silhouettes of a menagerie of animals I recognized the creatures were all proportionate to each other I spotted a whale, a giraffe, and a buffalo among the thousands of creatures. And among these creatures there were many I didn't recognize, some flat weren't logic with odd shaped heads some with weird growths on their head some with odd limbs like large forelegs and way smaller hindlegs. All of this came to me within a blink. The amount of information that my mind was blasting was unreal.

On the whole I enjoyed my experience with 2ce but I wouldn't do it again. Some points in my experience were too intense but never scary just very different from reality. After the trip I lost the desire to smoke weed an odd after effect. I was tired the next morning but I really didn't get more than 5 hrs sleep so I think that was the culprit. I found the 2ce experiences to incredibly introspective as well as spiritual. After the trip I felt renewed but I also felt like I lost my place in the world. I just felt off for a few weeks. But this just pushed me to quit waiting and made me start carving my own place in the world.
