My Intentional Yet Frightening High Dose

Citation:   mindstrengthschemist. "My Intentional Yet Frightening High Dose: An Experience with 4-AcO-DMT (exp98875)". Jul 3, 2018.

150 mg insufflated 4-AcO-DMT (powder / crystals)


[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]

I've had a large amount of experience with drugs and most of all psychedlics in my lifetime, especially for someone my age, and have read many years worth of material on the subject.

It's because of this and my non related and very violent near death experiences that I've come to strongly believe that these experiences have caused my mind realize that there are very few things in this world that frighten me the least bit anymore.

This might seem off subject but its not. I've been a dedicated mixed martial artist for over 20 years. Aside from my religion it is the most important and life changing aspect of my being.

I compete professionally now and I truly owe much of it to both the good and the horrifying states of mind I've encountered through psychedelics over the years, and the strongest of these out of body experiences was with 4 aco dmt.

My first experience with this substance was overwhelming! I took 150 mg's through the nose. But I had my first pro fight coming up and wanted to numb my mind from the fear of severe injury or death which is a possibility in a cage fight.

Half an hour after I took it, it began to induce a very mdma type of feeling, this was nice but in the next half hour after, it quickly gave me a feeling that I was dying and caused hallucinations so strong that my couniousness quickly left this world, the first thing I remember after that is flying over a huge field of huge glimmering jewels.

After what seemed like months of being in that dimension I and the universe became stagnent. Then my field of vision zoomed out and I saw that the dimension of jewels I had resided in was actually a microscopic ball. I felt a cosmic pressure building immensely and then all of a sudden experienced the loudest sound I've ever heard then the microscopic ball grew infinitely bright and large and something told me that what I was seeing was how this dimension began... It was the big bang. Then time flashed forward and I was told that I was seeing the end of a universe. It was a gigantic horrifyng black hole.

I could see hear and even smell all these things that were never actually there. And there was much more that happened and was experienced before my trip ended, meanwhile in the real world my friend watched my body go into a psychosis that he said looked like something out of the excorcist. He was eventually so frightened that he called an ambulance and had me taken to a hospital. Hours later when I regained countiousness I felt back to normal and had a new appreciation for life.

I had the experience I wanted and two weeks later won my fight with no anxiety experienced before or during the tournament. What happened to me was unique and very worthwhile.

-thank you for reading
