A Great Research Chemical

T+ 0:00
50 mg oral 5-IT (powder / crystals)
  T+ 4:00 3 drops oral Benzodiazepines  
I bought it from a reputable source, who gave me also an indication on the dose to use for research (50mg). I put 50-60 mg in a glass with orange juice, the taste is not so bad.

I was a little tired when I took the 5-IT but after 15 mins the tiredness passed. After 30 mins the effect was stronger: I felt speedy and determined so I went in Internet listening to music in the meanwhile.

After 1 hour I appreciated more the rhythm and a sense of euphoria was inside of me. This state lasted for about 3 hours with increased heart rate and blood pressure. The sensation was that I could do everything I wanted. Listening to techno/house music I didn't resist moving my arms (I was seated), feeling the rhythm. The only negative effect was a sense of anxiety but it made me feel more alive however.

4 hours after the drink ;) began a very slow comedown and I was very anxious so I took 3 drops of an anxiolytic (--> better).

The effect of 5-IT lasts a long time, from 8 to 12 hours and the risk is to go to bed and stay awake all night long. However, taking a dose of 100 mg probably the effect could be a great euphoria, but your heart will go too fast and this is dangerous. I think 5-IT could be a great antidepressant but I'm not sure about its non-neurotoxicity.

The day after I felt relaxed but a little depressed (maybe also from the medicines taken to sleep).

In conclusion: for me 5-IT is A GREAT RC !!!
