One day, my friend, whom I will refer to as C, and I got a hold of 105 mg of 4-aco-dmt fumarate. Unlike my friend who has had several experiences with psychedelics already, I have had none. We researched the dosage, and used a milligram scale and some gel pill capsules to make 20 capsules with relatively 3-6 milligrams in each capsule. The approximately is due to the accuracy of the scale.

At about 2:45 pm C and I popped our capsules. I took 2 of the 3-6 milligram pills and C only took 1 to try. We began playing video games immediately which is what we did for approximately 1 hour. It was about 3:45 when I started noticing that I just didn't feel 'right', not sick or anything but different. C had not noticed any effects at the time. It was about 20 minutes after this when I started to notice that colors began to appear very vibrant, and I was starting to get very giggly. On this note, the come up was very subtle. It didn't really seem as if I was tripping. I don't know if this was because I was a first timer and expected something different or not. None the less, I was definitely starting to trip.

It was about 4:30 when I decided I wanted to kick the bright colors up a notch and take another capsule. Soon after taking the third capsule I was in the mindset that I was tripping. C began to notice a slight feeling in his head and 15 minutes later he decided to take another capsule to get more of the effects that I was experiencing.

At this point in time during my trip I was having difficulties finishing sentences. I would forget words or get distracted the slightest bit and not finish. C found this hilarious, and he oftentimes would finish my sentences for me. The way I explained what was happening to C was that my thought train was getting knocked off its tracks.

The next part is tricky to understand because what was going on in my head was very interesting and I remember almost all of it. This is where the extreme feelings of Euphoria and happiness were coming from. What was going on was that I would have random thoughts in my head that would make connections and when these connections would happen, I would get really happy and I stayed happy almost the entire time I was tripping. On top of these random connections, I would use and repeat certain words. C found this very interesting.

Finally at about 5:00 pm C began to feel the effects. He first noticed when he looked down and saw the carpeting doing weird things. He pointed it out to me and soon I began seeing the same thing. This was really one of the only visuals that either of us had the whole time. Soon after the carpeting situation, C and I struck up a conversation which turned into what seemed like a super interesting, long conversation. C and I were really enjoying ourselves and we were really enjoying the trip.

At 6:30 we decided it was time to eat. We head out of my dorm room and went over to the school market. Upon arriving to the market, I began to get very anxious. After reflecting on my trip, this is the only time I can remember actually feeling uncomfortable the whole time. The problem was, there were a lot of people around me. On top of this, I knew a lot of the people I saw, and it made me really uncomfortable because I didn't want them to know I was tripping. The whole time we were at the market, I don't remember a point in time where I wasn't talking. My thoughts were racing and I didn't even realize it. On accident, I struck up a conversation with a friend who I will call S. I couldn't focus on the conversation and I'm not entirely sure what we even talked about. But, I cut the conversation short and awkwardly. I caught back up with C and told him we needed to leave.
C had to leave to go to work at 7:30 and regretted taking the second capsule because he was tripping too hard to work. After C left, I was by myself. I felt as I was starting to come down. My thoughts were still racing, but I was still feeling happy.

At around 7:45 my friend, who I will call J, called me and asked me to join him and smoke some weed. I happy obliged and meet up at 8 PM and smoked two big bowls. After getting back to my room I felt really baked. The weed had slowed down the thoughts in my head and brought me to a very relaxed, calm state. It's almost as if it aided the come down off of my trip. Either way, the come down was very easy and relaxing and it was as if I never tripped. I remembered almost everything that happened, and I was in control the whole time.

I instantly reflected upon the day, and I really enjoyed the trip and what it had to offer. I contacted C the next day, and he shared his thoughts on his trip with me. He very much agreed to liking his trip. He experienced similar effects to me except not as strong. He said he is very likely to do it again but at a higher dose. Most likely around 20mg. I will definitely try 4-aco-dmt again and at a higher dosage as well. As a first time tripper I was very happy with it.
