I want to try it for my first time at EDC this year, normally I would just roll but this is a special occasion, so I want to try something new. Ive heard different things from different people, some say you move slow and it gives you an out of body feel, and others said it gives you alot of energy and makes you want to move. I definitely want the second one! If it is the first though whats a better option or something to mix with?

It doesn't give a lot of energy or makes you want to move unless you keep the dose really low and try it in a social settings. On higher doses even if you wanted to move; you can't.

For me it feels serene, distant, surreal, wonderful, strange, weird, bizarre, absurdistic, confusing, deep;

It makes you body feel buzzing, numbed and tingling in a good way; your sense of dinstance and time are very messed up, vision becomes blurred, covered in static that can be colourful at times, especially with eyes closed and it might double up, it slows down and the number of frames slow down and you might see tracers. Not like a classical psychedelic but on higher doses definatly quite an intense effect. If you take a sufficient high dose your senses will be blocked off and you'll experience an inner world much like lucid dreaming (also on lower doses I can get the most amazing dark coloured but beautifully serene closed eye visuals of landscapes, people and I'll fly through those, all very surreal, in a dark room with eyes open and the right music everything can look so surreal and strange, wonderful), this is were people have the out of body stuff. You might also feel moving, tilting over, spinning but not in a dizzying way, especially with eyes closed you may not know what is up down, left, right, time, distance, future, past, meaning, reality, you, what it means to be human.

On a lower dose you just feel serene, comfortable, numb, strange and tingly though.

Personally, I love the feeling; ketamine is a dissociative so its not a downer or upper at all, somewhat of a psychedelic but not in the classical sense. It can give deep and meaningful psychedelic experiences but can also easily be taken casually or even in social settings in lower doses. A low to medium dose can be wonderful to dance on, you might not gain much energy but you won't be sleepy; it can keep you awake for a decent extra few hours if you redose often enough.

For a feeling of what it feels like; I wrote, created and sang a song about ketamine, and more people that did NOT know it was about ketamine said 'it sounds like ketamine', it might give an impression words could not. http://soundcloud.com/azgaza/faceinthestatic Here's my ketamine song. Sorry for spamming my song :p

Also, look up trip reports on erowid, they can give a good indication (or read mine :p I'm also azgaza on there; if you perform a search for azgaza + ketamine in the erowid trip reports vault you should find mine. Here's a link to erowid: www.erowid.org

And read the ketamine topics, this tread may be merged or closed. Also bluelight has a nice search function and wikipedia isn't too useless either :)

Have you looked into 2C-I?
I found that to be pretty energetic.

Yea def agree. I bet 2CI will be more your cup of tea. Energetic. Cosmic zen-like mindspace that more quiets extraneous thoughts than trigger them (unlike many psychedelics), cool if shallow visual effects (major tracers on 25mg doses, much less apparent on lower amounts, brighter colors, super crisp vision, etc), and little to zero and possibly even negative headfuck (as in seems to make me hyper-logical almost Vulcan, haha).

Am I the only one who finds it very possible to get into a negative mindset on 2C-I when taken in the wrong setting? It doesn't happen all the time but I find it can cause me to over think things and get stuck in loops particular when surrounded by people who aren't on the same wavelength.

You'll be wobbly, everything seems strange and distant, your thoughts go to outer space, ..

Around a certain level it sort of reminded me of being very drunk but much more clearheaded and without the negative effects such as nausea, dizziness and mental retardation. I don't mean that it's similar to alcohol at all though. Its more like if a single aspect of alcohol-effects was filtered out, that would I think feel similar to ketamine. (Afaik alcohol is NMDA-antagonist at high doses)

This is exactly how I'd describe it. It's amazing but not quite what youre looking for for edc unless you keep the doses small.

This is how my favorite Ketamine experience went:

I stumbled upon a ketamine bottle after not being able to find it for a year. The last time i did it i just snorted it and this time i decided to IM it. I started with 80 units and had thee BEST 45 minutes of my life. The best I can explain it is that I became God(or a God, who knows ha). I was a single point in an eternity of blackness and it was pure BLISS. I suddenly understood all the inconceivable questions of life (such as eternity and death) and it seemed to last an eternity while happening. It was the best drug experience i've ever had even though i obviously can't understand now everything I seemed to understand while being the K God.

Like what you thought weed was going to do to you when you were 8 years old, and what you thought E's did when you were 14. Major hallucinations, prompted by your own actions. Wave your hands, your hands melt and the ceiling seperates. Listen to dubstep, a dank and heavy atmosphere takes over.... It's an amazing drug.

I wouldn't recommend doing 2c-i or other stimulant psychedelics in 100 degree weather, which is what is projected for EDC this year. I know it might be shitty, but... stay safe first? More classical psychedelics are probably alright but I vaguely remember reading somewhere that 2c-i has very stimmy properties and that does not bode well while dancing to electronic music in 100 degrees. At least make sure to stay absolutely hydrated if you must.

For me.

Really low dose - super energetic, feeling really good.

Medium dose - feel fucking stupid, really confused at everything, feels like I'm talking really loud when infact I'm talking normal/quiet and wonder if things are really happening. Still feel pretty good though, suprisingly. Trying to text is pretty much impossible, my phones screen feels like a marshmallow, and if I move its like I'm walking on some kinda low gravity marshmallow lol. A lot of my friends have forgotton how to do things like walk or move they're arms, I've never experienced anything like that personally.

Never done a high dose.

Never mix it with alcohol though! Feels fucking disgusting, even in tiny doses, being sick for hours...

Man I wish I could have an experience like that with ketamine and yet no dose I have tried so far (up to 155 mg I.M. with no tolerance) has done it for me. I seem to respond so much better to the classical psychedelics. On mushrooms or in the old days when I used to be better at meditation, just a few hits of cannabis would be enough to allow me to enter into samadhi. Ketamine, rather than clarifying things for me simply results in confusion. Ketamine is a strange drug. A very strange drug. The only drug which has given me a stranger experience than k is salvia.

The feel of ketamine to me can best be described as somewhat like alcohol only missing the GABA aspect and the euphoria. But the world spinning, body numb, loss of coordination is very much like alcohol. Then as the dose increases past the point where you would lose memory were it alcohol, the experience turns inward (I always close my eyes to prevent nausea) and at this level it is absolutely nothing like alcohol. Instead, I generally forget I have taken a drug and become a point of consciousness which moves through strange worlds as I am usually extremely confused over matters of causation (what causes what) what I am supposed to do. I also feel like I have very little control over the experience, as opposed to classical psychedelics where I can exert influence over the direction of my trip. I seldom have bad trips on ketamine, although my trips aren't really good either. They are just interesting. It's kind of like dreaming I guess.

On one trip, I met "Dr. Weird" who was a k-hole tour guide. His job was to take ketamine users with him on his boat and sail around showing them various aspects of the k-hole. Different k-holes can very quite a bit and generally don't contain much life. No plant life and I have never encountered any entities with the exception of Dr. Weird.

Overall, ketamine has been pretty disappointing for me. Of course I do love it, since I tend to love anything that makes you trip, but I haven't had any ecstatic experiences and I haven't learned much from it. It is simply entertainment for me. Weird, trippy entertainment and the come down sucks which is why I rarely use it anymore. I'd much rather eat mushrooms or LSD. Still I have been wanting to revisit ketamine soon. I just hate losing an entire day to the come down, especially because the trip only lasts about 40 minutes and then I generally take two redoses, for a total of 3 k holes per session. I don't like to do more than that because then the come down gets too intense but I definitely recommend at least one redose because I don't find the come down is affected much by that and yet you get double the tripping time.

That is one advantage ketamine has over the classical psychedelics (most of them anyway). By controlling the dose, you can come down a bit, think about what you've just experienced and then give yourself another injection and go right back there. You can't really do that with mushrooms or acid.

a low dose to me feels like you're under a large bell, that's being struck by a hammer, making you dizzy, confused and "wobbly". it feels a bit similar to alcohol but more "interesting".

It depends how much you do.

On a low dose, you'd feel wobbly and a bit out of it.

On a higher dose, you'd feel surreal, like life is a dream.

Ketamine is a kind of Kafkaesque drug, everything seems dreamy with an element of impending excitement, with danger. To me, at least.

It's a very strange drug, strange would be the best word.
It's what you make of it.

Have you ever had a weird dream?
You know the type I'm speaking of.

The type of dream that you know makes no continual sense in the rational mind,
but has all the necessary requirements in the dream world.

That's what ketamine is. A dream.

Sounds like what you want is a kball which is key t coke. Actually while high on key you don't have too much energy but after your hyper. I suggest 50 mg of ketamine snorted then 30 minutes into the high a line of coke. Dissociated t energy is quite the feeling!
