This report will be quite short because of the following reasons.
I don't usually write reports and the experience was somewhat mild, so I don't really have too much interesting stuff to tell.
I also didn't bother to take detailed notes. Hours are approximate as I didn't check the time constantly
Setting: at a friends house with some other people, 2 first-timers using 20 mg 2C-I, 1 person using 300 mg mescaline, another person using 56 mg escaline and finally, me, using 50 mg escaline.
0:00 50 mg of escaline is taken, 3 hours after having a light breakfast.
0:30 it feels as if it is really cold, which is a usual physical come up sign for me.
1:00 some awareness of mild psychedelic effect, but nothing interesting yet. In the next two hours people chat a bit, and some music is turned on. There is certainly some musical enhancement/intensification but nothing spectacular. This is probably because I am distracted by the conversation.
3:00 I listen to some music somewhere else, where I am not distracted by the conversation, at this moment I can focus more on the exact effects of the compound. At that time I realise that the effect is a bit less strong than I would have expected. Have I started to peak? In each case, I notice that there are some mental effects, and also some strange visual effects. For example, I looked at a chair and I thought I saw something shaped like a cat, but then realised it was probably a pillow as there was already another cat close. A few minutes later it actually turned out to be another cat.
3:30 a group of people decide to take a short walk in a nearby forest and I come along. I notice that grass is intensely coloured and I also see a bit of patterning/unusual geometric effects. The actual forest was very nice to walk through, both in that it looked very nice and the act of walking through it was fun(it was autumn so lots of leaves on the ground). In the background there is clearly the sound of a nearby highway, which is unusually enjoyable to listen to.
4:30 I eat a few slices of pizza, which are really delicious, probably also because I was quite hungry. In the background music by phillip glass is played, and everyone agrees that this repetetive music is surprisingly amusing and not tiresome at all.
6:00 I start to wonder that the effect is already strongly decreasing? I am somewhat dissapointed with that but I decide to listen to some more music. When listening to the music, I notice that the effects have not decreased at all. The music that was on sounded very deep, detailed and intense. It was an album I already really like when sober ('marijn' by machinefabriek), but I felt that I could notice beautiful details that I had never heard before.
7:00 Afterwards, some of the other people did not feel like fully listening to the music, so started actively conversing, so I went to a more quiet place and listened to some more music in the dark. I listened for a few more hours and it was very enjoyable.
10:00 the effect has decreased over the last 2 hours and I am now close to baseline.
15:00 I try to sleep, but it is difficult. After an hour or so, I succeed.
comparison to mescaline: in a few ways, it was very similar to mescaline. The come-up duration was very long, and as with mescaline, the experience is very enjoyable after the first few hours of peak effects. I also didn't notice any nausea, but the one time I tried mescaline, I consumed it spread over 30 minutes, which usually works against nausea in my experience. The duration was perhaps 2 hours shorter than a typical mescaline experience. I would compare this dose to what I would think 180 mg of mescaline would feel like.
Conclusion: I though it was a worthwhile compound. The first few hours were somewhat dissapointing, because I had anticipated intensity comparable to mescaline, but the long plateau of the experience was very nice and calm. When I try it again, I will do it at a larger dose (say, 65 mg) and see how that affects the intensity.
