Well the Autumn equinox came and I had a yearning to try a new psychedelic. Originally it was to be 4-allyloxy-3,5-dimethoxthyphenethylamine, bute fate conspired to make it not so. In the end I went with 2C-EF and lordy was it a good decision (nobody mention the sychrononicity word!~). I went with 10mg after Shuligin's dosage estimation of 12-24mg (way overestimated IMO). Anyway - here goes...
T +0:00 swallowed 10mg in some orange juice (fellow traveller B9 did the same)
T +0:15 first alerts noticed (on top of 20mg of methoxetamine - I'm rather nervous of new psychedelics these days)
T +0:30 visual patterning very noticable. I thought 2C-D was better than 2C-B, but this is much, much more in every department
from here on in, the timeline becomes a bit hazy duue to the the drug's unexpected strong effects (fellow traveller had another 5mg, which he almost regrettee later).
Music becomes very important. Put on lots of Hawkwind tracks, including my favourite 'Space is Deep' (much loved after DPT experiences), but felt a change was needed and put on U2's 'Achtung Baby'. Next thing I know I'm possessed by the spirit of dance and have to express myself by groooving around to various tracks from the album, much to the amusement of B9 - could almost say "yes, he does move in mysterious ways! ". The next couple of hours were spent dancing to just about anything that got put on the CD player (I'm normally the last one to get up and dance due to self-conciousness. Even MDMA couldn't usually get me dancing, most times I was just a grinning mess!). The plateau lasted from aprox T +1:00 to +3:00, then there was a very gradual decline back to baseline at T +6:00. The visual effects were astonishing - not the emotional depth of DOM, but like it in every other way.
If I had to make a conclusion, it would be that this is the best 2C-x compound I'd ever taken, a real quality psychedelic up there with mescaline, DOM & LSD. In fact, given the choice, I'd take 2C-EF over those three on most occasions. Thank fuck I decided that I decided to dose on the way low side - I'd hate to think what sort of experience would erupt from taking 20mg. Either overwhelmingly positive or a trip to hell.
2C-B/2C-E - left them standing in the dust IMO. Shame it's illegal in the UK as this would be my first choice for a night of dancing/spiritual revelation. My cynical side is still looking for a negative aspect to the experience, but I still haven't found one!
The above only partially conveys the joy and astonishment at the effects of this drug...
To go back to the U2 album, this possibly was better than the real thing (LSD)!
