Compound: Methoxetamine (2-(3-methoxyphenyl)-2-(ethylamino)cyclohexanone)
Description of drug: White powder, quite fine.
My previous drug experience: have taken MDMA and ecstacy waaay too much over the past 8 years or so. Recently experimented with 2C-E and 2C-C quite a bit. Weed, obviously. Have taken ketamine a reasonable amount over the past 3 or so years but not too much; might have a tiny tolerance but not very much as good ket still knocks me out with just a couple bumps. Have only K-holed a handful of times, by accident, although the last experience has left me wanting to do it on purpose.
About me: Male, mid-20s, reasonably good health (although went through a horrible benzo withdrawal last year which left me with stomach issues) - 165cm height, 64kg weight.
ALLERGY TESTING / LOW DOSE
I've been eagerly awaiting MXE since reading the main thread on Bluelight. I was skeptical at first but the reports that I have read (especially since the "official" vendors have started selling this week) have intrigued me. I ordered 500mg and it arrived on Wednesday afternoon.
My scales aren't great (they're £20 cheapie mg scales accurate to perhaps +/- 5mg) but I think that they're plenty accurate enough for this compound.
I was at home during the day so I did an allergy test of about 3mg. No effect, which was reassuring.
About an hour later I did about 10mg. I thought that a small dose would be the next logical step seeing as this is a brand spanking new RC, after all. My head felt very cloudy; it was kind of like ket to be honest. It wasn't fantastic; not particularly bad, per se, but not particularly enjoyable either.
I took a couple of valium as my head was feeling all fuggy (plus I just received 20x 10mg Valium in the mail and I really like Valium) and this sorted me out. I felt quite serene if anything.
I faffed around for a bit - cleaned the house, prepared dinner; my girlfriend came home; we ate; and then the MXE testing began proper.
T+0:00 - Insufflated 20mg. My girlfriend didn't want to do any tonight as she has work tomorrow and is far more sensible than I, but she snorted a 3mg allergy test so that she can join me in further experimentation on Friday evening.
T+0:20 - Feel kinda light-headed. Watching Desperate Housewives (yeah I know). Colours kinda brighter.
T+0:45 - Definitely feeling a bit wonky now. Walking feels very bouncy but is easier than on large-ish amounts of K (where I would frequently bang into walls making my way to the toilet). Desperate Housewives is finished; girlfriend is now wrapping Christmas presents. I rack up 2x 10mg lines and insufflate one of them.
T+1:15 - I insufflate the other 10mg line.
T+1:45 - Watching Ugly Betty (don't start). It's very colourful. Wasn't feeling much of an opoid effect up until now but I feel kinda warm and fuzzy. Not as much as I would with actual opiates, but it's alright. At this point I do a double nitrous oxide balloon; it's pretty nice. When I come back to reality I tell me girlfriend that I felt like I was trapped inside a glass chopping board. It made sense at the time.
T+3:15 - Watching Flight of the Conchords now. Insufflate another 20mg. "Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor" (a classic FOTC song) comes on; I pause it, load up a single NO2 balloon, resume play, and inhale. I remember feeling like another inanimate object but can't remember what. NO2 whilst on MXE is fun.
T+4:00 - Bedtime now. Lying in bed is quite nice. I remember thinking that I feel like a piece of toast. I don't know why but for some reason MXE makes me feel like inanimate objects. I usually have trouble sleeping, and was hopeful that MXE would help me fall asleep quicker (because ketamine knocks me out and gives me what I like to call "rainbow dreams") but this did not happen. It didn't keep me awake longer however, it just didn't seem to affect my sleep patterns that much. Also, lying in bed was nice; I felt like I was floating for a bit. Plus I was a slice of toast for a brief period of time, which was nice.
I insufflated a total of 60mg over 4 hours. It was pretty good fun but definitely not a full-on experience. That said, it was a Wednesday night and I wasn't looking for interplanetary space travel.
On Friday I'm going to up the dose to 50mg insufflated at once and see what that does. My girlfriend will probably try a lower sublingual dose. If 50mg insufflated doesn't work for me then I'll explore some other options (snort another 50mg? take another 50mg sublingual?) - we'll see. I want space travel dammit.
I'll report back.
If Friday night works out then I'll probably buy another 2g as I'm sure that this stuff will be made illegal in the coming months. I'm quite optimistic as to its potential and would like to stockpile (I really regret not bulk buying mephedrone before the ban... loved that stuff!)
