Welcome to the Big & Dandy 4-HO-EPT Thread!
There is almost no information available about the chemical as of this post so there's not much else to put here, but it has recently become widely available and thus deserves its own thread. This is an entirely novel psychedelic so I must urge caution to all those out there who intend to or are considering trying it for themselves. Though so far the class of chemicals it comes from appears to produce fewer risky physical effects than many others on average, there is no way to tell how anyone will react to an entirely new molecule until they actually do it and find out. Please, if you do plan to take this chemical, know your sensitivity to these kinds of psychedelics first and start with reasonable doses before working your way up.
That said, in the case that you do take 4-HO-EPT, please consider adding any important information about your experience to this thread as well, so that others will be more educated about its effects and safety. Due to the popularity of many closely related chemicals to this one and the recent outgrowth of tryptamines it seems likely that many people will be trying this one for themselves if they get the chance, so the more information we have about it really will greatly benefit everyone, especially since we're starting from basically nothing.
So far, I have taken 4-HO-EPT once myself at 25 mg. I wrote a trip report about it which can be found here: (4-HO-EPT/25 mg) - First Time - A Short, Sweet, Powerful, and Novel Experience.
To sum it up, I found that for me personally 25 mg was a good starter dose, not too strong but not too light either. The physical side effects were very mild, consisting mostly of a slightly increased heart rate and stomach upset at the onset that both passed before the peak, clumsiness during the peak, sweating, and light leg tremors and jaw chattering, along with a cannabis-induced headache. The primary subjective effects were a mix of stimulation and sedation both somewhat mild, notable but not forced euphoria, enhanced sensory pleasure, very light threshold open eye visuals, and a brief phase of intense but transparent closed eye hallucinations, followed by a shift into a field of white light with some imaginative imagery in it. The first alerts came within ten or fifteen minutes, the peak effects began about an hour after dosing, mostly passed within an hour after that, and the entire trip was down by about four to four and a half hours after dosing. I also have noticed since writing the report that there was a good afterglow lasting for at least a couple days following the trip, during which I felt very relaxed and happy.
It was a very unique experience, and one that I personally found quite enjoyable. I will not recommend these doses to anyone else because others must find what is safe for themselves first, but now that I know that 25 mg is a good starting point for me I am considering taking 35 mg next time, probably within about a month once I work my way back to it.
If anyone else has anything at all to share about this one, please do!
