First time doing acid and I"m wondering about taking 3 hits

Tom (@man753) 8 years, 10 months ago

Hello friends, so I am a pretty experienced tripper i have done mushrooms 3 times (most was an 3.5 grams) and i took 2-ce/2-ci 3 or 4 times a week for about a month and have dabbled with other 2c-x’s and have tried 4-aco-dmt and it was great.

But one time i did this stuff called 25I-NBOME and i had a very terrible trip. I felt like my brain was on overload and i had no control in the situation. It also had the craziest most fucked up visuals in my life i saw my mom get hit by the car i was in and blood splattered everywhere and i saw her face in every reflection. Later on in the trip I called my mom and told her I was tripping. I am just scared of not being able to control myself and I was just wondering if anyone has words of wisdom for me. There was also a point in my trip when i locked into my mind that I was having a bad trip and a spine chilling feeling went through my body and i just dont want to go through that again.

But a little backstory on the acid, the guy I got it from got it from the silk road and I have had various friends that have taken it and they say that 1 hit of it made them trip pretty hard, but i also have a friend (whos more experienced with psychadelics) that said that he didnt trip too hard on 1 hit. They could very well be double dropped. They also say 3 hits is gonna be crazy as 2 hits were very strong.

But the plan for the trip is on presidents day to go hiking out in the woods and have an all day trip and maybe go frisbee golfing afterward. I also have a baby sitter planned out that is really into Terrence McKenna so he knows a lot about tripping and he has had experience with psychadelics.

Then My best friend and I will take 3 hits of Lucy each and just hangout with our friend and talk about everything. My other friend may also join us on the hike if he has work off.

I am also a reikei 1 practicioner and have been practicing and Im going to try and meditate out in the woods and do a self treatment or meditate while im coming up and on my peak. I will also probably do tree hugging if my trip goes downhill to try and pick up on some good energy. I also would like to find a rose quartz crystal and have a sage burning cleansing ceremony while out there.

But do you guys think this is a good idea? I am slightly worried I will freak out and it scares me…but at the same time i want to figure out more about myself and delve deeper into my mind. I am just wondering if anyone has had a 3 hit or more of acid trip. My friend told me that when he took 4 hits it was as hard as a 2c-p trip and those were very managable and fun i tripper in the woods all day on those( they last 12 hours). But thank you for reading this lengthy thing and thanks for the advice.

Try one hit first, to get the feeling. You can always take more later. I have a very experienced friend who trips acid every weekend. He convinced me to take three hits with him once. It wasn’t until later that i realized that he had built a huge tolerance and I was tripping at least twice as hard as he was. Three hits of this particular stuff made me trip way too hard. Better safe than sorry.

I have done both mushrooms and acid in the past, (I no longer take any substances). But I do believe you will be okay. Everyone is different, and that is important to take into consideration when taking psychedelics, or anything for that matter. Personally, mushrooms were more of a confusing trip. Acid trips, though much longer lasting, were always much more clear and always had an ‘uppedy’ feel to it. Meaning, it felt great to be active while tripping on acid, where as mushrooms would make me want to mellow out most of the time. Also with acid, unlike mushrooms, it’s hard to tell how much of the chemical is actually being taken, or how potent it is. My first trip on acid was with two hits, and it was plenty enough for me. I have done three hits and the only difference that I noticed was that the body high and visuals became more intense. I think you will be fine, just remember as with any other trip, that as long as you’re breathing, your alright and you shouldn’t be scared unless there is a blantly obvious reason to be scared such as a natural disaster or something. Just trust your instinct! Good luck and have fun!

@man753,

I consider myself an experienced psychedelic user having done mescaline, shrooms, 4-AcO-DMT, Salvia, LSA, DOC, 2-C-t7, 2-C-I, DXM, and likely somewhere between 100-300 hits of acid.

I would highly recommend against taking 3 hits of a substance you have never personally tried… especially if you have any doubts, which seems likely since you posted here.

I feel with psychedelics if you have any doubts you are setting yourself up for a bad trip.

Trips and dosage vary widely person to person, people have different reactions to it. I once was in your position and made the decision to take 3, having been disappointed in my previous couple experiences. I soon found myself coming up much harder and faster than I had anticipated. I had a complete ego loss and a ++++ trip like I have never experienced again.

My rule of thumb with acid was if a trusted friend says it’s good and clean, I would test the waters with one hit, wait a couple weeks, and then drop it at a higher dose after I get a feel for it.

If I don’t have any reliable intel, half a hit.

I no longer do acid, I feel like I have found everything that I needed to find from it.

One more thing. Honestly you have no idea what is in that little square. If it’s a substance with an exponential dose curve… say 20mg 4-AcO-DMT blotters or something you will quickly be in over your head. Happened to me with “acid” one time turned out to be DOC and I ate 2.5 hits. Not fun.

@man753, i agree that it kind of depends on each person… i dont want to throw any bad vibes your way, but i will share with you that between the various hallucinagens.. acid is the one that tends to go darker/out of control for me so I stopped using it. However it seems for me no matter the dose on any substance, my attitude going in will dictate much of the experience! Just my two cents. BTW i have never heard of 25I NBOME? Will you ever use it again?

@man753, I would take two drops because it is your first time dropping acid. The difference between 2 drops and 3 drops is a very big difference in the intensity of the trip, especially if they turn out to be very good drops. I would stick to two, and no doubt you’ll have a good time, but save the heavier dosages for when you know what to expect and you’re confident that you can bring yourself back to ground if the trip becomes too overpowering.

Id start off with one. I’ve never done acid, but it’s best to be safe than sorry.

@man753, Three hits will temporarily destroy your ego and entire perception of reality. That can be scary for one who has not seen. I have experience with higher doses than what you are asking about. Also, with DMT. Just remember that you can always find your way back when you get lost in the vastness of the understanding. With the limitless, of where there truly is. Go in with the sight of seeking knowledge from the experience. It is not a game. It is a Veil to be lifted. A low dose is better than a high does at first. Although, whom am i to say what it is the soul of yours seeks. Do what feels right and remember what you are shown. For you can see things that are otherwise hidden. There is also a difference between reality in which you live, and reality in which is beyond your own existence. Things to which have no description. If you wish to see what is beyond yourself and your place, then use it. Existence itself. In the end though.. It is the understanding of the existence of your own which you will see from your spirit.

@hollowinfinity, but did you go into it with the fears and doubts as the original poster has expressed ? that makes all the difference.

Alex (551) (@hollowinfinity) 8 years, 10 months ago ago

@melissaurban1991, He did shrooms 3 times before. Besides, first trip on acid, what you were thinking before is pretty irrelevant, because your brains going to be going a bunch of different ways anyways. I was scared, doubtful, happy, and everything else. My point tho is that 1 hit isn’t even going to do anything to you.

Sugar Magnolia (375) (@melissaurban1991) 8 years, 10 months ago ago

@hollowinfinity, i have to disagree, even as an experienced tripper if i had any lingering fears or worries going into the trip they hindered me from having a good one. that being said, who knows what kind of acid he has (if it’s acid at all) there is no real LSD anymore, not since probably the 80’s.. there’s only research chemicals anymore.

@man753, take as much as you think your gonna need just be in a happy state of mind and always remember it’s only for a while your not gonna be trippin forever . If your questioning it then maybe you shouldn’t take so much. I recommend 1 for your first time you can always try more later on.

@man753, It really depends, firstly on the acid; you really can’t measure acid by hits because different stamps are different strengths. Some stamps I’ve taken are 2 or three times as strong as others. Secondly the person; since you are a somewhat experienced tripper this probably doesn’t apply, however if you have never dropped lucy before you will not have tolerance to it. (by the way, what were the shrooms? 3.5 grams doesn’t sound like a lot). I’d say take one and wait a good hour to hour half before you take another. But most importantly, don’t worry about how much you are taking just enjoy the experience.

@hollowinfinity, Acid comes in all sorts of different strengths, you can’t compare stamps you took to stamps somebody else is going to take in such a general way.

@liveitloveit, OMG you brag about that??? Do you put it in your CV ?

~ Lady M ~ (20) (@modusoperandi) 8 years, 10 months ago ago

@man753, You are a reikei practitioner and you are asking about drug dosage? You are a walking contradiction.
Take 10 hits if you want, and try ”meditating” while high.
That’s not spirituality, that’s nothingness ! That’s suppressing your mind.

LiveItLoveIt (16) (@liveitloveit) 8 years, 10 months ago ago

@modusoperandi,

Not bragging. I think it was stupid of me to take so much LSD and I definitely was not myself for quite some time. I went through a time in my life where I would eat anything I got my hands on. Just trying to give a frame of reference and honest feedback to someone seeking guidance.

I’m just saying I have eaten 3 hits and been fine and I’ve eaten one hit that was too much. You can’t judge micrograms of unknown substances by looking at a square of paper.

@man753, I’ve only taken Acid once, so I’m no expert, but based on that experience you should be fine, especially with your experience with other drugs.

I took two hits and wish I would’ve taken three. It was like a mild shroom trip with none of the negative bits I usually get on mushies. Very light, but interesting visuals. I went for periods where I didn’t feel high at all, to only sit down on the couch and have it come rushing back.

@man753, Take zero if you’re having doubts about it, it’s not the drug that’s harmful it’s your reaction to it. If you’re feeling confident on a particular day, drop three. LSD is much, much, much better than other synthetically produced look-alikes, such as 2-ce/2-ci 3. LSD is more stable. The first time I ever tripped any LSD, I dropped four and went on the craziest trip I have ever experienced. Lucy is a nice lady.

So I’m pretty experienced at psychedelics too (LSD, shrooms, 2c-i, 2c-e, 25i-nbome, molly, mda) , but I’d start out with 1 hit of acid. Because you can dose other drugs pretty effectively (like shrooms, 2c-x’s, etc) since they are active in larger amounts than acid you can know exactly how much you take, but because acid is active at 50 micrograms (1mcg=1/10,000 gram) even the chemists who make the LSD and the dealers who put it on tabs really have no idea exactly how potent the hits are without using a chemistry lab quality scale, which cost like $15,000. I took 1 my very first time and was blasted into a different universe, but other times I’ve taken upwards of 3-4 and had a decent trip, but nothing like that first time. Take one, wait 90 mins, if you’re still feeling like you want more then take another. Its just really hard to judge whether you should start out with 3, because 3 of yours could equal the quality/intensity of the 1 I took my first time, in which 3 would be okay…but 1 of yours could equal 3 of the ones I took my first time, in which case you basically just dropped 9 hits of crazy strong lucy, so yeah, just start slow.

@connerj93, btw, lsd is not more stable. it degrades quickley in the presence of heat and moisture, whereas the synthetic ones do not. It is much safer than the synthetic lab shit though.
