Taking it back to my research chemical days, during the freezing month of January 2012 I decided to give 6-Apb a whirl. I'd read that it was similar to MDA or MDMA & made for a euphoric party drug, though with somewhat of a more psychedelic effect. Y'all already know I'm not a huge psychedelic fan but I was reassured it was more MDMA-like than psychedelic. The lie detector determined THAT was a lie. I bought a pressed pill online from a highly respected vendor & waited until the right time to drop it, which was at a fashion/art show at some hipster place downtown. As always, I took only half the pill due to my small body size & general sensitivity to drugs, plus the fact that this was an entirely new substance for me. Turned out to be a good choice.
I also took small amounts of 4-FA which was something I was eating daily at that point. The 6-Apb started kicking in on the way to the event in the car. Typical psychedelic mushroom-like effects. Uh-oh. Just what I hoped wouldn't happen. I don't do well at big social events as it is but particularly on psychedelics and ESPECIALLY on novel ones I've never touched before. I snapped a few pics at the event, talked to a guy I knew & then we bailed. It felt like all the tight-jeaned hipsters were staring at me (they probably were) but I just kept it moving.

We went to a fancy-shmansy coffee shop afterward where I got a raspberry hot chocolate. Not sure why this detail sticks out but it was really fucking tasty. My now-ex took a pic of me & I looked as terrible as I felt: pale, thin & washed out. I'd just come through a long 3-month opium poppy withdrawal & lost a bunch of weight but the pallor was definitely from the 6-Apb. The rest of the trip was spent curled up in the fetal position in bed. In total it probably lasted about 9 hours. The effects were somewhere between mescaline & shrooms with absolutely NO MDMA-like effects. Even with the 4-FA mixed in. It just felt really toxic in a way that's hard to describe. I think I may have read about cardiotoxicity after the fact which makes sense.
Anyway, I would only recommend 6-Apb if you like other psychedelics. It has lots of glowing reviews online so I was sorely disappointed with the effects. And this particular vendor had no bad reviews so it wasn't that. Just a case of my biochemistry not aligning with the substance. Again.
