A Reddit user talks about a bad trip they had when taking NBOMe with a friend:
“We waited about 2 hours for a come up and that’s when it hit. We felt sick, unsure if we were hungry or on the verge of puking everywhere. The visuals were cool but not insane, everything looked as if it had life and was breathing, and buildings were bouncing about. I also had no perception of angles and everything felt curved around a point. We then went inside and chilled in her bed, played [videogames] and start shaking uncontrollably. We couldn’t tell if we were too hot or too cold, so we removed the blanket. That’s when we both felt like we were truly gonna kick the bucket.”
It can be a bit weird adjusting back to life outside your bubble, so we’ve pulled togther a few key tips to help you out if you choose to use drugs.
For Mental Health Awareness Week, we talked to Phil Glaser, one of the team behind The Level, about how your state of mind has a bigger impact on your trip than you might think.
