The active principle of Feliz P is 4-AcO-DMT, a substance that belong to the tryptamine class and presents a chemical structure and range of effects similar to psilocybin.
It was synthesised for the first time by Hofmann and Troxler in 1963 but, no further research was made into its effects. Only in 1999 it was suggested that it might be a good alternative to psilocybin in pharmacological research. In the 2010s it began to appear in the research chemicals market gaining some popularity among recreative users.
The effects of 4-AcO-DMT come from its role as a partial agonist of the 5-HT2A receptor, that have influence on the serotonin levels in the brain.
Theories say that once you ingest 4-AcO-DMT, the substance will be transformed into psilocin, the main substance in the magic mushrooms, directly in your stomach. This might be the reason why its effects are strong and similar to the one you can experience when you take magic mushrooms.
4-AcO-DMT promises classic psychedelic effects which, together with its tolerability profile, makes it a popular choice for those in search of entheogenic experiences.
The most common effects include:
- Sedation – it is considered relaxing and mildly sedating by most users;
- “Body high” described as pleasurable, warm with tingling sensation. These sensations reach its limit when the peak is reached;
- Physical and cognitive euphoria;
- Tactile enhancement;
- Changes in felt bodily form and gravity;
- More sensible sense of smell and taste;
- Visual acuity and colour enhancements;
- Pattern recognition enhancement;
- Strong visuals that will be stronger with higher doses until you might be seeing very complex geometric figures, melting objects, and distortions so strong that sometimes it might seem difficult to distinguish what is around you;
- Ego loss;
- Internal and external hallucinations;
- Analysis and creativity enhancements;
- Empathy, affection and social enhancement – not central to the all experience but very present;
- Increased sense of humour and music appreciation;
- Time distortions.
Note that each user feels it differently and that all the effects will probably not occur all at the same time.
The effects of 4-AcO-DMT might be stronger than usually experienced with magic mushrooms because ingesting Feliz P is like taking the psilocybin like substance almost in pure form.
The effects will start 30 to 40 minutes after the ingestion and the peak is reached within 1 hour. The effects will last between 3 to 5 hours, depending on the dosage.
The intensity of side-effects will be directly proportional to the amount taken and might include:
- Nausea- this can be lessened or avoided by fastening for around 6 to 8 hours before-hand;
- Temperature regulation suppression;
- Muscle contractions and relaxation;
- Excessive yawning;
- Watery eyes;
- Frequent need to urinate;
- Pupil dilation;
- Runny nose;
- Teeth grinding;
- Seizures, especially if you are prone to it.
Like most psychedelics, 4-AcO-DMT has a low potential for abuse and it is considered non-addictive. However, tolerance sets in immediately after ingestion, and it takes around 1 week to be back to normal, if there is no consumption.
When consumed with other psychedelics, 4-AcO-DMT will reduced the effect of the taken psychedelics.
The after-effects can be felt, with decreasing intensity, for 12 hours.
Cannabis strongly intensifies the sensory and cognitive effects of psychedelics so, caution is advised since it might increase feelings of paranoia and anxiety.
Stimulants combined with psychedelics can turn into uncontrollable paranoia, anxiety and panic.
Especially of you are new to psychedelics we strongly advise not to mix substances.
The combination with alcohol might have a negative effect on the experience due to its ability to cause dehydration, nausea and physical fatigue, especially in high doses. In low doses it is considered safe but it can “dim” the experience.
Depending on the dosage, benzodiazepines (substances that act as a central nervous system depressant) can reduce the intensity of 4-AcO-DMT effects.
Feliz P comes in bottles of 10ml that will be enough for 2 light doses or 1 strong dose.
If it is your first time, you can decide to take a lower dose at first, just to get familiar with it, and then increase the dosage to enjoy a nice trip.
