Skinner is reported to have taken some of the highest doses known of the substances below, along with repeated doses and various combinations. Note the lack of popular drugs like tobacco, methamphetamine, heroin, and cocaine. In interviews, Skinner commonly noted his disdain of THC and marijuana, along with a low opinion of ketamine.

 

1. N, N-DIETHYLTRYPTAMINE
2. 5-MEO-ALPHA-MT
3. N, N-DIMETHYLTRYPTAMINE [Editor’s note: Skinner’s favorite method for “time surfing” was taking DMT via an IV drip. He would prepare an isotonic solution with a tendency to be slightly hypertonic, using free amine 3, magnesium sulfate and acsorbic acid. Skinner did not use saline solution to get the density up, and rarely used 5% dextrose. He said that significant phantom pain radiated near the injection site for the duration of the trip and should be ignored. Drips often lasted up to 1-5 hours and gave the most signifcant afterglow of any psychedelic. At IV junctions, he would add procaine, lidocaine, N-acetyl-carnatine, L-carnatine, N-acetyl cysteine which yielded the peak psychedelic experiences of his life.]
4. 2-ALPHA, N-DIMETHYLTRYPTAMINE
5. ALPHA, N-DIMETHYLTRYPTAMINE
6. N, N-DIPROPYLTTRYPTAMINE
7. ALPHA-ETHYLTRYPTAMINE
8. 3, 4-DIHYDRO-7METHOXY-1-METHYL-b-CARBOLINE
9. 7-METHOXY-b-CARBOLINE
10. D-LYSERGIC ACID DIETHYLAMIDE
11. MELATONIN
12. 5-METHOXY-N, N-DIETHYLTRYPTAMINE
13. 5-METHOXY-N, N-DISOPROPYLTRYPTAMINE
14. 5-METHOXY-N, N-DIMETHYLTRYPTAMINE
15. NOR-5-MEO-DMT
16. 1, 2, 3, 4-TETRAHYDRO-b-CARBOLINE
17. ALPHA-METHYLTRYPTAMINE [Editor’s note: Skinner said this was one of his favorite psychedelics, especially when overlayed with ALD-52. He took the ALD-52 1-1.5 hours after the aMT. He took it numerous times (more than 50) and experienced no negative side-effects, except that its duration was unpredictable. He also said that aMT’s effects were enhanced by an IV push of magnesium sulfate, L-carnatine, and N-acetyl-carnatine and that the effects included a strong impression of telepathy. Skinner is doubtful that the paradigm of telepathy is correct.]
18. N-ETHYLTRYPTAMINE
19. N-METHYLTRYPTAMINE
20. 6-PROPYL-NOR-LSD
21. TRYPTAMINE
22. TETRAHYDROHARMINE

32. COLD WATER WASH OF ERGOT
33. WARM WATER WASH OF ERGOT
34. WINE (ETHANOL) WAS OF ERGOT
35. ANY COMBINATION OF 32-34
36. 5-FLUORO-ALPHA-METHYLYTRYPTAMINE [Editor’s note: In personal interviews, Skinner said that at a minimum, it lasted 9 hours and was not a “warm drug.” Trips varied in length significantly, and all doses were 25 mg and above (Skinner weighed 250 lbs at the time). He also believed you could experience time dilation with 5-Fluoro, and his best experience involved overlaying it with LSD-25. He also stated that he corkscrewed the drug into an 18 hour trip, and that 5-Fluoro gave him the worst post-tripping headaches from any psychedelics, which persisted up to 24 hours. He remains favorable to 5-Fluoro as of this publication. Warning: 5-Fluoro is also a potent MAOI.]
37. 6- FLUORO-ALPHA-METHYLYTRYPTAMINE [Editor’s note: Due to Skinner’s initial test run of this molecule in the early 1980s, he was particularly cautious with dosages of 6-Fluoro. It is longer lasting than 5-Fluoro with significantly more time alteration at doses ranging from 25mg to 75mg. No major headaches ensued. Skinner’s enjoying combining 6-Fluoro with ALD-52.]
