DMT, What is it?
Here we take a look at DMT, a naturally occurring psychedelic, and its effects on the brain and body. New research has shown that the psychedelic drug DMT can induce a dream – similar to a condition in the brain caused by its high levels of serotonin and dopamine, the two neurotransmitters responsible for sleep and memory. Street names for DMT names are Fantasia, Dmitri, Businessman’s Trip, Businessman’s Special, The Spirit Molecule and 45 Minute Psychosis
The National Institute on Drug Abuse says that while hallucinogens are naturally present in the brain in small amounts, the release of endogenous DMT can be associated with a range of side effects including hallucinations, paranoia and depression when taken. Some research suggests it can also occur in high doses, leading to the idea that it may be linked. Ultimately, we seem to have more questions than answers when it comes to endogenous DMT, which may be at least a good indicator of the potential effects of psychedelic drugs on the human body, but remains controversial. Do people who tend to seek spiritual growth ultimately accept it or does it cause hallucinations?
DMT Side Effects
It is not yet clear why psychedelics like DMT often provide users with such intense and meaningful emotional experiences. Although it can indeed be extremely blissful, it is a very dangerous attitude to consider it as a means to an end rather than as an instrument for oneself – expression or spiritual growth.
Although some DMT users have positive psychological experiences with the drug, others suffer from what they describe as a “DMT trip” – confusing and frightening. Some people who are content to take other hallucinogens may shy away from DMT itself because they have a mystique associated with it. When people use it this way, they often feel the need to stop using it or other hallucinations in favor of other things.
The DMT’s worst journey is usually the more intense, but there are no chemical reasons to compare the journeys. Tryptamine is a chemical compound with a chemical structure similar to DMT, but with slightly different chemical properties.
This is a substance that actually has psychedelic properties, similar to psilocybin, which is converted into this substance after ingestion. DMT itself is the same chemical structure as several other psychedelic tryptamines, including DMT, LSD, MDMA and other psychedelics, as well as the psychoactive properties of some of the more popular psychedelic drugs such as LSD and MDMA. It has methanol – as well as properties and a number of substitution variants, mainly in the form of diazepam, the active ingredient of LSD.
How Do You Take DMT?
DMT can be taken in many forms, but most commonly it is smoked, taken as powder or consumed, sniffed, smoked, injected or injected in the psychedelic Amazonian herbal brew ayahuasca. DMT – N – n – Dimethyltryptamine is not orally active and must be smoked to develop its effect. However, if it were produced on the periphery, it would be beneficial to smoke it, as it can be smoked or breathed.
Although microdosing is most commonly performed with LSD and psilocybin, there is not much information about micro-dosing of DMT. DMT is so strong that it is bedridden and can be “microdosed” in various ways, such as by inhaling, ingesting, injecting or taking a small amount.
DMT can be smoked, sniffed or brewed with psychedelic teas commonly known as ayahuasca, hoasca or aya yage. An example of this combination is the brewing and ingestion of a small amount of psychedelic tea containing ayahuasca and DMT.
Compared to the oral DMT in ayahuasca, it contains a color scheme that resembles LSD, but in a structured style that is similar to that of psychedelics like LSD, but is infused with a much more digital appearance. While the experience with the D MT tends to be very visual, the 5 MeO from DMD is more of a change of perspective. The full effect of ayahuasca is superimposed by normal reality, while inhaled or injected DTA is much more dissociative.
The plants that contain DMT are not illegal, but once it is extracted, it becomes an illegal substance. It is quite easy to vaporize it and end up with an air chamber full of white DMT vapors.
As with all drugs, DMT is typically taken as a white powder that can be smoked in a pipe or brewed into a hallucinogenic drink such as ayahuasca or yage. Many often confuse it with the 5-Method -N – N – dimethyltryptamine, which is also a compound of hallucinatory inogens, but should not be confused with DMT.
DMT is consumed by tens of thousands of psychonauts around the world as a form of recreational psychedelics. Ayahuasca, DMT, MDMA and psilocybin mushrooms can take the user on a wild, mental bending ride that can open the senses and deepen the connection with the spirit world. The experience is therefore much more intense than the hallucination in a traditional psychedelic experience such as LSD or MDMA. DMT trips can take you to a place or to a completely different world, as opposed to a change in the relationship to the one you already exist in. So the experiences are more like a journey to another world than a typical psychedelic journey in the traditional sense of the word. Ayahuacoa’s journey is much longer than a DMT journey and involves deeper emotions and insights.
