WHAT IS DMT?
DMT or N,N-DMT is a substitute of tryptamine that occurs in many plants and animals and which is both a derivative and a structural analog of tryptamine. It is use as a recreational psychedelic drug and by various cultures for ritual purposes as an entheogen. It has a rapid onset, intense effects, and a relatively short duration of action. For those reasons, it can be call a “business trip” during the 1960s in the United States, as a user could access the full depth of a psychedelic experience in considerably less time than with other substances such as LSD or psilocybin mushrooms.
If you inhale or inject, the effects last a short period of time: about five to 15 minutes.
DMT can produce vivid “projections” of mystical experiences involving euphoria and dynamic hallucinations of geometric forms.
DMT is from in many species of plants often in conjunction with its close chemical relatives 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) and bufotenin (5-OH-DMT).
Furthermore plants with such properties are commonly use in indigenous Amazonian shamanic practices.
It is usually one of the main active constituents of the drink ayahuasca.
Some occur as the primary psychoactive alkaloid in several plants including Mimosa tenuiflora, Diplopterys cabrerana, and Psychotria viridis.
Also you can find some as a minor alkaloid in snuff made from Virola bark resin in which 5-MeO-DMT is the main active alkaloid.
In addition psilocin and its precursor psilocybin, are active chemical in many psilocybin mushrooms.
EFFECTS OF DMT
First, any Induce DMT experiences can include visual, auditory, tactile, and proprioceptive distortions and hallucinations, and other experiences that, by most firsthand accounts, defy verbal or visual description.
Examples include perceiving hyperbolic geometry or seeing Escher-like impossible objects.
Comparing to other sensory modalities the most affected was the visual.
Participants report visual hallucinations, fewer auditory hallucinations and specific physical sensations
progressing to a sense of bodily dissociation, as well as to experiences of euphoria, calm, fear, and anxiety.
Strassman also stress the importance of the context where the drug has been taken.
It has no beneficial effects of itself, rather the context when and where people take it plays an important role.
It appears that DMT can induce a state or feeling where the person believes to “communicate with other intelligent-life forms.
High doses produce a state that involves a sense of “another intelligence” that people sometimes describe as “super-intelligent”.
