DMT, the abbreviation of Dimethyltryptamine, powerful, naturally occurring hallucinogenic compound structurally related to the drug LSD
(lysergic acid diethylamide). DMT is found in over 60 different plants, either in the bark, roots, leaves, or flowers. Terence McKenna has referred to DMT as “the commonest hallucinogen in all of nature”.
DMT blocks the action of serotonin (a transmitter of nerve impulses) in brain tissue. It is inactive when taken by mouth and produces effects only when injected, sniffed, or smoked. When smoked, DMT produces brief yet intense visual and auditory hallucinations that have been described by users as an alternate reality.
DMT was first found to be psychedelic by the Hungarian chemist Stephen Szára in the 1950s. In the 60s it was discovered in the human body,
with research suggesting it is synthesized in the lungs and the pineal gland in the brain. It is now believed to be widespread throughout the natural kingdom, in thousands of plants, and in every mammal that has been investigated so far.
The drug is known as the “spirit molecule” because of the way it alters the human consciousness and produces hallucinations that have been likened to a near-death experience.
It is also the active ingredient in ayahuasca, a traditional Amazonian plant medicine used to bring spiritual enlightenment.
Researchers believe the drug might help loosen the brain’s fixed pathways, which can then be “reset” with talking therapy afterward.
Dr. Routledge likened the drug to “shaking a snow globe” – throwing entrenched negative thought patterns up in the air which the therapy allows being resettled into a more functional form.
But this hypothesis still needs to be proven.
HOW IS A DMT TRIP?
A DMT trip transports you to another reality. Users report access to a completely different plane of consciousness. Buy DMT in Australia
Curiously, all DMT trips are consistently reported as taking part in several stages. In the first stage – within the first 30 seconds after smoking – users consistently report a buzzing in the ears and then a distinct sound of ‘cellophane being ripped apart’ (their sense of reality being torn apart, perhaps!). In the second stage – at around the 1-minute mark – users ‘breakthrough’ into ‘DMT hyperspace’. This is where the real strangeness begins – which can only really be adequately described by the relaying of users’ own experiences. On top of this, a DMT trip involves intense visual hallucinations.
