Another Drug topic. DMT
DMT is everywhere. Most make it from brazilian root bark, but there are acceptable plant species that even reach up through midwest USA. Here in Wisconsin, phalaris grass(those long prairie grasses that you make whistles out of between your thumbs) is an invasive grass covering 90% of our ground vegetation. In the spring I’m going to ask a farmer if I can help him care for his prairie in exchange for some grass. They usually keep it in check seasonally with controlled burns, so there’s really no reason not to put it to use.

My DMT trip… friend packed me a bowl of it, I hit it and held it in as long as I could, like you do with weed, and as soon as I exhaled I noticed there were different things in the room, I noticed this red flickering light and I traveled through this wire that was connected to me and this machine, the next thing I know I’m seeing geometric shapeshifting patterns grow out of the ground, the next thing I see is this alien showing me how all this stuff works, he greets me with a suggesetive motion to go through a portal. Across the room I see this portal he’s pointing at and I go through it… As far as I can tell the alien was there because he was this painting on the wall, on DMT it came out of the wall and communicated with me, so try that, try painting a creature or a vortex on a wall and smoke DMT, you will most likely hallucinate that it is a real thing, like I did.
@Nikola It’s like a lucid nap. You can take it any way you like. The pure, freebase DMT is smoked, while the salt can be snorted, injected or ingested. Either way you’re hopefully incapacitated in 15+ minutes of visionary bliss.
I’ll try to compile some factual details about a trip, but it gets so personal that the words I use to describe it wouldn’t be proper justice:
I carefully measure the same dose as always, and sprinkle it on top of some weed in a bong. I then sandwich it between another thin layer of weed. *The heating process is important; dimethyltryptamine melts and evaporates at a much lower temp than any herb you throw in with it. DO NOT torch the bowl, if the dry crystals catch fire they’re gone before you’ll be able to inhale anything. This seems to be the biggest obstacle keeping inexperienced users from having a successful trip.
I personally don’t care for a spotter or a sitter. I don’t know what one would be able to help with because the experience is so internal and personal. I can barely speak while tripping on it, much less negotiate help. I’ve never felt it necessary in the trip though, because it never goes bad. The worst to expect is a ‘gray’ trip where you didn’t note anything meaningful from your hallucinations, that you can remember anyway. I still enjoy these trips for the ‘reborn’ feeling on the comedown.
From here I could branch into many different angles of the trip depending on whether you are alone or tripping together in a small group, inside or outside, music or no music, etc. They all have so much to offer, but dmt is already pretty uncontrollable, so I get the most out of it when I eliminate variables that keep me from focusing. Being mentally and physically comfortable are important so you aren’t anxious about where the dmt will take you this time.
The bong fills with thick white smoke and I hold it, counting 1…2…3… by 4 I’m feeling it around my chest, a bouyancy that is spreading down my ribs and up my neck. I forget that I’m counting and hold it for maybe another 5 seconds, exhaling the effects down my legs and arms. My fingers feel slow as I spark up again and go for a bigger hit(you wanna clear it all within a minute, so if you took a long time heating your first hit, catch up). I hold it deep for a few seconds and am already being pulled away as I take a third.
I set down the bong and lie back, noting how fluid my movements seem, like I’m underwater or weightless. I look around the room and watch reality warp. The drywall grain starts to flow like an ocean, and the light scattered on the wall by hundreds of green LED’s in my rope light begin to glow brighter and twist around. There’s a hissing static that I just realize has been building, accelerating into a high-pitch whine. Your memory is pretty much out the window at this point, and cognition/movement is difficult. Like a dream, you slip into this sleep-state as the growing sound pops and you’re inside your head.
You’re 30 seconds in now, and the next 300 are totally mindblowing. There’s a large potential of things you could see happen, but they don’t always happen, so it’s important not to raise your expectations or you may become frustrated that it’s not what you want or that you’ve underdosed. My most recent trip was while on an MAOI that potentiates the experience even further. The acoustic music playing awakened these dancing colored balls that were spinning in a circle and pulsing from a center. Their energy growing with the momentum of the song, flaring and bouncing to the beat. It’s so beautiful that I can feel myself smiling, and the thought of my physical self smiling makes me laugh, and the sound of my voice is like a force of creation, making the colors spin and dance in a more complex way.
The scene changes and I’m in a room with a few figures acting out a dialog I can’t hear to a memory I’ve never had. The skit plays in fast forward and then gets tossed out of left field to reveal another behind it. The scene plays and once it’s over it’s thrown out. About 10 acts are played before the trip moves on(probably ~20 seconds real-time), and my mind’s scrambling to decide whether they even mattered.
The scene changes to this network of golden needles that all seem to be connected as they spin and shift at sudden angles. I’m reminded of the gears of a clock, or that I’m looking at the wiring behind reality itself.
Scene changes to this blue orb above my head. It was like a sun that I could feel the light of. I don’t remember seeing anything else, but I remember looking around the room and having my focus pulled back to the blue entity, as if commanded to pay attention like an ADD child.
During the trip everything seems more real than reality itself. Like a dream, you don’t really know, or perhaps just forget that you’re in it until you’re coming back out if it. When you comedown you immediately begin to forget what you saw and may only be able to recall certain fragments. For a few minutes I’d advise just chilling and absorbing what happened. You’ll still feel the physical rushing of adrenaline for up to an hour, but the energy is so clean, a feeling of being reborn. I’m super talkative at this part, and try to piece together the trip to find some meaning in it. I feel more tuned into my spiritual self, and focus my energy more positively for the next few days.
Start to finish, you could have your life changed in 20 minutes.
@briarxxxrose, my first trip was a pretty mild one, because I became really paranoid when the ‘fuzzy’ feeling started overcoming my body, but the next few times I took heavy doses, and the result was pure beauty.
Some people advise against ‘guiding’ the trip, but I did – at least hinted to my brain what I wanted to see, and let the powder do the rest – and it was…well, there really aren’t words for it.
I haven’t taken this drug yet and I want to when I feel ‘ready’. I want to wait a few years, when I am more mature, and have had years of meditation behind me. Also, I would only do this in a shamanic style, hopefully in the amazon. I’m talking about ayahuasca by the way.
I might. I just am pretty lazy and felt like having those that wanted to come to this thread and tell me. Plus this one is fresh so that is more likely to catch the eyes of maybe some people that just tried it. But anyway.. I’ll see what I can find on here :)
@briarxxxrose, I live on a farm outside of Pulaski Wi and have seen reed canary grass my entire life, it grows in our fields and our cows graze it fresh and from dry hay. I was recently looking for active mushrooms around here and couldn’t find any, I actually just got in from the fields hunting for them when I saw this post. What is the best way to extract the DMT from the seeds?
Fuckin’ hell! Where ARE you guys, that stuff like DMT, acid, and shrooms are plentiful?!? I feel like I live in some kind of fundamentalist zone, you can’t find nothing nowhere around here except ganja, MAYBE, if you’re lucky.
^ Great analogy. Funny that you mention it, I’ve been trying to talk my color-blind friend into trying some because I’ve been curious what he’d see. The colors are superficially vibrant and real in the trip, perhaps dmt can play a tune on his visual cortex that his rods and cones cannot.
Hmmm… I have done DMT once and the results were, um, neutral at best. I actually have ZERO recollection of my entire trip.
I have years of phycadelic drug use under my belt ranging from Shrooms and LSD, to Peruvian Torch and Baby Woodrose, but DMT is the only one that completely eluded me. I took it (smoked) and once I exhaled the only thing I sensed was sounds becoming colours, and all matter breaking down. The best way to descrive the beginning phase was as if I was being pulled away from all my bodily senses. I remember everything going white… then nothing.
I can only recall “waking up” about 20 minutes later to my body readjusting and reasserting my senses back to normal (the whiteness becoming “sounds” and “colours” etc etc). I can only assume I had an out of body experience of sorts, but I either saw something too frightening to remember, or something too amazing to even begin to comprehend. My spotters say I was completely immobile the entire time, almost like I was asleep or dead.
I would like to try again, but have become very apprehensive regarding it. Of course everyone else that tried it that day had fantastic trips that they remember in vivid details. Maybe I am just broken?
It’s pretty nice. Don’t worry about things to avoid, because if you do it properly you will leave your body, and you won’t have much control anyway. I think an unpleasant trip on dmt would be extremely rare.
I can’t wrap my head around the trips though, they’re incredibly weird and don’t make sense at all but at the same time they make perfect sense. And you don’t know if you’re just seeing crazy shit, imagining, having an encounter with your own brain, or visiting a different world, or whatever it might be that’s happening. And the senses are so distorted.
Like one trip I had, I encountered something that was either aliens or gods. They were invisible, but I somehow knew their colours and shapes, their way of communicating was completely silent but also incredibly loud. It was just a major mindfuck, and I felt completely lost, ego death and all. And at the same time the whole thing seemed so real, but I’m pretty sure it was just my imagination.
It’s a very powerful drug. You should definitely try it if you feel like it.
Do you know what your dose was?
Sometimes large doses can cause the experience to be overwhelming and those result in black-outs. 20 minutes is quite a long time for smoked free-base too (especially if you didn’t use an MAOI prior to). They usually average around 10 minutes and 15 is not unheard of. I’ve read about someone who had an unpleasant expereince and it lasted 21 minutes.
From many trip reports and experiences I’ve read about there seems to be a correlation to high dose, amount of time spent in “Hyper Space” and memory loss(of that experience).
