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.
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?
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).
It was a standard dose. I heard that about the higher doses as well -same with Sativa- but this was the same as everyone else was doing, except the experienced ones who did higher.
And my time frame may be a tad skewed. probably more like 15 minutes than 20. I think 20 was from beginning to the very end, when I could actually speak and understand words again. The actual “time out” frame was more like 12-15 minutes.
Could be a high suceptability on my part I suppose.
@Cogito Indeed, the root bark has the highest alkaloid % for dry plant weight, so it’ll be the most yield for your work. I too, have been using bark; this upcoming season will be my first trial with the phalaris.
@Andy Near the capitol, Madison. And yes, it’s very nice to see so many grateful people here taking the chance to try it.
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.
okay, so ill describe my last DMT experience, set the scene: san francisco, 4/21, i woke up dazed and got on bart from oakland to sf, got to the golden gate park and met up with my friend Jesse. He said that someone was offering him DMT that day, long story short, was on hippie hill, the circle I was in was passing around a pipe not saying what it was, after they smoked it they seemed to gaze off as like they were looking at a distant sunset, the pipe got to me and i knew what it was…
I took a deep pull off the steam roller, holding it in thinking of Terrence McKenna, I exhaled. A rush unexplainable, for a second I was like “what the fuck have I done?!” it was intense, its like trying to look at something very shiny, that you cant really look right at. at least for me. I felt like I was a spirit for like 5 minutes, like realized and lived it synthetically, I truly believe all the effects are achievable without the drugs, but goddamn does it open your eyes and give you some fucking motivation (which we definitely need sometimes)…and the sick mind continues to infinite…
I personally have a difficult time getting ahold of the stuff in my area although almost all of my friends have tried it by now, and I’m pretty sad about that.
Anyone have any advice on MAKING it, and making it WELL? I’ve been told numerous times that it is honestly not difficult to make. I know there are things out there that explain it, but I’d rather have someone on here tell me that could answer potential questions.
I’ll TRY and explain my experience. Lol but it really didnt last that long.
THE VISUAL: Every time I closed my eyes, I kept seeing these really colorful outlines of what I can only describe as demons. Every time I talked, I started to feel kind of normal (like the high was going away). But When I sat there and stared at the dresser, I started to feel it again. Everything went away (including my body) but my spirit and this dresser. The outlines of the dresser where the wood connected was all very bright. It was almost sparkly. It was so beautiful. Then I stared at the wood grain. Suddenly the wood grain started to create patterns and eventually the patterns turned into a little demon guy riding a horse in the desert. It was like the wood grain was actually a TV or something.
PHYSICAL FEELING: After hitting the pipe a few times, I started to feel like my body was going numb and everything was going black(with the exception of a few very bright things). My friend was trying to get me to hit it again but I was a bit overwhelmed on how it felt. I felt like my body was almost going numb and that my spirit was coming out. I kept hearing this high pitched ringing which made it impossible to hear anything else. I felt like I could feel all the blood rushing through me. If you haven’t felt this, then there is no way to understand it. But It literally felt like my soul was trying to leave my body. Not in a scary death kind of way, but in the most amazing way possible. But it never “completely” left my body.
Anyway thats the best I can explain it.
@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.
@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?
