If you’ve considered trying to smoke DMT, you’ve likely experimented with hallucinogens before and now have a healthy curiosity to try stronger things. Therefore, your hallucinogenic sense shudders at the mention of this mysterious drug that is said to be is able to make your soul somersault in unknown worlds and incomprehensible dimensions for the human mind. So read on to find out what to expect from DMT, the spiritual experiences it provides, and its effects. First of all, one thing must be made clear: DMT is not to be taken lightly. We are talking about one of the most powerful hallucinogenic compounds known to man. It has a place in its own right among the major entheogens, including 5-MEO-DMT, ayahuasca, ibogaine, psilocybin mushrooms, and Salvia divinorum. The N, N-DMT provides you with a short but amazing trip that many compare it to a holographic, multidimensional, out-of-body and near-death experience. Visiting the realms this substance can take you to could change how you perceive life forever. Therefore, by smoking DMT the experience can have a great impact on you. It has a molecular structure quite similar to psilocin, the active agent in psilocybin mushrooms. In fact, some users compare DMT trips to higher doses of psilocybin. The 4-hydroxy molecules of psilocin allow it to be metabolized when administered orally, while the free base N, N-DMT is broken down in the body by monoamine oxidases. For this reason, plants containing inhibitors of these enzymes (such as Banisteriopsis caapi, rich in monoamine oxidase inhibitors) are used to prepare ayahuasca and allow DMT to cross the blood-brain barrier. Next I will explain how to smoke DMT, the experience offered by trips with this substance, and the difference between DMT and changa. Browse this content

How to smoke DMT safely

DMT can be smoked in its normal crystalline form, or brewed with herbs such as Banisteriopsis caapi, mullein, passion flower, or peppermint to create a more balanced and easy-to-digest blend called changa. The creation of this mixture was motivated by how difficult it was to smoke DMT. In fact, the smell of smoke is often compared to burning plastic, while the sensation of inhaling it is similar to melting your lungs. Quality of experiences Leaving aside the ease of smoking, changa also provides richer and more stable experiences. By varying the herbs used, it is possible to highlight different aspects of the trip and make it less overwhelming. In this way, the changa often used to facilitate smoother experiences. However, an increase in the percentage of DMT in the mix can lead to intense astral travel. If you plan to smoke using a hookah, you can make a simpler form of changa by sandwiching DMT between two layers of herbal mixture.
If you choose to smoke pure crystal of DMT, it is advisable to prepare your lungs doing breathing exercises for a few minutes. In this regard, it should also help to massage your chest and thymus area as much as possible while you breathe in and out.

You will achieve the best results if you can smoke a full dose of DMT in one hit.

However, it will be difficult for you to retain such strong smoke, so you will probably need several tries to refine your technique.

Efficacy and dose of DMT

Assuming you use proper technique, the amount of DMT you should consume is as follows: less than 20 milligrams is considered a low dose, between 20 and 35 milligrams is a normal dose, and above 35 milligrams is a strong dose. If you are going to smoke using a pipe (dry or water), remember that a significant amount of DMT can be lost due to various factors such as condensation, overcooking or shallow inhalation. Therefore, you will need larger amounts than what I just recommended. However, the best thing is always to start for the lowest doses (10-15 milligrams) and determine what your tolerance is as you refine your technique. The procedure for smoking DMT consists of the following:

  • Load your pipe with the desired amount of DMT or changa
  • After oxygenate your lungs for a few minutes, start turning on the DMT when you are in the middle of your last exhale.
  • Twist the lighter to ensure a homogeneous combustion. If you use the sandwich method, make sure that the flame does not touch the glass directly, as in this case it will burn at too high a temperature and can have negative effects.
  • As soon as the DMT starts to burn and you have finished exhaling, begin to slowly absorb smokeBecause if you drink too much at once, you will end up coughing.
  • Try to take the entire dose with one puff And as soon as you can’t absorb any more, hold onto it. If you are going to take several tokes, you will have to take one more when you feel like you can’t take it anymore. The time to put down the pipe will be when you can no longer see the flame in relation to the load. Make sure your caregiver is present to keep the lighter and pipe (which will be hot) away from you.
  • Start counting and see if you can get to 5.

Keep in mind If you use a water or glass pipe, you may burn the DMT at too high a temperature, losing some of it and may cause you to cough or vomit. Vaporizer Pipes An increasingly popular, more efficient, comfortable and safe way to ingest DMT is to use vaporizer pipes like the VaporGenie or the Firewood. Many vapers also defend the use of this method to take DMT, stating that the necessary doses are between 5 and 10 times lower than using similar systems, to which they say they no longer want to return.

Your motives

A substance as potent as DMT should be consumed with humility and respect. Before embarking on this adventure, at least the first time, try to think about what you are looking for in the experience. Do you want to get crazy, or do you have to solve or ignite something about yourself or the Universe? Some people claim to have traveled to overwhelmingly spectacular worlds where they have met incredible entities. If you find yourself in a similar scenario, it can help to have a question or two ready. Transcendent Experience A DMT journey is considered by many to be an adventure to the edge of death and / or the source of creation. So be smart and try to take advantage of your exposure to this timeless knowledge. Yes indeed, make sure you always have a caregiver in mind. Smoking DMT alone can be very dangerous: you could hurt yourself or others, especially if you have a hot pipe and a lighter nearby. In this sense, it can be useful to discuss your motivations with your caregiver, which can also be helpful when recovering from the trip.

The environment

As with most hallucinogens, when experiment in nature With DMT, the experiences are fantastic. Open field It is difficult to beat the experience you will have in a safe place. An isolated place with clean air, grass to lie on and a beautiful view to behold (or to wake up to). However, if you ingest enough DMT to achieve what is often called a “breakthrough” state (or “knock down the door”), you may not be able to see much of your surroundings. Or if you can stay conscious, it may look like a totally different world made up of energetic amazing transformations. How a trip with DMT is thoughtful, many prefer to smoke in the privacy of their bedrooms, with a caregiver present. A familiar environment provides a sense of security. In addition, the trip is usually done in a coma-like state of absence, so your own bed will be perfect. On the other hand, being indoors has the advantage of temperature control. You may feel cold at times during your trip like never before, so it’s a good idea to have warmth in case you need it. Music
Music can result nice, but it can also be an earthly influence that keeps your soul attached to your body.

When traveling with DMT, spiritual experiences are often accompanied by a ringing hum. Which can saturate or calm you, and allows you to surrender to the experience. Therefore, it may be helpful not to distract your sense of hearing with sounds from this physical world. Many believe that burning palo santo, sandalwood or white sage before the trip can generate positive energies and make the trip more profound. However, if you like incense and you don’t have any of those herbs, just using your favorite calming scent will suffice.

In any case, it is important that you have a trusted friend to take care of you.

Keep in mind that with DMT the experiences could turn out to be bad, so it is very valuable that you have someone to help you.
