5-MeO-DMT

5-MeO-DMT is a powder made from a South American plants and is often used in Shaman rituals. It can also be extracted from a certain species of toad venom!

It is used as a recreational drug or by people who want to gain “insight” by having deeper thoughts. It is more potent than DMT but has similar effects. (Try to avoid confusing the two)

5-MeO-DMT is a psychedelic hallucinogen which means it will alter your perceptions.

Colours might seem brighter, flavours stronger and thoughts more intense or free. You might get a really strong feeling of déjà vu or a case of the giggles.

Confusion is not uncommon as you may find it difficult to concentrate on one thing or to order your thoughts

These are measured in mg and it is important not to judge a dose by eye as a little can make big difference. 5mg would be enough to feel an effect of the substance- some people will feel very strong results with this amount.

Some people snort this drug as a powder, tip the powder down their throat or mix it with juice. Snorting often causes effects to come on quicker than swallowing and it can be a more intense experience (although effects tend to last longer when the drug is swallowed)

Snorting these drugs can be very painful and they have a strong, unpleasant, taste when swallowed. Snorting means the effects will happen more quickly but also that could be more intense and last a shorter time. 

The trip can come on within 20 minutes and will last between 4-8 hours. The time taken for the trip to come on can vary- avoid redosing before feeling the effects of the first dose.
