I always had friends and read forum posts talking about this chemical/drug and I never quite knew what it was until I did a bit of research on my own.
Wikipedia:DMT is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound of the tryptamine family. Its presence is widespread throughout the plant kingdom. DMT occurs in trace amounts in mammals (including humans), where it may putatively function as a trace amine neurotransmitter.
..It may play a role in meditating the visual effects of natural dreaming and also near-death experiences and religious visions.
DMT is considered a psychedelic and during testing, many people claim to feel a rollercoaster-esque ‘drop’ sensation along with visual hallucinations that may resemble alien realms, fleeting colors, and beautiful cities and landscapes. Many people believe that ingesting or otherwise ‘using’ DMT may connect them with the ‘astral plane’ and other levels consciousness, perhaps visually allowing them to explore their own mental landscapes.
I have never personally tried this chemical substance, but it occurs in EVERYTHING on Earth, which was a subject for arguments for scientists that didn’t consider plant life as living beings. Supposedly you can buy DMT over the net (I’m not going to link anyone to sites where you can purchase it, too risky and illegal. Also, be careful where you send your money. A lot of these so-called ‘pharmacies’ or chemical distribution companies are scams) but I will say it CAN be purchased and used via many routes of administration.
If DMT is our link to the ‘other side’, as many people call it, more so than LSD, Mescaline, Ibogaine, Peyote, or other psychedelic drugs, then it may be the key to finding out more about ourselves. I’ve always said:
“Why do we waste so much time trying to figure out if there is life on other planets-in other galaxies- when we haven’t even figured OURSELVES out yet?”
If you’re interested in DMT and want to know more about the drug, its planned uses in pharmacology, and its effects through reputable sources and studies (and also have Netflix) I suggest you check out this documentary: DMT: The Spirit Molecule
