DMT: The Thinking Man’s Moonshine?

Bathtub

Via Slidewave:

Did you know that you are presently ‘holding’ a schedule 1 psychedelic drug in your brain right now?  Unfortunately as soon as that shit is anywhere other than in your brain, it’s as illegal as Heroin, or Crack.

You may be wondering what it is.  Well, psychnautical guru and all around interesting guy, Terence McKenna said DMT was the most shocking thing a human can consume this side of the yawning grave.  Coming from a guy who was to psychedelics what Lil’ Wayne is to ‘Sizzurp’, this is quite an astonishing claim.

Due to its difficulty to get a hold of, some have gone through the work of figuring out how to get this mystical substance in their expanding little minds.  A friend of mine was one of those people.  He, like many others had been hearing wonderful and sometimes terrifying stories of DMT’s transformational power.  He had read books like The Cosmic Serpent, Supernatural and DMT: The Spirit Molecule and watched all kinds of youtube stuff.

By this time, something in him just had to make his first encounter with DMT happen.  It’s not like you can just score some on a street corner and it’s not exactly an easy thing to casually bring up, so with no other option seemingly available, he did what any resourceful young man would do; he made it himself.

    someone else’s trip report, indeed. I concur!

    Anyone have experience synthesizing DMT? Whats the difficulty level?

    • echar

      Have you googled it?

      • Sergio Poalsky

        Yes, i know the syntheis method. But actually performing the chemistry is different then reading it.

        • echar

          I wasn’t trying to be smart with you. I’ve no chemistry experience, and I certainly wouldn’t trust my physical and mental health to something like this. I know a dude that tried to make LSD, he ended up melting his teeth somehow.

            Sounds like a story from the daily mail.

          • echar

            I know it sounds fantastical, but it really happened. He didn’t completely melt them, mind you.

    • Ted Heistman

      I know someone who did it. I think if you can make wine you can figure out how to make DMT from mimosa hostilis.

      • InfvoCuernos

        I know “someone” who has tried home – synthesized DMT batches from two different people and both turned out to be bunk, either that or “someone’s” pineal gland is broke. Like any other drug manufacture, not fool-proof.

      • symbiont

        Synthing DMT is not the same as extracting it from mimosa hostilis or some other plant. Two entirely different processes and levels of difficulty.

        • Sergio Poalsky

          Ah yes sorry, I meant DMT extraction.

    • Aleph Omega

      Extracting it is easy. If you can cook from a recipe, you can extract it. From what I’ve heard, it’s similar to making meth. Maybe they should call DMT “the thinking man’s meth?” Lol… Then again, maybe not.

      • Sergio Poalsky

        Ive seen one or two batches that others have tried to make (using an extraction method). They did not end up with crystals, they looked more like brown tar, looked a bit like heroin.

    • Monkey See Monkey Do

      Synthesizing crystal DMT is more difficult than making wine, plus its a much different process. Its primarily a matter of using a volatile solvents such as naptha and using it in a levelling effect process. There are many instructions around. Start with erowid. The first thing to do is start growing your own DMT-containing plants or trees, of which there are many.

    > the perceptive character I knew as myself floated in a Technicolor clusterfuck

    I think pot is the thinking man’s moonshine
    DMT is the thinking man’s LSD

    • Monkey See Monkey Do

      DMT and psi mushrooms seem to precipitate

      ‘external intelligent entities’. LSD seems more personal related, perhaps better for mind programming. They all leave the user with little self-control and require self surrender at the right dose though.

  • symbiont

    Calling dmt “the thinking mans moonshine” is retarded.

    • echar

      Calling something retarded is sophomoric at best, and definitely insulting. Please think before using your vocabulary.

    Must try again, I got stuck in the cosmic waiting room 3x’s…. For shame… Even Salvia no talk to me. Just slipped behind my mask laughing all the way down.

  • CosmicAmazing

    I always wanted to try DMT, still do. However, the only way I know how to acquired it is to make it. I have the skills, for sure. I’ve made many wonders through the magic of chemistry (no not meth!). Though, as illegal substances go, I’ve only made concentrated forms of THC; BHO, RSO, Honey Oil, etc.. I think extracting DMT is a lot more difficult and time consuming.
