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.
