DMT, or N, N-dimethyltryptamine, is a natural psychedelic compound in some plants and animals. It is one of the most powerful psychoactive substances known to man and has been used for spiritual, therapeutic, and recreational purposes for thousands of years. While illegal in most countries, it is still widely used and has a strong following among psychedelic enthusiasts. But it is known for its intense visual and auditory hallucinations and ability to produce powerful out-of-body experiences. While it is not considered dangerous or addictive, it is important to understand the risks associated with its use.
What does DMT naturally contain?
Major plant genera containing DMT include Phalaris, Delosperma, Acacia, magic mushrooms, Desmodium, Mimosa, Virola, and Psychotria. Still, DMT has been found even in seemingly innocuous sources, such as citrus leaves (Servillo et al., 2012 ), and in the leaves, seeds and inner bark of mimosa tenuiflora.
