Several years ago I heard about DMT from a friend and decided if I ever got the opportunity I would try it. The years passed (probably close to 8 years is my guess) and the opportunity never arose. Other psychedelics I have had the experience of trying are mushrooms (more times than I can count), LSD (4 times), 2C-B (twice), and DXM (countless times).
Now a few months ago I got a new interest in DMT. I told my girlfriend about it, and we both did plenty of research on its effects (she decided she wanted to try it as well), and discovered how easy to acquire the things for a full spectrum extraction (jim jam as dubbed by the online masses) with nothing but food safe ingredients available all over the place, so thats what we did.
So flash forward to sampling time. Both of us are a little nervous, but mostly very excited (this is the psychedelic of psychedelics after all) and we don't want to go for a full on breakthrough for our first time, we just want to dip our toes in. We each load an amount of the oily red residue on a small bowl of weed and commence to smoking..... From this point on I will only describe my experience as I did not experience my girlfriends experience.
I feel nothing but the weed at first (in fact I found the weed to make it harder to smoke) but half way through the bowl it starts getting hard to smoke. I definitely have the anxious come up feeling associated with other psychedelics, especially mushrooms. Everything appears to want to crawl and things feel slightly trippy for just a few minutes.... Thats about it for that bowl.
So a few minute later we decide to try again, this time using a dab rig instead of putting it on a bowl. My girlfriend heats it up for me and I take a respectable sized dab of it. The nail was a little too hot so it caught on fire at first, but I managed to save it and continue my hit, a long slow hit that tasted the way tire shops smell (which is kind of neutral in its enjoy-ability.... It's not bad, just weird) and I sit back in the recliner.... This time I felt immense euphoria radiating from the bottom of my spine through out the rest of my body.... I feel so amazing I really don't notice too much going on visually, but I definitely feel like I'm trippin. I cannot put into words how amazing this felt. Also, it was extremely hard to get up until it wears off a little bit (no more than five minutes), and my breathing felt irregular, but this was not concerning as I felt so wonderfully euphoric. It finally wears off and my girlfriend takes her turn, more or less having the same experience .
Now that we had 'gotten our toes wet' and 'understood' what the drug felt like we decided we wanted to experience at least a little bit of the visuals people talk about... This time I'm taking two (smaller than the last one) dabs of it. We are back to baseline (though just barely) for this one as well.
So my girlfriend heats the nail up for me again (this time I wait a second for it to cool before dabbing) and I start inhaling, just as long and slow, then she takes the bong to heat the nail up again and I hold the hit in until she hands it back to me and again I inhale long slow and deep. I feel light headed by the time I even start the second hit this time, and I hold the second hit in as long as I can. I'm tripping balls on the exhale. I sit back with my eyes shut. This does not last long, the euphoria is so intense it's a little scary. It feels as if every molecule, or indeed every atom in my body is vibrating so intensely that I'm just going to explode, or disintegrate into the air ( my girlfriend tells me later I kept grabbing at my arms and my stomach like I was trying to hold myself together) To my eyes, I am frying really hard, I can't describe any distinct visuals as my body high was so overwhelming I couldn't focus on anything else. Intense vibrations, intense warmth, my stomach feels like a stormy sea (I was concerned a little about throwing up, but I didn't) The only words I can utter when it hits me is the classic line you'll see on the live experiences on youtube.... Holy Fuckin Shit!!! I am able to speak again once I come down a little bit and don't feel like I'm about to disitegrate from existence, but I still have a hard time expressing how it felt (especially without trying to make it sound frightening)
This entire trip, indeed all of the smaller ones as well, had no distortion of time, but was shockingly intense nonetheless. All in all, none of the trips lasted longer than ten minutes. Other than the first bowl loaded on top of the weed we took turns dosing, and we still did all three of these experiences within one hour. I would describe my two hits as easily three times or four times as strong as the one hit. This stuff is intense, no joke. My girlfriends did get to experience visuals on her two hits, and she came back in tears from the beauty of what she saw, mind you neither of us broke through, and we are both utterly astonished by what we experienced. We do intend to do this again and break through, but I am very grateful for our caution. This chemical deserves all due respect, as even a threshold dose is indescribably powerful.
