This was to be my first DMT experience. An attempt had previously been made at producing ayahuasca, but had caused only nausea and threshold effects. In this instance the DMT was chemically extracted from M.hostilis and was of approximately 95 % purity. My friend S was introducing this to me, having taken this same extraction before and undertaken several ayahuasca ceremonies in Peru.
In terms of experience I have taken a huge number of psychedelics in the past, including many experiences with high doses of LSD, mescaline (San Pedro), mushrooms (cubensis, hawaiian), 2C-E, 2C-I...., and consider myself extremely aware of the conditions required for a good experience on a psychedelic. This trip took place at my friend S's house, a beautiful country house surrounded by fields. I have tripped here many times and am extremely comfortable in the setting.
We prepared a tea from some B.caapi in a ritualistic way, as might be done when preparing true ayahuasca. In addition we took several gel caps containing ground B.caapi. 45 minutes later we took gel caps containing the DMT extract, and watched some comedy on DVD. After 35 mins (one episode) I felt some stomach awareness.
Nausea continued to build, coming in waves, sometimes I would feel as though purging were imminent, sometimes I was up and dancing.
sometimes I would feel as though purging were imminent, sometimes I was up and dancing.
After 1 hour 5 mins I purged, while in the middle of describing how after 1 hr 20 mins I would force myself to purge. My friend S had eaten some shrooms ten minutes before and purged 10 minutes later. I had not taken any shrooms at this point.
After purging the nausea quickly passed and I was rapidly coming up, with vivid colours and enhancement of music. At this point S and me each took one sugar cube of LSD (100 ug). Half an hour later I took my shrooms, and threw up as soon as they touched my stomach.
The experience was very different from other psychedelics, I felt extremely sober, even as my senses showed me that I was anything but. There was constant euphoria, and as the acid came up there was additionally an abundance of energy, and much psy-trance listened to.
At about t +2 hours me and S began to smoke numerous joints of blueberry weed, and having rolled 5, set of for a walk across the fields, taking a route that we have walked before. This walk was an amazing experience, and I was able to see the energy fields surrounding all of the plants, visible as a black nothingness (which is unusual, on mushrooms I have occasionally seen it as a white shimmer). Upon reaching the top of a hill we stopped to look at the moon, which was a few days away from full. During this period I experienced a hallucination of a vine crawling up my left leg. Attempting to brush this away I experienced what can only be described as a tactile hallucination as I felt these strange beads on the top of my thigh, which brushed off all at once and vanished. The touch made my hand tingle for a second or two.
Towards the end of this walk, which lasted about 1 hr I saw blood on my arm in the dark. Worried that I had cut myself I tasted it, and it tasted like blood. Examination using the flame of a lighter revealed that there was no blood. In the dark again the blood coalesced into a tattoo pattern on my arms, which was extremely clear and seemed very important. Around now I became aware of spirits flowing around me and S, and sometimes into or out of us. I believed for a while that I could cause nearby animals to feel threatened and to move to escape, merely by using my mind and simple hand gestures (that the animals could not see).
Upon returning inside and listening to music, I reached the conclusion that God must exist. Although I have once experienced a belief in God on a (relatively mild) LSD trip, this was much more convincing. As far as I can tell this belief was caused by the feeling that I was being embraced by a female entity that would protect me from all harm, and ensure I was always happy. It may also have been triggered by Shpongle, and the buddha statue I was looking at (but the God was not Buddha). Throughout the entire experience there was a feeling of being held and protected by a female presence, and despite the strength of the experience it felt very natural and easy, more so than I find typical shroom or acid trips.
The lasting impression is that I got a view of a spirit world not normally visible to me. As a pragmatic scientist I have often told myself that the molecule is only unlocking my imagination -ie I am imagining spirits around me. Although this is still my belief, DMT (with LSD) was far more realistic, the hallucinations felt less like they came from inside, and more as though I was seeing the truth about the outside world.
This represents my favourite drug experience, and I intend to repeat it next weekend, without LSD, but with shrooms taken at the same time as DMT.
