||(powder / crystals)
Often hearing that DMT is similar to 5-MeO-DMT, so when I saw it offered, I thought that I would give it a try.
I researched it, and knew that the set and setting was important. I was in my bedroom, had a new crack pipe with the bulb at the end and small hole. I melted the powder, and it began to smoke. The smell is like a cross between an old jockstrap and a chicken coop. I kept thinking of my grandparents' farm.
After having smoked 5mg apprehensively a few days before, I felt dizzy, but nothing that amazing.
At about 12g, the sensation was similar, just stronger. There was a very strong feeling of nausea, and a high feeling, similar to Poppers, kind of, and a bit of a high, stoned feeling. There is a sense of ego loss, but the feeling of have fainting, or purposely hyperventalated and held breath, that is the sensation.
It's not exactly the DMT visitation of machine elves that one hears about. It isn't like Aya guiding me or taking me into a dream of the jungle.
Rather, it feels like being poisoned.
A few notes:
1. I found it difficult to melt and smoke it without burning it. I tried using a lighter (and may need more than one because I have to keep a flame under it), I tried using a torch lighter, and I tried putting the flame above the hole and sucking in to just get the heat. I got some smoke, but it burned very easily. While I measured xgrams in the bowl each time, it's not like I smoke it until it was all gone, so I can't be sure of the exact amount smoked, only the exact amount insufulated.
2. I smoked a bowl of cannabis about an hour or two later because I was going to a 3D movie, and it hit me hard, which wasn't too cool navigating your way downtown on the subway.
3, It makes me feel horny, but it also gives me major shrinkage, and impotence, because it seems to constrict me blood vessels. I have tried crystal meth out of curiosity, and similarly, I wasn't wowed by it, and it had the same anti-Viagra physical reaction while making me horny. What's the point?
A 3rd time I insufinlated 10grams, and it is much easier to navigate, but still, is that all there is? I just feel kind of spaced out?
I am a big fan of mushrooms, Ayahuasca, and Cacti, because there are very educating teachers. LSD is interesting and I can certainly learn something from it as well, but this substance I would equate to a strong Poppers high (that makes me feel nauseated and impotent.)
I was kind of disappointed. I may go higher in my dose, but don't know if it really has anything to offer.
With LSD or Mushrooms, I usually like the low dose, and want to know what happens when I take more.
For this, it is kind of cold, vague, dizzy, and sickening, so it hardly makes me want to say, 'Gee, I wonder what happens if I smoke 5g more!'
Like Meth, I know that it's really popular, but after trying it, I felt like, 'Yeah, it makes me horny, and I can't stay up for 24 hours, but it's not that great. If anything, I feel dehydrated, sexually frustrated, tweeky, and obsessive compulsive.'
I'm not sure why this chem is popular at all, especially with such bad side effects, and seemingly little reward.
