One should not attempt to perform alkaloid extractions or other home chemistry without first having an understanding of safe handling, risks associated with different solvents, procedures, and equipment. Risks include burns, cancer, lung damage, flammability, and explosion.]
I did an easy vinager extract using some fresh delosperma cooperi I picked out of the front yard. I let the plant matter soak in the 1part vinager, 2 part water for 1 week. I then strained through a sock into a glass jar. I did a solvent pull using d-limo. After discarding the solvent I poured this concoction into a glass baking dish to let dry. I wasn't sure what my final yield would be due to the lack of info available on the Internet about the DMT in delosperma. I ended up with a huge amount of orange crystals at the bottom. After scraping I found out I had accumulated about 2 grams of crystal.
I placed a small amount in my pipe, heated it for a second to burn off the acetate, and then drew a long smooth hit. The crystal bubbled and popped. I waited a few seconds and the took another hit. I waited for the flash... But nothing.
I decided to break off another chunk. This time one roughly the size of a kidney bean. I got about 4 hits. This time when I closed my eyes I felt as if I was floating. All the while I saw grey and white patterns unfold, warp, and transform. Definitly not a DMT trip, but an effect nonetheless. I did this during summertime and I read somewhere that these plants produce little to no DMT during this season. I will do some more extractions during spring, winter, and fall to see if I get different results.
