Today was not an average day. I woke up still groggy and recovering from the unbelievable weekend that was Phil Lesh & Friends. After taking a test I walked home with no intention of smoking 5-MeO-DMT, yet…
My friend John calls me and asks if I would like to smoke some N, N-DMT and I gladly agreed. The DMT was excellent and we ripped it through a bong on a bed of fine blueberry cannabis. My tapestry came alive and I saw a woman birthed from a rose in my mind. After our trips we continued smoking herb and discussing our experiences. I’ve been smoking DMT for years now and have always enjoyed the experience, I’ve learned to love myself and everything around me with it as an incredible tool, so I had some experience. John, in passing conversation brings up the magic toad; I mention that the toad venom is 5-MeO-DMT and he responded: “oh I have a half gram of that!” Oh jeez…
We come back from his apartment and prep the bong again. The drug was a white powder that resembled MDMA so I hesitated. This was both of our first experiences with this substance but John was not hesitant. We had read stories of 5-MeO being super potent so we started with small doses
we started with small doses
. After some pleasant body highs we upped the anti. John proceeded to breakthrough on my couch saying only “oh it’s good, oh it’s soooooooooo good.” Halfway through his trip my friend Jack walks into my apartment without knocking. On N, N-DMT this would have wrecked any trip but John was calm, speaking in non-sensible circles. I packed a fair amount on yet another bowl of cannabeauty and retired to my room while John came back from his trip and chilled with my other friend Jack.
I did my nervous breathing as usual and melted the white substance into a milky goo until the stink reached my nose. I hit the bong and closed my eyes. The come up is so much different than N, N-DMT in that… well there is none. One minute I'm sober waiting for the come up and the next I'm peaking.
One minute I'm sober waiting for the come up and the next I'm peaking.
It took me by surprise and I blacked out. I remember my consciousness tore away from my physical being in a way that could only be described as unpleasant. It was like being pulled forcibly from my world and thrown into another. My spirit was suddenly in a pink fleshy room (Think Jabu Jabu’s Belly from OoT) with a movie screen. I sat quietly and watched shapes interact with each other. I remember a Mobius Strip made of multi-colored cubes, a giant purple sphere being charged with purple and green electricity, and a large amount of snakes crawling down some sort of motherboard. Now while this entire experience was taking place I knew I was lying on my bed. I could feel a part of me in the real world and a part of me in the 5-MeO-DMT realm, this was a sensation that was also very uncomfortable. I awoke about 5 minutes later in a daze.
N, N-DMT always leaves me with a sense of wonder and connectedness to the universe, a sense that life is meant to be lived and loved. This was not the case with 5-MeO. I was so frustrated and confused by the completely random images forced in front my eyes that I couldn’t walk straight. I joined my friends in the living room and sat on the couch. “how was that man?” “I… just… I don’t even know.” We all ended up breaking through and discussing our trips afterword. I developed a headache and became irritable, I honestly wanted nothing but sleep. I was tired, confused, unsatisfied by the random geometric interactions that had no meaning.
In summation N, N-DMT is beautiful and fantastic… 5-MeO-DMT is draining and incredibly confusing. I enjoyed my experience today but the after-effects are too incapacitating. Worth a try, but I doubt it’ll receive a repeat for me anyway.
