What is DMT?
N,N-Dimethyltryptamine, also known as DMT, “the spirit molecule” or “businessman’s trip”, is a powerful psychedelic drug that produces vivid hallucinations and heightened sensory experiences. It typically comes in a powdered form, ranging from pure white to brown-yellow, and can sometimes have a waxy feel. It is classified as a Schedule III drug in Canada, meaning it is illegal to possess or distribute DMT.
The main effects associated with DMT use are intense auditory and visual hallucinations, euphoria, as well as altered perceptions of reality, space and time. Physical effects include increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, chest pain, dilated pupils, dizziness and agitation. When smoked, injected, or insufflated, the effects of DMT last anywhere from five to 45 minutes. When eaten, the effects can last up to three hours.
Much like other psychedelics, DMT does not have any physical dependence potential or toxicity. Tolerance does not develop, unlike with other drugs such as opioids, which means that users do not need to take more of the drug to achieve the same high. However, the intense psychological and emotional experiences that DMT produces can be so compelling that some users can begin to develop a psychological addiction to the substance. Once this happens, seeking professional DMT addiction treatment is essential to getting your life back on track.
Important Facts About DMT
- The effects of DMT typically only last about 45 minutes to an hour, which is why it’s often referred to as a “businessman’s trip” or “45-minute psychosis”
- DMT can be snorted, eaten, consumed in a liquid form, injected, or orally inhaled
- Snorting DMT usually produces the fastest result because it allows the drug to infiltrate the serotonin receptors in the brain much more quickly
- The exact long-term effects of DMT use have yet to be determined and further studies are required
- There’s some evidence that the pineal gland gradually produces small amounts of DMT
- DMT has been found naturally occurring in small amounts in many animals and plants, including humans
- Ultimately, the user’s mental predisposition will substantially influence the type of experience they have with the drug
- It’s been used for centuries during tribal and religious rituals to help people reach a heightened state of being to help them achieve greater clarity and escape the reality, pressure and stress of their daily lives
Signs of DMT Addiction
The signs of DMT addiction can be very similar to other types of stimulant abuse. Here are a few important indicators that can help you determine whether someone you know might be addicted to DMT or any other destructive substance:
- Disjointed, incoherent thoughts
- Dissociation from reality
- Frequently dilated pupils
- A compulsive need to acquire more DMT and continue using even though they’re aware of the negative physical, social and emotional consequences
While DMT is not physically habit-forming, users can develop an addiction to the psychological and emotional impact of the drug. If you notice any of the above symptoms in yourself or a loved one, DMT addiction treatment may be required.
