Scary, hot new drug called ‘spirit molecule’

Post by kocdim » Sun Apr 29, 2018 9:12 am

WASHINGTON – It’s one of the most popular new hallucinogenic drugs being smoked by young people around the world, with many users reporting “spiritual encounters” with entities that sound a lot like demons.

And now, Johns Hopkins University is studying the alarming effects of DMT, or Dimethyltryptamine, asking volunteers who have taken the drug about encounters they may have had with “seemingly autonomous beings or entities.”

One researcher characterized DMT as a “spirit molecule.”

So bizarre are the effects that users have described crossing into another world and seeing “machine elves,” aliens or cartoon cats. One woman reported being swarmed by apparently alive Slinky toys.

The research team is headed by Roland Griffiths, a behavioral biologist with a history of studying psychedelic substances that produce “mystical-type and near-death experiences.”

DMT is a “tryptamine” molecule that occurs naturally in many plants and animals but has been synthesized since the 1930s. Users often smoke the substance and report almost immediate hallucinogenic effects. .....

One regular user, Terence McKenna, had this to say about the experience: “What arrests my attention is the fact that this space is inhabited. You break into this space and are immediately swarmed by squeaking, self-transforming elf-machines … made of light and grammar and sound that come chirping and squealing and tumbling toward you.”

Others have described interactions with non-human beings, describing them as “jokers,” clowns, aliens or “helpers.”

This stuff has been around a while. Trips last about 20 minutes and then over.

DMT is fucking weird, other hallucinogens at least take place in the world you inhabit. I personally would liken it to reality suddenly becoming a stained-glass window.

Not sure why they are calling it "new". It was around in London 20 years ago but was always difficult to come by, it was around £200 a gram but a hit was only 1/10 of a gram or less. It is synthesized from two plants, these two plants can vary wildly from place to place but can be found in pretty much any region.

90 year old drug = new?

It's also added to ayahuasca brews iirc.

Scary but fun.
