5-MeO-DMT help with Depression and Anxiety And Alkoholismus.
In March of 2019, researchers from John Hopkins University surveyed 362 adults who used 5-MeO-DMT. They found that 80 percent of participants reported improvements in depression and anxiety after use.
5-MeO-DMT is most commonly associated with the Sonoran Desert Toad, Incilius alvarius. It’s sometimes even called “toad medicine” because it’s derived from this toad’s unique venom. People “milk” these toads for the secretions produced by their parotid gland.
It’s also found in other plants & animals, like the cohoba or yopo plant, and the bark from Virola trees. Indigenous peoples in South America and the Dominican Republic have consumed it by making inhalations or “snuff” from these sources.
5-MeO-DMT Trip: How Long Does It Last?
A full dose 5-MeO-DMT trip lasts between 30 and 90 minutes at most, and the majority are even significantly shorter than that.
5-MeO-DMT is Different!
It’s a derivative of DMT, meaning that they are related compounds. 5-MeO is often considered to be stronger than DMT, and consumers often report that it inspires a potent transcendent experience—devoid of visuals—rather than a highly visual experience, such as what DMT is known for.
The “God Molecule” and Mystical Experiences
5-MeO-DMT is called “the God Molecule” for a simple and yet astounding reason: It can make one feel as if they are speaking to, connected with, or becoming one with the divine. Like many other psychedelics, 5-MeO-DMT is an entheogen. An entheogen is a chemical compound that can trigger mystical experiences—feelings of intense spirituality.
But you need not be religious or spiritual to have an entheogenic experience with 5-MeO-DMT (or any psychedelic for that matter). Every person’s individual experience is unique, and “God” is merely one word to describe the connection that the drug seems to make possible. Instead of “God,” others may prefer terms like Brahman, Nirvana, Gaia, Nature, Universal Consciousness, Higher Power, or none at all. Whatever term they use, each person’s experience is ultimately different, and the meaning and interpretation of that experience is up to the individual.
