With MED psychedelics becoming increasing respectable and lucrative, I spoke to University of New Mexico psychiatrist Rick Strassman about DMT, a short-acting hallucinogen sometimes called the “God molecule:“
“One of the most impressive hallmarks of the DMT experience is that it feels more real than real. Everyday reality feels like a dim shadow, as it were. That’s one of the unique aspects of DMT. Even, when you take a large dose of LSD or a large dose of psilocybin, you pretty much know you’ve taken a drug. But with DMT, you’re completely transported into this free standing, separate level of reality. That’s a very common description…
The effects peak in about five minutes. They start fading at about 12 to 15, and you’re down pretty much within the half hour.”
