Psychedelics are said to expand consciousness and also to help you let go of emotional and psychological pieces of the past that may be holding you back.

Historical Uses

Over the years, psychedelics have been used as both an entheogen, to gain mystical insights, and as a tool for hundreds of tribes.

5-MeO-DMT, or more commonly called dreamer’s tea, is a powerful psychedelic that has been used for thousands of years by indigenous tribes in South America to communicate with nature and the spirit world. It has also been used by shamans to heal physical ailments and emotional concerns.

5-Meo-DMT is a psychedelic tryptamine. It is considered to be a member of the “spirit molecule family of substances, along with psilocybin mushrooms and LSD. 5-MeO-dmt was first synthesized by Dr. Albert Hofmann in the 1960s, who hoped that it would prove to be a less toxic alternative to DMT for use in humans. DMT itself is can extraordinarily potent psychedelic which can be found naturally in many plants and animals, including humans (in trace amount).

It has been used traditionally but the Chumash people of Southern California as well was other Native American tribes throughout North America for centuries. The Chumash medicine men would use it during vision quests where they would fast for days taken only water and little found, then spend several hours alone in nature. During these quests, they would smoke 5-meo-dmt through a pipe until they had visions that could help them better see the world around them or understand their place within it.

The trip

The effects of 5-MeO-DMT are intense, but they’re also short-lived. A trip lasts between 15 and 120 minutes, depending on the dose taken, but usually is around 20 minutes. As with any medicine/drug, it is recommended to always start with a low dose of around 2 mg and always have a sober sitter present. As with any psychedelic, follow the 6Ss of psychedelic use to minimize the risks of a bad experience.

Never take 5-MeO-DMT with MAOIs. At the worst, it can cause long term serious damage or be deadly.

The high starts with a rush of euphoria that can feel like a natural high or cocaine rush. Some people experience nausea or vomiting during this phase.

This stage is followed by a period of extreme body awareness and heightened senses. It’s common to feel like you are floating out of your body during this phase, which is why many people call 5-MeO-DMT “the alien drug.”

The third phase of the trip is characterized by hallucinations and visions. These can be vivid and realistic, but they’re not always clear or stable, making them difficult to describe afterwards.

After the effects subside, users often feel tired, which makes sense considering all the energy they’ve expended during the trip (perhaps running around trying to escape from imaginary monsters). Sometimes afterglow effects can last for several hours after taking 5-meo-dmt. Shortly after coming to, users will be completely back to normal… except for the benefits…
