DMT has a very strong and unusual smell and taste which people have likened to burnt plastic and new shoes.
How to take DMT;
Because DMT is a very harsh and potent drug to smoke, it is sometimes mixed with herbs – such as ayahuasca – to make changa. Each batch of changa is different depending on what herbs are used, so strengths vary.
The South American plant, chacruna, contains DMT and sometimes mixed with the ayahuasca plant to make the shamanic brew, ayahuasca.
DMT can be prepared for injecting, and this is particularly dangerous.
Crushed up into a powder and snorted.
Also known for giving users a very intense ‘trip’ – the name given to the experience of taking psychedelic drugs.
The world appears very distorted when you trip on DMT: colours, sounds, objects and even time can seem very strange. And some people also experience out-of-body experiences.
