Thanks so much for the welcome Humble voyager. My apologies for taking awhile to reply. I spoke a little too soon about my health situation being much better. It's still kinda touch and go but it's cool. I feel like I'm being given one of the biggest tests of my life. Thanks again. Be well, Mike

Introductions/Newbies / Hi from Winnipeg
« Last post by ohmdub on May 02, 2022, 02:10:13 PM »
Hi there, I'm a dad of young kids in Winnipeg, Canada. It was a struggle to carve out time for psilocybin journeys and further investigation led me to the door of 5-MeO-DMT, whose shorter duration got me interested, but a mystical experience of nonduality reliably produced by a molecule? Sign me up. I've had the endogenous variety (aka nonchemical mystical experiences) before, twice, to enormous impact in my life, let's try exogenous. I've had one (well, two) sessions with the molecule, guided, will contemplate perhaps sharing at some point. It was tremendous.


Happy to be here to learn and share whatever gleanings I've gathered. I am concerned about the rising profile of this molecule while at the same time a part of that wave.

Introductions/Newbies / Hello Everyone

Hi All,
I am very excited to join and hear about the experiences and knowledge of others. I very recently had my first 5-MeO experience, and I feel a real need to hear from others about it as part of my integration process. I live in the SF Bay Area with my family and have a deep love and respect for the Buddhist and other spiritual practices that have brought me to this place.


With Love to All!

Greetings to everyone! Glad to be here! I am a veteran, living in Southern California. I was introduced to Bufo about 2 years ago, and have done numerous ceremonies. I have also experienced 5-MEO about 9 times. Looking forward to seeing some great discussion and experiences and making connections!

Ethics and Ecology / Re: Calling out / Calling in
« Last post by HumbleVoyager on April 11, 2022, 01:29:09 PM »
This is a great question, and an important one to ask.

Thanks for bringing this here.

I think perhaps a good place to start is to check in with the practitioner themselves and give them feedback. If they are not open to feedback or unwilling to engage in a process of repair with harmed parties, the next step would be to engage with community leaders or community members who may be able to prevent further harm to others by informing members of the community of the problem. If both of these steps are unavailable, then it would be important to find a public space or forum such as social media, email lists, or otherwise to inform the public about the individuals' unethical practices.

In general, it is very difficult to call in or call out practitioners that are not necessarily part of any specific communities. I would recommend that people only work with practitioners who have community ties so that there can be call in/call out processes in the case of harm caused.

I have gone back and forth about creating a space on this forum for practitioner call ins or call outs, but I think that it is a rather intensive process requiring significant moderation and/or mediation and I haven't felt like these forums have those resources currently available to handle that sort of space.

What thoughts do you have about it?

Thanks for your response HumbleVoyager. Very useful. I'm pretty confident regarding the integrity of the substance, but I'm going to consider the option you suggest, of getting it verified.

I have found a youtube video which gives a simple answer and instruction for conversion to salt. I think I will first try vapor, as you have talked about. I've basically come to the same conclusion you suggested: that there's some minor oxidation, which likely wouldn't be much of a problem. IMO there's a greater likelihood of accidentally taking too large a dose by using the salt which is mostly (but not completely!) avoided by vaping (carefully).

Hello and welcome!

The change in color is likely due to some oxidation of the freebase, but probably not a significant decrease in potency.

You will probably be able to vaporize it and experience effects without any noticeable differences.

You can definitely convert this into a salt form, but that isn't necessary unless you wanted to.

406-410 F is the temp where it will completely vaporize.

As always, it is best harm reduction practice to ensure that you have the correct substance. Consider sending a sample to DrugsData.org in order to get your sample tested.

Please check out our Preparations subforum, as there is some information there about various extractions. It's always good to expand our knowledge of different plant sources and methods of extraction.

Welcome!
