Plant-Based 5-MeO-DMT Experiences and Testimonials / Re: Yopo

Are you asking where would the yopo sample be sent? If that is the question, I have a connection to a facility with an HPLC that could run an analysis on the yopo alkaloid content.

I question the source stating that yopo has only negligible amounts of 5-MeO-DMT. It may be that only the yopo seeds from Brazil were tested. That is what is easily available from online sources. I got very little effect from preparations made from these seeds. The yopo that it was like using ayahuasca and toad together. It sure seems that yopo did have 5 in it and the effect was stronger than toad alone and lasted for hours, probably due to the caapi tea. This yopo came from an isolated area of Venezuela that is off limits to outsiders. This area is known for potent yopo. Tests should be run on this yopo. It's like saying cannabis only contains 3% THC because the dirt weed they tested was weak, while some can contain 24% THC.

This would be very interesting to check, indeed! Perhaps we can do a little science project? Would it be possible to get a sample of this yopo you're talking about tested?

Welcome! Procrastination is a hard habit to break :(

I hope this place provides a good community for you to support you in your process of growth.  _/|\_

Welcome to the 5 Hive Doc Gooden.

I'm glad that you made your way here, as difficult reintegration and reactivations are some of the main reason this community was formed. We have some threads here on the forum talking about reactivations and things that can help, but I would also suggest and recommend that you track your process with working through this phase as it can help others help you and as your situation resolves it can help others that may be in your position down the road.

I'll link you over to The Reactivations Thread, which will hopefully be a good resource for you and for others that may be experiencing similar things:

Preparation and Integration / The Reactivations Thread
« on: July 15, 2019, 08:49:33 AM »
As reactivations are an issue that has come up frequently, I thought I would create a large thread that can be one place for reactivation discussions to take place.

Here are some snippets of info that we have around the forums thus far regarding reactivations:
Thread with good integration advice and thoughts on things one can do when experiencing reactivations:
Thanks @HumbleVoyger. I may look into somatic experiencing later down the line, but yes, yoga and particularly more rigorous physical exercise has been very beneficial in helping me to integrate/ground into my body. Things seem to be normalizing more and more, but I noted the same thing one week ago and then had another sleepless night... But ultimately it's only when going to sleep that I'm having intimations of reactivations, and mostly minor ones, relative to the prior weeks (aside from last week's sleepless night just mentioned). Mostly it's lots of intensely psychedelic activity behind closed eyes as I try to fall asleep.

I saw this posted in another integration thread by @Flux, and I think it sums up my feelings very well on things at the moment:

"Often one of the overlooked aspects of integration is the everyday mundane tasks...washing up, showering, sitting in the sun, walking to the shops, etc. people rush to embrace other spiritual modalities like Vipassana meditation, Kundalini yoga, Wim Hof breathing, etc...when what is most needed is not to facilitate any further 'awakening' but to anchor the one that 5-MeO has catalysed"

Thread with some information about reactivations and how they may occur
It appears that reactivations are most common when large doses of 5-MeO-DMT are consumed, shocking the system and creating a traumatic response that is later triggered in the form of a “reactivation”. To avoid this potentially difficult aspect of integration, using the lowest effective dose when vaporizing or using a lowest effective dose with a  route of administration that has a slower onset (such as insufflation) might be preferable. Reactivations seem to occur when people are falling asleep or engaged in meditative practices so it may be unlikely for a reactivation to happen during a presentation.

That being said, I think following those guidelines may help in preventing unwanted effects after the experience.

A thread tracking someone's experience as they worked through reactivations with suggestions
Hi there mrnothing -
it seems that physical activity helps greatly with reactivations, grounding especially but being in nature, swimming, running and yes, yoga. In terms of the blank canvas effect, this is not uncommon and can occur with other psychedelics too. What I would suggest is start trying new things in order to build up new connections to meaningful actions... learn an instrument, learn a language, try painting or drawing, or anything creative, volunteer something that could use your help... the sense of being in service is really valuable.
all the best,

Great thread on "Kundalini" type energetic activations and ideas for resourcing

Anyways that should be good to start off. Feel free to comment on any of the above topics or quotes or simply start sharing your own experiences. Hopefully this thread will be a good place for people to talk about reactivations and get help in working through issues of their own!

Great to see some Yopo reports in here. It is interesting to note that in Yopo, amounts of 5-MeO-DMT are actually quite negligible so most of the effects are likely due to bufotenine and DMT. It is interesting to hear that people find yopo experiences to have some qualities similar to 5-MeO-DMT though and these reports are always very interesting. It's also been intriguing to hear about the ever increasing popular practice of people taking ayahuasca vine before yopo to increase the effects.
