General Discussion / Server Updates

Thanks to donations from our wonderful members, there have been significant security and server upgrades made to the 5 Hive. Pages should now be loading 500% faster than they were before, we have a new stronger encryption system, and have set up a firewall to prevent DDoS and MITM attacks.

Thank you again! Hopefully if we continue to get funds, we will be able to hire a designer to redo the layout of the site to make it easier to use and more easy to access on mobile devices.

Cheers!  <3 _/|\_ <3

Welcome to the 5 Hive. We hope you'll find information and discussions here enlightening!

I think this study was conducted because there were so many toad venom ceremonies happening at the time of the study. To be fair, in the discussion they included this bit:

"as the use of vapor from dried toad secretion containing 5-MeO-DMT through means of inhalation increases, there are several ethical and ecological considerations worth highlighting. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list of threatened species at present does not classify the Bufo alvarius toads as an endangered species. The classification dates back however to an assessment of the toad population in 2004 (Hammerson and Georgina 2004). The increasing popularity of inhalation of vapor at underground ceremonies and acknowledgement of its therapeutic potential may however affect the stability of the toad population in the long run. The increasing demand for the vapor will disturb the ecological equilibrium of the toads through the invasion of habitat, excessive milking, amphibian trafficking, and black-market dynamics (PsychedelicsToday 2018). Harassment of the Bufo alvarius toad however can be easily prevented by using synthetic 5-MeO-DMT instead of vapor from dried toad secretion containing 5-MeO-DMT. Switching to synthetic 5-MeO-DMT offers the advantage that it does not contain a cocktail of different compounds, can be produced and dosed in a standardized manner, and is therefore much safer to use in naturalistic as well as controlled research settings."

I think they made efforts in the paper to educate people about the problems associated with the use of bufo venom.

Thanks for posting this one! There's some great info in there on the constituents of toad venom since it was tested in a lab setting as well as info regarding toad facilitators.

For those who had issues accessing the site in the last two days, please know that it was a temporary lapse in SSL certificate validation and I was not able to renew the certificates until today. Thank you for understanding and let us continue the discussions!


Here's the link for an open letter containing detailed evidence of malpractice from both Octavio Rettig and Gerry Sandoval. I encourage everyone to read and consider signing this document.
