Hello and thanks for this community!

Im very interested in psychedelics in general, and also in 5-MeO-DMT.  I've been working with plant testing, doing analysis of plants and toad extract that contain 5-MeO-DMT.  Personally though I only have little personal experience with 5-MeO-DMT. I've smoked it twice over a decade ago, remember it feeling powerful, but its hard to remember specific details. I definitely didn't 'breakthrough' (or whatever the 5-MeO-DMT equivalent is).

I have some 5-MeO-DMT at home (synthetic) but havent mustered up the courage (or desire) to smoke it yet. Maybe sometime later this year.  Either way im fascinated by the substance, the plant/animal sources and the culture. Hope to have some good communication with people here.

Amazing!

Could you please share with us what results you have had in your various testing processes? I think that would be an incredible resource to this community.

Thank you for joining us here :)

Thanks for the welcome

So far I've only tested three potential sources... One was Diplopterys cabrerana, which I've found no 5-MeO-DMT despite subjective reports people claimed there was something different in that particular plant, it only had DMT.. Then I've tested some Anadenanthera peregrina var. falcata, which I've found one source (I can dig it up if there's any interest) claiming it had high 5-MeO-DMT amounts, but the sample I've tested had mostly bufotenine, not 5-MeO-DMT...  Then I've also tested a Bufo alvarius extract that was being used by Octavio Rettig (who later came to be the center of some controversy) in his cerimonies. In that case it was a pretty clean 5-MeO-DMT profile in the extract.

Im certainly willing to do more tests in the future, specially if there was any plant that could be sustainably harvested, ideally if it could be grown somewhere that wasn't just limited to the tropics.

Yes, I think this is definitely the way forward as we identify other plants. I wonder about Anadenanthera colubrina?
Would you be able to post some of your test results in the Science section?

Tests in the future would be great, perhaps we can organize this to be done based on a list of plant sources that are known (according to science) to contain a certain range of 5-MeO-DMT. I was writing about this in this thread: https://forums.5meodmt.org/index.php?topic=50446.msg54245#msg54245

Great to have you here.

Hi ForeverChanging,

When I first procured the n-n molecule, I did much research on set and setting and I found this article served me very well in making sure it was a safe and rewarding experience; http://psychedelicfrontier.com/how-prepare-spiritual-dmt-ceremony/
