DMT — or N, N-dimethyltryptamine – is a hallucinogenic compound that occurs naturally in many plants and animals. DMT has been used for thousands of years, particularly in South America for religious ceremonies and spiritual healing. Also known as the Spirit Molecule or a Businessman’s Trip, DMT produces psychoactive effects similar to LSD or Magic Mushrooms; a brief but intense visual and auditory hallucinogenic experience. Some people have described a trip on DMT as having an ‘out-of-body’ experience and feeling as if they are traveling at warp speed through a tunnel of bright lights and shapes. Others have reported visiting another world and communicating with spiritual or elf-like beings; a profound and transformative life-changing experience.

- Enhancement of satisfaction with life
