DMT, short for dimethyltryptamine, is considered by many to be among the most powerful psychedelics that we can experience. People who have used DMT report mystical visions that are often far stronger than with other psychedelics. They feel that they had been taken to alternate realities, interacted with sentient interdimensional beings, and had their worldview changed by visceral experiences that seemed realer than their daily life. Although the duration of DMT’s effects is short — 10-20 minutes — users claim it feels like days, weeks, and even years of experience unfold within that span. But the most compelling fact about this highly psychoactive substance is that it stands alone among other entheogens as the only one that is naturally found and produced in the human body, a fact that has great implications for its use in the treatment of substance abuse, addiction, and other psychological maladies.
