Chemistry

5-MeO-DMT was first synthesized in 1936, and in 1959 it was isolated as one of the psychoactive ingredients of Anadenanthera peregrina seeds used in cohoba snuff.

History

Traditionally 5-MeO-DMT was used as a psychedelic snuff or as a constituent of preparations of Ayahuasca. It is also the major ingredient of the venom of Colorado River toad (Bufo alvarius), although there is no direct evidence this was used as an entheogen until recent times.

Use

When used as a drug in its purified form, 5-MeO-DMT is smoked, snorted, or injected and is active at a dose of as little as 2mg. The onset of effects occurs in seconds after smoking/injecting, or minutes after insufflating, and the experience is often described as similar to a Near Death Experience. It can also become orally active with the use of an monoamine oxidase inhibitor to inhibit its quick metabolism.

5-MeO-DMT can also be obtained from psychoactive toads like the Colorado River toad.
