Ask a question


Dimethyltryptamine (or DMT) is a psychotrope that has hallucinogenic effects. Numerous countries class dimethyltryptamine as a narcotic, though it is also found in a natural state within the organism (in very weak quantities). Its recreational use is fairly widespread, due to its side effects (visual and tactile hallucinations). However, the consumption of dimethyltryptamine leads to cardiac troubles (hypertension, palpitations, tachycardia) as well as a sensation of imminent death, an effect which is regularly reported.
