What is DMT? DMT is short for Dimethyltryptamine- a hallucinogenic tryptamine that is found naturally occurring in many plants, animals and is also thought to be the substance the pineal gland produces in the dream state.
DMT as a stand alone substance is usually smoked (in its many forms) to feel its effects and lasts from 4-20 minutes, however there is also the South American-brew which is drunk called Ayahuasca which uses chacruna (a leaf which contains DMT) as part of its recipe.
Due to acids in the stomach chacruna cannot usually be digested while maintaining the psychedelic effects of DMT, however the ayahuasca vine (called Banisteriopsis caapi) contains a monoamine oxidase inhibitor which allows the full effects to be felt over a period of time usually ranging from 4-8 hours.
Russell Brand is quite open about the fact that he is a recovering drug addict and not quite sure if the idea of taking the psychoactive substance known as DMT is a good idea for him specifically, however, in this video he openly discusses its use, with the help of notorious psychedelic explorer Terence McKenna.
