  1. 1. DMT
  2. 2. Definition ▪ Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a powerful psychedelic drug. ▪ It is a type of tryptamine alkaloid. ▪ It is a naturally occurring substance, found in various plants and animals, and in small quantities in the human brain, where its function is unknown.
  3. 3. Chemical structure of DMT
  4. 4. • DMT exists in a number of different forms. It is usually smoked, but can also be injected or ingested. • DMT is considered to be a powerful hallucinogen, producing a much more intense effect than other popular hallucinogens.
  5. 5. DMT Release  DMT is released during psychedelic states: ▪ Near death experiences ▪ Death ▪ Childbirth ▪ Dreaming
  6. 6.  DMT negative effect : The thick smoke of DMT results in the majority of the adversities. - Some of the most common effects include: o Increased heart rate. o Respiratory irritation. o Upset stomach/vomiting. o Increased body temperature. o Intense visuals/altered perception. o Panic attacks/hysteria. o Loss of consciousness.
  7. 7. WHAT makes DMT so special?  most potent psychedelic known to man, we are born with it in our system.  Produced from pineal gland during near death experiences(NDEs), during birth and when you dream.  Structurally, It resembles neurotransmitter “Serotonin” which responsible for most of our thoughts, feelings and reactions.  Brain forms impenetrable shield, “Blood-Brain barrier” to prevent crossing of toxins to brain tissue but allow DMT to cross it, according to Japanese scientist.
  8. 8. ayahuasca DMT is also the primary active ingredient of ayahuasca, a tea that Amazonian tribes brew from two plants and drink as a sacred medicine.  Ayahuasca has been known to treat today’s most wide- spread diseases, such as depression, addiction, cancer and list goes on.  Could DMT be what helps to heal our physiological and psychological wounds?
  9. 9. CASE After hearing about ayahuasca from the legendary Harvard botanist Richard Shultes, the writer William Burroughs traveled to South America and swilled the stuff in 1953.  In a letter to the poet Allen Ginsberg, Burroughs said that during his first ayahuasca trip he thought he had been poisoned, and he felt himself turning into half-man-half-woman. Burroughs nonetheless drank the tea again and praised its ability to facilitate “space time travel.”
  10. 10. DMT study that changed every thing!  In 1990, Rick Strassman, a psychiatrist at the University of New Mexico, conduct an DMT study.  About half of all participant reported making contact with strange entities or beings.  They described them as “Aliens”, “helpers” or “guides”.
  11. 11. Could we really be dealing with another dimension of existence? ▪ Explanations: 1- DMT allow awareness at cellular level even atomic levels, tapping into the neuro-pathway of the brain or even commuication between molecules. 2- processing old data of Brain with a new factor in the base algorithm (disruption/excitement at the Brain receptor). 3-The sensation of seeing aliens, elves, or being in the presence of God(s) is not unique to DMT users. recent research has shown that by stimulating parts of the temporal lobe you can reliably reproduce the feeling of being in the presence of God
  12. 12. History
  13. 13.  In 1931, the first time synthesized DMT by Canadian chemist: Richard Manske.  In 1946, the discovery of DMT as natural product by the Brazillian chemist: Oswaido de lima.  Starting 1955, DMT has been found in 50 different species of plants and 4 different animals.  In 1957, DR: Stephan Sezaro, discovered the effect of DMT by injecting him self in the laboratory.  In 1965 ,two German researcher, F. Franzen and H. Gross, published a paper in the flagship British science journal Nature announcing that they had isolated DMT from human blood.  In 1972 , Nobel-prize winning scientist Julius Axelrod of the U.S. National Institutes of Health reported finding it in human brain tissue.
  14. 14.  In 2012, Egyptian auther, Ahmed Mourd, wrote a novel about the effect of DMT on young people ,‫االزرق‬ ‫الفيل‬  In 2014, Egyptian team work created a dramatically film called"The blue elephant", referes to the novel to be easily known for public.

  23. 23. Group opinion ▪ All the group members disagree with DMT Drug , because DMT is illegal and forbidden. ▪ DMT is classified as a Schedule I drug under the UN 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances, meaning that use of DMT is supposed to be restricted to scientific research and medical use and international trade in DMT is supposed to be closely monitored
  24. 24. Conclusion ▪ Dimethyltryptamine (or DMT) is a psychedelic drug that can induce out of body or near death experiences. ▪ Dimethyltryptamine is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter similar in structure to serotonin. ▪ DMT is found naturally in the mammalian brain and is theorized to play an important role in thought processing, dreaming and near-death experiences, as well as meditation and out-of-body experiences such as astral-projection.
  25. 25. Dimethyltryptamine can be made both synthetically and extracted from various natural plant sources.  He theorizes that it is created in trace amounts by the pineal gland during normal metabolism, and may be released in massive amounts during birth, death, hallucinations and dreams. It is also used in certain religious practices, presumably for its ability to induce divine insights, visions and feelings of euphoria. The effects of Dimethyltryptamine include physically, slightly elevated blood pressure, heart rate, pupil diameter, and rectal temperature.
  26. 26. Advantage ▪ DMT itself I forgot most of the trip, but I remember it felt like the most "right" psychedelic, like it was what psychedelic faculties were meant for. It seemed a step above anything else. ▪ LSD- telepathy and great light filled visions, love of good and knowledge of psychic energy manipulation. ▪ Diphenhydramine: much telepathy, knowledge of what it would be like to be in a dementia world with no life and how to survive.The telepathy was unreal...but not worth the extremely negative effects it had on the brain. ▪ various RCs on blotter- maxed-out electric feeling, lots of good times, helped a guy I know get off blow. ▪ DOx- brief holotropic work, saw into darker side.
  27. 27. Disadvantage ▪ These are the dangers common to all psychedelic drugs: Accidental injury: When on a psychedelic drug, it is easier to accidentally injure yourself. Bad trips: A bad trip is a negative psychedelic experience. It can range from a mildly negative feeling of anxiety/discomfort, to full- blown psychosis. Permanent psychosis: Psychedelics are believed by researchers not to cause permanent psychosis, however they could trigger a latent mental illness in someone who was already predisposed to it, or make existing mental illnesses worse.
