How To Make DMT
How To make DMT you need to get DMT containing plants. So where do you get DMT containing plants?
Though DMT is illegal in most parts of the world, it is possible to order its plants online and even on our website. Especially, Mimosa hostilis root bark, Psychotria viridis and other DMT-containing plants that can be bought online from various vendors, but may not be able to be shipped to your country if there are restrictions on such plants. This site ships M. hostilis, Psychotria viridis and other DMT-containing plants to the US and Canada as well as Europe.
This guide for DMT extraction is specific for the bark of the Mimosa hostilis root, as this is the most commonly purchased DMT-containing plant. However, the extraction should work with any DMT-containing organic material – you just need to make sure you adjust the quantity of starting material depending on how much DMT is present in the species of plant you’re using.
The Psychotria viridis plant contains DMT and is used in traditional ayahuasca brews. It is also known as Chacruna to indigenous peoples and can be gotten from this site.
If you are patient, you can grow your own DMT-containing plants from seeds, which are often not regulated to the same extent as plants. An example is Reed Canary Grass seeds, which can be purchased online in some countries.
How to get or extract DMT
First of all, you need some certain elements and equipment necessary for thee production or extraction of DMT.
Elements for production:
• DMT-containing plant such as Mimosa hostilis root bark (Can be purchased here.)
• Lye (granulated sodium hydroxide)
• Naphtha VM&P (if unavailable, 40-60 Petroleum Ether can be used)
And the equipment to use include:
Personal safety: fume mask, safety goggles and rubber gloves
• Grinder or blender that is capable of crushing ice
• Glass mixing jar – with a wide mouth and tight fitting lid
Collection jars with lids x4 (glass jelly/jam jars will do)
• Coffee filters
Now with all these elements and equipment at your disposal, you proceed to the process of extracting the DMT from plants.
How to extract DMT
The most common technique is call an ‘acid/base extraction’, but it’s pretty complicate. We’ve decided to talk you through the ‘straight to base’ extraction technique, which is a little easier. Here’s the outline of the chemistry:
Your DMT containing plant is ground into a powder and mixed with a base, most commonly sodium hydroxide (NaOH). This dissolves the plant matter, leaving you with its molecules floating around in a base solution.
The next step is to get the product out of this base solution. Luckily there’s an easy way of doing this; the base solution is charge(polar), but the DMT molecules aren’t (non-polar). This means that adding a non-polar solvent will attract the its molecules out of the polar base solution. This non-polar solvent (now containing the DMT) forms a separate layer from the base solution, and can be siphoned off from the rest of the solution.
The final step involves getting the DMT molecules out of the non-polar solvent, which can be done by evaporation or freezing.
Put in simple words or a more simplified break down of the process:
• Break up 400-500g of Mimosa hostilis root bark and put it in a mixing bowl. Make sure the bark only fills half the bowl.
• Slowly add 200g of lye to 2-3L of water.
NOTE: lye can cause chemical burns and should be treated with care. Neutralize any spills with vinegar. Wear gloves and safety glasses.
• Add your lye solution into the mixing bowl with the root bark. Wait an hour.
• Use your potato masher to stir and mash up your root bark for 20-30 minutes
• Let the solvent separate out to the top of the mixture for a few
Pour the top, clear solvent layer off into your glass baking dish. Avoid getting any of the lower, dark layer in the dish.
Evaporate the solvent by blowing air from your fan across the baking dish.
• The remaining powder is your smokeable
• Stir 250ml of naphtha into the bowl and mix for another 20-30 minutes
How to determine the purity of the extracted DMT
All you have to worry about when you make your own DMT is how efficient you’ve been in following the instructions. If you’ve used poor quality ingredients, or done a messy job (i.e. carried over some of the base solution by accident), you may end up with more in your DMT powder. This can be unpleasant to smoke.
There’s a myth that the colour of DMT powder tells you its purity – this isn’t true, as there are a number of factors that contribute to the colour of powder. Generally, if your powder is white, yellow, red or brown, it is safe to smoke. If it is green or blue, something has gone wrong in your extraction and you should try again.
Take care when working with any psychedelics. Not only can the creation process be extremely dangerous, requiring protective eye-wear, ventilation and danger of explosion, but the first-time ingestion can cause your body to experience things you may have never experienced before.
It is a good idea to experiment with these substances in safe and controlled environments and with that you trust that is experienced with the substance.
