What is the DMT content of Mimosa hostilis rootbark?
Q: Once again your vast knowledge is needed to put a question to rest in my mind; There have been many posts on the web concerning the percent of DMT in mimosa hostilis root bark (from .57% to one 1%). And as for any other alkaloids present in the root bark, I haven't any information on them. To your knowledge what %DMT is in the rootbark of mimosa hostilis and what other alkaloids may also be present with them?

A: As with the alkaloid content of any plant, the percentages are going to vary greatly from one plant to another. Our resources cite numbers ranging from .31% - .57%. There is one reference to 1% DMT content in Trout's Notes which simply states that there is a persistent counter-culture rumor that 1% DMT can be found from some sources, but no reference or verification has been found for the rumor.

Hope this helps
