'For science!' I told everyone. I had the opportunity to provide useful information to the scientific community by ingesting such an absurd dose of an exotic substance with little literature to be found; especially for sub-ingual route of administration. Naturally, I was a little apprehensive to try such a high dose when a) this would be my first experience and b) there is a wild inconsistency of dose/trip correlation.

Nevertheless, I was excited; fearful, but a kind-of good scared -- similar to the feeling you get when you're next in line for a huge roller coaster that you have never been on before. I split up the powder into three doses of approximately 55mg (+/- 3mg) for the three people (including myself) who are participating. We had two sitters (although one was drunk) in case anything went south. Our intoxicated friend naturally kept everyone in high spirits and had a positive vibe.

Note that this is 5-Meo-DMT HCl, which is not in its freebase form, but rather a salt. I considered converting it to freebase, but I figured it would be more of a hassle. Without further ado, I put the salt under my tongue. It tasted awful, and had an ever-intensifying sting.
I put the salt under my tongue. It tasted awful, and had an ever-intensifying sting.
The pain was not by any means unbearable, but it began to numb my mouth and kick my salivary glands into overdrive. From now on, I'll provide timestamps with explanations.

I decide that fifteen minutes is long enough, and spit everything out of my mouth, which before now, has just sat in there. I haven't had any first alerts as of yet, nor have any of my other friends. Thoughts are racing through my head at this point, second-guessing whether this was a good idea. After all, this is unprecedented, or at least there were no records that I could find of subjects (or psychonauts) who ingested this much. A few minutes later, I was reassured that everything would be fine, and we pressed onward.

Effects are coming up slowly but surely. I have a strange body feeling -- not quite a 'body load', rather it was the same feeling I get after hitting a bowl of some high-grade cannabis once or twice. There's also a warm feeling in my head and face, comparable to that of opiates, but much weaker. I decided to go outside and lay on a blanket since the weather was spectacular that night.

T+ 0:35
After laying down for a few minutes, I start to feel the trip start intensifying. I feel my mind emptying, just listening to the nature around me. It all seemed louder than normal, but perhaps it was only because I was paying attention to it. My body is still tingling very slightly, but the sensation gradually intensifies.

The effects seemed to level off, almost as if I had plateaued. Surely that wasn't it, right? I took such an absurd dose of the most powerful psychedelic on Earth, and all I felt may very well have been placebo. Hmm...

T+ 0:50
After getting impatient, I decided that we should smoke some cannabis that we originally had saved for after the trip. After taking my first hit, it immediately hit me. I stared into the distance, as the trip began to intensify at an alarming rate. I decided to walk back to the blanket that I laid out earlier and enjoy whatever comes my way. I could feel that I was on the edge of something spectacular; the excitement and intensity builds as every moment passes.

T+ 0:55
I was entranced by the visuals as I looked up at the sky. The gaps in the treetops looked like beautiful white flowers while the leaves started tying together in some kind of gigantic web. We had all grown quiet at this point, just observing the hyper-realistic reality that our minds had projected around us. This was completely different than what I was anticipating before the trip.

T+ 1:10
After basking in the sheer beauty of this “wonderland” for a while, I noticed that the trip intensity started to decline rather rapidly, although it was a smooth transition; not just an abrupt “end”. I was left with a feeling of euphoria and satisfaction. I am still dumbfounded how that dose didn’t send anybody over the edge, but I am glad that things turned out the way that they did. Perhaps in the future, I will try free-basing 5-MeO-DMT and smoke it, or try a higher sublingual dose.

The trip was a smooth, strong psychedelic trip, but with vivid mental clarity. I can’t say that I had any profound, life-changing revelations, but it was definitely an experience that I will remember and cherish for many years. I’m also happy that I can provide reference material for others who are doing their research.
