DMT was first synthesized in 1931, and demonstrated to be hallucinogenic in 1956. It has been shown to be present in many plant genera Acacia, Anadenanthera, Mimosa, Piptadenia, Virola and is a major component of several hallucinogenic snuffs cohoba, parica, yopo. It is also present in the intoxicating beverage ayahuasca made from Banisteriopsis caapi, and it may have oral effectiveness due to the presence of several naturally occurring inhibitors of catabolic deamination.
