If we compare 5-MeO-DMT vs. DMT, what do we find? 

Join us to explore the nuanced world of N-DMT and 5-MeO-DMT with psychedelic neuroscientist Dr Christopher Timmermann

In the rapidly evolving field of psychedelic research, two compounds have emerged as subjects of particular interest DMT and 5-MeO-DMT. Each of these substances holds tremendous untapped potential for scientists and patients due to the effects of these compounds on consciousness and mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.

DMT and 5-MeO-DMT are similar molecules but lead to radically different experiences. 

While DMT – a key component in Amazonian brew ayahuasca - induces forms of communication with entities and feelings of entering alternate dimensions, 5-MeO-DMT  - sourced from the Bufo Alvarius toad – facilitates an absolute feeling of ego-dissolution, offering transformative experiences beyond the boundaries of self. 

The differences between their subjective effects can’t be overstated, so it’s important to understand what each one offers.

We will explore the unique characteristics N-DMT vs. 5-MEO-DMT, their origins, their and safety profiles. We will look into subjective reports and examine the latest findings from modern brain imaging, providing a scientific perspective on the neural mechanisms underlying these extraordinary experiences.

We will delve into science, spirituality, and the exploration of human consciousness and discuss the therapeutic applications of these substances and their impact on our comprehension of reality and personal well-being.

Get ready to join the conversation!  We will leave plenty of room for a Q&A session. Engage directly and explore more about N-DMT and 5-MeO-DMT.

The event will be recorded and shared with registered participants.
