What a DMT trip actually feels like

New study offers a detailed glimpse into the otherworldly encounters produced by the psychedelic drug DMT

Researchers interviewed 36 people immediately after a DMT trip. Here’s what they discovered:

  • All 36 people reported “entering other worlds”
  • 94% encountered some sort of otherworldly being or entity 
  • Entity encounters were overwhelmingly positive and often provided personal and cosmic insights (like self love or the game-like nature of reality)
  • 81% described the trip as “hyperreal” 

DMT increases theta brain waves, which are associated with dreaming, but it’s unclear why people have such similar “dreams” 🤔
