5-MeO-DMT is a short acting tryptamine very similar in nature to DMT. It is generally found as very small white crystals (like salt) and is generally smoked. Be careful with dosages...people react very differently to different doses. Some individuals have world-shattering effects with less than 5 mg. Descriptions of its effects range from "bliss" to "chemical terror".
