To support clinical use, a multigram-scale process has been developed to provide 5-MeO-DMT, a psychedelic natural product found in the parotid gland secretions of the toad, Incilius alvarius. Several synthetic routes were initially explored, and the selected process featured an optimized Fischer indole reaction to 5-MeO-DMT freebase in high-yield, from which the 1:1 succinate salt was produced to provide 136 g of crystalline active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) with 99.86% peak area by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and a net yield of 49%.

The report provides in-process monitoring, validated analytical methods, impurity formation and removal, and solid-state characterization of the API essential for subsequent clinical development.

5-MeO-DMT is a research chemical psychedelic of the tryptamine class, four to six times more powerful than its better-known cousin, DMT (N,N-dimethyltryptamine). It can be found in a wide variety of trees and shrubs, often alongside DMT and bufotenine (5-HO-DMT), as well as one species of toad. 5-MeO-DMT can also be synthetically produced. 

In Central and South America, 5-MeO-DMT is most often sourced from Anadenanthera peregrina (yopo or cohoba) and Virola theiodora—both of which are traditionally harvested to make psychoactive snuff.

It’s also found in the milky white venom of the Sonoran Desert Toad (Bufo alvarius/Incilius alvarius; aka the Colorado River Toad ), which is native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. Venom harvesting has put pressure on the population of this ecologically sensitive species. It’s currently listed as imperiled or locally instinct in several states in the US. Seeking out alternatives sources of 5-MeO DMT, such as synthetic or plant-derived versions, is strongly recommended.

In keeping with its ceremonial use among indigenous Amazonians, 5-MeO-DMT shows great promise in the treatment of certain medical conditions. In fact, a single inhalation of the substance has been shown to greatly improve general well-being and mindfulness as well as reduce the symptoms of psychological disorders.

While research into 5-MeO-DMT is limited, a few studies have supported the anecdotal evidence. In a recent preliminary study, 42 participants who took 5-MeO-DMT reported high levels of life satisfaction and mindfulness as well as lower levels of depression and anxiety. The effects persisted for four weeks, when a follow-up assessment was completed.

These results support the findings of a survey of 362 people who had taken 5-MeO-DMT. After using the psychedelic, 80% of respondents reported improvements in anxiety and depression.

5-MeO-DMT has seen a meteoric rise in popularity over the past few years as anecdotal reports of its potential as a healing agent have come to light. This has incentivized some bad practices among guides and other practictioners, including everything from overharvesting and the ecological strain on Sonoran Desert toad mentioned above, as well as sexual abuse and even unintended deaths in several documented cases.

EXPERIENCE

02

5-MeO-DMT is one of the most potent psychedelics you can consume, and the experience can be intense and powerful—in both positive and negative ways. Though everyone will undergo a unique and individual experience, there are some general things you can expect. 

What to Expect

Vaporizing or smoking 5-MeO-DMT powder is the most common route of administration. The effects are usually felt within the first 30 seconds after consumption, peaking from 1-15 minutes and lasting for up to half an hour. When taking synthetic 5-MeO-DMT, a threshold dose is around 1-2 mg, while a standard full dose is 8-12 mg. When naturally derived, the threshold dose is 5-10 mg and a standard full dose is 30-60 mg.

When swallowed, doses are generally higher, but also show generally unreliable results.[1] Other less common routes of administration include sublingual (under the tongue) and injection.[2]

The effects of 5-MeO-DMT come on strong, often with a loss of physical coordination and control. Users experience bright colors, moving environments, or recursive patterns, and perhaps even “environmental orbism” at higher doses. However, visual effects are limited. Unlike DMT, 5-MeO-DMT isn’t known for its visionary properties. The experience is more often described as a “perspective shift” characterized by physical, emotional, and conceptual effects.

One of the most common features of the 5-MeO-DMT experience is the enhancement of tactile awareness, which can reach the point of sensory overload. The body may also feel heavier. Intense emotions are typical, ranging from extreme fear to euphoria. During the onset, anxiety or excitement is often felt. It’s also common to experience an overwhelming sense of oneness with the universe, or a sense of being outside of time and space while simultaneously experiencing the totality of both. Ego death is also typical of the 5-MeO-DMT experience. Other effects include auditory hallucinations, time distortion, nausea, and memory loss.

Pharmacology

Like the other tryptamines, 5-MeO-DMT has the same basic structure as DMT, but has a methoxy group in the R5 position. It works primarily as a serotonin (5-HT) receptor agonist, with a particular binding affinity to the 5-HT1A receptor subtype. It also binds to 5-HT2A and trace amine receptors, possibly mediating hallucinogenic effects via the latter. Reuptake inhibition of neurotransmitters such as noradrenaline and dopamine are also thought to be involved in 5-MeO-DMT’s function.

Toxicity

There is some evidence that indolealkylamines, including 5-MeO-DMT, cause serotonin syndrome when overdosed or combined. Of particular concern are possible interactions with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) such as harmaline or harmine. These are sometimes combined with the drug to enhance its effect, but can dangerously increase exposure to both 5-MeO-DMT and its active metabolite bufotenine.

Some other safety concerns have been flagged by animal studies. In rats, 5-MeO-DMT was found to induce hypothermia at low doses (0.5-1 mg/kg) and hyperthermia at high doses (3-10 mg/kg). In sheep, grazing on the 5-MeO-DMT-containing Phalaris tuberose/aquatica (or bulbous canary-grass) caused fatal tachycardia and respiratory failure. Although more likely due to other toxins in the plant[13], this severe reaction underscores the need for caution when approaching 5-MeO-DMT’s many and varied natural sources.

Dosing

5-MeO-DMT doses are different depending on whether the substance is synthetic and naturally derived.

Synthetic

Small: 3-6 mg
Medium: 6-10 mg
Large: 11-15+ mg

Toad

Small: 10-20 mg
Medium: 20-40 mg
Large: 40-60+ mg

BENEFITS & RISK

Potential Benefits

5-MeO-DMT has been used as a healing agent by South American shamans for thousands of years, partially due to its ability to occasion mystical-type experiences. While research into the drug is still limited, recent studies are backing up these ancient claims.

In a survey of 362 adults, 80% of respondents reported improvements in anxiety and depression after using 5-MeO-DMT, as well as an increase in well-being and life satisfaction. More than that, improvements were directly related to the intensity of the mystical effects felt during the experience. Respondents that had intense mystical experiences also reported higher rates of the experience’s personal meaning and spiritual significance.

The benefits of 5-MeO-DMT have also proven to be enduring—in a recent preliminary study, 42 participants who took 5-MeO-DMT reported an increase in levels of life satisfaction and mindfulness as well as lower levels of depression and anxiety. The effects persisted for four weeks after the initial experience when a follow-up assessment was completed.

One of the unique aspects of 5-MeO-DMT is the short duration of the experience compared to more common psychedelics, such as LSD and psilocybin. While research has shown that psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy can help people with a variety of psychological disorders, these sessions often require a 7 to 8-hour session. Because 5-MeO-DMT is short-acting and lasts just 30-90 minutes, it shows promise as an accompaniment to therapy sessions, which are typically 60 to 90 minutes.

Introduction


Recently, interest has increased in understanding the clinical applications of psychedelic, entactogenic, and dissociative psychoactive drugs, such as psilocybin (1), DMT (2), LSD (3), MDMA (4), or ketamine (5) in combination with psychotherapeutic support to promote improved mental health conditions (Figure 1). (1,2) Research has particularly indicated favorable results in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, end-of-life conditions, and anxiety-related disorders.
This research shows that while the therapeutic mechanisms are not fully understood, some factors have been correlated with improvement in mental health. These factors include the intensity of the mystical experience occasioned by the psychedelic, the context in which the session was conducted (known as set and setting), the dose at which the drug is administered, psychological flexibility, connectedness, emotional breakthrough, and increased neural entropy.
5-MeO-DMT (6) is a tryptamine natural product most commonly identified as the primary psychoactive component of the parotid gland secretions of Incilius alvarius, the Sonoran Desert toad (Figure 2). (11) The alkaloid is also known to be present in low concentrations in a variety of plants, shrubs, and seeds. Human consumption of this material for its psychoactive properties has been reported in the scientific literature for at least 100 years. (12−15) Although it has been historically suggested that 5-MeO-DMT may have been used by indigenous cultures, (11) there is no known documentation to support this assertion.
Due to the recent discovery of high concentrations of 5-MeO-DMT in I. alvarius secretions, there has been a reported increase in its recreational and spiritual use. (11,16,17) Recent evidence has indicated the presence of 5-MeO-DMT existing in concentrations between 20 and 30% of total dry weight or approximately 200–300 mg of 5-MeO-DMT per dried gram of toad secretion, (17) concentrations much higher when compared to plant-derived sources of 5-MeO-DMT.
