Many DMT vape pen partakers believe vaping DMT is a fabulous improvement on smoking DMT in bowls. This new development in experiencing the psychedelic and sometimes out-of-body effects of DMT is not only leaps and bounds more convenient, but it also preserves the DMT, only burning the exact amount you are choosing to inhale.
Because of the convenience factor of the DMT vape pens, some might argue it has almost made the use of DMT all too casual. For those who have found great enjoyment and positive experiences from DMT, the evolution of vaping is nothing but positive.
TRICKS OF THE TRADE
Vaping DMT is a simple enough process, but there are a few tricks to making the most of the experience, especially for those who have not dived deeply into the fractal-driven world of smoking DMT.
If your cartridge doesn’t come with a battery, it is important to have a battery that burns on a high charge. The DMT needs to burn hot to vape properly. A rule of thumb when looking for a hotter burning battery is the bulk factor. The super slim, lightweight batteries aren’t your best option.
Shake it Up
Many users have reported that shaking the pen prior to vaping the DMT helps significantly. Vape cartridges are popping up all over the world but from widely sourced anecdotal evidence, DMT seems to slightly separate in the cartridge from the mixing agent that is used. Vigorously shaking the cartridge for about 30 seconds has proven time and again to be incredibly effective.
Upon interviewing users, we heard a firsthand account further supporting this theory. One user recounted a story where he used the first cartridge he purchased without first substantially shaking it. For the first three-quarters of the cartridge, the vape experience was hit-or-miss. However, once the cartridge was down to the last of the DMT, the vape experiences became almost too strong. In fact, the DMT was so strong the user passed out. He then chose to try it again, only to have the same blackout experience. The user came to the conclusion that this experience is possibly the result of vaping the concentrated product that was left at the bottom of the unshaken cartridge. This supports the assumption that the beginning hits had smaller amounts of actual DMT, due to the DMT and mixing agent being separated.
Set and Setting
The experience above is one example of why set and setting are important. Check out our guide to Harm Reduction for more information on how to navigate a psychedelic DMT experience safely.
DMT should only be inhaled in a comfortable, safe environment. Many prefer no background noise, no talking, just stillness and silence. Others enjoy listening to music. DMT ceremonies have grown in popularity as well. These ceremonies are reportedly beneficial for growth in one’s personal life, including relationships. DMT ceremonies are organized underground and can be found through word of mouth.
Because DMT vape cartridges are so easily accessible, the birth of this new device has taken DMT to a more casual level of use, creating some controversy in the partaking community. There are strong beliefs that DMT should not be used recreationally, and instead reserved only for spiritual and emotional healing.
“Safety first” is the rule when it comes to psychedelics. DMT vape pens are powerful, and should be handled with extreme care. This is especially important when considering how easily one could be mistaken for cannabis or tobacco, if in the wrong hands. Always keep your DMT cartridge in a place where no one can access it without knowing exactly what they are getting themselves into. Keep your DMT cartridge separate from your cannabis and tobacco cartridges.
It is advised that you vape sitting down, with the option to lie down if necessary. DMT has overwhelming effects. Prepare yourself properly, in order to avoid falling or hitting your head.
