So I just signed up for DTube and decided to share a video I recently did for my small YouTube channel. This is, by far, the video of mine that I've done the most research for, so hope you like it!
In this video, I'm giving a general overview of a very interesting substance - DMT (or dimethyltryptamine).
In no way do I promote its use. What I want is to raise awareness of and provide information on the current state of research of this compound and some facts you should probably know about it.
That said, please keep in mind that I'm not a real scientist and do not claim to be an expert on the matter at hand. This video is just a result of my personal desire to understand DMT more. I very well could have made some mistakes and/or misinterpreted the data available, so please let me know should you notice such an occurrence. Below, you can find links to the articles I've referenced and sources I've used.
Also, there are other videos about DMT to be found - either on YouTube or DTube - so be sure to check them out for different perspectives on the situation. This is a big subject and it's very important to do as much research as possible.

In part 2, I will discuss the more subjective side of the DMT experience, having to do with philosophical implications and spirituality. Will see you in part 2 or any other video I may uplaod before that!
