- DMT can be combined with a mixing agent to produce DMT E-liquid for vaping
- Vape pens allow users more consistent control over dosage
- There is no data regarding the safety of DMT vape pens
Despite popular belief, drinking ayahuasca or smoking powder from a glass pipe isn’t the only way to experience DMT. It can also be mixed into E-liquid, casually referred to as “vape juice”, and inhaled using common vaporizers or E-cigarettes. These vapes don’t require any modifications to be used with DMT, and pre-loaded DMT vape pens can also be found online for a few hundred dollars or less.
Given vaporizers connection to a number of health conditions, is vaping safer when it comes to DMT? Are DMT vape pens any better than other vape pens?
What Are DMT Vape Pens and How Do They Work?
A vape pen is a vaporizing device designed to vaporize distillates and oils. They are mostly used to vaporize nicotine and cannabis, and are called pens because their compact design resembles that of a traditional ballpoint pen and consists of two pieces: a battery and a cartridge. The vaping substance, commonly known as E-liquid, is often flavoured, and comes in prefilled or refillable cartridges. A DMT vape pen is simply a vape pen, or E-cigarette, that uses an E-liquid cartridge containing DMT. As with cannabis, DMT vape pens have the benefits of ease of use, convenience, and control over dosage. The psychoactive effects of vaping DMT are mostly identical to those experienced when smoking it.
Buying DMT E-liquid isn’t always an easy task. Some distributors make their own DMT vape juice and sell it only to a clientele that they know and trust. DMT is a controlled substance and remains illegal in many places. However, it is possible to find cartridges online, especially if one ventures into the dark web, or even social media. Once the cartridge is in hand, vaping DMT is much like vaping any other substance, but with a few simple differences to distinguish the experience.
For example, many users have reported that shaking the pen prior to vaping DMT helps enhance the effects. This is because DMT seems to separate from the mixing agent used to create the E-liquid, and shaking it helps recombine the two. It is also necessary to have a battery that burns on a high charge, as DMT needs to be very hot to vapourize properly. The most important thing to have in mind before vaping DMT — or consuming any psychedelic substance, for that matter — is that set and setting are key. Vaping DMT should be done, if at all, in a comfortable and safe environment, ideally with a trip-sitter present.
Why Do People Choose to Vape DMT?
The main reasons why people choose to vape DMT are the convenience and the fact that a DMT vape pen can be very discreet. The preferred method of smoking DMT powder is generally a glass pipe.
DMT Vape Pens are appealing to some users because they allow them to control how fast and how deep they want to go with each puff. Finally, some drug users with serious dependencies are turning to vaping as a form of harm reduction. While vaping a substance does not equate with sobriety or abstinence by any means, being able to control the dosage and the effects does help heavy drug users better regulate their habits.
Is Vaping DMT Safe?
There is no currently research concerning the safety of DMT vape pens specifically. However, there is enough data on vaping to know that vaping regularly can have the same health consequences that smoking cigarettes/cannabis does. Another aspect to keep in mind is the fact that there is zero regulation around DMT E-liquid, so determining whether you’re buying a pure substance or something that is laced with harsh chemicals is nearly impossible unless you produce the liquid yourself.
Finally, please remember that DMT is still prohibited and very illegal in most countries. Having a DMT pen can get you into a lot of trouble. Stay safe.
