The Super Secret Hidden DMT Extraction Guide

Disclaimer: I am not promoting illegal drug use. I do not condone the use of this guide where DMT extraction is illegal. I do not condone the use of DMT outside of a legal or traditional context. This guide is for harm reduction purposes.

DMT is known as ‘The Spirit Molecule’ – and for good reason. DMT is one of the most powerful psychedelics on the planet, naturally occurring in many species of plants, and is thought to be released in tiny amounts in mammal brains. Although the issue is controversial, it’s also possible that the release of natural DMT is a factor in out-of-body experiences or spiritual states.

DMT is a molecule that mimics the neurotransmitter serotonin, much like the other classic psychedelics LSD and psilocybin. DMT’s psychological effects are mostly due to its binding to the 5-HT2A receptor, which is found mostly in areas of the brain associated with high-level cognition: self-awareness, emotions and introspection.

When smoked or injected intravenously, DMT causes a very rapid, very intense psychedelic experience which lasts a few minutes. Users report the feeling of being ripped from their bodies, and thrown through space at incredible speeds. DMT produces intense visual and auditory hallucinations of otherworldly landscapes, hidden dimensions and god-like beings. It often produces deep introspection in its users, allowing the revisitation of past memories and providing a fresh perspective on life.

DMT can also be ingested in the form of the ancient psychedelic brew ayahuasca, which is drunk in traditional healing ceremonies throughout South America. This experience is significantly different from that of smoked or injected DMT, lasting several hours rather than several minutes, and often causing vomiting and diarrhea. Despite the relatively unpleasant sounding experience, ayahuasca has been associated with a variety of therapeutic benefits, including the treatment of depression.

Here, I want to provide you with a detailed guide on how to procure DMT-containing plants, and how to extract this powerful psychedelic compound for personal use.

Where to get DMT-containing plants

DMT is illegal worldwide, but the legality of DMT-containing plants varies. In many places, it’s possible to order DMT-containing plants online.

This guide for DMT extraction is specific for the bark of the Mimosa hostilis root, as this is the most commonly purchased DMT-containing plant. However, the extraction should work with any DMT-containing organic material – you just need to make sure you adjust the quantity of starting material depending on how much DMT is present in the species of plant you’re using.

Mimosa hostilis root bark can be bought online from various vendors, but may not be able to be shipped to your country if there are restrictions on DMT-containing plants. This site ships M. hostilis to the US and Canada as well as Europe.

The Psychotria viridis plant contains DMT and is used in traditional ayahuasca brews. It is also known as Chacruna to indigenous peoples. P. viridis can be purchased here for both European and North American residents.

If you are patient, you can grow your own DMT-containing plants from seeds, which are often not regulated to the same extent as plants. An example is Reed Canary Grass seeds, which can be purchased online in some countries.

The DMT-containing plant market is always changing, so keep an eye out for new appearances. Here is a list of dozens of plants that contain DMT, many of which could be available through online vendors to your country.

The chemistry of DMT extraction (simplified)

This is a simplified explanation of what’s happening during the chemistry of DMT extraction. Skip ahead for the step-by-step instructions!

The most common technique is called an ‘acid/base extraction’, but it’s pretty complicated. We’ve decided to talk you through the ‘straight to base’ extraction technique, which is a little easier. Here’s the outline of the chemistry:

Your DMT containing plant is ground into a powder and mixed with a base, most commonly sodium hydroxide (NaOH). This dissolves the plant matter, leaving you with DMT molecules floating around in a base solution.

The next step is to get the DMT out of this base solution. Luckily there’s an easy way of doing this; the base solution is charged (polar), but the DMT molecules aren’t (non-polar). This means that adding a non-polar solvent will attract the DMT molecules out of the polar base solution. This non-polar solvent (now containing the DMT) forms a separate layer from the base solution, and can be siphoned off from the rest of the solution.

The final step involves getting the DMT molecules out of the non-polar solvent, which can be done by evaporation or freezing.

Please read the guide thoroughly and make sure you understand the process before attempting it.


  • DMT-containing plant such as Mimosa hostilis root bark (Can be purchased here.)
  • Water
  • Lye (granulated sodium hydroxide)
  • Vinegar
  • Naptha VM&P (if unavailable, 40-60 Petroleum Ether can be used)


  • Personal safety: fume mask, safety goggles and rubber gloves
  • Grinder or blender that is capable of crushing ice
  • Glass mixing jar – with a wide mouth and tight fitting lid
  • Collection jars with lids x4 (glass jelly/jam jars will do)
  • Coffee filters
  • Rubber spatula
  • Freezer
  • Pipette
  • Eyedropper


  • Cut and blend your plant material until it’s as fine as you can get it – wear a mask to avoid breathing in the powder.
  • Slowly add your lye to your water a tablespoon at a time, mixing until dissolved, in your mixing jar. For 50g Mimosa hostilis bark, use 750ml water and 50g of lye. NOTE: lye can cause chemical burns and should be treated with care. Neutralise any spills with vinegar. Wear gloves and safety glasses.
  • Add your powdered plant to the jar, tightly close the lid, shake thoroughly and then leave for about an hour.



  • Add your naptha to the mixing jar: for 50g Mimosa hostilis bark, use 50ml naptha.
  • Put the lid back on your mixing jar and gently mix it for about a minute, turning it upside down a few times. Don’t shake it, as this will make it hard to separate out the two layers later.
  • Set down your mixing jar and allow the two layers to separate.
  • Repeat this gentle agitation a few more times.
  • Once the layers have separated after your final agitation, use your pipette to move the top (clear) layer into one of your collection jars. This contains your DMT. Try to avoid taking any of the darker, bottom layer, as this contains nasty stuff you don’t want carried over.
  • Add more naptha to the mixing jar and repeat the above steps three more times to get every last remaining bit of DMT out of the base solution.
  • Optional – leave the last batch of naptha in the mixing jar for a couple of days to get the maximum amount of DMT from the base solution.
  • Put all four of your collection jars (containing DMT in a naptha solution) in the freezer and leave overnight.



  • The freezer should have made your DMT crystallise in your collection jars. Pour the solutions through a coffee filter to collect the DMT. The naptha can be saved and reused in future extractions.
  • Use your rubber spatula to get every last bit of naptha solution out of the collection jars.
  • Carefully lay out your coffee filters to dry. When dried, this DMT powder is ready to smoke, but can be refined further in the optional step below.
  • Many people find that their DMT remains stuck to the side of the jars – if there’s nothing on your coffee filters, check the insides of the jars for crystals.



  • Put your DMT powder in a small glass container.
  • Put your solvent (either naptha or heptane) in another, separate glass container. You will need about 25ml of solvent for every gram of DMT powder.
  • Carefully place both glass containers into a pan of hot water, so their contents start to heat up. NOTE: your solvent will give off flammable fumes, so DO NOT use a gas stove or have open flames around.
  • Use an eyedropper to add tiny bits of your hot solvent to the DMT powder. Swirl the glass container around and keep adding solvent until all the DMT is dissolved. Try to use as little solvent as you can get away with.
  • Take the pan of water off the heat, and leave it to cool down to room temperature.
  • Take the glass container with your dissolved DMT powder, now at room temperature, and put it in the fridge.
  • When it has cooled down, move the container into the freezer and leave for a few hours.
  • You can now filter out your refined DMT crystal using a coffee filter. This process can be repeated for even greater purity.


The Quick Version

Adapted from Lazyman’s tek on the DMT-nexus

For those of you that don’t like the look of all those steps, and just want to get your DMT out of your plant as quickly as possible (without worrying about purity or yield), here’s a simpler protocol:


  • DMT-containing plant such as Mimosa hostilis root bark
  • Water
  • Lye (granulated sodium hydroxide)
  • Vinegar
  • Naptha VM&P (if unavailable, 40-60 Petroleum Ether can be used)


  • Personal safety: safety goggles and rubber gloves
  • Large ceramic mixing bowl (5L)
  • Potato masher
  • Large measuring jug (2L)
  • Large glass baking dish
  • Fan


  • Break up 400-500g of Mimosa hostilis root bark and put it in a mixing bowl. Make sure the bark only fills half the bowl.
  • Slowly add 200g of lye to 2-3L of water. NOTE: lye can cause chemical burns and should be treated with care. Neutralise any spills with vinegar. Wear gloves and safety glasses.
  • Add your lye solution into the mixing bowl with the root bark. Wait an hour.
  • Use your potato masher to stir and mash up your root bark for 20-30 minutes.
  • Pour 250ml of naptha into the bowl and mix for another 20-30 minutes.
  • Let the solvent separate out to the top of the mixture for a few minutes.
  • Pour the top, clear solvent layer off into your glass baking dish. Avoid getting any of the lower, dark layer in the dish.
  • Evaporate the solvent by blowing air from your fan across the baking dish.
  • The remaining powder is your smokeable DMT.

How do I know the purity of my extracted DMT?

All you have to worry about when you make your own DMT is how efficient you’ve been in following the instructions. If you’ve used poor quality ingredients, or done a messy job (i.e. carried over some of the base solution by accident), you may end up with more impurities in your DMT powder. This can be unpleasant to smoke.

There’s a myth that the colour of DMT powder tells you its purity – this isn’t true, as there are a number of factors that contribute to the colour of DMT powder. Generally, if your powder is white, yellow, red or brown, it is safe to smoke. If it is green or blue, something has gone wrong in your extraction and you should try again.

Alternative extraction guides

As mentioned earlier, many extraction protocols use an acid/base extraction method, which we haven’t covered here as the straight-to-base method is a lot simpler. However, if you are interested in being extremely thorough and want to try an acid/base extraction, there is a large selection of guides here on the DMT-nexus.

Safety information

DMT is illegal in most places. I don’t condone breaking the law or using DMT outside a legal and traditional context. If you do decide to take DMT, make sure you research its effects and risks.

DMT is a very powerful psychedelic and should be treated with respect. You should understand how best to prepare for a psychedelic experience, and integrate it afterwards.

Be aware of your dosage! A recommended first-time dose of smoked DMT powder is 15mg.

When following these extraction guides, make sure to understand the process before you start. If you are using a DMT-containing plant other than Mimosa hostilis, make sure you are aware of the differences and adjust your procedure accordingly. Always wear rubber gloves and safety goggles, and a dust mask if you are grinding up plant matter.

If using lye (sodium hydroxide), avoid getting it on your skin, and always wear safety goggles. If you get it on your skin, wash it off with copious amounts of water (and ideally use vinegar too, if it’s within reach, to neutralise the lye). If you get it in your eye, run your eye under tap water for at least 20 minutes and see a doctor. If you spill a large amount, neutralise it with vinegar before cleaning it up. When adding lye to water, add it slowly and mix well.

  1. I used 200g of Mimosa hostilis inner root bark. Adjusted the ratios accordingly, followed the directions to a tee and ended up with absolutely nothing at all in the coffee filter. I spent so much time and effort on this and can’t remember the last time I was so let down. Does this mean that it is likely I was sold bogus mimosa? Is there any other way to end up with nothing at all?


    • I had nothing in the coffee filter either. The product was all stuck to the glass after l took it out of the freezer. After l poured the naptha out through the filters l scraped it all out of the jar onto a piece of flat glass and let it dry.
      Oh yeah, after l poured the naptha off l set the jar upside down on a paper towel to let all the naptha drain out. Then l scraped out the jar.
      I got a couple of grams. I put 75 mg. in the pipe and took three hits. I was already hallucinating after the first hit. After the third hit l barely got the pipe and torch lighter set down in time. I had a bowl on each side of me. One for the pipe and one for the lighter.
      The shit was definitely real.


      • The filter ONLY collects the floaties which is a minuscule amount and most likely not even one dose. The real yield is in the dish. After you put the solvent through the filter you want to lay out a couple paper towels, Place your dish upside down elevated on one end for airflow and ti dry out. Let it sit for some hours and once its dry and you dont smell the solvent anymore.. use a blade to scrape it off. I suggest you scrape it onto parchment paper..easier yo collect.

        Safe travels!


    • I had the same issue. Leave it in the freezer for 48hrs. When you pull it out of the freezer let your container turn clear..(let the frost melt on its own) then strain through your filter. I just adjusted the times and it worked wonderfully.


      • I got a question, seems how this is a salt basically, does or has anyone tried 3 staging it and try to gas it back as you can with other types of salt based extractions. 3 stages being the water , plant matter, lye push into naptha or what ever carrier your using. Pour off solvent, and use the gas created by muriatic acid and aluminum foil to get the dmt out. Or do some salts work differently then others.


    • Unfortunately there are quite a few scammers out there. Also if you dont use naptha it can cause a lack of separation. My best advice is to check the Tek forums for places to buy it.


    • You get about 0.7g of dmt from 100g of mhrb which must be powdered and all processed correctly to get that much.
      Don’t let it sit to long once separated as the DMT be will sink to to where the layer meets.
      Finally, make sure your freezer is cold enough


    • I have mimosa trees all over my property is there some kind of special process to get the bark off the root or is it just as simple as it sounds? Or should I just pay for it and buy it online I think it would be more of a spiritual experience may be to use the tree that’s growing on my family land what do you think

    • Ur not supposed to have your return in a coffee filter for the most part …the dmt sticks to the bottom and sides of jar from freezer u should see the product all over the rim of the jar ..then u filter the naphtha through a coffee filter!!! The only reason you filter the naphtha out with filter to keep the naphtha cleaner longer so it can be used again …..any return done right looked like little white tiny snow specks stuck all around the inside of jar… so this is long I know but I’ve done this many times and I know how it’s done and done right ..


  2. Hi, I have a question. I would love to try and make this but I wanted to know if at any time during the process does it give off any strong smells? I have very nosy and irritating neighbors…


    • for a cheap, easy non-polar alkane solvent buy cheap charcoal lighter fluid. To be cautious, first “wash” the fluid with a few volumes of water and separate with a capped, inverted 2 liter soda bottle. open the cap and squeeze to displace water. After a few tries this is a fine excuse for a sep funnell. You can make it anhydrous with a few passes through baked Sodium Carbonate, Washing Soda, Arm & Hammer, with the soap powders. “Pet ether” is an archaic term for low boiling saturated hydrocarbons, say less than 6 carbons. Any number of OTC solvents will serve, and since my Acct with Aldrich lapsed, lighter fluid has served me well. This is the answer to a LOT of benchtop shortages. David Anshus


  3. Super dumb question here. The naptha doesn’t seem to mix at all with the plant base. I get it, that is what it is supposed to not do. However, if one isn’t agitating it when it is added (like shaking the heck out of it), it never really seems to mesh with the plant base (stays a separate layer for the most part during mild rotations of container). So how is it that it is going to absorb the DMT? Does the naptha really “pull” the molecules from the entire solution? Seems like it wouldn’t.


  4. I currently have my 2nd extract in the freezer in 2 days. The extract I did yesterday I see nothing in the jars yet. I saw one persons comment that it takes 72 hours in the freezer. hoping to see some results tomorrow.

    Put the lid back on your mixing jar and gently mix it for about a minute, turning it upside down a few times. Don’t shake it, as this will make it hard to separate out the two layers later.
    Set down your mixing jar and allow the two layers to separate.
    Repeat this gentle agitation a few more times.

    How long should this entire process take?

    I shook gently for 1 minute but the naptha is already separated from the second I put i in to the jar until after 1 minute of gently shaking it. Am I being too gentle?

    Also by add more naptha others have also asked do you had 50ml of naptha each time? That is what I did.

  5. Put the lid back on your mixing jar and gently mix it for about a minute, turning it upside down a few times. Don’t shake it, as this will make it hard to separate out the two layers later.
    Set down your mixing jar and allow the two layers to separate.
    Repeat this gentle agitation a few more times.
    Once the layers have separated after your final agitation, use your pipette to move the top (clear) layer into one of your collection jars. This contains your DMT. Try to avoid taking any of the darker, bottom layer, as this contains nasty stuff you don’t want carried over.

    How long should this process take?


  6. My jars have been in the freezer for 24 hours and no crystals would it be okay to pour them in to a bigger glass container so the naptha can spread out?


  7. Thus technique worked extremely well for me and I used 2 jars both containing only 25g of the bark. I yielded a couple grams and some. Shit was fail proof and the method was insanely easy. Thank you so much


  8. I’m very sad for my first experience. I was so excited about the process until I weighed my extraction (28 mg) 😦 😦 😦 So maybe I’ve done something wrong, but I found this guide really hard to understand in some points; it seems easy but unfortunately, it leaves some important questions open for me.
    At least I still have the remaining mix (with naphta) in the jar (optional step) and I’ll try to repeat the process tomorrow.
    1) It’s not clear why the mixing jar needs to have a wide opening, I used a “frigoverre” kind, almost 1 foot large, but with a rubber lid, so I had trouble turning it upside down, because if I wasn’t careful enough it would have gone out. I would have preferred to use another kind of jar, with around 3 inches wide opening (smaller) but an airtight lid. I wasn’t able to find a glass jar wide enough to have also an airtight lid (and I mean a lid that has a metal system to guarantee the closure). So maybe this was a problem. What are some of the possible kinds of jars you can buy? Brands? Products?
    2) I was afraid to shake the content in the first step because I could clearly feel a burning chemical reaction from the inside. I was afraid it would have broken the rubber lid. So I just moved the jar in a circle way, while leaning it against the table. Not enough shaking? Are there any risks the chemical reaction increase so much to destroy the mixing jar?
    3) I’ve noticed that in the mixing jar, after putting some naphtha in it and turning it upside down for a minute (x3) the layers were basically three, in this order, from the bottom to the top: the dark, useless layer; a thin layer made of small white particles, not uniformly arranged; a final transparent layer. I’ve got two questions about these: 1) are the small particles useless? I’ve managed to take them out but it was hard to leave out the dark part; 2) wouldn’t it be easier to get the clear layer with a taller but a less large mixing jar?
    4) “Add more naphtha to the mixing jar and repeat the above steps three more times to get every last remaining bit of DMT out of the base solution.”
    How much more naphtha? What’s the total quantity required for 50g M.H.? I would say 50*4= 200ml But I want to make sure I’m right. How do I understand I’ve got all the last remaining bit of DMT?
    5) Why 4 jam jars? Why not just one? Do you need to put each extraction in a jar and then put it it the feeder as fast as you can? Or why can’t you put each extraction in the same jar?
    6) How to get rid of the mix when everything’s done? Toilet flush is OK?
    7) I used Petroleum Ether 40-60


    • 1) The wide mouth of the jar means that the naptha will separate more evenly and you’ll be able to take more of it out without risking as much contamination.
      2) You should shake the jar in the first step, when you’re mixing the NaOH with the plant material. This reaction will dissolve the plant matter but shouldn’t create any dangerous gasses – so you should be fine to keep the lid on.
      3) Since you’re using petroleum ether, this extra layer could be due to the properties of your solvent. This guide is intended for naptha so I’m not sure how to advise you on this. Try search on the DMT Nexus for answers.
      4) Repeat with the same quantity of naptha each time. Yes, 50g MH would be 50×4=200ml naptha in total. You won’t know for sure when you’ve got all of the DMT, but this is why you do it several times.
      5) You use four jars because this makes the freezing precipitation faster. You can use one jar but it would take much longer to freeze.
      6) Yes, you can flush the remaining plant debris down the toilet.


      • Thank you. After two days I had 122 mg more. Plus, I’ve noticed how to ‘suck’ the clear without any single drop of the dark, just leave the pipette vertical, and because the dark will stay down you can squeeze the pipette just a little to get rid of it. If I had read the answer before I would have let it in in the freezer for more. I thought ‘over night’ meant about 12-24h. Now after, again, two days more I’ve come up with not even a 100 mg more. So total marks 200 mg… It’s a shame because it should have been 5 times the same, but I’m happy with this since it’s the first time. It’s not even a pure extract, so I’m wondering what happens if some brown-yellowish parts come into… do I really need to purify it?


    • I’m not saying this to be mean….

      The process is straight- forward.

      Try reading it and writing out an outline that hits the main points….
      You’re overanalyzing and getting hung up. Focus!

      The recrystalization step is NOT optional…. in my opinion.


  9. I am really curious what the vinager is for? Is it to neutralize the sodium hydroxide incase you accidentally spill some on your skin? And has anyone ever tried extracting from Illinois bundleflower? I have some 3 year old bundleflowers I am going to harvest here as soon as they sprouts.


  10. So when I go to the site to order MHRB, it’s not allowing me to do anything! I continually get a legal notice that wants to know if I’m over 18 and when I select that I am over 18, it goes away for a split second and then returns. WHHYYYY? Someone please tell me what to do about this!


  11. Hey! I usually extract stuff from a variety of plants like coffee using a soxhlet. Would drying and macerating the roots/leaves would improve the isolation? If you were to use a Soxhlet would you skip the NaOH step and instead just go to the apolar solvent? Thanks


  12. For those who lack a freezer that can really freeze ice cream HARD, a Styrofoam cooler and dry ice sure ought to freeze out the DMT in the naptha, smaller crystals will result but that shouldn’t be a reason not suggest it, but it will do so faster than any freezer could or should, at least that’s my thinking. Wrap the jar up in a wash cloth but don’t let the vinegar/water mix freeze prior to separation, or perhaps that will produce a better separation, tilt the jar to one side in the cooler as well to draw up the naptha, and use at least 2 to 3 pounds of the dry ice, I’m just guessing how long it might last in the cooler, keep the lid in it, use a small cooler size too. It’s only a suggestion.


  13. I don’t see how there are so many mishaps in the comments! Before this tek, I had never attempted to do my own extraction. Heck I didn’t even look into till a few hours before finding this. I did hours and hours and made a pretty good understanding of this whole process and other methods, just combining ideas. Needless to say my first extraction attempt, I followed these guidelines to a T and had great success. I was getting well over 1% yields! I had almost a whole gram from my first time using two 25g solutions (cut this tek in half due to not having big enough jars). Now I’m on my third time using this tek with a few tiny tweaks just from notes I’d taken from some reddit forums. Still pretty much this exact tek though and my results truly are amazing everytime. And I know for a fact that after atleast 12 hours crystals already form in all my pulls. Obviously I leave them in there for atleast 24 hours to be sure but the longer the better! And I’m using a regular old refrigerator freezer that’s filled with food and what not. A good note to take is using a glass baking dish to put your naphtha fulls in as having more surface area is def a big help. And it makes it easier to just use a razor blade to scrape out of the shallow baking dish as most the crystals stick, so in the jars you’ll more than likely have all your fine crystals stuck to the bottom and the shape of the jar makes it very difficult to easily and efficiently remove the crystals. Something else I’ve just started doing is as soon as I take my fresh dish with fresh crystals out of the freezer, I quickly will scrape the crystals while still in the frigid naphtha solution so they’ll begin to float and you can then easily dump the naptha through a coffee filter on top of a jar (to catch and reuse the naphtha) and catch all the crystals you knocked lose instead of scraping them around the dish trying to scoop them out after you’ve already dumped out the solvent. Sorry for the long post but this tek deserved the props and any future home chemist deserve the tips!


    • Hours and hours of research oh gosh I just now decided to read over my lengthy post and notice my mistakes sorry for I am rolling hard.


  14. This tek is awesome it’s so simple and I get an amazing yield everytime. I’ve made a few very slight adjustments (nothing new introduced besides different glass equipment) and from most of what I read on active forums involving a/b teks and just all variety’s, I seem to be in the top class when it comes to others yields. I notice crystals within just 12 hours of being in my average freezer. So easy and have found a new hobby.


  15. Also the website you recommended is freaking awesome! So many other great products they have. I’ve ordered salvia extract and spores c:


  16. Everyone needs to be careful of taking the advice off this site in using reed grasses to extract from, yes they contain alkaloids like DMT and 5-MeO-DMT, great.
    But these grasses also contain gramine, a very toxic alkaloid that does some real damage to the brain and certain organs.

    Be carful everyone, don’t take everything said by some nice fancy looking site to be safe and the truth, question everything, do you research, stay safe, stay tripping.

    Peace, love and positivity


  17. would it matter if, say, you were using a syringe to remove the top layer of naphtha and sucked up some bits of the mimosa/caustic soda mixture too? so that the top layer you removed contained some of the caustic soda/mimosa mix? thanks


  18. Hi guys, I would like to know if the final extract of DMT with the “straight to base” method is ideal for obtaining injectable DMT powder or if it needs to be purified with other processes. I would like to follow Richard strasser’s method which involves the intramuscular injection of DMT …


      • Don’t you know a method to extract DMT in purity and make it injectable? Maybe starting from the DMT extracted with the “straight to base” method…


      • Reading on the internet I understood that the crystals obtained with the guide you posted cannot be injected because they are not dissolving in water and it would be harmful to our body. To dissolve them you need another substance. After doing this, the extract can be injected. However, it must be as pure as possible to avoid allergies to plant residues


  19. Make sure you have your freezer on the coldest setting. I believe that is key.
    I followed instructions like everyone else. With freezer at max cold. I saw crystalization within in 2 hours. I left it in the freezer for 24 hours anyway.


  20. Thank you.
    I just did my first extraction and have two jars with what looks to be half a gram + of beautiful white crystals.

    It was a great instructional, very very easy to understand.

    Thank you,


  21. Currently in mid process and wanted to ask a quick question? When it says 50ml of naphtha per 50g Mimosa then add to mixing jar. Do I add the whole 50ml of naphtha at once or do spread it evenly amongst the 4 times required to do so. So should I be using 50 ml of naphtha or 200ml through the whole process?


      • Hey so I’m sorta freaking out rn. I followed everything perfectly and when I pulled the first pull out the freezer and scraped everything out onto a coffee filter it melted and left like a yellow stain. I left the naptha in the solution for 24 hours and just put it in the freezer to see what happens.


      • Try leaving it for another 48 hours in the freezer – and if you don’t get an immediate solid in the coffee filters make sure to leave them to dry thoroughly to see if any crystals have been caught.


  22. Hola, I am inMexico in a small town. Can you extract the DMT using 199 proof cane alcohol? It works amazingly for creating potent pot oils. No access to much else here.


  23. What exactly is LYE is that like coocking salt or what, i realy dont know? And would it be better to put the jars upside down in the freezer so the DMT would gather on the lid?


  24. When I search for lye in the stores, it gives me options for drain cleaners. I realize that lye is a powerful base and cleans drains but wouldn’t it have other stuff in it that would interfere with the process or add toxicity to the process? I’m not sure where to get the right lye.


    • Just check the ingredients – as long as it’s pure NaOH it is what you need. It is a strong alkali (so can burn you if you get it on your skin) but it is required for the process and will not impart any toxicity into the DMT as long as you follow the instructions.


    • Burn hardwood, oak would be the best, collect the ashes & boil ashes for exactly 30 minutes in soft water. This means your timer does not start until you have rolling boil in the water. Vapor distilled water works best. After the 30 minutes remove from the stove or hotplate & allow the ashes to settle to the bottom. Skim the lye off the top & place the lye into borosilicate glass if at all possible. If you use any other type glass ensure it is bpa free so other toxins do not enter your finished product. Do not use metals or plastic as that will leach into your solvent. Please also note that there is no such thing as pure or 100% in chemistry.


  25. this has worked great for me. thanks to all for additional input. i feel like i’m leaving/wasting crystals in the coffee filter. any alternatives or different ways of filtering?


  26. I have a magnetic stirrer with a heating mantle large enough to fit my 2000ml flask.

    Will using the magnetic stirrer cause too much volatility disturbing separation even on slower speeds? I’ll also be using a separatory funnel to separate layers if that matters.

    Anywhere else in this process where it would be advantageous to employ the magnetic stirrer and/or heating mantel?

    Using lye, naphtha, then planning on cleaning the results up by using ACS grade heptane. …… Correct?
    (Gotta luv the easy lab supply availability ebay facilitates!)

    Many thanks for enabling information!


  27. How long should it take to dry after straining the pull? Lots of small crystals in small baking dish but finding it very difficult to get to loosen from glass, even with razor. Seemed dry after a day or two and minimal naptha smell, and the larger crystals easy to collect, but seems like a lot wasted.


  28. I followed the directions but I never got a clear layer that separated, just one that does not contain the particulates. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to add more Naptha?
