DMT Vapes, How to use them

What is DMT?

DMT stands for dimethyltryptamine — it’s a powerful hallucinogenic compound found in a variety of plants and animals. Our own brains even make DMT — albeit in very small concentrations. It’s thought that DMT contributes to our ability to dream and may be involved with other aspects of conscious and unconscious thought.

This compound is aggressively psychedelic — capable of injecting you into what feels like another dimension entirely. Some people even report meeting entities (AKA machine elves) with breakthrough DMT experiences.

Users often temporarily lose their sense of self — a phenomenon referred to as “ego-death.”

For the most part, this experience is filled with nonsensical visions — that is, an experience that’s so complex, confusing, and bizarre, you won’t even be able to describe it when the trip is over — let alone make sense of it.

With that said, sprinkled in with the nonsensical geometric shapes and patterns are some deep personal insights. DMT is one of the most reliable methods of occasioning a mystical experience. This describes experiences that align with spiritual connection, profound self-actualization, or meaningful and life-changing insights.

There are two different types of DMT available in vape pen form:

  1. N,N,DMT — this is the type of DMT most commonly found in plants. It’s the active ingredient in the traditional Shamanic brew known as ayahuasca.
  2. 5-MeO-DMT — this is the form of DMT found in the venom of the Bufo alvarius toad, as well as a few species of plants and fungi.

Other forms of DMT share the same name but are considered to be distinct in terms of the effects they produce.

A good example of this is 4-AcO-DMT — similar to psilocybin and psilocin produced in magic mushrooms. The experience this compound produces is much mellower. It’s unlikely this compound will inject you into the types of interdimensional experiences produced by N,N,DMT or 5-MeO-DMT. It also lasts substantially longer (8 hours rather than 30 minutes).

There’s also 2-α-DMT, 4-MeO-DMT, 5-Bromo-DMT, α,N-DMT, and others.

What is a DMT Vape Pen?

A DMT vape pen combines either N,N,DMT or 5-MeO-DMT with an e-liquid base. It’s then added to a standard vaporizer, just like the type you’ll find from cannabis manufacturers.

In fact, you can even use DMT vape cartridges with any standard cartridge-style vape pens. These pens are often sold with CBD, THC, or nicotine cartridges. When the tank is empty, it’s removed, and a fresh new tank is screwed into its place.

Vape pens are designed to heat the contents without burning them. The DMT and its base agent (usually e-liquid) are heated just enough to convert into a vapor which can then enter the lungs for absorption. Vape pens typically heat the active ingredients to around 400ºF (204ºC).

DMT can also be smoked, but the high heat (over 1500ºF or 900ºC) destroys a lot of the viable DMT and produces potentially harmful byproducts.

Vaping is considered safer, less harsh on the throat and lungs, and more efficient than smoking.

Pros & Cons of DMT Vape Pens

The flood of DMT vape pens on the market is inevitable, and while a lot of psychedelic experts bring up some very serious cautions regarding their use among the general public — they’re here to stay.

Rather than fighting the inevitable, we believe it’s more important to educate users to reduce the potential for harm.

Treating these pens with respect and moderation is critical to avoiding potentially life-altering consequences. DMT is a powerful psychedelic substance with a wide capacity for healing and harm.

The vape pen version of DMT makes it much easier to use and allows users to “dial-in” the intensity of effects by regulating how many hits they take. Many modern psychedelic facilitators that work with DMT use vape pens for this reason.

While DMT isn’t inherently addictive, providing it as a vape makes it much easier to abuse the substance. Vapes are already widely available for other substances. It’s common for people to use vape pens compulsively rather than for any potential medicinal or therapeutic benefits.

There are accounts of people on Reddit who claim to be using DMT vape pens every day, sometimes a few times per day. This is not a safe way to use this substance and the long-term physical and mental side effects of this is still unknown.

What Are the Benefits of DMT Vape Pens?

  • Simple to use — Breakthrough experiences are available to virtually everybody. When used responsibly, this may offer a substantial capacity for healing.
  • Ability to control the dose — By regulating how many hits you take and the amount of time you hold the vapor in your lungs, you can control the intensity of effects with a reasonable degree of accuracy.
  • Less harsh on your throat and lungs than smoking — Let’s be clear, vaping DMT is going to be harsh, but it’s far less harsh than smoking DMT.

What Are the Negatives of DMT Vape Pens?

  • Potential for abuse — vape pens are very easy to use too often and can become habit-forming.
  • Expensive — DMT is expensive, so whether you’re using a vape or smoking it, the price will be fairly high.
  • Potential health risks — DMT requires high heat to vaporize and can be harsh on the throat and lungs.
  • Highly illegal — DMT is a controlled substance in the United States and many other countries worldwide.

What Types of DMT Vape Pens Are There?

DMT vape pens can be broken down according to two categories:

  • The type of vaporizer products (cartridges, disposable vape pens, refillable DMT e-liquid)
  • The type of DMT used as the active ingredient (N,N,DMT or 5-MeO-DMT)

A) Types of DMT Vaporizers

Vape pens are well-established at this point. You can find companies in many different markets selling vape pens of all different styles. The main industry for this is cannabis, but you can also find vapes for nicotine, caffeine, melatonin, and other substances.

DMT vapes come in all the same formats as these other vapes.

In general, the most accessible form of DMT vapes to use is DMT vape carts.

The trick is to order a nice vape pen battery that allows you to recharge it and control the battery’s voltage output. If you find the hits are a little too harsh, you can turn down the voltage to vape at a lower temperature.

Cheap vape batteries won’t offer this functionality.

1. DMT Vape Cartridges

  • Convenient to use
  • Cost efficient
  • Easy to swap out for other types of carts
  • Rechargeable

The most common form is replaceable vape cartridges. These devices use the standard 510 threading found on most vape batteries on the market. They allow you to use an existing vape battery.

You’ll need a couple of hits to “breakthrough,” but this is more of a positive than a negative. It’s much more controllable than mesh pens or smoking DMT in a dab rig or pipe.

2. Disposable DMT Vape Pens

  • Works right out of the box
  • Low barrier to entry
  • Wasteful

DMT vapor also comes in the form of non-refillable vape pens. These standalone devices come with a battery and internal tank that holds the DMT and e-liquid base. Once the tank is empty or the battery runs out, you simply throw away the device.

The downside of these devices is that they’re wasteful and usually use cheap materials. Cheap heating elements may off-gas heavy metals like lead.

3. Refillable DMT Vape E-Liquid Pens

  • Designed to vape E-liquid
  • Convenient & easy to use
  • Customizable settings

You can also find refillable E-liquid vapes that can be filled with a DMT-infused E-liquid. You can buy these E-liquids or make it yourself by combining DMT freebase with any e-liquid.

4. Mesh Pens or Mod Pens

  • Can vape powder, resin, or e-liquid
  • Customizable
  • Requires some effort to get it to work properly

Mod vape pens are designed to be customized. You need three main components — the battery, the coil, and a stainless steel mesh. This method requires a bit of tinkering to get it to work, but once it’s going, it’s the only method aside from smoking that’s going to deliver breakthrough experiences with just one or two hits of DMT.

These vapes also offer the most accurate dose because you know exactly how much DMT you’re getting based on the amount of powder you’re using.

B) Types of DMT Commonly Found in Vapes

The two main forms of DMT found in vaporizer format are N,N,DMT and 5-MeO-DMT.

While both are forms of DMT, the experiences they produce differ quite a bit. In general, 5-MeO-DMT is more “spiritual” in that it tends to make users feel connected with the universe. Users often experience out-of-body experiences.

N,N,DMT is similar, but has a stronger visual component with sharp fractals and constantly changing geometric patterns. N,N,DMT is also strongly spiritual, but not as likely to result in a “god encounter” type experience as 5-MeO-DMT.

There’s a lot of debate about what type of DMT is “better,” but the truth is that neither one is better than the other — both are profound and formidable psychedelics that demand respect. Both substances have a similar potential for healing, as well as harm (when used irresponsibly).

1. N,N,DMT Vape Pens

These pens are the most common form of DMT vape pen. This is the same active ingredient that’s found in ayahuasca, changa, and yopo.

This form of DMT is associated with profound psychedelic and mystical experiences, introspection, and deep realizations about the self and consciousness.

Many experts consider this type of DMT to be a little bit better for self-realization and introspection. From a spiritual sense, this molecule tends to correlate more with a “feminine” embodiment. It’s more nurturing and guiding than 5-MeO-DMT.

2. 5-MeO-DMT Vape Pens

This compound is virtually identical to N,N,DMT — with just a few extra atoms attached. This is the same active ingredient that’s found in the secretions of the Bufo toad. Traditionally, the venom from this toad is collected and either eaten or smoked. Today, it’s more common to see shamans administering 5-MeO-DMT in the form of a vape pen instead. The experience is virtually indistinguishable between the toad venom and synthetic DMT from a vape.

From a spiritual perspective, 5-MeO-DMT has more of a “masculine” embodiment and tends to be a little bit “rougher” on the participant. It’s less nourishing and introspective than N,N,DMT — but offers stronger visuals in exchange.

How Much Do DMT Vape Pens Cost?

First of all, DMT vape pens are illegal — you’re not going to find these devices from legit, registered companies in the United States.

In Canada, where psychedelics are more accepted, shops are selling them online for around $150 to $250 bucks (CAD) — which works out to around $120 to $200.

In the US, where these pens are highly illegal, the cost is usually much higher — closer to $400 per pen.

A single pen usually contains about 0.5 mL of liquid. Typically, this yields about 150 puffs before the pen is empty.

Let’s do some math.

The concentration of DMT is usually around 400 mg per 0.5 mL of volume, so the average puff would deliver about 2.7 mg of DMT. The standard psychoactive dose of 5-MeO-DMT is roughly 40 mg (inhalation), so you’d need to take about 10–15 puffs for a full dose.

Based on the prices above, we can work out the cost per trip below.

Your mileage may vary.

Cost Breakdown of DMT Vape Pens

Cost (USD) Per Pen Cost per Puff Cost per Trip
$200 Vape Pen $1.33 $19.95
$250 Vape Pen $1.67 $25.05
$300 Vape Pen $2.00 $30.00
$350 Vape Pen $2.33 $34.95
$400 Vape Pen $2.67 $40.05
$450 Vape Pen $3.00 $45.00

* Estimates are based on a 400 mg/0.5 mL pen, and a dose of 40 mg DMT (15 puffs)

How to Use a DMT Vape Pen

The whole point of a DMT vape is that it’s simple to use. Nevertheless, there are a few steps to follow to get the most efficient hit from your vape.

Step 1: Shake the Pen

Always give the pen a good shake before you use it. The DMT will tend to separate from the e-liquid base, so if you skip this step, you will either get a hit of pure DMT or pure e-liquid.

Step 2: Take one Long Inhale, and Exhale Completely

This does two things; it calms you down before the hit, which is going to help reduce the chances of having a challenging or anxious experience. Secondly, it prepares you to take a longer, deeper breath during the next step, ultimately making the DMT more efficient.

Step 3: Take a Deep Inhale

Don’t rush it — inhale the vapor from the device slowly. It’s going to be pretty harsh, so taking longer, slower breaths will cut back on some of this harshness. Once you’ve taken a full inhale, release the pen and take one more inhale to bring all the vapor into the lungs.

Step 4: Hold Your Breath for a Few Seconds Before Exhaling

The DMT will immediately start absorbing through your lungs. Keeping the vapor in the lungs for a few seconds before exhaling allows you to get more efficiency from the DMT you’re using. The longer you hold your breath, the stronger the hit will be.

Step 5: Repeat as Necessary

Depending on the potency of your pen, the amount of vapor you inhaled, and the time you held the vapor in your lungs, you may need to take a few hits to reach breakthrough levels.

For a standard 400 mg, 0.5 mL vape cartridge, you may need between 5 and 15 hits to reach this effect level.

If using a mesh pen or stronger vape cartridge, you may only need 1–3 hits to reach breakthrough levels, so don’t rush it.

How Strong Are DMT Vape Pens?

Few psychedelics compete in terms of the depth of psychedelic experience than a DMT vape pen. They’re comparable in strength to ayahuasca but have substantially higher celerity.

Celerity is a term that describes the speed at which the psychedelic state of consciousness appears and disappears again.

Think “acceleration.” The faster a psychedelic accelerates, the sooner the race is over.

DMT vape pens are like a drag car — capable of reaching top speed almost instantly. But this comes at a cost — drag cars burn through their fuel quickly.

Substances with low celerity, like ayahuasca, take longer to get up to speed (reach peak effects) but also last much longer (6–10 hours). Ayahuasca is like a rally car — it’s much slower off the line but has the efficiency and fuel capacity to run for several hours.

A single hit of a vape pen can inject the user into deep psychedelic states in a matter of just a few seconds. The effects usually reach peak experience by the 10-minute mark and quickly fade out from there.

Just as fast as the experience begins, it goes away again. The total experience from a DMT vape pen rarely lasts longer than 30 minutes in total.

Is DMT The Strongest Psychedelic?

Some might argue that DMT (especially 5-MeO-DMT) is the strongest psychedelic based on the depth it brings the psychedelic explorer. The states of consciousness this compound can bring you to are hard to get to with any other psychedelic compound.

While this may be true, technically speaking, DMT isn’t the most potent psychedelic. This title goes to LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and LSD derivatives. The standard dose of 5-MeO-DMT (inhaled) is about 40 or 50 mg. The standard psychoactive dose for LSD, AL-LADPRO-LADETH-LAD 1P-LSD, or related LSD-derivatives is only about a tenth of a milligram (100 mcg).

This makes LSD roughly 500 times stronger than DMT.

But it isn’t quite that simple. The top-level of the experience is higher with DMT — meaning that even high doses of LSD won’t provide an experience as strong as the standard psychoactive dose of DMT, even if both substances were used at the same dose (something that is definitely not recommended).
