(New!) Interview with Leading DMT Researcher Dr. Jimo Borjigin

 (New!) Interview with Leading DMT Researcher Dr. Jimo Borjigin

“I recently had a chance to have a conversation with a woman who is leading the scientific pathway to researching the mysterious compound DMT… Dr. Jimo Borjigin from the University of Michigan. Dr. Borjigin received her PhD from John’s Hopkins University and has published ground-breaking research regarding increased brain oscillatory speeds & coherence following cardiac arrest, the neurochemical fluctuations following asphyxia-based cardiac arrest, the discovery of DMT production in the pineal gland of live rats, and now the most recent study that has observed comparable levels of DMT to common neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine) in the brain…”

DMT Research To Ask If Spirit Molecule Can Extend Life Beyond Clinical Death

“DMT is being closely examined by researchers in many fields from around the world, but acclaimed psychologist Dr. Ede Frecska, Chairman of Psychiatry at the University of Debrecen in Hungary, is pushing the envelope, aiming to demonstrate that DMT can extend the life of consciousness beyond clinical death for a longer duration of time than is currently possible…”

What’s DMT and Why are Techies and Entrepreneurs Secretly Taking it?

“This probably isn’t a shock to anyone following trends in tech and startups, particularly the glorification of the 8-trillion hour workweek (#hustle). But business owners, entrepreneurs, and technologists are also turning to other hallucinogens to awaken higher levels of consciousness in hopes of influencing favorable business results…”

New DMT Study Provides Additional Link to Gamma Wave Formation

New DMT Study Provides Additional Link to Gamma Wave Formation

“A new study published in Scientific Reports definitively observed that indolethylamine-N-methyltransferase (INMT) is found in both human and rat brains throughout the cerebral cortex, choroid plexus, and pineal gland. The importance of this finding is based on the fact that INMT is the enzyme responsible for biosynthesizing DMT from tryptamine. Prior studies were inconclusive regarding this based on out-dated protocols that lacked sensitivity…”

Scientists Microdosed Rats With DMT, and It Was Both Good and "Concerning"

Scientists Microdosed Rats With DMT, and It Was Both Good and "Concerning"

“People who experiment with microdosing claim that it can help a person to think more creatively, feel less anxious, and sharpen focus. But despite plenty of anecdotal evidence and Silicon Valley’s ample claims that these positive effects are real, scientists still can’t definitively say that microdosing actually works. Bringing us closer to a clear answer is a new study showing that microdosing can indeed have beneficial effects — but not without potential downsides…”
