Vaporizing DMT

topic posted Tue, November 14, 2006 - 5:57 PM by  Eazy
Swim is curious about vaporizing pure DMT in a high quality vaporizer like the Wicked Roots or Volcano. I have read that DMT boils at 60-70C which is pretty low it seems. The nice vapes have the adjustable temp but I have heard mixed reviews and people say it messes up their box. Is it due to the impurity of the extraction tek or something else about DMT?
Granted nothing can rival the versatility of a good ole glass crackpipe/inhaler for DMT

    Well, I used a crappy-or-not-so-crappy BC Vaporizer for my DMT sessions, and it was just working fine.
    Loaded 100 mg of clear yellow crystals and in 12-13 minutes the dome was filled with thick vapor.

    Once I ripped into the Hyperspace from the very first toke- I guess, I slightly miscalculated the dose, which is quite easy when talking about mgs.
    The advantage of vaporizers, that there is no loss- everything you load will crackle through your ears.
    There is a big question though, if a vaporizer induces the same effects as smoked from a glasspipe.

    You're right Tom, the "boiling" temp is quite low. Give it a try. Safe journey!

      It seems like the problem (at least with the Volcano) is that the dmt would drip through the screen mesh. I don't know about any other vaporizers, but it seems like anything with a screen isn't a good idea to put the dmt directly onto.

        Yes it can be some messy stuff, probably dedicating a glass whip for DMT would be wise so that you don't have to fuss over cleaning the screen.

          using a couple of old school techniques incorproated into high tech vapos
          seems to work very well.

          The duke swears by the vapo
          he suggests
          Pancaking micro screens, 10 works well
          with small pile of cigar ash to bind the spice, seems to completly elliminate dripppage, wasted melting etc.

          The duke prefers to dedicate his spice equipment however, primarily because it is so permeating in smell and when he wants to engage in simpler herbal travels, the olefactory recall of the spice sometimes negates the cherished calming nature of the green gaia as he gets a little anxious and tense at the taste of spice.

            ..Hah ! "a little anxious" ... is right .. ! a slight whiff and I get goosebumps ... pricklesmyego... So I have an air-tight box to keep the dedicated devices in.

              ^I know the feeling.

              Yes, making a pile of ash from some inactive herb, may I suggest damiana, and then putting the DMT freebase on top of that will work if you have a screen vaporizer. The best is a glass pipe with a v in the neck. If you have a friendly neigborhood glass-blower, he/she might be able to fabricate a custom hyperdimensional transporter. :)

                I tried to make a home made pipe out of aluminum foil once, put a butane jet lighter under it and it immediately vaporized the dmt but also melted the aluminum!

                It worked great, but unfortunately, I also ingested some of that aluminum.... bad news. I did not know it until afterwards.

                  I bet making a homemade pipe out of a regular spoon, having the aluminum form a bubble canopy over the top of the spoon holding the dmt, with the foil forming a tube for the smoke to travel through up the handle of the spoon would work just fine, heating the bottom of the spoon holding the alkaloid would prevent the aluminum from melting.

                  I hear a simple tempered glass tube works very well, if you can find a small 3/8 diameter glass tube just a few inches long and heat the bottom of the glass with a lighter of some kind ought to get the dmt vaporized.

                    if one has a torch
                    then putting a carb
                    in a test tube
                    will not be difficult
                    a tiny hole is all that is needed
                    about 2 cm above the bottom
                    an impinger
                    a filter flask
                    or similar
                    is always convenient as well

                      A hole 2 cm above the bottom ? Is this for a test tube? Direct flame will not crack the glass?

                        A low tech vaporizer for DMT is to get a new light bulb, screw into a lamp with the shade removed, find an old paper towel or toilet paper tube, or straight glass tube. Turn on the lamp. As it heats up, and the DMT vaporizes, inhale, suck in the vapors with the tube. And get ready for hyperspace. Low tech, but effective.

                          Doesn't liquid on a hot bulb make it shatter? I'm not sure this is entirely true all around, but I do remember spitting on a hot lightbulb when I was a kid and it shattered. You may be right, since it sounds like you've probably done it, but just to be safe, I thought I'd ask.

                          A freebase pipe only costs a few bucks really. It's very simple, incredibly effective, and that's essentially what it's made for. Cheap, straightforward, and made specifically for that purpose...

                            You know DMT is illegal, right?

                            I don't recommend a freebase pipe. It also depends on how hot the light is. We're not talking about a 1000 watt high pressure sodium light, here.

                              I'm curious, why don't you reccomend a freebase pipe? It works spectacularly. I recognize your knowledge, but you do not have infinite credibility. Therefore, your reccomendations (or lack thereof) would be better off explained in more detail. Currently I see no reason why a freebase pipe isn't the simplest and most straightforward way of intaking dmt vapors, and not only that but it works like a champ (UNDOUBTEDLY in my knowledge and experience). So, I am more than open to your opinion, but an explanation is necessary if you are trying to be convincing. But, I know that's what Terence reccomended and it is what I have repeatedly used to more success than I could have possibly hoped for.

                              And, yes, I am utterly clear on the fact that dmt is a schedule 1 substance.

                                and just to make sure that we're on the same page, the type of pipe I'm referring to is in the image archive of this tribe, about 3/5ths of the way down the page (if you "show all" images). I even posted it, so you can just search for "Kevin" on the page and you will eventually get to it. I know that there are at least a couple different kind of freebase pipe around and I'm not sure what anybody else is imagining when I say it.

                                  I know this is probably a stupid question but you light the underside of a freebase pipe? Or hold the flame over is slightly?

                                In my original post I mention that of course the standard freebase pipe is most versatile and is the easiest way but to go.

                                I was interested in other people's experiences using a high quality vaporizers, say if one already had one and was just curious, etc.

                                Making your own homegrown vaporizer from scratch would be a big waste of effort compared to the freebase pipe, but all opinions are welcome, of course.

                                  Just a reminder that smoking out of tinfoil, light bulbs, or other home-made devices may expose you to god knows what toxins. Please keep that in mind!

                                    Good point. I'm no fan of metal screens either. Less even of 'customised' aluminium cans. I once rolled a joint with regular writing paper. Bad idea. Lesson learned: don't get too desperate :)

                                      SWIM told someone who I read about online once that the best thing to do is gt a Altoids tin, clean it out, place the spice on the inside, hold a lighter underneth, it should then melt and vaporize vary fast, when this happens the person taking it should hve a straw or empty pen to suck up the vapor, when that person is holding in the hit, the metal case can be closed so less spice is wasted,
                                      also on the last hit the case shold be closed, within an hour or so it should go back to crystal form and can be used again, SWIM supposidly said the hits aren't as harsh if the person taking the spice drinks a little milk to coat thair throat and offset the taste. But thats just what SWIM told someone. :)

                                        I believe that's called chasing the dragon & it's archaic compared to using a decent glass freebase pipe.

                                            the best meathod i have tried is a freebase type bubbler, just a small amount of water filtration makes the flavor so much better and no risk of inhailing materials. I don't know how accessable this is, but if you find one they rock. If you don't feel comfortable buying this kind of stuff, with glass tubes and a propane torch you can make many cheap glass bubble pipes. they don't usually break when you make them unless you have too quick in temperature change. Basically if you hold the torch in one spot it makes a hole, if you rotate the tube for a while and blow direct on the tube (or through rubber tubing if its too hot), you can make a nice bubble shape before you make the hole.

                        if you have pyrex/bomex/borosilicate glass/lab glass/etc
                        then the glass will not crack
                        but still best to warm gently
                        and then concetrate the flame
                        you were thinking about flint glass the green stuff
                        that can be molded with an alcohol lamp
                        but will not stand up to heating as well
                        at least not direct flame
                        it will then melt again
                        imprisoning your spice forever in a
                        transparent prison

        Hi everyone

        I've used the the Volcano with great success. It needed some adjustments though, in order to make it fool proof. I bought the liquids chamber including the liquid pads. With that there's no danger of anything dripping into the machine. I've also lowered the balloon size down to 1 big toke. 20-60mg vape easily into this size. Temperature on the Volcano, despite the low boiling/melting point of DMT, is set to 8. Initially I thought that's way too high but it seems that is required to vape the DMT quickly. It also helps to pre-heat the Volcano for a while.

        For getting rid of the smell, all one has to do is changing/switching the mouthpiece and chamber (back to the herb chamber).

        It's a small investment but IMO well worth it.

        This works great for me and hopefully this information will be beneficial to other interested Volcano users as well.

        All the best.
