The DMT was given via an intravenous line and the researchers did not attempt to question the subjects until the trip had finished, allowing them to take in the full experience of the substance uninterrupted.

In the two decades following the studies, research on other psychedelics has gradually picked up and the public is just starting to gain awareness of their efficacy for treating various sorts of mental disorders.

The DMT study, although not focused on therapeutic effects, cracked open the door to government-sanctioned research.

“So my strategy when it comes to oregano oil is use it as one part of a strategy.

If you’re going to be using oregano oil, use that for about a week.

That kind of thing.” “These clinical and preliminary quantitative data provide bases for further psychopharmacologic characterization of DMT’s properties in humans,” the study concludes.

“They also may be used to compare the effects of other agents affecting relevant brain receptors in volunteer and psychiatric populations.” In this and other studies, Strassman and his team ended up working with 60 volunteers in total, providing a foundation of knowledge about DMT that had previously been absent from the scientific record.

During the study, researchers gave 12 subjects DMT and then interviewed them about their experiences.

In contrast to an ayahuasca journey, which can last for many hours, the subjects who took straight DMT reported that the trip began immediately, peaked within two minutes and was finished in half an hour.

Species of oregano also yield high levels of thymol, a thyme-scented phenol known for its antioxidant, antifungal and antiseptic properties.
