Abstract Summarized are psychonautic bioassays (human self-experiments) of pharmañopo—crystalline bufotenine (5-HO-DMT; 5-hydroxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine; dimethylserotonine), at times combined with harmaline or harmine—via intranasal, sublingual, intrarectal, pulmonary (inhaled vapor) and oral routes. This is done by way of pharmacological modeling of diverse South American shamanic inebriants, principally the snuffs ñopolyopo and cebíhatáj, prepared from seeds of Anadenanthera peregrina var… Expand

The hallucinogenic world of tryptamines: an updated review
TLDR
A comprehensive update on tryptamine hallucinogens, concerning their historical background, prevalence, patterns of use and legal status, chemistry, toxicokinetics, toxicodynamics and their physiological and toxicological effects on animals and humans is provided. Expand
Developments in harmine pharmacology — Implications for ayahuasca use and drug-dependence treatment
TLDR
The pharmacological mechanisms for the putative reduction in recidivism to alcohol and cocaine misuse are suggested and inhibition of dual-specificity tyrosine-phosphorylation regulated kinase 1A (DYRK1A) and the dopamine transporter is suggested. Expand
Transformative Psychopharmacology: the Case of 5-Methoxy-N,N-Dimethyltryptamine

TLDR
The pharmacological, the transformative psychopharmacology, the effects and adverse events of 5-methoxy-N, N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) and its place in postmodern medicine is presented. Expand
Psychedelic 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine: metabolism, pharmacokinetics, drug interactions, and pharmacological actions.
5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) belongs to a group of naturally-occurring psychoactive indolealkylamine drugs. It acts as a nonselective serotonin (5-HT) agonist and causes manyExpand
Obviation of Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome by Concomitant Administration of Naltrexone in Microgram Doses: Two Psychonautic Bioassays
  • J. Ott
  • Medicine
  • Journal of psychoactive drugs
  • 2006
TLDR
It was found that coadministration of naltrexone with codeine phosphate obviated the development of both tolerance and physical dependency over several months of four daily oral doses of 200 mg, allowing abrupt (“cold turkey”), asymptomatic and uneventful withdrawal. Expand
Recreational Use, Analysis and Toxicity of Tryptamines
TLDR
Information from Internet and from published scientific literature, organized in the way proposed in this review, provides an effective tool for specialists facing the emerging NPS threat to public health and public security, including the personnel working in Emergency Department. Expand
Identification of 5-hydroxy-tryptamine (bufotenine) in takini (Brosimumacutifolium Huber subsp. acutifolium C.C. Berg, Moraceae), a shamanic potion used in the Guiana Plateau.
TLDR
This paper is the first thorough analysis of takini, a hallucinogen used by the shamans of several peoples in Suriname, French Guiana, and the region east of the Para in Brazil, and reveals that the active ingredient is bufotenine, and that this compound is only contained in the subspecies Brosimum acutifolium Huber subsp. Expand
Biological Effects and Biodistribution of Bufotenine on Mice
TLDR
Results show that the effective dose, 0.63 mg/day, is safe to be administered in mice, since it did not cause significant effects on the animals' physiology and on the CNS, and higher doses were well tolerated. Expand
Hallucinogenic Plants in the Mediterranean Countries
TLDR
A vast majority of the Mediterranean countries, including Greece, contain plants that are known for their hallucinogenic and other properties, and the inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic, and antiparkinsonian properties of the plant are under investigation. Expand

TLDR
The 1967 Holmstedt-Lindgren hypothesis of the ayahuasca effect--oral psychoactivity of DMT consequent to monoamine-oxidase (MAO) inhibition from simultaneous ingestion of beta-carbolines--has been confirmed by eight self-experimenters. Expand

The Yanomamo Indians of southern Venezuela and northern Brazil employ hallucinogenic snuffs made from a wide variety of feral and domestic plants. Schultes (1967: 303) has recently suggested thatExpand
A multidisciplinary overview of intoxicating snuff rituals in the western hemisphere.
TLDR
The literature yields convincing clinical evidence that atropine, cocaine, nicotine and scopolamine are effective following nasal application, but experimental confirmation of the efficacy of nasal tryptamine alkaloids is still awaited. Expand
Bufotenine esters.
TLDR
It was found that these esters all possess a relatively high affinity for the serotonin receptors of the isolated rat stomach fundus preparation, suggesting extensive hydrolysis of the esters to bufotenine does not occur under the conditions of the affinity assay. Expand

TLDR
The extensive literature surrounding the Bufo toad and bufotenine is examined, and many of the myths and the misinformation that continue to vex both science and popular reporting are untangled. Expand
