What Are DMT Vape Pens and How Do They Work?
A vape pen is a vaporizing device designed to vaporize distillates and oils. They are mostly used to vaporize nicotine and cannabis and are called pens because their compact design resembles that of a traditional ballpoint pen and consists of two pieces: a battery and a cartridge. The vaping substance, commonly known as E-liquid, is often flavored and comes in prefilled or refillable cartridges. A DMT vape pen is simply a vape pen, or E-cigarette, that uses an E-liquid cartridge containing DMT. As with cannabis, DMT vape pens have the benefits of ease of use, convenience, and control overdosage. The psychoactive effects of vaping DMT are mostly identical to those experienced when smoking it. DMT is a controlled substance and remains illegal in many places. However, it is possible to find cartridges online with us which will be suitable for vaping DMT. Once the cartridge is in hand, vaping DMT is much like vaping any other substance, but with a few simple differences to distinguish the experience.
How to Use DMT Vape Pens
Vaping DMT is a simple enough process, but there are a few tricks to making the most of the experience, especially for those who have not dived deeply into the fractal-driven world of smoking DMT.
If your cartridge doesn’t come with a battery, it is important to have a battery that burns on a high charge. The DMT needs to burn hot to vape properly. A rule of thumb when looking for a hotter burning battery is the bulk factor. The super-slim, lightweight batteries aren’t your best option.
Shake it Up
Many users have reported that shaking the pen prior to vaping the DMT helps significantly. Vape cartridges are popping up all over the world but from widely sourced anecdotal evidence, DMT seems to slightly separate in the cartridge from the mixing agent that is used. Vigorously shaking the cartridge for about 30 seconds has proven time and again to be incredibly effective.
Upon interviewing users, we heard a firsthand account further supporting this theory. One user recounted a story where he used the first cartridge he purchased without first substantially shaking it. For the first three-quarters of the cartridge, the vape experience was hit-or-miss. However, once the cartridge was down to the last of the DMT, the vape experiences became almost too strong. In fact, the DMT was so strong the user passed out. He then chose to try it again, only to have the same blackout experience. The user came to the conclusion that this experience is possibly the result of vaping the concentrated product that was left at the bottom of the unshaken cartridge. This supports the assumption that the beginning hits had smaller amounts of actual DMT, due to the DMT and mixing agent being separated.
Set and Setting
The experience above is one example of why set and setting are important. Check out our guide to Harm Reduction for more information on how to navigate a psychedelic DMT experience safely.
DMT should only be inhaled in a comfortable, safe environment. Many prefer no background noise, no talking, just stillness, and silence. Others enjoy listening to music. DMT ceremonies have grown in popularity as well. These ceremonies are reportedly beneficial for growth in one’s personal life, including relationships. DMT ceremonies are organized underground and can be found through word of mouth.
Because DMT vape cartridges are so easily accessible, the birth of this new device has taken DMT to a more casual level of use, creating some controversy in the partaking community. There are strong beliefs that DMT should not be used recreationally and instead reserved only for spiritual and emotional healing.
“Safety first” is the rule when it comes to psychedelics. DMT vape pens are powerful and should be handled with extreme care. This is especially important when considering how easily one could be mistaken for cannabis or tobacco, if in the wrong hands. Always keep your DMT cartridge in a place where no one can access it without knowing exactly what they are getting themselves into. Keep your DMT cartridge separate from your cannabis and tobacco cartridges.
It is advised that you vape sitting down, with the option to lie down if necessary. DMT has overwhelming effects. Prepare yourself properly, in order to avoid falling or hitting your head.
STEPS TO VAPE
- Shake Pen
- Exhale all of your air
- Inhale a large hit from the DMT pen
- Hold in the hit (the longer the better)
Once you are familiar with the effects of DMT, it is advised to add an additional hit immediately after exhaling to achieve a peak experience.
If, after shaking the pen and inhaling twice in a row, you still don’t reach the pinnacle level of a DMT high, it is likely you purchased your cartridge from a source that cuts the DMT too much with a blending agent. When this happens, you will still experience visuals and a plethora of fractals but you will not reach the out-of-body experience that should come with inhaling DMT smoke.
As with all psychedelics, it is worth acknowledging the important benefits that can come from setting an intention before use. DMT is a powerful substance found in ayahuasca. In many cultures, DMT is used to move between worlds and realms and to connect with spirits. Setting an intention before using this powerful substance is a positive and worthwhile act.
Why do people vape DMT?
Vaping DMT makes it much more convenient when compared to actually lighting it up and smoking it. Vaping also makes DMT use much more discreet, which is a major plus when you realize that the government treats this life-saving substance as the equivalent of crack or heroin. No one wants to risk getting in trouble with the law, and using a vape pen can help obscure the signature odor that is emitted through combustion.
