Bufo Alvarius, or Sonoran desert toad, lives in the Sonoran desert in Mexico. The glands of this toad contains a psychoactive substance which is collected by squeezing the substance of the glands onto a sheet of glass and letting it dry naturally in the sun. The drying process results in the crystallisation of the substance which is then smoked. The toad is not be harmed during this process. 

ACTIVE COMPOUNDS

Bufo Alvarius cutaneous glands contain more than a dozen tryptamine compounds, including 5-OH-DMT and 5-MeO-DMT.

HOW LONG DOES THE EFFECT LAST?

About an hour in length with the acute effects lasting anywhere from about 30-45 minutes. A very intense onset, usually beginning to take effect before you’ve finished exhaling the smoke.

COMMON EFFECTS

This is one of the most powerful entheogen experiences a person can have, and often provides opening and revealing deep states of “source consciousness” within the self. An effective ceremony can result in the movement of suppressed energies and can generate a variety of feelings, such as: opening up, letting go, catharsis, releasing, healing, remembering, reunification, trust, love, and bliss, amongst others. The default mode network of the brain shuts down for a few minutes resulting in a sense of loss of identity and dissolution of the sense self.
