A Compendium of Unauthorized Research

Details over forty years of civil disobedience. Legal questions, synthesis procedures, source plants and their cultivation, kitchen extraction processes, pyrolization tech, bioassay reports, debate over discarnate entities, and coverage of DMT's impact on art, music, film, and pop culture, are all elucidated within its many pages.

DMT Underground presents a diversity of perspectives, compiling the experience of those unauthorized researchers, basement shamans, and psychonaut-philosophers who've been quietly working in the field, making discoveries, and mapping mindscapes, despite attempts by a paternalistic government to criminalize curiosity.

A bounty of well-known authors share their knowledge and speculations, alongside newcomers and pseudonymous contributors. With a foreword by former illicit DMT chemist Nick Sand, DMT Underground also features contributions from:
