Microdosing 101: A Complete Guide To Deadhead Chemist 4-AcO-DMT
Note: This guide has been created to assist you in the safe and legal use of this substance. DMT is illegal in most parts of the world and we do not promote the use of this substance in such areas. For users that decide to use this substance, we provide a complete guide about the substance to ensure that all its users are kept safe.
So What Exactly Is 4-ACO-DMT?
DMT, which is scientifically known as N,N-Dimethyltryptamineis is a psychoactive chemical substance that is found naturally in some plants and animals. It can even be found in the human brain, so we are somewhat already exposed to this chemical substance. It is used by some cultures, for ritual purposes, to alter the state of their consciousness and mood. People like the Amazonians sometimes used DMT found in ayahuasca to undergo this psychedelic experience. DMT was developed by the same man who discovered LSD, Mr. Albert Hofmann, as well as Franz Troxler. They discovered DMT with Sandoz Limited who did the honor of patenting the drug in 1963.
There are several different ways that people ingest DMT with a lot of people ingesting it while it is still in its crystal form. Some people prefer to smoke it out of a pipe or a bong or even inject it. Smoking it or injecting both create a very powerful yet short trip, and it is believed to be one of the most potent hallucinogenic experiences that you could go through.
Of the many “grey market” research chemicals out there, 4-AcO-DMT is probably among the safest. 4-AcO-DMT is a synthetic psychedelic tryptamine with close structural similarities to the “magic mushroom” molecules psilocybin and psilocin.

How To Microdose With 4-ACO-DMT
4-ACO-DMT is usually sold in a crystallized or powdered form so it can easily be ingested through orally as well as through many other different measures. But the most preferred and simplest way to take the substance is orally, even though it doesn’t have the best taste.
When you are measuring the dose that you want to consume you must remember that adding or taking away a few milligrams from the substance can change your experience completely. According to scientific analysis and reports, the best and most efficient volume of microdoses that you take should be between 0.5mg and 5mg. Though you should stick to the lighter volumes if you are just beginning to take DMT, as something as high as 5mg might be very difficult for some people to deal with. As a beginner, you could start with 1mg and then apply what you experienced to subsequent measurements. Although, because most scales that are available to people are not perfectly accurate at measuring such tiny amounts, then you should use the method of volumetric microdosing to be sure of the amount you are consuming.
Volumetric Microdosing Of 4-ACO-DMT
A great way for you to keep your microdoses uniform and reliable is for you to dissolve a specific amount in a liquid solution and take each serving out from there bit by bit. For example, if you dissolve 25mg of 4-ACO-DMT in 25ml of alcohol, each milliliter of the solution will contain a standard 1g of the substance, and this dose can then be either increased or reduced according to the concentration you desire, and it could be ingested through the mouth using a small blunt syringe. To properly prepare a solution of 4-ACO-DMT for microdosing, you should:
- First weigh out 25mg of 4-ACO-DMT on a precise milligram scale.
- Add this substance to a sterile amber glass containing 25ml of ethanol or ethyl alcohol.
- Seal the bottle and shake it.
- Leave it to stand overnight and after store it in a freezer.
This solution could last for up to two years if you store it in ethanol at a temperature of -4oF. You could use purified water to make the solution, although it will degrade faster, especially with the taking in and out of the freezer. No matter what solvent you use though, the substance will usually last longer when it is kept dry. Because of this, it is best for you to prepare the solutions in small batches and to match the schedule at which you microdose.
DMT In Combination With Other Substances
- Alchohol: The combination of 4-AcO-DMT is not a good choice when the substance is taken in medium or large doses as it could lead to several health problems such as nausea, fatigue, and dehydration. However, when the substance is taken in small proportions, it does not have as much of a negative effect and it is said to be quite safe. When the alcohol is used in conjunction with the substance, it can sometimes take the sting out of the DMT and even play a role similar to benzodiazepines in reducing the hallucinogenic effect of the substance.
- Benzodiazepines: Depending on how much you use, benzodiazepines can either completely or partially reduce the effect of the DMT on the thinking and perceptive qualities of an individual. They can prove to be very effective when it comes to decreasing the potency of psychedelic substances on the cognitive and physical attributes of a person, although it could lead to amnesia and of course reduce the intensity of the substance. You should however be careful when using benzodiazepines as they are quite addictive and have a high potential to be abused.
- Cannabis: Cannabis greatly increases the intensity that is felt in the cognitive and sensory parts of the body after the DMT has been consumed. You should be careful with the amount of cannabis that you use together with this substance as it could amplify some negative mental effects substantially, especially if you are not very well experienced with using psychedelic substances.
- MDMA: The effect of MDMA on the thinking and perception ability of a person is greatly amplified by the addition of 4-AcO-DMT and the combination of these two seems to be quite dynamic. You should start with smaller doses of this substance with the DMT as the level of toxicity that this substance brings remains unknown.
- Dissiocatives: Dissiocatives are naturally known to increase the feelings of euphoria, geometry, and dissociation, and the addition of DMT seems to just amplify these effects. The combination of DMT and MDMA would lead to much clearer and more evocative hallucinations and images. It could also cause delusions, confusion, and nausea.
Creating A Microdosing Schedule
Due to scientific research, it has been discovered that it is safest to microdose not any more than once every three days. This means that if you take a microdose on Monday in a week, you should then wait till Thursday before you take another one, thereby skipping Tuesday and Wednesday. You should observe the effect that this schedule has on you, and you should record your experiences in a journal. Make sure you go into detail in this journal, writing about the whole experience from before you take it, while you’re on the trip and after you have taken it, as well as any effect it may have had on your cognitive and sensory qualities and its long-term and short-term effects. Also, note what goes on in those two days between the microdoses and any changes or feelings you might experience.
If you are trying microdosing for the first time, then you should probably not take part in any serious activities that require your full attention and reasoning. You should instead take the time after to try and notice any unusual changes that occur in you and understand what is the right dose for you and how well your body reacted to the substance.
It is not advisable for you to microdose every day as you could generate tolerance for the substance so it has less of an effect on you. This is why it is recommended that you take a space of a few days in between microdosing, so it has a good effect on you. Another reason why you should not microdose every day is for your safety. Some research has shown that constant use of psychedelic substances could lead to heart problems so it is best to not take it too frequently.
What Does 4-AcO-DMT Do?
The experience that comes with the consumption of 4-AcO-DMT is usually described as a more gentle version of psilocybin. The substance is well known for its strong visual effects on the consumer when it is taken in high doses, and weaker but still relatively strong effects when taken in moderate doses. The people who have taken DMT have said things in their surroundings seem to breathe and wave, and that they seem to be both more intense and predictable than mushrooms. The trip that results from consuming 4-AcO-DMT can last for between two and eight hours, and this depends primarily on how much of a dose you consumed as well as the medium through which it was consumed. When you ingest it orally, you usually feel the major effects within the first 45minutes after it has been consumed, with the peak that you reach lasting for about 2hours or longer and the comedown then lasting for over an hour.
During the trip, you would most likely experience some feelings like laughter, excitement, a spike in creative juices, and heightened perception. You could also experience things like auditory and visionary hallucinations, greater awareness and sensitivity, dizziness, sweating or chills, paranoia, and anxiety. Some extreme trips can involve the distortion of reality greater than just hallucinations. There could be huge changes in one’s feelings about the universe and their surroundings, including sometimes seeing spirits and even experiencing ego death. There could also be temporary amnesia as a result of taking high doses of the substance. Below is a more detailed explanation of the physical effects of 4-AcO-DMT on an individual:
- Changes in the body sensitivity: While in the peak of your trip, you may experience the feeling of warmth in your body accompanied by a strong feeling of connection between you and whatever is in your surroundings. This feeling can come in the form of you becoming tranquil or creating a feeling of tension within you. But you will experience a change in the way you feel.
- Sedation: The consumption of 4-AcO-DMT is known to create a quite relaxing and sort of sedative feel and it could sometimes be translated as tiredness, as you may experience yawning as well.
- Random sensations in the body: When you are on a trip with 4-AcO-DMT, you tend to experience a warm and tingling sensation deep inside you. This sensation starts moderately but rises till when you get to the peak of the trip and then it becomes pronounced as it hits its limit. Once you have reached the peak of this sensation, then you would experience strong feelings of excitement mixed with a sense of calm and also the feeling of tranquility.
- Other physical effects include Pupil dilation, watery eyes, a heightened sense of smell, muscle relaxation, and more.
Apart from the physical effects that 4-AcO-DMT has on an individual, it also has several effects on the cognitive and mental qualities of an individual. The substance leads to such symptoms as:
- Intensification of emotions: The emotional effect that 4-AcO-DMT has on an individual is more than what is seen when other psychedelics like LSD are consumed. The consumption of 4-AcO-DMT can lead to one experiences strong feelings and emotions such as compassion as well as feeling sudden surges of emotion rise through the body. This substance seems to open up the emotional floodgates of an individual and bring everything out. However, due to research they are not nearly as emotionally enhancing as psilocybin mushrooms.
- Increased awareness: The consumption of 4-AcO-DMT could also lead to an increase in the speed of one’s cognitive process, allowing the individual to analyze and understand situations much quicker than usual.
- Feeling of death and destruction: This feeling is usually explained as a feeling of impending doom and it is usually experienced during the first couple of minutes in a trip (the come up phase) and it usually fades away as the more major effects come into play. This effect is sometimes felt at the peak of the trip but it is usually overpowered by the more energetic and positive feelings. It is very important to keep a positive mind when using this substance majorly due to this feeling which could lead to several bad thoughts.
- Rejuvenation: You could also experience a feeling of rejuvenation within your body as the energy seems to flow with more vigor and velocity. This effect could occur at any point in the trip and it usually follows a phase of the trip that is relatively difficult.
- Speech restriction: This effect has been described as the inability to clearly express one’s thoughts and emotions even though these are being well formulated within one’s mind and it is very common among first-timers and consumers who are not very experienced in using psychedelics.
- Coinciding emotions: When using 4-AcO-DMT. One could experience feelings of happiness at the same time as feeling sad or angry. A person could feel well energized and invigorated and at the same time feel sedated and tranquil.
- You could also experience feelings of enhancement of creativity, fits of laughter, amnesia, enhancement of music and colours, and ego death.
The Safety And Quality Of Your 4-AcO-DMT
It is not too uncommon for an individual to receive fake or substandard substances so you should make sure you check your 4-AcO-DMT to make sure it is original and safe to consume. And it is best to order from a trusted supplier to reduce the risk of your substance not being top quality.
We do not advise you to use this substance if it illegal where you are because it can be seen on a drug test if you are tested for the presence of psilocin. Also, be careful with the doses of this substance that you consume so it does not result in any serious consequences on your body and mind.
What Schedule Should I Follow?
With 4-AcO-DMT micro dose, the purpose is to enhance your day to day lifestyle. Dr. James Fadiman, author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide, suggests microdosing no more than once every three days. That means taking a microdose on Day 1 and Day 4 from whenever you start your schedule, but not on Day 2 or Day 3.
We do recommend to keep a journal with notes of your daily activities both short-term, in-the-moment effects and long-term changes to your mood, energy, and social behaviour.
