The slang for DMT usually are derived from their shape or appearance. A common name, for example, refers to the liquid as “honey oil.” Another name is “clear oil.” Sometimes, individuals will call DMT “whitish-clear oil drops.”
DMT is short for Dimethyltryptamine. It is a chemical substance that occurs naturally in the human body and in many plants. DMT is believed to produce its effects through interaction with the serotonin receptors in the brain, specifically with the 5-HT2A receptor. The psychological effects of DMT can include euphoria and hallucinations, but the presence of DMT has not always been linked to psychedelic experiences. There are reports that it can induce altered states of consciousness during waking, dreamless sleep, and near death experiences.
Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a naturally occurring psychedelic substance of the tryptamine family found in many plants and animals. It is a structural analogue of serotonin and melatonin and a functional analogue of other psychedelic tryptamines such as 4-AcO-DMT, 5-MeO-DMT, 5-HO-DMT, psilocybin (4-PO-DMT), and psilocin (4-HO-DMT). Slang terms for DMT include Dimitri, Fantasia, Businessman’s trip, 45 minute psychosis, Businessman’s special, and Businessman’s lunch.
DMT is typically smoked, but can also be injected or ingested. Formally speaking, it’s NN-Dimethyltryptamine, and it’s listed under Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act in the United States. For some people, that classification seems unfair given its current level of use and potential safety benefits. Some people say it’s almost impossible to overdose on DMT.
DMT has no approved medical use in the U.S. Some people use the drug for its mind-altering effects, often called a trip, which are sometimes compared to those of LSD or psilocybin (“magic mushrooms”). Users generally smoke or inject the drug.
