DMT is a psychoactive drug that was found to have hallucinative effects on the human mind. In recent years, this drug was declared illegal in many countries irrespective of the positive impacts it could bring to the human body. UK has become the first country to legally allow the first trial of the drug DMT to treat depression.
The drug was supposed to be given to patients during their sessions of psychotherapy. It has been given a green flag since it was supposed to eliminate and help the individuals to relieve themselves from the negative thoughts that had been caused by stress. The drug was expected to develop new connections in the brain and provide relief to the users from the unwanted stress they had been holding to for a long time in their minds.
DMT was expected to bring good results to the users and help the individuals to put themselves back in their daily track of life. It is not only helpful for treating depression but comes beneficial for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorders, treatment resisting depression, and problems arising due to substance abuse.
The drug can be found naturally in most plants and it forms a major component of Ayahuasca. The drug was also available in the streets of the UK and being a class A substance, a heavy jail term would be imposed on the individuals who were found to be using this or getting involved in the supply of the drug. So for the first time, the trials on the usage of the drug have begun. Although it has been started with a small dose, it is expected to bring a good impact on the individuals. The impact of the drug can be felt quickly in comparison to psychotherapy sessions.
Ayahuasca was also believed to have anti-depressant impacts on individuals. It is a common belief that Ayahuasca was supposed to be made of Banisteriopsis Caapi vine but it was needed in the drink to avoid the destruction of Psychotria Viridis in the stomach of individuals. Ayahuasca retreats are very famous in Peru and individuals take part in such retreats to get a life-changing experience from them. It was supposed to cure them of many negative feelings that suffocate them in mind. Studies are going on to find out more impacts of the drug.
