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.

- 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.

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.
