Photomicrograph of crystallized dimethyltryptamine (DMT)
Like most “classical hallucinogens,” DMT effects can be most attributed to the specific activation of the 5-HT(2A) serotonin receptor. It’s structurally analogous to several other tryptamines, serotonin 5-HT, and the hormone melatonin. The agonistic action the drug has at the receptor sites for those signaling chemicals results in an intense short-term hallucinogenic state.
