The venom from Bufo alvarius, an unusual toad found in the Sonoran Desert, contains 5-MeO-DMT, a potent natural Chemical similar in effect to the more common entheogen DMT. The venom can be dried into a powder, which some researchers speculate was used ceremonially by Amerindian shamans. When smoked it prompts an instantaneous break with the physical world that causes out-of-body experiences completely removed from the conventional dimensions of reality.
