In an interview with boingboing, author of ‘DMT: The Spirit Molecule’, Rick Strassman, briefly compares DMT to ayahuasca when asked about potential healing modalities of DMT.
‘Ayahuasca, which contains DMT in an orally active form, is much more manageable (than DMT) – effects begin in 30-45 minutes, peak at 2-3 hours, and are resolved in 4-6 hours. There are countless field reports of healing of physical, emotional, and addictive problems within the context of ayahuasca use – either in syncretic churches, medical clinics, or shamanic use. More and more literature is appearing in this regard, and more sophisticated scientific studies are now beginning to take place.’
