    The total alkaloid content in phalaris arundinacea ranges from 0.0004% to 0.121%, thus for every 'milligram' of alkaloid one wishes to obtain, anywhere from .826g to 250g must be processed. Thus to obtain 50mg of alkaloid, enough for one or 'maybe' two trips, one must process anywhere between 41.3 and 12,500 grams of this grass.

    This does NOT take into consideration that DMT is not the only alkaloid contained in most phalaris. Many contain small amounts of 5-MeO-DMT, Gramine, Beta-carbolines, and other compounds which may alter the experience or cause physical damage. It also doesn't take into consideration the actual yield of the extraction, which is not expected to be perfect. Thus, the amounts above should be multiplied by 2 (thus assuming a 50% actual yield of DMT.)

    Thus, at worst expect to be extracting up to 25kg of phalaris to get 50mg DMT, and at the very best expect to get about 10 grams DMT from the same amount.

    This resource provides information on the various strains. Even though it is incredibly hard to get a decent extract from these grasses, it's still fun to grow them for those that legally can.

    Next month swim is getting several fully grown Phalaris plants. Not sure on the exact species yet. I will report all of his experiences with growing and extracting.

    In the mean time, he's planting some Peurvian Torch seeds this weekend. I will be starting a thread on his growing/extracting experiences with these and other plants soon.


    EDIT: June 19 - So swim was not able to obtain the fully grown plants, he did obtain some seeds. Unfortunately, this spring has been insanely wet and his first attempt failed quite miserably. He was smart and didn't use all his seed, so he will try again, but work and school has prevented this from happening yet.

    While some SCAMR's are on this subject. SCAMR has found Phalaris in his back yard and he wants to make DMT with it he is 100% novice and this will be his 1st time. He has been researching for months but now he finds that Phalaris has gramine and it has conflicting remarks can someone help him with this?
    Can it be done should it be done with Phalaris?
