Storyline

The Spirit Molecule investigates dimethyltryptamine (DMT), an endogenous psychoactive compound, which exists in humans and numerous species of plants and animals. The documentary traces Dr. Rick Strassman's government-sanctioned, human DMT research and its many trials, tribulations, and inconceivable realizations. A closer examination of DMT's effects through the lens of two traditionally opposed concepts, science and spirituality, The Spirit Molecule explores the connections between cutting-edge neuroscience, quantum physics, and human spirituality. Strassman's research, and the experiences of the human test subjects before, during, and after the intense clinical trials, raises many intriguing questions. A variety of experts voice their unique thoughts and experiences with DMT within their respective fields. As Strassman's story unfolds, the contributors weigh in on his remarkable theories, including the synthesis of DMT in our brain's pineal gland, its link to near-death & ... Written by Mitch Schultz

Hard to take seriously due to the editing
6 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

It seemed like this was filmed almost for children, the cheesy graphics, Joe Rogan segues where he's in a lab with chemicals set to grainy black and white, what was the age group they were trying to cater too?

I have such a problem with the way drug culture is shown. Here we have a bunch of old and intelligent people talking about DMT with their pool of knowledge and experience on the subject matter... and while they're talking there's this background ~*trippy music*~ and quick cuts to graphics and the generic drug fueled imagery. This would have worked with Alex Grey's segment as he's an artist who specializes in creating art much like the transitions, but when it's filming old doctors talking about it, it's just embarrassing.

Very informative, shame about the editing.
