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

Amazing documentary about a molecule that exists in almost every living thing on the planet
14 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

DMT The Spirit Molecule takes you on a journey to explore the possibilities of what this molecule, DMT could mean to man kind...

So what is DMT? It is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter that is in almost all living things...and one of the highest levels of DMT can be found in your common lawn grass.

With first hand accounts of peoples experiences with DMT, beautiful recounts and animations, this documentary is a fascinating look at what..why...and most importantly, when...

The interviews are captivating. When they talk its easy to see why its thought to be something that all humans should experience. There are some interesting facts and ideas about the way it might be working with the human mind, like ideas about it being stored in the pineal gland and its connection to religious experience.

It's good, super interesting, you should watch it :)
