The psychoactive molecule 5-MeO-DMT is shrouded in lore – from stories about licking the backs of toads to its nickname “the God Molecule.” This powerful psychedelic can either be synthesized in a lab or sourced naturally by extracting it from toad venom. Therapist and psychedelic researcher Rafael Lancelotta sees incredible potential in using 5-MeO-DMT to help people address trauma and other forms of mental illness. In this episode of The Lex Files, Lancelotta sits down with Lex to discuss the history, science and real world therapeutic applications of 5-MeO-DMT.

Lancelotta is a member of the Source Foundation, an organization that provides grants to students interested in researching anything related to psychadelics.
