What is Changa?
Changa is the term used to describe an infused smoking blend containing NN-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and some Harmalas (Harmine, Harmaline and Tetra-hydr-harmine), sourced either from easily available plant material or as the isolate freebases. Changa may therefore be considered as a smokable iteration of the so-called ‘Ayahuasca-analogues’, which can accordingly be prepared from a wide range of plants. Somewhat controversially among some researchers, similar effects can also be produced by smoking ‘Pharmahuasca’, a mixture of DMT and Harmalas in their respective freebase forms.
The advantages to Changa include that it enables the easier ingestion of a psychedelic dose of DMT than does smoking the freebase form on its own (consequently encouraging finer calibration of dosage) and that it induces a gentler experience much longer in duration than that brought on by smoking DMT. Despite smoking Changa often still feeling to the author akin to being fired into Outer Hyperspace, the onset of the trip is ordinarily less intense than DMT on its own, as the presence of the Harmalas slows things down, as well as subjectively deepening and smoothing the experience.
