How to Test DMT (The Spirit Molecule)

DMT can’t be identified reliably with the naked eye. We recommend testing with at least 2 tests when testing DMT. Proper testing is a multi-step process, which helps reduce the chances of false positives, and screen for substances mis-sold as DMT.

  1. The primary test for DMT is the Hofmann test. It yields a yellow color if DMT is present.
  2. We also recommend the Marquis test, as a secondary test for DMT. Marquis also detects 5-MeO-DMT, DIPT, DPT, and 4-HO-MET, and many other substances.
  3. The Ehrlich test, is an excellent secondary test for DMT. It also detects harlamine and LSD.

We’ve put together a DMT test kit package for your convenience.

If you’d like to go the extra mile, use the Mecke test, which produces a brown color with DMT, and also reacts with many other psychoactive substances.
