Can You Smoke Cane Toad Poison?

Can You Smoke Cane Toad Poison?

What is toad venom smoking? Cane toads are well-known for producing a white liquid from their backs. The toads squirt the poison at their predators to protect themselves. When natives first discovered the toads' position, they used it for medical properties but mainly to experience euphoria and hallucinations. For someone to smoke cane toad poison, the venom is extracted and burned. The smoke fills a person’s lungs which begins the effects.

How to Smoke Toad Venom

Typically, people would complete an action referred to as “toad licking” to achieve heightened perceptual experiences. Toad poison inflicts intense emotions and vivid images for people to feel and see. However, licking frogs is not as popular a method in the modern day. Instead, a person may smoke the venom to experience the same effects as DMT (N-dimethyltryptamine, a hallucinogenic tryptamine drug); however, the venom is used to create synthetic 5-MEO-DMT, which means it’s DMT on steroids.

People who smoke Cane toad poison most commonly will burn a dose of dried powder venom. From 5 mg to 40mg of the toxin is inhaled in a single breath. For synthetic 5-MEO-DMT, a person should not exceed a high dose of 6mg. Smoking toad venom or “smoking toad” follows by extracting or “milking” the poison from the animal. The effects can last seven to forty-five minutes.

Can You Die From Smoking Toad Venom?

If a person is to smoke cane toad poison, it’s generally regarded as safe. However, the severity of the side effects of smoking the toxin depends on proper preparation, dose, and general health of the smoker. Preparation is different if a person decides to smoke, eat, or inject the poison. Though using cane toad poison is never recommended, if using this drug, for overall safety, it's advised to smoke the poison. Psychedelic effects take place seconds after inhaling the smoke.

Other impacts of smoking the poison include:

  • Mood
  • Sleep patterns
  • Sexual behavior
  • Body temperature
  • Hunger or appetite
  • Sensory perception
  • Muscle coordination

The overall mission for someone to take the toxin is to have an out-of-body experience. However, the poison can be hazardous if someone misuses the amount and takes more than they should. The poison, used as a psychedelic drug, can cause people to have a bad trip. A bad trip may inflict long-term mental complications or cause a disorder like severe depression.
