Brief overview - What is 5-MeO-DMT N-Oxide?

5-MeO-DMT N-Oxide is the oxidation product of 5-MeO-DMT. Oxidation can occur naturally (extended exposure to air) or artificially (by using Hydrogen Peroxide). The rate at which oxidation naturally occurs is unknown. 5-MeO-DMT N-oxide can be converted back to it's parent compound by dissolving in acetic acid solution, adding excess zinc, mixing for a couple of hours, filtering, adding a base and re-extracting.
