'Sacred Toad' Botanical Sticker
This Sacred Toad sticker is made from an original illustration painted by Libby England in watercolor.
The Sonoran Desert Toad/Colorado River Toad's (Incilius alvarius, formerly genus Bufo) native habitat runs along the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.
This is the most well-known "sacred toad", and for good reason. No other animal that we know of produces 5-MeO-DMT - a compound that is 4-6x more potent than regular DMT, and colloquially known as the "God molecule" due to its ability to invoke religious/spiritual experiences. The toad excretes high concentrations of the substance via its parotid glands (along with bufotenin and other toxins). The toad's other poisons are strong enough to kill a large dog, so caution must be taken to prepare the secretions before smoking (contrary to what popular culture may lead you to believe - "toad licking" is not widely practiced or advisable - it can actually make you extremely sick from various other pathogens present on their skin). 5-MeO-DMT is safe and completely non-toxic when the compound is isolated.
The trip usually lasts from 20-90 minutes, but feels like transcending time. It takes participants out of normal consciousness, into a state of temporary unconsciousness, with ego death making room for therapeutic exploration of the subconscious or an encounter with the divine. It has shown powerful emotional and spiritual healing effects. Some describe it "as a feeling of awareness, being connected to a higher power and feeling reborn" and often report altered mood and perception. Some even feel motivated to make major life changes due to their new outlook.
