Bufotenine earrings & pendant 

Bufotenine (5-HO-DMT, N,N-dimethylserotonin) is a tryptamine related to the neurotransmitter serotonin. also known by the chemical names 5-hydroxy-N,Ndimethyltryptamine. Bufotenin is similar in chemical structure to the psychedelics psilocin (4-HO-DMT), 5-MeO-DMT, and DMT. Bufotenin originates from the Bufo genus of toads, including a few species of psychoactive toads.In addition to bufotenine, Bufo venoms also contain digoxin-like cardiac glycosides, and ingestion of the venom can be fatal.

The toad uses these secretions as a toxic defence/natural deterrent to would be predators. The jewelry is safe-be warned that uninformed experimental use of the frog medicine can be dangerous. There is an interesting relationship between toxicants and intoxicants-considering that a substance that intoxicates in small doses can have a toxic effect in higher doses
