Psychedelic Research Chemicals or RC Chems are new synthetic substances which are structurally similar to the original drug, while being functional analogs. Data on their effects limited due as they’re fairly new and do not have a lot of human consumption history.

Psychedelics are substances (natural or laboratory made) which cause profound changes in a one’s perceptions of reality. While under the influence of hallucinogens, users might hallcuniate visually and auditorily.

Disclaimer: Psychedelic drugs offer some of the most powerful and intense psychological experiences. Additionally these substances are illegal in many places. We understand that even though these substances are illegal, their use occurs frequently. We do not condone breaking of the law. By providing accurate information about these substances, we encourage the user to make responsible decisions and practice harm reduction.

A strange drug with an unknown mechanism of action. Some psychedelic effects alongside some effects non-characteristic of psychedelics like appetite enhancement. Reported as having rapid, intense and short acting entheogenic effects.


It is structurally related to tryptamines like 5-MeO-DiPT and DALT, although it is reported to produce distinct effects. 5-MeO-DALT was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin, who sent the first material regarding the synthesis and effects to a researcher in May 2004. This material was subsequently circulated online and the compound soon appeared on the online research chemical market.

In August 2004, the synthesis and effects of 5-MeO-DALT were officially published by Erowid. Reports linked to the detection of 5-MeO-DALT began to surface in 2007. Anecdotal reports characterize the effects of this substance as being primarily physical in nature, lacking the characteristic visual distortions or perceptual depth of most psychedelics.

Its headspace has been described as “shallow,” albeit suited for sexual contexts due to its potent stimulating and libidinous effects. It is also reported to produce more uncomfortable cardiovascular effects such as increased blood pressure and heart rate relative to other psychedelics. This has raised questions about possible toxicity associated with long-term or heavy uses.

Very limited data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 5-MeO-DALT, and it has a very short history of human use. It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.


It contains two allyl groups bound to the amino group and a 5-methoxy group bound to the indole ring of tryptamine.

It is a structural analog of DALT and 5-MeO-DiPT.

5-MeO-DALT is an off-white powder at room temperature.
