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 rare tryptamine psychedelic closely related to DMT, with the interesting property of having little visual hallucinations, but strong auditory effects.
It is a structural analog of DMT and related to various psychedelic tryptamines such as 4-HO-DiPT, 5-MeO-DiPT, and MiPT. The first human trials of DiPT were undertaken in 1975 by Alexander Shulgin, who would co-author and publish a paper detailing its synthesis and human psychopharmacology in 1981. A summary of the synthesis and reports of human use is included in Shulgin's 1997 book TiHKAL ("Tryptamines I Have Known And Loved").
It has been sold online as a research chemical. While most psychedelics are known for producing vivid visual distortions, DiPT’s effects are reported to be primarily auditory in nature. Anecdotal reports have described it causing a downward shift in perceived pitch and other unusual distortions.
It has been suggested that DiPT may have value in neurological research due to its unique effects on auditory perception. Additional subjective effects of DiPT include a body high, moderate euphoria, mild visuals, dizziness, and nausea. Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of DiPT, and it has a limited history of human use.
It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.
Tryptamines share a core structure comprised of a bicylic indole heterocycle attached at R3 to an amino group via an ethyl side chain. DiPT also contains two isopropyl groups bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine backbone.
Isopropyl groups are a three carbon (propyl) chain bound at the middle carbon to the chemical structure.
DiPT has substituted analogues such 5-MeO-DiPT. DiPT is analogous to DMT, containing two isopropyl groups bound at RN instead of the two methyl groups found in DMT.

There is much speculation as to the nature of DiPT's aural distortion. At lower dosages, it has been reported to have an effect similar to a flanging, or a phase shift. At medium and higher dosages, the effect of DiPT is typically a radical shift downward in perceived pitch. This shift also tends to be nonlinear in that the shift downwards varies in relation to the initial pitch, for example, higher pitches are not lowered as much as already low pitches. This can produce bizarre sounds and render music disharmonious or unrecognizable These auditory effects of DiPT are very apparent in their occurrence and exhibit a full range of effects which commonly includes:
- Auditory enhancement
- Auditory distortion
- Auditory hallucination
- Tinnitus - This is more common in quiet areas or is exaggerated whilst yawning. It does not necessarily hurt in the ears and the pitch and frequency are not as high and constant.
- Ear pressure - This effect is generally mild but has been painful in some cases.
The cognitive effects of DiPT are reportedly very lucid and clear-headed in comparison to most other tryptamines.
- Increased music appreciation - This effect is subjective and depends on the person and the perceived tunes.
- Analysis enhancement
- Ego dissolution
- Thought acceleration
The psychedelic effects of DiPT are believed to come from its efficacy at the 5-HT2A receptor. However, the role of these interactions and how they result in the psychedelic experience remains subject to on-going scientific investigation.
- Spontaneous physical sensations
- Tactile enhancement
- Increased heart rate
- Increased blood pressure
- Excessive yawning
- Pupil dilation
The sensory effects of DiPT are mostly auditory, however may still produce visual effects, in a similar fashion to other serotonergic psychedelics, especially at higher dosages These effects can include:
- Drifting (melting, breathing, morphing and flowing)
- Color enhancement
- Depth perception distortions
- Geometry - The visual geometry produced by this compound can be described as somewhat similar in appearance to that of DMT.
- Florida: DiPT is a Schedule I controlled substance in the state of Florida. It is illegal to buy, sell, or possess.
