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.

This is an Experimental Substance with little data. This is most likely because the substance is is not very old. Information is limite and incomplete.

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.

Description

MET Also known as:

A rare psychedelic tryptamine, related to DMT and DET. Little information exists about the effects or pharmacology of this drug.

Summary

It is structurally related to DMT and is similarly unique among psychedelics due to its short-lived effects, rapid onset and progressive stages. The fumarate salt has been reported as being active via smoking/vaporization at 15-65 mg and orally at 80-110 mg. When smoked or vaporized it has been reported to produce effects similar to those of DMT with some distinct stylistic variations which include a more grounded headspace, stimulating physical effects, and reduced subjective intensity.

Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of MET, and it has a very brief history of human usage. Today, it is either used recreationally or as an entheogenic substance and has been exclusively distributed by online research chemical vendors since mid-2016. Due to its unstudied properties and effects, it is highly advised to approach this novel psychedelic substance with the proper precautions and harm reduction practices if choosing to use it.

Chemistry

MET

MET

Tryptamines share a core structure that comprises a bicyclic indole heterocycle attached at R3 to an amino group via an ethyl side chain.

Unlike DMT, which contains two methyl groups, MET contains groups of one methyl and one ethyl carbon chains bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine backbone.

Legal Status

Due to its relative obscurity, the possession and sale of MET is unscheduled in most countries.

  • Germany: MET is controlled under the NpSG (New Psychoactive Substances Act) as of July 18, 2019. Production and import with the aim to place it on the market, administration to another person and trading is punishable. Possession is illegal but not penalized.
  • New Zealand: MET is an analogue of DMT, so is a Class C controlled substance in New Zealand.
  • United Kingdom: MET is a Class A controlled substance in the UK under a generic clause originally added in 1977 that covers derivatives of tryptamine that are modified by alkyl substitution at the nitrogen atom of the tryptamine side chain.
  • United States: MET is unscheduled in the United States. However, it is likely that it would be considered a controlled substance analogue of DMT or DET, in which case, sales for human consumption or possession with the intent to ingest could be prosecuted under the Federal Analogue Act.
