Psychoactive Research chemicals are new synthetic substances that are structurally similar to the original drug, while being functional analogs. Research on the effects of, and treatment for, abuse of these drugs is limited due to the fact that they’re fairly new and have avoided mainstream notice. Research chemicals do not have a lot of human consumption data, and thus harm-reduction and special care should be taken if choosing to ingest them.

Psychedelics are drugs which cause profound changes in a one’s perceptions of reality, otherwise known as hallucinations. While under the influence of hallucinogens, users might see images, hear sounds or feel sensations. These chemicals offer some of the most intense psychological experiences and care should be taken when ingesting them.

Experimental drugs have extremely limited human consumption data. There is not enough reliable information about this substance. This is most likely because the substance is is not very old. Information on these substances is limite and incomplete. Please be cautioned. Always practice harm reduction.

Disclaimer: Psychedelic drugs offer some of the most power 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.

N-Methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine, a tryptamine analogue of DMT, a very uncommon drug with very few reports of human use. Described as ‘more psychedelic than hallucinogenic’ users report only mild visuals with some stimulation and cognitive effects. One of the more stable tryptamines.


It is structurally related to tryptamines like DMT, DiPT, and MET, although it is reported to produce qualitatively different effects. Its effects are generally described as mild, indistinct, and highly variable between users. In contrast to many related tryptamines, it is able to be taken orally.

MiPT was first synthesized and investigated by Alexander Shulgin and described in his book TiHKAL (“Tryptamines I Have Known and Loved”). In the commentary, Shulgin notes that “there is almost a total lack of visual phenomena. .

. no wave-forms, color distortion or object shape changes, and no eyes-closed imagery, unlike most N,N-disubstituted tryptamines. " Today, MiPT remains relatively uncommon and is either used as a recreational or an entheogenic substance.

It has been distributed online as a research chemical. Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of MiPT in humans, and it has little history of human usage.

Pharmacological Effects

Like with most psychedelic tryptamines, MiPT is thought to act principally as a 5-HT2A partial agonist. The psychedelic effects are believed to come from MiPT’s binding efficacy at the 5-HT2A receptors. However, the role of these interactions and how it results in the psychedelic experience continues to remain elusive.

Subjective Effects

The sensory effects of MiPT are said to be similar to those of DiPT but with less intensity at the same dose, and without the same bias towards producing auditory distortions.

Physical Effects

Psychological Effects

The cognitive effects of MiPT are reported to be mild for a psychedelic. Rather than producing distinct perceptual distortions, it is reported instead to act as a mild sensory amplifier.

Legal Status

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

  • Germany: MiPT 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.
  • United Kingdom: MiPT is a Class A controlled substance in the United Kingdom as a result of the tryptamine catch-all clause.
  • United States: MiPT is unscheduled in the United States. It may be considered an analogue of DMT, which is a Schedule I compound under the Controlled Substances Act. As such, the sale for human consumption or the use for illicit non-medical or industrial intents and purposes could be prosecuted as crimes under the Federal Analogue Act.
