This is no DMT mimick, unlike 4-HO-MET is to 4-HO-DMT. The ethyl group is serving a purpose here ... it is not just quasi-legal substitute for DMT. The oral activity of MET makes it unique. Sounds like a good candidate for exploration into mostly uncharted territory.Tihkal entry for MIPT said:EXTENSIONS AND COMMENTARY : This is the simplest tryptamine with the somewhat magical pair of nitrogen substituents, a methyl group and an isopropyl group. Why should this combination allow a molecule to be orally active, even though the conventional thinking is that if there is a methyl group there, the amine oxidases will destroy it? My sense is that it is the N-small-group that does the job in the brain, and it is the N-big-group that keeps the inactivating oxidase enzymes away from the nitrogen atom. This is consistent with the N,N-dimethyl compound (DMT) not being orally active. Lying midway between DMT and DIPT is the ethyl compound, N-ethyl-N-methyltryptamine, or MET. It can be made by adding ethyl acetate to a reaction mixture where the formamide of tryptamine (see under NMT) has been reduced to NMT but there is still a goodly excess of hydride still remaining. The free base, as an oil, shows oral activity in the eighty to one hundred milligram range, so going from a methyl to an ethyl does indeed protect the compound from total enzymatic annihilation when taken orally.
I am basing my predictions on MET off of DET experiences. The pharmacology of MET should be much more similar to DET than DMT, because of the protection from MAO enzymes, but the effects might lie somewhere between the two. There's only one way to find out ... except I can't compare it to DET.Tiapan said:From Erowid report for DET
The best comparison would be to that of a very high dose LSD or Psilocybin experience, entering at the peak immediately, rather than waiting for 2-3hrs. The initial DET effect is far stronger than anything experienced with high LSD doses. The initial effects begin within 30secs increasing in strength at a massive rate reaching peak of maximum effect within 5 minutes The 'non-compus stage' (immobile stage - you really dont feel inclined to move much) this part of DET peak lasts around half an hour gradually weakening in effect to the level of a high LSD peak after about an hour. (One could walk relatively easily again). The effect diminished gradually for a further 2-3hrs, fading back to normality and ending with virtually no indication the experience had occured - very clean finish.
The tiny differenes are what make me drool. Something about that mystery of comparing how the presence of an extra carbon can change so much.Psychedelics_r_best said:GUYS!.................Damnit. This is just like DMT except it has a methyl and an ethyl group instead of two methyls. You don't need to go slack jawed, googly-eyed, and drooling when you see something a tiny bit different. !
I didn't mean I was going to put it in water. I just meant I was going to heat it to 100 deg C from the heat of boiling water. I finally got around to doing this simple test and it melted easily so it's definitely MET freebase.hugo24 said:-If its a salt,it will go into solution before it melts...
