Was there ever any truth to the claim that TMA-2 could be extracted from sweet flag/calamus grass?
Me? Are you talking about when I was was waiting for a vendor I already paid to synth various mescaline analogues? If so, no I never did and it was really disappointing. I did end up getting escaline and proscaline, 3C-E and 3C-P...
You could say, using certain naming conventions that TMA is DOMeOYeah, me too. I tried TMA-6 back in 2006, I got given one dose, but I had a lot of tolerance from tripping all the time then, and it was basically threshold and I didn't even have enough of an experience to write a report. I managed to get a few doses of TMA-2 after reading a handful of reports of profound, beautiful experiences. And then I realized that it actually is a DOX, it just happened to be named as a TMA because of when it was synthesized (as an exploration of the TMA series). It is a 2,5-dimethoxy-4-XXX substituted phenethylamine, it's just that it is a TMA because it has 3 methoxy groups. The TMA series is all of the combinations of putting 3 methoxy groups onto the amphetamine skeleton in 3 of the 6 positions.
TMA-2 is generally the preferred positional isomer. Though TMA-6 has promise when tweaking the attachments at the 2 and 6 position.Excellent question, from what I understand and have read TMA-2 is indeed the best one, though opinions seem to vary on how good it actually is.
I always thought TMA-6 was interesting because there are very few psychedelics with any substitutions on the 6th position (TMA-6 is 2,4,6-trimethoxyamphetamine). As far as I know, the 2,4,6 pattern it uses is unique among the substances that has floated around this weird corner of human experience that we all have been able to share.
I actually got to try TMA-6 once, but it was during that time where evidently I had a lot of profound DOM experiences I can't remember. I just remember feeling like it never "arrived" and was generic. But then again so were almost all my trips at the time.
I was a crazy ass 23-24 year old.
